I've made four cards with a real spring feeling (I'm so longing for spring to arrive, aren't you?)
Here is the step-by-step tutorial.
First I die cut four top fold cards out of white cardstock using a die (this one is from Ebay) and my old cuttlebug.
For the flowers on the panel I used an old stencil I had in my craft stuff and the faux dimensions technique I saw on Jennifers Mcguires blog.
I used Ranger white pigment ink and a spongedauber on colored cardstock.
I repeated this with 4 colors of cardstock.
Then I moved the stencil a bit and sponged over it with a ink matching the color of the cardstock.
It looks as if the flowers have dimension. It looks great and so easy to do.
Using a die cut from My favorite things I cut out panels from the four stenciled cardstocks.
With my misty and some scaps of white cardstock I stamped the sentiment and the swirls. I used blowing flowers and spring time hugs for this. Once stamped I die cut them out.
Finally I used white Nuvo crystal drops in the centre of the stenciled flowers. They look like daisies now.
The little flowers in the corner I made years ago out of polymer clay (fimo).
The faux dimension technique is a great technique to use with stencils.
More examples on how to use stencils from the So Suzy Stamps design theme you can find HERE.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
(Spring Time) Hugs, Henriette.
