(Video) Technique: Combining Background Dies and Stencils

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m over at Heffy Doodle with a new video demonstrate a fun and easy technique!

In today’s video I share a fun idea for stretching your stencils and background dies by combining them together to create fresh new backgrounds!

Technique: Combining Stencils and Background Dies

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I die cut A2 panels of white and pink cardstock with the Quilted Heart Background Die. Next I ink blended over the panels using the Steady Heart Stencil. 


I simply blended Candied Apple Distress Oxide on the pink panel but to create the rainbow of hearts on the white panel, I used painters tape to mask off diagonal sections on the stencil and then blended with a nine Distress Oxides, one for each section. 


After I ink blended the panels I then die cut a window in the center of each panel using a die from the Fancy Nancy Frames Dies. I saved the pink center but discarded the center for the white panel. 

Next, I stamped several images from the Quill You Be Mine Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I then copic colored all the images and then die cut them out with the matching dies. 

Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Quill You Be Mine Stamp Set onto the pink panel with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide. I also white heat embossed a second sentiment onto black cardstock for the second card. 


Next, I assembled the pink card by first adhering a white A2 panel onto an A2 top-folding red card base. I then adhered the pink panel onto top. Next, I adhered a circle of craft foam to the backside of the center circle and then adhered both on to the card. I then added my images with foam squares. 


I then assembled the rainbow card by first adhering a panel of light blue cardstock onto an A2 top-folding white cardbase. I then adhered the rainbow panel and sentiment with tiny foam squares. I then finished the card by adhering my image to a craft foam layer die cut with the matching die and then adhering the two inside the window on the card front. 

I hope you enjoyed!! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
