There's nothing thriftier then finding new ways to use products you already have! Today's post is a new spin on your current die cut machine or punches - using them as masks or stencils! For this project I used my silhouette (because I have thousands of shapes saved for it) but any die cut machine will work - circuit, epic, cuttlebug, big shot , etc.
I really like the silhouette for this technique because they have all sorts of backgrounds you can cut out (and download instantly!). I used this diamond pattern by first spraying with one color, moving the stencil to cover the sprayed portion and spraying with a second color.
Look around your house for every day objects you may be able to do this technique with - doilies make a lovely mask for a spray! Or cut out your own shapes - remember when you used to make paper snowflakes as a kid? Try making them and using them as a mask! So many possibilities!
