I had so much fun designing with the new holiday release of stencils from A Colorful Life Designs I made 8 different cards with them! One of my favorite techniques with stencils is to use Deco Foil Transfer Gel through the stencil and then after it is dry, run the piece through my MINC with beautiful foils such as the new Brutus Monroe Red and Gold Static foils. I used the new Striped Baubles stencil from ACLD on the two ornaments shown here and it was also used to emboss the background for some subtle texture.
Here is another card made with a favorite new ACLD stencil called Snowflake Net, Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Brutus Monroe Silver Sketch Deco Foil. I also sponged blue ink through the stencil and added a pretty snowflake from Poppy Stamps and Happy Holidays from Your Next Die.
