Elise‘s birthday card is so cheerful! She doubled up the Bunting Background Stencils to create this fantastic rainbow design! Then all it needs is a Scripty Happy and Henry’s Build-A-Sentiment: Spring birthday greeting.

And speaking of rainbows, Mindy inked Draped Ribbons Stencil in a beautiful rainbow pattern! It’s so perfect as a background for the Really High Five critters on this special birthday.

Oh goodness, Marine‘s Fly High design is so adorable! She used bright rainbow colors for Bunting Background Stencils and the hot air balloons are so pretty colored in coordinating shades! Another amazing birthday card!

There’s lots of fun happening in Grace‘s Beam Me Up design! The bright colors of the Draped Ribbons contrast with the deep blue of outer space! I love how she added another layer of fun with Starry Sky Background Hot Foil Plate, so shiny!

Latisha combined the Bunting Background Stencils with Lots of Stars Background Stencils for her thank you design! She added a fun Plane and Simple airplane and banner to create a simple design with lots of impact!

Audrey’s underwater scene is so “fintastic”! She featured You Are Sublime creating a fun design with Desert Canyon Backdrop. Then she stenciled the Draped Ribbons to create the look of sunray in the water!

Elena inked her background in sweet colors before adding the Bunting Background with Stencil Paste in white. It looks so pretty in contrast with the colorful backdrop. Her birthday design is so cute with Elephant Parade critters, cake and peanuts!

It’s a pastel rainbow with Draped Ribbons Stencil that makes Grace‘s card so sweet! She colored the Build-A-Gumball Machine in soft colors with gumballs in the same shades too. Then she added cute critters from Really High Five and Butterfly Kisses for so much cuteness!

Like Latisha’s card, Mindy stenciled the Bunting Background in patriotic colors on a kraft panel to send a special thank you card! She embellished her design with Giant Outlined Thanks and Party Balloons Lawn Cuts!

The Draped Ribbons Stencil creates a dramatic backdrop for Chari‘s Giant Outlined Merci design!

  1. I love making backgrounds with stencils. I also like using them with die cut images like the Spring Blossoms with the teapot and tea cup to make a flowery teapot and cup, or with alpha bet dies to jazz them up a bit. I think stenciling is my favorite part of cardmaking.

  2. I love to use stencils to make a background, and I esp. love using the stencil over the already designed paper to give a very different look! I already bought your draped ribbons stencil, and planning to play with it very soon!

  3. I love to use cloud stencils to create my backgrounds. I also like using a stencil to apply a very light background pattern so it doesn’t detract from the main image.

  4. At this moment, Stamping with Stencils is my favorite technique. It creates a fun mixed media background. The only issue is that it can be messy but what’s wrong with that?!

  5. My favorite is the different grass, wave hillside stencils, and the cloud stencil to create outdoor scenes.

  6. I know there are so many ways you can use stencils but I still prefer ink blending them. Definately have to try the way Jenn Shurkus used it in the last Create with US though, where she used them with the Distress Crayons and kind of painted them!

  7. Love the fun interest and effects these stencils make on the cards. I like to use stencils to create a nice soft background or tone on tone look.

  8. I love stencils as a background, mostly I just do ink, but occasionally I do a paste. Love all these examples 🙂

  9. I like the way backgrounds looked stenciled – especially because you can choose the colours that match your card.

  10. My favorite way to use stencils is however they are being featured in a Lawn Fawn video, Create With Us or Creative Chick class. LOL. Seriously, I love stencils! I think layering stencils are like magic. I love building background scenes with the cloud and grass stencils. I love their price point and that they are so approachable, even for beginners. Beautiful projects from the design team.

  11. I love stenciling! I use them on almost every card I make. Sometimes with glitter, sometimes with textures and layers.

  12. Not only do I use stencils on my cards I also use them on my canvases and my wooden crafts that I cut out with my scroll saw.

  13. I use stencils a lot for backgrounds. I have a few layering ones that will color an image. Love using stencils.

  14. I love to use stencils for the sky and night sky! Also to add some details behind the critters! Like the honeycomb behind the bees or snow behind the penguins etc

  15. Such super creative ways to use stencils! These cards are all so cute! I love layering stencils for backdrops!

  17. I love using stencils for background designs or just as a small decoration in the corner of a card.

  18. I love how versatile stencils are! There are so many ways to use them. I really like to emboss with them.

  19. I mostly use my stencils to create backgrounds with distress oxide inks, because they blend so well.

  20. I have many of the stencils. Maybe too many, because I most of the times only use the grass-ones hahaha

  21. I love doing stenciled clouds to make a soft sky background. I also like stenciling stars for a night sky or just a cute background.

