MARCH DT KIT’2018 that i received:
In my March DT kit, I received some really awesome and one of a kind stencils,
To name a few, there was, Abstract patterns stencil, then Splash stencil,fading pattern mini stencil and Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil.
The Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil from Craftyscrappers offers a wide creativity options, they come with “elements” that you can use as masks and create stunning projects and the size of flowers are just perfect!!!
here’s how it looks:
I was eager to try them out the Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil as the layered roses impact is very trendy and popular nowadays. It is a bit tricky and requires a lot of practice. But After some successful attempts I managed to get some pretty roses.
I decided to fussy cut and use the good ones to make a card.
So lets begin with our tutorial now….

Okay so moving on to my tutorials now…
Card#1- Pretty Roses-Watercolor effect!
Below is my take and trial methods I did.
I took some clicks step wise to make it clear how to use them.
To begin with,I used heavy whisper white CS and the Altenew inks in the tones of purple and green to achieve a good result. You can use any dye inks but it should be various shades of same color family. I started with light to darker shades.
You can use pigment inks too but I refer for the best result to use dye inks only.
Place the stencil step wise as shown in the pics.
There are 3 rose elements too for masking.
I placed one of them according to the given size and added those leaves.
Here’s how the final cut pieces looks:
In all I love this stencil set!
With little practice, roses were easy to align and love the final result after fussy cutting, so beautiful!
Then i Die cut a scalloped circle frame 2 times out of white CS and a white foam sheet, made a stack. Now using my die,
I placed Abstract Pattern stencil on my white card base and applied dye ink.
Now placed the stack of die cut scalloped circle
The sentiment Hugs is a Pre die-cut from
Craftyscrapper Die cut set- “SMILE TOGETHER” in black
and finished it with some enamel dots!
Here’s how the final card looks:

I have a short-flip-through video of my final outcome!

Card#2: Time 2 Explore-MIXED MEDIA TECHNIQUE
This is a popular panel theme card in mixed media style. I never plan out for my cards. I just started with 3 panels out of a textured white CS.
Using CS clock and numbers stencil I applied 3 different Memento dye inks to create my wall clocks.
I die cut some flowers and on a craft mat, sprayed those flowers with CS Shimmer Sprays Ocean waves and Sour eggplant, love the shimmery result.
Die cut some more different elements. The sentiment explore and number 2 die cut 3 times to make a good stack and on a top layer applied glossy accent for dimension. Now added all them to create the whole scene on a textured white card base. In the end added some shimmery splatters and applied gesso and shimmery paint to highlighted the flowers with more dimension.
Here is the end result.
Here’s The combined Flip-through video for both of my cards:
