Spellbinders FSJ Layered Embossed Stencil Background

 Hello Crafters! 

I hope you guys are having a great week. 
This week we are having an Indian Summer and it's AMAZING! 
I cannot even tell you how grateful I am for temperatures in the 60's after last weeks snow. 

Before we get to the card I just wanted to share Spellbinders is having an amazing sale with products up to 75% off. Head over to the Spellbinders Store to check out all the deals. 

Since I'm blessed with an Indian Summer I thought it would be the perfect time to share a floral fall card. When isn't the time for a floral card right? 
Right. 


You know I love one layer cards so I started there. I really wanted to use the stencil in combination with the stamp set so I decided to create a layered background using distress oxides, embossing and perfect pearls. 

I stamped and masked my flowers to create my focal point bouquet.  I needed a mask for every element I stamped to make sure they were protected while I did my ink blending. I decided to us Distress Oxides instead of Distress Inks because they dry back softer. I didn't want a brown I wanted a more subtle golden brown look. 


I wanted a little subtle coloring behind the bouquet so I lightly ink blended before I laid down my stencil. Once I was happy with that I laid down my stencil and laid down slightly darker color in random areas to create my honeycomb background. 



Before you move on to the next step make sure, I mean 100% percent sure, your background is dry. heat set it to be sure. test it with embossing powder. Make sure it'd dry ya'll. 

Then I stamped the hexagons included in the set randomly and heat set them in gold. To make it look a bit more random, and of course add some more shine, I spattered on Perfect Pearls in gold.  I colored up my images with copics and then stamped my sentiment. 
I wanted a slightly larger sentiment so I hand lettered a quick hello to go with my Sweet Friend sentiment to finish the card. 

You can watch the whole process in the video below. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!

So beautiful! �� I don't know where you live that you had snow, but I am in San Antonio, Texas and we have been sunny and in the mid-80's all week. We're pretty lame when it comes to real winter. haha haha When we get really cold weather, like scary cold, the city shuts down. The last time that we got snow (enough to build a snowman), I was a sophomore in high school. I just turned 51. haha haha Anyway, your cards are always beautiful! Have a great weekend! Come visit San Antonio. We're a little chubby, but we're nice. haha haha Marisela mariandmonsterd@yahoo.com

  4. Gorgeous card Kelly, I love the colours you used and the awesome background.
    Kids are mean indeed, you can't protect your own child from it unfortunatelly, the only thing we as parents can do is love them and tell them how great they are.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a great day.
