Spellbinders: Creating a Your Own Stencil with Die Cuts

Hello Crafters! 

A few weeks ago I shared this card over on the Spellbinders Blog
It's definitely something different for me but I really enjoy when you get something unexpected don't you?  


I decided to use a die to make my own stencil. The Lovely Lilac die was perfect because it has a large shadow die and an intricate die. I used plastic packaging to create the stencil and then distress inked through it. 


After the ink blending I used my copic markers to add a shadow around the stenciled portions that gives it a really cool dimension even though the design is completely flat.



I cut a few of the intricate dies and colored those to match with my Copic markers. I adhered them over the distress inked areas. The sentiment was die cut several times and glued together so it would have some serious weight. 

You can watch the entire card come together in the video below 


I would encourage you to try this technique with dies you already have. The result was unexpectedly pretty!


I meant what I said folks. Make sure you create for you too. The process is just as important as the end result. :) 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  5. Great idea, never thought of using old packaging or acetate for a stencil. Love the outcome of the card. Thank you Kelly.

  6. Ridiculous! Even though I read that you had made and used a stencil, I still thought both parts of the flower were die cut! I love your shadowing skills, amazing.

  7. Beautiful!
    I haven't had very good luck making my own stencils with the stiff acetate packaging :( my Big Shot doesn't cut it all out. Have you discovered any tips?
