Good morning and welcome! It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS. Nancy is your hostess and she's picked STENCILS as your trend! It's still a very popular one, so we hope you have fun with it! Here are a couple cards I've made:
My embossing paste started out white, but I smooshed Teal Zeal and Gray Flannel inks on my craft mat, then took some paste and blended the colors into it with my pallet knife. The sentiment was inked a couple times using my recently purchased MISTI. I LOVE this tool! The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory.
Here's card #2:
and the inside:
I used that white embossing paste again for the skull stencil, and after washing off the stencil, I sprinkled neon green embossing powder over it, tapped off the excess, and let the paste completely dry before heat embossing.
I hope you find some time to break out those stencils and make something with them! Please be sure to link up at Just Us Girls so we can see your wonderful creations! While there, please check out what the Design Team and our October Guest Designer, Julie Gearinger, have made to inspire you! Remember, that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our October & November challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of January! Good luck and happy crafting!
I'd like to enter my first card at Nacho Average Challenges #162
