When cleaned my crafting supplies I came across some old stencils, the one I used before I got a machine. This stencil is a stitching stencil from Ann's Paper Art that is for manual pricking. I loved finding this forgotten treasure.
New 3D Decoupage sheets with beautiful images are now available from Ann's Paper Art.
Ann has created 2 new patterns to go with the new sheets. These FREE patterns can be downloaded of the Card embroidery blog. I had the opportunity to already create 2 cards with them in combination with the new sheets.
For this card I used APA3D005 (my favorite sheet) and the dies from Marianne Design (corner and text).
My second card is with APA3D008 and with this card I used a die from Joy for the border.
As a small Christmas gift I made this cute sleigh with some chocolates to put under the tree. The instruction for this wonderful idea is from Stempeleinmaleins. The image used is from Lili of the Valley.
After a long time where I did not feel like making cards I finally picked it up again. Today I started with the layout from Corrie for the Creaine October Challenge. But after I came to the end-result it does not show the layout as much as it should to enter the challenge. However I did get a desperately needed Christmas card out of it.
The border die I used is from Joy!Crafts, the part circle is from Marianne design and the penguin is from Cottage cutz.