  23. I love using stencils with some texture paste and I love using the (multi) layered stencils to color in images.

  25. I use stencils for backgrounds. My fave use is the puffy cloud stencil, so fun making clouds! I’m really loving the look of the banner stencil, great for birthdays and every occasion!!

  26. I love to ink-blend backgrounds with stencils! I like to use stencils to make a matching envelope for my cards. I just got the Draped Ribbons stencil but haven’t had a chance to play with it yet!

  27. I love to ink blend with them but also love to use the pastes. I’ve also used them with foil stencil paste and that’s awesome.

  28. I enjoy using stencils for both painting and card-making. They are a quick way to enhance a background.

  29. Favorite way to use Stencils is by inking them up, when I have time I like to use stencil butter or other sparkly shimmery pastes to add dimension and wow factor

  30. My most used stencil has always been the cloud stencil for blue sky white clouds, sunset clouds, and also rainbow clouds

  31. I love stencils for fun and backgrounds on cards. I like how you can make it light on color or heavy in color for a bold background. Love the ribbon stencil!

  32. I love to use stencils to create fun backgrounds with ink blending or using transparent / coloured pastes.

  33. Wowee! I love to use stencils to bring a background into focus! I have no experience with pastes yet. But I’m always game to try new things. I love the swooping ribbons—they give so much movement!

  34. I love using stencils to create beautiful backgrounds…can’t wait to use my new Draped Ribbons stencil after seeing some of the inspiration this week!

  35. I have been having fun using stencils for embossing on card panels! A rubber mat, cutting plates, cardstock, a stencil and a quick run through your die cutting and the magic happens!

  36. I am just getting into stencils for regular use and love the ability to go bright and bold or almost fade into the background. In an SCT class they had us use them like an embossing plate…amazed!

  38. I use stencils for ink blending backgrounds on my cards. LF clouds, hills, grass and waves are my most used stencils. ❤️

  39. I love a subtle stencil in the background to make a card more interesting and a bold stencilled image as a focal point!

  40. I love using stencil for cute backgrounds, especially the clouds. These new ones will have to go on my shopping list though.

  41. My favorite way to use them is with ink blending, but I also like using pastes. I use them for background in cardmaking and scrapbooking. Stenciling is probably my favorite paper crafting technique.

  42. I like using stencils with different inks – normally creating a rainbow effect. Sometimes I use paste but it is a lot more messy to clean.

  43. There are so many ways to use stencils. I don’t have a favorite. Tim holtz demonstrated spraying his new distress spritz through a stencil. I’d like to try that.

  44. I like to fill up a card front with a colorful stencil and then add a sentiment for a simple card or use it a a background for a shaker!

  45. Lately I have been trying making different colored sky backgrounds. I like stencils for many different projects.

  46. I love it for backgrounds (especially cloud ones) but lately I have been trying out layering stencils for a focal point.

  47. I mostly use them for backgrounds, but depending on what the completed stencil looks like (is it a layered flower, for instance?) I would cut it out and use it like a die cut.

  48. Of course I like to use stencils in the usual way with inks. But I love dry embossing with them as well

  49. Everything is better with Bunting!! My favorite ways to use stencils is to ink blend fun images onto card panels. But I also like to use them for embossing paste and for spritzing colors too.

  50. I really love the dimension and depth that you can achieve with using stencils on plain backgrounds. I think the bunting and rays of ribbons are extra adorable and would make fantastic birthday cards.

  51. I love using stencils as backgrounds. Sometimes I use paste for texture (gold texture paste is nice for a little oomph for a project!), but lately I’ve just used ink. It’s a nice way to add some interest to a card or scrapbook page.

  52. To be honest, I have’t tried stencils. After seeing some of these, it looks like something I should try.

  53. The inspo is so fun! I mostly use stencils for backgrounds with ink, but love the idea of trying with paste!

  54. I love using stencils with bright colours for backgrounds! Also not sure how i missed these stencils at release, so happy they were featured!

  55. It can be a great and quick way to liven up a card background. I do like the look of the Lawn Fawn pastes with stencilled details as well, but they’re very annoying to clean off afterwards.

  56. Hi there- I am newer to using stencils. But have followed some of your videos and classes with Jenn Shurkus and am getting better with them. So far I’ve only made backgrounds, but have loved the results.

  57. I love stencils and have recently starting using them with past waste col butter for a raised 3-d effect.

  58. I haven’t really used my stencils much but after seeing all the happy cards today, I’m really inspired to do so!

  60. I like to you use a stencil for backgrounds, especially with paste. Having said that, the LF design team is great about showing alternative ways to use them 😀

  61. I can’t really think of a favorite way. I like a variety of ways. Inking, texture paste, dry embossing, etc.
