So the cue this month is "Stencils "

I don't use many stencils, usually, so I was excited to get Distress Oxide inky for this month, when

 lo, and behold, my SSS Kit of the month came in...can you say, inspiration!!

In this months Simon Says Stamp kit is the beautiful sunburst stencil

I paired it with Unity's Kit of the Month from May 2021 called 



Summer Vibes {kom 5/21} 


This beachy kit get SO much use from me!!!

For this card, ...
 I grabbed so many ink pads, I'd hate to try and list them. so just have some fun with color..

I stamped, then colored, then fussy cut her, and the beach out. 

I stamped the sentiment so many times on so many things, such as velum, and clear card stock, blue cs and white too, but in the end, I simply stamped the sentiment directly onto the card front (eeep, because there's no going back, right?) 

Perfect! I loved it! 

Then I wrapped it around the bottom of the stenciled layer, and Bam! Done...

well, sorta.. I added the blue'ish layer then added it my card base (Slimline)

This was a fun card to make and I've already sent it a friend in Florida who needs some good juju 😉

(remember the "shroom" lady??)
