CAS Stencil April 2020 Challenge


Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Cathy!


Message from Cathy
Hi everyone, gilding flakes come in a gorgeous array of colours and can really add shimmer and shine! You can apply them with double sided adhesive tape, tacky when dry gel or embossing powder, or glue that is tacky when dry. Just remember to keep fans off and no heavy breathing!

Videos Tutorials:
Gilding Flakes with Stencils by Crafting While Caffeinated (11:25) - using tacky when dry gel medium.

How to apply Gilding Flakes with Duo Stencils by Neat & Tangled (10:48) - using flitter glue applied with a brush (great tip) and spreading tiny amounts of flakes with her fingertips.

Gilding the Funky Foliage by Clarity Stamp (18:31) - flakes through a stencil onto double sided sticky sheet, if you have time it's a good laugh too! Think you'd need a fairly robust stencil too, not a delicate one.

    • CAS design (clean and simple) - definition on sidebar

    CAS Stencil March 2020 Top Picks


    A big thank you to everyone who joined my Heat Embossing challenge.
    It was lovely visiting everybody and seeing what you all made and I hope you all enjoyed doing this technique!.
    Our gallery looked amazing again this month!


    Our Top Pick for March
    Greta's stunning sparkly embossed Dahlia in it's soothing colours was a definite hit with us here at CAS Stencil.  The addition of the same sparkle embossing to the bold die cut sentiment made for a perfect CAS card.  We loved it!

    Congratulations, Greta!

    CAS Stencil March 2020 Challenge


    Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Viv!


    Message from Viv
    My very first time hosting and since coming onto the DT,
    I have learned that Stencils are not just about inks and sponging!
    Use your stencils instead of stamps and heat emboss to produce some lovely classy cards!
    I hope you will join in this month and share your makes with us. x

      CAS Stencil February 2020 Top Picks


      Working with foils can be challenging, so we were thrilled to see all the beautiful cards in the February gallery! There are various techniques using foil and it was great to learn some of them in the video tutorials as well as from each other. Thanks to all who joined in the fun...we really enjoyed seeing your creations!

      Our Top Pick for February

      We really love your card, Mac! Your layered stenciling was the perfect way to showcase the elegance of the foiled flourish and the shimmer on your glazed flower is just beautiful! Adding to the ‘WOW Factor’ of this card is the striking color palette and lovely CAS design! Amazing photography to capture all that fabulous shine, too. Congratulations, Mac!

      Congratulations, Mac!

      Using foil with stencils is a fun and unique way to add sparkle and shine to your cards. You can achieve this look with or without a laminator, using transfer gel or adhesive. Feel free to check out the video tutorials and get inspired by our creations...have fun!
