My Favorite Things Stencils ~ A Review and some Thoughts

A while ago I was asked to review stencils from MFT Stamps.

As you know, I love stencils . . . what mixed media gal wouldn’t.  So here are some honest thoughts about My Favorite Things stencils.

Here are some images where I used the stencils.  Please see below the photos some tips and a review.


  • I found some fun patterns and had difficulty choosing just five.  Find them here.  One of my favorites I was sent was ‘Jumbled Letters’.  There are some great patterns to choose from.
  • While I love the variety, I think it would be fun to see some randomness in the stencils.  Ie. Crooked hearts, not straight edges. I’d love to see some unique designs offered . . . ones not already on the market.  But a randomness . . . I do like the Brick Wall Stencil which offers a fun whimsical look.
  • The stencils took ink spray very well.
  • I like the sizes offered.
  • The stencils without thin lines seemed fine, but the ones with the tinier lines seemed to not get as crisp image.  Other stencils I have are a little stiffer.  Ie. Stencil Stripe Design.
  • The stencil material was difficult to get clean from paint.
  • I used the stencils in several ways; I used them with spray ink, on a gelli plate, with watercolor, with modeling paste, with paint (acrylic and heavy body acrylic).  I think the thicker the material the crisper the image.
  • I could seeing using them for different projects; cards, scrapbooking, art journaling.

So there you have it.  My Favorite Things also carries a lot of other goods such as inks, cardstock, ribbon and such.  You can check out more here.

Thank you MFT for sending these stencils my way to check them out.
