You Are Here

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week!


I'm back with another Guest Designer card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. :)


This week's challenge is Stencil-It. The DT and I are using stencils from The Crafter's Workshop, but you can use whatever stencils you have for the challenge.

Here's my card:

You Are Here

I mixed three reinkers into my white Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste. Then, I simply spread the three colors (light to dark seemed to work the best) over the You Are Here stencil. I layered the panel over some papers from the Plus One (still a fave!) and Highline collections.

I almost stamped a sentiment underneath, but decided I could stamp the inside. I was thinking maybe "thank you." Hmmm...what sentiment would you use with the front?

Here's a close-up:
