Hello Spring

Today's card features 2 new stencil releases this month from A Colorful Life Designs called
I combined them with some fun colours and patterns.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by placing a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and then put the Intersections stencil over just the top half of my cardstock panel.  
  • Next, I inked it up with a few different Distress Oxide inks.  These are the colours I used:  Fossilized Amber, Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry.
  • I lifted the stencil off and repositioned it across the bottom part of my cardstock and inked again with the same colours as mentioned above.
  • I took another piece of white cardstock and inked a portion of the Rotating Rings stencil.  Again, I used the same colours as mentioned above.  I used a circle die and cut that out.
  • I die cut the sentiment from some more white cardstock 3 times and inked the top one to match the background.
  • I glued the stenciled card front onto a piece of pink and then onto an A2 card base.
  • I used some foam tape to add the circle over the middle of my card front and glued the sentiment onto that.

Here are the stencils I used:

Another wonderful pairing of stencils and some beautiful bright colours used with them Karen. The stripes make a great background, and the central piece with the sentiment on reminds me of one of those children's lollies. x
