Hello again. I’m just getting back from a wonderful trip with my hubby and friends. It was a good opportunity to recharge. Now I’m back for and ready to create again.

Friends, I really want to show you that cardmaking doesn’t have to be stressful and doesn’t require a lot of time.

Stencils are a fun, economical way to create amazing backgrounds. I cut down my white panel to 4 x 5¼ inches and added tape to the back. To ensure it didn’t want it moving around while I was coloring. I laid the first layer down and applied Bubble Tea on the crowns with a small blending brush Then I used Blueberry Cheesecake on the dots. I was careful not to overlap the colors. I lined up the second stencil and applied California Love and Picked Raspberry Distress ink.

To add a little more contrast, I cut a piece of Coronation Purple cardstock down to 4¼ x 5½, It added a small border around the stenciled panel.

Finally I chose a sentiment from the the Happy Birthday, Princess stamp set and stamped it with Eclipse Black ink. I cut it out and then popped it up using dimensional foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time – Jackie ❤
