Seize the Birthday - Use Stencils

Hello friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and today we have the "Toppings" option of using stencils.  You can read all the details for our challenge at Seize the Birthday blog.

For my card I used a stencil by Heidi Swapp and SU Crumb Cake ink to make my background panel.  I matted this with SU Chocolate Chip CS.  The Sunflower is made with an MFT die (no longer available) using SU Daffodil Delight and Chocolate Chip CS. The banners are made with MFT Fishtail Flags Layers and Pierced Fishtail Flags dies.  The sentiment is from SU Simply Sketched stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.  The banner and flower are mounted with foam tape.

You should check out all the STB designer's fabulous cards using stencils over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
