My Favorite Crafty Things: Embossing Paste & Stencils… Giveaways + Discounts

Welcome to Day 8 of My Favorite Crafty Things 2013! Today we are focusing on stencils and embossing pastes. (Be sure to visit this feature’s main page to see the other topics.)

I also have great giveaways (see below) and discount codes!

Note: Many of the products I have featured in this series are out of stock at these recommended stores. Please know that the owners are working very hard to restock quickly, but sometimes products are on back order from the manufacturer, etc. I assure you they are working on it… and working on carrying some of the products I mentioned that they currently don’t have. Stay tuned!

Time to share my favorite stencils and embossing pastes!

  1. With this video you changed my world of pastes and stencils. Love these products but had no idea there are SO many of them out there! And I love that you showed how suitable they are fro CAS (not only for mixed media).
    A have a lot of stencils. Used them mostly for scrapbook pages of mixed media projects. use them with pastes, paints, sprays.

  2. I use my stencils with sprays or if I want to go subtle, a foam applicator. I love the looks but it can get messy so I need to make sure I have plenty of time to play and clean up! With so many mixed media products on the market it’s really hard to try all the techniques out there. Thanks for sharing your favs!

  3. I love the Wendy Vecchi embossing pastes. It is so light, it adds no weight to your project. I have done art journal swap with five friends I met on a scrap site. I used stencils to add ink, spray, embossing paste for texture. Stars, sun, clocks, stripes. So many uses.

  4. I use stencils a lot with sprays and different mediums like you shared, but my favorite way to use them is with a gelli plate and paint.

  5. I have used stencils and after watching this video I am totally inspired to use them more. Usually I use distress inks or spray inks with mine, but not anymore! I’m buying some paste!

  6. I have just tried using stencil and paste once. It got very messy with my not knowing how, LOL. I wish I could order the whole SSS store, tehe!

  7. I have not used stencils much, but I have a few coming in the mail with my last Simon Says Stamp order! Can hardly wait for them to arrive!

  8. I have only used stencils with color shine sprays. Thank you for sharing all the different thin technique. I will differently be trying some of the ones you shared. Thank you

  9. I have used stencil only once and the outcome was not good.. haven’t tried since then. But now after looking at your and Debby’s videos , i am gonna try again and may be with embossing paste this time. Thanks for the video.

  10. yes, luv the stencils. I sprayed some sparkling mist over it. to me, make an interesting background quick, stencil does the job! šŸ™‚ I would like to get that tool for sure. I don’t have that…

  11. I bought paste several years ago and tried it out without knowing what I was doing… Now I do know thanks to you all. I have learnt a ton and will be using stencils on my cards for sure.
    Love the look. An amazing class!
    Thank you

  12. I love stencils, but it gets confusing about what product to use and now they work. Thank you teaching us the different things we can do with embossing pastes. I loved that round stencil you used.

  13. Great Prizes! I haven’t used stencils much. I did take a class years ago on using embossing paste with metal stencils. I like the look and variety of techniques you can create with embossing paste. I was too impatient at the time to wait for things to dry though. LOL šŸ˜‰

  14. Yes I have used stencils but haven’t really done anything beyond using it with mists and gesso. I’m excited to try some of your favorite things with it.
