Stenciled Birthday

When I ordered some new embossing folders last month, I also got one set of sentiment dies and one stencil. For today's cards, I used different parts of the stencil. The stencil is by The Crafter's Workshop and has eight small patterns on it. For each card, I used a different design and a stamp from a Stampendous birthday set.

I used purple distress ink applied with a sponge on this first card. I added three flowers that I got in a pack from Hobby Lobby last summer. You can't tell by the picture, but they are glittery.
For this second card, I used Stampin' Up! ink and a stipple brush. I added three black "nail heads." The panel is mounted on foam squares.
This one again uses distress ink applied with a sponge, and is also mounted on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

These are lovely inspirations for ways to use things I already have. Reading your blog usually results in a trip to JoAnn's to buy a new embossing folder. :>) Thanks, Ruth Ann

I love how simple yet stylish these cards are! I get too carried away when I am trying to come up with card designs and make things more complicated than they need to be. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of new sentiment dies you got. I've become a die-a-holic when it comes to word(sentiment) dies. I love them!!!

That is so fun that you found a stencil with several designs on it. I love the backgrounds they created for each of the cards you posted!

So... you went shopping! Isn't that fun? You're good at making wise and useful choices, such as a stencil with eight patterns, and I know you'll use the embossing folders a lot. These cards are all so pretty in your classic CAS style. Great sentiments, and I can see the sparkle on the flowers when I click up close. I'm in a shopping holding pattern currently. So many things I haven't used yet, tsk tsk.

You inspire me, Lynette to do more...I mean to do less because I am realizing that simple is SENSATIONAL! Thanks for the great ideas with folders and stencils!
