There are new goodies in the house! I got the new catty today along with a couple of new stamp sets, and a bundle of the new color card stock and ink pads. I've only had time to look through the catalog once but so far, I'm liking it!! I'm sending one of the stamp sets back - I ordered the wrong Hostess sneak peek but tomorrow I'll be using the other stamp set (Because I Care) and I'll be sharing.
For now though, I made a card using Design Elements stencils that I got last week and just got around to opening them tonight! I love them! You get three stencils in the pack for $9.95 - very reasonable I think. To see some of the other stencils, click HERE.
Here's my card and my "how-to's" -
I temporarily taped the stencil to my Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged Crumb Cake (the old Kraft - now in an ink pad) over the fleur stencil. Then without moving the stencil, I stamped some of the images from the Priceless stamp set over the fleur in Early Espresso (a very dark brown). I dyed my taffeta white ribbon Early Espresso with a sponge dauber. Then I stamped "wonderful" from Warm Words on the bottom. I layered the Vanilla piece onto a piece of Early Espresso. I stamped the swirl from Priceless on my Crumb Cake card. I love it!!
