I cannot believe that a whole month has gone by as a guest designer for SugarPea Designs. It has been such a joy to work with this company!
You know by now that I have long sung the praises of stencils. I love them! They are such an economical addition to your craft room and they can do so much to add texture and detail to your projects. Today, I used the Leaf Canopy Stencil in the traditional way. I put the stencil down on Bristol Smooth paper and brushed on Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn.
Not sure how you feel about it, but one of the happiest moments in crafting for me is pulling away the stencil. Kind of like a big reveal! The detail of this stencil really makes for a pretty base so I decided to let it be the star. I chose the SugarCut Grateful Die as my sentiment. I inked up a scrap of the Bristol Smooth with the same colors in a gradient and then cut it out with the die. To get a bit more dimension, I cut the word three more times from green card stock and the layered them all together to attach to the card.
SugarPea Designs has lots of pretty stencils! Again, please remember with the stock of so many of these companies that they are limited by their own supply chains and access to warehouses. Shop with them and be patient as they work to get their beautiful products to you. It is worth the wait to support such fantastic people! Thanks so much for stopping in today. So glad to see you!
