Hello Crafty Friends!!
Happy Friday!! Today I'm here sharing a Card I made using the AMAZING two piece Hibiscus Stencil Set. The two piece stencils have etching of the opposite layer on them which makes them easy to line up and use with multiple colors or mediums. To achieve the stunning effect on this card, I used Green Grass Glitz Glitter Gel by Gina K Designs and mixed it with some White Pearl Metallix Gel along with a couple drops of Distress Oxide Ink Refill in Lucky Clover to create my own custom color!! I used this Gel for the stencil layer that has the leaves. Using some Pixie Spray and the Stencil Pal both by Therm O Web really make it easy to apply!! Then I switched to the stencil that has the flowers and used Deco Foil Transfer Gel then set it aside to Dry and once dry I wanted to add Gold Deco Foil to the Steam-in, so cut little piece of Gold Deco Foil and laid them over the Dry Gel then I applied some White Latte Deco Foil Flocking over the entire piece by running it through my Laminating Machine!! SWOON!! When you remove the Flocking sheet you'll see that the Foil adhered only where it was placed and the rest was Flocked!! After I finished the foiling and flocking I lined up the flower stencil layer a second time and added Distress Ink in Seedless Preserves using an Ink Dauber over the flocked flowers to give them their lovely color!! I Concentrated the Darker Color towards the center of the Flower!!
Once this gorgeous panel was created, I framed it with a scalloped edge border using the Frames & Flags Die Set. Then I stamped the "thank you" sentiment from the Peony Blooms Stamp Set and cut it out using the stitched circles from our Frames Squared Die Set to layer over the background. To finish off the Flowers I added some Studio Katia Gold Pearls!! I LOVE the way they finish them off!!
Here are some close-up photos so you can see the sparkle and texture of this Technique!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE these NEW Stencils and I just LOVE all of the possibilities you have when using them with several mediums together for a one of a kind Design!!
I hope I've given you some ideas on ways to use the NEW Layering Hibiscus Stencil!! Think of ALL of the products you may have laying around in your stash!! NOW you have a FUN reason to get them out and Create with them!!
