For my sis...

So my sister says this all the time.  She has asked me....when are you going to make me a card saying you are the  Steph?  Here it is....


 So yesterday I showed you that stenciled card?  Well it was made after this card.  I used the new Stenciled Alpha Black Dies to spell it out.  I added in the "you are the" from PTI's Fresh Alphabet and then added a little Grunge Me in the background.  (Supplies all list below) 


I attached each letter with s little Tombow Mono Liquid glue...a must have...and they aren't going anywhere!

We are out of school today.  Trying to find something to do other than stay in the house.  So we are off!  Hope you have a great day!

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!

Confetti Crush...


We have a fantastic new sponsor, Reverse Confetti, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Confetti Crush!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

I filled this little glassine back full of stars after heat embossing the sentiment from Inner Rock Star on the front.  I cut the top off and sealed it to the back with glue.  I added it to the card front layering it on top of some So Stripey stripes and some black Copic mist.  

The Curtain Call is over the moon that the owner of Reverse Confetti, Jen del Muro, is joining us today for the Confetti Crush challenge.
