Seize the Birthday Challenge #285 Double Stenciling

Hello crafters! It is time again for another card challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time I am the host.  I have chosen a technique that I had fun with, and I hope that you will too. You may have seen it on a video, that is where I saw it first. 

Let me explain it to you. When I say Double Stenciling, I would like you to use a stencil and before you pick it up, place another one over the top and fill in it. I don't mean that you should use just two stencils on your project. Check out my card. 

If you are not a toppings crafter, just make sure it is a birthday theme.

The flowers are a stencil with a matching die cut. After placing the stencil and coloring it, I place another stencil over the top and used that one too. Then it was die cut out. 

If you are still having trouble with this double stenciling that I chose, check out the video here. 

Supplies for this card:
GKD Fancy Floral Stencil Bundle
Simon Says Stamps Falling snow
Inks, Lavendar fields, 
Deep iris, Eucalyptus, Forest Fern

Double D Challenge - Polka Dots

Darlene has a fun challenge and mood board for us on this challenge. 


The Prize

My card

All of the die cuts for this card came from my desk top and were previously cut out. All I did was take my Posca white pen and go over the dots on the vellum. It was amazing how quickly it came together. That does not happen often. 

Supplies for this card:
Paper Trey Ink Into the Blooms Peonies die
Polka dot vellum
GKD embellishments
Hugs sentiment in my scrap box

Don't forget to check out the challenge blog for more inspiration.
