Feminine Fridays Week #5

Did any of you notice that Regina and I used the same stamp set, Just Believe, in the last two Friday posts?? It wasn't planned, it just happened.  Sooooo, My Stampin' Sista, your mission, if you choose to accept it is to use a stencil next week :)  Good Luck! 

Received a box of new items from the new mini going live on September 1st so I thought I would try something with the new Decor Stencil - Vintage Frames.  You'll have to wait to see the full stencil until then but if you already have your mini catalog check it out on page 22.

This stencil is quite large, 8 1/4 x 8 1/4, with 3 different designs.  To ensure that the stencil did not move when I sponged Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink I taped it down with painters tape. It held it perfectly in place. I also made sure my Crumb Cake base was straight by using a ruler. I ran the Sizzlit Little Leaves through the Big Shot twice with Pear Pizzazz. Then ran the Embosslit Flower Burst with Cherry Cobbler. Adhered those three pieces in the middle of the frame. Carefully added little dots of White Shimmer Paint using the smallest tip of the Stylus to give it a little sparkle. The last thing I did to the front was stamp the Hello from Pendant Park. My hand moved slightly when I had the stamp down on the paper and it came out a little blotchy...URGHH. Why is it that this seems to happen only on the last step??

On the inside I added the butterfly from Dreams Du Jour in Cherry Cobbler and Pear Pizzazz. There you have it, this week's card. And, I used all current stamp sets! That has to be one for the books!!

See ya next week!
