WELCOME BACK! I have something a little different today to show you. As many of you know, I love using stencils for my cards. Often, I incorporate them into the background of my card, but in this project they are front and center! I’ve been eyeing the various layering stencil sets from Pinkfresh Studio so I recently splurged on several sets, including the Floral Print Circle and Argyle stencils featured today. And while I’m a big fan of Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks, I pulled out my Catherine Pooler Ink pads for something a little different.
Today’s project features:
- Floral Print Circle Stencil by Pinkfresh Studio
- Argyle Stencil by Pinkfresh Studio
- Inks by Catherine Pooler Designs
- Additional basic supplies linked in thumbnails below.
- Supplies linked with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
Step by Step for Floral Circle
- For the card base, cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110# cardstock to 4.25″ x 11″ and score at 5.5″ for a top fold card.
- Cut a piece of lavender cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ (I used Grapesicle Card Stock by MFT Stamps).
- Die cut lavender cardstock using the Stitches Die by Pinkfresh Studio. Trim piece to 3.5″ x 4.5″
- Cut a piece of yellow cardstock to .25″ x 5.5″ (I used Lemon Drop Card Stock by MFT Stamps).
- Cut two pieces of white cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and stencil designs as indicated below. NOTE: The Floral Print Circle and Argyle Stencils are both multi-part layered. To use, line up your cardstock with the guidelines on the stencil and ink blend the design. The stencils are numbered to indicate the order. I used the Catherine Pooler Designs ink listed below.
- Trim floral print stenciled paper with a circle die (I used the largest in the Standard Circles Large set by Spellbinders). Apply craft foam or foam squares to back for dimension.
- Trim the argyle stenciled paper to 1-5/8″ x 5.5″
- Stamp sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock and trim to fit. I used a sentiment from the Celebrate Today stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio stamped with Versafine Claire ink in Nocturne. Apply craft foam or foam squares to back for dimension.
- Assemble card elements as shown.

You could easily substitute Distress Ink for the Catherine Pooler inks in this project. I just liked the CP inks here because they are vibrant and the ink pads are really juicy, making them easy to blend.
So that’s all for me today. Hope you enjoyed today’s project. See you again soon!
