I got a lovely email from a new UK company called Artistic Flair Crafts. They offered me a coupon code to try out a few products. It was the perfect excuse to drag out my Gelli plate, as some of their main products are stencils! I do love a good stencil.
I selected a range of them – 4×4 inch ones
6×6 inch ones – and yes, either by me clicking wrong or by a glitch in the ordering (combined with me not double-checking) I ended up with two of the same design! DOH!
and A4 sized ones. And something they call TABS. Loving them and wish I had more time to perfect the use of them.
I tried scraping the pain thru the stencil, but was a bit careless cause I was rushing. And scraping thru, without a bit of light adhesive to keep the stencil in place, was a bit silly. I know they will be fab with sprays or sponging thru them, for art journal pages or layouts.
Another unique item is the cake topper stencil. I got small cupcake ones but they have a nice range of bigger ones (8 inches) too. And cake SIDE stencils are Coming Soon.
So cute. Obviously I don’t make cakes, but with a little surgery I converted one of these for Gelli plate use:
I think they would work nicely with the round plate – I like the fact that the stencil is designed as a circle, radiating out from the centre, so the effect is not just a regular stencil in a circle. IYKWIM.
I only had a few minutes to play, so my samples are not hugely inspiring but everything is still all out all over my desk so I may try to find a bit more time and carry on. It was fun!
They also have a range of cute little wooden shapes, if stencils aren’t your thing. Aren’t these adorable?
Most importantly, here is a code you can use at checkout to get 20% off for yourselves!
Let me know what you buy!
