    Really like the Let’s Have A Party card! Too bad there’s no way to make the strings three dimensional without interfering with the sentiment.

    Such pretty cards. I really like the new stencils in the collection. I love the trellis and agree with you that the cloud stencil produces very natural looking clouds. Especially like the card you made with the trellis stencil–colors are wonderful.

    Great cards! I really like the “HI” card and the floral one as well. And I see you’re using the new MISTI!! Thanks for spotlighting these stencils. I’m considering the mountain one … so unique. Been reading/hearing that covid is on the rise again in Greece(??). Hope you’re staying safe and healthy.

    Thank you for the tutorial. I have speckled egg too. I particularly paid attention to the colors you were using with them. Loved all the cards but really liked the hi card. I would have never thought to mask and use the letters to spell out hi. Thanks for the inspiration.
