Garden Flora Stencil...


(click photos to see full size)

Pam here with two cards using the NEW Garden Flora Stencil.  On this card, I laid the stencil on top of a piece of white cardstock and taped it down with removable tape.

Using the Colorbox pigment Queue called Surfs Up, I applied the ink, all the colors, randomly, all over.

I removed the stencil and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Using the rubber stamp Mail Definitions Ranger Archival Black ink and a Stamp a ma jig, I stamped   the panel, starting at the top and moving down, inking and stamping three times.

Heat up your craft iron. Lay the heat embossed and stamped panel face down onto scrap paper, I use a piece of newsprint folded in half, and iron off the embossing.  Be sure to protect your work surface from the heat.


I used some Antique Linen Distress ink and the ink blending tool to add some color to the white areas.  The areas that were heat embossed, still pretty much resist the ink.

Mat the panel with black, add your die cuts, washi tape and mount to a Parchment notecard.  I used the Kylie Stem  and hello script dies.

This next card I used the same Garden Flora Stencil and Mail Definitions stamp but the text is in the background instead of on the flowers and stems.


I taped the stencil to the white piece of card-stock.

Inked it all with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

Stamped it three times with Ranger Archival Black ink and the Stamp a ma jig.

Then removed the stencil.

I spritzed the panel with Glimmer Mist Dazzling Diamonds Spray.  I wish it showed up in the photos but it's really pretty IRL!

I die cut the NEW Zinnia Bouquet and Zinnia Bouquet Background dies from white cardstock.  I inked the three background pieces with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

Glue the background pieces to the Outline piece.


Adhere the flower to the card with mounting squares.

Tie on Hemp cord.

Add the sentiment 'FLOWERS' from the April Showers Bring May Flowers stamp by mounting it to a piece of the Contempo Circle Border die.

Mat the panel with Black card-stock and adhere it to a Kraft notecard.

There are so many techniques to try with the NEW Stencils and dies!  Can't wait to see what you all come up with too!

THANKS so much for looking and your comments!  I appreciate it!



I love the way you made the background. At first, I thought it was just stamped on newspaper! The zinnia dies are on my wish list.

thank you Nancy! I love the newspaper look too!

Lovely cards, Pam. So elegant looking and I'll bet the Glimmer mist really makes it pop!

thank you Debbie! The dazzling diamonds glimmer mist makes it look like that one shimmer card-stock that is so nice.

Very pretty. Im loving these stencils.

Such pretty cards - love the text hovering in the background, and all the flowers are gorgeous!
