Day 4 STAMPlorations Belated 7th Birthday Celebration

Day 4 of STAMPlorations Belated 7th Birthday Celebration!!

Be sure and check out all the Creative and Inspiring Projects by our
very talented Stamp Girls using New and Old Products!

 Hello Spring Clear Stickers.

I used the 3rd monoprint pull from the New Leaf Prints 4 Slimline Stencil for my
card front.  You can barely make out the veins of the leaves,  but did
create a cool artsy background.

Next I used one of Monika's "Rectangle Flexi-Templates" to mask the center
of the background,  attaching template with masking tape.
Used a make up brush to blend Distress Oxide inks in the masked rectangle.

 Then stenciled the leaf using a Zig dark green pen and removed stencil.
  Next outlined the leaf and hand drew the stem with Staedler black pen.
  Outlined the frame with pen using a ruler.

Die cut the card front with CUTplorations "Crazy Double Running Stitch 
Rectangle Nesting Die". and added Clear Stickers "Hello, Spring " sentiment.

Popped up the card front with craft foam onto 100# card base and Done!
I loved using my New Leaf Prints 4 Slimline Stencil and 
New Rectangle Flexi-Template.

We would love to have you join our 7th Birthday Celebration.

  1. These designs look cool. I like the speckled look...

  2. Great use of the flexi-template -- beautiful card!

  3. This is terrific. Love how you made your background. Really pretty.

  4. This is lovely, Nancy. Outlining the leaf really makes it pop.

  5. First I love the leaf, then the crazy double stitch them!

  6. Such a beautiful card using earthy tones Nancy! This is such a YOU card! LOVE the third pull from stencil monoprint for the background. It just adds a little something to the background ... I agree this is a very artsy and fun card. xx

  7. wonderful outlining of your stencil Nancy, it really allows then to stand out :)

  8. I really love this leaf stencil. Everyone's coming out with products for slimline cards now that they're a fad. I love how this turned out with the monoprint, and then the overlay is very effective!

  9. That mono print background works so well, such a good idea to increase interest in the background whilst keeping it related to the main image, I love it xx

  10. Love the subtlety of the monoprint background! And such a beautiful leaf on the green panel!

  11. The third pull for your background piece looks fantastic. More beautiful blending. The leaf is the perfect focal point.

  12. HB Stamplorations! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration!

  13. Oh I love the artsy 3rd monoprint pull, Nancy! The ink blended rectangle almost looks like sponged vellum, creating a wonderful background for the stenciled dark green leaf. The black outline makes the leaf stand out. Well thought-out beautiful card, my friend! Hugs.. Hideko

  14. I love the Earthiness of this lovely card.
