Multiple Layering Stencils featuring Pinkfresh Studio's Overlapping Leafy Wreath

Updated: Mar 13, 2022

Hello everyone! Layering stencils are one the easiest methods to create cards. Although quick to do, the results would suggest otherwise. Pinkfresh Studio’s Overlapping Leafy Wreath is a set of four stencils that result in a very dimensional looking wreath. There are coordinating dies that allow the wreath to present differently depending how the dies are utilized. I love it when you can use a product in a variety of ways!

The wreaths were stencilled on coloured card stock; ivory and soft pink with Simon Says Stamp’s Pawsitively Saturated Inks using blender brushes.

  • Ivory - Celery, Limelicious, Surf, Seafoam

  • Pink - Celery, Limelicious, Peachy, Grapefruit

  • Ivory - Spring, Tropic, Aegean, Tidepool

After the ink was applied using all four stencils, the second stencil was realigned and Moda Scrap Gelly applied with a palette knife.

For the shaker, the smallest of the two coordinating dies was used to cut the inside of the wreath. The panel, with the die still in place, was stacked on a piece of oversized foam and run through the die cutter. Heat resistant acetate was heat embossed with gold embossing powder and adhered to the back of the wreath opening. The panel was aligned to the foam and adhered. After the excess foam was trimmed, the shaker material was placed in the opening and a black panel adhered to seal the shaker. The shaker was adhered to a top folding , A2 sized card base. The wreath was embellished with sequins and finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.

Both dies were used to die cut the wreath and sheet foam and they were stacked. The largest die from Pinkfresh’s Pretty Frames was used to cut ivory card stock. The frames were adhered to a black card stock panel and then to a top folding, A2 sized card base. The ivory panel was mounted on a foam die cut and adhered to the card. Using the wreath to help place the sentiment, it was stamped with black Versafine ink in the Misti. The wreath was adhered and peach confetti finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew embellished the card.

For the final variation, just the largest die (if things had gone according to plan🤪) was used to cut both the wreath and foam. The sentiments are from Pinkfresh Studio's Floral Notes. The main sentiment was embossed and the secondary sentiment stamped in black Versafine ink. The background was stencilled using Pinkfresh's Argyle Stencil Set and inked on mint card stock with Spring and Tropic. Moda Scrap Gelly was applied to the second stencil after it was inked. The panel was adhered to an A2 sized card base matted in black card stock. After the wreath was adhered, green sequins finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew embellished the card.
