~the power of a stencil~a giveaway~

I first fell in love with wall stencils when I saw
what the talented Lauren did to her living room walls.
Check it out here.
Something as small as a stencil made a huge impact! Since then,
I have found this great website with a huge selection of stencils.
It's called
cutting edge stencils
and you can see it here.

They offer fresco stencils, mural stencils, bird stencils,
ceiling medallion stencils, and so much more.

There is so much to choose from!

I LOVE this damask one below!

Anyway, the nice folks over at cutting edge stencils would like to offer one of you lucky My Sweet Savannah readers, a stencil of your own, up to $40!

All you need to do is head on over to their fabulous website and come back here and tell me which one is your favorite, and if you won, what you would do with it!

I can't wait to hear your answers!

For another entry, you can blog about this giveaway, or post it on face book or twitter.

Giveaway ends this time Friday.

Happy shopping!

xoxo

My fave is the Damask Stencil Anna...I'm a photographer and have been looking for a vintage wallpaper look as a backdrop...this is a perfect option instead!

Christie said...

I love the peony stencil! I have been thinking of trying to stencil some curtain panels. This way I could pick the colors I wanted.
Great resource. Thanks. ~ Christie

Jen said...

I think the Damask Birds of Paradise stencil is gorgeous! I would love to use it on my bedroom walls.

Kendra {House of Ficek} said...

I am a lover of wall stencils, I would choose the trellis all over for sure. I have a list in my head of everything I would use it for

Jennifer said...

I'm not sure I can live without the Iron Gate stencil in my master bathroom! My husband will not be pleased about this post of yours- he does not care for my home improvement projects when they involve his sacred bathroom! We have a white, sand and blue color scheme in our room so I'm thinking white over sand with navy towels!!! Yay!

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

I like the Brocade #1. I would make a wall hanging and use that plaster stuff on the stencil so my design would be raised. (does that make sense? :)

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

I posted about your giveaway on my facebook page.

ely said...

I really like the Silence Wall Pattern Kit, but I would probably go with Damask Stencil Anna because it would go really well as an accent wall in my office. The one that I stare at all day, everyday. It would be a great spruce up!

Stacey said...

So cute!!! I would definitely go for the zinnia flower... we are in the process of adopting a little girl and it would be so precious on her new nursery walls!

laxsupermom said...

They're all so beautiful. It's hard to choose. I like the quiet simplicity of Silence, but I also love the busier Geisha.

liz @ bon temps beignet said...

The damask one is so pretty

Elsina said...

I love them all, but probably would choose a damask stencil like Anna or the casablance stencil. Gorgeous!

Alison said...

I want the Casablanca....I really want this one because I was visiting their site this morning because I am planning a stencil project....pick me, pick me!

Anonymous said...

I love the houndstooth! I would stencil part of the walls in my study!! I also like the olive leaves.

Every Day Blessings said...

my favorite is the Damask Stencil Birds of Paradise, I would love to use this to stencil my hall bathroom, it is plain and boring.
I agree this is a great resource.
Thanks, Debbie

Amanda said...

It's so hard to choose just one favorite, but I'd love to see what kind of creative thing I could do with the Prehistoric (Large) Fish Fossil.

Clara said...

I really enjoy the Garden Anemone Flower Stencil and I think it would be perfect in my mudroom that I am doing over as there is a full wall where it would look perfect in the entranceway and I love it!

melissa said...

I love the hourglass stencil as well as the Casablanca one. I think I would first attempt our bathroom ...or perhaps the dining room? Maybe both?!?!

Stephenie from Decorating Addiction said...

I would either get the Spring Songbirds Wall Stencil, or use the credit toward the Large Tree and Bird Stencil. We are in the process of creating a nursery for our son, who is due in March, and we wanted to paint a tree on the wall. This would make it much easier! Thanks for teh opportunity!

Stephenie from Decorating Addiction said...

I just tweeted about the giveaway for a second chance to win. Thanks! (twitter account is decoratingaddic)

Stephenie from Decorating Addiction said...

And posted on FB for a third entry "Decorating Addiction" FB page. Thanks a bunch!

I think I would pick the Casablanca. I've been wanting to do a pattern in my guest bathroom, without the commitment of wallpaper, this would be perfect. Crossing my fingers. Take Care, Carrie

Sarah M. said...

The Damask stencil is my absolute favorite. Would love to use this on our office walls.

Bobi said...

I have been eyeing the Casablanca all over stencil for some time now. I even attempted making my own, but it didn't quite work. I would love to use this in my very girly home office!

Kristin said...

damask stencil flora - i'd go crazy in my new dining room!

Karen said...

The Hermitage Acanthus Coffer Stencil is beautiful! However, I would most likely choose the Hourglass Stencil for a first project.

Chantel said...

This is so funny that you are doing a give away for this. I just ordered one of their stencils but would LOVE to get the crazy daisy flower stencil to do my girls room and curtains with it. I love the simplicity of this idea. I would love to win!!

Jeanne said...

I am just finishing painting the first floor. I have been planning to do a stencil in the powder Room. I have never tried a stencil before. I think the Damask Stencil Anna would be perfect. The pattern blends nicely with the bronze light fixture. Right now the wall is in dark teal. I would blend teal, green and white together on the wall and then do the stencil on top in bronze... I THINK. It is scary the first time . Thanks for the give away

Rosemariee said...

I like the Damask Diamond Stencil, but this would be hard to choose my absolute favorite if I won. I think I would love to do this as an alternative to wallpaper when I get my own house. Maybe on one wall in a room...

Nancy said...

