Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea

A few cooler days brought on some productive craft time!

I bought these two beautiful stencils a couple of weeks ago
while in the store, and finally got round to checking them out.

The card below is my first attempt, and I just love how it
turned out.

The stencils are by Altenew

Layered Dahlia Stencil A
Layered Dahlia Stencil B
Butterfly Punch - Martha Stewart

I used a yellow dye ink pad, and
Wild Honey distress ink on my card.
You end up with  white border, but I cut
the white border off so I could mat with
a deep yellow card stock.

The Stencils make a large card 6x6 inches
But you could always use a portion of the stencil
and make smaller note cards like these 5 x 3 3/4 inch cards.

Loved using these stencils, make a very pretty card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.  Until later.....

Wow! I have not seen "layered" stenciling for decades, Sue! Leave it to Altenew. Your cards are amazing. I love that you used more than one size card and card shape, in your display of these beauties. It must have been fun making these pretty note cards! hugs, de

These are beautiful. I'm a little intimidated by stencils. I think I need to staple them down so they never move. Love the colors you used. [Bunny]
