I’ve been making stencils for well over a year now. I will get into a creative roll and then get stuck in a rut. Lately I’ve added 3 new stencils and one old one for a total of 20 different stencils. I will try to continue making more and let you know when I have a bundle of them ready. The best selling stencils are the Pretty Face and Pretty Lady stencil. these are very helpful for adding a face to your art journal. I favor background stencils to use with my cards. If there’s something you are looking for, let me know and I might be able to design it!
To buy a stencil just click on the picture below and it will take you to the auction. To see all of them on one page, just click here!
I should also mention all of our stencils are 4.25 x 5.5″ and they are $3.99. We have a store wide sale of 25% off right now so the stencils are just $2.99. That’s a great deal for a plastic laser cut stencil!

As you know from my last blog post, I recently got a Silhouette Cameo 2 Electronic Die Cutting Machine. When I finally decided to purchase this machine after drooling over it for years, I told myself if I am going to dish out hundreds of dollars for another electronic die cutting machine I BETTER USE IT A LOT. Yes, I yelled it at myself in my head. I deserved the yelling though. Considering I spent $350.00 on the Sizzix Eclips when it first came out and I have a SLICE machine. I actually occasionally use the SLICE machine still just because it’s so small and convenient. Sizzix obviously realized they made a huge mistake with the Eclips machine because the cartridges that they used to sell for $40-60 each are now $5.00-6.00 on their website. I’d say that’s admitting you messed up. I didn’t purchase any cartridges and the only reason I bought the Eclips was because I knew I would also purchase the ECAL software (for $50.00 more) and make my own designs. Sizzix actually has an Eclips 2 now that’s specifically designed to be used only with a computer. I suppose I could have just kept using my Eclips but I just did not like the software at all! So, after years of contemplation, I bought the Silhouette Cameo 2 and got a great bundle with a ton of extra stuff for only $250.00 and Silhouette doesn’t charge you for software (unless you want the designer edition). Now there’s a company that knows what they’re doing!
So, here’s a fair warning that a lot of my blog posts will likely include the use of the Silhouette Cameo 2 machine. However, I am sure a lot of what I am using it for could be achieved in other ways. Such as fussy cutting or using the dies that manufacturers make that you can run through a manual die cutting machine such as the Big Shot (which I still plan on using).
On to the real reason we are here!
I was playing around with the Silhouette Cameo 2 and thought it would be sooooo cool if I could turn some of my stamps into die cuts!
It was easier than I expected and I am so happy with the results.
Over the course of the past few weeks Intoxicating Arts has released TWELVE new stencils. They are perfect for A2 sized cards, but the designs make them wonderful for art journaling. Especially if you like the Dyan Reaveley style of funky backgrounds. All of our stencils are 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and they are laser cut from .010″ thick laserpro plastic. That’s thicker than the industry standard of 8 mil mylar. These stencils are nice and durable. They work great with texture paste, gel medium, distress inks, acrylic paint, and pretty much whatever you want to use with them. With proper cleaning and care, they will last for a very long time. Below are the pictures of the new stencils. If you want to purchase any of them just click the picture. All of our stencils are just $3.99!

Hey everyone! I was able to get some crafty time in yesterday (wahoo!). I had so much fun making this card.
I started off the background using only inks from the Tim Holtz Distress Mini Distress ink kits #1 and #2. < Click there to purchase for the super low price of $5.59! I blended them using foam. I started off with Mustard Seed, then Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and lastly Salty Ocean. When the blending was done, I gave the background 2 spritzes of Hawaiian Shores Luster Mica Spray Mist. Then I stamped the tree and leaves from Lawn Fawn’s Sweater Weather Stamp Set. I used a silver metallic gel stick from Faber-Castell mixed with a little bit of water to stamp the stars at the top. The ground is a mixture of spackling and slate grey acrylic paint that was applied with a palette knife. I dried one layer a little with my heat tool (it will bubble if you heat it too much) and then applied a second layer which was then sprinkled with Martha Stewart glitter. The cute little monsters are from Lawn Fawn’s Spooktacular Stamp Set. I colored them with watercolor pencils ( a technique I am trying to get better at!) and fussy cut them. They were applied with homemade glue dots. The beautiful sentiment on the side of the card is a chipboard laser cut by Intoxicating Arts. These are $1.69 and come in a 2 pack with one Card Maker size and one Scrapbooking Size. The chipboard was colored using the same silver metallic Faber-Castell Gel Stick, but this time it was mixed with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gloss Medium. I also used the gloss medium to adhere it to the card stock. I hope you enjoyed this card and if you have any questions, please let me know!
Hi everyone! I just made this card last night for my Mom’s Birthday. Like most times, I sat down only with an idea of which products I wanted to use and a slight idea of what I wanted to do. I had no idea the card would come out looking like this, but I am pretty happy with it!
I started by spraying the background with Hawaiian Shores Luster Spray Mist to give it a nice creamy color. Then I used my Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil with Hawaiian Orchid. Then I centrally sprayed Deep Sea Dive and used my heat tool to move it around a little bit . After that dried, I sprayed Shallow Waters using the same technique. Next, I grabbed my Stars Stencil ($1.99 in Mylar, $0.75 in Oil Board) and added Dusty Concord Distress Ink using a blending sponge. The cupcake stamp is from Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints and I’ve been dying to use it! I decided to keep that simple since there’s so much going on in the background and a ton of shimmer! The “happy birthday!” stamp is from one of The Paper Studio’s phrases sets that I got from Hobby Lobby. I like that they’re photopolymer and individual words. I did mess up the spacing just a little bit though. Lastly, I added a few gemstones. These were in a $1.00 pack from Joann’s. I kept the inside of the card super simple and just sprayed a few spritzes of Hawaiian Orchid, Deep Sea Dive, and Shallow Waters. I still need to write a message on the inside.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my card. I love it when I “have” to make a card because sometimes I find myself avoiding my craft room and feeling uninspired. It seems like the moment I make myself go in there I realize all the awesome things that I have to play with and I get in the mood to create !! 🙂
Just sharing pictures of my mother’s day card that I made for my step mom. She will be out of town so I had to make sure to get it done so my dad can give it to her for me. I used the beautiful Authentique Anchored line for the papers on this card. The wood anchor and chain are in my store!
