I was scrolling Pinterest one day. That’s all i need to say, right? But a card by Colleen Magness caught my eye. She shared a video demonstrating the die stenciling technique. So fun! I had to try it for myself. In case, you haven’t seen it, I’m sharing my interpretation of her technique.
Blessings of Home Die Stenciling Technique
This is how it works:
- Choose a stamp set with a die. Flower sets generally work well. Here, I use Blessings of Home. (Find it on page 75 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. ) The Nature’s Prints stamp set also works well. See a sample of that card below.
- Die cut the flower image. It helps to use Thick Basic White card stock.
- Stamp the flower image on your card front. (I used a die cut from the new Deckled Rectangle Dies.)
- Lay the stencil over the top of the flower.
- With a blending brush, apply ink to the image within the stencil portion. I used the same color ink for both. (Blackberry Bliss)
- Remove the stencil.
- Cool technique, right?
You can then add your own Designer Series Paper, sentiment, and embellishments. Here, I added used a piece of patterned paper from the Design a Daydream 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (have a party and you could earn this free), a sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set, White Seam Binding, and Pearl Basic Jewels colored with Black Berry Bliss Stampin’ Blends.
See the card below for a card that uses a Pool Party color scheme in conjunction with the die stenciling technique.
