Summer Fun & More - IO July Release Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the July Release Hop!

Let's dive right into it! The other day, I made a fun discovery with the snowfall stencil by mistake. I ink-blended the background with Distress inks, placed the stencil over the top, took a wet rag, and wiped the dots with water. Water seeped under the stencil and left a lot of watery blending. I didn't use as much water for this background, so the result was slightly less...blendy but still eye-catching! I recommend this technique for some unique backgrounds!

Here's what I used:

Next, I am featuring Just Bee-cause, a fun bee set! These bees are so cute and designed that even a fussy-cut challenged person like me can easily fussy-cut them! I randomly inked the Batik Cross stencil for the background. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the set on a Wacky Stitched Circle.  

Lastly, I am back to Christmas with the elegant Holly Frame. The set allows for gorgeous layers with little effort. I used paper from the Christmas Plaids paper pack for the inner layer. Then, I embellished it with sequins, added a sentiment from the Joyous Christmas stamp, and die-cut it with the accompanying Joyous Christmas die.
