Just Us Girls #711 -- Anything Goes STENCIL Week


Lovely Ina is hosting our first ANYTHING GOES USING A STENCIL week at Just Us Girls.  This week, just use a stencil somewhere in the creation of your card.  At this moment in crafting time, I am addicted to layering stencils. They are literally the quickest and easiest way I have found to create a beautiful custom card.  

The stencil I used today is relatively new from Simon Says Stamp...and has 4 layers. I jazzed it up a bit by using the 4th layer twice (flower centers) by applying a layer of Lawn Fawn's Fairy Dust (sparkly paste) on the second pass.  As final touches I used an embossing die to decorate the edges, and added a vellum backed, layered sentiment.  This sentiment does not come with an outline die so I just fussy cut the vellum.

Continuing with my New Year's resolution, I made two additional backgrounds (no sentiment) for future use.

Check out our fabulous guest designer for January, Stef Perry. Please welcome her and check out her fabulous work over at Perry Papercrafts

Enjoy!  I am looking forward to your inspired creations in the gallery.

I love the whimsical nature of your stenciled flower garden, Elizabeth, and I'm sure the fairy dust only adds to that.

Fabulous stencilling Elizabeth and oh so colourful. Nice touch of bling and bold sentiment.

This is so bright and cheerful! I love your beautiful stenciling and colors paired with the vellum backed sentiment. I still can't believe that I have resisted purchasing any layering stencils so far.

I so love your card, Elizabeth. The detail og the edges, vellum and sparkle really make it extra special. I love it. And I love your "make 3" resolution. Great idea!

I have resisted this stencil but you've really shown how to make it beautiful with your card, Elizabeth! Love the added sparkle and the die cut rectangle edge - both delightful details!
