We love what the design team has created this week sharing tutorials using stencils with watercolor to embossing pastes or applying the letterpress technique for dry embossing. It’s amazing what you can do with these metal stencils with the right care and a few tools. Earlier this week we talked mentioned properly removing the stencil from it’s packaging and easy cleaning after use, today it’s the tools that help make stenciling fun!
We have seven high quality embossing pastes to choose from on our website. Add almost any color medium to the white or clear pastes for even more options.
Use the Palette Knife to mix in coloring mediums, spread paste over smaller stencils or load the Paste Spreader to apply paste evenly across the larger stencils.
All that’s left is choosing stencils! You can purchase stencils from the Dreamweaver Stencils section of the Stampendous website where we are continually adding more. During the transition you can still shop the Stencil with Style website to access the entire collection.
Need some help getting started? There are great tips and techniques on how to use these wonderful products here.
With such fun new products being talked about, it’s only right to share some fantastic projects from these designers today!

Stenciling can be fun when you have a system in place for each step of the process. Yesterday we mentioned how to properly remove the stencil from packaging and today it’s about cleaning the stencil. Being able to clean your stencils immediately after use helps you quickly move on to the rest of your project. Here’s some information to keep you stenciling in style.
- Keep the stencil flat when cleaning.
- Use a flat tray or flat bottom container like our Stufftainers with enough water to cover the stencil and tools. Set them into the water until you’re ready to clean.
- Gently scrub with a soft brush while the stencil stays flat in the tray.
- Place on a clean soft cloth to air dry or use a second cloth to dry while keeping it on a flat surface.
Here’s a fantastic project today from veteran stencil designer,

We’re celebrating our new acquisition of Dreamweaver Stencils again this week. There’s just so much to learn and enjoy with these new tools! So much new inspiration from new team members joining us, and so very many new products to play with and enjoy!
When you first get your Dreamweaver Stencils, it’s very important that you start taking care of them right away! Even taking them out of their packaging can be a little tricky. You want to avoid bending the stencil at all, so that you’ll have the flattest, smoothest surface to work with for all the great techniques. We’ve linked to a great video on YouTube on every one of our new stencils to remind you about opening the product carefully. Always BEND THE PAPER, NOT THE STENCIL! Take a look:
Now go have a look at the terrific inspiration we have for you today!!

Stampendous has been so blessed to have internationally acclaimed Mixed Media Artist and Instructor Nathalie Kalbach designing stamps for our collection. She created three image groups last year that were hot, hot, hot! Now we’ve added three more. We caught up with Nathalie at CHA and convinced her to demo in the booth. Her fun and textured art journals aren’t really formal demo material, but we had a great time showing layer after layer of added yumminess as she just played around with paint and her new stamps! Enjoy!

It’s been wonderful to walk through our vintage images and share so many wonderful samples from our designers with you. These fantastic stamps are great for making a vintage looking project in no time and or be ready to mail out those classic style Christmas cards in a jiffy.
Now here’s a sweet little vintage style Owl Ornament tied to a pine bough. Jamie has colored this image so nicely that it steals the show on her card. She’s written up instructions and you can find it on our website under the Projects section. I remember one or two of these on the family tree when I was growing up, don’t you?
Here we have Kristine’s polar express line card using Train Postcard. It looks completely wintry and fun with Frantage delicately around the frame! This card also has instructions here. In fact you can find many more projects for our Christmas theme images on our website!
Suzanne can make powerful imagery when she mixes stamping and embossing powder. Her Vintage Couple card. Just click on the image and it will take you off to instruction land so you can see how she did it.
We thought our Mini Hop with Core’dinations was starting today, but we would be jumping the start line if we did. Our fantastic collaboration will begin next week and our team will be also be hopping with a new exciting partner! Figured out who it is? Come back on Monday to find out!
