The Card Concept #128 - Love

Happy Valentine's Day Friends,
Playing along with The Card Concept #128 which is an inspiration picture that is perfect for Valentine's Day or sending someone a little love.  My inspiration came from the red and white striped container on the mantle, the hearts, cushions and I used the word Love for my Mixed Media card. I sponged the White Gesso on red card using the striped stencil, love the soft look I achieved and then used embossing paste on the white heart for some texture.  I then die cut the word love and punched out the hearts randomly placing them on the background and heart.  I finished off the inside with the word You and added a few more hearts.

Card: Thick and Thin Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black

CAS Mix Up Challenge - February 2020 - Stencil from Die Cuts - Sending Love

Hi Stampers,
Today's post is for the February CAS Mix Up challenge.  Joanna is our Hostess this month and she is challenging us to make a Stencil from our Die Cuts + Stamping + Your Choice.

I made a Quick and Easy one layer card using the Die Cuts I used for the Stencilling to decorate the inside of the card. I stuck the Die Cut down with the Glue from an old 2 Way Glue Pen.  You let the glue dry on the die cut and then it is repositionable.  I used my Picket Fence Brushes for the sponging to get a nice soft touch.  Finished off with the Sentiment and a Crystal.  Thanks Loll for the die!
