Take Time

If you are looking for my "Grow Your Blog Party Post"..go HERE !!!


Some days I love all the clutter on my cards...
some days I love the clean and simple...
Today is a "clean and simple" day!


I have been taking the stenciling class at "Stenciled"
I love to stencil and thought maybe I could pick up a few tips...
and I have lots of tips

....like this CAS card for Valentines Day

I cut my own stencil for this, simply by punching a heart and using the negative...
The tiny little hearts are a MS stencil picked up last year.
I have to admit, most of my stencils were purchased with 'mixed media" in mind..
So this class, has been a tremendous help in me using them for cards as well,
and a tremendous push for me to even open them up and put them to use!!

I sponged TH distress Worn lipstick on my big heart and Spun Sugar on the little hearts.
I love these two colors together, so soft.


The sentiment I love, it is from Flourishes set "Orchards"....so pretty
"Take Time To Think, Dream, and Wonder"...so true!!
The sentiment was embossed with white EB powder first, then the stenciling was done
on top of that....

I will be back later with the other cards I have done so far in my "stenciled" class.
You can see the first one HERE

I am entering my card in this challenge:

I love the CAS of this! So sweet and pretty. Also, the sequins -- got to get some and use them. They are a very nice substitute for rhinestones and pearls, etc, and don't add bulk to the card.
