Blossoms in Bloom Stencilled Cards

The new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue from Stampin’ Up! has several new product suites that feature gorgeous floral stamps, die cuts, papers, and embellishments: Flowers For Every Season, Peony Garden, Forever Greenery, Ornate Garden, and Artistry Blooms. But… not to be overlooked is a new bundle, Blossoms in Bloom with a beautiful stamp set and coordinating dies, Many Layered Blossoms.

Blossoms in Bloom from Stampin’ Up!

The two main dies in this bundle are large, even large enough to cover the front of a card. It was the perfect size to try a stencilling technique and make 2 cards with 1 die cut.

I cut out the thinner floral outline from Whisper White cardstock and laid it on the front of the second card. Using sponge daubers, I sponged Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana on the outline and background paper until both were fully coloured.

Now I had a colourful stencilled background and a beautiful die cut to create a focal point on a card base. To the stencilled card I added a simple white embossed “Happy Birthday” on black cardstock and a few embellishments to finish it off.

The coloured die cut was stapled to a textured background and the same sentiment and embellishments were added as the first card.

I love it when one technique produces two cards – it’s a 2 for 1!! What a time saver, especially when you need to send off two birthday cards!

Give it a try with this new die cut or any other one you may have on hand and discover the full range of use of Stampin’ Up! products.

Have fun stencilling!

  1. I’ve seen where they use the sticky 2-sided tape that come in large sheets and use the thin die cut. Then you can use it as a stencil like you did and when your done you just remove the backing and the die cut is now sticky all over and you don’t have to use a stapler.
