do you LOVE stencils and a GIVEAWAY?

happy Monday!

stencils are a great creative tool
I love that they are so versatile

use them with inks
use them with paints
use them as backgrounds or as the main image...
stamp thru them
mix and match them…
use a portion of a stencil with a stamp…
use them to create a shadow…I'll show you that soon!
trace around them for a hand drawn look…
use them flat or use them to create custom embellishments...
use them for cards, art journal pages, home decor and scrapbooking too...
or add embossing paste thru them to create texture and dimension...

I think you get the idea

I also love that they are an inexpensive reusable tool to make art...

Wendy, I love the all the flowers in the SiSi collection! And of the other stencils, the umbrella and cloud is my favorite. I'm getting quite a collection of stencils these days...I love them! Thank you for the chance to win the class tuition...I've been wanting to take that class but couldn't afford it right now.

SannaS said...

i'd love to win a spot in the class, thanks for the chance!!

and omg, it's just impossible to choose a favorite from your new release...but the zinnia of the SiSi's is just perfect and i can see the "add a stencil…" used with, well everything... =)

gorgeous sample piece!!! =)

Suzan VonEssen said...

All are simply fantastic!!! If I HAD to pick a favorite, it would be "In Full Bloom". All the flower ones are awesome!!!! Thanks for a chance to win :-)

Claudine Criner said...

Wow Wendy, what a wonderful give-a-way. Thanks for the chance to win. I would also love to use some of that crackled texture paste, it looks like so much fun!!

Tarnished Rose said...

I like the sunburst stencil the most. The stamp and stencil ones are pretty cool too.

Marilyn

Anita Houston said...

Pick me, pick me! Gotta have that Paste!!!! You are so generous! LOVE the pocket this tag slips into! GORGEOUS!!!

Cheryl Grigsby said...

I love them ALL, but forced to choose? I really like Perfect Peony. Sort of a relaxed, blowing in the wind flower. Super pretty. Also love Darling Daisies, why not get 2 stamps instead of one? This is a great value. Sidenote: CRAZY about Tree Branch and Dandelion. AND Crackle Paste, which is so yummy I'll probably eat it and wash it down with some Distress Stain.

Marcia Neat said...

Wow - Vintage Doily is my favourite

stamping sue said...

stencils are a fun and easy way to add dimension to cards which is what I like to do.
I like the large collage and tic-tac-toe stencils but my absolute favorite is the checkmate stencil!
thanks for the chance to win.

Noreen said...

I'm just starting to use stencils & love how you can change the look of a project using them. I love your stencil "Little bits", there's so much you can do with it. I haven't used stencil paste yet, but can see that opens up even more creativity

Dee in N.H. said...

All of your stencils are really cool but my favorite new one is Little Bits. Thanks so much for a chance to win!

Marci said...

I love all of the si sis! Don't have computer so can't take the online class, but would love a chance to get the crackle paste! Thank you. I do like the stencils, too.

DeAnna Goen said...

I love all the new stencils. I must have them ALL! The SiSi's are pretty cool and I think the Full Bloom is my favorite. I'm loving texture paste and I think it would be cool to have the crackle paste. Honestly, I'd love to win ANYTHING!

Super Jen said...

Michael said...

I am quickly becoming obsessed with stencils. Love all the different things you can do with them. The class sounds really cool and would love to win a spot. My favorite of the new stencils is Little Bits. What I love about stencils is they work great to add interest to the background of your art and the Little Bits is perfect for that! Thanks for the chances to win.

Roseanne said...

Candy Spiegel said...

I am so in love with all of your new releases ... I need the large patchwork background stamp ... it has always been one of my favorites, but I wished it was bigger -- wish no more!

And I absolutely love In Full Bloom!

Oh and the Crackle Paste ... I cannot wait to get that in my hands!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I will be making art!

Sue said...

The versatility of SISI, embossing paste and color to add a metallic look has expanded my art tool box w/out breaking the bank. I can't wait to sign up for the on-line class.

annielou said...

I still have stencils from the 80's. I am so glad I did not get rid of them ... who am I kidding .... I never get rid of anything (ask my husband !!!). And I have some new ones ..... you can never have to many stencils !!!!

Anne said...

I love the "little bits" stencil-I like to repeat an image across my projects, and this would work wonderfully, no matter which image I choose to use!

Julie Steed said...

Lovely pocket and tag, Wendy! I've heard about that class - sounds great. And I would love,love, love to play with some of your crackled texture paste! Did I say love? Yes!

Nancy said...

You know I love your stencils - all of them!! - but for whatever reason, that checkerboard one screams "YOU MUST HAVE ME!!!!" every time I see it! mustmustMUST have it!!

