ARTplorations Slimline Stencils Inspiration Hop

Hey, STAMPfriends! As promised, we have a little inspiration and mini hop for you all so you can see our slimline stencils in action.

For those of you who hop and comment here and on the designers' blogs, you'll be in for a chance to win one of two prizes:
  • one lucky commenter will win her choice of 3 slimline stencils
  • one lucky commenter will win a $10 gift code to spend on the store
Simply comment between now and August 19. We'll do a special post announcing the winners on August 21. And make sure you scroll all the way down to this post for a special offer just for those who buy at least 1 slimline stencil this month.

I had a fun time using 2 of my favorite slimline stencils from the current offering -- Riotous Blooms and Wheels. I managed to create these slimline cards while the little ones were outside watering our plants. One layer slimline cards really are quick to make, especially when you use stencils to create artsy backgrounds. I have not made cards this size before and I absolutely enjoyed making them. I let the stencils be the star and just used a couple of clear stickers for the sentiments and gave them a bit of artsy-grunge vibe using a couple of stamp sets (Mixed Media Grunge and Art Marks).

Now take a look at the awesome projects Deepti, MariLynn, Nancy, and Vicki made showcasing our slimline stencils! Make sure to visit and comment on their blogs.





We hope today's projects gave you ideas on using stencils -- especially our slimline stencils! -- in slimline cards and other projects! Before you leave, check out or special offer below.

All throughout August, our slimline stencils are 20% off with the code found in the store. However, if you use a STAMPgirl's 20% off code to buy at least 1 slimline stencil, you'll receive a bonus slimline stencil -- a not-yet-released design! I'll automatically include the bonus slimline stencil in your order when I see that you used a designer's 20% off code. You'll find the STAMPgirls' codes on their blogs. (Limit of 1 free stencil per customer.)
