Just a Note

Today I have a card that I made after being supremely INSPIRED by the Stamplorations ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop!  I was blown away by all the gorgeous cards the designers made using humble stencils.  Now I've collected quite a few stencils over my crafting years, but to be honest I've not used them very much at all.  Seeing all the wonderful things you can do with a stencil over at Stamplorations inspired me to pull mine out and come up with a card.

I used 3 different stencils for my card, the large dot (used Tumbled Glass DI), the chevron (used Cracked Pistachio DI), and the tiny dots (used Wplus9 Cockleshell ink).  I blended the inks more heavily at the bottom and then lighter at the top to create a sort of Bokeh affect.  The stamped images are from Stamplorations.  The main panel is cut with a die from Winnie & Walter.

This was a very simple card to create, now I need to get brave and try some of the more challenging stencil techniques the DT shared.  I created a Pinterest board with lots of the stencil ideas shared by the DT, if you'd like you can check it out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific weekend!
