I used the new Vertical Lines Stencil to make this fun and interesting background. First, I sponged with blue ink on the vertical, then turned the stencil and sponged with green ink on the horizontal. Cute, right? This technique would look great with any combination of colors thanks to the overall pattern and the clean lines. Rubbernecker Stamps has a whole line of new stencils that make really pretty (and easy) backgrounds on all of your projects.
The Nested Circle Scallop w/Holes Die Cut was used as the background for the shaker card and the Circle Stitch One Piece Combined Die Cut was used to make the blue circle frame. It’s so great how different shapes can work together to make shaker windows! Have you tried making a shaker yet? I know sometimes it’s intimidating to try something out of our comfort zones, but these products make it super easy to let the creative juices flow, and create something fun and new. Maybe try it out on your next project! Rubbernecker has several nested dies and complementary dies that would work together beautifully in this way. You can see an assortment here.
