Favorite Summer Colors

I found a new challenge in which we are to use our favorite summer colors. This is the card I am entering into Laurie's Fabulous Favorites   My favorite colors for summer are pink, yellow and orange along with some light blue and light green. So with that in mind I used a stencil to create this card.


Supplies used:
Paper Trey Ink Mix & Mat Hearts Die
Maker's Movement Stitched Rectangles Nested Essentials Dies
Gina K. Designs Art Stencils Daisy Chain
Gina K. Design Rose Peonies (Sentiment)

I used Gina K. Designs inks to add color to my stencil design using the Life Changing Blending Brushes from Picket Fence Studio. Then I die cut the panel out and placed it onto the heart die frame that was cut from black card stock. The sentiment was stamped on front of the stencil design. Adding this layered panel to a Dusty Rose card base was my next step. I also added some of the same design inside the card.

I have several anniversaries coming up later in the summer so this will be a handy card to have in my supply stash. Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments.

God bless,
Verna

Wow, these colors are fabulous, Verna, and what a CUTE stencil! Beautiful blending. I just received a set of blending brushes, but Beauty Kate brand makeup brushes from Amazon. Fantastic! Made a couple of backgrounds today and love how they work. Now to see how they hold up. You really sold me on them with beautiful cards like this!

Lemonade Thank You

I made a card to enter into the Impression Obsession Challenge-I'll Drink To That! I confess I had no stamp or die by IO that would fit...
