Release Countdown Day 4 - Stencils

New stencils in the house - Diagonal Bars and Scattered Bars!  I used to be a little scared of stencils until I forced myself to just keep trying them, and now I find myself reaching for them whenever I want to add a little extra something, especially backgrounds.  Keep on scrolling to see how I've used them in two different ways for two different looks.

My first card shows the Diagonal Bars Stencil used to dry emboss the Lemon Drop Fishtail Flag.

I also embossed falling leaves in the background using the lovely new (and must have) Die-namics Falling Leaves. Burlap Background stamp was used on the Tangy Orange strips to add a bit of autumn texture.

Inside is a sentiment from Words of Gratitude, another die cut leaf and the reverse impressions of the dry embossed leaves on the card front (I love the both versions).

My second card used Scattered Bars Stencil with white embossing paste. I just love the texture of the embossing paste.

A single leaf centers the embossed layer which has been popped up with foam adhesive for extra dimension. If you haven't tried embossing paste with your stencils yet, I highly recommend it, but be careful - it's addictive!

Inside, a stand alone sentiment from Out on a Limb in Sweet Tooth ink.

Remember to check out all of the new product highlights at the MFT Blog and leave comments for your chance at a $75 gift voucher from MFT. I'll see you tomorrow!
