3 Creative Ways with Floral Layering Stencils

by Terri

Hey there, Terri here!

Today, I am sharing 3  creative ways with floral layering stencils.

I often hear people say that layered floral stamping can be daunting! I think we all felt that way at first. Altenew has tons of layered florals that are easy to layer, so if you are still feeling unsure, this is where I suggest giving floral layering stencils a go first.

Altenew has a wide array of floral layering stencils.  Whether your style is delicate, retro, or bold, Altenew has a stencil set for you.  I've created three cards, and we'll go through them in order of difficulty starting with the easiest first. Let's jump in and take a look.

3 Cards with Using Floral Layering Stencils

Retro Floral Card

Polka Dot Bud Layering StencilMy first card uses the Polka Dot Buds 2 in 1 stencil set, this is a really cool retro design and so easy to layer.

I stenciled the dots first using a combination of Fresh Lemon and Maple Yellow to give a slight ombre. I then aligned the second stencil, the dot goes into the center of the circle, and the stem touches the bottom, it's so easy. I used Hazelnut and Almond Butter to ink the leaves and stems.

I added my sentiment onto vellum, which was die cut using the Nesting Frames Die Set. I colored some 80lb Solar Crest White Cardstock using Almond Butter and Maple Yellow. I then backed them with Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets before die-cutting the Bold Thanks.

I cut each sentiment three times from the colored card and six times from the white card, I then layered them up so that each had two white layers and then the colored layers on top.  This gives a nice thick faux chipboard sentiment, which was then added to the vellum piece before being placed onto the card.

Bold Floral Card

Next up is the Blobby Roses 4 in 1 stencil set, this floral layering stencil set has a bold modern feel.

I stenciled the pattern onto 80lb Solar Crest White Cardstock using the following ink colors: Dew Drops, Aqualicious, Teal Cave, Bamboo, and Parrot.

I added my sentiment using the Fancy Hello Die – cut twice from black cardstock – and a sentiment from the Sentiment Strips 3 Stamp Set stamped onto the Featured Sentiments die-cut. I felt like I needed a little something to underline the sentiment area, so I added a piece of Delicate Stripes Washi Tape.

Delicate Floral Card

Greenwood flowers

My final card features the Greenwood Flowers 3 in 1 Stencil Set.  It's a stunning layered floral set with a delicate feel.

I started by stenciling the two large flowers onto some 80lb Solar Crest White Cardstock using the following colors: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite, Pastel Sunrise, Canyon Clay, and Burnt Red.

I then covered the flowers with a mask. I use the Altenew Masking Sheets to create my masks as they allow me to use multiple layers of ink with no bleed-through. 

Next, I added the leaves in my chosen position using the following colors: Firefly, Grass Field, and Shadow Creek. The centers of the flowers were colored with Sunray and Marshland.

I trimmed the stenciled panel to measure 4″x5.25″ and then turned it into a full front shaker. Lydia created a video showing how to create a full front shaker card on her blog post here. I then added a die-cut sentiment using the Fancy For You Die, I cut it once from green cardstock and once from Gilded Glitter Cardstock and stacked them together.
