One layer cards with stencils


I am popping in to share a few simple cards that I have made with my stencils....just inking through them helps make a card quick and easy. 

In my first card I have gone over my heart stencil with a number of inks to create an ombre effect.

I simply inked the heart off the edge of the card and added a bold sentiment from Uniko.  I shall link up at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Ombre and at Addicted to Stamps where Anything Goes.
Next up I inked through my honeycomb stamp, fading out as I went and added one of the cute bees from Reverse Confetti.  I love this fun sentiment :)

I shall link up at CASology where the cue card is Late and at Seize the Birthday where the topping is one layer.
You can buy both of these stencils from my Folksy shop:
Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Love the bee card. The faded stenciled background is awesome and the coloring of the bee is fantastic! Thanks for joining us at CASology!

  2. Using stencils the way that you did is a great way to get texture and dimension to your card with only one layer. These are fantastic and I got a chuckle from the sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday. We would love to see you again. Best wishes.

  3. I love the way you faded out the ink on the stencils, Sarah, and that bee card is pinned and ready for CASEing. I recently got that set and sometimes belated cards are necessary.

  4. Smashing duo of cards but that sentiment on the bee card is just wonderful, its so funny and looks perfect on your card x

  5. Two lovely cards, Sarah! Beautiful ombre effect with your inks on both stencils and I love your CAS designs! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!
