I started this card with a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 piece of Neenah Solar White card stock. I stamped the Lawn Fawn Chevron Borders stamp with Memento inks in Bahama Blue, Dandelion and Tangelo alternately on the panel. For the sentiment, I used a sentiment from the Trult Appreciated set from Hero Arts. I stamped it with black pigment ink and clear embossed it. We were allowed to use little bits of black and white so I wanted the sentiment to stand out. To add a little more black and white elements, I added some enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye.

For the card base, I didn’t have those fancy pre-cut clear cards, so I just used thick transparency sheets from Staples and made my own clear card base. I rounded the corners of the main panel and stuck it on the front of the card and I also stuck coordinating pieces white card stock to cover the adhesives.

For a complete list of tools and supplies, please the supply list below.

That’s it for this for this card.

Sending You Buckets of Happy


Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for Day 1 of Online Card Classes. The class is all about stencils and different ways we can use them. For day 1, it was the basic use stencils using sponging and spritzing. To be honest, this was the only way I thought stencils could be used. Of course I was wrong and the next 3 days of classes showed me that.

Here is my card —

Sending You Buckets of Happy


I started this card with some Citrus Yellow card stock from Neenah Creative Collection cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. For the panel, I used panel of Neenah Solar White cut to 5 1/2 by 3 inches. I masked of the center line with some Post It sticky tape. For the background, I used an inexpensive flower stencil I got at Hobby Lobby for less than 3 dollars. It had different sizes of flowers which I used. I sponged the flowers randomly throughout the panel using Memento inks in Rosebud, Tangelo, Dandelion, Bahama Blue and Grape Jelly. For the masked sentiment area, I used the Love This stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I selectively stamped the Sending You Buckets of Love sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black but did not ink the word love. Instead I used happy and placed the it’s gonna be ok” sentiment below. To finish the card, I placed to think strips of Bazzil’s Pansy card stock as a side border which gives the card a finished look.
