Showers of Showers! Week 1

Welcome to the Stampendous-Dreamweaver Stencils April challenge of "Showers to Showers!" Our designers have so many choices with this theme, baby, wedding, rain...You'll definitely want to see what we come up with each week of April!

Today I chose to interpret the theme this way:

For your Shower!
I thought this would be the perfect card for when you go to a bridal shower this Spring or Summer. It's pretty easy and you can make it to match the color scheme of the shower or wedding.

  • Paste emboss the Umbrella stencil, LG737, on colored cardstock using Glossy White Embossing Paste
  • Let the paste dry, clean and dry the stencil
  • Dry emboss (by hand or with a die cut machine) the Daisies, LL548, and/or the Tall daisies (LL549), three or four times
  • Place the stencil back over the embossed image and use stencil brushes to add yellow to the centers (be sure to use your Picasso, LL332 to help you with this!) and a very light blue along the outer edges of the petals (this helps the design show better)
  • Cut out the flowers, layer up your card, add a stamped or stenciled saying (I used LG738 Rain words), and you have a beautiful card!

Our "A" wants to "shower" you with lots more ideas, so be sure to stop over and leave them a "shower" of comments!
