stenciled fall cards with pretty pink posh

Raise your hand if you are getting excited for fall! I'm assuming you are all raising your hands high so lets talk about creating some fall-ish thank you cards with the latest Pretty Pink Posh stencils! (By the way you are here just in time for day 3 of the PPP September release hop!)


Before I share my card, there's more fun! There are 3 $25 gift certificates to Pretty Pink Posh up for grabs! Enter to win by leaving comments along the hop by 11:59pm PST on September 21st, 2022. The winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

I would love to tell you that I did something really clever to make these cards but honestly the fab stencils, Layered Foliage and Layered Apples, did all the work!

Since both sets are layered stencils its ridiculously easy to use them to create beautiful stenciled card fronts. My only tip is that I find the stencils easier to use with blending brushes instead of foam (but foam still works if that's what you've got).

I used Distress Oxide inks Dried Marigold and Saltwater Taffy with the foliage. And Saltwater Taffy & Festive Berried with the apples.

To finish the cards I used the "thanks" from the Give Thanks Script die and paired it with tiny typed stamped sentiments from Hedgehog Friends and Floral Hearts. I placed both parts on a vellum circle (and my vellum adhesive seems really visible in the pics but you can barely see it in real life.)

Your next stop on the hop is Lisa Mears blog and I'm sure you are going to love it! Here's the whole hop list in case you need it...


Thanks so much for hopping with us! Hugs!!!

I love the new apple stencils. thanks for the tip to use blending brushes instead of foam. I’m going to try this. I have noticed that some stencils will scrub the top of the foam off, so maybe the brushes will work better. Thanks for sharing.
