Hi, Friends......

I realized I hadn't made a stenciled card for the Winnie & Walter WCMD 2017 Challenges, so it is a race against time for me (who is both the slowest cardmaker AND the slowest blogger on earth!!) to get this posted in under the wire.  

Then after making my first stenciled background and die cutting the JOY, I liked it so much that I decided to make another one for a set.  Eeek!!  

Will I get these blogged and linked up in time??? We'll see.....

My backgrounds are stenciled with Distress Inks and then heat embossed with clear sparkly powder. LOVE!!!! My glittery word die cuts are layered and off set slightly over white cardstock.
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Multi-Faceted Creative Screenings
Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, and Shaded Lilac
Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Joy Cutaway die
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Noel Cutaway die
DCWV Glitter Cardstock
Core'dinations heavy duty white cardstock
Pretty Pink Posh - Sparkling Clear Mix sequins
DCWV Premade Pastel Card Bases