Buttons said...

It's just a little cruel to make us choose, but if pushed to the edge of a cliff I'd have to take 'add a stencil' and 'vintage floral' with me. And then you go use them on a gorgeous tag!! I NEED both - simples. Thanks for this amazing chance to win. Jenny x

Craftyfield said...

Choices, choices... If pushed I would go for the Sunburst, since it can do flowers as well! I love stencils and winning a place on this class would be awsome!

Lottie said...

I love the umbrella and clouds stencil as it is so original and different so it has to be my favourite but it was a close call as the collage ones are great too. All the Sisi ones are gorgeous.

It is truly and impossible task.

Thank you so much for the chance to win one - and I am off to check out the on line course - it sounds so original and just up my street

picturemethis said...

I love to use stencils! I like to use stamp ink or distress ink daubers with them! My favorite of your new stencils is the 'add a stencil.' So versatile for backgrounds!! thanks!

SusanK said...

Would love to win some class time using stencils! Your pastes make them even more versatile. Loving the checkerboard pattern...it could be done on the diagonal which I can't wait to try!

Shirley Murdoch said...

I love everything you do Wendy, however, the vintage birdie & floral stencil is heavenly. Also the checkmate one is fab too as I struggle for man orientated backgrounds. Fab giveaways, the class would be amazing.

Shirley x

michelle said...

I can never ever pick just one. I am so wanting to use the crackle paste and adore the Daisy SISI oh and all of them so much fun new things to create art with! I am just beginning to use stencils so I would love to know more ways to use them thanks for the class information! Thanks for all the lessons you give us and for being you!

I love the Little Bits stencil - so many different things to use it for - lovely selection of "bits"!!
:-)

Stampnms said...

They all look so fun but have to think "little Bits" is the one that I want first. Also can't wait for the new archival pads. Thanks for a chance to win so many wonderful products.

Ratty Hugs said...

I adore stencils, they are so useful, I would love to learn more techniques. The vintage floral & perfect peoney stencils are so useful, I can't decide on one.

Susan Falkler said...

I really like the basket weave stencil and my favorite SiSi is Build a Blossom. The SiSi is a really clever idea and makes everything so much more versatile. I would really love taking the class. Please,please,please pick ME. Is that whiny enough cause I could do more. :)

Debby said...

Ordered all of the stencils- love the Sunburst since I saw the flower you created with it with Clearly for Art. I love the SIsi In Full Bloom. Yep preordered that too. How's that for earning Brownie points?

Helen said...

Do I like stencilling? I do... Do I like giveaways? I do.... Which of Wendy's is my favourite new stencil? How can I pick one?! Well, ok , if you push me, maybe the Wildflower... Thanks, Wendy you are so generous.

Looks like a very fun class. I love all the SISIs, but I'm a Zinnia lover so I pick that one, today. I must have the crackle paste.

Thanks for a chance to win!

Wilma said...

Just love what you made for the CHA. It's hard to choose a favorite when you like everything you created. But well form the SiSi's full bloom and the stencils: sunburst. What a great chance to win the extra bonus: the crackled texture paste. Good luck everyone, keep my fingers crossed :-)

carmen roets said...

Hey Wendy! You're my discovery of the year 2014! I'm a stencil addict, and I really want expend my collection with yours! I just love what you do with them, your work is really inspiring! So thanks for this opportunity to win! Greetings, Carmen

Lillian Child said...

I have a GROWING collection of stencils that I have NO idea what to do with (other than canvas creations), so winning a spot in this class would be absolutely fantastic! Add to that the fact that I'm going to be home for the next two months doing physical therapy for a knee replacement, the class would help me concentrate on something FUN and help me deal with all the pain ahead ... thanks for the chance!!

Mooffie said...

Oh Wendy so not fair! Sort of like choosing between your favourite icecream flavour, or your favourite cat... I suppose some might say favourite child, but I have never understood that... it all depends on the circumstances, on the need, and yup, I am gonna need all of them! Thanks for the opportunity, and for continuing to break my bank account! Take care 3uth

VicR said...

I've signed up for the stencil class, and so excited to learn some techniques. I really can't wait to try your new crackled texture paste!
It's hard to pick a favorite stencil, but I really love "little bits" & "add a stencil". Thanks for a chance to win :)

I would love to win a seat in this class. Thanks for the chance!

Sharon said...

Hi Wendy: I've used stencils for year - everything from flower pots, canvas bags, designs on outdoor Adirondack chairs and in my home. It's great they are finally being recognized for paper crafts! My favourite is "Little Bits" as this will complement many of the stencils I already own. Thanks for the chance to win!
Sharon

Sue Butler said...

