CAS Stencil April 2020 Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Cathy!

Message from Cathy
Hi everyone, gilding flakes come in a gorgeous array of colours and can really add shimmer and shine! You can apply them with double sided adhesive tape, tacky when dry gel or embossing powder, or glue that is tacky when dry. Just remember to keep fans off and no heavy breathing!

Videos Tutorials:
Gilding Flakes with Stencils by Crafting While Caffeinated (11:25) - using tacky when dry gel medium.

How to apply Gilding Flakes with Duo Stencils by Neat & Tangled (10:48) - using flitter glue applied with a brush (great tip) and spreading tiny amounts of flakes with her fingertips.

Gilding the Funky Foliage by Clarity Stamp (18:31) - flakes through a stencil onto double sided sticky sheet, if you have time it's a good laugh too! Think you'd need a fairly robust stencil too, not a delicate one.

Please follow the challenge rules:
    • Cards only with stenciling, following monthly theme
    • CAS design (clean and simple) - definition on sidebar
    • Include link to challenge on your blog post

    1. Thank you for the fun challenge Cathy and I have loved being your guest designer this month x. Stunning cards, which really have the Wow factor x.

    2. Really gorgeous inspiration from everyone including Mac as GD this month, I don't have any gilding flakes to be able to take part but will pop by to see all the entries x

    3. The gilding looks great on all the DT cards and great to see Mac as the GD, and a wonderful theme for the challenge chosen by Cathy. x

    4. Darn, I missed the deadline, but you can still view my card at

    5. Hi again, could it be that the linky closed too early? The other CAS challenges are not closing until 9 hours from now.
