You Make Me Smile

I was inspired by a card Catherine Pooler made this morning on a Live with Laurel Beard. She did some ink blending and then added some stenciling over top. There's a new challenge this week at StampNation that also inspired my card.

I die cut a circle from masking paper, added it to a card panel and did some ink blending with Catherine Pooler inks. I used Skylight on top and Seafoam on the bottom. I decided I wanted something brighter so I added some Melon Ice over top of the Seafoam. LOVE these colors together! They make me think of spring and wish it was here already. Next I grabbed the Perfect Vine Stencil from Catherine Pooler, placed that on the card and sponged again with the same inks. I was going to sponge the inside of the circle with the blue on top and green on the bottom but I messed up so I went with it and swtitched them around.

I die cut the word smile from black card stock, added it to some craft foam slightly off set a bit so as to see a little bit of the white. I stamped the words with versamark onto a tiny strip of black card stock and heat set it with white embossing powder. I added it all the card base and then finished it off with a few sequins.

Here's a peek at a few cards the ladies came up with for the challenge to inspire the members at StampNation. I'm heading over there now to check them all out.

Happy Stampin'
