Club Scrap HOMESTEAD Blog Hop!


Good morning bloggers!!  Have you seen Club Scraps' new Homestead kit?  It is flipping AWESOME!!  I totally LOVE this kit!

So this month I decided to combine a couple of techniques.  I love these stamps and creating sunsets, but then decided to use the same idea but within a stencil.  These are fast and easy.

Supplies needed:
Club Scrap "Homestead" GTG Kit
Sponge applicator
Removable painter's tape

1.  Start by punching a small circle out of a scrap piece of card stock.  This will be used for the sun.  You can use the entire circle for a full sun, or cut a section off of the sun, to create a setting sun.

2.  Next take the white cardstock and place a stencil on it, using the removable painter's tape, tape the cardstock and stencil down.
3.  If you want the sun yellow, sponge on yellow where you are going to place the sun, otherwise you can let the sun be white.  Place the circle cardstock, where you want the sun. You can temporarily adhere if you the right kind of adhesive, otherwise just use your finger and hold it in place.  Using a sponge, ink neon orange on the rest of the visible cardstock.  Using sponge, ink darker orange on the outer 3/4-1 in. edge of the stencil.  Now you can sponge some red on the very outer edges of the stencil.

4.  You can remove the stencil now - this is what it will look like:
I just love the graduated change in colors.

5.  Using black ink, stamp the Windmill image and sentiment.  Mat card front and adhere to card back.

Stencils used are from Club Scrap kits from July 09 Memoirs, May 2011 Papillon, and October 2004
