MTTC #514 Stenciling Theme DT project for 11 August 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!! My heart's so happy with the results of this heart-themed card! YEA! A several years old varied hearts stencil sheet has been traced onto kraft paper. And the cardstock print base is one I've been hoarding in my stash since about 2010!!!

WHAT: My Time To Craft challenge blog's #514 stenciling theme

WHEN: August 11-24, 2023


1. print cardstock base is a very old hoarded stash item since approx. 2010!!! I don't remember the vendor.

2. varied heart stencil sheet = Dollar Tree

3. stencil sheet laid on a kraft paper section; with about 6 marker colors applied and then outlined with black permanent marker; marker colors chosen that were similar to the printed cardstock's colors

4. text box sentiment was one of many different expressions typed on a Google document that was printed on kraft paper; I applied yellow colored pencil on top to offer contrast from the stenciled kraft paper underneath it;

**Note: in July and August, I've been in the process of reducing my DT commitments from 12 down to 8 since I'll be returning to teaching. I'm retaining those that I own, co-own, or manage. These are: MTTC, MTTCC, AACB, CBCB, TFATU, HQCB, FQCB, and FQGS.


  1. A wonderful use of the stencil Becca, and you have made an eye catching card with the varied shapes and colours

  2. What fun stenciling! Great colors and background paper...So, you don't remember the vendor of the paper from 13 years ago? hahaha That made me chuckle! Thanks for sharing this heart-filled card with us at Path of Positivity! ~Katrina

    1. Katrina: I know! I amuse myself at times, too! And the fact that the cardstock has survived a house move 7 summers ago is even more surprising; no molding either! Thanks for the blog visit!

  3. I love how you've played with the stencil and the colours. A fabulous card. Hugs, María.

  4. Very colorful & creative card! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our STENCIL FUN challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.
