Two Step Stencils!!

It's time for my card for Tammy's Creative Team Friday post, and today I'm thrilled to be showing you one of her NEW 2-step stencils, made by StencilGirl!


supplies:  white, Audrey Blue, Green Apple, and Green Leaf card stock, Tammy's Petite Greens stencils and lucky clover, twisted citron, and mowed lawn distress inks, Simon's Stitched Rectangle die, 3-dot stamp from Simon's Flowers on my Mind, Winnie & Walter Happy cutaway, Memory Box (retired) Perched Reed Bird, Hero Arts (retired) Essential Messages

These new stencils are designed to be used in 2 steps and they are SO much fun and easy to use!

I chose 3 green distress inks and applied them first through the fern stencil, then through the accompanying leaf stencil.  That panel was trimmed with a stitched rectangle, framed with a green cardstock, and affixed to my white card base.  I stamped  little dots in the white spaces using the same inks.  The Happy cutaway was cut from 2 green cardstocks and glued together, offsetting the light one just slightly from the darker one below it.  The bird was cut and then sponged with more of the lucky clover ink for definition, and I used mowed lawn to stamp my "birthday" panel.

In case you missed it, I used another of Tammy's stencils, a plaid duo, HERE.

I hope you'll hop on over to Tammy's blog to see what my DT sisters made this time!  Tammy's products are expanding in all directions, so I know there'll be a lovely variety to see there!
