Oodles of Hellos to you! I have been busy making cards…yes again, or should I say STILL. 🙂 I am looking forward to finishing up with all my recent card orders so I can concentrate on scrapbooking. I haven’t been able to make page layouts in quite a while and I am missing it.
But I digress… Today I have a couple of Thank You cards that I made using the CTMH Choose Happy Stamp of the Month set for March, and one of the cards is being entered into a stencil challenge. I circle punched an index card with three size circles and then laid a Tim Holtz circle stencil over the holes and randomly stenciled the tiny holes into the large punched holes to get this effect:
This was a lot of fun to do. I then laid the punched out circles over the stenciled areas so I could add TH Distress Ink in Peeled Paint in the background. The distress colors I used for the stenciled areas were; Evergreen Bough, Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass. The Thanks Oodles frame was colored with the ShinHan alcohol markers in the following colors; Peacock, Turquoise and Leaf Green. These colors are so pretty together, and I just LOVE the frames in this stamp set, it is so whimsical. The stamp set is only available through the end of March.
The colors used on the gift tag were; Tender Pink, Cherry Pink, Peony Purple and Lavender. These colors pack a lot of punch!
