Seriously, Loll... please don't consider my card as a challenge entry - only a play-along for fun... because I know in my head that it isn't CAS enough BUT, I recently won a prize from Poppy Stamps that you stenciling pros might like to see!! Have you seen their die/stencil combos? Take a peeky poo at this...
I grabbed a neutral patterned paper from MFT Gray & White - retired - a few distress oxides, and a blending brush and took this set for a test drive! Even though I smudged over the lines a teensy bit, that stenciling over the die cut was pretty user friendly. Here's what I created with my first try...
Keeping that die cut hello white, and the sentiment small, may have saved my bacon in the CAS department - I truly wanted the leaves to be the star of the show.
Thanks again for making me stretch, Loll! xx Hope you all have a fun weekend planned!
hello die is Mama Elephant - very old
sentiment from Altenew's Leaf Canopy
Distress Oxides: wild honey, peeled paint, aged mahogany, and fossilized amber.
Thank you, ladies!!
Wowza....this is amazing! What a fabulous set of dies and stencils...just when you think you've seen it all! Beautiful way to stencil on DSP!!
Oh how cool is this set! I've never seen this before, what a great idea they had. And you used it beautifully! I think this is still CAS. You have nice clean lines and pretty colors to boot!
This set looks fantastic! Love the leaves with the striped patterned paper, thankyou for playing along at CAS Stencil, Cathy x
Michelle this is stunning!! I love the colours and the stenciling... What a beautiful card!
Great optical illusion with that die...took me a minute. Fab paper for this technique. Love the card.
Oh wow, Michele, this is wonderful. I adore the inking on the leaves with the pattern peeking through. You pulled this off beautifully. The hello die is in a beautiful fon and works so wonderfully. Thank you SO much for playing and for sharing! :)
I think it's beautiful and one can never go wrong with gray stripes!!!
This is gorgeous!! I need to try this challenge myself but very scary to me!!
Great combination of stencilling and paper Michele. I am no expert on CAS cards but I am loving this one....great colours and design x.
Love all these pretty leaves, Michele! What a fantastic die/stencil pairing. That's messing with my head. I think I need to try it to make sense from it. Are you sending me on another shopping spree, my friend?
Consider your bacon saved, in my opinion, such as it is. Love the way this die and stencil work together...lovely fall card.
This is terrific, Michele, and a second look at stenciling over pp -- such a fun "option"!
What a clever idea, and Michele you have taken these die/stencil combos to another level, your card is amazing!!
Stencil and a diecut! Who thinks up this stuff!?! Someone very creative......and you handled the pair of them beautifully! I love the effect!
Wow...Gorgeous die cut and stenciled set and card, Michele. What a great idea:-) I think your card is CAS enough, but I am sometimes on the edge of CAS too. So pleased you joined us at CAS Stencil, my friend. Hugs..Nancy
The stenciled leaves are definitely the star of the show Michele. Your card is stunning as always! I've seen those die cuts with the stencils, so cool. I love what they add to an already beautiful card.
Uh-huh. I love this, girly-girl. Striped paper. This just works perfectly. And I don't know....There's a ton of white space here, along with that white 'hello.' So very pretty. I do like this card, Michele. It's really a brilliant use of a stencil on patterned paper. Uh-huh. xoxo Bev
WOW...this is STUNNING Michele!! Those striped leaves are FABULOUS...LOVE everything about this card!! :0)
Take a 'peeky poo'? You are too funny, Michele! This is such a gorgeous card! Your leaves are so pretty and I love the scripty font on your sentiment...thanks for reminding me of that, as I think I have it in my stash :) Also, thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS Stencil!
The striped leaves look wonderful, Michele. I love the concept of stencils matching dies. It sure worked for you.
Simply Stunning Michelle, that is one really nice die and stencil set and your sponged stencil leaves on the soft stripy DP are so pretty and autumny - great card and thanks for sharing with CAS Stencil, Robyn
Oh my gosh, Michele ... this is AWESOME! LOVE the stenciling over top of your stripy paper. Great layout and design with your frame of leaves. And the white hello is just perfect to keep this CAS. Great work, Michele! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil! xx
