Christmas stencil techniques

I love playing with stencils.  There are so many different ways to use them.  Today I used three of my Christmas stencils to demonstrate some of these techniques.  Then I used tag dies from the Tim Holtz Framelits die set to cut them into tag shapes.  In my next post I will add embellishments to finish these out.

I used texture paste and a turquoise pigment powder mixed together on this snowflake stencil.

This one is just sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Raspberry.

These are also sprayed with the same color shine only a lighter application.  Looks very different on white card stock.
Holiday knit stencil with white texture paste on red card stock.

These were white on white then once the texture paste was dried I took mini Distress Ink cubes in Twisted Citron and Candied Apple and lightly rubbed them across the surface.

Cricut Adhesive Foil Mug

I just love the adhesive foil by Cricut.    It is so pretty!  Remember to set your dial to Custom and choose adhesive foil from the drop down menu to get the best cut.

This foil makes great projects.  Here's the mug I did.  "This is probably wine"

Here are some other projects I did with the foil.
