Stencil, Sparkle and Shine

Hi everyone!  Today I am over on the Picket Fence Studios Blog plus I am hosting the Free 4 All Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  For the Free 4 All Challenge, we are using black on our cards plus sparkle/and or shine.

I thought it would be fun to show the versatility of the Picket Fence Studios Floral Stencils. So, first up, I turned the Floral Slimline Stencil into a Christmas card by simply adding the Merry Christmas sentiment from Baby It's Cold Outside.  I used a reverse stencil method by blending blue distress ink over the cardstock with Life Changing Blender Brushes (also sold as a bundle) then I placed the stencil onto the cardstock and blended black ink through the stencil.  I added sparkle with Glitter Paper and then tossed Gin and Tonic Sequins Mix from about 6 inches in the air and glued the sequins onto the card where they fell!  (I learned that trick from Lydia!)

Next up, I used the 6x6 Floral Stencil to make an A2 Christmas Card.  This time I stenciled the new Artemisia Silver Paper Glaze through the stencil.  I added a sentiment from Inside Christmas Quotes and then finished off the card with Gin and Tonic Sequins plus Black Russian Sequins Mix.  

I love the versatility of the Floral Stencils as they can be used for any occasion including Christmas! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I would love to see your creation on the Free 4 All Challenge!
