Stencil mania

Hi... Crafty friends...

Here I am with my first post of the month for Peek-a-boo designs. This moth challenge is  colour inspiration.

Use 3 or more colours from the inspiration picture and link in the challenge post. We would love to see your creations with Peek-a-boo designs for the challenge.

Now coming to my post for the day. I am sharing 3 cards with stencils which released last month. Tried to make Masculine cards which are hard to make (as people say) .

Card #1 - 

* I used BOX-tacular stencil. 
* I used few distress inks to blend. 
* I placed the stencil and blended orange shade colours first then off set the stencil to blend next set of colours. 
* Heat embossed the sentiment. Kept the background pretty simple.

Card #2

Men play the role of angel in our life. As father, as brother and as husband then why can't we give them an angle card?

* Its a double fold card.  
* I die cut a blue CS with the large stitched oval die and white CS with second largest stitched oval die. 
* I placed the white oval on regular card base and blended distress inks very lightly for subtle background. 
* Glued the smaller oval die cut on navy blue oval and glued it on open side of the card base. Stamped a fairy in black ink. 
* Die cut the word with white and heat embossed it with gold UTEE for more dimension, backed it with black diecut word and glued on the card front.

Card #3

Its a simple one layer card and sneak peek of my next post.

* I liked this stencil but i wanted only little portion of the stencil. 
* I selected the area i want on the card, placed it on card front and masked off the remaining area with masking tape/low tacky tape/washi tape. 
* Blended distress inks from darker green to yellow.
* Stamped the sentiment with grey ink so that it doesn't over power the leaves.

I hope you liked these cards..
