Stay Positive with Ceal

Hello Everyone!

It’s Ceal, here with today’s inspiration. What do you think of the January release? It’s amazing huh? 

For today’s card I am using the Sparkling Palms stencil along with the Striped Sentiments stamp set.  I did a little experiment with the stencil and I like the results. 


To create this card I started with a white top folding card base, a panel of glossy cardstock, Matte Gel medium, the Sparkling Palms stencil, Striped Sentiments Stamp set and the Stripe die

Instead of using the transfer I used some Liquitex Matte Gel medium. Using a spatula I covered the stencil with matte gel medium and allowed it to dry overnight. Next I took some heat activated foil that is meant to be used with the Gemini Foil Press (I wanted to see if it worked with the Minc), placed it on top, placed the panel in between a folded sheet of copy paper and ran it through the Minc machine. The copy paper wrinkled and this is the result I got and I love it. It has a mixed media wook without the mess.  To finish the card I adhered the foiled panel to a white card base and used the Stripe die to emboss the sentiment on. 

I love the stay positive sentiment, it’s so fitting for these crazy times these days.

If you are like me and love stencils, Erin Lee Creative has some awesome ones. 

I hope you will give them a try!

Until the next time, Stay Crafty!
