Friday Die Day

Hello friends

If you've been following us on social media you will have seen
the new stencils we are stocking, we've been sharing the new designs everywhere!
We feel very privileged that right now we are the only outlet for these.
For this week's Friday Die Day I thought I would combine the Tree stencil
with one of my favourite Spellbinders dies - 

I placed the stencil onto a piece of white card and fixed down with removable tape.

(Optional: it is possible to emboss with these stencils through the Platinum.
The sandwich I used was cutting plate, stencil, card, card shim and another cutting plate.
I would recommend you test a combination of shims as machines differ,
my Platinum 6 did not need an extra shim, possibly because it is a newer machine).

I selected a script stamp, I find stamps with a foam backing work really well
and stamp onto a softer surface, that way you can really get the stamping into 
the open areas. 

This stamp isn't quite wide enough but that's not a problem,
just stamp in the missed areas, do not worry about aligning either, I didn't!

Keeping the stencil in place I've gone over with a blending tool and distress ink.

The reveal! 

I then die cut Ornamental Arch from white card and used the same colour 
distress ink - Walnut Stain.

Using my E-Z Runner Grand - 
(I love this, so much adhesive and the refills last ages!)
I affixed the stencilled image onto two mats - teal card and silver foil card.

Placed one die cut across.

Onto the arch die cut affixed 3D Foam Squares to the reverse.
Also die cut my signature little flowers in matching teal card :) 

Positioned the arch die cut.

Finishing touch, adding the little flowers with gemstones to the middle
and a tiny 'Thanks' sentiment.

And here's an image you may like to Pin :)

Take care friends, have a smashing weekend.

This is gorgeous I love how you’ve stamped and inked through the stencil
I hope you don’t mind but I might have a little “play” in Serif and see if I can come up with something similar to be able to use behind the die cut
