Stencils!


Virginia's second challenge is underway and this time its to use stencils,  I have a couple of new stencils but have found it quite a challenge to use them, I can't really get the look right.  Never mind, I have made this one card for the challenge, I am not sure I am truly happy with it but its a start!!  I will also add it to the Simon Says Birthday Challenge.





I am happy with this card, my friend is going to a wedding this week and asked me to make a card for her, I decided to have another play with my Silhouette machine and came up with this simple white design.

Have a great week.

Your stenciled elements work so beautifully with the Washi tape, Sally! It's bright, cheery and has that folksy feel to it! Awesome! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia's view Challenge!

Pretty cards, Sally! The stenciled card has a happy feel to it and that wedding card is very beautiful.

I have a lot of stencils and have done some of the things I've seen being done with them. But, I'm not in love with stencils per se. I'm having a difficult time deciding what to do for the challenge.

I have to admit I'm a little intimidated by stencils:(. I love the vibrant colors you used and your composition Sally! And your wedding card is stunning!!! Nice work with your Silhouette!
