I have watched stenciling and dry embossing on many craft shows and wanted to give it a try. This book helped me to do it quite simply and to create some great looking cards. Each card project has a list of the supplies you will need including stencil cream colors and gives you the name of the stencil company, item number of the stencil and where to purchase them. Each sample has step-by-step instructions -- both written and a picture of that step. At the end of each project they show you the card finished. ALL in color. I highly recommend this book to someone who wants easy to follow instructions, a great "visual" of each step and a look at how your finished card is going to look.

The book is a great book to refer to when making cards. I have really enjoyed the book when working on cards.

Lots of ideas and projects to do. Explained very good. I like the book. Why do the have this amount of words. I can explain it in less.

Nothing like I expected. Actually quite outdated. Cards seemed antiquated. Next time I will look at date book was published. Thank you.
