Color Block Stencils Birthday

Summer means stamping when I can. When a cold front hits North Carolina and the humidity disappears for a few days, it's time to be outside! The weather has been just wonderful and I took every opportunity to enjoy it. 

Today I created a birthday card which began with an ink blended background. 

 Papertrey Ink came out with a new product called Color Blocked Stencils which I explored for this card, sponging the triangle areas then stamping the chevron pattern over them in darker ink. It's a great way to pare down the layers on a card for mailing and was just plain fun!  Especially if you like ink blending as much as
 I do.
I paired it with some die cut flowers, a bold sentiment, and a few glittery  enamel dots. 

That's all for me today, I have one more card to share with you tomorrow. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit! 

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!
