Stencil Sunday

Good afternoon all.

This is my second post today...if you'd like to see my CAS card for the Christmas Card Club you'll find it here.

I've been battling an oncoming migraine all day so far but I have managed some crafty time this afternoon, the results of which you won't see until next month as I'm trying to get ahead with some DT work.

My turn to provide some Stencil Sunday inspiration over at STAMPlorations today. I've created some gift bags which will hopefully inspire you all to get your stencils out.

I got the Gelli Plate out and had a play! Shery has some larger stencils due out soon and I used Leaf Bliss to create my mood board, which I then made into a gift bag.

To finish them off I used a stamp from the Holiday Expressions: Thankful for Autumn set to make a label and tied the bag with bakers twine.

And don't forget the October Mixed Media Challenge runs until the end of the month! If you've been meaning to play, you still have plenty of time left to get messy and share your non-card mixed media projects. It's anything mixed media goes except a card...and you must use a stencil (any brand or even a homemade one!) in your project(s). For the complete challenge info + prizes, click here.

Challenges entered:
My Time to Craft - autumnal colours
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - anything goes, twist autumn colours
Wags n Whiskers - fall colours

  10. GOR-Geous colors with your gelli plate and what a pretty fall design on your bag. Hope the migraine is easing off by now, and if this is your designing when you're not quite up to par, gosh, I'll be wow'd by the result when you're feeling tip-top! I really like this! TFS

  12. Gorgeous print Carol and so happy to hear Shery will have some larger stencils too. Have three or four of theirs now and hope to get more after Xmas - they fabulous quality for the price. I was surprised at how quick my delivery was and well impressed by them. I have to say that the blue is my favourite too and using the AquaTints is so much easier than using Distress inks - always good when my fingers hurt lol! Karen xx
