Bright and sunny! For this card I used the retired SU sunburst stencil and sponged it in Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight. The sentiment is stamped on both the Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight circles and then matched up.
The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts and is stamped in Versafine Onux Black and heat embossed in clear. Then I got out my Wind of Stella pen and just went crazy – seriously – maybe a bit too crazy! And sequins (again.) Well, if nothing else, it sparkles! Hugs, Fran
For this Bella card, I stenciled the background using Karen Burniston’s flower stencil using embossing paste. After watercoloring the image, I popped up the balloon and scalloped the bottom of the card. I think this is such a sweet stamp – perfect for so many things! Hugs, Fran
You Little Furball is a retiring set *sniff*! I’ll miss these cute little faces! I still had one more stenciled background on my desk, so I put kitty on it. The colors are Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and So Saffron. Kitty is in Cajun Craze. Don’t miss out on this set! Hugs, Fran
I had a piece of stenciled paper on my desk and quickly turned it into this. The paper was stenciled with stencil paste, ink re fills and glitter. The sentiment is from Tin of Cards. And that’s the Sale a bration washi tape – sniff! Just pieces – Hugs, Fran
This card is Karen Burniston’s Jinks the Monkey hanging out as a cowboy. The card is large – 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 – and the background is stenciled with stencil paste over a patterned paper. (Retired SU)
I used several piece from the Props 6 dies for the hat and bandana to finish him off. Hugs, Fran
Pick a flower (card!) Both of these cards use Flower Shop and the same colors. One background is embossed with the Honeycomb embossing folder and the other
uses a stencil and Soft Sky ink to create the background. Which one do you like better?
Here’s another glittery card using stencils. The colors used on this on are Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Soft Sky. I repeated the colors on the stamp (Fabulous Four.) Behind the sentiment is silver filament, wrapped in a circle and adhered to the back. Hugs, Fran
Do you ever play with stencils? The background on this card is made with the Happy Patterns stencil on page 157 in the Annual Catalog, stencil paste, reinkers, and Dazzling Details. The colors I used are Pear Pizzaz, Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Blushing Bride. The stamp is Fabulous Four – which is fabulous! The glitter really takes this over the top. Hugs, Fran
Enjoy the Little Things is from the Occasions Mini (page 33) as a stamp to accompany a Project Kit. I used the set to make the cute tag from a Baker’s Box Thinlit box. Using Blushing Bride and the Dots and Stripes stencil, I used stencil paste to make the design. Just a small change from the catalog example – with a big punch. Hugs, Fran
