April Stencil Challenge

Hello, stencil fans! We are very happy you are here with us for the launch of the April edition of the STAMPlorations stencil challenge. The March challenge gallery looked absolutely amazing filled with your gorgeous creations. We hope you will continue to share your art with us again this month. If you play along with our challenge, don't forget to check in on the 10th of May to see if you are the winner of the $20 prize code to the STAMPlorations store or one of 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 creative 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. I especially love the flowers and butterflies! Really pretty.

  2. Pretty cards and tags! I love getting more ideas for using stencils!

  3. Thanks for all these creative ways to use stencils. I watched my grandmother stencil with heavy waxed cardstock stencils with a special stenciling paint for fabric that she used to make table covering, decorative pillow cases and for pieces to put on her quilts. I guess stenciling is part of my crafting heritage. Now the supplies are cheaper and easier to find, and there are so many beautiful choices out there. I don't have any of her old stencils but maybe
    one of my cousin has them.

  4. These are some pretty card's, what a fun way to use those cute stencils

  5. I am loving all my stencils I have gotten from Stamplorations!

  6. Nice stencil project shares. Looking forward to seeing all the entries.

  7. Love the projects using stencils. So excited to get to enter a project. First time using a stencil.

  8. Stamplorations always has the best stencils and your DT is fabulous!

  9. I am impressed with all the different ways your design team used stencils. These are all beautiful!

  10. Great inspiration projects as well as linked up projects.


Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
