Hello Honey Bee friends! Have you tried the new Autumn Delights stencil set? This was my first go at it, and I love it! The size is large enough that you can easily make two cards from the one stenciled piece too! Gotta love that!

I use 80# Neenah Solar White for all of the white cardstock on these cards. I started with a 6″ x 6″ piece for the Autumn Delights stencils. I used Distress Inks and Detail Blender Brushes for each layer of the stencil set. I really like the regular Distress Inks compared to the Distress Oxides for the bright and clear colors. I used these Distress Ink colors: Aged Mahogany, Seedless Preserves, Fired Brick, Crackling Campfire, Rusty Hinge, Mowed Lawn, and Rustic Wilderness.

The only stencil layer that I didn’t use Distress Inks with is the stencil that’s labeled “small stems”. I used a separate ink blending brush to add Bee Creative Metallic Gold ink through that stencil. While I had that out, I inked up a scrap piece of cardstock with more gold ink. I let the ink dry and then trimmed two narrow strips with my paper trimmer.

I wish I had remembered to take a photo of the finished piece before I cut it into two pieces! Next I trimmed it at an angle, then cut each of those pieces to fit my A2 card bases. (FYI, did you know that I almost always have a reel I post on my Instagram that shows a bit of my card making process? Join me over there and you will see the full stenciled piece!)

I used the gorgeous Fall Leaves 3D embossing folder to emboss two pieces of A2 sized cardstock. Then I used Bee Creative glue to adhere them to the card bases.

Next I adhered the stenciled pieces to each card with glue. I inked up more scrap cardstock with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and trimmed off two narrow strips. As you can see in the photos, I glued the gold and purple strips next to the stenciled pieces.

Again, I inked up more scrap cardstock with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. Then I cut out the shadow layers of the Bitty Buzzwords: Fall Honey Cuts from the inked piece. I die cut the sentiment layers three times each from white cardstock and adhered the layers with glue.

The sub-sentiment of “for your friendship” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Fall stamp set is stamped with Seedless Preserves. I stamped another sentiment to go with Thankful that’s in the Mini Messages stamp set. I was happy to find that both sentiments could be die cut with the Mini Messages dies! Both sentiments are popped up with foam tape. Tip: I used my scissors to trim pieces of foam tape to fit as needed. Makes it so easy to get the fun dimension!

I do enjoy getting two cards in one session! The Autumn Delight stencil set would look beautiful in colors of any season too! I hope you’ve enjoyed these cards and have found some inspiration too! Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Love how you put these colours together. Unfortunately, when I tried it the stencils didn’t line up so the images were rather askew. I used a stencil mat so everything was tucked into a corner but things still didn’t line up. Did you have to line yours up by hand or did you use a stencil mat too?

      Thank you! I do line up each stencil individually and do not use a stencil mat with these stencils. I hope that helps! Thank you for stopping by!
