How to Use a Rotating Stencil – SO Easy!

Today I am showing you how to use a rotating stencil to get multiple colored flowers all over your card!

Learning how to use a rotating stencil is so easy and once you see this I am pretty sure you will be adding these new Spin Around Stencils from Rubbernecker to your cart. These innovative stencils allow you to create multiple flowers all over your projects in different colors and, with the ones from Rubbernecker, even different flowers! These stencils are designed so that every time you turn the stencil, you fill in spaces on your surface with more images which you can do in different colors with each turn. Both different flower styles work together so you can mix them together.

The Rotating Stencil

I made this short video just to show how easy it is to play with.  I chose to use four bright colors but I think it would be pretty using just one.

Assemble The Card

This was a fast and easy card to put together.  I kept it fairly simple to allow the flowers to be the main focus.

  • Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the lower card base using Nocturne ink.
  • Use all three of the Borders #2 dies to cut the flower layer, purple and white layers. 
  • Use ATG adhesive to attach the three layers together.  
  • Attach the three layers to the card base using ATG adhesive along the top edge of the layers and with pieces of mounting tape along the bottom edge.  Pro Tip:  Attaching the top of the layers flat to the card base creates a more finished appearance for the card.  The popped up bottom sections creates interest and dimension.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the Tiny Flower Buds and form them using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Finish the card by attaching the tiny flowers to the center of each flower using glossy accents.
