Still Stencilling….

Well, it was just sitting there, winking at me…

Another card made with my Altenew Halftone stencil. This time I have opted for a softer look, so just used two shades of grey ink (Evening Gray and Morning Frost) in a fuzzy edged (technical term!) vague circle. I then stamped my flowers and leaves in a darker grey (Moon Rock), fussy cut them and spent a small eternity faffing about with their placement. Ho hum. Some of the elements were popped up on 3D foam. Oh and UK shoppers, I found a great bargain pack of large foam squares and a big roll of foam in Poundland last week. Please forgive my ignorance but I honestly did not know that everything in that shop costs £1.00!! I kept looking for prices….But anyway, it seems like a good deal to me so thought I would mention it.

Once I had the card assembled I decided I wanted to add the tiny text greeting. I wasn’t brave enough to stamp directly onto the more-or-less finished project so chickened out. Stupid, really, because if it had gone wrong I could still have covered it over and ended up with the same card as I have here. Duh!

A few little blobs of Nuvo Jewel drops and we are good to go. I like the sentiment because it can cover a lot of occasions, either happy or not so much.

    1. Thank you! I am useless at knowing the price of stuff, unless it is craft items. I do admire people who can keep better track and shop wisely!

    1. thank you. And yes, probably the same kind of shop. They sell all sorts of stuff, I just never got the concept that it all cost a pound!!

  1. What a beautiful card! The lilac and gray together are perfect. At first I thought the flowers might be dogwood, but maybe they are apple blossoms. Gorgeous, either way. Foam dots are one of my top favorite supplies!

  2. It looks lovely, grey and lilac are very subtle and keep it suitable for all occasions too. Great stencilling! I love Poundland, just to add confusion they sometimes have ‘specials’ that aren’t £1, like big bottles of Bold. It sometimes has hidden gems (literally, my adhesive pearls all come from there!)

  3. I like poundstrecher where some items are less than £1 they also tend to have a huge amount of craft items like pearlescent 3d paint and paper pads. Love the simplistic beauty of your card. I seem to be in the habit of over cluttering my cards.


      1. I had exactly the same problems when I first started years ago. I was trying to use embossing powder with dye ink, but had no idea they would not work together! Also, I had fingerprints all over the card I was trying to use embossing powder on. If in doubt, Google the specific problem. The answer is out there!

      2. I think it maybe the stamps I am using?? I am using a stamp one with small writing. I am not sure it the quality of the stamp makes a difference or if it is the size of the stamped image…trying to get the embossing power to look good has not worked. I used both ink and a white embossing liquid….Did Google and Youtube and everyone seems to stamp so easily, without effort it seems 🙂


  4. Very fresh and stylish card!
    I like Altenew stamps… Now I need to move from looking at them to actually creating) They have anniversary celebrations now – good time to get something))
