Stencils for the CCC!

 Hello to You All, I hope you are enjoying the weekend and your weather is good, another  day of sunshine here, although icy this morning with 0 degrees.

Another two weeks have passed since the CCC showed their last makes, and it's just whizzed by, so time once again and Rachel has chosen the theme of  Stencils.  Here's what I've come up with;


Imagination Crafts stencil coloured with different shades of Izink ink, star gems and clear gems, the snowflake border is one I bought in the Works. Matted on to different shades glitter card....there is a name for this but it escapes me at the moment.


Another Imagination crafts stencil and different colours of Sparkle Medium . The merry Christmas has Izink texture paste in gold, a few coloured gems to finish and black glitter card.


This is a Tonic Studio stencil with Sparkle Medium in Diamond, on to dark blue card. I made a border with white glitter card and matted it on to silver mirror card. The little snowman is a Carnation Crafts die water coloured, with some Stickles for sparkle. The snowflake die is by Amy Designs. I have to own to being really pleased with how this card turned out.

Well Rachel, I just loved this challenge, so thank you so much, it gave me the opportunity to use stash that has never been used.

Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my previous card, you are always so kind.

That's me for now, I'm scheduling this post for tomorrow for when the CCC goes live. Remember to check out what my team mates make, their cards are alway fabulous.

Keep well and safe, see you soon,

Lovely stencils that you have used for your cards. I like the effects. I am not into stencils so I just opted to go with the wild card and made the snowmen cards I should have done in the last challenge. Dull and overcast here today but dry and not cold. I am going to plant my tulip bulbs out in my pots today as Monty Don says November is the best month to put them in. Hugs ?Mrs A.
