Crafty with Caly: XL Rose Bouquet

Hi friends! Happy Saturday! Please join me in welcoming special guest Caly Person to our blog today in the latest edition of our bi-monthly series, Crafty with Caly! Read on and be sure to watch the video for all the details! Enjoy!

Hi, Friends! Stencils are quickly becoming my favorite cardmaking tool – it’s so easy to add color and shading.  The best part is that it’s quicker than any other medium that I like to use.   Today’s card features the XL Rose Bouquet stencil.  It’s a large stencil for larger or slimline-sized cards.  My card today is 5” x 7”.

I taped my white panel to the back of the stencil and began ink-blending with Simon Says Stamp Inks.  I start with the flowers, then the foliage and finish with the berries.

Colors used (in order):  Rose Apple, Magnolia, Jellybean, Fern, Hot Mama

WATCH THE VIDEO:

The Rainbow Pack Blender Brushes are perfect for ink-blending small areas.  After ink-blending the flowers and foliage with the lighter color, I went over them with a darker shade to add depth additional color.  I really recommend doing this because it will take the “flat” out of your one-layer panel.

I splattered the panel with gold and white paint and while that dried, I die-cut my sentiment using the CZ Hello Dies.  I die-cut the base/halo from vellum and the word “hello” using gold glitter cardstock.  I die-cut it twice more using white cardstock to layer for additional dimension.

To finish, I cut a sentiment from the Thinking of You Sentiment Strips to accompany my “hello” sentiment and embellished my card with a few iridescent sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! ~Caly
