Relax!!

Here is a quick card I made using some of the new Spellbinders dies released at CHA.  In order to get the Impression to look right, I found that inking up my Sea Scape Impressabilities stencil die before I ran it through my machine worked to give me the best result.  I used my new favorite chalking inks by Quick Quotes in Mango Mai Tai.

If you have never used the Impressabilities stencil dies before, I shot a video not too long ago showing how to use them in a Sizzix Big Kick/Big Shot machine.  A link to that video (look for Video #9) is HERE.

The umbrella is from the Spellbinders Surfs Up Shapeabilities set.  The Relax sentiment was cut on my Silhouette using the font from the Jingle Portfolio.  The ric rac strip across the bottom is a piece of cardstock I cut using the Sizzix Hello Kitty Ribbons Decorative Strip and then inked up with the same Mango Mai Tai ink.  All of the supplies can be found at http://www.scrap-mart.com/ of course!
I don't know about you but I am sooo ready for summer!

I like how that turned out. I've heard about people inking before running it through. I will have to give it a try.
