Loved seeing your quick video of how the cards came together. I love them all! I really loved the elephant card with the vibrant striped colors. At first I almost thought it had a 3D look to it and I was curious how you did that! Those elephants are one of my favorites from these release. Adorable!

Great cards! Thanks for the video sharing your stenciling techniques. Its hard to pick a favorite product. Both animal sets are adorable and I really need the graduation stuff. I don't own anything like them and am constantly using and resizing clipart pics from the internet or trying to freehand stuff.

Annalisa said...

What a great compilation of ideas for using stencils! I think my favorite card is the little elephant tower, because elephant tower. However, my favorite use of the stencils is probably the leaves. I don't think I would have tried that, assuming it would be too busy, but I love how it turned out. Thanks for always sharing such quality cards with us, Ardyth!

Joan C said...

The cards are so pretty. My favorite is the tower of elephants with those vibrant colors you used with the stencil
