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.
I hope you’ll play along with us!
Have a crafty day!
