Stencils & Masks
The technique of Embossing will create a 3-dimensional image on handmade greeting cards, scrapbook pages and other paper crafts. Embossing Stencils, also referred to as templates or masks, feature beautiful motifs and patterns. The combination of Embossing Stencils and the embossing technique will render a raised, textured design, often the focal point on a project.
Made from brass or durable plastic, these Embossing Stencils will be around for years with proper care and cleaning after each use.
Embossing Stencils are available in many different designs and themes, including pictures, words, animals, backgrounds, special occasions. Many of these stencils are ideal for Reverse Stenciling. This technique is basically done using a stencil and masking off the area you DO NOT want to colour, instead colouring around the design.
Another special technique to use with these Embossing Stencils is dry embossing, also called relief embossing. Dry embossing is done by tracing a stencil using special Embossing and Stylus tools. For best results with the dry embossing technique, use with an Embossing Light Box, which allows you to see your stencil clearly through card.
Our range of Embossing Stencils are also quite suitable to use with Paints, Stains, Mists, Chalks and Wax. We also feature a selection of Stenciling Accessories, which includes tools, pastes, brushes and daubers.
