CAS Stencil October Challenge


Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Loll.

Check out the Top Picks from September's Baby Wipe challenge HERE.



Message from Loll
We all have stacks of patterned paper that's just waiting to be used.  Why not try stenciling over top to create a totally different look.  Use a softly coloured patterned paper and add drama with lots of colour or texture using your stencils.  Or use brightly coloured patterned paper, stenciled with light colours of pigment ink, texture paste, or heat embossing.
Lots of possibilities!

    CAS Stencil September's Top Picks


    We were so happy to see all of your lovely entries this month using a variety of techniques with baby wipes and stencils!  We are excited that you are always ready to jump in and try new stenciling design ideas along with us!

    Our Top Pick for September
    Lucie's card is perfectly CAS with lots of empty space included in her design.  We just loved the pink with touches of gold, the repeat of the hearts in both her large snowflake and stenciled panel!  

    Congratulations Lucie!

    CAS Stencil September Reminder


    Just under one week left for this challenge hosted by Julia! 




    Videos Tutorials:

    Acrylic paint, stencils and baby wipes:  (no video just a description below)
    (This technique is from a challenge by Annsforte3 over at Splitcoaststampers)
    Supplies:  acrylic paint, a brayer, stencils, and some baby wipes.

    1) First select a heavy cardstock and apply drops of several different colors of acrylic paint onto the paper.  Using your brayer, or something similar, roll the colors across your cardstock.

    2) Immediately place your stencil over the paint, then using a baby wipe gently swipe the baby wipe across the stencil, removing some of the paint. Reminder do not press down too hard so as not to tear your cardstock.

    3) Let the cardstock dry and use your creation as a background for your card or die cut a shape to use on your card!

    Please follow the challenge rules:
      • Cards only with stenciling, following monthly theme
      • CAS design (clean and simple) - definition on sidebar

    Message from Julia
    Hello CAS Stencil fans!  
    This month I am your hostess and I would like all of us to try using techniques where we use baby wipes with our stencils. I have a few different techniques on the topic linked or described below. 
    One uses Distress Inks, one uses Pan Pastels and one uses acrylic paint - but feel free to use another technique you may know about and share it with us!  It just has to involve baby wipes and stencils!

    Techniques:

    Acrylic paint, stencils and baby wipes:  (no video just a description below)
    (This technique is from a challenge by Annsforte3 over at Splitcoaststampers)
    Supplies:  acrylic paint, a brayer, stencils, and some baby wipes.

      CAS Stencil August's Top Picks


      Wonderful to see so many of you having fun with Sprays and your Stencils this month.
      Thanks so much for playing along and inspiring all of us with your fabulous creations.


      Our Top Pick for August
       Gundi's fantastic nautical CAS card, is a simple and fresh design, making her a clear winner this month - her clever use of two little die cut yachts where they appear to be buffeting about on her sprays/stencil sea background is quite creative and effective.

      Congratulations, Gundi!
