Greetings all!! I have been down for the count with a horrible head cold that I got last week. I thought it was allergies at first (and who knows maybe it is) but it sure just feels like a bad head cold. I finally felt good enough to sit down and create. Today’s card is for both the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge featuring Stencils and also for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group Challenge – Stencil it! I mean, seriously, how could I pass this up!?
I’m using the beautiful Carolyn Stencil from Simon Says Stamp. I’m ink blending Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed Distress Ink onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock. Once I remove the stencil, I’ll lightly go back over all the colors to soften it up.
I diecut the word Hello from the Happy Greetings die set with black cardstock and attached to my card panel with some Gina K Connect Glue.
I stamped this fun sentiment onto a white strip of cardstock using the Simple Sentiments stamp set.
For a little added dimension, I added these gorgeous Rose Gold Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh. I was a little nervous how’d they look with the colors but I love it! I also added some Nuvo Shimmer to the Hello and topped it off with some Crystal Glaze.
Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the Flickr Group for chances to win a gift certificate. There is still time left to play!
Hi Mindy! Good to see you are feeling better and were able to take part in the challenge for this week because the design is fabulous. The colors you chose for the stencil are a beautiful combination, and a black sentiment with heat embossed letters ties the whole design beautifully! The photography is remarkable as well. Thank you so much for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. xx Ankita
