Jeez, April! Are you feeling ok? What a nicely simple challenge. No twists that I can find.

Good blog! Very clear to understand including the dates for playing.

Perfect timing for me since I just took the Stenciled class. I can KEEP stenciling instead of letting it go by the wayside.

Y'all might want to check out Marshia's (Eagertoretire) Feb tag on that swap's blog. She did 'double stenciling' by layering them before applying the color.

Verry interesting!

Hey Looser, thanks for the gallery plug! LOL

I've been anxious to use a Spellbinders stencil I bought recently and this was just the opportunity (shove) I needed. Now that I have used the stencil, I'm not sure I like it as much as I thought I would. I may have to play with it some more. OH No!

Got this one done. I was really inspired by Eagertoretire's card, and I used a similar technique. I had not even unwrapped that stencil before so it was great to see it finally used.

Here is my entry. I combined this with "A Little of This and Little of That" as it was a natural combo for me.

Although I wished I had done a better job with the stenciling technique (need more practice and maybe a better tool to apply the paste) the technique is fun. You apply your paste, and then embossing powder. Allow the paste to dry (you don't have to but if you don't it may bubble up) and then heat emboss. Lots of possibilities with that one.

Thank you so much for hosting this fun challenge!

My comments aren't showing up, so I will try and comment on them all later but I'm loving everyone's projects!

I have one almost done. I've only messed it up about 4 times already .

I just watched a video from Jennifer McGuire where she used glitter with stencils. I love the look she got!!

I used a stencil on a second card today that I combined with Mask Your Stamp and Embellish This.

Very simple use of stenciling here, but it was really effective!

Mines done, just need to take pics and upload.

I really struggled with that stinkin paste! I think I was a bit heavy handed with it. I gave up on using it and just used gelatos instead with my stencil.

I did a scrapbook page for this one. I used a tree stencil that I had never opened and sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang mist on it. I also sponged some darker ink around it too. It added to the distressed look of my page. I stamped a long border stamp on the patterned paper also. Fun challenge!

Finally finished.

Had a couple of mishaps while making this. I had to reposition a piece paper and ripped the white cardstock when pulling it up. Luckily, I could cover it with a photo. I also ran out of thread on my bobbin while sewing.

I used a butterfly punch to create a die cut. I used the die cut as a stencil to color in 3 butterflies that I stenciled onto the kraft cardstock card. I then added the die cut butterflies and the “die cut stencil" I created to the cream cardstock. I then stamped a butterfly and colored it in and then added the hello sentiment. I then inked the edges of the cream cardstock and adhered it to the kraft card stock card.

I have more materials on my desk for this challenge than any other as I couldn't make up my mind.

I am enjoying doing more with stencils and finding different mediums to use.

Phew! I'm glad I got a chance to do this challenge, and just in time!
I've been wanting to use a faux postage stamp and stencil and my stencil brushes. Just last weekend I went to a Stamp Fest and watched Just For Fun demo their stencils and brushes for a refresher.

Thanks for the fun challenge!
