Viva Las Vegas Stamps and StencilGirl Team Up!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!!

This week, Viva Las Vegas Stamps and StencilGirl are teaming up to share some incredible inspiration!



Today, I am sharing my project, so let's take a peek!


Stamps and Stencils are a perfect combination!  You can create endless projects with just these 2 items!

To create my mini canvases, I began by apply a coat of gesso to 3 ATC cards.  Once the gesso was dry, I stamped each card with the Dictionary Page stamp.


Using Shimmerz Dazzelerz and the Journal Prompt Face Stencil from StencilGirl, I added texture to each ATC card.

I colored each face with Shimmerz Inklingz, and added a few bits and bobs to each card to create my whimsical face theme.


To create the base of each ATC canvas, I used some drawer knobs from a recent home remodel project.  So perfect!




I'm curious - do you prefer creating with stamps or stencils or BOTH?  I'd love to know.

Now how about some prizes for hopping along with us?

I love these little blingy canvases. They inspire me to try working small again. It's been a long time since my last atc. I started as a stamper and card maker and have a huge, very eclectic collection of stamps. Yet I will admit to a recent stencil addiction. I love both and try to find new ways to combine them.

Auntie Em said...

What amazing and interesting little canvases. I love the bling and the different ways you have added it. The touches of colour in the corners of the faces give them so much interest without shouting! Their names suit each.
Thank you for sharing! I would have looked at that stencil and never had any idea of how it could be used. :)

Kirsten Reed said...

Gorgeous project! I love how it all came together !

Ain't No Ninny said...

Your ATCs are so cool! Love that look! I've been glancin at the journal face stencil for a while and you've given me an idea what I can do with it. Thanks! deardeniseh at yahoo dot com

Julie Steed said...

OMG. Phenomenal!!

Gwen Lafleur said...

These are gorgeous! I love how everything came together so perfectly... awesome project idea, and I love all the details!

Kathy Adams said...

Wow! These are so interesting! I generally don't like "face" art, but I LOVE these little treasures! It's so inventive to use the drawer pulls as stands. I am truly inspired by these. Thank you for sharing, Tina. Always love your work!

I have to admit that I haven't used stencils yet (I took a class but that's it so far). I have some stencils. I make lots of greeting cards and have always stamped them but I'll be going to the stencils more when I get comfortable with them. Love the triptych. A small enough project that I wouldn't get bogged down if I started making a mess. thanks.

Very interesting and very unique. Opens up a whole new world for me as my work is usually along the lines of journal pages, cards and the like. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tina, thank you for using our stencils :) I truly adore what you have done here. I have seen a million different versions of Pam's face stencil and you took it to an entirely new level - well done!!

Love your use of stencils and stamps. gorgeous projects

Nan said...

Interesting use of the dimensional paint! Loved the way you "personalized" each one by adding different elements.

I used to do a lot more stamping; now use mainly background and texture stamps on layered projects. Use more stencils now than I used to.

Answer to your question is....BOTH!

Thanks for sharing your fun project! My stash contains more stamps than stencils... And all the stencils have been bought during the past two months, and never been used ( I have maybe 4) going through these hops I decided I have to open those pouches, and probably start buying some texture pastes and... All sorts of other stuff too :)

Linsey said...

These are quite possibly the most exquisite mixed media ATC's I've ever seen!!! I'm in awe of your fantastic talent--what a pleasure it is to peruse your blog too! You are incredibly inspiring!!! thanks so much! :D
