Folk Flowers

Hi Stampers!

Thank goodness for swap cards! I got this amazing swap from Jodi Reinert in the Rising Star Occasions Mini swap. Last month in my stamp clubs we made this card using the Folk Flowers Decor Stencils (118139) from the new Occasions Mini Catalog click here to download.
It's very simple to make. First, cut an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Soft Suede (115318) card stock in half and score it at 4 1/4. Then, take Rich Razzleberry and cut it to 5-1/4" x 4" (which will leave 1/4" on each side) and finally, Very Vanilla (101650), cut at 5" x 3-3/4" is used for the stencil.
To stencil the image: Use Dotto (103305) to temporarily hold the stencil down on the Very Vanilla card stock. Or, (hind sight 20/20) consider using Dotto to hold your Very Vanilla paper to your grid paper and then use tape to secure your stencil. If you use the Dotto on the stencil, be prepared to use Goo-Gone or some other solvent to remove the Dotto from the acrylic stencils. :-(
Inks: In colors - Crushed Curry (115659), Soft Suede (115657), Rich Razzleberry (115658)
Using stamping sponges (101610) I sponged my stencil on the Very Vanilla card stock.
When removing the stencil you may need to use an adhesive remover (103684) to remove the Dotto resido.
Now, taking your Soft Suede ink and your sponge, sponge along the sides of the Very Vanilla to soften the image. You can also use your sponge to gently dab on the image.
To finish off this card we used the paper piercing tool (116631) to add our brad - circle fire (109110) in the center of the flower.
Assemble with tombow multi purpose adhesive (110755) and dimensionals (104430) for an added effect.

Happy Stamping!
