{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Combines Her 3 Favorite Things

Hi, Cornelia here today, stenciling, die cutting and stamping - my three favorite things combined!

Lets get started:

I used A Bloom and 3 Buds stencil and sponged.

Added the butterflies from Artful Flutters.

Die cut the BIRTHDAY.

Make sure to keep all those little pieces  - you have to glue them back in.

I like to use a tweezers for those tiny things. Also, if you put the die cut word back in, you'll know exactly where to put those pieces.

And that's how it looked after I mounted it onto blue card stock.

Stamped the WISHES from Sentiment Builders: Love. Added some sequins for a bit of sparkle.

My STAMPlorations supplies:

  1. Pretty flower.
    The blue sentiment on the green
    leaves really mimics the
    flower and leaves above.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. Excellent choice of colours for a vibrant look!

  3. Beautiful! Love all of the stamps and colors!

  4. Beautiful colors on your pretty card! My favorites too... stenciling, die cutting and stamping! :)

  5. Love the colours you've used. Great techniques and such an eye catching card x

    LOVE the colours and design!!!
    I confess, I need to practice with my stencils & distress inks MORE, can't wait to give this a try :)
