Using Nuvo Mousse With your Stencils

Hello everyone, it’s Colleen from Maple Syrup Designs here for Craftin’ Desert Divas! Today I am going to be showing you how to use Nuvo Embellishment Mousse with your stencils.

There are so many different techniques you can do with Nuvo Mousse, and I will show you more in the future, but for today’s card I used a very simple technique that anyone will be able to do.  This can be done with any stencil, but I am using Craftin’ Desert Divas Cloudy Sky Stencil.

  1. Place your stencil in the corner of a piece of smooth white cardstock (my preference is Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth), tape down with some washi tape.
  2. Choose the colours of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse you would like and start by simply dipping your finger in the pot and applying in circular motions. For this Card I used: Lilac Lavender, Aquamarine, Cornflower Blue, Custard Cream, Coral Calypso and Peony Pink.
  3. Apply these in whatever pattern you like totally filling in the stencil.
  4. Remove the stencil.
  5. In all the white borders apply glue from a deco foil glue pen and sprinkle with Frosting powder, heat set with your heat gun.
  6. Trim the card down to a 5.25″ square.
  7. Take a piece of white glitter card and cut to 5.5″ square, then using a Frame Punch Board, cut out a 1/2″ frame.
  8. Using double sided tape attach the frame to the front of the cloud panel.
  9. Attach this whole panel onto a 6″ square card blank, set aside.
  10. Using the Craftin’ Desert Diva’s Sparkle stamp set cut out the following stamps and colour using your favourite medium (I use Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers).
  11. Cut out the word “Happy” using the Craftin’ Desert Diva’s Happy Die using aqua and white card.
  12. Affix the sentiment and two unicorns to the card and you are done and have one bright and happy card suitable for many occasions.

  1. I never thought to use ‘fingers’ as a way to apply the mousse; simple and effective! Smitten with this magical, shimmery, colourful card you’ve designed. The unicorns? A-DOR-A-BLE!
