Reindeer Set Small Stencil Ideas

Darkroom Door - Monday, December 09, 2019

Hi there! Today we are sharing lots of different ways to use the new Reindeer Set Small Stencil!  



This stencil set consists of a reindeer shape stencil and the matching solid shape which can be used as a mask and in lots of other ways. The reindeer can be used facing left or right, depending on what suits your project! We have lots of projects to share with you showing how this stencil set can be used! 


To start with, here’s a really simple and effective idea by Rachel, using Distress Inks to sponge through the stencil. Rachel has used Brushed Corduroy and Ground Espresso Distress Inks. Stamp a sentiment from the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set underneath and add a little red bling to the nose if you’d like it to be Rudolf :) 

Here are some ideas by Connie: 


Connie has used Viva Decor modelling paste through the stencil for this first card then stamped some elements from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set.  


For this card Connie used Bead Glitter Gel by Faber-Castell. It gives such a beautiful effect! You can read more about Connie’s projects here


Anna-Karin has created a winter wonderland using the reindeer stencil with texture paste and Distress Mica Flakes! It’s a beautiful scene. You can read the full tutorial on Anna-Karin’s blog here


Christmas doesn’t always have to be traditional colours either, here’s a card by Godelieve using a black and white theme. The white sponging looks really frosty against the black background! See more about this card here


Godelieve used foil for this card which makes the reindeer look glittery when you move it in the light! Read more here.  


Anneke created this card by sponging dark blue paint through the reindeer stencil and after it dried, she placed the reindeer mask over the reindeer, then sponged white paint through the Dots stencil to create the background. The smaller stamps are from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set. Read more here.  


It’s really easy to create a winter scene with the stencil and Distress Ink. Anneke used a piece of torn scrap paper to put across the bottom of the card, then placed the reindeer mask in place and sponged blue Distress Inks for the sky. Once the sky is done, swap the stencils around so you can sponge the reindeer shape. To read more about this card, visit Anneke’s blog here.  


If you love gel printing or have some spare gel printed backgrounds, here are some great card ideas! Anneke has used gel prints for the backgrounds for these cards and stamped over the top using a sentiment from Yuletide Greetings Stamp Set. For the reindeer, Anneke sponged embossing ink through the stencil and embossed with white embossing powder. It creates a lovely texture! To read more about these cards, visit Anneke’s blog here.

Christmas Tree Set Small Stencil Ideas

Darkroom Door - Thursday, November 21, 2019

Hi there! Today we are sharing lots of different ways to use the new Christmas Tree Set Stencil!  



This stencil set consists of a Christmas Tree shape stencil and the matching solid shape which can be used as a mask and in lots of other ways. We have lots of projects to share with you showing how this stencil set can be used! 


To start with, here’s a really simple and effective idea by Rachel, using Distress Inks to sponge through the stencil. Rachel has used Peeled Paint Distress Ink and sponged more ink around the edges so it has a darker edge. While the stencil is in place, stamp the Starry Night Background Stamp through the stencil and emboss with gold embossing powder. Stamp a sentiment from the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set underneath. 

Here are some ideas by Connie: 


Connie has created a card and matching envelope using the Christmas Tree Stencil, then placed the Christmas Tree mask over where she has sponged, to use the Mesh Stencil over the top. A great way to add pattern to your background! 


Connie has also created some Christmas decorations using the stencil and trimming them out! A clever idea and great way to decorate your home! You can read more about Connie’s projects here.



Here are some colourful cards by Anneke where she has inked up the stencil with Distress Ink and pressed it onto the card front! Anneke has used different colours for the inside stencil shape to the outside, so it gives the card more colour and contrast! It’s a wonderful way to use both stencil pieces and create some fabulous quick cards! Here’s two more: 



To see step by step instructions to create these cards, please visit Anneke’s blog here.  



Anneke has also created a fun art journal page using the Christmas Tree Set Stencil with paint! Anneke has also used the Christmas Small Stamp, Christmas Script Background Stamp, Carved House Stamp Set, Checkered & Grid Texture Stamps. Read more about this project here.
