Stencils - Product Review

Good morning Carolyn here with a Product Review of two stencils I recently purchased, hoping that it would make a cute background mat....

TIP:  don't become discouraged with your stenciling results, keep trying and trying; and you know, the ones that you think are hideous, they can be used later for some scrapbook page.

 
Mini Flutterby

6x6 Stencil - Butterfly background designed by Jamie for TheCraftersWorkshop.com  but I believe I purchased my stencils from a Facebook group: Lone Wolf Designs Discount Craft Supplies.

Supplies used:
  • Butterfly Stencil: Mini Flutterby by Jamie Echt (The 6x6 Stencil can be used for card-making, Mixed Media, Paper-Arts, Sponging, Spraying, Spritizing, Chalking & more).
  • Blue acrylic paint
  • Watercolor paper
I laid the stencil on a sheet of watercolor paper and using a stipple brush (??) applied the acrylic paint all over, coming up with the results shown in the photo.  I let it sit to dry, and than trimmed it to fit the front of a card at a later date.

 

Mini-Snowy Treescape

I am showing three results of stenciling this image-stencil, and to be quite honest, I am not very happy with any of the results.  I used Acrylic paper, cardstock, and canvas covered paper with the results shown above.  I like the canvas-covered paper as the results were darker and may-be more vibrant.  Definitely will not use cardstock - too blah.  The 3rd one I believe is acrylic paper and it's ok.   This stencil could possibly be used in a mini-album or a 5x5 card with a snowman added to it.

Once you find your coloring median, especially for cardstock,  you can find lots of possibilities for the stencils.

Thank you for stopping by and allowing me to share my creations with you.  Happy crafting day to you all.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
