Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today, and I have a crisp peach and white stenciled project that features the gorgeous new Impressionist Bouquet layered stencil and die set. I love that stencils are having a renaissance. Add in the coordinating dies and they're just. so. much. fun! The Impressionist Bouquet Stencil & Die Bundle creates a large bouquet, which is gorgeous by itself, but then the die set can cut out not just the bouquet, but also the individual flowers as well! I've got a crisp peach, white, and navy project for you today, so let's get started with the details!
I began by stenciling the images in the Impressionist Bouquet twice onto some white cardstock using Martian Terrain inks, with some Fresh Leaf and Lime Crisp Dye Inks for the foliage. I die cut the final stenciled images using the coordinating dies, first keeping the bouquet intact, and then cutting the second stenciled image using the individual flower dies in order to create a nice full arrangement!
For the card base, I die cut a Garden Trellis Cover Die from some white cardstock and adhered it to a white card base. I love the crisp and subtle texture this white on white technique adds to the card base! It allows the colorful flowers to be the star of the show but adds a bit of interest and pizzazz to the card base itself.
I arranged the flowers so that they would be dripping down the card front and off the sides. I then adhered them using a combination of liquid adhesive and Instant Dimension Foam Tape. The combination of both adhesives helps add so much extra dimension to the card! I added a navy blue die-cut “thanks” from the All About Thanks Die Set. I think that the combination of peach with navy blue is so classic and beautiful! Finally, I added a few peachy iridescent gems to add some sparkle to the card front.
Well, that's all for my project today! Have you tried using stencils with coordinating dies? They are so much fun to play with, and you can do so many techniques with them! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
