Stencil Sunday April 23

      Hi! I’m here with a quick post for today’s STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday.

This is also a reminder that you have a few days to play along with this month’s Mixed Media Challenge.

I have a tag to share with you today. To make this tag, I used an ARTplorations stencil, tinted embossing pastes, inks, watercolor paints, twine, a die cut sentiment and some rhinestones.


   I cut a tag using the CUTplorations Luggage Tags Nesting Dies.


I have a discount code for you!

Shery, of STAMPlorations, has generously given me a code to share with you.

I started making my tag by stamping the bird from STAMPlorations Trendy Birds 2, carefully fussy cutting the image and inking it up the stamp with a variety of colors.


Then, I used the ARTplorations stencil Retro Circles.



I used the CUTplorations Love Word Die.



Thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop over and check out my Design Teammates’ super creations!

Grace & Peace,
