Stamps & Stencils card by designer Melinda Spinks

Hello and welcome... It's Melinda with you today and I have a card to share that was created using one of the new Jillibean Soup - Stamp & Stencil Sets.

I must admit I'm a huge fan of woodgrain and doilies so when these two patterns were merged into the one stamp & stencil set I knew it was the first one I was going to use.

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.
