STAMPlorations ARTplorations Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the STAMPlorations ARTplorations blog hop!  I've got a couple of masculine cards for you today, using the same techniques as yesterday.  The stencil I've used is called Broken Glass.

This was the positive stencil, with a Happy die cut, and a 'birthday' from Sentiment Builders: Happy.

This negative print reminds me of one of those steel structured glass buildings - an atrium or glass dome or something.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for details on the hop and how to win.


  1. WOW! These two cards are amazing! I love how the bronze colored sentiment totally works with the colors of your beautifully blended broken glass background! The second card ABSOLUTELY does conjure up images of a steel structure! You are so dang clever girl!

  2. I just ordered this stencil.
    Anxious to try the positive/negative
    stenciling. You've given me the
    push to try to perfect the technique.
    thanks for sharing a wonderful project.

  3. Love a twofer! 2 lovely CAS cards.

  4. Excellent positive and negative creations, Shirley! Love the colors! Are you all settled back in to your normal routine by now? I'm glad you're home safe and I'll bet it was a blast from start to finish!! Happy Holiday hugs! Darnell

  5. I Love both your cards Shirley. Your Broken Glass Stencil is so versatile. TFS my friend. Hugs, Nancy

  6. This is such a great use of the stencil and I don't know why I don't ever think to do something like this!! Gorgeous colors and design! Merry Christmas!

  9. What a great look for guy cards - I think that broken glass stencil might have just leaped onto my wish list!!
