Stenciled background sympathy card.

Have just received our monthly Stampin' Up! magazine which showcased a new technique of stenciled backgrounds.  I don't have the punch they suggested but had a play with my scalloped square and here is the result! This was the second attempt, the first one I'll show you tomorrow.

(Please click on photos for a close-up view).

What I used:

Card:  So Saffron, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla

Ink:  Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip

Stamp Sets:  Eastern Blooms, Teeny Tiny Sentiments

Tools and other fun stuff:  Scalloped Square punch, Bird punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Lots of Tags Sizzlits die, Stampin' sponges, Basic Pearls, Stampin' dimensionals.


  1. Time to go and have that rest I've been promising myself and finally unwrap the latest Impressions.

  2. Aren't these stenciled cards great Frances? I love your take on this idea. I have done one too and was very pleased with the results. Will post in a couple of days. A great idea for workshops ♥

  3. Beautiful card! Love the color choice and stamps:)
