Festive stamps and stencils

Hello there! Well its time for a new challenge at stamps and stencils and this time its Festive and Sue wants you to use BOTH stamps and stencils.....

I made two cards for this challenge - I used the stamp from the new Craft Stamper magazine and  a Tim Holtz snowflake stencil. I stamped the flake in versamark and set with white glitter embossing powder. Next I added distress ink to create the background. I also used distress ink through the stencil. 

I chose two of  Alison Bombers winter stamps ...stamped and cut and mounted them then added lace around the edges. Finally I added a flake charm!

I do hope you can join us. Check out what my uber talented teamies did here!

  1. That stamp and the Tim Holtz stencil could have been made to work together they go so well. They make gorgeous cards.
