For today’s blog hop I’ve created a simple pastel card using the newly released Ombré Stripes Stencil.

I used a masking technique to cover half of the card and I started by applying Blush, Hazelnut and Mountain Mist Crisp Dye Inks with a sponge dauber over the stencil. Then I repeated the sponging at the other side to create a chevron pattern.

thank you


For the sentiment I used Fine Alphabet Die Set and white cardstock covered with Gold String Washi Tape. I die cut the sentiment three times and stacked the letters together for a dimension.

thank you



That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Svitlana Shayevich.

Here is the full line up for the blog hop today.


Thanks for stopping by today!
