STAMPlorations Christmas in the Air July Feature

Monika and I are continuing the Christmas in the Air Feature Projects:-)
We hope to inspire you to add to your Christmas stash too!

We will be hosting July, September and November Feature Projects. 
Shery will randomly pick a winner for a prize if you comment
on our blog posts and the STAMPlorations July Christmas in the Air post:-)

I just discovered a new to me Split-4 Stamping Technique, which gives you 4 cards.
I changed it up a bit and used a Stencil instead of stamps.
I used the new CRAFTplorations Stencil by Sanna,  "Christmas Wreaths",
  which worked out really well! 

I will be sharing several photos showing the Split-4 Stenciling Technique using
STAMPlorations Products.

8 1/2" X 11" White 100# CS
Trim to 8" X 10 1/2"
Score at 4" and 5 1/4"

Step 2
Secured Sanna "Christmas Wreath" Stencil with masking tape.
Used Distress Oxide Inks and Make Up Brushes for ink blending.

Step 3
"Christmas Wreath"  Stencil after using
make up brushes and eye shadow applicators to blend inks.

Step 4
Removed Stencil and loved the beautiful Christmas Wreaths!
You can see the scored lines.

Step 5
Cut scored lines with paper cutter for 4 card fronts.
Then attached to red card stock and white card bases.
Added CRAFTplorations Clear Stickers and outlined stickers.
Traced Wreath images with black Ultra fine Sharpie and 
added Wink of Stella for Shimmer!
All Done!

Finished Cards!

  1. Your stenciled wreath is just perfect for the split 4, Nancy! Love the large size ... and beautiful with your ink blending. xx

  2. Very cool idea with the stencil wreath creating 4 cards with it! I absolutely love that idea!

  3. I love the way you created 4 cards with the Christmas Wreaths stencil!

  4. I always love when more than one card can be made with one basic design. These cards are a great way to do that. tfs-stay well.

  5. So beautiful and a clever way to make multiples

  6. Thank you Nancy for sharing the splitting the wreath and making 4 cards....
    I just love this technique and I will give this a try.

  7. Nancy, I love your wreath stencil for the split 4 technique! Thanks for all the photos showing your steps. Loving the sparkle and the sentiments, too. Your cards turned out great!

  8. the technique works so well with the stencil Nancy, great idea and great cards. Love the design :)

  9. Pretty set of wreath cards. Thanks for sharing this technique.

  10. I love how your split 4 cards turned out, Nancy! That stencil worked perfectly and you did a fabulous job of inking those little berries and leaves!

  11. That is so cool to make the four cards and that stencil is gorgeous. I really love how your cards turned out and the clear stickers are the bomb.

  12. Christmas cards are my favorite & I just love your creative 4 cards from one stenciled sheet! Love these, Nancy!

  13. I love this idea Nancy - the partial wreaths are so much more fun than one full wreath! Vicky x

  14. What an excellent stencil for this technique. Such a good idea when multiple cards are needed as at Christmas. I think I will give it a go when I get to my Christmas cards, can't think about properly yet though. I love these and how you have used the colours xx

  15. You are a genius! What a fabulous idea this is - and they're beautiful.

  16. What a stunner of a wreath stencil Nancy and perfect for the fun technique. Thank you for the step by steps and what an amazing effect and I love all of your fabulous cards x.

  17. What a great idea, doing all 4 at once. you are so smart. Really pretty and simple.

  18. Oh this is fabulous!
    Great way to use the
    stencil and make all
    the cards.

  19. Oh what a fab stencil to use for the split four technique. Another beautiful set of cards.

  20. Nancy, fabulous set of Christmas cards for this fun technique! So creative using a stencil. I,m going to try more...stenciled, die cuts. Should be fun.

  21. What a wonderful variation of Christmas wreath cards, Nancy! The Sprit-4 Stamping technique worked beautifully for the wreath design. The shimmer of the WoS is so pretty. Using make up brushes and eye shadow applicators for smaller sections is a clever idea! Outlining the clear sentiment stickers gives them a nice different look. Thank you so much for your step-by-step photo tutorial! Hugs.. Hideko

    1. Thank you Hideko...I had so much fun making this Split-4 card set and always happy when I can make multiples for my Christmas Card stash:-) Love and Hugs...Nancy
