CA Poppies Stencil

It's Thursday, so that means the Stampendous Design Team members are sharing ideas using our beautiful line of stencils. Here's one I did a while back for Stampendous featuring the gorgeous CA Poppies Stencil from the Dreamweaver line.

MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper
DCP1005 Fitted Frames A Die Cut - size Q
GM220U Multi Ultra Fine Crystal Glitter

DWLL521 CA Poppies Stencil
DWLL332 Picasso Stencil
DWDEPT Translucent Embossing Paste
DWDPK Dreamweaver Palette Knife
DWLM2010 Paste Spreader

My Colors Cardstock - Sweet Potato
Graphic 45 Cardstock Aquatic Passage 4501321
Radiant Neon Inks - Electric Yellow, Electric Orange, Electric Coral, Electric Green
Memento Tuxedo Black
Ink Blusher
Double sided tape
Scrapbook Adhesive White Foam Squares
Removable tape
May Arts Ribbon

Step 1:  Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Sweet Potato cardstock in half to form a top fold A2 card
Step 2: Tape the CA Poppies stencil to a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" piece of white cardstock with removable tape
Step 3:  Use stencil brushes to apply inks to the image, using the Picasso tool to help with color placement, remove the stencil, clean and dry the stencil
Step 4:  Tape the Poppies stencil back over the colored image
Step 5:  Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply a coat of Translucent embossing paste over the image, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning
Step 6: Immediately sprinkle the wet paste with Crystal Glitter, tap off extra, let image dry thoroughly
Step 7:  Cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of the Graphic 45 patterned paper, use an ink blusher to add a little Electric Orange around the edges, tie an orange ribbon near the bottom then adhere to the front of the card
Step 8: Use Fitted Frames Set A, size Q to cut frames from the Sweet Potato cardstock (the larger frame) the from the dry, pasted image (the smaller matching frame)
Step 9: Adhere the two frames together and use foam tape to adhere to the front of the card

Don't forget we have a hop going on this week with Nathalie Kalbach's team. Stop over at the Stampendous Blog for that list of designers. There are prizes!

Happy Creating,

The poppies are so pretty.
The rise from the embossing paste really
makes them stand out.
The colors of the card are great.
