Plastic Patterns - Technique Blog Hop...

It's almost Friday, y'all!!!'s already the MIDDLE OF OCTOBER which means we are at the end of the September/October Supplemental Catalog and well into the 2020-2021 Core Catalog. I mention the Core Catalog because on Page 81, there are some NEW pre-designed stencil sheets that we are featuring in this Plastic Patterns Technique Blog Hop this evening!

We have ten CTMH Consultants playing along this month so it won't take you long to hop through and get tons of inspiration! If you're coming from Brandi's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME!

Let's take a look at the card I made using Stencil Pack 3. I LOVE this Stencil Pack because one of the 12 x 12 stencil sheets actually has NINE LITTLE SQUARES that can be used all by themselves, which is what I did here!

I used the polka dot pattern from Stencil Pack 3 and our NEW Distress Oxide Inks in Abandoned Coral. Using my multi-purpose mat made the clean up SUPER EASY and our NEW Mini-Blending tool made it a little less messy on my fingers!
After my polka dots were set, I used the same color and my Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink to sponge over the card front, blending in the line between the two...
I finished the card off with an oval cut using the Comfort & Joy - Cardmaking Stamp Set & Thin Cuts. I LOVE that I can pull shapes from my Thin Cuts that come with my stamp sets and use them all by themselves. I also pulled out my Simple Serif Thin Cuts to cut my sentiment...a simple HI (we all need cards that say that!) I just used the Thin Cuts but you can also use the stamp set to stamp your letters on top of the Thin Cuts...sooooo COOL!!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Hop on over to Alyson's Blog and see what PLASTIC PATTERNS she is using this evening!

Don't forget, if you get lost along the way, you can always visit Melissa's Blog for a complete list of hoppers!


  1. I love that two tone look with the inks and stencil. Nice job.

  2. Love this - great idea to go over the stencil area with the same ink but in a softer colour.

  3. Beautiful! I love how you layered the oxide inks!

  4. I love this! I love the layering of the colours and those work so well together!

  5. So cute with the 2 shades of colour. Love the clean and simple approach to your card :)


Thanks for showing some {{{love}}}....
