After a month or so of not being able to squeeze in stamping time, I made 7 cards yesterday! I’m still in shock! I’ll spread them out a bit over the week, but all of them are for challenges, so I’d like to post to make the deadlines.
This card is probably my favorite of the whole bunch!
I created this card for two challenges. First, a “trend” challenge at SplitCoast to use stencils – Clean & Simple #239.
I don’t have any stencils, so I made one. I used a die to cut heavy plastic; I chose a die that I figured I’d like to use over and over as a stencil.
Once I cut the stencil, I knew I wanted to use it to make a honeycomb background using spritzing.
Of course next I had to figure out a layout. I found a perfect Fall-to-Layout sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping (#256).
I didn’t have a sentiment that was big an bold enough to accomplish what I had in mind, but thankfully it was easy to do with dies.
There is a tiny square gem in the crown – oh and I painted the crown with H2Os to give it some sparkle and shine.
Thanks for taking a peek!
