STAMPlorations New Stencil Designer!


We have some very exciting news...our very own Helen Gullett has designed a fabulous line of stencils for STAMplorations and we're celebrating with a super fun blog hop!

 Helen has done an incredible job on these stencils!  Each one contains two fab designs that can be used in so many ways.


For my first card, I created a grass and sky background with distress oxide inks and used Helen's Make Marks 4 stencil as geometric 'blades of grass" - so fun!  The houses are from the Carved Houses set that I stamped in bright colors and the sentiment was cut from shiny gold cardstock using the "Life Is Good" Phrase Die.


For my next card, I used the Make Marks 3 stencil sponging dark brown distress oxide ink - I thought these circles looked a little like coffee rings or beans :)  Then I used the Make Marks 6 stencil and applied a glittery metallic embossing paste.  The coffee image and sentiment are from the STAMPlorations And Coffee set.

Be sure to hop with us to see the wonderful projects the Design Team is sharing highlighting Helen's new stencil line!
