November 2022 Release

Hi friends! Cards, cards and more cards all made with the amazing November 2022 release from:
I am on the design team for A Colorful Life Designs and feel blessed to be able to work with these wonderfully designed stencils. I made 18 cards with the release. I usually make more than one card with each stencil - either because I am trying different techniques, different colors or it is a large stencil that I can cut in half for 2 cards.
Here is the bundle to all the November stencils if you can't decide which ones you like best:
This beauty is called Pile of Presents. I used Ranger Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Candied Apple to create the background. The stamp set is from Pigment Craft Co. called A Little Gift.
The next two cards are made with the Falling Flakes Stencil with White Pigment Ink and red cardstock. The Merry & Bright Die is retired from My Favorite Things and makes for a really easy shaker card. 
The car stamp is from Spellbinders called Vintage Holidays. One of my favorite sets ever!
These next 2 sets started with the same paper: I inked with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink, in my opinion the best dark dark black ink available, onto the Right at Home Gingham Background stamp set (retired) and then stamped onto red cardstock. For this card, I used the gorgeous Starlight Stencil with White Pigment Ink and Ranger Ink Stickles Moon Dust over the top. I am not sure where the Joy die comes from and I lost part of it during all this crafting!
This one has the same gingham background, but with the Dotted Flakes Stencil. This was created with Altenew's Embossing Paste and glitter sprinkled on it while still wet. The cutie comes from Hero Arts Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Cut set (retired).
Here we have the Candy Canes Stencil...I had so many ideas for this one, but they will have to wait until another day! The image and sentiment come from Simon Says Stamp Gift of Christmas set.
The sentiment is from a retired set from Concord and 9th called Yuletide Ornament.
Now the next 2 are my "kitchen sink" card. I used all kinds of Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolor Powders on Vicki Boutin Foundation Mixed Media Paper. Of course, I used Pixie Spray first on the back of the stencil.
The images come from Impression Obsession Skier & Snowboarder which I mounted onto vellum paper with a snow hill cut out with a die from my stash.
This is a fun fun stencil called Christmas Deer Stencil: I used Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Ranger's Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Rustic Wilderness and Vintage Photo. The raccoon was from my stash from years ago. Nice to use up some older items. I put the "Happy Winter" sign in his hands.
This is my favorite from the release! It is called Layered Bird Trees Stencil - a 3 piece stencil set.
Why is this my favorite? It reminds me of high-end paper...I just love it. I used Ranger Distress Inks: Cracked Pistachio, Vintage Photo, Rustic Wilderness, Twisted Citron, Candied Apple and Aged Mahogany. Clean and Simple, but colorful!
Here our next one is really beautiful in real life. It is called Christmas Candles Stencil and with a little link blending you have a beauty!
Here is another good one and perfect for birthdays, as well! It is called Presents Stencil and I gave it a good coat of Distress Ink Candied Apple all over. I wanted that Christmas vibe. The little peeking elves and sentiment come from Hero Arts Hero Greetings Christmas Gift Shop.  Quick and easy!
Last but not least is All The Stars Stencil. I have a separate blog post highlighting this stencil here. My camera didn't pick up the really pretty green color but this one has gorgeous color! More Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolor Powders.
Most of these stencils are 6" X 6" and I generally cut my paper that size, too and work with the full size. Once I cut it what do you do with the side piece left? I've made a few bookmarks which I enjoy using in my cookbooks, as well as, library books.
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas designs with the November Release from A Colorful Life Designs. This is a small business, woman owned, out of Texas which I am happy to support! AnitaFan10 will get you 10% off your entire purchase (excluding bundles). Happy Creating!
