So Shelli Vintage CASE

Those of you who know Shelli Gardner, the CEO and co-founder of Stampin' Up!, will agree that this card is "so Shelli". So it wouldn't be a huge surprise to tell you I CASEd the idea from her blog! Shelli has been blogging about her cross-country workshop tour and this stenciled card was one of the make and takes at one of her recent workshops. Mine is a little different, but the concept is the same. I just love the combination of the Elegant Trio Decor Stencils (#118362, $9.95) and the Vintage Labels stamp set. My stamp club members loved it too and several of them bought the stencils and ended up choosing the Vintage Labels as their free Sale-a-bration gift! (You can order these products in my Online Store right now!)

Shelli hosts a monthly challenge on her blog and this month's theme is stenciled projects. I'll have to come up with something more original to submit. Maybe I'll sit this month out though since I was just picked as a winner of last month's challenge! (SMILE) I was pretty excited and honored to see my name on the list! Check out my winning card here.

Here's another version of my stenciled card. I was trying to bring it some color to make it more springy, but I decided I liked the sepia toned card the better since it feels more vintage and elegant.

Supplies: Vintage Labels, Soft Suede ink/marker & cardstock, Sahara Sand ink, VeryVanilla cardstock, Thoroughly Modern DSP, Elegant Trio Stencils, Small Oval Punch, Corner Rounder, 1/16" Hole Punch, Clear Rhinestone Brads, Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Color Spritzer Tool, Stampin' Dimensionals
