clarity stencil and homework

Well last month Barbara set a challenge: to see what we could come up with using the stencil that came with lesson 22. Here are some things i came up with.

In the first card i used hills as sand dunes and used distress inks and brushes to colour them in. I used other side of stencil on sky.
I stamped the 3 wise men from lesson 5 and the star and finished it off with the sentiment.

Here i used the same stencil and made trees out of hills. The hardest bit is the masking to make sure that lines are kept clean. Again done with distress inks and brushes. The other side i used to create snowy ground. Dear are from another lesson i think 14.
I added some glitter to finish it off.

This was another topper I made with stencil. Similar to first card. When Massimo saw this he wanted to make one. His is the left one and i think it's better than mine!

This was the first thing i made but i forgot to send it in. I embossed one of the 'hills' using my GC. Then i turned it over to do other side thus creating a bauble. Then i covered all embossed areas with versamark ink using pen and embossed them with red tinsel glitter powder. At the join i added double sided tape and sprinkled gold glitter. I punched a hole at the top and added some twine and a bow.
I finished bauble off with a red poinsettia from Sweet lilac flowers.

I hope you enjoy my post as much as i enjoyed all these makes. Take care, Theresa xx


  1. Three clever ideas there Theresa. All so different too. I think the bauble's my fave though. Fab work from Massiomo. He's so talented. x

  2. I loved all of these Theresa, such clever ideas, thanks for the inspiration x
