How fun is this brand new, two part layered rose stencil?
One of the things I love most about being an Associate Designer for Rubbernecker is not just my ability to design dies that I know you will love but also that I get to try all the new goodies ahead of time. I could not WAIT to share this new two part Bold Rose stencil! It has such a sweet simplicity and its bold graphic design is going to allow it to pair with so many different styles. Take this card, for instance – the layered rose stencil with that embossing folder plus the die cut flower – it all just works so beautifully! I have linked all the new stencils in the new release below.
The Layered Rose Stencil
I know most crafters already know how to use stencils but I took a few step by step photos to show anyone new to paper crafting.
- Cut a white layer of cardstock and line up the top corner of the rose stencil to the top corner of the white layer.
- Secure the two together so they don’t move while applying the ink. Pro Tip: Masking tape works fine to secure the stencil and cardstock but I used my Ranger 12″ Make Art Station and magnetic rulers to secure mine. It is so much easier than using all that tape.
- Use a blender brush to apply the pink ink.
- Remove the rose stencil.
- Line up the leaf pattern stencil and secure it in place.
- Use a blender brush to apply green ink to the leaves.
The Flower and Leaves
I think of this Mixed Flower Stack die with all the different sized flowers as a “little black dress” kind of thing because it is so multipurpose, the shapes can work with just about any design – sort of like the layered rose stencil! – and if you don’t know what to use, you can always grab this.
- Cut the two different sized flower using white cardstock.
- Cut the leaves using green cardstock.
- Apply the pink ink to the flowers using the blender brush. Pro Tip: I colored the white flowers with the same ink as the stenciled flowers so they would be a perfect match.
- Place the three flower face down on the molding pad and roll the petals using a large stylus.
- Turn the flower face up and push down in the center with large stylus to form the flowers. Check out my Flower Shaping Video to see how I form my flowers. It show a different flower but it’s the exact process.
- Use glossy accents to attach the three flowers together. Make sure to offset the flower layers for a more natural looking flower.
- Cut the leaves off the stem and form them gently with your fingers.
Assemble The Card
- Emboss a piece of white cardstock with the bold rose folder. Note: I’ve had this embossing folder for years and I can’t remember the name or the company that made it. I liked that it was a match for the stenciled flowers.
- Use green cardstock to cut a 5.25″ x 4.00″ layer.
- Cut the flower stenciled layer and the embossed white layer to 5.00″ x 2.00″ and attach them to the green layer using ATG adhesive.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the green layer and attach it to the card base.
- Stamp the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock using green ink.
- Attach the sentiment layer to a green layer using ATG adhesive.
- Trim the sentiment layers to 5.00″ wide and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive to cover where the two layers meet.
- Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of the flower and attach it to the top of the card.
- Tuck the leaves under the flower and attach them using glossy accents.
- Finish by attaching the large white pearl in the center of the flower. Pro Tip: I like to secure the pearl it with glossy accents to make sure it stays in place. I don’t trust the adhesive on the back of the pearl to hold.

I have the other new stencils from Rubbernecker and I am playing with those and loving them so watch for more projects using them. In the meantime, you are going to want to get your hands on this layered rose stencil because the more I use it the more I love it and I am SURE I am not going to be the only person who loves this!
