Stencil Embossing

Put a Hero Arts Bold Floral stencil through my Big Shot with an embossing mat and dry embossed. Came out great, so -- of course -- now I want more $tencil$. 

Blended Distress Oxide inks onto the card (Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral). Using softer colors and a different sentiment and this could make a nice sympathy card.

Stamped a sweet sentiment from Reverse Confetti Posted Notes (which does not appear to be available any more), and added a few black Nuvo drops. Trimmed and popped up on a white card.

MOOD WHEN DONE: Been spending a lot of time crafting, which is always a good thing. My husband is running around organizing and decluttering our house but he's banned from my craft room so, so far, we remain married!


  1. This is so beautiful -- the pattern, the glowing color, the black sentiment popping. Wow! Yes, need more $stencil$. Isn't that the way it goes?

  2. This card says 'happy' with the beautiful colors! I have never thought to try embossing with stencils, but definitely going to give it a go! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Beautiful colour and texture...and the black sentiment looks super on it. I'm glad to hear the technique worked for you! I never had any problems with it, but when I featured it once as a TLC challenge, I had people saying it smashed their stencils, and even worse I think someone said it broke their Cuttlebug. Yikes!! And it's such a great look, too.

  4. Never enough stencils!!! I used to think they were just for "those mixed media people"... then I found Jennifer McGuire and ever since it would seem I have been on a mission to collect ALL the STENCILS, or at least all the pretty and/or geometric ones. And yet there are still times when I think, "I wish I had a stencil like..." and I go online to see if it exists yet. Thankfully I have a Silhouette and can also make my own from cut files. Your card is beautiful and it sounds like your hubby is going to need a hobby :-)
