Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - July Subscription Items

Hello to all the Arties coming by today! Welcome to Del & Artie and the weekly B|M Inspiration Team Blog Hop! The team features the Brutus Monroe subscription items across the blog hop this week. I chose the stencil of the month!

Every month, the Brutus Monroe will ship a beautiful stencil to your door for $8. It’s an great value and it includes shipping.

To create today’s card, I began by die cutting the hello three times from white cardstock. Then I stacked them together using liquid adhesive.

Then, I stamped the bee image from the Love Bug Stamp Set and colored it in with Copic markers. I added a few details with a white gel pen and then cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut machine.

I cut out an outline of the die cut Hello and the bee image in black and adhered them to the backs of each piece.

Then, I took the stencil of the month and blended some Zest ink over the center of it with a Life-changing Blender Brush.

This is a clean and simple card and one of my favorite setups for cards. I hope you enjoyed today’s card and the simple use of the subscription item: Stencil of the Month.

Below you will find a grid of supplies I used to create this card. If I inspire you, I would appreciate your support by using my links to make a purchase at no additional cost to you!

Hop along with the whole team — I have a list of hop participants below!
