Stencils and Dies Prize Package
Here's my creation for today:
Today's creation was done using the positive pieces from yesterday's design ( another name for this is called paper piecing) and glued onto Matte Yellow Embossing Paste.
 Remember yesterday I used the elephant stencil, traced it onto the back of the splattered piece of paper and cut out the pieces, set them aside and blogged about the negative that you see here below.

Yesterday's elephant creation was cut out of sprayed paper and placed over the top of  black paper that was stenciled with the mosaic background stencil LJ901...or the negative image.

Well, today I designed a card using these cut out pieces or the positive set. This is a technique called paper piecing. People that have dies do it all the time, but since the elephant isn't a die I had to cut out the pieces by hand. Here are the two stencils I used today, well actually I also used the Celebrate stencil LS89, so that would be three stencils:

To prepare the paisley design a stenciled the surface of the gray background cardstock using the Paisley stencil LX7009 with a black Memento ink by Imagine Crafts and then added some color to that stenciled area with the soufflé pens in a florescent yellow. Next I paste-embossed this paisley background with the Dreamweaver Matte Yellow Embossing Paste (DMYP) using the elephant stencil (LG756) and set it aside to dry well.

The pieces which were cut out from the elephant stencil yesterday (or the positive set) were glued to the now dry Matte Yellow Embossing Paste using white glue. The irRESISTible spray in a metallic by Imagine Crafts, added not only a sparkle but also a texture to this guy. LOVE these fun products from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko. The celebrate stencil LS89 was also paste-embossed with the same Matte Yellow Embossing Paste (DMYP) and made into a tag as an embellishment and tied with the May Arts Ribbon bow.

Remember to take time to see what everyone else has created today and leave some love in the way of an encouraging comment or two. In fact an extra gift will be randomly chosen from those who comment on my blog about whether or not you would use the elephant if we made him into a die for paper piecing.

Great seeing what you made with the positive parts of the elephant. I like the paisley background. I would definitely use an elephant die for paper piecing.

BurningRubber said...

Susanne said...

Love how you have used the positive elements of the elephant and the paisley background is fab.

Cin said...

This cute elephant would make a great baby or masculine card!

snazzyjj said...

I think this elephant is super cute, but I probably wouldn't buy the die just cut him out like you did. Love how clever you were using both the positives and negative.

Golda said...

This is great and I love the touches of yellow.

Heidi Schleimer said...

Lovely project. I love the elefant.

Terri (blindstamper) said...

Love what you did with the elephant...so clever!

Louise said...

Great use of the leftover pieces, and I love the paisley background!

LynB said...

Your card is so adorable!!! Lovin' the colors too. Great idea to show both possibilities with the positive and negatives.

Pam Hornschu said...

Love that chartreuse and gray combo! So cool with all the speckles!

Janice K said...

Two cards that are very different. Today's is lovely, the bright yellow makes a super contrasting colour. A die would be great especially if you produced a smaller (baby elephant) size one as well. x

Jan said...

Great projects. Thanks for sharing.

CraftyJo said...

Wow, this card is fantastic! I love the colors and stenciling.

Kaypeanut said...

The paisley background is so suited to an elephant card. It's lovely.

Bella Carta at Art 'n Soul said...

Lynell, both versions of the elephant stencil are terrific. I especially enjoy the whimsey in the second version. And I would never had thought of using the paisley background in the first version; can't wait to try that.

Amante del Papel said...

I like more this second card, is great!

ionabunny said...

I think this elephant would make a gorgeous die. Really like both your positive and negative cards. I would love to paper piece this elephant and having it as a die would make it so easy.

Denise Bryant said...

Awesome cards! Love the elephant and I'd love to see it as a die!

Heather Thompson said...
