Make It Monday #329 - Creating Stencils From Die Cuts

Hello friends.  This week's Make It Monday challenge has Melissa showing us how to create stencils from our die cuts and make stunning backgrounds for our cards!  You can check out Melissa's GORGEOUS card and video right HERE.

I used the Shape Shifter's: Square and the Mix & Mat: Scallops dies to create my stencils to come up with this sympathy card:


I die cut the Shape Shifter's: Square twice to elongate it on my stencil, and then ink blended it with Green Parakeet.  I used the Mix & Mat: Scallops stencil just in the lower right hand corner with Amethyst Allure ink.  I stamped my sentiment from Penned Elegance lower on my stenciled rectangle and then added a frame using Bitty Big Green Parakeet DSP.


I attached both the stenciled rectangle and the frame to my Noted: Pinked A2 Vertical card base and then added my berries from Beautiful Berries: Spring.


I finished off my card with some white baker's twine and a few iridescent sequins.  This was a FUN technique and I really liked the blending of one stencil over another like Melissa did...that girl is so full of awesome ideas!!  :0)

Check out Melissa's lovely, lovely card and then play along...you can find it all right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
