Balzer Designs Blog Hop | Lotus Blossom Stencil

Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is back with new stencils (that I am loving, of course) and she’s asked me to take part in a blog hop featuring the Lotus Blossom stencil that she designed for The Crafter’s Workshop.

First, I created this card which utilizes all four of the stencil designs + a Jillibean Soup wooden accent.

Here is a video showing how I utilize the (12″) stencil:

What I like about this stencil is that you can layer it, use part of it, create a dimensional flower, and really do so much with it! I used a pink + navy + gold color palette with mine because I’m just SO into those colors together right now. LOVE! Here is the layout I made with it – I felt like this flower design would be fabulous with my Hawaii photos:

I added in some stickers & the puffy flower word (that are older/no longer available that I can find) – and very little else was needed! Love when I can use paint + stencils + other color mediums as the main accent on my page!

I completed my page with some glossy accents to accent my flowers (hard to see in pics – but it adds a bit of accent). More importantly – it was just a whole lot of fun to play with!!
