CAS Stencil November Challenge


Welcome to the last challenge for 2019
at CAS Stencil!

This month's challenge is hosted by Linda.


Message from Linda
Are you ready for November's challenge?
Stencil monoprinting is a fun, and different way of using your stencils.  
Simply apply your inks or paints onto the actual stencil, spritz with a little water, then use the stencil to create fabulous backgrounds or amazing focal points for your cards.

    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!

      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!

      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!
