Playing with NBUS



I recently took some time to design with some NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) that was sitting out in my craft room just begging to be played with. I could not resist the heart stencil the first time I saw it at Simon Says Stamp. I sponged two shades of distress ink through the heart openings and then cut the border with a new border die from Spellbinders. I layered on a burgandy card base and added a simple "love" die cut from Tim Holtz for Sizzix. CAS but perfect for a wedding or any love occasion.

I am entering this card in the "Stencil It!" challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create.

What a beautiful work of art with that stencil and the lovely edged die cut. I have lots NBUS myself to work with but not finding time. Oh, well! It will still be there waiting for me I guess.