Hello Wendy.
Your pocket with Tag looks great, and shows off the stencils beautifully....I cannot just pick one that I like, as I would be happy to have any of them, so the opportunity to join in a class and a chance to win sounds great to me, and what I would do to try the texture paste also.
This is a great prize for anyone who wins and it would be amazing if it was me....Ha.
Good Luck everyone.
Smiles:)
Sue

Aspiring crafter said...

Hi Wendy,
My word-how to choose?!
Love ALL the stencils -especially basket weave and the tic tac toe.
The flower ones -I guess my favourite is build a flower but I love them all.
I have been getting into stencils this last 6 months and really enjoy the unique art you can make.
I have used the paste -just inks so far -so paste would be cool,
I really love the archival colours-so much to go on my wish list!
XxRuth

Sisters Country Rustics said...

Your stencils combine so beautifully but to choose one only I think I would pick the vintage floral...LOVE your work! Thanks :)

Rea' said...

Happy Monday... and Happy I am (I still have a CHA High )!!
Maybe Inspiration overload ... I don't know ... Who knows... I'm Happy !!!
Love the stencils, so much fun, looking forward to more play time this 2014. Still trying to chase down that sugar daddy to support my habit LOL !!

Rea' said...

Oh ... so busy chasing the sugar daddy ... I forgot to tell you ... I'm so loving SiSi perfect peony and the darling daisies I think I want those first THEN the others ( I want them all). Oh and the large collage ... okay that would be cool 'cause there is such a variety of blocks to play with...But I like the vintage wall paper too !!! So much fun stuff...

Claire said...

I'm loving stencils at the moment - they are so cool! My fav from your new releases has to be the sunburst - it's fab!! Thanks for the chance to win some yummy goodies! Love Claire x

Redanne said...

Oh, how to choose! If I was pushed really hard I would have to say the starburst stencil is my favourite, I think it would look great on flowers. I have done the online classes in the past and they are such good value for money. Thank you so much for the chance to win. Anne x

Kate said...

The vintage doily is by far my favorite! I love all your stencils! & that would be so fun to win a class!!!!

pearshapedcrafting said...

Oh! OK - if I really have to choose a favourite it has to be the SiSi Zinnia! Had to really think on that one because they are all so fantastic! Thank you for the chance to win a place!

finnella03 said...

How can you choose one set, I love them all. If I have to choose, after a lot of changing my mind, it would have to be The large collage stamp, and in Full bloom, but I could change my mind again!

Lisa said...

I love all of your new products...it's too hard to pick a favorite!! But if I must, I would say Little Bits!! I've already signed up for Stenciled so now I just need your stencils!! Happy Monday :)

cheryltownley said...

I've been using stencils so much lately and just love the extra versatility these new releases offer. I think my favourite stencil would be the Little Bits - just so versatile. But I was completely wowed out by the SiS sets. They are all so amazing that I think I would have to have them all! If you twisted my arm I guess I would choose
In Full Bloom.

Monica Smith said...

Sharon Y said...

Fabulous release! Great giveaway. So generous. Ok, suck up time now - its a toss up between the perfect peony and the zinnia. Loving the flowers. And oh, the crackle paste is amazing. I could make good use of it with my Wendy Vecchi Archival Inks. Thanks so much!

Yvonne said...

It's hard to choose a favourite but the "little bits" would be useful for so many projects. I love to make canvas art with texture paste, inks and paint. How exciting to be in with a chance to win. Thank you x

Debbie said...

I love stencils, you can never have too many! Thank you for the chance to win :)

Eileen Bellomo said...

Thanks for the opportunity! As an admitted stencil addict, this is just a dream! In the spirit of sucking up, though the flowers (especially the peony, my favorite flower) are wonderful, I think the Little Bits are my favorite. Very versatile. Don't have the six new ink colors, but have been using your first six ALL THE TIME, and just love them. So, I'm sure there will be six more on my work table very soon. And the crackle paste? Oh my, need that too. :)

Diane J said...

I like the floral designs. I will say my favorite is vintage floral. I have not used stencils very much and I guess this year would be to start using them more.

Jessica said...

I just love all of your new stencils but the In full Bloom one is my very favorite, it's just gorgeous!!! Thanks for the chance to win!! :)

Therese said...

I am so addicted to stencils....... Have em all and still can't get enough. Can't wait to get your stencils which is on order, your crackle paste, sisi, stamps, I keep telling you that you should have your own online class for all your different techniques. You are so good with instructions and your creativity is amazing. Ok I am done sucking up with nothing but the fricken TRUTH...... Hugs, now my part is done, all you have to do now is PICK ME. LOL.

