CAS Mix Up October 2017

Hello friends.  This month's challenge at CAS Mix Up is all about layering more than one stencil down on your card.

Took me awhile to wrap my head around this challenge (that's why they call them "challenges", right??!!), but once I got going it was fun to see what stencils I had that would look cool layered together.  I ended up using a Winnie & Walter stencil called Pattern Of The Rings and then made a stencil using a small snowflake die from Impression Obsession (DIE100-F).

Here you can see the half I didn't use and practiced on with stenciling in the snowflake.

And here's what it ended up looking like after I stenciled both layers (with Ocean Tides ink) and then put the card together.  I matted my stenciled layer with a piece of Ocean Tides cs and adhered to a white card base that I added a die cut from Memory box called Loopy Rings.  I love how this die cut kind of mimicked the Pattern Of The Rings stencil I used.  I also added 2 of the small Impression Obsession snowflakes by the die cut circles and then added a main snowflake die cut in gold mirror cs from PTI's Silver White Winters.  My sentiment is from PTI's Cutaway Tags: Winter and is stamped in black on a Ocean Tides banner.

There is still time to play along with this challenge (closes the 24th) and lots of GORGEOUS inspiration from the DT.  You can check it all out and play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
