Crafty friends

Hello there. I'm popping in with a very quick post to show this card I created for a crafty friend.

I started by blending CP inks (Limoncello and Samba) through my NBUS Blossom stencil from Create a Smile. The crayon stamp is by Whimsy Stamps, and the sentiment stamp and die are by CAS-ual Fridays. I created my own coloured cardstock using the Samba ink onto a scrap before die cutting and die cut the sentiment again using some black fun foam.

I'm linking up my card at:

SSS Wednesday - No designer paper

Since I have been using my cut-offs for the strip and die cut sentiment, 
I'm also allowed to enter the gates to Pixie's Snippets Playground - #350


  1. Your stencilled background looks beautiful Marianne and makes for a lovely card for your friend.

  2. Your ink blending is so pretty! Thanks for joining the Create A Smile challenge!

  3. I know that if poeple call something "interesting" it has a negative ring to it, but that's really what I think: it's interesting on so many levels, I can't stop looking at it!

  4. Stencils are some of my favorite design elements, always so crisp! Love your warm colors and design, thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  5. So beautiful, love the colors of the stenciled background! Thank you for joining us at Create A Smile challenges :)

  6. Wat een prachtige stencil! Heb je'm toevallig dubbel?😎
    En wat een leuk idee met die creatieve strook, in samenstelling met de
    tekst. En dan het terugkomen van deze prachtige kleuren.
    Mooi gedaan, Mar. Xx Ineke☀️

  10. This is gorgeous, Marianne! There are several interesting tidbits in this short post! First, I didn't know you could blend with the lush CP inks. I assume you smear a bit on a craft mat and then pick it up with your blending tool? Second, cool idea to make sure your pp matches your card colors ... just make your own! Mwah! Happy Easter! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Gorgeous fun card, love the crayon border. EmmaT
