Kissing with a Stencil

pinkhugskissesheartsthumbnailOh my! That sounds a little strange :0)  Don’t get too worried, it is not as weird as you might think (ha, ha). It is a simple stamping technique used to add texture and interest to a plain image.  It is a three step process:

Step 1: Ink up a plain, solid stamp. I used a heart shaped stamp by Hero Arts.

Step 2: Stamp it on a stencil that is a pattern. I used a Kaisercraft stencil.

Step 3: Stamp onto another piece of paper to see the beautiful texture created by the stencil.

Quick and Easy Easter Card



I’m so glad you found me today! Welcome to my blog. I made these cards with just a few simple supplies:  paper, cardstock, stickers, border punch and adhesive. There was only 1 optional thing, a greeting stamp for the inside greeting. I trimmed the pattern paper to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and the solid paper about 3.75″. You can totally eyeball the solid paper! Then I adhered them to my card base with double sided adhesive. Finally, I placed some puffy stickers on the front and I was good to go. You can watch the process on the YouTube video below.
