Hello Crafty Friends! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!
Here's my card
I must say that I'm loving layered stencils. Using them, makes it appear that I have some skill when in fact, I'm just adding color with stencils. For this card, I've used Pink Fresh Fancy Floral Print Stencils. Pink Fresh makes it so easy - there are marks on the stencils to show where a A2 card panel fits and the stencils are numbered so you know in what order to proceed, which way is up (LOL!) and how to align the stencil on the panel. I added color with Distress inks - abandoned coral, picked raspberry, mustard seed, mowed lawn, wild honey, bundled sage, all applied with an ink blending tool. I didn't want to cover the pretty panel, so I decided to make an eclipse card, using Birch Design Big Thanks Sugar Script die. I also die cut a piece of white fun foam to add dimension to the die cut.
We'd love for you to join us - you can use a stencil or die or both!
Thanks for stopping by
It's time for a new challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. Here's the sketch for the next two weeks.

Yup, so I'm a bit late with my card. I know that Mother's Day was almost two months ago. Just thought I'd share though. We have a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More

We've been going through a bit of a heat wave here in the Pacific Northwest. People will laugh at us - we've had temperatures around 100 degrees fahrenheit. However, these temperatures are not common and most of us don't have air conditioners. In fact, there have been at least 65 sudden death calls, related to the extreme heat, in my city alone over the last few days. It's even too hot to craft (oh my)!
However, I did manage to make a card for the current challenge at Addicted to CAS
I had my watercolors out and picked up my Simon Says STAMP's Chunky Christmas stamp set. I started out with an A2 panel of 96 lb bristol. I heat embossed the "MERRY" with gold embossing powder and added some distress ink (salty ocean, peacock feathers, twisted citron) with some water and a paint brush. I was trying for a bit of an ombre look. To complete the card, I heat embossed the word "Christmas" from the same stamp set onto a scrap of teal cardstock, again with gold embossing powder. That's my one layer, clean and simple Christmas card.
We'd love to have you join us.
