The rest of this weekend's stencil cards...

Except for one scheduled for tomorrow- I promise:) I decided to play with stencils and embossing folders on this one. I sponged blue ink on a kraft piece using a round version of a stencil I made with a cutting file from Get Silvered and my Silhouette in some earlier blog posts. Then I embossed the piece with a birthday embossing folder from Embossalicious. I sponged the whole piece with brown distress ink and attached to a black card.
I cut an abstract shape with my Silhouette using a Silhouette America cutting file and taped it down on a white piece. I masked the center and sponged the outside openings with pink distress ink and then stamped with a lined background stamp from A Muse. Then I masked those and sponged the center aqua blue distress ink and stamped with an old star stamp from Santa Rosa. The super cool vertical Thanks is from Crackerbox Palace. I rounded the edges and layered on pink and then on black.

The black piece I had used as a stencil was just too fun to toss, so I turned it over and layered on a white card. I added a silver border sticker from Tim Holtz and a "love" I die cut with a die from Dee's Distinctively.

I had fun making and sharing all these cards, and hope you enjoyed them too.

Stamping smiles, Karen
