OK, I am looking at this New Year's resolution a little like my exercise routine - every time I post it becomes a little easier and way more fun.  So here we go

I recently signed up to take a Stenciled class with some great designers (Kristina Werner, Jennifer McGuire, Laura Bassen, Shari Carrol, Julie Ebersole and Debby Hughes).  Nothing could be easier—or more satisfying—than seeing a beautiful design magically appear when you lift away a stencil. In this class, you’ll learn sixteen exciting new techniques for this inexpensive and popular tool, including embossing paste, layering, masking, embossing, and more!

While I would love to purchase all of the new stencils that I am finding, it just isn't feasible.  One of my new sayings is - Use what you see, so that you can use what you have to create fun, beautiful new designs. 

I copied the sentiment from my stamp and made it larger (hence another way to use your stamps).  After stenciling this heart I just followed the design and cut it out. The light caught just right so you can see the embossing gloss on the heart.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting, hope you can use this design to create your own beautiful creation.  Until next time - Happy Crafting.

for this card I used BAZZIL 2-253 Peppermint paper, pink and white card stock. The stamp set is Simon Says Very Special, Hearts where made from a stencil set found at Michael's crafts, 3D Gloss Enamels RED, Classic Stampin Up Rose Red ink, and Gelly Roll Glitter Pen.
