Hi! It’s Lisa here with THREE cards for you today, a video, a giveaway aaaaaand a challenge! (Can you tell we wanted to start our Fourth of July celebrations off with a BANG?)
First up, the video! In this video I wanted to share some techniques for using the new Border stencil from the Stamp Your Story collection. This stencil is awesome, there’s just so many cool things you can do with it.
Here’s a closer look at the cards! First, my fave — I think the dots look like confetti! Love how the colors overlap, too.
Next, the retro card with all the NEON goodness. So great how the border is long enough to easily cover a card. :)
Last but not least a card using every stinking border on the whole stencil! Just love mixing and matching ink colors like this.

Now, how about a new challenge? Since it’s summer here in the northern hemisphere we wanted to keep it simple — the challenge is to create a one layer card. Yep, that’s it! You can use any supplies your heart desires, as long as there is at least one Hero Arts product. Load your card in the Hero Arts Flickr group by midnight PST July 15th and tag it with simplesummer. We can’t wait to see your entries!
Thanks so much for joining me today,
