Easy and Quick cards with New Release Stencils

Hello friends!
Vinita here!

It's my first post of this month here and half of the month already flies so quickly!

Have you seen the new release in Stencil category, all the designs are just awesome for any craft medium? You can visit here at the store.

Today I am showcasing some quick and easy steps using stamps and stencils and they are fit for manly cards too!

Card 1

The card base is in Chrome Yellow color. Using my new stencil, I applied texture embossing paste and mixed it with silver glitter paste for shine, created the awesome geometric pattern. Let it dry properly.

I die cut a black stitched textured rectangle border. Die cut sentiments in black. 
Now on a textured silver sheet and on an acetate sheet, I stamped the butterfly image using Staz on Black ink which can be used on all non-porous surfaces and get perfect results. Fussy cut them and adhered the acetate one on the silver one for dimension.

Now placed the border using dimensions dot and placed the sentiments and butterfly too. Embellished it with enamel and pearl dots.

Card 2

Here is another card I came up with using the stencil and butterfly stamp!
Started by stencilling the vintage damask background on a smoky blue CS applied black pigment ink. Before drying the ink, I applied silver pearl powder on the ink as shown in the pic:

Now wrapped the focal panel with a frilled black satin ribbon and adhered to a cream color CS with dimensional dots.

Stamped the butterfly onto a light cream CS in black pigment ink and added the silver pearl touch to it, attached it on the ribbon.  Finished off the card with a sentiment and some rhinestones.

Card 3

On This, I used curved stencil in different distress inks and blended the picked raspberry ink at the top.

 Now at the bottom left corner, I stamped the picnic stamp set in black Archival ink and leave uncolored the image as I want to show the still life on this image that you can achieve easily with simplicity!

Now from the same stamp set, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with bright opaque white embossing powder and added a die cut sentiment.