I love the X & O's .. I forget the name and I just looked at it :) LOL Thanks Wendy .. love all of them !!

Elizabeth said...

Can't make up my mind which flower stencil I love the most, guess I'll need to get them all and get back to you on that

Celine Blacow said...

Ohhhh I'd love to win.. I have some of your stencils and I am just not 100% sure what do with them, in a really creative way!!

Cafe Crop said...

Love the stencils and stamp combos. My favorite is probably the flowers/birds.

I think the BEST thing is that you create a storage system along with it to keep them organized, easily accessible, and not getting tangled up with other stencils.

Elaine A said...

Hi Wendy -

I am so glad that stenciling is back in a big way. They are so much fun to play with. Of your new releases my favorites (well honestly I love them all) are: Zinnia - so pretty and detailed, Checkmate and Vintage Floral (adore those birds).

Great CHA release!

Elaine Allen

karen barker said...

Love love love your new CHA products. Totally love the little bits and vintage floral stencils along with the basket weave stamp. Please pick me for your online class. I'm also going to give your alcohol rub and re-inkers tutorial a try. Keep up the amazing work

Linda on the Prairie said...

My name is Linda and I'm a stencil addict. It has been 2 days since I played with my stencils. Joking aside, I'd love to win a seat in the class and see how you approach the process!

Kyla said...

Oh what a fabulous chance to win (i am doing a happy dance....luckily you cannot see it....it's not a good look!).

I agree, stencils are SO versatile. I have tried hand cutting some myself from salvaged plastic but the intricate cuts of your basket weave, or sun burst are fabulous. My mind is already buzzing with ideas from watching all the CHA sneek peeks....its a long wait in the UK for the goodies to filter through....this course would help fill the gap! :-)
Kyla

Gemma Maggs said...

Such an amazing giveaway. I love stencils, and you can never have too many!! Xx thanks for the chance

Pamela Jane said...

Another stencil addict here, layering, rotating, reversing, embossing ... would love to add "little bits" to my stencil arsenal

Gerrina said...

I started stamping 5 jears ago and started stencilling at the same time. You had to go all over the world to get the stencils and that was great fun, but I´m glad I can buy your new stencils a little closer to home in a while! I just love them! Would be great to see if there are more ways to use stencils as I do now in the class... But working with stencils alone gives me so much plesure! Inky greetings, Gerrina

Cheryl said...

Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the new stencils- if I had to choose would be Sunburst. Love all the new goodies and would love to take this class. Thank you so much for such great inspiration and sharing it with all of us.

Yvonne Boucher said...

I love how stencils have evolved from the snowflakes on windows or flowers on furniture to this wonderful array of designs for every medium imaginable.

Starla said...

I seriously cannot narrow it down from three of your new SiSi's: Perfect Peony, Build a Blossom and In Full Bloom. And, trust me, it's not that I don't like the others!! Then there is Vintage Floral. Sigh.Or Sunburst.
Obviously, you have outdone yourself with these creations!!! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!

Karen said...

Love the new releases, my favourite stencil is vintage floral.
Thank you for inspiring.

Marilyn said...

Love that pocket tag sample you made. The Vintage Floral stencil is a beauty...but I really like the Checkmate stencil too. Too many choices.... Oh what the heck, I need all of them! One can't have too many stencils! I will have to have some of that new crackle paste too. Welllll, there goes my stamping budget for the next few months! Almost forgot Tim's new round applicators...love those things to pieces. What a super idea!!! I'm really out of control! lol

Leslie M. said...

Stencils are the bomb! I love the vintage floral and the perfect peony the best. Actually, they are all super! Your embossing paste is wonderful and would love to have the newest release. Thanks for sharing.

Four days of stenciling...how fun is that?

I have all the new stencils on my NEED List, but if I had to choose it would be the SISI Zinnia and the Wwallpaper Background....don't make me choose!

Kaye said...

Well, duh (to my prior post)...the vintage wallpaper is from the must have stamp list - I meant to choose the perfect umbrella stencil!

I love, love, love stencilling! The more stencils I have, the better:-) My favourites are the 'sunburst' and 'build a blossom', although I love them all. Can't wait to see more techniques with the crackle paste.

I love them all Wendy, and the new colors! I think my favorite stencil is the Vintage Floral for the adorable birds! My favorite new stamp is large collage. But I totally have to buy the whole release :)

Thanks for the chance to win. I think my favorite is large collage, but it was really really hard to pick one. So many wonderful new products!

I love stencils but I'm not very good at using them. My favorite of your new collection is Checkmate!
