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
I’ve been cleaning my stamp supplies and came across this stencil that I think was a freebie in a magazine. I sponged it with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise. Then I stamped the girl over the stenciled paper in Versafine and embossed it with clear embossing powder. To make the girl stand out a bit I painted over her with Clear Wink of Stella.
The hint of sparkle gives her just enough …..something…..to stand out. Sparkle? I used my Signo gel pen to add some accents around her. I am hooked on this color combo for the moment! 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
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
I was playing with my stencils from the Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks and the Salebration set Hello and came up with these cards. They are simply stenciled darker at top and lighter to the bottom to create a faded look. Hello is stamped with Soft Suede.
I had finished the stripes when it occurred to me to try the Dots. Did you get this set during SAB? It’s no longer available – but there are some new stamp sets and products to take it’s place. You can see what’s new –US SAB_2016_2nd Release_print-friendly
