Card #2: Tone on Tone

Tone on tone is a fun way to incorporate those really intricate stencils without the card being "too much" I love tone on tone for a subtle look as well as when I want my sentiment to really shine!

In my video tutorial you can check out Tim Holtz's new mini stencils! I got set 3 and 6 to get started1

Card #2 Supply List:

Card #3: Stencil Brushes

Finally a solution to those intricate dies that doesn't involve messy spray adhesive! Clarity stencil brushes are amazing!

How gorgeous is that wink of stella glitter on the bodice of the dress! Don't even get me started on the stamp. The Ton Stamps are amazing!

Card #3 Supply List:

Card #4: Ombré

The ombré look is just so trendy, with hair, inks and cards you can't go wrong. Pick out some similar shades and arrange them from light to dark to make this fun card!

Create a Smile stamps is your place to go for fun, intricate, useful dies. They make great backgrounds and you're supporting a great small company. Shipping is also less than $5!
