Bed of Roses Layering Stencil Cards x2 with Trinity Stamps!! How to Step up your Stenciled Designs!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!!

I'm here today with my first Post as Trinity Stamps Guest Designer for March!! SQUEAL!! I'm so EXCITED!! So today I'm going to share a couple of Cards with you showing you how you can use the NEW Bed of Roses Stencil Set!! I LOVE Stencil Sets as they are SO VERSITILE and there are so many ways you can use them!! Plus with the Size of the NEW Bed of Roses Stencil Set is 6x9, so you can actually get more than one Card/Project from just one Stenciling!! So that's a BONUS too!! Let's get started!! 
Here are the Cards I've made for today!! They make me SO READY for Spring, but Florals can be used ALL Year Long!! I LOVE to use my Distress Oxide Inks and you can step things up by using some Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock and Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel!! SWOON!! The Color possibilities are ENDLESS too!! I can see a Set of these in Rainbow Colors for a Gift Set to give as a Gift as well!! Then did you spy the coordinating Envelopes!!?? Yep, how SPECIAL do they make these Cards when sending them to someone SPECIAL!!?? 
I Started by Spraying the back side of the Stencils with Therm O Web Pixie Spray!! It's a GAME changer when working with Layering Stencil Sets!! Then I adhered the Roses Stencil over my Cardstock and pressed in firmly into place!! 
Then I inked with a Layer of Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Ink and an Ink Dauber!! 
I removed the Stencil and then Inked around the Roses with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink using a Blender Brush!! Then I added a healthy Splattering of Water!! I LOVE the Oxidization of the Inks and the added texture that it adds to the panel as well!! I used my Heat Tool to heat set the Panel and to make sure it was completely dry before moving on to the next step!! 
Then I took the Distress Oxide Ink in Milled Lavender again and Inked around the area of the Roses!! I wanted to create the Base of the Roses!! Making the Bases a little larger than the Stenciled Design!! Having that Stenciled Rose Design in place helps to know exactly where to ink!! 
Here's the Panel completely inked!! 
Next I adhered the Leaves Stencil over the Panel and Inked with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink using an Ink Dauber!! Then to add some extra Dimension to the Leaves I inked over the top of them with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink using an Ink Dauber!! SWOON!! 
I LOVE this Color combo for Spring Designs!! 
Here's what the Panel looks like after I removed the Leaves Stencil!! Isn't it just STUNNING!!?? Imagine all of the different Color Combos that you can use and how you can even play with the colors depending on the Season!! 
ENDLESS Possibilities!! 
Next I realigned the Roses Stencil over the Top of my Panel and placed it into place!! Then I Inked with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink!! 
This is what the Panel looks like after inking all of the Roses!! STUNNING Right!!??

Here's the Card I created using the Inked Panel!! Plus, I still have enough Cardstock left to create a Couple more projects!! 
I started by Die Cutting all of the Panels using the NEW Modern Embossed Rectangle Stack Dies!! I absolutely LOVE these Dies and the AWESOME Embossed detail they leave on the edges of the Panels!! I Die Cut the Cardbase using White Cardstock and the largest Rectangle Die!! Then I created the Doodlebug Gingham Patterned Paper Panel using the next Size Rectangle Die!! I Die Cut the 4th Rectangle from the Stenciled Cardstock to create the Focal Panel!! 
I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters to the Stenciled Panel to add some extra Texture!! Then once it was completely dry I adhered all of the panels together with Therm O Web Ultra Bond Adhesive!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Hello There Sentiment from the Hello There Stamp Set onto the Second to Smallest Rectangle Die cut from some White Cardstock!! I Stamped with Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and Embossed with WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! 

