Holidays in a hurry!

Sorry about my last week's post.......I forgot to hit publish (it's a blonde thing)

This week I am sharing an accident that turned out better than the original idea.

On a heavier cardstock, paste LX7016 Season of Joy:
with Pearl paste.

Sprinkle a bit of crystal glitter on the star, trees, and verse.

This is where the mistake came in; I was in a hurry to finish my moms birthday card.  Did the same steps as above, but with a flowered stencil.  Do to my rush I started heating it from underneath.  What I found was the paste bubble more evenly through the thicker cardstock than it did from above or from beneath a standard cardstock weight.

So heat from underneath.  Watch it rise, I love it!!

(The picture does not do it justice.  It's much prettier in person)

Matt and done!  This stencil can be power stenciled if you use the LM 2010 Paste Spreader.
I can usually get four or five before I have to clean my stencil.  For the size of stencil, I thought that was pretty good.

Continue on to see more quick ideas (and sometimes not so quick).

MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS & Happy Holidays to you and yours! 

Looking forward to 2014.
