Stencils and Masks...


Happy Saturday my friends! 

Have you gotten all caught up in the festivities and preparations for
this wonderful season. It is hard to believe it is only a little
over two weeks away.

I have been featuring a lot of Christmas cards lately so I decided to 
make something different this week.
How about some stencils and/or masks as your tool
for this weeks creation.

How would you like to play along with us this week at Sugar Creek Hollow ?

For my birthday card I used a new template that I purchased a while ago by
The Crafter's Workshop called Birds of a Feather. I used 
Stampin' Up blue bayou to sponge the images after which
I sprayed the paper with Tattered Angels shimmer spray.

As soon as I saw this beautiful template and it's branches, birds and cages I 
remembered my Prima stamp set "Butterfly Garden" 
and this gorgeous cage stamp.
Using a stamp around the page set to create my top layer and the corner punch to make
my sentiment tag was super fun and easy.
For more inspiration be sure to stop by the SCH blog and 
see what the ladies have to show you this week.

Now I know you have some type of template in your stash or make one 
using dies to create your own design. We can't wait to see your
wonderful entries.

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for taking the 
time to visit with me. I appreciate you one and all.
