Stencils & Cards

Stencils come in many patterns and sizes and
 Echo Park Paper
has the cutest around! 
 I have two ideas on how to use stencils on cards,
along with the “The Story of Family” Collection.

 For the first card, I’ve taken a scrap piece of white textured cardstock,
 the “Branches Stencil”, washi tape and chalks. I started with a yellow
 chalk and chalked all of the branches.  Then I added a light green and
 dark green to the base of the branches.

 I die-cut two 2.5” circles from the chalked area and matted them with a larger, 
3” circle of diagonal striped paper. 


The embellishments were kept simple with just a few stickers and decorative
 brads added around the edge of the circles.
 
The second card is made up of the “Leafy Border Stencil” and dark green chalk ink. 
 For the base, I cut a rectangle from off-white cardstock that’s just a bit larger
 than the 3X4 journal card.


 I taped the stencil down over the cardstock with washi tape.
 The portion of the leaf border was inked and then the stencil was adjusted so that
 the pattern could continue around the top and bottom edges.

 The journal card was attached to the center of the leaf frame with foam adhesive.


One of the scroll sentiment stickers was cut in half and added to the top
 and bottom of the frame.
With stencils you can customize your own unique look to cards or other craft projects! 
 Try other types of mediums such as modeling or stencil paste, crayons, etc. and have fun!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
