Today I have a card using something unexpected from this month's April release. I love when you can use what you have in your stash for more than one purpose. First off, here is my card...
I stenciled the background and then added in a vellum tag using Tag Sale #3, stamped with a sentiment from Wet Paint. I added in a little wooden button to finish it off.
Here is how I made it...
I was making a card using these new Stenciled Alpabet Block Dies.
When I saw the perfect cut out, I instantly thought STENCIL. :)
So I centered it on a piece of white card stock and distress inked away.
See that green Frog Tape? I was watching one of Jennifer McGuires videos and saw her using it. I thought to myself...I must pick some of that up. Later that evening, I was grabbing a paint brush out of our paint supply box in the garage (we are putting in a bathroom in the basement and I am currently painting) and what do I see there? A full huge roll of green frog tape. I had it already and didn't know it!
So anyway, don't cut that die apart when you get it! It makes a fun stencil. If you cut it out using Papertrey's thick 110lb paper, the stencil stays nice and durable, too.
Thanks for stopping in today! Hope you have a great Wednesday!
