Seize the Birthday #285 Double Stenciling - Barbara


This is the first challenge in June for STB and Barbara would like us to use double stenciling on our cards. Come see all of the inspiration created by the DT's and join us for our challenge.  It's a great way to build up your Birthday card stash.

I used Altenew's 3D Tulip and stencil with Gina K.'s Fizzy Stencil.  The sentiment is from PF Ribbons and Balloons.




If you're not a toppings kinda person, well...you can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes" Birthday!
The choice is yours!

Seize the Birthday #284 Ashwini - Use Metallics


Welcome to a new challenge at STB where Ashwini is our lovely hostess.  She would like us to use Metallics on our cards.  Come join us and see all of the awesome cards created by our team.

I used Catherine Pooler new Metallic Gold Ink with Gina K's Wonderfully Made stamp set and a very old PTI stamp set Sketched Shapes.  Sentiment is from PF Ribbons & Balloons.  I struggled a little with this challenge because my norm is colorful flowers.  I finally came up with this card and was happy with it.
