While browsing on the internet, I stumbled onto a video on YouTube and instantly I knew we had to do this technique in my September classes. I have quite a stash of stencils, so the hunt began as I thought about what theme I wanted to use. With summer behind us, I decided to make a fall card.
My inspiration came from this video by Sandy Allnock, here.
I chose to use the maple leaf from Stampin’ Up’s Leaflet Framelits, filling in the center with honeycombs from a stencil I made on my e-cutter.
Tools you’ll need:
Leaflets Framelits (#138283)
Micron Pen (.05 tip)
Trace the inside edge of the framelit diagonally on the vanilla panel (3 1/2″ square).
Lay the honeycomb stencil over the traced leaf. Using the Micron Pen, trace only the honeycombs that are within the borders of the leaf. You’ll have lots of partial honeycombs along the edges.
Color the honeycombs with colored pencils. I used the following 3 Prismacolors:
PC 1005 Limepeel
PC 1032 Pumpkin Orange
PC 1034 Goldenrod
As a border around the leaf, I chose a stamp from one of last year’s Sale-a-Bration sets, Hello (now retired). Turns out that it was the exact size that was needed and I liked how it looked. Perfect!
The background panel is Crumb Cake card stock and is stamped with the Woodgrain background stamp (now retired) in Crumb Cake ink. The sentiment is from Me=Grateful stamp set and is stamped with Early Espresso ink.
