day 1 STAMPlorations spotlight - Fond Expressions


Welcome to day 1 of Spotlight Week - five new sets, one to be spotlighted each day this week. Ready?

Here is today's spotlighted set - Fond Expressions.



"May love always surround you". Hmm, sounds like a job for ARTplorations Hearts all Over stencil!


Masked off the center of my Neenah CS panel and pounced some red, orange and pink Distress Inks through the stencil. Removed the mask and stamped my sentiment in the white oval. And thought it needed something more. So I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut oval and adhered it. And you can't go wrong with a few enamel dots, right?

I'm joining the Make your own Background over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

So, hop on and see what the other girls have created. Be sure to comment by April 27th, there are prizes up for grabs as always! Enjoy!
