Creating Stencils with Die Cuts
Hello there, Creatives! It's Janette here today to share a little about stretching your dies by creating stencils. Dies can be pricey, so making the most of the investment makes my crafty heart smile!
To begin cut the Flower Garden Fancy Die from a masking paper or large full stick postie notes. Place mask onto A2 sized (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") panel of Hero Hues Arctic cardstock. Then ink blend with Mint Julep and Indigo, leaving a highlight in the middle for a glowing effect.
Carefully peel away masking and color in a few flowers and leaves with colored pencils. Be selective or color them all, your choice!
Die cut Hello Message in Hero Hues Dove White. Coat bottom half of Hello with liquid Precision Glue. I used one of those old triangle shaped makeup sponges (that's a blast from the past, right?!). Sprinkle on chunky Snowfall Glitter and then adhere sentiment to slightly trimmed top half of a card base. By trimming off just a smidge, the white strip across the bottom of panel from the back side of the card shows. A fun little surprise detail!
We are in the final week of the National Craft Month celebrations. The theme? Anything Goes! Participate for your chance to win prizes! You can find out more about the challenge HERE.
