Birds on my Brain

Mary Kay's stencil game is on fire lately!

Despite her full time work in a different industry, she runs her crafty company - a lot of people don't realize that a lot of your favorite crafty companies are extremely busy people.

So next time you think that your order hasn't shipped quickly enough, or your email wasn't answered fast enough, imagine running a manufacturing company in the time you have left after you work full time, feed people, do laundry and try to have a life. :)

I am loving all her mid-century stencils, especially this fun bird one I am using today.

I used just two ink colors - Bumble Bee and Tomato to create this tri-color ombre over the stencil, tacking it down with Pixie Spray.

I used these sweet embellishments to add little flowers and this die to cut the sentiment and its shadows. Stencils make for such quick and fun cards.

  1. Those two inks together are so cheery... and I need Pixie Spray in my life obviously, because I could not keep those birdies still for brushing. Magic.

  2. I bought some Pixie Spray and am trying to get my stencils out and use them!
