Hello and happy Friday everyone! It’s time for a little reminder post for the January Flower challenge! It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through January 😶!
The theme for January is “Embossing”. Floral projects using any embossing technique are welcome!
I made a stenciled floral card using Garden Florals Layered stencil by Pinkfresh Studio. For the background I used the Argyle stencil also by Pinkfresh Studio. I combined stenciling and dry embossing when I created the background.
I started off by die cutting a white cardstock using the Garden Florals coordinating die so that I could align the five stencils in the set more easily. There are also marks on four corners of the stencils which matches to an A2 sized panel. I stenciled the flowers in Marigold, Coral Reef and Apricot and the leaves in Summer Shower and Grassy Knoll.
I stenciled the Argyle pattern on the negative piece which I got after die cutting the floral cluster. Before stenciling I ink blended it in Sky Blue and Fresh Pear. I then stenciled the line pattern (stencil 2) in Misty Coast. With the stencil 1 I filled the rhombuses instead of making the actual Argyle pattern in the same colors I used for the first ink blending. Next I moved the stencil 1 to the position as supposed to use to make the Argyle pattern and dry embossed the background piece. The added dimension is hard to catch in a photo though.
I adhered the background piece on a white cardbase and added the scalloped frame which I cut using the Stitched Scallop Rectangles die using foam tape. I then mounted the Garden Florals image on it.
The sentiment is from Believe in Yourself set (Pinkfresh Studio). I white heat embossed “Believe” on a piece of black cardstock and cut it using the coordinating die. The long sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of white cardstock. I ink blended the strip in Summer Shower and Grassy Knoll. To finish off the card I used some white Jewels.

This is so pretty TaeEun and love the terrific added dry embossed argyle pattern added in the background, and such beautiful colours and the stitched scalloped frame works wonderfully too. x
WOW! This is STUNNING TaeEun! I LOVE the gorgeous flowers (my favourite colours — spring is coming!). The framing is just perfect to show off the flowers, and the layered stenciling of your background — amazing! Sounds like a bit of a process for the background, but so worth it … that argyle pattern is awesome! xx
This is so beautiful, TaeEun! I always doubt how all of the new floral stencils will turn out, but your blooms are just stunning!! And that background is so awesome! I’m forever looking for a decent argyle pattern & this one is so IT!!!
It looks like I’ve been missing out on those layered stencils, TaeEun. The flowers are so beautiful but it is the argyle background that has me mesmerized. I love the way you did it although I’m not sure I understood all the steps. You never cease to inspire me.
Such lovely layering and detailing, TaeEun … this is simply lovely … just like a summer meadow of drifting wildflowers! Anita 🙂
Just wonderful I love these stencils, I am having the urge to shop, you colour so well with them. Another wonderful card xx
