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!

    LOVE this new diamond stencil – already have both of your awesome word stencils and several others from StencilGirl!! What lovely stencils you design and they offer! My favorite color…totally depends on my mood! I typically return to a turquoise/mint combo, or a red/orange/pink combo. So I guess it depends on whether I’m really calm or if I’m all fired up! Lol!

  • Mary Anne January 20, 2014, 1:55 am

    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 🙂 Celery. Love it.



    PS loving the Spark this month too…..

    Orange! Not just any orange but the darker tones. Maybe orange on a cloudy day. Would that be considered an oxymoron?

    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!

  • BuddhaCanvas January 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

  • Deb Brown January 20, 2014, 9:16 am

    Wow! Love the mask technique…and the storage technique…and the color violet is my favorite in the rainbow. But red is a close second. or maybe blue is…

  • julie m January 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 Bates January 20, 2014, 11:45 am

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

  • Denise Coulter January 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 🙂 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.

  • Jo Murray January 20, 2014, 1:18 pm

    Great stencil….thanks for the quick mask tip. I just love the blue/green….must be because I live near the sea.

  • Kate M January 20, 2014, 1:32 pm

    I would automatically say greens for me BUT I have been encouraged out of my comfort zone and find other colours can be friends too!

  • Sophie H January 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!

  • Apple January 23, 2014, 8:37 am

    I tweeted it! 🙂

  • Karen W January 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/

  • mindy January 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. Golden January 23, 2014, 5:32 pm

  • edie January 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 Strack January 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 C January 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 b January 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.
