April Club Projects - Stencils 3 Ways

These are our stamp club projects for April. Not my usual combinations, but I wanted to highlight Decor Elements Elegant Trio Stencil Collection and use retiring color combos. We used the stencils in 3 ways. From left to right: emboss resist, heat-n-stick powder with fine cosmo glitter, and traditional sponging.

Ruby Red, Blush Blossom, and Close to Cocoa will all retire in June. They make a pretty color combination, I think.

I think the flourish from Baroque Motifs works perfectly with the fleur-de-lis stencil. I love Taken with Teal, and this fine glitter - so fun! Not so fun cleaning it up after the kids managed to get into it!
