Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at
This week challenge #269 is....
(Stencils & Dies Only! No Stamping!)
Here is the project that I created for this challenge:
I die cut my white card layer with a stitched rectangle die. I took a bit of embossing paste and mixed it with some Cracked Pistachio Distress ink and got this really light "minty" color. I used a chevron stencil and spread my embossing paste over the top. Once I had the thickness I wanted, I put it aside and let it dry a little while I worked on the other elements of the card. I die cut my ''hello" four times and then layered them on top of each other so that it had the thickness of a light chipboard. I added some wink of stella for a little bit of shimmer on my word. I created an ombre effect onto some scrap white paper using the Cracked Pistachio ink and then cut out a strip to place my greeting onto. I added a bit of crochet thread and mounted it to a lace tag. I created a Kraft card base and then started building up my card, popping the greeting layer up with some foam tape. I finished off my card with a few enamel dots.
Neglected items from my stash that I used are:
--Embossing paste! I love it but don't use it nearly enough
--Stencil. I bought this particular stencil the beginning of Summer and never used it until this challenge.
