STAMPlorations Stencil Blog Hop featuring Sanna Lippert Designs!

Happy Monday and welcome friends!
Today starts part 2 of the

My first card features the Dots 'n Beans ARTploations stencil, along
After sponging a rainbow of inks over the stencil, I added crystal
Stickles to all the dots for some sparkle. I even went over the
word rainbow with my Wink of Stella pen, but with my crack
photography skillz, you can't see that. LOL!

For my second card, I've used the
Barley ARTplorations stencil. I added embossing paste over the stencil
then after removing and cleaning the stencil, I sprinkled on copper
embossing powder and let the paste dry for a few hours. Once dry I heat
embossed the copper powder and sponged some Vintage Photo DI around
the edges and adhered to my card base.
