Hi! Today I have another design team contribution for Addicted to stamps and more where our challenge is die cuts and stencils. Well I ended up combining the two by making a stencil out of the die cut!
I started by die cutting the background out of white cardstock and then making an inky background to go behind this … this created a pretty pink background on which I knew a floral element would look best.
I thought I would go for a wreath first of all but then decided not to stay with a wreath but to just put one down as a base and then I chose Jar of Flowers for the main feature. I coloured in the flowers with my promarkers before fussy cutting them out. I then punched the jar and added the little bow to it. I added a little foam behind to give it some dimension before adhering it to the background panel.
I decided it need tie in the black more so used the biggest wish stamps for the sentiment and used black for framing them.
Inside the card I used a die cut scrap to create the stencil and used the same pink inks to add a little interest inside the card.
I added the panel to the front of a 5×7 card and then added gems to finish off.
Pleased with how this came out. Must admit that background die creates a lot of little bits of card and the carpet is now rather in need of a vacuum but I do love the background regardless!
