Sunday Stencils #6 - Using Stencils on Cork

Hi everyone and happy sunday!

I hope you're having a great week! The last week was CRAZY because the video hop was such a huge success, items have been sold out (yes, we will re-stock them all as soon as possible!), we got a huge amount of awesome feedback, emails, questions and comments and we're so grateful for everyone who took part in this party!

Let's get to today's card:

When I thought about other ways to use stencils I knew I would love to try them on a different surface than the paper that I use on my cards. Creating a pattern on cork is perfect for christmas - so now that we started the christmas crafting, this is something I'd like to share :)

Watch the video to see how this card was created:

  • self-adhesive cork is a little more sturdy than usual cork sheets. it's therefore easier to cut
  • you can blend two or more pigment inks for more interest
  • if you want to keep your stencil in place easily you can add some spray adhesuve to your stencil




Cardstock: Simon Says Stamp - Ultra Thick, Bazzill - Vellum
Adhesive Cork Sheet: Keren Foster
Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black Memento - Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Simon Says Stamp - Teal, Audrey Blue
Embossing Powder: Hero Arts - white
Coloring: Copic
Other: Zig Clear Wink Of Stella

All the updates about re-stocked products can be found on our Facebook Page :)


  1. This is fabulous work Christine! I love how the cork adds a lot of dimension and those snowflakes are so cute! :)

    I made a card for ABNH Christmas event and the layout was so similar to this one! :D

  2. Dear Christine, thank you very much for sharing the video with us. Where did you buy the dimensional adhesive? Unfortunately, I didn't understand well.

    1. This is what I use: :)

    2. Thank you very much for your very fast reply. I can't wait to see your new release.

  3. Hi Christine,
    die Karte ist wunderschön! Ich bin ganz verliebt in sie ;-) Danke auch für die Info und den Link zu dem doppelseitigen Klebeband! Das habe ich gestern gleich bestellen müssen. :-)
    Liebe Grüße
