Stencil Week-Day 2

Hi, crafty friends. This week I’m sharing different ways to use a stencil. I’m sharing another simple way to use a stencil and that is to just trace the pattern… I secured the stencil to a piece of THIS card stock with THIS tape and used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to trace the stencil pattern with different colors. Once the pattern was traced, I used the smallest paintbrush from THIS set, dipped...

Carrot and Peas Tri-Fold Card

Hello. I have a tri-fold card to share using a stamp set from THIS new release… To create a tri fold card, I adhered two 4.25 x 5.5 kraft note cards together after trimming a bit off one flap of each card. When you trim off a tiny bit off one flap, they will fit together nicely. To create the front panel, I die-cut THIS die twice to create a full panel of circles....

I stamped the dog images from the same stamp set and colored...
