Cut It Up Challenge #251 - Any Animal or Insect

Hello crafters! I hope you are having a good week. This week sure flew by for me. I am going to tackle cleaning up my craft room this weekend. Right now, it looks like a hurricane went through there.

This week's Cut It Up Challenge is to create a project using any animal or insect. I had fun making this card.

Birthday Present Stencil: Taylored Expressions
Sentiment and die: Taylored Expressions
Llama Stamp: Taylored Expressions (Cut out on my
Brother Scan N Cut)
Black Mat Die: My Creative Time
Inks: Close to My Heart
Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste

I learned how to do this technique by taking a card class from Taylored Expressions. You first use ink with a blending brush and the stencil. Next you use a palette knife/spatula to spread the glimmer paste over the stencil. Lift the stencil and then I let the card dry fully (I left mine to dry overnight). I love the shimmer of the glimmer paste.

Cut It Up Challenge #249 - Easter and/or Create Your Own Background

Hello crafters! I hope you are all well. I had kind of a rough week. I woke up last Saturday and my whole body ached and I had a slight fever. Of course, the first thing I thought was "I hope I don't have Covid". Since I wanted to make sure, I took a rapid Covid test and thankfully it was negative. Every day I am feeling a bit better so I'm hoping I'll be 100% by this weekend.

Our Cut It Up challenge this week is to make an Easter Project and/or Create your own Background. Our wonderful sponsor, DRS Designs, provided digital files to the design team to use for our projects. I decided to do both parts of the challenge so I used a stencil for my background and made my card into an Easter card.

Digital stamp: DRS Designs
Circle die: Cut on my Cricut Maker
Sentiment s
tamp: Lawn Fawn
Background: Taylored Expression Stencil
Paper: Recollections
Ink: Stampin' Up and Versamark
Embossing powder: Taylored Expressions
