Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #264: Die Cut Stencil Shapes

This week at Papertrey Ink Melissa shows us a great technique involving uses die cuts as stencils. Check out her wonderful video here.

I knew immediately what die I wanted to use to participate in this challenge.  I used PTI's loop de loop II die and used Clarity Stencil brushes to apply classic craft ink over the die moving it repeated down the card to create a background.  I used spray adhesive to temporarily adhere the die cut to my card base. I think if I were to do this again I would just apply multiple borders and brush the ink onto the card base all at once. I love how the loop de loop die resembles the icing you might find on cookies.  I had soo much fun creating cookies with PTI's Sweet Holiday Wishes stamp set! I wanted to make my icing shiny so I applied UTEE to the die cut pieces and heat embossed.  I tried heat embossing with UTEE a whole sheet prior to cutting but didn't have much luck with that.  I wanted a plate to set my cookies on so I used a circle stamped with the veins of the leaves from PTI color pop Autumn and the berries from PTI's bells and boughs  to serve as my plate.   I wanted a different color other than the cookie colors for my plate but I think I chose too dark a color for my berries.  I scribbled on a white pencil to try to lighten the color but it still seems too dark.  The sentiment, cookies and holly are all from PTI's sweet holiday wishes set.  I added some wink of stella glitter marker to the word die cut to add some sparkle.  Oh and I used some stitched border dies to add some details to two edges of the card.
