ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop - Day 5

Saturday, December 12, 2015


It's day five of the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop.  This is our final day for the hop.  To check out what the rest of the Design Team has for inspiration click on the graphic below.



Stencils are such a versatile way to add so much interest to a card or project.  Here's just one more way to use a stencil.  Embossing!  You can use any type of stencil for this and it's easy to do on paper or as I've done today on a sheet of craft metal.  Here's the order for the "sandwich" in a Big Shot machine...Tab 1, one of the plates, paper or metal, a stencil, a thick embossing pad, the other plate. You can try different thicknesses of paper to see what gives you the best impression.

Once I embossed the metal with the ARTplorations Holly Background stencil, I then randomly added some silver Inka Gold.  Next I added some Stickles to the berries. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations Joyful, one of my favorite stamp sets for Christmas sentiments :)  It's all been placed on some silver glitter corrugated paper for lots more sparkle.

Prizes:
  • FIVE (5) winners will receive their choice of ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7). Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs.
  • ONE (1) winner will receive a $15 gift certificate OR her choice of 2 ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7). Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog.
Extra prizes for those who participate in the Flash Stencil Project Linky Party and link up by December 13: 
  • TWO (2) winners whose projects feature stencils (any brand) will each receive their choice of one (1) ARTplorations stencil (standard size - 5x7)
  • ONE (1) winner whose project features an ARTplorations stencil will receive her choice of three (3) ARTplorations stencils (standard size - 5x7) OR a $15 gift certificate to the shop.
Back soon with more my sweet friends...
