Celebrate!

Hello lovelies! Happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m sharing another stenciled card, using my new stencils at STAMPlorations. This stencil, actually, is not a new one, but it went thru a modification process, thus, „new“.

We changed the design into a slightly bigger one, because cutting it was a difficult process. A bigger design makes the cutting easier, so we changed it abit. A second designs that got changed, was Onions in Raws. Totally out of same reasons. So if you bought these two stencils by their reveal, the new ones are slightly different (bigger). The smaller designs will not be available anymore in the store.

For the background I used residue pieces where I pressed a misted stencil onto a white paper and got this colorful image. Then I added the RagRug pattern with black Distress Ink on top. For decor a stamped and fussy cut sentiment and a few older embellishments.

A perfect color combination for fall birthday wishes!
Happy crafting,

November Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy November!!! New month means a new Stencil Challenge and here is my take for the November Stencil Challenge reveal at STAMPlorations.

This card is made using a white card base on which I mounted a misted, stenciled old book paper. For misting I used various Dylusions sprays with one of my new stencil designs, called Abstract Prehistoric Life.

After mounting the dried book paper onto the card base, I just added very little decoration. The Panda bear figure and a hooray sticker from my older stash. I love the look, it´s like the panda bear is in the middle of colorful leaves.

Now is your turn to play with stencils and submit your projects here. Please don´t forget to follow the rules if you want to be in for the win ;-). All rules and even more inspiration can be found at the STAMPlorations blog.

October Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyne! It´s again time to remind you about this months Stencil Challenge at STAMPlorations!! There is still plenty of time to play along – hope you join the fun with us!!!

This is my reminder post project:

For this card I used Monika Skinners new Flexi Templates (Ovals here) with the new Slimline stencils designed by Shery. I first placed the ovals into the middle and inked around the edges with pink ink, then I placed the slimline stencil over everything else and added darker pink ink tone onto the pink areas thru the stencil.

After that I removed the oval template in the middle and placed the „edge“ piece of the oval template over the pink areas. This way I could ad orange to the middle without messing the colours. For finishing touches I misted the Slimline stencil with water and pressed it onto the orange inked oval and let water do it´s magic. You can see the pattern here and there on the background.

For finishing touches I added some stamping with the STAMPlorations Noteworthy stamp set and then went on adding some Nuvo Drops and paper flowers and buttons from my older stash.

Now again be sure to check out the fabulous project the other DT girls designed for your inspiration and then join the fun :). Hope you see you at STAMPlorations blog!

Happy stenciling,

October Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome back to the STAMPlorations Stencil challenge!! It´s good to be back after the summer break inspiring you all with the challenges! We are hoping to see lots and lots of entries this month :). So get your crafty on and join the fun with us!

Here is my artwork for the reveal:

I played in my Ranger (black) Art Journal and created this page. I´ve got plenty of spray ink layers going on on the backgrond. Done with some of my new stencils (Amaranth, Abstract Prehistoric Life and Abstract April Showers).

The panda bears are talking to each other on this page. They say: „Help! I am falling!“ and the second one answers: „Don´t worry! I´ll catch you!“. As life has been tough during the summer and spring, I felt like creating a page like this at this point of the 2020 pandemic.

Now it´s again your turn. Do check out the STAMPlorations blog for more details (+ play by the rules!) and inspiration!! Hoping to see many of you join in!!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
