Stenciling a garden

Hello, crafting friends!
I love stencils!

This card was made with the Flower Bouquet Builder stencil by MFT. I love how versatile this stencil is (look at THIS very different card made with it!)
This time, I sponged blue ink the bottom of a panel, fading upwards. Over the top I stenciled a leafy sprig several times, varying the position and height. These were topped with pretty flower tops in three sizes.

The panel was cut using a large arch die from The Greetery and topped with an ornate birthday sentiment from the Arched Sentiments stamp set and matching die. The arch was attached to a card front using dimensional pads.

I'm linking this card up with the Stencil Fun Challenge where Anything Stenciled Goes with Optional Hearts; also AAA Birthday where the team want to see birthday cards made using stencils; I was inspired by Joanne's colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches too.

We've been having some wonderful walks lately. The weather has been dry and warmish and the dogs have wasted no time in taking the opportunity to have a swim!

There are no changing rooms or towels to hand but an enthusistic game of chase soon dries a pup off!!

Sending hugs,


  1. A beautiful CAS card,the arched diecut the perfect shape to showcase the stencilled design.

  5. Absolutely beautiful Vicky, love the flowers and the gorgeous shape. Had a look at the other card, they are so different, what a handy stencil.

  6. So beautiful and the arched design is a lovely way to highlight the colours whilst keeping your card CAS. Thanks for sharing over at CC&S this week!
