Floral Silhouette

I wanted to do more than use this stamp as a sihouette image so I stamped it using versafine smokey grey and then coloured the image using crayola pencils,

I cut the stamped and coloured image using Spellbinders oval nestabilities and then using green cardstock I cut a larger oval and adhered my image to it,

I took some blue cardstock and punched all 4 corners using an EK Success punch, I then cut some white cardstock to a size which fit comfortably under the punched corners and then embossed it, next I added my grosgrain ribbon, attached my image with mounting foam and a sentiment using Stampin up Short and Sweet stamps, finished off with a couple of pearls and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly with a bit of glitter added and 3 pearls to its body.


  1. very nice the way you used the silhouette stamp! i'm curious about the white background piece. did you wet emboss in white? or dry emboss with a stencil or folder? i really like that particular look but haven't seen a folder like that.

  2. Hi Sandy,

    I used white cardstock and QuicKutz embossing folder called "Plants" I didn't dampen the cardstock I just run it through the cuttlebug as is, I might add the QuicKutz embossing folder do leave a nice deep etched image,

    Thanks for taking a peek and leaving a message.
