Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - Reverse Stenciling

Today's card was made for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge.  Betsy has a video showing a reverse stenciling technique.  I don't have a lot of stencils, so I ended up using the Spellbinders Impressabilities Flourish.  It's basically a metal stencil that worked just as well as a plastic stencil and I was happy with the results.  I used that as my background with the PTI You've Been Framed: Hexagon Die.  I love these You've Been Framed dies, as you probably noticed I used them a lot.  The sentiment was done using the PTI Wet Paint Cuts Dies.  The Birthday was from the PTI Wet Paint Stamp Set.  I finished it off using the PTI dies & stamps from the Rosie Posie sets.   The leaves were from the PTI Turning A New Leaf stamps & dies.  So here is my card.

 I like how this background turned out and will probably use the technique again.

Art Impressions Challenge - Aging With Attitude

I haven't posted for a while, but I'm back with a fun card using the stamps from Art Impressions/Hampton Arts that I picked up at Michaels.  The set is called Bowling and it has a lot of fun sentiments and images.  I think these gals go perfect with this week's challenge at the AI Blog called Aging With Attitude.  

The background paper was from the Glitz paper pack called Uncharted Waters.  The sentiment & bowling pins on the front of the card also came with the set.
