Gear up for a burst of colorful inspiration! Join Lauren Bergold in celebrating the arrival of the latest Archival Inks & Stickles as she crafts a vibrant Thank You Card.

Instructions 

The emboss/resist technique is one of my favorites, but this is the first time I've tried stenciling ON TOP... it won't be the last, however, because I'm hooked on the combination of bright color with soft texture!

Step 3: Use the magnets from Wendy Vecchi's MAKE ART Stay-tion to secure Simon Hurley's The Loo! stencil firmly on top of embossed panel. Use a Mini Ink Blending Tool and Domed Foam to apply one Archival Ink color to each vertical row of tiles, in the following order: Cayenne, Wine Cellar, Aubergine, Mountain Lake and Beach Cruiser. DO NOT wipe the excess ink from the embossed pattern.

Step 4: Trim the embossed panel to 4.5 x 5.5" saving the offcut for later. Apply coordinating colors of Stickles Glitter Glue to the small flowers between each set of embossed tiles on the large panel. Set aside on a flat surface and allow to dry completely.

Step 5: Using the Letter It Thank You Clear Stamp Set, stamp "Thanks" in Graphite Ink on white cardstock and allow to dry for a few seconds before repositioning the stamp just slightly to the left, and stamping a second time in Beach Cruiser Archival. Cut out neatly around the word using scissors. On a separate scrap of cardstock, stamp "So Much" in Graphite, then trim into a neat strip measuring approximately 5/8 x 2".
