Simon Says: Stencil It


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Vacation Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week we are challenging you to

Stencil It 

There are so many fabulous stencils available right now and there are so many techniques you can use with them. It is fun to ink, spray or use embossing paste, lots of options and the end result is always a little bit unpredictable. It is a fabulous way to create your own backgrounds, or the designs can be the focus of attention. Of course you can always create your own stencils, whatever you decide to do we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This is Anne’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your projects over the past month. It has been a real pleasure having you along with us!

Anne  has used several Tim Holtz Stencils and Dies, an Etcetera tag and Tim’s wonderful Sealife stamp set to create an underwater scene.


Andrea upcycled her Pink Paislee C’EST LA VIE notebook (and made a matching bookmark) with new Prima Impasto paint (Jade and Green Apple) and a fabulous Donna Downey Dandelion Pods stencil.

Anna-Karin hadn’t stamped with stencils for a while and had fun stamping a background on this art journal page, using Dina Wakley’s Fractured Circles stencil. She also used the Alphabetic stencil together with texture paste, on the tag.

Barbara used a lot of Tim Holtz’s stencils to create a colorful trio of  Motivation tags! Circle Collage Background by Wendy Vecchi, Sizzix Wildflowers  and Paper Dolls by Tim Holtz to complete her  project!

Cathie got out her Dylusions Paints and created a card using Tim Holtz Mini Stencil Set #8 and #27 for her background.

Emma used one of favourite Tim Holtz Layering stencils, Mosaic to create her own background paper for her vintage style layout. She added extra stencilling by applying Grit Paste through the Grid Dot Stencil and used the Flutter Stamp set to create butterflies as a finishing touch.

Kath looked out her Dylusions Journal and had lots of fun with Distress Oxide inks, SimonSaysStamp Circular Lace and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mini Layering stencils from Sets 7, 25 and 28

Lols decided to decorate another page in her Dylusions Creative Dyary and used Floral, Burlap, Cargo and Dot Fade Layering Stencils to create a fun background for her fun Cat and Doodle Bloom page.

Macarena made a stenciled and textured birthday card using Tim Holtz Leafy Stencil and Metallique Paints by Prima. She made a second panel using Distress Oxide Walnut Stain Ink and Tim Holtz Type Lower Alphabet stamp.

Maura used Simon Says Stamp’s Circular Lace and The Crafter’s Workshop Mini Live Love Laugh stencils in her Dylusions Art Journal .


Meihsia made a tag with stenciled background using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Roses and Sakura Koi Watercolors.

Sandra had fun with Distress Oxides and a few stencils like Slate and Stripes along with the Joyful Garden stamp from Prima

Zoey used a bunch of Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Distress Paint to add some texture to this tag

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
