Mystic Animals Notecard Set with Tim Holtz and StencilGirl

These mystic animal cards were born of my obsession with Roxanne Coble's stencils (trying to not sound like a fan girl) and always needing some extra cards laying around just in case. I like to make cards in bulk so that I'm never short for any occasion. You could also make a set of 6 and gift them to someone. 

This tutorial for these mystic animal cards are part of a fun blog hop with Tim Holtz and  StencilGirl Products. I love that these cards are a little bit mystical, a little bit whimsical and use Distress Crayons with some killer StencilGirl stencils in a few different ways. This blog hop was my first introduction to Tim Holtz products, even though I have seen them being used all over the art journaling community! I'm just slow at catching on ;) So, if you're tired of reading and just want to get on to the tutorial, then keep scrolling on!

**You can find all the supplies I used to create these cards in the description box of the video tutorial.**

  2. Really fun cards! I like that you showed how to overcome a goof! Thanks

    1. I think a page or project isn't really complete until I make a good on it 😂
