From the Heart Birthday

Yesterday I used this die cut fromPoppy Stamps for my card, seen here:

Today I decided to use it to make a stencil by die cutting the piece using 80lb card stock. I find by using card stock it makes it easier to control the stencilling, rather than dealing with a lighter stock.

Using my Stay-tion and the magnets along with my card base, I placed the die cut in place over my base. I have the magnets sitting on the frame portion of the die cut in four spots.

To stencil I am using my Atelier series of Inks in Goddess Green, Bee Sting Yellow and Marilyn Red along with my Life Changing Brushes. I wanted a fair amount of texture showing on the card so I was “messy” with my blending, especially within the heart area.

I used smaller sponge daubers, a damp paint brush and the blending brushes in the heart, which left me with the textures you see.

Once all the colour was added I removed the “stencil” and in my mini Misti I stamped my sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Tulip Red. I then added Nuvo Aqua Shimmering Pen to the leaf bottoms.

Using the :stencil card stock I did the interior of the card.

To do the heart I used a piece that was previously die cut but removed. I added the yellow and red inks and blended, then stamped the sentiment in my mini Misti using the same Tulip Red ink.

I made this card for a friend who has a February birthday, so the heart fits right in. Tomorrow I will do another card using this frame die, which has many uses.

I am also entering this in the CAS Mix Up Card February 2020 Challenge which is to stencil from die cuts. I used the stencil from die cut, stamped the sentiments and added embellishments via the Nuvo Shimmering Pen.
