I hope with quality posts, you will still get a dose of stamping fun during the summer.

 Let's get right to STENCILS!


My first card features the Grid Stencil.
I started with spraying inks over the stencil.
you are amazing by Virginia Lu

It did a little blotchy, but I think that makes the card more original and artsy!

you are amazing

Once the paper is dry, I stamped and die cut the Build-A Flower Magnolia (shop Altenew, shop Simon Says Stamp).

you are amazing (Stencil) (2)

Since the background is so bright and colorful, it seems like a good idea to stamp the magnolia to tone down the colors and also it provides a better color contrast!

And there you have it- a stenciled card created with dies and stamps.

Gorgeous Virginia. That is one lovely stencil. It really looks spectacular in the orange colours.

A very pretty background to show off the magnolia. Just lovely!

I have just received my FIRST stencil, I KNOW! :( However, it is an Altenew one and I am dying to use it. Hopefully today...

Using stencils makes all the difference! Gorgeous card!

You're right, the "blotchy" spray looks very artistic...just like it was meant to be. And in my favorite colors, to boot. The black & white floral image is the perfect focal point.

Just love all the oranges in your stencil background, Virginia! Great idea to leave the stamped flowers neutral - looks amazing!!

I will miss my daily visit; however, you can be sure Wed. and Sun. will be red letter days for me. This card is lovely, unique and colorful. I like it very much. Enjoy your summer.
