If you haven’t seen the release you can check all the products HERE. Today I am showcasing one of my favorite products from this release, the Leafy Frame stencil. I used three different techniques to achieve different looks and to give you ideas on how to make the most of this stencil.
For my first card I used distress oxide inks over the stencil. Use your favorite color combination and you have a lovely background perfect for any occasion.
On this card I combined two different colors of dylusions shimmer sprays! Love the effect and how clean and crisp the white leaves look against those colors.
For my third card I applied glimmer paste over the stencil. A gorgeous color and a lovely texture and shine!

I love how you created three cards with one stencil. The blue glimmer paste is so pretty. Thanks for always inspiring me to get more adventurous with my crafting.
I love these cards so much that I had to order the stencil so I would have it in my stash. When it arrives I am hoping to make cards with it like you have.
Your work is so beautiful and it has inspired me once again.
Thank you Vicki
