Hi guys! It's Anne here up on the blog today with a layered mini slimline made with a new Pinkfresh product that coordinates with a previously released design, the English Garden Layering Stencil set. I also used the coordinating English Garden stamp set and die.
I started with the new 6-piece layering stencil set and some Pinkfresh inks on white cardstock. For some of the leaves (Stencil #1) I used, Misty Coast and Storm, and for the rest I used Soft Lilac, Lavender and Candy Violet. For the remaining branches (Stencil #2), I used Metropolis. The flowers were colored in with Ocean Breeze and Aquamarine. There was some masking but I wasn't really worried about these colors bleeding into each other.
Then my stenciled image went into my MISTI and I heat embossed silver over it. Pretty!
After I die cut it all out with the coordinating die I decided to arrange the flower bunches in a sort of wreath of my own, so I cut out some circles using the Folk Edge Circles dies and set all of those pieces aside. The base of the card is Simon's fog cardstock cut to measure 3 1/2 X 6 1/2 inches when folded. The topping piece of white cardstock was cut to 3 1/4 X 6 1/2. Then I decided to use Pinkfresh's Slim Lacy Edgers along both sides of the card because a straight lined edge looked a little too abrupt to me and I liked the repeating circles.
I laid the die cut circles down on my card base (topped by the white piece) and started arranging flowers here and there till I got an arrangement I liked. I deconstructed everything and started adhering all of the pieces back together using glue and foam tape for dimension. The sentiment is from another new release: Just a Hello Floral stamp and die sets. I added some silver pearls and was done.
I hope that this has inspired you to make something new today. Thanks so much for coming by!
