One Stencil, Two Cards For Rudolph Days

it’s time for me to share my design team creation for this month’s Rudolph Days Challenge, hosted By Maureen, where you have until the end of the month to play along for a chance for a lovely prize; the detailed list of all the rules are posted on maureen’s blog.

I used an everyday penny black stencil, petite blossom, that I thought would pass for holiday greenery; I stencilled hickory smoke distress ink onto white card stock and used a strip of red glitter paper to accent the die cut sentiment. for the second card I spritzed the stencil and pressed watercolour paper onto it to get the opposite look.

Update: Creative Expressions sentiment die and Wendy Vecchi – Make Art – Stay-tion – 7 Inch for stencil use.

thanks for popping by.

  1. I had to come over and see how you did these cards, like Maureen the second one looked liked vellum. The stencilling is so wonderful and it certainly passes for holiday greenery. I also wanted that sentiment die! (or have I got it ha ha! need to check).

  2. Hi Linda,
    Happy Rudolf Days.
    2 wonderful cards and so beautifully designed too.
    Love how you have made them both from that wonderful stencil and both so different and gorgeous..
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Two lovely cards, Linda. I was guessing how you made them on the RD post! I did think a stencil was the most likely answer.
    I only have a very few stencils and I have not got into using them yet. I should and then I could enter over at Darnel’s NBUS challenge! I like to support her challenges.

    Hope all is well with you. I have been enjoying the garden today and tidied up a few plants. It has been a strange year for my clematis. I have had three varieties of them flower again this fall. They have not done that before! Perhaps it is just that they are finally old enough as they were only 2 year plants when I got them and have added one each year. So the flowering ones could be the new ones from last year and the year before…

    Hugs and thanks for doing a great job designing for us!

  4. Wow! This stencil makes for gorgeous cards, Linda! Love that pop of red with the stenciled backgrounds!

  5. These are both such beautiful cards! I just love all the smoky stems on the first with the sentiment panel dividing the top from the bottom with a hint of red! The 2nd is just beautiful and such a great alternative way to use that stencil! Beautiful cards for Rudolph Days!

  6. Loving both your cards Linda but especially the misty look of the first with the pop of red. What a great use of the stencil! Vicky x
