Celebrate You


I decided to play in the new stencil challenge and used a metal stencil I got recently in a mystery box. It is made by Lasting Impressions and is called Tall Cake. Using the Halloween colours I stenciled each section and then let it dry. It was a bit bland so I added a few embellishments here and there to jazz it up a bit. The layer was added to a scrap of orange card stock and then added to the card front. Using some rose gold embossing powder and a new stamp set that was also in the mystery box I added the sentiment at the bottom and heat set it. Can’t find the label for the stamp set so I don’t know who it is by. Could be Doodlebug Designs but I’m not sure. Sometimes I find stenciled images are a bit blah and this card seems that way to me, but it fits the challenge so I’m going with it. I do have another one for the same challenge but it has different colours altogether. I think the next time I use this stencil I will use texture paste as I think it may give a much more vibrant look. Thanks for sharing some time with me.

    1. They are different than the ones you are used to. I have a few that I dig out once in a while but usually I use texture pastes with them. This is the first time I’ve only used inks.


    1. Thanks Lisa. I wish I could find the maker of the 2 stamp sets I got but I can’t locate it. I do like the stamps though.


  1. I haven’t had much luck with metal stencils but this turned out quite nice. You might try dry embossing if you have a light box, then color over it. Or as you said, use texture paste. I really like the sentiment.

  2. Texture paste will certainly give it a different look. I tend to use metal stencils to emboss the image, then stencil in the color, so it has a bit of depth. I do like your card and the fun colors. Your sentiment is quite pretty.
