Outside In Cards + Clarity Stencil Brushes

Don't you just love it when you have the best time creating a couple of cards?   I'm calling these Outside In cards.  I just made that up because I put elements that might normally be found on the outside of a card on the inside.  Also, this is the first time I used my Clarity Stencil brushes.  And I love the results!

See those hearts?  Created with a handmade stencil and a Clarity Stencil brush.  Love how they look!  I've got a video posted below to show the brush in action.

That cute puppy is from an ancient Sandy Lion set of stamps that I've had for years and never opened.  Seriously. Had it forever.  So cute.  Why did I not use it???  Oh, well... using it now!

Here you can see the Outside In part of the card.  Kind of fun and made me smile!  Created a larger heart stencil for that one.

You know I love sweet and cute!  This card hits all my buttons.  And I finally used one of my vintage candles. 

Here's the Outside In part.  Adorable birthday pups!  If you like them, you can download them below.

I created some circle stencils of various sizes with a die and punches.  You can see one of the Clarity Stencil brushes there.  I've used stencil brushes that you pounce in the color.  This is brushed on, so you get that beautiful gradient look in the color.  

You can see in this video how I used the brush:

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you.

So glad you stopped by!  Happy Creating!
