Layered English Garden Florals

Hi guys! I’m up on the Pinkfresh 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 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. Then my stenciled image went into my MISTI stamping platform and I heat embossed silver over it. So 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 white cardstock was cut to 3 1/4 X 6 1/2. Then I used Pinkfresh’s Slim Lacy Edgers along both sides of the card, 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!

      Hi Marilyn! For that ombre sentiment I used finger daubers (picked mine up from and used them to apply 3 different shades of purple directly to the stamp. I used Soft Lilac and Lavender on most of it, with just a little Candy Violet at the bottom of the stamp (and Regal Kiss only on the letters that have long descenders). Then I heat embossed over it with WOW!’s “Halo”, which is a clear, sparkly embossing powder. I hope that helps, thanks for reaching out. Let me know if you have any more questions, I could seriously talk cardmaking, ALL. DAY. Thanks Marilyn!
