In the video I’m sharing today, I use one of the sentiments from the NEW sentiment kit, “Thanks Above & Beyond” created by Lisa Arana with the above color prompt from this month’s Unity {be inspired} Challenge. The stencil that’s used in the kit was made using my Silhouette Cameo and the offset of the sentiment from the NEW sentiment kit in Silhouette Studio.

If you’re interested in making your own stencils with your Cameo, I used Darice Studio 71’s Non-Adhesive Stencil Film (4 mil thick). It comes in a pack of ten 8-1/2-x-11-inch sheets. I used the “cardstock” setting in Silhouette Studio to cut the stencil. It really WORKS well.  I’ve been making stencils like crazy. In fact, I’ve made 27 stencils so far, and I just got the first pack last week—WOW! These stencils are reusable as they can be washed following their use and stored for later. I’ve been fond of stencils in the past, BUT making custom stencils completes me somehow.

Here’s the stencil technique video—lots of stuff going on!

I used a stencil I made with my Cameo to decorate this tag using Distress inks and markers!

Here’s a look at the NEW sentiment kit.
