Card #49 – One layer card with leaves

Today’s card is a one layer card. Using a spare piece of paper, I partially covered the card stock and stenciled the exposed portion with ‘Mini Vineyard’ stencil from The Crafters Workshop®. I then followed it up by adding Fossilized Amber Distress ink to the background and gave the leaves a border with a fine tip Sharpie®. On…

Card #48 – Missing your hugs

For this card, I first die cut a circle and used it as a stencil to ink it with Antique linen distress ink. Then stamped the script with Brushed Corduroy. The sentiment is from Pink & Main®. Lastly, using a hand cut cloud like pattern, I stenciled the the clouds with Salty Ocean Distress ink. Gave the…

Card #47 – Sunflower birthday

Sunflowers are my favorite and I aways enjoy stamping and painting them. Flipping through the pattern paper pad, I came across this print which seemed to go well with the flowers – gave it a ‘farm’ like look. Cut out the brown frame using infinity dies from Hero Arts®. For the banner, I used a wood…

Card #44 – Magical stars

This was never supposed to turn into a card. When I ended up with star shaped stencils while die cutting for the previous card and with all my Distress inks out, I decided to stencil some with inks I rarely use. It went on and I created a piece with many multi-coloured starts overlapping one another. It…

Card #39 – Love the moment

Making a scene using a limited supply of stamps has always been a challenge. I dug through every single stamp set and stencil I purchased and came up with this scene. Though not intentional, the final look reminded me of a view outside a window. The sentiment seemed apt reminding us to see the beauty around…
