My Favorite Things & Xyron Blog Hop: "Thanks" Card

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a Thanks card that I created using My Favorite Things and Xyron products- Such a great combination. In the card below, I was able to create a fun card using MFT’s Wildflowers stencilCheerful Blessing stamp set,  Xyron's New Creative Station and DCWV's Paint and Create card. Take a peek at my easy and quick tutorial below:


My Favorite Things:

·        Stencil (LJD-Wildflowers)

·        Stamp Set (Cheerful Blessing)

DCWV Watercolor Paper Card Set (Paint and Create)

Black Cardstock: 5 x 7 1/4

Black Ink

Ink Sprays (Orange, Lime Green)


Step One: Lay stencil on Paint & Create card and spray inks on the card and stencil to transfer the stencil pattern.

Step Two: Lay watercolor paper on top of inked stencil to absorb the remaining loose ink. Let dry. Note: This extends the use of the ink that remains on the top of the stencil.
Step Three: Using black ink, stamp sentiment onto inked card.

Step Four: Run stamped card through the New Creative Station and adhere the back of the card to black cardstock layer.  Continue embellishing as desired. Note: This adds a matted layer to the card to enhance the overall design.

Thanks Card by Karen Jiles Supplies Stencil, Stamps: My Favorite Things; Paint & Create Card: DCWV; Ink: Ranger; Adhesive: Xyron; Other: Cardstock

I love this card because of the use of sprays and stencils. I love the loose feeling of the card. Putting it on black card stock to match the sentiment was a good decision, it really pops!
