Stencil Girl guest blogger

The lovely ladies of Stencil Girls asked me to be a guest blogger this week, and I’m excited to share my post with you!

You can find the full tutorial for this super fun wooden box HERE on their site. Check it out- their stencils rock and I had a lot of fun creating this special project. I love layering paints and inks and this really was a joy to create from a simple $1 wooden box.

Have a wonderfully creative weekend!

Challenge: Anything Goes!

I may be off at CHA running around and finding the latest and greatest, but I’ve also got to pause and join in the current challenge!


For this card I stenciled  the Chevron with festive berries distress ink, and then I used glossy gel medium and gold paint with the Numbered stencil for some texture. Mounted onto some patterned paper, added some stickers, and we’re set!

Note: the Chevron and Numbered stencils, as well as all of Tim’s new stencils are available for pre-order now!

I’ll be back with more CHA coverage (booths, favorites, and more!) so be sure to stay tuned. In the meantime – why not join the challenge?
50dollar_voucher_600px Simon is, as always, offering a generous $50 voucher that will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries each week. Join us in stamping a project this week – and for your chance to win a $50 voucher you should hop on over and join in the challenge here.

ANYTHING goes – so go have some crafty fun!
