Kicking off Stencil Week

New stencil videos and a stencil giveaway every weekday during Stencil Week with Carolyn Dube

Welcome to Stencil Week! I’ve got 8 new stencils out at StencilGirl and I want to celebrate! How do I celebrate? With a new video Monday – Friday this week and a stencil giveaway everyday! 5 new videos and 5 giveaways! Be sure to stop back every day to get yourself entered to win!

New stencil videos and a stencil giveaway every weekday during Stencil Week with Carolyn Dube


I’m kicking off the week with Diamond Waves and a rainbow of colors! In the video, I also show how easy it was to keep the colors from mixing together. Masking things off has to be quick and easy for me since I am patience impaired.

It’s obvious I am patience impaired for those of you here on Sunday night since I was just too excited to wait until Monday morning to make this go live!


Want to see all the new designs right now? Pop on over to StencilGirl to check them all out.

I’ve had lots of people ask about the j hooks I add to my stencils for storage. There are 2 places I get them: at Uline and J Hooks from Amazon (the ones at Amazon go in and out of availability).

You can watch Stencil with a quick mask on YouTube here.

The giveaway is now closed.

Want to win this stencil? I am giving away one of these stencils to a randomly selected winner! To be entered all you need to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite color of the rainbow.

Want another chance to win? Just share it (Facebook, Google Plus, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.) and come back and leave another comment tell me where you shared it!

I’ll be announcing all the randomly selected winners from Stencil Week next Friday, Jan. 31st. right here. Be sure to be entered before random.org picks the winners for your chance to win! And yes, international folks are eligible too!

    I am loving these designs. They seem very different to the norm. The nice open areas would work FAB with a new technique I’ve just seen from JournalArtista, using a sandwich of a magazine page/stencil/packing tape to make a packing tape transfer. Me? I used to ay I hated green but I just had to find the RIGHT green πŸ™‚ Celery. Love it.



    PS loving the Spark this month too…..

    Beautiful stencil and I love what you did with it. I’m a HUGE fan of rainbow colored projects! But if I have to pick a favorite color, it’s definitely purple. It’s been my favorite color since I was a little girl. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • BuddhaCanvasJanuary 20, 2014, 8:50 am

    Fun use of this stencil, an easy masking technique and the chance to win? Today is a good day! As per instructions I love where the blue and green meet creating teal or turquoise or tealquoise

  • julie mJanuary 20, 2014, 11:45 am

    Oh, my! This is so cool. I, too, like bright colors so your art speaks to me in the big, bold way I enjoy. And your idea of the mask is great. It’s one of those head-slappers where we say why didn’t I think of that.
    And just when I thought I had too many stencils and needed to stop buying them for a while you design a new batch that I can’t resist. Must do my part for the economy and buy some of them (or maybe even all of them).

  • Melva BatesJanuary 20, 2014, 11:45 am

    ROYGABIV. How I remember the colour of the rainbow…… My favourite colour??????. Has to be violet.

  • Denise CoulterJanuary 20, 2014, 11:47 am

    I never thought of cutting out a mask of a stencil to keep the colors from bleeding!!! Best tip ever! And to think to think I just popped over to see what projects you made with your gorgeous new stencils. Can’t wait to see what else you have on your YouYube channel πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the tutorial!

    This is a great stencil! I love the size and balance of design to open space. Nicely done!
    As for my color, it is blue. Love the blues, teals, aquas, etc. But I do occasionally “cheat” on blue with purple. I have never disclosed that before. Please don’t tell.

    I love blue especially teal / seaglass bluey shades. I found the video very useful. Looking forward to the rest of the week.

  • Sophie HJanuary 23, 2014, 5:30 am

    Rainbows hold a special place in my heart as they were the subject of mum’s exhibition for her MA Fine Art. I do love a bright green though!

  • AppleJanuary 23, 2014, 8:37 am

    I tweeted it! πŸ™‚

  • Karen WJanuary 23, 2014, 10:45 am

    What a neat idea! I was over thinking and thought you were using a liquid mask that you would rub off when you were finished…not a paper one to help you keep it “neat.”
    Thanks for sharing and a chance to win!

  • Lorrie T.January 23, 2014, 12:31 pm

    My favorite rainbow color? Any shade of purple that appears. Pinned… http://www.pinterest.com/pin/472244710898548247/

  • mindyJanuary 23, 2014, 4:57 pm

    appreciate the j hook suggestion ! fav’ colour is where the purple blends in w/ the other colors each side of it…like that you can keep ‘sharp’ points w/ the masking =}.

  • Sandra N. GoldenJanuary 23, 2014, 5:32 pm

    Love this new stencil! For me TEAL is hot, hot, hot!

  • edieJanuary 24, 2014, 10:22 pm

    I am leaning away from purple to sapphire blue. Don’t tell my hair; I just purpled it again….

  • Laura StrackJanuary 25, 2014, 11:09 am

    My favorite color of the rainbow is Blue! I’ve always been a blue lover; denim, the ocean, the sky…..just love all shades and loving your new Diamond Waves Stencil. It is going to be fun to play with and can’t wait to make my own mask. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas!!

  • Carolyn CJanuary 25, 2014, 12:31 pm

    Awesome! Just found your blog and am now a follower. I shared, also, that I was born in 1960 and as a child stencils were starting to be available but not plentiful. So, I love them now!

  • sue bJanuary 30, 2014, 11:23 am

    Love your stencils just bought my first ones last week.
    I love those in between colors of the rainbow.
    but if I have to choose a color it would be blue.
