Stipple Stenciling with Distress Inks

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re having a good day so far. Thank you for joining me today! For today’s card, I started with a Vintage Cream card stock (from PTI) and then used a stencil that I picked up from Hobby Lobby a while ago. Stencils are great, because there are so many things you can do with them. For my technique today, I decided to use a few stipple brushes to add the Distress Ink. I used Broken China, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick and Weathered Wood. I wanted to focus to stay on the stenciled design, so I just added a small sentiment from PTI “Words of Comfort” set.

Have a great day and I’ll see you all again soon!

Friends are Treasures

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was relaxing which is always good. Had to take my daughter to a doctor’s appointment today, so I’m a little behind on posting this morning This card that I’m sharing today was created from the scraps that I had left over from the card I posted last week. I decided to keep it pretty simple once again. Honestly, a lot of my cards have been pretty simple lately because I just haven’t had a whole lot of time to spend in my craft room
The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I made the flowers using the same Sizzix flower die that I’ve been using a lot recently.

That is all the time for me today. Have a wonderful afternoon and evening and I will be back again soon.

CAS Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone!

I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Mine is starting at the laundromat since my washing machine broke earlier in the week and in a family of 5, that is just not a good thing. So, I figured I would take advantage of the free wi- fi available in the facility and post this very simple Birthday card I made the other day. I cut the 4 holes using Circle Wafer thin dies from Simon Says Stamp and then cut some additional circles from patterned paper and layered them as shown. I decided that they needed a little bit of bling to them, so I added a little gold gem sticker to each one.
The simple sentiment is from Verve Stamps and I stamped it with High Dive ink from. Simon Says Stamp.

Have a great weekend and I will see you all again soon!
