Stencil Sunday – March 26, 2017 – Big Bloom Tag

I have a tag to share with you today.

To make this tag, I used the ARTplorations stencil Big Bloom Factory LARGE. This stencil/mask measures approximately 8 inches wide by 10 3/16 inches tall.

CAS Coffee & Friends

Hi! I’m here with a quick post. I have a CAS coffee themed card to share with you.  

I used this Uniko Stamp set that I won during the Winter CLBH.

I also have the I Love Tea set, but my household goods just got packed up and crated. So, I won’t have access to that for 3-5 months. It’s a super cute set, though. Check it out!
