Stencil Test DriveDots and Dashes stencil by Jessica Sporn for Stencil Girl Products

I’m playing with the Dots and Dashes stencil today and so are some other great creatives. Stop on by and check them all out!



I was cleaning out a cabinet, yes, I do clean sometimes but am easily distracted by things like envelopes!   I found a stash of envelopes, such perfect timing for this Stencil Test Drive!  Out came the Gelli Plate and I began playing with paints and color…still haven’t finished cleaning the whole cabinet but I do have some great envelopes now!

Update: This is the 2nd upload(actually 3rd but that is a story I’ll vent about on Facebook ) and it seems to be working correctly! My tribute to the YouTube gods worked!

Apparently I have angered the YouTube gods.  This video is getting stuck for some people and not others.  It worked fine yesterday when I watched it & on my mobile device but not on my computer this morning…so I am re uploading it.  As soon as it is up I will add it here.  Sorry about this!

See the video on YouTube here.

    Love the envelopes. For some reason the video stops after you print the 2nd envelope. I can hear you but I don’t get anymore pictures. :(.

      Sorry you’re having problems! I watched it on my iPhone and it ran fine but when I watched it on my computer it got stuck. I am reuploading it (will take about 3 hours) and will change this video out for the new one. Wish I knew why YouTube is unhappy with me today!

  2. Corrine says:

    Ah my color love pages….I always feel so happy when I see what you do with color and this stencil by Jessica just highlights it even more…..xox

  3. Pat T says:

    Having the same trouble as Boo, I have tried it on You Tube and it is the same.

    • Carolyn says:

      Sorry YouTube is messing with me. It worked on my iPhone but not the computer. I’m reuploading it now so in a few hours I’ll have it fixed.

  4. Judy Shea says:

    Well, you did it again. These colors are BOOM in your face and gorgeous. Great stencil to play with.

  5. Linda K says:

    I love making painted envies with my gelli plate too. Who wouldn’t LOVE to receive one of your vibrant envies-fabulous!!

  6. Beautiful envelopes! Would love to get mail art like this (hint hint… :) ). I’m going to check back later to watch the video after you re-upload. Because I LOVE your videos! Thank you for joining this test drive — as always, you bring so much inspiration and joyous creativity to the table.

  7. YUMMY colors! Who wouldn’t LOVE to get one of these envelopes in the mail!!

  8. Cynthia says:

    Amazing!! Love the colors and the textures!!!

  9. Love the envelopes, this may be my second project with my new gelli plate.

  10. Oh No! Another stencil for my wish list. I love how yours turned out. BTW do you have a listing somewhere of all of your videos? I am hooked on the Gelli Plate and stencils! There is just not enough time and I don’t even think about cleaning around my craft stuff. My hubby is afraid to lay something for more than a couple of minutes or I will “paint” it.

    • Carolyn says:

      I totally understand Vicki! The UPS guy is almost one of the family from delivering all the paints and supplies! If you look on YouTube at my channel it lists only my videos so it is easy to see what is what. You can find it by clicking on the YouTube button on the right on my sidebar.
