Stencil and Layer Birthday Card

I was inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video, “Custom Stamp Layering”, that I watched over the weekend.

I used a stencil and ink to create the floral pattern. The smaller panel was cut out of the larger panel with a die (and I replaced it with plain white cardstock, so the layers would be supported). I did not use a layer of foam under the smaller panel – I did not want to incur extra postage!

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, die – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

Hang in There Sloth Card

This mini stamp set is another gift from Offspring3. I love the happy sloth!

I blended in using two masks – one to cover the sloth (and keep him un blue!), one that covered the card but left a circle.

Turtle & Co Cards

So, I was procrastinating…I should have been working on my personal Mother’s Day cards. Or finishing up my spring cleaning.

Nope.
