Default What have you used stencils on?

Please show me how you have incorporated your stencils into your artwork. I bought some at a show a couple of years ago and they have sat untouched because I can't remember what I was supposed to do with them. I have some brass stencils, a light box and some pastels, and some dreamweaver(?) paste.... Help! I don't remember how I was supposed to use them and am sure I was thrilled with it when I purchased that handy little set of stuff!

I don't have personal samples to share but there are lots of tutorials and examples on the Internet.............

............I got over 1600 hits on YouTube when I searched on 'dreamweaver stencils'. This should be a good refresher and enough new techniques and ideas to keep you busy for years LOL

Here's a tutorial on dry embossing using a light box:

I don't use my stencils with a lightbox anymore but I do use them with paint, spray mists, ink daubers, etc. Here are some tips using embossing paste:

Have a plastic container with water and a good cleaner like Simple Green so you can immediately wash your stencil. Other wise the paste is really hard to get off your stencil.

Lay stencil on the cardstock and hold in place with post-its. Put the post it on the bottom of the stencil first as this will be the last one you take off. The sticky part of the post it should be half on the stencil and half on the cardstock.

Apply embossing paste with a palette knife (I use a small cake decorating palette knife)
Apply the paste like icing a cake and make sure the paste is smooth (Unless you want a bumpy finish)

gently peel off the post its leaving the bottom post it in place. Slide the cardstock to the edge of desk and very gently bend the cardstock & stencil over the edge of the desk. The stencil will pop-up off the paper so you can grab the stencil and gently lift it off the cardstock.

Set the cardstock aside - drying time is a couple of hours

Scrap off any remaining paste on the stencil and put it back in the jar. Wash your stencil with the Simple Green solution. I usually let mine soak a few minutes.

It may take you a couple of tries to be able to remove the stencil and not smudge the paste, but the post its really help. Good Luck!

You can also use your stencils and silicone embossing mats to dry stencil cs using your die cutting machine. Just put your stencil on the bottom, then cs, then embossing pad. Sandwich as normal and run it through. I have a No More Shims pad from ScorPal that I use with my Big Shot; the results are fantastic, although I think the metal stencils produce a crisper image. Just be aware that you will get an edge impression - which is sometimes desired.

I still love my stencils. This is a card that I made recently using a brass stencil and light box. I also use the method using my cuttlebug and spongy mat but feel more confident doing it the 'old' way. IC379 Queen Isabel Roses by Mrs Noofy - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I've tried lots of techniques with my stencils. Here are a few:

Coloured first with inks, then paste added, and then glitter:

Glittered Candles by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Paste added first, then coloured afterwards with inks:

CCC11 Stencilled Christmas by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Paste first, then coloured with mica powder:

CCC11 Stencilled Snowflake by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Paste first, then coloured with colour glitter:

CCC10 Holly Flourish by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

No paste at all - double sided tape and glitter for this one:

Glittered Poinsettia by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

A really different technique using the stencil with a Cuttlebug:

Hope that gives you some ideas!!
