Fun with DecoArt paints and Stencils!

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you might know that I used to do a lot of mail art swaps. I haven’t done them in a while, but recently entered a new swap, to make greeting cards. The thing is, I had to make 16 cards. How could I do this?

Enter in the Americana acrylic paints and stencils by DecoArt. The people of DecoArt were kind enough to send me some samples, so I thought I’d show you some fun cards I made using their paints and stencils.
Here’s what I made:
I used their line of mixed media stencils and Americana paints, to make this lovely set of notecards for my swapping buddy.
Here’s another look:
I used the Americana “Mixed Media” stencils by Deco art, which have lots of fun designs and easy to work with. To apply the paint, I just used a palate knife.
Oh, and I made the envelopes out of magazine paper:
I had so much fun making these!
And these are easy to make yourself. Just use their stencils and paints on blank notecard paper! You can make a whole bunch as thank you cards for baby shower gifts, or even as invitations!
The Craftaholic
the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
