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
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
