Hey everyone! I'm popping in to share three cards that I made using the Mix & Match Circle stencil from the brand new Hello Beautiful Release. You can shop the release right here (affiliate link used). The first card is my favorite. I wanted to create a soft, dreamy background so I pulled out distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Speckled Egg. I taped down my piece of white cardstock, taped the stencil on top and began my inking with the Spun Sugar in one area. I moved to Bundled Sage and made sure to overlap some of the Bundled Sage on to the Spun Sugar circles. I finished with Speckled Egg and then did some additional blendings of the other colors. I die cut the panel with a Spellbinders Essentials die and adhered the panel to a white cardstock base. The sentiment is the Hello Crafty Friend die from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut the shadow from vellum, the words from white cardstock (3 times) and then adhered everything. I adhered the sentiment to the card base along with some Rainbow Fish embellishments from Trinity Stamps. (Sorry the photo is so washed out!)
For the second card I used silver embossing paste on a piece of light aqua cardstock. After the piece dried I die cut it with circle dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Hexagon Greetings in Delicata Silver Shimmer in on the same aqua cardstock and die cut it with the Hexagon die. I arranged the circles and the hexagon greeting on a white cardstock panel and adhered that to a light gray cardstock base. I finished off the card with some matte silver sequins that my dear friend Greta sent me recently.
