CAS Stencil October Challenge

Hi everyone.  Today's card is for the new CAS Stencil challenge for October.  This month I'm hosting and I'm asking you to use patterened paper. :)  We all have tons of patterned paper in our cupboards, so time to pull some out and create a stenciled card with the patterned paper in the background.

The card above uses a very subtle, small green check paper as the background.  I sponged over top through a NBUS poinsettia stencil that I bought recently.  I love how it turned out!  I used the whole 6"x6" sheet of checked paper to stencil.  I only used a portion of it for the card above.

I used a leftover piece to create a second card ...
Cut a square and added a stitched white frame and sentiment to finish.

Oh my, Loll...Gorgeous stenciled poinsettias over your subtle green checked patterned paper. I love the font on your Christmas sentiment and CAS design. What an awesome way to use up our hoards of DSP too:-)

Loved your 2nd CAS design with your leftovers too. TFS and hosting this fun challenge, my friend. Hugs..Nancy

Your poinsettia stenciling looks wonderful over the graph pattern Loll! Wonderful deep colors used - and so nice to have more pieces to create multiple cards! Thanks for this fun challenge this month! xx

What a great idea for the challenge Loll to use some patterned paper. I have recently done a card stamping on a paper and it gives a different but very pleasing look. I love the bright poinsettias and leaves you have stencilled on the small green grid which really adds to the stencilling without overpowering it, and then the second using a stitched square frame to display it. Two fabulous cards!

Your stenciled poinsettias are gorgeous, Loll! I love how the pattern peeks out from the crisp edges of your vibrant colors! Such a beautiful sentiment, too!

Love the rich red and green of the stenciled poinsettias on this subtle patterned paper, Loll! A great choice for background and two gorgeous CAS cards!

A couple of months ago I started pulling out pattern paper, along with other things, to either use or donate. (Such a good feeling to clean out stuff!) Have been using pattern paper for Christmas and other cards...and keeping it simple and easy. Love the look of sponging thru a stencil on pattern paper...gonna try it this afternoon. Thank you!

Christine Alexander said...

what a great way to use up all that DP. I love your poinsettia stencilling, it's so crip and clean :)

Marcia Hill said...

Both of your cards are absolutely GORGEOUS Loll! Those Poinsettia's really pop against the soft DSP and I can't wait to go through my mountain high stash of DSP and see what I can come up with! Thanks for such a FUN challenge!! :0)

Mac Mable said...

Always good to get two cards from the same technique Loll. What a fun idea to use the patterned paper and thank you for the inspiration to do so x. Wonderful cards, both of them and the stencilling looks so striking and fabulous CAS designs too x.

Skylark said...

I'm glad it's not just me - what a great way of use up some of our stash of patterned paper! Will try and join in the challenge if I can but crafting time is quite limited for me at the mo! Thanks for the inspiration Loll! Stef x

Gorgeous, Loll ... the rich, bold colours in the panels on each card contrast beautifully with the crisp white! Hugs, Anita :)
