Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and I've chosen stencils as the theme.
My team mates and our guest Carol have some wonderful inspiration for you, although if you aren't into stencilling, you can always play along with our anything goes birthday option too!
Look forward to seeing you in the gallery.
I have been collecting stencils for quite a while and need to use them more as they are perfect for quick and easy cards! Once you work out which one you are using lol!
This one is new to me from Simon Says Stamp and I used glitter paste and a diecut sentiment.
It's REALLY sparkly in real life!
(I think I'll invest in a light box as pics may show up better!)
I'm linking up to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp folk dance stencil; Bo Bunny silver glitter paste; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle and MFT happy birthday script dies.
Thanks for visiting,
The silver glitter through the stencil makes an awesome card with the black background! Wow!
Really lovely card Cathy - looks very sparkly - I can imagine it IRL Mxxx
Ooh shiny, what a fabulous looking card and your chosen stencil looks great. The black really showcases all the sparkl x
I wish I could make these type of cards but I can't handle glitter boo hoo!
Oh Cathy - this is stunning! Fabulous card.
Sorry for the sporadic visits - the house move isn't going exactly to plan! xx
I agree with you and I need to use stencils more. They are quick and easy and make a wonderful background. I love the silver one for a sparkly look on this birthday card.
Great stencil and that glitter paste looks stunning against the black. Beautiful card, Cathy.
This is definitely a very FESTIVE card with all the lovely sparkles.
The silver against the black looks amazing! And you're right - using a stencil this way does make for a quick card - minus the drying time, of course, lol. Beautiful card.
Such fabulous sparkle Cathy and a wonderful SS stencil perfect on the black card, and love the large die cut sentiment to finish. A gorgeous card! x
I love all the glitz and shine on this background and then the big happy birthday die is the perfect finishing touch and all that is needed! thank you for a fun challenge!
Sparkle on black is always so elegant :)
The sparkle is awesome on this card Cathy! Gorgeous stencil design. The silver glitter paste looks amazing on black. xx
Yes, narrowing down which stencil can be the hardest part! I love that you did silver on black! Such a classy look! Awesome birthday card, Cathy! Hope you are doing well!
What a stunner of card, full of glitter paste and so dramatic Cathy x.
Gorgeous birthday card, Cathy! I see pretty sparkle in the picture so I can imagine how much more sparkly the silver glitter stenciling is in real life!
Stunning! This is definitely a special card for a special someone.
Beautiful card Cathy. Love the sparkly stenciled background. It looks great on the black and all you needed was that large birthday die cut. Love it.
This is a classy birthday card! The sparkly silver looks gorgeous on black!!!
Very elegant card, Cathy! Just goes to show, flowers needn’t always be coloured to look stunning.
I can just imaging how glittery and sparkly this would be - and glitter especially looks amazing aginst a dark background too!! Fantastic use of the stencil, Cathy! And thanks for the challenge!
So striking and stunning with the silver on black. Such a classy card - love it!
