{Stencil Sunday} Carol Creates His and Her Cards


Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! How is your summer going? It's time for a new batch of stencil inspiration. You'll get to see 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.

STAMPgirl Carol has got a treat for us today -- his and her versions of cards.

  

  


Here's Carol with her cards:

Hello, Carol here, welcoming you to my first June Stencil Sunday post where, once again, I'm sharing some simple ways to play with the wonderful array of stencils available at STAMPlorations.

Guys and Gals...that's my theme for today's cards. I selected two of the new 6x6 stencils and created *his and her* versions through simple changes in colour and sentiments. Fun and definitely easy to make!

Card 1 - Guy Version
Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch Distress/Distress Oxide inks




Card 2 - Gal Version
Up and Down, Hey Sunshine - Clear Stickers (I separated love + you from "Do what you love")
I used a little frame/arrow die from my stash, leaving the top portion of the frame open to insert a small photo. 
Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Milled Lavender Distress/Distress Oxide inks





Card 3 - Guy Version
Distress inks are the same as those in Card 1
RAD is a sticker from my stash and the You Are is stamped on a sentiment die that I transformed into an arrow.




Card 4 - Gal Version
Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean Distress inks
The arrow is a die from my stash




As you can see, I'm smitten with these two stencils that can be used every 'which way'! Hope you found my Guys and Gals feature smile-making and inspiring.

***

Aren't these cards super? For a chance to win a $15 gift code to the STAMPlorations store, leave a comment here and on Carol's blog by July 8. We'll announce the winner in the June winners post on July 10.


Did you enjoy today's featured post? Carol will be back in two weeks for two more awesome projects.

  20. This is a great idea to simply change the colors for a male version of the card! Masculine cards are hard for me to make.
