Hey there friends. When a friend needs a pick me up, what is your go to? A card, flowers, a shoulder to cry on, maybe all of the above? Today I have a card that fits into that encouragement category using some new Pinkfresh products. This card is subtle and sweet given the colors feel so soft and natural.
This one was honestly pretty easy to make. It is a series of stencils, one stamp for the sentiment and one die, then a few finishing touches. I picked up the Pinkfresh Grant Yourself Grace Stamp and Layering Stencil Set. The stencil does most of the work here. I started out by cutting some white CS to 4X5.25, then I added the first layer using stencils #1 and Shaded Lilac Distress Ink with my Blending Brush. I came back with stencil #2 and added Seedless Preserves on top of that. Now, because I was moving the stencil around, it was a little bit harder to keep track of how to layer, so keep that ink mind when using this.
This set comes with a total of 6 stencils, but for these little flowers, you don’t really need to use #3 or #4 and can set those aside. I came back in with Stencil 5 using Peeled Paint and then with Stencil #6 used Forest Moss. When layering like this, I start with the lighter color and then add in the darker.
Next, I splattered some ink form the Villainous Potion Ink refill onto the surface using a paintbrush. I let that dry and then used a fingernail to distress the edges of this layer. I mounted this with my Scrappy tape onto my white base. Then I used some purple cardstock and die cut the label from the Gina K Master Layouts 10 Die set. On that, I stamped the sentiment from the Pinkfresh Grant Yourself Grace Stamp Set. I mounted this onto the stenciled layer using foam tape. Lastly, I added a few embellishments using glue dots.
Here is one more look at the final creation, I think it turned out lovely. This is really a pretty stencil and stamp set that you can use to mass produce this type of card. Next, time, I will likely play with the floral images on the stamp set itself, so many possibilities!
