The Funstampers March Meeting!

What fun! I got to demo how to easy it is to use SU's stencils at our monthly meeting! Wow... we had a great time, showing off our skills, visiting with friends, eating yummy sweet rolls from Sizzlers... (recently remodeled and soooo pretty) and celebrating Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Top Sales!
Here's some ideas for using stencils!

For sure use removable tape and tape your stencil to your paper. You can use a dauber and cover the stencil with your ink. In this photo I am using SU's Craft Very Vanilla, which goes on smoothly and looks great.
Here is what is looks like after you remove the stencil. This is the Kind Thoughts Brocade Stencil

For this one... all I did was spray on our beautiful shimmer paint, (add alcohol, shake and spray!) Such a glamorous result!
Stampin' Up! offers so many stencils to use... on paper, cloth and wood like your walls, boxes, and frames! Check out this video done by Shelli Gardner and see how simple it is to use the flourish to decorate your whole wall!
