Cards using MFT Stencils

Hi everybody!

I just wanted to share a couple cards that I made yesterday.  I made the Thank You card for my next door neighbor's Mother, who stayed here overnight and kept Barney when I went out of town to St. Louis.  I know, you think my having a 'baby sitter' for Barney is insane right?  He would be scared if he had to be here by himself all night because he never has.  :)

I just made a simple background using a My Favorite Stamps stencil called Scrolled BG.  I inked it up with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The Thanks die is a Lawn Fawn die called Scripty Thanks.  I use these scripty dies a lot.  I topped it off with a few sequins and used some Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen over the word, thanks to give it a subtle sparkle.

I made this card for someone whose Father recently passed away.  I know she doesn't like pink so I made the flowers blue.  I used a My Favorite Things stencil called Rose Builder.  I love this stencil!  It is so relaxing to use this stencil and mask and just take your time.  That's what I did, went around the card masking as I went with Post It Masking Tape.

I ended up stamping a sentiment inside.  It said, Sending Thoughts and Prayers Your Way.  I used ink colors, Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Bamboo Leaves by Memento.

I hope you liked my cards!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

By the way.... My BLOG IS FIXED!  The JOIN THIS SITE is FIXED.  It no longer goes to an error message.  So happy about this!

I love your stenciled backgrounds. I especially like the sympathy one. So gorgeous.
