November Stencil Challenge

Hello crafters! Welcome to the November STAMPlorations Stencil challenge. We loved the beautiful stencil projects linked up to our October challenge. If you played along, don't forget to check in on the 10th to see if you are the winner of the $20 prize code to the STAMPlorations store or one of the three randomly drawn crafters to win a $7 prize code. 

But now on to our current challenge. We love to see your beautiful projects but to keep it fair and fun for everyone we have a few simple rules which you can also find at the end of this post. In addition to using a stencil on your project, we ask that you link up no more than three (3) projects per challenge. As always, our stencil challenge is anything goes as long as you use a stencil somewhere in your project. Also, remember that your project should be shown in its full glory on your blog post or Instagram, sneak peeks are not eligible to take part. Please don't forget to link back to this blog post via text link, and to include the challenge graphic to be eligible for the prizes. And above all, we hope that you have a lot of fun when you get messy with your stencils! 

If you play, make sure you include the graphic below in your post and link back (via text link) to this challenge post in order to qualify for our prizes :o) Please also read our simple rules, which you'll find toward the end of this post.

Before you add your project to the link-up, please make sure that you are already linking up to this challenge and the challenge graphic is displayed on your blog post. Otherwise, your entry may be deleted and/or you will not qualify for the prizes. Also, please link up a maximum of 3 entries only -- whether you are linking from your blog or your Instagram account. The maximum entry is per player, so linking up 2 of your projects from your blog and 2 projects from your Instagram account will disqualify you from the voting and prizes.


  1. Beautiful stencil inspiration! Nancy's card is so cute - I adore animals and scene cards! Hoping to play along this month! Thanks for inspiring!

  2. great inspiration for stencils - will get going on my entry today!!

  3. Many beautiful cards & such. I’ve got your stencils & dies but have not yet recuperated enough to start crafting. You’re got a wonderful variety of slimline stencil designs! Your post about your girls going to the mailbox with their dolls was very sweet.

  4. Stamplorations has wonderful stencils - in which I am blessed to own several - just recently received the brick stencil--- lovely work here by the DT TFS

  5. I especially like the Lupines and the panda!

  6. I love these amazing inspiration from DT members.❤️

  7. I am so excited to find a new source of challenges. I love doing challenges because they are great motivation for me to spend more time in my stamp room. I have so much more time for them now during this pandemic. I have some of your stencils and have recently discovered your digital images for sale. I used one of them on my card I posted.

  8. These stencils gave FAB inspirations and ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Such lovely creations,
    love the pumpkin.

  10. I tend to not use stencils, only have a couple from discount bin, so dont have the knack. These are so cute, I love the birch trees and bear background. I admire the confidence with ink speading.

  11. Gorgeous inspiration for your designers and can't wait to play along!!

  12. Beautiful and inspiring projects by the DT's. Well done.
    I just couldn't understand why I couldn't link up to Asmah's blog. This is the message I read when I click on to Asmah's card: "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist". I have to go to her blog to read and comment.

  13. Enjoying the ideas for stencil use. The stencils are quickly becoming my favorite craft item.

  14. Looking for some stencil inspiration! Lots to see here!
