Welcome back friends. Yesterday was a very busy day so although this released yesterday, I’m sharing it today to spread things out a bit.
Spellbinders has a few releases this month that I was lucky enough to get to play with early. The Glimmer Cardfront Sentiments release also has this gorgeous stencil and die combo. I loved creating this card and think making sets of these in color themes would be a wonderful gift to share with someone.
To start, I used an A2 piece of white cardstock and inked up the stencil, step-by-step. It was super easy to follow and has registration marks for each step so you know it’s lined up perfectly. I chose distress oxides today because I wanted to splattered/splotchy look. For my detail layer on the flowers, I also used glitz glitter gel to add sparkle to the flower centers. Once it was dry, I used the coordinating die to cut the florals out.
I spritzed them with water and blotted them dry, then flicked gold watercolor on them as well. While that step was drying, I took a 4×5.25 inch white panel and used the Dazzling Dots embossing folder on it. I popped this panel up on a white card base with foam tape before doing the same with the flowers.
There is a wonderful hello die and shadow that comes in the set as well. I cut the word from glitter foam using the peach in the painted desert pack. I used liquid glue to adhere it to the vellum shadow and then to the flowers.
Isn’t this stencil just beautiful?!? It was so simple to use too!
