Part mask; part stencil!
The 3 new 6 by 6 inch stencils in the graphic above are part of Seth Apter's On the Edge series.
Truth is, while Seth was designing the series, Mary Beth said that she always wanted a stencil with the words she says to spur herself onward, "you got this".
So he made it :-)
Along with these affirmations we speak to friends and tell ourselves:

Swoosh! Boom! Sparkles! Fireworks!
Are you ready to declare you independence with June Pfaff Daley's Americana series? You are! Fantastic!
June in her own words:
As one thing often leads to another, I felt that fireworks weren’t enough to do all of the projects I wanted to create. So I added a stars and stripes to the collection. And while this particular post has a patriotic theme going on, the awesome thing about this collection is you can use these stencils for soooo many other applications. Like this is totally going to ruin my red, white and blue color scheme for this post, but here’s a peek inside my journal…”
“Yes, fireworks equal flowers as well. But for now I’d like to give you some quick tutorials on the red, white and blue projects at the top of this post. The 4th of July is only a month away so invite your friends over for a celebration…”
“For this invite, I simply folded a piece of 6.5” x 10” black cardstock to make a 5” x 6.5” card. I stenciled with the 6” x 6” S403 in white and then used Gelly Roll pens to color in some details. Party details can be written in white inside.” (There is also a 9x12 version of this stencil.)
Here’s a breakdown of what you see happening above:
1) Gather your stencils, a solid t-shirt, fabric paints and brushes.
2) Center the state stencil. Tape in half and paint solid white below the tape line. Let dry.
3) Position star stencil on top and stencil stars in white. Outline this portion in white. Let dry.
4) Position line stencil on top of solid white portion and stencil stripes in red. Let dry. Done!
Here is how to create:
1) Gather a tank or t-shirt, stencils, navy jean fabric, fabric paint and brush.
2) Make star fabric by using the 6” x 6” star stencil and white fabric paint. Let dry.
3) Iron fusible web to the back of your star fabric. Use the 6” x 6” USA stencil and a fabric pencil to mark and then cut out.
4) Center and iron the USA to your shirt. Sew the USA approx. 1/8” in with white thread using a sewing machine. Done!
“What every party needs…koozies aka wraps to keep your canned beverages ice cold! To make these, I first stenciled a piece of 4.5” x 10.5” fabric with fabric paint.” (See below for the full-out design.)
1) Sandwich the following in this order: Stenciled fabric, 2-sided fusible insulated foam, plain fabric.
2) Zig-zag stitch all around the edge of the sandwich.
3) Straight stitch Velcro to the front and inside of the koozie.
“Here they are flat (above) and here they are working hard to keep your beverages cold (below)”:
“And that’s a wrap! (sorry couldn’t help myself) Hopefully I’ve inspired a few ways to celebrate summer and freedom. Please let me know what you create and enjoy the summer festivities!”
