 I totally forgot to share the other card we made in our Zoom class with you, I was getting it ready to mail it out and realized I needed to share.  We did a few with this technique but so far this is the only one I made into a card so far.

We embossed our stamped flowers with black embossing powder ahead of time and then together we used our stencils to fill in the background of the flower, I used a few different yellows and oranges but they were so close that it is hard to see, I think this is a fun technique.  The more open your stamp the better and the smaller your stencil pattern is the best.

Sorry I don't have the maker of the flower stamp, if you know please let me know, I was thinking it might be stampendous but couldn't see it on their website, maybe it is retired.

  • Flower stamped w/black embossing powder
  • Carabelle Studio - Cosmics cubes stencil
  • Teresa Collins - Tell your story paper
  • Martha Stewart - Garden Trellis punch
  • Making memories - Rub on doodles
  • Spellbinders - Happy Birthday die

It felt good to get out those rub ons I have had for years and to be able to use them too!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,  Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Hi Connie. What a delight to come back from vacation and play catch up on your blog. You've had lots of lovely floral inspiration while I was away. The stenciling on this flower is so clever. The lattice in the background is so pretty too!
