A whole lot of excitement and inspiration about to unfold over at STAMPlorations, with the launch of a new line of exclusive amazing, trendy stencils designed by our very own, super talented, incredibly sweet Sanna Lippert, from Papierstau fame! To celebrate Sanna's new path of creativity, Shery has organized a STAMPlorations Stencil Blog Hop with Sanna Lippert Designs and I'm thrilled to be part of the reveal!
My first two cards feature Christmas Tree 1 - Sanna Lippert Designs and, because I wanted to do something 'other than' my 'usual' CAS stenciling on a white background, I went in search of ideas. I found this image which, with its rich teal, white and red, sparked ideas...
White pigment ink for the first layer, a slight shift of the stencil, and a second inking with teal ink to create a shadow. To this background, I added two Christmas Reindeer, the Jingle All the Way phrase die and a smattering of glittery Nuvo dots (hard to see in the photo, but they are quite shimmery....). A different look from me; hopefully, I've done justice to this oh-so-pretty stencil...
My second card sees a forest of gold-embossed trees paired with Peace On Earth cut from shimmer paper. Shiny and shimmery!
My next two cards focus on Flowers 2 - Sanna Lippert Designs, and I went sentiment free for both, to leave the stencil as the star of the stage as much as possible. Sentiments can always come later, right? White Picket Fence distress marker used to colour the stencil, with red glitter Nuvo Drops for the flower centers...
And...to wrap things up...my 'usual' way of stenciling, with my favourite colour combination - peacock feathers, cracked pistachio and twisted citron - and one of my favourite images - a butterfly, from Flutter Zen 1.
