Wonderful Day.

Hi Everyone!

I'm back again with another card featuring my new products from Simon Says Stamp. One of the new items I purchased was this new Moroccan Stencil. This is so much fun to work with. The possibilities of what you can do with them are endless! I can tell that not only am I going to be using this one a whole lot; but I will also be buying additional ones as well. Many of my ideas for what to do with new items or products come from watching you tube videos from Jennifer McGuire, or Kristina Werner, as well as other Simon Says Stamp videos and ones from Splitcoaststampers as well. For this card, I decided to use some distress inks and blend them over the stencil on white paper. I secured the stencil with a bit of washi tape to keep it from moving about and then I used Festive Berries, Evergreen Bough and Dusty Concord distress inks with my blending tools to apply the ink. I also took some Black Soot around the edges of the paper for some more definition. I used the same colors to ink up the edges of the middle panel as well. The card itself is actually embossed with the Geometric Rings embossing folder from Cuttlebug. Unfortunately you can't see it in the picture, so you're just going to have to take my word for it! The sentiment is from Kristina Werner's "Handwritten Greetings" set. Love this set! She actually has two of these sets...I'm going to have to get the other one! I wanted to keep the sentiment simple, because I really wanted the focus to be on that background.
That's all for me today. Have a great day everyone! Until next time....
