Easy Die Cutting Techniques...Stencilling with Dies

Hello Crafting Friends!

Sharing a card with you using dies as stencils, one of the techniques taught in the Altenew Easy Die Cutting Techniques class.

I've used the leaf dies from the Beautiful Day die set to create a stencil, through which I've applied Altenew Frayed Leaf ink with a mini ink blending tool. The flower is stamped with the Beautiful Day stamp using Altenew Lavender Fields, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet Crisp Ink.

I then die cut the stencilled base with a Hero Arts Rectangle basics die and die cut the flower with the matching Beautiful Day die.

Two Hero Arts dies in varying sizes created the rectangle frame cut out of glitter card stock. 'Everything' is cut with the Halftone Everything die from white card stock and silver card stock.

Strips of purple card stock covered with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen bookend the frame along with touches of sparkle on the flower. Pretty Pink Posh confetti arranged around the bloom add a little more shine๐Ÿ˜Š, I love shiny, sparkly things ๐Ÿ˜€.

This project is a submission for the Altenew Educator Certification Program.

Thanks for taking a look :)!
