STAMPlorations Slimline Stencil Inspiration Hop

STAMPlorations Slimline Stencil Inspiration Hop by STAMPgirls: Deepti, MariLynn,
Nancy (me) and Vicki using some of the new Slimline Stencils.

Our goal is to inspire you with creative ways to use these new awesome 
Slimline Stencils.  I know I am hooked on this new size and already have 8 Slimline Stencils:-)
There are 36+ Slimline Stencils available in the STAMPlorations Store.

My 1st card using the new "Burst" Slimline Stencil.

I cut an 8" x 9" 100# SU Whisper White cardstock and scored down the middle 
to fold into a 4" x 9" cardbase.  Next cut a card front 3 7/8" x 8 1/4" out of the same paper.
Blended light green and blue shades of Distress Oxide inks with make up brushes
onto card front.

Next sprayed back of "Burst" Slimline Stencil with Pixie Spray and
placed over Distress Oxide card front. 
You can uses masking tape if you do not have the spray.

Then the fun began...adding Distress Oxides..yellows, blues, greens and lavender shades 
thru the stencil with make up brushes.
Removed the stencil and went....Wow!!!! The Burst image really Glowed!

Added CRAFTplorations Clear Stickers "Shine Bright" and "New Day".
Sponged edge of Burst Stenciled image, attached to card base and Done!
I Loved the Results and hope you do too!


My 2nd card using the "Wavy Dots" Slimline Stencil. 

I was so pleased that I Loved my 2nd Slimline Stenciled card as well as my 1st:-)

I made a 2nd 4" x 9" Whisper White 100# card base then cut a 4" x 9" card front
from Strathmore  Toned Tan 184# Mixed Media paper.

Sprayed "Wavy Dots" Slimline Stencil with Pixie Spray.
Placed over Tan MM paper, then began blending Distress Oxide Inks using make up
brush.  I used turquoise, green, dark blue and purple shades of ink.

Removed the stencil and Loved the results!
Loved how the stencil left a nice framed edge.

Next stamped "happy" from Clear Stamp "Happy Birthday" using Misti.  Then 
sponged the same colors I used for card front onto a scrap of 100# white cardstock.
Then die cut Birthday from "Birthday Word Die".  I stacked 2 layers from
SU Basic Black Cardstock  and one layer from sponged scrap.
Attached to card front with Connect Glue and Done!
