Stenciled Background Christmas Cards

Today I have two more designs from the Stamplorations Christmas Ephemera Kit #1 but this time I stenciled a background for each using a Tim Holtz Poinsettia stencil. I really like how these turned out. I also added some Bic marker here and there for more definition and to change up the color a little bit.



I also am loving those little sentiment stickers and I have been using them on the outside and also on the inside of the cards. The whole kit is so lovely and makes for wonderful cards. I only bought one kit but there are other Christmas kits as well as kits for other occasions.

Well, that is all for me today. We are doing a little remodeling so that I can get a dishwasher. So things are in a bit of a mess at the moment. I hope all of you are doing well and thanks so much for all the wonderful comments you leave me each post. 

Take care and God bless, Verna
