Hi, STAMPlorations fans! Leslie here from Love To Scrap 2 and I'm delighted to be back on the blog with another Stencil Sunday guest designer post! I have several fun projects to share with you today, so let's do it up!

My first project is a pretty tag using the Stitched Tags Nesting Dies, the Squares Flexi-Template and the Layered Vase stamp set

Using several randomly placed square flexi-templates and light green ink, I inked a half-sheet of white cardstock, cut the tag using the largest die in the set, and stamped the image and sentiment in black ink plus several additional colors for the fill-ins. 


I did some basic ink blending with distress inks on a sheet of white cardstock and cut layering panels from gold foil cardstock and the inked cardstock. I then created the focal image with a clear sticker cut with a nesting die, and added a few enamel dot embellishments. A coordinating belly band holds the card together. 

I embellished the inside panel with strips of gold foil and inked cardstock, added a clear sticker sentiment and layered the panel on gold foil cardstock. 


And my third project is a pair of simple shaped thank you note cards using the Abstract Oats Stencil andJust Thank You Clear Stickers

Using the abstract oats stencil, I applied transfer gel and ran the panels through the laminator, layered them on dark brown cardstock, and added a clear sticker sentiment on white cardstock which I trimmed and also layered on dark brown cardstock.

Since these are note cards I left the inside panels blank to write a custom message.

That's it for today! I hope you are inspired to get crafty and pull out those stencils! Thanks so much for stopping by - we'll see you next time!

Scrappy hugs,
