Do All Things With Love with Amethyst

Hello, Karen here with a page I have made using the absolutely stunning Amethyst collection – as purple is my favourite colour I couldn’t wait to get going with these. papers.

I was especially excited to try the Full Roses 6 x 6 Stencil as I could see the potential of creating beautiful inked corners on my project. I choose two green and two purple Kaisercraft inks – Orchid, Plum, Avocado and Green.

I started by cutting a piece of Snow Weave Kaisercard to 8 ins square. On the reverse of this (the smooth side) I used washi tape to hold my stencil in the top left corner, ensuring the top and left of the stencil were aligned with the edges of the cardstock. I used Cut n Dry to add the Orchid and green inks to the open roses, then aligned it with the bottom and right of the card and did the same.

Next I placed the detailed part of the stencil at the top left of my card and used the sponges and Plum and Avocardo to add the details repeating at the bottom right.

I then drew a half inch border, using a pencil, around the two plain corners and carried this around the flowers but with a much smaller gap.

I used a craft knife to remove the inside of the pencil line and added a piece of Gem behind it.

Next I took another piece of Snow Weave Kaisercard and splatterd it with three Kaisermists in Navy, Lavender and Tourquoise. I then added a rose corner to the top left and bottom right using the Full Roses 6 x 6 Stencil.

Then I took two pieces of Mistique and fussy cut all the roses. I started to build my page by adding the rose frame to the centre of my page, on Mounting Foam Dots, and then tucked the fussy cut roses underneath it at the bottom left and top right of my page – I used Mounting Foam Dots to lift some of the flowers. To the bottom of my frame I placed the phrase from the Flutter paper and a phrase taken from the Jewel paper and cut down slightly.

Finally I added my photo to the centre of the frame, tucking two corners underneath and two butterflies fussy cut from the Flutter paper.

I hope I have inspired you to try out the Full Roses 6 x 6 Stencil as it is such a lovely way to embellish your paper projects and I think it would look spectacular if used on a card.
