Jillibean Soup | New Stencil Sets

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Getting messy isn't one of my favourite pass-times which means that occasionally I need to 'toughen up' and get my hands dirty! So, when I recieved the new Jillibean Soup - Stamp & Stencil Sets I knew the time had come to make friends with mess.

Luckily I spied the gorgeous new woodgrain and doily set which made it slightly less traumatic to get texture paste on my hands, desk, shirt and face... seriously that stuff seems to spread when you're not looking.

TIP | The stencils are quite pliable in comparison to other brands which make them ideal when you want a bit of flexibility to your design. So when it comes to washing your stencil and placing it back onto the clear plastic sheet I suggest that you lie the stencil down on a hard surface and have the backing sheet in your hand as it is stiffer and much easier to manoeuvre into position.

The sticky reverse side was wonderful for keeping the stencil in place when I added texture paste to my cardstock and it pealed off again without any problems at all. And because the stencil is wafer thin you get a lovely crisp image.

Using my current favourite colour combination of Mint and Tangerine I stamped and heat embossed two different doily designs then mounted them on top of each other using foam pop dots to create a bit of dimension.
