Awesome new stuff, right?  And here's how I was inspired:

So, Bunny Vance dared me to use the Knit Stitch Cover Plate as a stencil.  I mean... her words were "It's fun to stencil with"... but you heard it, right?  She was taunting!  So of course I had to take the dare and I have to say it was fun to stencil with!  I did my "stenciling" with some glitter water color so it's a very distressed version, but I love it!  I covered the background with the coppery color first and smooshed it with a coffee filter and then stenciled with a brush and very little water into the negative spaces of the die.  Easy peasy to wash it off with water.

Next, I stamped the pumpkin from the new Hug In A Mug stamp set and the books/cup and sentiment from the Coffee & Books set, colored and cut them out.  I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut from the Minnie Pearl Bookmark Die Set and just trimmed the bookmark shorter and added some Old Paper Distress Ink.  I added all of my pieces to my stenciled panel with various thicknesses of foam tape along with a few sequins.

Thanks for visiting!  Now... do you want one of these?
