Stencil Storage with Provence - BoBunny DT

Remember that post I did recently about using Misc Me binders for my stamp storage?  Well I had another idea along the same lines, this time Im using the binder for storage for my new 6x9 Stickable Stencils, and my BB dies.

I wanted to keep most of the cool silver foil background, so I first gessoed the background and then roughly painted the background with Butterscotch and Coral Pearlescents, before using one of the new stencils -  Starling - with Copper Glitter Paste.

A bit of fussy cutting created layers, with some random stamping using To The Point stamp.

My chipboard piece I just coloured in with Chocolate Pearlesents, and then outlined with a black sharpie.

Heres a closeup of that fabulous wee stamp from the set.
Its a cold wet down here, perfect for a day creating by the fire :)  Roll on spring, where are you?!

Sleigh Ride - BoBunny DT

The mid year reveal of collections from BoBunny this year were AWESOME!  Sleigh Ride was one of my favourites :)  C'mon, if you know me well you will so know why lol. Blue and snowflakes :) :)  I had a couple of ideas for OTP - no surprises there lol, - but I decided to first do a layout.  We don't get a lot of snow where I live so I borrowed some pics from friend in Ireland from last winter.

Ive kept it really simple, using one sheet of paper for the base, glitter paste over a stencil, layering some Noteworthy pieces and creating a cluster of poinsettias and a smidgen of fussy cutting.  Now that I write that down it doesn't sound simple!

Two of the trees have been fussy cut from the same piece of paper that the poinsettias are die cut from.  Ive then layered on top of two trees, a third tree from the layered chipboard pack, creating depth to my tree cluster.

Over the background of the my base paper Ive used Gold Glitter Paste over one of the new Stickable Stencils, Snowflake.  I can't say enough how I love glitter paste!!!  Layer it on thick or thin, it still looks fab and dries super quick!

Another little closeup shows the glitter paste and the Spellbinders Poinsettia Ive made.

If you're heading towards Winter this collection will be awesome for you!  Then again if you just finished winter you will no doubt already have the perfect pics ;)

Thanks for popping by, see you next time!
