This kit is called “silhouette stencils and stamps” and wysiwyg. Bringing back the old what you see is what you get. I like this box because it is straight forward but the cards will look different based on the colors you choose. For example, most of the time when we think of silhouette cards we think of something with a black frame, but who says that’s what you have to do!?! Take this to where ever you want to. Go as bright or dark as you like. My only hesitation with this box is the blank card panels that it comes with. They are sort of like a linen panel and you need to be careful because the ink will smear a bit. I did make a card on regular cardstock too and the stencils work beautifully. You be the judge which cardstock to use. This set has over 220 elements, and will make 18+cards. It includes stencils, stamps, cards, envelopes, patterned and solid cardstock, pearls and ribbons. Everything you need. You can check out the subscription box site for the unboxing and a few demos – Crafters Companion Box site.
Sara Davies, the owner of Crafter’s Companion, always puts together a fun kit that is packed with lots of crafty items and new techniques. My kit was delivered with auto-ship through HSN as always. You can check out Crafter’s Companion website for more information. This kit, as always, is a wonderful bargain. There is a Facebook group that you can join once you subscribe which provides lots of community support and loads of examples; plus, Sara also has a monthly card kit site that you can refer to for demos/project pages.
I really didn’t need to use any additional materials besides some scrap paper for backing behind the sentiments and whatever ink you choose to use on the stencils and stamps. For glue, I used a combination of tape pen (runner), 3D glue gel and I used collall wet glue to raise up a few of the sentiments. I would also recommend the Crafter’s Companion glass mat. It is a true game changer. Once you work on a glass surface you will agree!
Here are a few of the cards I made – let me know which you like best…..