I adhered the Stamped and Embossed Sentiment onto my Card Panel using some Gina K Designs Foam Tape and then added some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rock Rhinestone Embellishments to add some Sparkle and finish off the Design!! 
I created some coordinating Envelopes as well by Stenciling the Envelope Flaps!! I used Purple Tape to Mask off the Flap and then used the same inks that I used on the Panels to ink on the Envelope Flaps!! Such an EASY process that results in a STUNNING presentation!! 
For my Second Card I wanted to STEP things up a notch and show you how you can use some Therm O Web Products to add some Dimension and Shine to the Design making it more 3D!! I repeated the same exact Inking process in order to get the Base color for my Design!! 
Next I realigned the Leaves Stencil and applied some Therm O Web Transfer Gel Duo using the Stencil Pal to get a nice thin layer!! Then I set it aside to dry completely!! The Transfer Gel will dry completely Clear and be tacky to the touch!! 
The Transfer Gel will dry completely Clear and be tacky to the touch, that's how you know it's safe to move onto the next step!! 
Once it was completely Dry, I cut a piece of Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock in Green Envy and placed it face down ontop of the Dried Gel and ran it through my Die Cutting Machine to burnish that Flock into the Gel!! Then I removed the Backing and SWOON!! Just look at those Flocked Leaves!! This technique NEVER disappoints!! 
In order to add even more Dimension and to make those Flocked Leaves POP even more I replaced the Leaves Stencil over the Flocking and Inked with some Peacock Feather Distress Oxide Ink!! It really does help to make those leaves come to LIFE!! 
Next I wanted to use some Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel to add some Sparkle to the Roses!! So I mixed together some of the Iridescent and Lovely Lavender Glitz Glitter Gel to create my own Color!! I LOVE how the Iridescent Glitter just adds to the beauty of the Lovely Lavender Gel!! 
I realigned the Roses Stencil over the Panel and adhered it into place with the Pixie Spray!! Then I applied the custom Glitz Glitter Gel using my Stencil Pal!! Then I set the Panel aside to dry completely!! 
Here's a look at both of the Stenciled Panels side by side so you can the differences in them just by adding the extra steps to add some Dimension and Shine with the Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock and Glitz Glitter Gel!! No matter how you decide to use the Bed of Roses Stencil Set, the results are just STUNNING!! 
After looking at the Panel, I decided that I need to add some dimension to the Center of the Roses so I applied some more of the Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink using my Ink Dauber and I REALLY LOVE the way it makes them seem even more Three Dimensional!! 
Here's the Card I created using the Flocked and Glitz Glitter Geled Panel!! Plus, I still have enough Cardstock left to create a Couple more projects!! 
I started by Die Cutting all of the Panels using the NEW Modern Embossed Rectangle Stack Dies!! I absolutely LOVE these Dies and the AWESOME Embossed detail they leave on the edges of the Panels!! I Die Cut the Cardbase using White Cardstock and the largest Rectangle Die!! Then I created the Sunny Studio Stamps Gingham Patterned Paper Panel using the next Size Rectangle Die!! I Die Cut the 4th Rectangle from the Stenciled Cardstock to create the Focal Panel!!
I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters to the Stenciled Panel to add some extra Texture!! Then once it was completely dry I adhered all of the panels together with Therm O Web Ultra Bond Adhesive!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Hello There Sentiment from the Hello There Stamp Set onto the Second to Smallest Rectangle Die cut from some White Cardstock!! I Stamped with Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and Embossed with WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!!
I adhered the Stamped and Embossed Sentiment onto my Card Panel using some Gina K Designs Foam Tape and then added some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rock Rhinestone Embellishments to add some Sparkle and finish off the Design!!

So there you have it 2 Cards created using the exact same Trinity Stamps Bed of Roses Stencil Set, but Stepping it up a notch by using different Products to help make the Design come to LIFE!! I hope I've INSPIRED you and that you'll give these techniques a try to create a Set of Cards and coordinating Envelopes of your own to send to someone SPECIAL to help BRIGHTEN their Day!! 

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you'll join me EVERY Saturday this Month as I showcase some more of the AMAZING Trinity Stamps Products!! 
Have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Set!!
For my First Card I'm using the NEW "Newton’s Rainy Day Trio" Stamp Set!!

I also added some Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen to the Umbrellas and Rain Boots for some added Sparkle and I added some Midas Touch Shimmer Pen to the Raincoats!! SWOON!! Sparkle adds even more dimension to the Images!!
 For the Card Panel I Started by Masking off the Ground with some Purple Tape and Inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and then I inked the Sky with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink!! I Sprayed the back of the Raindrops Stencil with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray and adhered it over the Grey Sky and Inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!! I LOVE the Way this turned out!!

Then I added a few Iridescent Jewels to finish off the Design!! 
For my Second Card I Stamped and Embossed the NEW Daffodils Image several times onto my Stitched Rectangle Card Panel using WoW Clear Embossing Ink and WoW Bright White Embossing Powder!! 

Then I Inked with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink over the Embossed Daffodils adding more Ink on to the center of the Daffodils!! After applying the Ink I took a Dry Cloth and burnished any of the excess Ink off of the White Embossing to help make the White Embossing POP!! 
SWOON!! I really LOVE the way this turned out!! 
I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters and then some Sunshine Glitter Nuvo Drops to the Stamen of the Daffodils for some added Sparkle and Texture!! For the Sentiment I Stamped and Embossed it onto a Banner Trio Die with Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!!
