Reindeer Set Small Stencil Ideas

Darkroom Door - Monday, December 09, 2019

Hi there! Today we are sharing lots of different ways to use the new Reindeer Set Small Stencil!  



This stencil set consists of a reindeer shape stencil and the matching solid shape which can be used as a mask and in lots of other ways. The reindeer can be used facing left or right, depending on what suits your project! We have lots of projects to share with you showing how this stencil set can be used! 


To start with, here’s a really simple and effective idea by Rachel, using Distress Inks to sponge through the stencil. Rachel has used Brushed Corduroy and Ground Espresso Distress Inks. Stamp a sentiment from the Stitched Christmas Stamp Set underneath and add a little red bling to the nose if you’d like it to be Rudolf :) 

Here are some ideas by Connie: 


Connie has used Viva Decor modelling paste through the stencil for this first card then stamped some elements from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set.  


For this card Connie used Bead Glitter Gel by Faber-Castell. It gives such a beautiful effect! You can read more about Connie’s projects here


Anna-Karin has created a winter wonderland using the reindeer stencil with texture paste and Distress Mica Flakes! It’s a beautiful scene. You can read the full tutorial on Anna-Karin’s blog here


Christmas doesn’t always have to be traditional colours either, here’s a card by Godelieve using a black and white theme. The white sponging looks really frosty against the black background! See more about this card here


Godelieve used foil for this card which makes the reindeer look glittery when you move it in the light! Read more here.  


Anneke created this card by sponging dark blue paint through the reindeer stencil and after it dried, she placed the reindeer mask over the reindeer, then sponged white paint through the Dots stencil to create the background. The smaller stamps are from the Christmas Reindeer Stamp Set. Read more here.  


It’s really easy to create a winter scene with the stencil and Distress Ink. Anneke used a piece of torn scrap paper to put across the bottom of the card, then placed the reindeer mask in place and sponged blue Distress Inks for the sky. Once the sky is done, swap the stencils around so you can sponge the reindeer shape. To read more about this card, visit Anneke’s blog here.  


If you love gel printing or have some spare gel printed backgrounds, here are some great card ideas! Anneke has used gel prints for the backgrounds for these cards and stamped over the top using a sentiment from Yuletide Greetings Stamp Set. For the reindeer, Anneke sponged embossing ink through the stencil and embossed with white embossing powder. It creates a lovely texture! To read more about these cards, visit Anneke’s blog here.

Take Flight Small Stamp Ideas

Darkroom Door - Sunday, December 01, 2019

Hi there! Today we’d like to share some project ideas using the Take Flight Small Stamp! This is a fun sized sentiment, perfect for tags, cards and other projects! 



Here’s a few different ways it can be used:


Rachel has stamped the Take Flight Small Stamp with Deep Purple and Aquamarine Archival Inks, and stamped a small tag with the Sunshine Background Stamp using Coffee Archival Ink. Added these to a spotted Kraft card using foam adhesive for some dimension. A fun way to layer up the card! 



For this card, Rachel used the same coloured inks as the first card, but combined it with the Fine Flowers Vol 1Stamp Set and the Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp for a soft watercolour look. 


This is a beautiful spread in a small planner using the Take Flight Small Stamp with Mint Chip Embossing Powder. Godelieve has also embossed the Small Butterflies Stencil

with the same embossing powder, then sponged Distress Inks around the page. To see more about this project, please visit Godelieve’s blog here.  



Here’s a beautiful card by Godelieve where she has sponged ink through the Small Butterflies Stencil and stamped the Take Flight Small Stamp over the top with Jet Black Archival Ink. Godelieve created a border using stamps from Tropical Leaves and Full Bloom Vol 2 Stamp Sets and coloured them with Twinkling H20’s. Read more about this card here.  


For this card Connie has combined the Sunshine Background Stamp with the Take Flight Small Stamp and stamped both in Jet Black Archival ink. A highlight of colour was created by stamping the butterfly in Red Geranium ink on a few areas over the card and using a red card base. 


Connie created a background with Distress Oxide inks and stamped a few butterflies from the Butterflies Stamp Set over the background. Connie stamped the Take Flight Small Stamp and trimmed it out into separate strips before adhering it onto the card. You can read more about these cards on Connie’s blog here.  



Here’s a cute idea from Godelieve where she has stamped the little butterflies in red and trimmed them out to layer on top of the first stamped image to give it a pop of colour and dimension! Godelieve also used the Honeycomb Background Stamp and Wings Stamp Set. Read more about this card here

These are just a few ideas to show how this stamp can be used! If you’d like to see more Small Stamp projects, check out our Small Stamps Pinterest Board!
