Christmas Craft Creations Challenge Reminder - Stencils or Embossing Folders

Hi crafters,

The Christmas Craft Creations Reminder Team is back with more beautiful inspiration for our February challenge.  The theme this month is Stencils or Embossing Folders.

I had a tough time choosing which products to use for this challenge - I love stencils and embossing folders.  I ended up using a stencil set from Lawn Fawn called Poinsettia Background Stencils.  I'll be honest and confess that I can't remember for the life of me what inks I used to colour this stencil set!  I think it was Simon Says Stamp inks but I really can't remember.  However the golden paste layer was Gold Rush Lunar Paste by Simon Hurley Create.  I love the Lunar Pastes for their immense shine and versatility.  I didn't want to cut my background down so I made a 6" square card and wrapped it up with some red metallic twine from Hobbycraft.  I finished by stamping a MFT sentiment from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set onto a Tim Holtz tag die cut.  This die set is super old so I'm not sure if Tim even makes it anymore.  It was the perfect size for my "present".  I ink blended inside the edges of the tag to make it stand out from the background.  

I hope you can join us for our Stencils or Embossing Folders theme.  You have until 12 March 2024 at 6pm GMT to submit your entry.

Happy Christmas crafting,
