CAS Stencil September Challenge

Hi everyone.  It's the start of the CAS Stencil September Challenge.  This month is hosted by the amazingly talented, Julia (Create with Me).  Julia wants us to use a Baby Wipe with Stenciling for this month's challenge


This is actualy the second version of this design.  I first made a similar design, using a different stamps for a special birthday card.  It turned out really well but wasn't CAS enough for the challenge (not enough white space), so I made a second version.  The card sbove has lots of white space to balance my mixed media panel.

I stamped an image from Magenta and heat embossed in white.  I then sponged over top of the white embossing with Distress inks (Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Wilted Violet).  I placed a new-to-me stencil over top and used a baby wipe to remove some of the colour.  The design is subtle, but you can definitely see the leaf design (especially in the close-up below).  A simple stamped sentiment in black finishes the card.

We are also excited to welcome Sarah (Funky Fossil Designs) as our Guest Designer.  Welcome Sarah!  Please check out the challenge blog to see the baby wipe through stencil cards from Sarah and our amazing Designers.  Then come join us!

I'll also share the first version of this card using a different stamped image.  I'm so happy with how this turned out.  Very artsy, colourful and fun.  This is a birthday card for my SIL, Alex that he received on Aug. 24th.

I always chuckle now, Lolly, because when you finish your post with a photo of Jessie, I always forget your cards and have to scroll back up! She is a love and both your cards are so colorful and so pretty using this technique! My favorite is your artsy warm card for Alex which he will treasure!! Hugs, Dolly

The subtle baby wipe lift is such a great contrast to the bold colour over your embossing, Loll ... these are both so striking and fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)

Both cards are gorgeous, Loll! You see the bright colors and the beautiful white heat-embossed images and script background first. And then the soft and subtle stenciled leaves emerges. Wonderful baby wipe effect!
Jessie is so adorable, and I want to take a nap next to her on the couch!
