Joy to You - IO Holiday Project Hop & Giveaway

 Welcome to Day 2 of the IO Holiday Project Hop.  

***Affiliate links used when possible at no cost to you***

 Stencils are a quick and fun way to create a handmade greeting card! I ink-blended the Poinsettia in blue and green Distress Inks.  Next, I splattered water on the Distress ink before removing the stencil.  To add a little something extra to the sentiment from Glad Tidings, I layered a banner from the Crazy Stitched set. Since I don't have a stitched IO layer sized for the sentiment I hunted for something to use instead. The inside of the Stitched Frame Tag is a perfect fit!  I love finding different ways to use my supplies!
