Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Hello Friend


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’
