Thinking of you

For today's card I have departed from my normal A2 size card and gone way back to my roots, when all I did was 5.5 square cards.
The stencil I used for this card just spoke to me in 5.5 inch, to show the beauty of the stencil. 
 We have also come along in how we work with stencils, but for this card, again I went back to the beginning when stencilling with paste was the thing, now we have glitter too! We have all kinds of mediums that make beautiful cards with a stencil. 
 This card is going to an old friend who has just had surgery and I know she will appreciate the sparkle and the design of the stencil. 
 I placed the stencil on my 5 inch square piece of cardstock and taped down to hold in place. Starting with the yellow glitter paste I did the centre part of the stencil, then finished stencilling with the white glitter. The white glitter has a blue undertone to it, so I stamped the sentiment using a turquoise ink from Wendy Vecchi.
I matted the "thinking of" sentiment with more white card stock, and stamped and die cut the "you" and attached with foam squares. 
To finish I added a few crystal gems, which still keeps the card clean and simple, but adds a bit of glam for my friend. 

I am also entering this card in the CAS April Stencil Challenge with hopes that it is CAS enough - lol!

Thank you for visiting today. 


  1. What a lovely stencil Kia! and I like how you used the yellow and white on it so the eye is drawn to the center - and what gorgeous sparkle achieved with your glimmer and sparkle pastes! thanks for joining us in the CAS Stencil this month! xx

  2. A gorgeous very special card Kia, I'm sure it will add some sparkle to your friends day... love that you kept it CAS with just the yellow center and then changed to white, matching beautifully with the blue sentiment, thanks so much for sharing with CAS Stencil

  3. Gorgeous shine and glitter on your stenciled image covered with glimmer paste, Kia. I love how you went back and added the yellow to the center of the stencil. It looks like a beautiful shiny, glittery flower. Wonderful die cut sentiment to finish off your CAS design. TFS my friend. Hugs..Nancy

  4. Your beautiful stenciling works perfectly with your square card, Kia! I love how you used yellow and white, and how you added all the lovely sparkle to your design...such a lovely card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS Stencil!

  5. The glitter paste looks fab and what a great idea to use the yellow in the centre. The aqua sentiment is a lovely contrast. Thank you for sharing at CAS Stencil!
