we have another blog hop at STAMPlorations - this one is all about the new stencils, designed by Sanna Lippert. I just love them all. But you know that stencils are just my thing....
I am showcasing two of them:
The first one are those little trees - so perfect for Christmas. But if you put them sideways, they look like arrows, so lots of options to play around with them. Since I never have too many Christmas cards I used them as trees....
I used embossing paste, mixed with a bit of red ink and gold. The parcel (from the set Joyful) I stamped and heat embossed onto metallic paper and colored it with Copics and added Stickles for extra Sparkle. The sentiment is from Christmas Reindeer.
I stenciled twice - fist in black and them I moved the stencil a smidgen and used gold embossing paste. It almost give you a 3D effect - looks like the gold is floating. I die cut the Holiday word die in gold and black. Glued them together with a little offset. Some Washi tape on the side and the gold embossed Poinsettia, colored with water color markers.
And here is the fineprint:
