HYCCT1419 LOVE Bricks

Happy Thursday!  My kids are off today and tomorrow for teacher convention.  My husband is also off and hopefully, we won’t drive each other all crazy.

Continuing with my HYCCT cards today, I have my card for HYCCT1419, which was to “spread it around” — use embossing paste on your card.  I do not have embossing paste in my stash, but discovered an awesome recipe for it on SCS.  If you mix equal parts white glue, white acrylic paint and talcum powder, it works like a champ.  I didn’t have any unscented powder, so I used one of my scented powders from Avon and my card smells quite lovely.

I used my MFT brick wall stencil to create my backdrop.  I wanted this to feel like writing on a wall.  The Love is cut from Melon Mambo with the Avery Elle die.  The sentiment is from Simply Said: Love from Avery Elle.  It is such a fun set, with goofy and serious completions to the “love…”  I kept this very clean and simple, adding in a few tiny pearly rhinestones.
