I decided to enter the Craft Stamper Magazine challenge for February, which is to stamp and stencil...I stamped some of my favorite Hero Arts feathers on vellum in white Unicorn Ink and trimmed them. I used a journaling card to mount the feathers on, and I stenciled the Hero Arts Arrows in Silver Staz-On Ink on Bazzill aqua cardstock.
I added the aqua enamel dots and embroidery floss in blue and teal. I think this would work for a masculine birthday card.
Don't forget, if you want your own stencils and stamps, you can hop over to a2z Scrapbooking Supplies and whisper my name to the doorman to get a 15% discount on your order of $25 or more (Ok, you just type in CHARK15 but it feels like a speakeasy if you have to use my name at the door, am I right?!)
Take a look at Craft Stamper Magazine—there's a lot of inspiration over there!
