You & Me–C4C #240


Hi, everyone! It’s Saturday so it’s Crazy 4 Challenges time! This week Peggy wants us to use stencils. I can do that! If you don’t own any stencils don’t let that put you off, you can easily make one by die cutting  a shape and using it to sponge some ink. Hope to see lots of you playing this week!

My card started with a Grout Gray card stock base. Then, on a piece of Bubblegum card stock, I applied some embossing paste with MPD Graduated Hearts stencil and allowed it to dry. Next, I added some new Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, cut from Steel Gray card stock, Wild Cherry card stock, and Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Romantic Script Background and Steel Gray ink. Then I stamped the sentiment—from Always & Forever Stamp Set with Steel Gray ink on Sweet Tooth card stock, trimmed them down and popped them up on foam. I added an ampersand, cut from Ampersand Die-namics and metallic silver card stock, some enamel dots, and a Wild Cherry card stock heart, cut with Heart STAX Die-namics.

A sentiment from Love Story was stamped on the inside.


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our June Guest Designer, Mary Marsh!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C240.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
