Simon Says Stamp - LOVE ALWAYS Card

Hello Lovelies! Gosh February flew by and I am just getting to my last Animal Print stenciling Card from the Hugs and Kisses releases. I've got another stenciling trick where we will introduce texture to our card.

As mentioned in the other posts in this series, the Kisses release gave us a trio of affordable animal print stencils that I developed a big ol' crush on! Today, we'll lay down color and give a leopard print a little dimension with some Tim Holtz Ranger Translucent Distress Grit Paste.

Here's a closer look at today's key supplies:

Not really, but a little leopard accent never hurts!

Starting with our Khaki Cardstock, we will blend Mocha and Cappucino Pawsitively Saturated Inks to create depth and gradients in our Leopard pattern.




Stenciled Background




I wish the pic could show the texture even better, its so fun and perfect for this print!

The red heart and the gumdrop heart add a little lift to this "chocolatey" palette!

The champagne cardstock adds a little glamour to this sweet card...

I hope that if you aren't already exploring pastes and potions (LOL), this gives you a nudge to try.


I made this card initially for Valentine's Day, but this is the kind of card that can be shared at any time of year!

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!
