Thank You & Stencil Hop Reminder

Hello Crafty Friends!

Just a quick reminder that over at STAMPlorations they are having a Stencil Blog Hop to celebrate the release of new stencils by their new designer Sanna Lippert.

I feel very lucky to have been working with two of her fabulous designs, Leaves 1 and Trees 1 to make an artsy CAS Thank You card. Here it is:

I re-visited a technique I used in my Spotlight Project here on the STAMPlorations Blog. Instead of using die-cuts I simply used two of the cut out trees which were included with the Trees 1 stencil, layered them on top of each other and secured them in place with low tack tape before dry embossing.

The embossed Leaves 1 on the white background can be more easily seen by zooming in. I really love the subtle embossed effect you get when using stencils for dry embossing

Here is a look at all the stencils Sanna designed for this release:

Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to join the fun and of course to check out all the other gorgeous inspiration my teamies created. Please leave comments along the way for your chance to win one of the following prizes:

  • one winner of a $20 gift certificate
  • two winners will win their choice of three stencils from the new Sanna Lippert Designs range

Commenting closes Monday, 4th December. Winners will be randomly drawn from all the comments left on the STAMPlorations Blog and the participating designers' blogs.

Here is one last look at my make ....

That's it from me for today. Have a lovely week!
