A stencil for Thanksgiving and smaller Painterly Horses have arrived!

Hello! Are you running into fall? We are!

And we are pleased to deliver 3 new stencils this week - 2 smaller beautiful and painterly horse stencils by Lanie Frick and a fabulous Thanksgiving stencil (The leaf mask is even included!) by June Pfaff Daley.

Thanksgiving Stencil with Leaf Mask is a 9"x12" Stencil.

Place cards, dish towels, and greeting cards are three of the uses June Pfaff Daley has put to the holiday stencil she designed.

June wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving and writes, "For my Thanksgiving table this year, I plan to have a place card for each family member to open and write inside what they are grateful for. I will save these after and use in my art journal."
June has provided a template for the inside that will make 6 cards. You can download the pdf via this link.


  • Thanksgiving Stencil L744 by StencilGirl® Products
  • White cardstock - each 8.5”x11” sheet will make 6 cards
  • alcohol ink - fall colors
  • acrylic paint - fall colors
  • stenciled maple leaves 
  • burlap
  • hot glue
  • sewing machine or embroidery thread & needle


  1. Lightly spritz the blank side of the cardstock with alcohol ink in fall colors. Let dry.
  2. Stencil a variety of overlapping maple leaves on top. Be careful not to allow the colors to become too dark.
  3. Fold each card in half and stencil the word grateful, paying attention to how the card will open in relation to someone writing on the inside.
  4. If you wish, write the name of each guest on the other side of the card.

Silverware holder:
  1. Sew or stitch pockets out of burlap strips folded up.
  2. Hot glue a maple leaf on top of the burlap. 

June planned her card compositions with stenciled images, scraps of fabric and additional cardstock. On several of the cards, she used colored pencils and gelly roll pens to further embellish.


  1. Stencil the maple leaf in several places on each card and envelope with red, yellow, and orange paint.
  2. Stencil other images onto cream colored cardstock, let dry, and cut out.
  3. Compose your cards with scraps of fabric from your stash. 
  4. Glue or stitch the elements together.
  5. Embellish more with colored pens and pencils.

June writes, "I thought a stenciled dish towel would make a thoughtful hostess gift this holiday season. To start, I went to my local Home Goods store and purchased a pack of dishtowels. These were extremely inexpensive and saved the work of making the towel itself.

To embellish I used a khaki fabric I had on hand-cut to fit the width of the dishtowel. The height of each piece of khaki fabric varies but is roughly 6 inches. I stenciled my designs in the center of this piece of fabric and then sewed it to the dishtowel. Next, I raided my stash for trims and sewed on more whimsical touches to go with each towel.

Horse Around in Your Art Journal, Paint, or Make Cards!

Horse 1 and Horse 2, designed by Lanie Frick, will gallop onto your handmade cards and into your art journal and scrapbook layouts, mixed media artwork, and more. Use them with paints, inks, watercolors... even encaustics! These hand-drawn beauties are smaller than the equine steeds of Lanie's Norman Horse and Running Horse Stencil.

We are ever grateful that you love using such a variety of stencils for so many art projects.
