For the first card, I started with the Craftangles Rectangle mask stencil. I used the medium size stencil as I wanted the colourful panel to stand out.

I then used the Craftangles barcode stencil to add colour to the masked area, using Tim Holtz distress inks and Craftangles blending brushes.

Once the colouring was done, I stamped the flowers (Craftangles ‘Celebrate You’ stamp set )and sentiments (‘Celebrate you‘ and ‘Love you Loads’) with black ink.

I finished the panel by adding some black enamel dots.

I adhered the panel to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base to finish the card.

For the second card, I repeated the process, this time with the Craftangles Circle mask stencil. These mask stencils are fab as you can get wow effects with minimum effort.

The sentiments I used here are from the Craftangles ‘Love you loads’ stamp set. I decided to add a simple embellishment of a glittery silver heart to finish the card.

For the third card, I repeated the colouring process as described above, this time with the Craftangles Heart stencil.,the largest in the set.

The fabulous sentiment is from the Craftangles ‘What I need’ stamp set.

I added some glittery silver enamel dots to finish the sweet and simple card.

I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I enjoyed making them.
