Hi, I am back today with two fall cards that I really enjoyed creating. If you have not discovered the joy of taking your die-cuts and making your own stencils, you should certainly give it a try. I shot a very amateur video showing what I did, but sadly my blog doesn’t support videos unless I upgrade. What I love best about the leaf stamp and die-cut stencil is that the stencil is bigger than the stamp and I really like the look of it. What do you think?
Here is a close up! And you can also see my inlay die-cut too.
The above card is for the Double D Challenge where the word is Leaves plus they have a mood board to inspire us.
The card below is the first card I made with this technique and it’s for the Addicted to CAS-Leaf challenge.
Card Details: Stamp and leaf die is from Stampin Up and since retired. The hello is from The Crafters Workshop. The Friend and I am so Thankful for…are from SU as well. I used oxide inks as my medium. I just love my new Postal Dies from Hero Arts! I did have to make a half mask of my leaf for the CAS card.
Now I am looking at all my dies in a brand new light! I am off to see what else I can make with a die-cut stencil! Have a very creative day! Nanc’

You are so clever Nancy! I love the effect of the stencilled leaf background with the slightly smaller stamped leaf outline over the top. Off to look at my dies carefully…! Thank you for coming back to play with us again at Addicted to CAS. Vicky x
