Let's get right to STENCILS!

Grid Stencil (Altenew, Simon Says Stamp)

Cube Builder Stencil (Altenew, Simon Says Stamp)

Since this is the LAST of this series, I thought it would be most appropriate to share a card that I created with stenciled scraps.
just for you

Yes, I used a watercolor piece with Cube Builder and a spray-stenciled piece with Grid Stencil.
When I got these scraps, I didn't know what to do with them. So, I challenge myself and this is what I came up with.


In order to make the design look SEAMLESS, I thought it is a good idea to stitch the two pieces up.
And that is exactly what I did.

To make the card more interesting, I stamped the floral image with Best Bud.

I also added a piece of gold glitter Washi Tape from Altenew New Day Card Kit (shop Altenew, Simon Says Stamp, a piece of pattern card stock and sequins.

The take-away lesson from this post?
Challenge yourself to create something out of the norm and get creative with your scraps.
You will be amazed with what you can come up with.

I wouldn't have thought to combine those stencils - you made them shine together, Virginia! Great colors and I love the outline flower stamped over top. The stitching adds the perfect finishing touch!!

You know what? This is my most favorite of all the series! I've always loved leftovers (ha!) and this card is so great with them. Love the contrast in style, colors, textures. I'll take scrap art anytime! Sweet!
