A stag for all seasons


I am back with some more cards that I have made with my new stag stencil....I can't stop playing with it :) I love the look that I can get by blending inks through it.

I inked through the stag stencil in autumnal shades and used a leaf stencil from Clarity Stamp over the top.  I stamped a few leaves in a darker shade to provide some definition and added a sentiment from Mama Elephant.  The panel is matted on a piece of wood effect card.  I shall link this card up at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Leaves.  I will also link up at AAA Cards where the challenge is to use ink blending.

I really liked the card I made last week with the stag in blues so I combined it here with a snowy scene stamp from Hero Arts.  I added some glitter to the scene to enhance the wintry design.  I shall link up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is All Creatures Great and Small and at Addicted to Stamps where Anything Goes.  I will also play along at Happy Little Stampers November CAS Challenge where the theme is Christmas and at their Christmas Challenge where Anything Goes.
You can buy this stencil in my Folksy shop!
Thank you for stopping by,

  1. Gorgeous cards, Sarah! I can see why you can't put this stag stencil down...I would feel the same way :) It looks so pretty with your stenciled leaves and very clever with your snowy scene, as well! So happy you could join in the fun this week at ATCAS!

  6. You work wonders with this stag stencil and have really inspired me to use the one I own. I'm waiting for a stamp order from CAS-ual Fridays at the moment, I'm going to receive some new snowflake stamps... And when I do, I'm going to take out my stag stencil and start creating inspired by you! Thanks so much! And thanks for joining us at HLS November Christmas challenge!
