Use Your Stash Series: Stencil Projects with Video Tutorials

Cards and Projects with Stencils and Video Tutorials

Stencil Inspiration

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a post that explores stencils by gathering together a series of projects and videos. I love to be able to see the same supply used on multiple projects so I can get inspired to pull out that bit of craft stash and get creative. If you want to keep it simple just go right to my YouTube Stencil Playlist or scroll down and pick out just the cards you want to see. You can subscribe to my Jess Crafts YouTube channel to see more projects and at the bottom I will include links to some of my favorite stencils and stencil essentials.

Stencils with Embossing Paste


Tip: Use Distress Ink refills to tint the embossing paste


Tip: Save money by using spackle instead of traditional embossing paste


Tip: You can add embossing powder right over embossing paste and heat set it.


Stencils with Distress Ink


Tip: Use a large stencil to create a background or draw attention to your focal point.


Tip: You can soften the look of a card with vellum.



Tip: Use an ombre to add interest to a flat design.



Tip: You can mask off your images and then layer on a stencil to create a background for your card.


Stencils Made from Dies


Tip: You can group small dies to create an overall pattern for the stencil.
