Urban Scribble with Lindsay Weirich from The Frugal Crafter

 

Lindsay Weirich spent a quick minute to put together a masculine card over the weekend using Nathalie’s Urban Scribble Foam Stamp, Cling Rubber and Stencil Set.

 

Lindsay incorporated all the tools in this set and it created quite a awesome masculine style scene card. There are just so many possibilities in one set, we know there will be endless creativity with Urban Scribbles.

Fashion Dame with Lindsay Weirich from The Frugal Crafter

1-20160425 Nat Kalbach and Friends

Lindsay Weirich is having some vintage fun with Nathalie Kalbach’s Cling Fashion Dame Rubber Stamp Set in a video tutorial and it’s perfect timing with the blog hop we just had this week. Here’s her video, enjoy!

Two tips to keep in mind that are different from the way Lindsay used the products. First, ink your stencil flat on the table, not in your hand. Second, when peeling off your stencil, turn it upside down and peel the paper off the stencil, holding the stencil flat against the table. These two tricks will keep your stencil from getting bent and warped, warping will impair its function if used later with paste or sprays.

Products that we spotted in the video are:

Nathalie Kalbach Stencils on a Dreamweaver Thursday

BLOG TEMPLATE

Now that we are in full stride on our hop with Nathalie and Friends, it is time to bring in our Dreamweaver Thursday focus with stencils and since we are hopping with product sets that include stencils we are in double stencil mania.

Each of the three Foam and Cling Rubber Stamp sets by Nathalie Kalbach include a quality plastic stencil that add depth and dimension to a project. Let’s have a close up look at each stencil from these projects.

The stencil included in the Bird set is more like our templates as it has removable pieces used for masks. The intricate designs of the stencils in the Elephant and Urban Scribbles have great textural depth for layering. Each stencil design add complementary details to the stamps as well which gives us room to bring out Dreamweaver Stencils to fill in the gaps.

Here is a fun example of bringing our Dreamweaver Stencils into mixed media with a journal page by Nathalie Kalbach.

A tip using your metal stencils with sticky mediums is to always keep the stencil flat on a surface while peeling away the paper substrate, that way the metal stencil is not damaged or warped and ready for the next project.
