Saying Sorry with Stencils

Hiya - I'm over on the So Suzy Stamps blog today playing with my new Clarity Brushes and stencils.


Soooo easy to use. I created my ombre effect with Hero Arts Soft Vanilla, Simon Says Stamp Duckling, and Hero Arts Butter Bar. When I was happy with the effect, I used the Butter Bar again to stamp the I'm Sorry... sentiment from So Suzy.

Since I started with a piece of 6"x6" Neenah Solar White cardstock, the extra white space was bothering me. My solution was to use the straight edge from the Pretty Pink Post Stitched Borders 2 set to remove them and make a fun angled strip for the front of my card.


I made my card base from some textured navy scrapbook paper, cut down to 6x12 and scored to make a top-folding 6x6 card. Then the inside...oh the inside...


Geeze I love that stamp. Bahahahahahaha! I stamped it in Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy to pull in the card base color, then edged it with Blueprint Distress Stain and finished it off with some dots of Buttercup Liquid Pearl to tie in the yellow on the front.


Hard to believe that January is (finally) almost over. There is some crazy fun stuff coming in February, let me tell you...be sure to check out what's left on my Destash Page and subscribe to the blog so you don't miss any of the fun.

Happy Crafting!
