Blue Grad Card

Love the new Dreamweaver stencil I picked up the other day. I don't have much experience with stencils yet, but I did learn that there is an enormous difference when you use the right paper with distress inks. The Ranger Speciality stamping paper (matte coated cardstock) allows the colors to glide over the paper so beautifully. Definitely going to have to stock up on that paper!

Supplies Used:
Paper: Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper, teresa collins Everyday Moments
Dies: Spellbinders Sentiments One, A2 Curved Borders One, Labels One & Circles, Sizzix Stars
Stamp: Northwoods

Ink: Distress Faded Jeans & Salty Ocean
Other: Sapphire ep, Dreamweaver Stencil
