Today I have a lovely card to share with you, using a technique called, stencil sponging.
I used the "Special Reasons" stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions 2017 Catalog. This set also has a coordinating die called "Stylish Stems."
For this stamping technique, I cut the large flower with the Stylish Stems detailed die. I did the same with the small flowers.
Here is the "stencil" that I cut from a piece of cardstock. This is what I used to place over the pieces of sweet sugar plum and wisteria wonder cardstock, before I cut them out with the "outline" flower dies.
I then sponged in the color over the sweet sugarplum cardstocks and wisteria wonder cardstock that I used for the flower base. I used melon mambo ink around the outside edges of the flowers and elegant eggplant ink for the middle of the flower. I then die cut them with the outline flower image from the Stylish Stems die.
This is a close up of the flower once it has been stencil sponged. I added white perfect accent circles to the middle of the flowers and the Stitched Shape Framelits for the whisper white square around the flowers.
I'm going to try this with oranges and reds and maybe even different shades of blue. I'm totally loving this stamp set combined with this cool stamping technique.
Go ahead and give it a try!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin and Come back again soon!
