I just bought some Nuvo Glimmer Paste. This rabbit hole keeps getting deeper.

Also, thank you everyone for all the great stencil recommendations. I've saved quite a few for later. I have to space out my purchases a little and I just ordered 7 stencils. Like I said before, this could be a problem.

Yup, this forum is definitely enabling!!

Have you seen Jennifer McGuire's video using stencils and baby wipes? I had so much fun with it!

Use it up quickly or else store it in an airtight bag/container to help extend its life. That's the big problem with pastes, some of them dry out fast. But the Nuvo one does have such a lovely soft buttery texture.

It’s a great technique! I didn’t like two so used them to die cut some Tim Holtz wildflowers from and swooned.

Here’s a version that doesn’t need a die cutting machine. No raised texture, but removal of ink using stencils. It in a Distress Oxides class when they first came out. It’s simple!

1. Blend Distress Oxide onto white cardstock. You can use any number of colors. We used two.

2. Build up more color - no matter how much you put on. Really. Layer colors over colors if you like. You want a good heavy layer of color(s). Our instructor walked around and when someone thought they were done, she’d say, “Add more color!”

3. Place stencil on the background.

4. Lightly spritz with water and dab off with a baby wipe with stencil still in place to remove color. Removing just the top layer will reveal the color underneath or if just one color, will whiten it - without getting down to the cardstock - if you applied enough ink.

We used Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. Then we blended on a bit of regular Distress Walnut over parts. Since regular Distress is translucent, it just added depth and you could see the pink and orange through it. You don’t have to use it.

We initially applied the color so it faded to white in a top corner. White space is A Good Thing for contrast and to rest the eye.

Cards by Cara, that was a great video. Thanks for sharing. I follow her on Youtube, but I often skip videos for techniques I don't use. Since I just started stenciling, this was new to me. Now I have to buy an embossing mat.

bjeans, that sounds like a fun technique. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Thanks for the tip. I just put my glimmer paste in a baggie. I hate it when things dry out right when I want to use them.

Thanks for the tip on storing open embossing paste in a zip lock baggie. I have way too many products that dried out after just one use. Even with the lids on, some products dry out. The worst were my Tim Holtz Crackle paints...argh.
I haven't even opened my embossing paste jars yet, but they are several years old so I really hope they are still intact.

Quick question. How do you store your stencils?




I store my stencils in page protectors inside a binder.

I am a cardmaker/papercrafter since 2001.
For the past 6 years, wehave had a very successful business creating cookie stencils.
I use them for both cookies and cards/scrapbooks... I have customers who use them for etching glass & more.
This is neat to see!

What is the difference between a stencil and a mask?

Good tip on Murphys oil soap! Thanks! And on the baggies. I get so much great info on SCS!

So far drying out for me is mostly the mousses; I guess because it is like they are whipped and maybe have some air in them to start? There was a packaging issue too at one point.

The other product I dont like is Viva glitter paste. On my samples after it dried it just broke apart badly. The Nuvo is holding up nicely. Also Gina K's glitz glitter gel. Both are very color rich which I like and dont shed the glitter.

The old classic is Dreamweaver pastes. No glitters. Solids. Thinner too so easier on thin stencils. They do make a crackle that will crack on purpose when it dries as a texture look. But cracking and literally breaking and falling off like Viva are different things.

Brenda-this was the simplest way to answer that I found.

A mask is basically the reverse of a stencil. Rather than being a piece of paper, plastic or metal with a design cut out of it, a mask is the piece that has been cut out. Instead of creating a design or pattern it creates a negative image - the reverse of a stencil

Does that make sense?

Unfortunately some companies call both stencils. It can be confusing.

Here is a fast vid-Balzar designs them.
