Stencil card with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Stenciling it. Are you in love with using stencils too or are you wanting to try them? Join in, and share your stencil it project.

Stencils are besides stamps my favorite tools to work with. They can be used in so many different ways and also with lots of mediums. For this card, I didn't even use a single stamp because I had enough interest created with the stencils and the Tissue Wrap background.


For this card I've used the Simon Says Stamp Diamond Circles stencil along with black colored Embossing Paste and I used the Pool Paint Dabber with the Sunset Sunrise stencil. See below how I made my card in a time-lapse video.

There are so many other ways to use stencils. You can emboss with it by using it as an embossing folder, and you also can stamp with ink by applying it to the stencil and stamping it on your surface.


To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

If you use instagram add #sssmchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
