Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday - You are so Amazing


Happy Monday!

It's my turn to issue a challenge for Mix It Up Monday at Stamp TV.

So this week we are using uplifting words!  At our church right now, the message series is called My Big Fat Mouth. Two weeks in and I know our pastor is talking about me!  One thing really struck me for sure - our words can build people up or tear them down.  It is so true.  So this week, let's use our words (and stamps and dies) to encourage.

I used the maple leaf stamp and die from the Stitched Leaves Mini Kit and the sentiment (die and stamp) is from the Boho Flowers Mini Kit.

This is how I made my card:  First I stamped some heat resistant acetate with the maple leaf image and then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Next I die cut the leaf into the center of a single stitched square. I adhered the acetate behind this area so the leaf was centered behind the opening.  I blended three colors of Distress Oxide Inks onto a scrap of white card stock and placed that behind the square.  Finally, I used some fun foam behind the square to lift it up

I added my sentiment and some sequins to finish my card.  I hope this card encourages YOU today!



I'd love for you to join in our fun challenge.  Here is a reminder about the rules:
