I am dreaming of Tulips!

I am sooo loving the stencils right now. You know how you go in phases? Well this is one of the phase things! There are just so many options with them.
Here is the other recent technique "Quite a Pear"  I share earlier.

I am going to share with you the embossed image of a tulip that was done using the Cuttlebug! Once you have created the layers for your machine and run it through, the result is a great embossed image.

So here is the card and the very easy steps to recreating it!

Step 1 Dry emboss the image of the tulip using the Cuttlebug Machine from Cricut.

Step 2 Leaving the stencil in place add color using a stencil brush. I used PanPastels by ColorFin. They have a rich color and go on smooth with very little pressure.

Step 3 Layer the image on coordinating card stock. The base layer was cut then folded in half using the Score-It-All.

Step 4 Use the punch of your choice to add the decorative edge to the card and finish assembly of the card!

Again, I love and am obsessed with the stencils right now. This stencil and the pear stencil were both provided by Dreamweaver! They have, in my opinion, the most versatile and elegant stencils on the market.

Check out my blog and the links there to see more with great stencils! Also, if you will be near Topeka, KS, October 1st and 2nd, check out the Memory Expo. There is a link on my blog to check that out as well!
