For the heart stencil background, I simply did some ink blending over some colored cardstock. This is a great way to create a tone-on-tone background without having to ink blend your whole card front. I then shifted the stencil, and added some Glitter Paste, creating a full patterned background with both ink and glitter. So fun!

My Scalloped background is made by simply ink blending. I started on the bottom and ink blended up, chaning colors and having them blend together to create a gorgeous colorful card front! After ink blending, you could always replace the stencil and add some clear glitter paste over the colors for more shimmer!

The snowflake background is some Nuvo Sparkle Spray that I lightly applied over the cardstock. I placed the card base into a cardboard box to contain the mess from the spray, they laid the stencil over the cardstock. Then, I simple sprayed the Sparkle Spray from several inches away to add these gorgeous sparkly snowflakes!

The honeycomb background is some Nuvo gilding flakes. I added some Scrapbook.com double sided adhesive to my cardstock, and then stuck the stencil right over the top. I then added the gilding flakes, brushing away any remaining flakes that didnt stick. Then, I removed the stencil to reveal the background! I also rubbed a little glitter into the lines that remained between the honeycombs, since the exposed adhesive was still sticky.

I have to say, I think the tree background is one of my favorites from this group of stencils! I think it would be beautiful paired with some buffalo check print or other patterns, but I chose to showcase it with stenciling gold glitter paste and Glacier paste from Nuvo. Both are gorgeous, but they dry with different finishes to give slightly different looks.

The Glitter paste dries with more chunky glitter, which I think is beautiful! You could also add some of this glitter to the branches of the die cut tree, if desired.

The Glacier paste dries smooth, but with more of a sheen than the glitter paste. I stenciled both background the same way, and then let them dry.

I then added a few Christmas die cuts, and stamped and embossed sentiments from some Scrapbook.com stamp sets. These sentiments are so much fun!
