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.

Our awesome sponsor for this challenge is:

Prize: Winner’s choice of stamp

I hope you will join our challenge. Remember to use a die cut on your project. You can check out all the other amazing design team posts at Cut It Up.
