Pink and Yellow Layered Dahlia Thanks...Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #257~Make Your Mark


Hope you're having a wonderful week! I am...my mom's visiting! Yayyyy!

Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #257~Make Your Mark.  For this challenge, bring out you pencils, markers, stencils and sponges, paints...essentially, anything that 'makes a mark.

Two cards from me today, both using the fabulous Layered Dahlia stencil from Altenew., paired with the new Thanks die from MFT.

Here's one posing for its close-up; the letters cut out separately so for this card, I stacked them three high...

The second sees the letters cut and backed with black. I admit I had a 'moment' of 'oh noooo' when I started rolling the panels into my Big Shot, as the stenciling has such impact (gotta love when products have impressive results easily achieved), but...I think the big sentiment works okay. Hope you think so, too!

Okay, I'm off for some more mom-and-daughter time. We might go for ice cream later, especially since the forecast is for the high 80s today...

Looking forward to seeing your designs in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping in; your visit brightened my day!
