Using Alphabet Dies as Stencils Video

Hello!  Today I have a video about using alphabet dies to create stencils.  In the video I share two cards, one of which I've shared on my blog previously.  

Be a Light

This is the first card I created in the video.  I used the Brooklyn Alphabet Dies from Frantic Stamper to create a stencil for the card front and used Distress Oxide inks to color each letter.  The "be a" was added with an accessory word die set to finish off the sentiment.  I also used a paintbrush stroke to add highlights on the black & white patterned paper for some extra contrast and to tie it all together.

For this card I did the opposite of what I did earlier.  I die cut the sentiment out of the card panel and then popped it up with dimensional tape. Instead of using that piece as a stencil like I did in the previous card, it is part of my card and serves as the main sentiment.  The "you" is die cut with Frantic Stamper's Handwritten Love You die that I adhered to the top of the panel.   I created the rainbow background with Distress Oxide inks and flicked it with water to create the water spots. 

Thank you for visiting today!  Have a great day!
