Stencil From a Die Cut Negative

Yesterday we once again had a snowy day so I worked with some supplies I had on hand to make a card. Earlier I had die cut out several candles for future birthday card designs and when I observed how neat the die cut negative looked I thought I would try using it as a stencil. So this is the result of that afternoon activity. I made a slimline card which seems to be all the rage now!



The candles are from a Stamp & Die Block Duo from Impression Obsession. The inks I used for the flame were Gina K. Designs Wild Dandelion and Tangerine Twist. The candles were colored with a Hero Arts Ombre Meadow rainbow pad. And the sentiment and confetti images were from the Sweet 'n Sassy stamps Bold Birthday set. I used blending brushes to add the color through the stencil. The card base and layers were pre-cut and I got them from The Paper Cut.

I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday, We have lots of sunshine today but it is still quite cold. At least it is not snowing. Take care and see you next time!

God bless, Verna

Astounding card with this design. It's a great way to do the slimline card too.

Your stencil made a great slim line. I love the shading from the ombre pad. We have the cold too but also snow and it is starting to ice up. Glad I'm not going out.

The negative turned into a super cute card for a birthday!! I have a drawer full of negatives just for this technique but your candles take the stage!! Don't you love it when you can get extra 'miles' out of the die!!

How beautifully your die worked out as a stencil! Fabulous card, Verna! I've been planning to use my clear cover cardstock to make some stencils from dies. This one is perfect!

Awesome!!!!! and you photographed it so well! I think those slimline cards are a pain in the butt to photograph them - especially for Instagram with their square format.....The main reason I stay away from them.....
