My card using 5 STAMPlorations Products:-)

CUTplorations Let it Snow Word Phrase Die

What fun to use 5 STAMPlorations products for my last 2021 Stencil Challenge!
I began by creating the stenciled main image:
Mixed Media paper using masking tape.  Then sponged through the stencil with 
Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina and Speckled Egg inks using makeup brushes.

Step 2: Left the Flexi-plate on and attached with tape the ARTplorations Holiday Trees Stencil and
added the Distress Rustic Wilderness Ink to trees with makeup brush. Used metallic gold
pen to stars and colored trunks with Zigs then removed tree stencil.

Step 3: Attached the ARTplorations Dots All Over Stencil with tape and used a sponge dauber to add 
Versafine clear ink, then removed image and heat embossed with SU Clear EB powder. 

Step 4: Die cut image with Memory Box Stitched Circle Die.
Die cut a larger circle and sponged with DI Rustic Wilderness and attached layers.

Step 5: Die cut CUTplorations Let it Snow Word Phrase Die ( I could not find product in store).
Then stamped with Versamark clear ink and Heat embossed with Rangers Distress Embossing
Glaze Speckled Egg and Cracked Pistachio..a total of 5 layers!! Gorgeous Shine!

Step 6:  Die cut SU colored cardstock cardbase with
 CUTplorations Circles All Over Texture Cover Plate.  Popped up main image with craft foam 
and attached sentiment with Connect Glue and Done:-)
I Loved the results of my NOT CAS card all inspired by the STAMPlorations Products!
Fun Creative way to end the 2021 Stencil challenges:-)

We hope you can join us this month and that we will see you back in 2022! 
Wishing you a Healthy and Happy Holiday Season with your family and friends.
Love and Thank you for supporting STAMPlorations!
