November 2017 - Stencils

Welcome everyone to our November Challenge.
Our theme this month is "Stencils", chosen by the lovely Gabrielle

I love stencils and when given the opportunity to choose the theme this month it was an easy choice! In this journal page I have six stencils - two different numbers, arrows, speckles, tracks (under the leaves) and plus symbols. If you'd like to see more on this, please pop over to my blog!

Brrrrr the temperature certainly knows that we have reached November. We are counting down to Christmas now and I make no secret that this is my favourite time of the year. I am in full Christmas crafting mode. For the fun stencils theme this month I made one contemporary styled and one vintage card. Today I am sharing my contemporary one... I do love blue with silver and white.
I have a full step by step over on my blog here where a chilly  warm welcome awaits you. Keep snug, I think it is now time to get out my scarf and hat. I wonder if one of these snowflakes will flutter down soon?
Bye for now,


I was so pleased when I saw that the challenge this month was stencils, as they are something that I really enjoy working with.

I've used them in a couple of different ways for my piece, and if you pop over to my blog there are lots more details there.
Have a wonderful November, and I'll see you later in the month for my second piece x

I travelled back in time to re-visit an old technique which I adapted to stencils. Come and check the details on my blog, I promise it's a fun and easy one!

Hello everybody,
it's Monika here
with the first project of our November challenge: Stencil it!
At this card, I created a stencilled background using two Distress markers for the flowers and two for the leaves.
As I really liked my background I didn't want to hide any part of it, so I decided to use a vellum for the text.
More details on my blog!

Stencils! I admit, I am a little bit addicted to stencils. They are so versatile to use. I really enjoy working with them.

I made a male card for a special anniversary and used some stencils for the background.
