Welcome back, creative friends! I have such a fun stencil to share with you today! This Heart Confetti stencil is from Unity Stamps, and I wanted to show how you can use 1 stencil to make 3 cards.

Tone-on-Tone Ink Blending

For my first card, I used the stencil twice. First, I ink blended sky blue hearts. I then removed the stencil and ink blended more of the same blue over the top. This created a tone-on-tone heart design on my card background. You could leave your background like this and use it if you wish, but I decided to add the stencil back over my background, shift it to the side a bit, and add some Expanding Mousse over the top.

The Nuvo expanding mousse is a paste that you can brush or stencil on. Then, you can hit it with your heat tool and let it expand. I didn’t want my hearts to expand today, so I just let my mousse air dry.

Once dry, I trimmed down my background, added it to a card base, and layered a heart and a sentiment on top!

Rainbow Ink Blending

For my second card, I masked off a strip across the middle of my card front. I wanted to leave that area blank to add the sentiment on. Then, I added my stencil to ink blend color above and below the masked off strip.

I used the colors pink, yellow, and blue. These three hues that I used blend together well to create a bright rainbow! I started with pink, added yellow, and then blue. I overlapped the inks a bit to let them blend into the secondary colors. The results are a fun heart rainbow background!

I decided to cut down my background panel, pop up the stenciled cardstock on foam adhesive, and then add the sentiment in the middle part left blank.

White Pigment Ink Over Ombre Background

The final way I used this stencil was to add some white hearts over an ombre background. I ink blended my sky blue and yellow together, letting them overlap in the middle to create a bright green!

Then, I trimmed down my card front and added the stencil over the top. I used my white pigment ink over the stencil in order to add some subtle white hearts to my background. If you choose darker colors for the background, the white pigment ink would show up even more. For this card, I liked added the subtle hearts.

I finished this card by adding the sentiment along with a supporting sentiment stamped in black. I find that adding a little black really makes the bright colors pop!
