Stencils for Seize the Birthday


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Vicki has chosen stencils as the theme.

You can always play along with our anything goes birthday theme too.

My team mates and our guest Lorraine have some great inspiration for you, so I hope you can play along. All of the details are on the blog.

I seem to be stuck on a shimmer and shine phase! Will try and move on soon I promise :)

I used a new to me product (been around for quite a while I believe though) through my stencil.
Nuvo crackle mousse in russian white. Love the colour and love the crackle!

The sentiment die was inked with versamark and embossed with rose gold ep, while the butterfly was embossed with Lindys chateau rose ep.

Here's a closer look.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

I've used both diecuts and a stencil.

Allsorts, celebrating their 13th birthday with an anything goes birthday challenge! Congratulations!

Alphabet Challenge, D for diecuts

Dies: Memory Box birthday cursive script circle; Poppystamps stitched butterfly trio; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle.
Other: Gina K art deco stencil; Nuvo mousse in russian white; watercolour paper; Wow rose gold and Lindy's chateau rose embossing powders; versamark ink.

Thanks for visiting,

I have a fondness for using paste on a stencil as it gives a great result. But this is just amazing and looks like cracked ice and is so unusual. I adore this card.
