{Stencil Sunday} Bold and Bright Floral Beauties by Vicki

Hello, STAMPlorations friends! We are back with another helping of Stencil Sunday goodness! On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of the month, the STAMPgirls are sharing their projects that show off how to creatively use ARTplorations stencils. And each month, we'll pick one winner of a $15 gift code -- the winner will be drawn from all comments left on the Stencil Sunday posts for the month, as well as from the designers' blogs.

Kicking off this month's Stencil Sunday feature is STAMPgirl Vicki, who played with two of our flower stencils to create some stunning cards!


Here's Vicki with her projects:

Hi all, Vicki Dutcher here from All I Do Is Stamp. While you can see all the amazing ARTplorations stencils Shery offers HERE, today, I am using 2 of them.

For my first card, I went with a pretty stencil, Peony No. 2. I used my Geli Plate with yellow acrylic paint.

For this first card, I laid down the stencil onto a piece of cardstock that was on the plate, and spread the paint over the top. You get a lovely full version of the fun flower. I added on a sentiment from the Beach Vibes stamp set.

Not wanting to waste the paint, I took the painted stencil, flipped it over, and laid it over another panel of cardstock, and got this second lovely image too.

I love using my geli plate with stencils. Getting 2 cards with one technique works for me. I used a different sentiment from the Beach Vibes stamp set.



For my second stencil, I used the gorgeous Rose Duet stencil.

I used the standard, sponging on ink through the stencil, and added the sentiment using A Gem stamp. I added on a few sequins, and my 2nd card is complete.


I hope you enjoyed my use of the ARTplorations stencils. I had fun creating them. [And if you happen to shop for stencils, don't forget to use my code STAMPGIRLVICKID to save 20% off your purchase.]


Vicki sure knows how to make bold and graphic cards, and she rocked our stencils, didn't she? For a chance to win a $15 gift code to the STAMPlorations store, leave a comment here and on Vicki's blog by June 5. We'll announce the winner in the May winners post on June 10.

Did you enjoy today's featured post? Stencil Sunday will be back next week with 4 projects from STAMPgirl Jane!
