Stencilling with Die-Cuts

Hi there friends. It's time to start a new CAS Mix Up Challenge!

Joanna is our host this month and she's challenging us to use a die-cut as a stencil.

I'm having a bit of a struggle with my Big Shot machine (I think it's on the way out!) not cutting the entire pattern, but luckily I had previously cut this amazing Hibiscus Frame from Simon Says, so I was able to make this card.

Die-Cut Stencil, Distress Inks, Mica powder and water, Die-cut, sequins & Stamping

I used make-up brushes to blend Distress Inks through the die-cut stencil. Then I splashed some water with a touch of mica powder of the panel.  When dry I stamped the sentiment and added the die-cut stamen, coloured with Zig Markers.

Die: SSS Hibiscus Frame
Stamp: Altenew



We are joined this month by the talented Ina and you can see her wonderful card and more inspiration from our Design Team over at the CAS Mix Up blog.

I hope you'll join us in this month's challenge!

  1. Such a pretty die cut to use as a stencil. Fabulous colours and a fun idea to pop the die cut stamen onto your beautiful flower x.

  3. It's so frustrating when those Big Shots start wearing out! I bought a new one and still have some dies that I have to struggle with. Anyway, I'm glad you had this gorgeous hibiscus already cut and you colored it beautifully! Love the font in the sentiment!

  6. Gorgeous hibiscus, Jenny! I love the colors, the way you ink blended, and the shimmery spatters! The sequins add interest and more shine to the flower.
    I hope Santa makes a special delivery and brings you a new Big Shot! :-)

  7. Beautiful ink blending thru your hibiscus die cut stencil, Jenny. I love how you added the water drops mixed with Mica for shine. Adding the die cut stamen adds just the right amount of dimension to your Gorgeous flower. TFS Hugs..Nancy

  8. What a great choice of die to use for your stencil Jenny. Beautiful blending and lovely sentiment stamp. I'm in the same boat as you. Think my poor CB is close to retirement as I had a hard time trying to cut through acetate. Should have just used card stock I think.

    1. Ha ha. I used to have a CB and once it broke in half and I banged it back together and it was fine! I donated it to a charity not long ago. I've just taken the plunge and bought a new BS!
