Stencils @ JUGS!


Hello Friends, Maria over at Just Us Girls has a very easy word for us this week.  The word is Stencils. I don’t know about you, but I have a slew of them and am always looking to buy more.  This sun beam stencil I have used on my card today is a must have if you ask me!  Mine happens to be from My Favorite Things however, there are many different variations of them out there. You should try and get one too. I decided to ink mine up on watercolor paper. The rest of my card was made with SU’s new set Lift Me Up.  I just adore this hot air balloon die. What is so cool about this stamp and die cut set is that it has so many pieces. Just take a look at it below! I love the fact that the background of the ballon can be made with so many different shades of paper and cut out individually.  I did just that on my card above.  Thanks for coming by today and checking in with me!  It makes my day when you visit.  Please come by and visit Just Us Girls this week and see what my talented team and guest Nancy have done, and while you are there….join us!  I have a good stampin’ friend that is battling bone cancer and I hope this cheers her up a bit.

Take care, Nanc’
