Get Your Stencil Game Face On! Join the STAMPlorations Girls in the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop from April 13 to 15!

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! We are gearing up for another fun ARTplorations stencil blog hop -- our fourth since we began holding it last year.

Not only will you be getting plenty of stencil inspiration from the STAMPlorations girls, you'll also be able to share your stencil projects and get plenty of chances to win one of many prizes up for grabs. So mark your calendar and be sure to be here bright and early on Wednesday, April 13, 7 a.m. Pacific.

And here are 3 mini tutorials featuring ARTplorations stencils and Gelli plate for a little stencil inspiration. They're super short videos (under 90 seconds) I did in March 2015 when we held the very first ARTplorations stencil hop.

Mini Tutorial #1: Monoprinting Using Gelli Plate and ARTplorations Stencil
