Bokeh Hearty Leafy Hugs

Hi! I’m excited to share this card with you today!

Here’s a photo to give you an idea of how I used a homemade leaf stencil (made with a Papertrey Ink Grateful Leaf Die) to achieve the hearty bokeh effect.img_3252edited

Did you know that hugs truly are good for your health? Look it up!

I removed the stencil/mask and added some yellow hearts around the edges of the leaf.

I added 1 paper and 1 vellum leaf outline and hugs (CUTplorations) die cut.

I offset the die cuts so that the stem and an outline of the leaf would show.

Love you so birdy much

Hi! I’m here today with a quick and fun card. I inked up some NBUS (So Tweet) that I won from W&W at the Fall Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop! This is such a cute set. I know that you’re going to love it.

So many cute images to play with! My daughters are all waiting to have a turn with these.

My thanks to Winnie & Walter and Amy & the team at the CLBH.

I did some masking and used my Stampin’ Write markers to color ink the stamped images.img_3241edited

My design was inspired by CTS #195 and the theme was inspired by CASology’s Week 221, Cue Word: Cure.
