Thanks for popping in. Had my vaccine yesterday evening. Felt fine, I really did! But as the day is going on I’m fading like a flower! There’s nothing for it but to stop for the day and have a nap.
Before I go, I want to flag up a wheelie great stencil concept, which we came up with a few years ago now. 6 years ago, to be precise! Thing is, we always dance off to the next thing, and these ingenious stencils with built in masks get lost in the unrelenting stream of new designs, new products new new new. However. I think we have so many new customers and friends, I bet they haven’t even seen these! One of them – the chess stencil – is on telly on Sunday, which is what prompted me to shout about them!
The Chess pieces come in 2 sizes, see?
This weekend, Sunday 2-4pm we are launching a superb mixed media collection of stamps on HOCHANDA, all to do with chess. They’ve been in the pipeline for a while, and we think you will love them. I will tell you more about the stamps tomorrow, but today I want to flag up the wheelie clever stencils…
Here’s a picture step by step I did back then. Blimey! I must have had more time or energy back then to do this chess board! No wonder I designed a perspective chessboard stencil, which is also on the telly on Sunday.
The main thing is to position the pieces on a piece of stencil card, then run them through a die cutting machine to emboss them.
I used one of our journaling stamp sets to add detail to the background
Let’s take a closer look at a few of my favourites wheelies.
So you have 2 wheels, which are attached in the centre with a swivelling snap-rivet. This pops open and closes for cleaning. The stencil images are on the lower wheel,the aperture is on the upper wheel.We Wheelie love them. And we hope you do, too….
We have some awesome larger Alphabet stencils (lower and upper case)
and the leaves and branches! Well, that’s just wheelie brilliant!

If you like building art, then you’ll love these!
Love and hugs
