We’ve been learning tons of amazing ways to incorporate stencils into our paper crafting projects and card making in our free class over at StampNation:

Technique Toolbox: creative stenciling

I know I’ve learned a ton and I can’t believe all the amazing and creative cards the members have been sharing.  I’ll talk a bit more about that in the video.

This video is a typical CP video… I start with one idea, then we take a twist and a turn and end up someplace completely different.

View the video to see…

So many cool effects you can acheive with Double Stenciling.  You can even try it with Embossing Paste…sponge on ink, move your stencil and spread your EP over the stencil.  Depending on what type of EP you use, you’ll get many different looks.  Try it!  Experiment and have fun!

Even if you end up with something you don’t love (like I did with my Kraft card), you are growing and learning and having fun!

These cards sneak peek the “Young at Heart” stamp set and the “Birthday Wishes” dies from the upcoming Young at Heart Stamp of Approval Collection.

This weekend, we’ll start the full on sneak peeks and every day I will share a new video with you showing you the stamps and dies and stencil that come in this box.

Double stenciling 2 I ended up going VERY simple on this card….but I would love to add an embellishment.

What would YOU add to it?  Leave a comment below, I always love hearing your ideas…you always have something to share and teach me!

    so Cool!!! I love the 3d effect you get with the double stenciling.

    The blue looks like a great masculine card. Love the technique, and will try it out soon. Thanks Catherine !!!!

    Love the second card colors. Can see the ghosting better. I havent done that yet but will make a great ” next” project.

    I absolutely love this technique! I have never used a stencil before but I have decided I must make one with my Brother Scan n Cut and try it out!!!! Thank you so much for showing us this.

    Fabulous video Catherine. I find it cool that you show us how even the best can have cards that aren’t what they wanted it to turn out like and changes are good. Loved that in the end you adapted the first one and finished it off. Thanks for such a fun class.

    Catherine – the Blue on Craft would make a good masculine birthday card – – so it could stay as is. however — you showed off the little leaning cake tower in a previous video – – cut that image out in cork – – see what that looks like. It would still work as a masculine Bday card!

    love the technique

    I’ve been taking a few classes at Online Card Classes, and I recently finished His & Hers. I can’t help but think that’s what this looks like. I love how changing the colors changed the feel of the card from masculine to feminine. Do you know a set of twins with a birthday coming? lol

  • June January 30, 2016, 12:43 pm

    I think they are both COOL. The first one, although not your favorite, I think the dimension on it is amazing….it really looks 3-D on the video…cool

  • Maggie B January 31, 2016, 6:05 pm

    Hi CP ~ These are such awesome cards; love the double stenciling and the 3D-like effect it gives. This technique works so well for either a masculine or feminine card, depending on the colors you choose. Thanks so much for sharing.

    That ghosting looks terrific on either card and I love the circle ‘sprays’ you added to the second one.
