  15. Crystals (Missing some colours?)
  16. Paper Trimmer
  17. Water Spray 

Step-by-step guide:

1. Trim the card blank down to 7 1/2" x 5 1/2". Trim pink card to measure 7 1/4" x 5 1/4", and white stamping card to measure 7" x 5".
2. Place the Geometric Gems Stencil on a piece of paper towel, rub some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide on the stencil, and spritz with water.
3. Place the stencil ink side down on the piece of white stamping card and leave in place for a few minutes.
4. Carefully remove the stencil and allow card to dry.
5. Stamp piglet, balloon and letters using Memento ink. Colour with gem pens, carefully cut out, and apply Magic glue. Add crystals then seal with Crystal Art Sealer. (Check out Shar's blog post on how to use Crystal Art Sealer if you are not sure how to do it!)
6. Stamp out the sentiment from the Parrot Paradise Stamp set using Memento ink, trim and mat to a slightly larger piece of pink card.

7. Mat the stencilled white card to the slightly larger piece of pink card, and affix to card blank. Use foam pads to affix HELLO, piglet and balloon to the card, and glue to affix the sentiment.
