Heartfelt Thanks

Happy April to everyone! Hope your enjoying the Beautiful Spring Weather.  I decided this month to make something a little clean and simple. I started off with a stencil that I had purchased from Stamplorations called Rows of Hearts. I took a piece of SU Whisper White card stock and laid my stencil down and started sponging with SU crumb cake ink  and then I decided to add another layer with the SU Baked Brown Sugar ink. After I achieved my desired effect. I applied by stenciled layer to a piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock and then to my Whisper White Card base.

For my sentiment,  I cut out one 2″ circle in Whisper White and then added my Sentiment which is from Happy Little Stampers stamp set called Simply Said. I stamped my sentiment in my versa mark and then added SU Copper embossing powder to it. After heat setting it, I then went on a search for a Heart die that I thought would match what I was looking for. I found my Simon Says Stamp Simply sketched heart die. I used Baked Brown Sugar card stock for my heart. I popped my stitched circle with the sentiment and the heart die with stampin dimensionals to pop them up.

Let me know how much you like to use stencils and what is your favorite one in the comment sections below.

Think Happy for CAS Card Challenge

I just received a package in the mail with new stamps and stencils. Of course, I was so excited that I had to find a reason (ha ha) to use them right away. I decided to enter into the Anything CAS Goes with the optional color twist: Spring Green.

I have used several different items and brands in this card. They are as follows: Stampin’ Up cardstock in Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Vanilla and DSP, Stamplorations Happy Sunflower Stamp and Confetti Circles Stencil, Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms Dies, Ranger Distressed Inks, Stampin’ Up Hello Honey ink, Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen, MFT Washi Tape Dies, Stampin Dimensionals, Rhinestones and Tombow Glue.
