Make It Monday ~ Reverse Stenciling

Boy does Betsy come up with unique ways to use stamps and stencils!
Today the MIM is about doing a reverse stencil on your card.  You can go HERE to watch Betsy's video!
I had my own stencil made from the Happy hexagon Cover Plate...only some of the hexagons did not cut out, but I thought that would look good and add some extra interest to the background.  I brayed on Spring Rain and Blueberry Sky.  and I added a strip of blueberry sky card stock at the top.
I die cut the word two times and added glossy accent on top.

stamps & dies: Bold Blossom, Big Hug

Thanks for stopping by friends!!

Heart Hugs, friends!

  4. You my dear are a fast stamper! You never cease to amaze me with how fast you can create such beautiful cards. I on the other hand, can stare at a card for an entire day at times and still not love it! I love your background and your pop of shine on your sentiment! Super job and I will have to check out that video and challenge! Thanks for inspiring!
