stencil love

For the longest time I didn't understand the purpose of stencils in the card making world. I had no desire to ever own let alone use one…boy was I ever wrong!!

While I was perusing blogs the other day and came across this post on Jennifer McGuire's blog, I had a free moment (which seem to be a little sparse now that the kids are home from school) to try it out! Got to say I'm a fan!! What a fun and easy technique that gives so much depth to a project!! Make sure you head on over and watch the video!!

I now have a good collection of stencils piling up in my craft studio that I love!! They are so many wonderful uses for them! I strongly suggest getting one and giving it a try!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  1. I am so in love with this card! What inks did you use and who makes that congrats die? You have a wonderful blog!!! :)

  2. Thank you so much!! High praise! I love your work too!
    As for the supplies (sorry I didn't list it, get distracted by kids most days).
    First I used a white craft ink from Wplus9, shifted the stencil over and then used distress inks (peeled paint, broken china and dusty concord). As for the congrats die, she's an oldie but a goodie!! its from Provo Craft - Cuttlebug - Embossing Folder and Die Cut Combo - Everyday Greetings

  3. OH I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! I must try this out! :)
