Die Stenciling with Yana Smakula
Hi friends! Happy Monday! Please join me in welcoming back the fantastic Yana Smakula to our blog as a guest today! She has used three of our exclusive dies (Balloon Bouquet, Floret Frame, & Bird of Roses) as stencils or masks to be the focal point of her trio of cards! You really could use any of your favorite die cut outs for this technique! I’m really loving her Doll Pink and Duckling color combination! It’s so fresh and springy!
Be sure to watch the video, and enjoy!
