Elegant Trio Stencil Set

Good Morning Everyone!

I have a special customer that has requested we do something in orange and yellow for her workshop this coming Saturday. So I decided to give the Elegant Trio Stencil Set a whirl.

Elegant Trio Stencil Set 002

This stencil is really fun to do and I think she will be happy (I hope so anyway) with trying a new product to incorporate the colors she wanted.

I used a texturz plate on the base of the card and the ticket corner punch on the image and layers behind it to generate some interest and not take away from the stenciled flower.  I used Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange (I know, I know …so not like me) and Old Olive. I also used the Itty Bitty Backgrounds to sprinkle in a bit of color.

I decided this card warranted a matching envelope too. So tell me what do you think…..is it workshop worthy?

The center of the flower is a secret for now. I will share that later this week.

Thanks for stopping by and as always…..

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

This card turned out great, Lee. As you so elegantly show us over and over, white goes with anything! ai love the skinny mats, they really compliment the beautiful coloring of the flower.

Very pretty card Lee. I didn't purchase that stencil set, but I guess I'm going to have to now because I really love this flower. Thanks for helping me spend my money! LOL!!!

Hi Lee - I could stay on your blog all day! Might just have to invest in some of the stencils. This one is beautiful. I really do enjoy your stamping art and because it brings so much sunshine into my life, I am sharing the Sunshine award with you. The details are on my blog which is http://southerncaliforniastamper.blogspot.com. Thanks for blessing my life with your work of heart. :)
