using glossy accents with pretty pink posh stencils

Do you use Glossy Accents when making handmade cards? I do, in fact it's one of my very favorite supplies and I love using it with stencils!

But before we talk more about Glossy Accents, let's talk about Pretty Pink Posh and their birthday release! I adore PPP's products and the amazing people behind the awesome brand!!! I'm thrilled that I get to help celebrate their 8th birthday today with a blog hop. And I'm delighted I get to share how fun their layering stencils are!!!

And one more thing before we talk cards, there are 3 $50 gift certificates to Pretty Pink Posh up for grabs! Enter to win by leaving comments along the hop by 11:59pm PST on February 16th, 2022. The winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

Ok, now let's talk about the super cute Layered Cupcake stencil and how you can use it with inks and Glossy Accents!

I created a quick video to show you the process...


Here are my tips for using Glossy Accents with stencils...

  • less is more...start with less Glossy Accents and make fewer passes with your squeegee/straight edge to help prevent "leaking" under the stencil. Add more Glossy Accents and more passes as needed. Spray adhesive for stencils like Pixie spray can also help with "leaking" but I'm rubbish with spray adhesive, LOL!
  • work quickly...clean your stencil & squeegee quickly to prevent the Glossy Accents from drying on your tools. I live in the rainy PNW so I might a little more time to clean my stencil but if you live in a drier climate, a container of soapy water is great to have nearby.

Your next stop on the hop is Channin Pelletier's amazing blog and I'm sure she is going to wow us!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Carly, Okay so I have been cardmaking for many years and I have to say that with all of the cards I've used Glossy Accents on and with all of the videos of others who use Glossy Accents on their cards I have NEVER seen this technique of squeezing it on and then spreading it throughout the entire card (on the stencil of course). What an awesome and ingenious idea!!!! Thanks SO much for that inspiration!!!! Maybe now my Glossy Accents will get more use! LOL Adorable card!!!
