I have been having lots of fun with stencils!!  Simon Says Stamp has introduced stencils into their line, and the stencils from the Holiday Release are SUCH FUN!!  My card was made with the HO HO HO stencil...
I sponged the stencil with ink...and then tried a new technique...using embossing paste!  Embossing paste looks like a thick glue.  HERE is a video I watched, in case you should be interested. You apply it with a knife right over your stenciled ink...lift the stencil and let it dry...usually a couple hours...what's REALLY cool, it gives shine and dimension to stenciling....actually  made the letters darker and show brighter than just plain stenciled, easy and fun...LOVE!!! ...
 After the paste dried, I cut the words out and popped up on card.  The card measures 4 1/4 x 6.  Thought the black reminded me more of Santa than the original green card that I had these on...but could see these on a variety of colored backgrounds.  FUN!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
