Cards Inspiration with Susie!

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today and I am playing along with the Anything Goes Challenge this month!

One of my favorite things about Quick Quotes is that they create coordinating inks and embellishments for their collections. Today I pulled out my stencils and created these fun and easy mixed media cards using PowderPuff Chalking Inks and Die Cut Stickers.

I started by adhering a stencil onto white cardstock with washi tape and selected some coordinating inks:

I used a sponge to apply Peach Tree ink through the stencil.

I changed out the stencil and used a darker ink, Sunset, to add another layer.

Here's a peek at the layered image.  Pretty cool, right?

All it needed to finish things off is a Die Cut Sticker.  I actually popped it up with some chipboard before adhering it to the card.

For the next card I chose SeaBrook and Aqua. I created the main image with the darker Aqua and then lightly sponged in Seabrook in the background.

I inked in some details using a black pen before adding another perfect sentiment with a Die Cut Sticker.

For the final card I used Baby Blue, Desert Sun and Lipstick.  I also used 3 or 4 stencils to get all of the imagery I needed.

I love the sentiment on this sticker: "Live like there is no midnight. ~ Cinderella"
