Layered Stencils

Hello friends!

I am back with the layering stencils that was released yesterday. I simply had too many projects and couldn't share them all in one post! 

Here is the one I made with the Fabulous Flora Embossing Folders/Stencil release.

Altenew-Meadow Burst Stencil Set (5 in 1)-Note For You Die Set 

There are all kinds of layering stencils. This particular kind allows you to add more and more branches and details with each stencil.

 The price point is higher, however, it is the detailed stencil what makes this set so special. Basically, I took out all my favorite shades of green, pink, yellow and orange. Why not!?

This is the time to make great use of all your inks! If you line up each stencil as you go, you can actually mass produce cards with this set of stencils!

It was so therapeutic to play with this set once you see it got layered up. I hope that you like my project today. Be sure to check out yesterday's post and leave me a comment for your chance to win $20- $50 Altenew Gift Card! Thanks for stopping by!

As you can see that the vellum panel was dry-embossed. After running this Curving Leaves 3D Embossing folder through the die cut machine, I inked up the alcohol ink.

I then took out my Quilling Tool and curved up each piece in various curls.  It does take some effort to curl up the pieces, but I love the result and thought it was  "worth it"!

I hope your Friday is a great one so far. I decided to do a brief reviews on my projects based on love/Valentine's themed. I am focusing the products from Spellbinders. Currently, Spellbinders is running a "Feel The Love" sales offer.  

This card has a base plate and that makes it super easy to assemble. The peeking out flowers are extra shiny and firm thanks to the Glossy Accent.
