Create a Smile Stamps Challenge Launch Blog Hop


Hi Crafters,
today is an exciting day - the launch of the Create a Smile Challenge! We decided to celebrate with a blog hop so there are a bunch of really great card designers bringing you a project with the word "Favourite". I decided to do a Clean and Simple card (my favourite style) with on of my favourite techniques - stencilling. There is also a €25 gift card up for grabs!

As usual, I made a video tutorial on how to make this fun card. It really is perfect for when you need a last minute card because these ones take me only about 5 minutes to make. I think the best part was getting to try out the new Nuvo drops - you can make your own enamel dots for the fraction of the cost.

The hop is happening both here on our blogs, as well as on Instagram so be sure to following my at @justinehovey. You next stop on the hop is AMY. If you happen to get lost along the way, here is the hop list:

  1. i like the colors and the layout, so me;-) also i am curious about those Nuvo drops, because with other brands I don't seem to get a nice round shape, are these easier to use?

    1. The first time I did it, they were kind of oval. But if I hold the bottle straight up I get nice round enamel dots. I agree that stickles and things never worked well for me, but these work a lot better than the others :)

  2. What a nice quick and easy card! <3
