ABNH and stuff


I am over at A Blog Named Hero today with a card inspired by my favourite post from this year.  It will be no surprise that it involves stencils....

Head over to ABNH to see who inspired me....

I will also enter this card in to the SSS Flickr Challenge #7 (my third) which is about stencils.

While I am playing with stencils and embossing paste here is a Christmas card made with a lovely stencil from Clarity Stamp:

I used white embossing paste on kraft, coloured the little heart in red pen and added some glossy accents.  A bit of white ink around the edges to soften the kraft.  I like the rustic/Nordic look of this design - do you?
I will link up at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge to make Christmas/holiday cards.
I promise to put away my stencils for my next cards!  Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. These are both fabulous, Sarah ... the stencilling's gorgeously texture-y! The white on kraft with the tiny heart is stunning ... and that ombré balloon's so fun! Anita :)
