I am having so much fun playing with the new Mostly Vintage Decor Stencils and the Smooch Spritz sprays from the Summer Mini catalogue. Every colour combination looks good: Log Cabin on Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla cardstocks, Vanilla Shimmer on Night of Navy and Bashful Blue cardstocks, Silver Foil on Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink, Gold Glow on Whisper White and Regal Rose.
I just can’t stop spritzing!
The stencil set has both a positive and negative image included and is perfectly sized to fit on a card. The design is so pretty. In addition to the Smooch Spritz, you can use the decor stencils with ink applying with a sponge dauber. Think of the options – VersaMark and Chalks, Craft ink and embossing powder, Classic ink in various colours and more.
To make this card, I spritzed over the stencil with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on Night of Navy cardstock. I highly recommend using the Color Catcher to keep the spray contained. Believe me, I learned this lesson the hard way.
Next, I used a Heat Tool to gently curl my Organza Ribbon and applied it to the card with a length of Bashful Blue grosgrain with a knot of Night of Navy grosgrain on top. I added my greeting from A Little Birthday Cheer in Night of Navy ink and punched out the Whisper White cardstock with the Modern Label punch. I added a Bashful Blue layering piece behind the punch made using my Big Shot and the Movers & Shapers dies.
To finish, I added various white pearls from the Pretties Kit and assembled the card on Bashful Blue cardstock.
Other than the optional greeting, there is no stamping on this card. The Decor Stencils are a great alternative to purchasing a stamp set and economical to buy. If you have any questions on these stencils, please contact me.
