Shopping Our Stash #269

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #269 is....
(Stencils & Dies Only! No Stamping!)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:

I die cut my white card layer with a stitched rectangle die. I took a bit of embossing paste and mixed it with some Cracked Pistachio Distress ink and got this really light "minty" color. I used a chevron stencil and spread my embossing paste over the top. Once I had the thickness I wanted, I put it aside and let it dry a little while I worked on the other elements of the card. I die cut my ''hello" four times and then layered them on top of each other so that it had the thickness of a light chipboard. I added some wink of stella for a little bit of shimmer on my word. I created an ombre effect onto some scrap white paper using the Cracked Pistachio ink and then cut out a strip to place my greeting onto. I added a bit of crochet thread and mounted it to a lace tag. I created a Kraft card base and then started building up my card, popping the greeting layer up with some foam tape. I finished off my card with a few enamel dots. 

Neglected items from my stash that I used are:
--Embossing paste! I love it but don't use it nearly enough
--Stencil. I bought this particular stencil the beginning of Summer and never used it until this challenge.

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

WOW!! Stacey, I absolutely love the stenciling you did with the embossing paste, the color you created is simply lovely. This is something I need to try, I've seen gorgeous cards like yours done with embossing paste but I do not own any stencils or paste so I need to remedy that ASAP!!!
I love all the beautiful details on your card, but that stenciling is just gorgeous.

Stacey, i LOVE this!!! The color-combo is fabulous and the design is, like, hip and classy at the same time, and there's a touch of shabby with the stitching and doily die-- but not too much, just enough for the sweet feel! Well done!
