Stencil Fun Challenge - CAS (clean & simple)

 Hello Everyone!

It's time for another fun challenge over on our latest blog ...  Stencil Fun Challenge !

We decided to add another challenge blog to our list of challenge blogs and this time will will be about using our STENCILS.  This challenge will be a MONTHLY challenge and will begin on the FIRST TUESDAY of each month.  It will always be an ANYTHING GOES with STENCILS challenge but we will be offering an OPTIONAL THEME

Here is the theme I have chosen as our optional theme:


 Here is my 'CAS themed' card . . .



I have used one of my favorite Memory Box Stencils today called 'Texture Honey Comb' (#88521).

The inking was done using TH Distress Oxide inks and sponge daubers.
My BEE is from a Hero Arts Monthly set that I just love and sadly is no longer available.  And my HAPPY word is from the 'Happy' is by Memory Box 'Share the Happiness' (#30007)


Challenges to share in:

Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #564 - Bees


 A Place to Start March Challenge - ATG
Dream Valley Challenge #289 - Things With Wings


 For my second card (Anything Goes), I decided to create a card of 'encouragement'.

I have used the Tim Holtz 'Bricked' (THS038) stencil and inked it using TH Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink.  The sentiment was computer generated then die cut using a Tutti Designs Stitched Scalloped Square die.  I found a couple cute little heart stickers in my scrapbooking stash so thought it was the perfect finishing touch.

We hope you'll come join in our fun and GOOD LUCK!!

As always . . .
