Hi Pad Scrappers!
Polly Liana here with a quick and fun tutorial about how to use cutting files to make stencils for hybrid projects. I am very fond of the amazing cutting files here at the pad but they’re not just for layering in digital. I recently used some spring cutting files to create some versatile and elegant stenciled cards. Here’s the fun product I used from Scrapping with Liz:
I just fell in love with this beautiful springy flowers. I downloaded the product and imported the files I wanted into my cutter’s digital editing program. I then resized it to fit on a 4.25×5.5 card and cut it out of stencil material.
First, I used the flower itself. I placed the stencil on the card and used several colors of Distress Oxide ink to blend around the stencil.
When I removed it, here’s what I got:
Cool, right? Next, I wanted to use the negative image to get another type of result. I used contact paper to lift the image in one piece and transfer all the tiny pieces to my card.
Then, I blended the inks into the spaces to create a different image.
I also used the beautiful rose image too!
Hope you’ll try this very easy way to create stenciled cards. There are many different kinds of cutting files available at the Pad, so give it a try!
Have a great week,