I LOVE the Damask Stencil Anna. I have used stencilling on my walls over the years, but since we moved to Texas a couple of years ago I have not seen anything I like until I saw Lauren's wall.

Lolo said...

So cool! I have been thinking of doing a stencil in my daughters room. I love the Marie-Antoinette Ceiling Medallion Stencil! I keep thinkin' how gorgeous would that look on the ceiling with her vintage chandelier. What a neat giveaway... Thanks Melaine!

Sandy said...

Love these stencils-The Large Tree and Birds are some of my favorites...

Brenda said...

I checked out every category - seems I love them all - but my favorite is the weeping cherry stencil from the new group -- I would use it to create a focal wall behind my bed - painted in a soft grey with the stencil in one of Benjamin Moore's new metallic paints - maybe a pale blue

Hana said...

I love the Damask Birds of Paradise. I'm going to re-do my two little girls room in a shade of gray and I'd love to do a bit of stenciling on one wall in a slightly different shade and maybe a different sheen just to give it some subtle elegance. Thank you for the giveaway!

Hana

The Flying Birds Stencils set would be a great start for me. I love the example shown on the ceiling and have the perfect spot to do just that. But, I could also see some going down one of the hallways.

LaurelK said...

Silence Wall Pattern! Love it. Outside one of our bedroom windows is a Aspen tree, and in winter it is so beautiful, with the white bark, and the dark branches. This would go in my walk in closet to add some style to my walls, instead of the clothes being the only style in there!

Jackie said...

Love the give away! I like the Lilly Scroll stencil. A great project to start the new year~painting and then stencil my living room.

Annie said...

Love the damsk stencil. I would use it in my tiny powder room to make it POP! Plus I would be able to get it done fast and feel like I had accomplished something.:)

City Girl Turns Country said...

Love the Japanese Maple Leaf to put around my dining room lighting..

The Sundseths said...

I would do the damask stencil Anna. I want to do it on my headboard wall only in the master bedroom! It has such large walls and it is a flat dark grey color. It needs something!

michelle Maki said...

I'd love try the Casablanca on my kitchen walls to imitate tiles.

Sarah said...

I like the damask or the classical stencils. I can see so many options. A touch of something extra on a wall. A framed clock or wall hanging. An accent on door. But my favorite is the Damask Anna- would love to finish my living room with a gorgeous stencil like that.

Sharon said...

My favorite is Birds on a Branch in the Wall Art category. I would love to put it over my bed.

Vicki said...

Wow, great timing... I was rethinking of painting my dining room, but a metallic paint in the Poppy Allover design would be fabulous! Maybe that is the answer to my paint dilemma. Thanks!!

Missy said...

I love the Hermitage Acanthus Coffer Stencil, it would look great on a coffer ceiling, the middle of a table, or on the wall in a grid pattern (but that would take a complete commitment). Thanks for the resource, love it!

Cherie B said...

Love the Damasque Wall stencil.
I would use it in my freshly painted dining room.
Also working on changing the spare bedroom into a craft/scrapbook room with some pink and black. Would surely use that in there! OR even the chandelier stencil there!

Patsy said...

In Love with the Lily Scroll stencil.
So many things I think of to do with it. Love to have it on my bedroom walls with some metallic paints in pearl tones so when the light from a chandelier or a candle hits it you can watch it glow.

Absolutely would have to stencil some pillows too!
Thanks!!

Heather said...

Oh wow I think I would like the Westbury Stair Riser Stencil the most. Gorgeous stuff!!!

Shannon said...

I love the Damasque Wall Stencil in small. I would use it for a frame that my husband is building for our bedroom! Thanks!

Liesl from The Little Road Said Go! said...

I really love the Acacia Allover stencil! It reminds me of pinecones! I also made my husband go through all of these and... well lets just say I picked the one he likes the leest! Neener Neener!

To make it worse for him, Im thinking about doing a whole stenciled accent wall in our bedroom!

just me... said...

My favorite is the Casablanca Allover. I want to do glossy black over flat black on the wall with the mirror in my bathroom. I think it would look so striking.

Cecilia said...

My favorite is the Damask stencil verde. My fiance and I just purchased our first home, and this would be a great way to give some personality to our bedroom. Right now, we have a plain white upholstered headboard, and I think that this would be the perfect accent to that wall.
Thank you!

Marian said...

The are all fabulous!! Any of the damask patterns would be my choice!

Crystal said...

I stumbled across your blog yesterday and what a great time to do so! I love the Damask Oceana stencil and think it would be great on a piece of fabric to use on canvas for a wall hanging in my dining room!!

Andrea said...

My favorite is the Damask Stencil Anna. I live in an old house that has the original Lincrusta that goes up the stairs and down the hall wainscot height. I would use the Anna stencil in my daughter's room, cream on a barely there pink. Perfect for 8 and 5 year girls because it would be interesting without being overwhelming.

Tammy said...

My favorite...Peony Dream Wall Pattern Kit
What would I do with it?...stencil it onto my large linen lampshades in my bedroom

LukesLove said...

SOooooo hard to choose - I think I might go with the Splash Wall Pattern kit because that would give me some different options... I also like the Spring Songbirds....

Sara said...

The Japanese Maple Leaves one on the ceiling is INTENSE! I LOVE IT! I'd definitly use it in my vaulted foyer---of course this means I'll need to get a new light ;)

lacieleigh said...

I am in LOVE with anything Damask! So I would definately have to go with the Damask wall srencil. Its just beautiful.

Dawn said...

I would love to put the $40 towards the Ultimate Faux Fresco Stencil Kit. I am in the process of sanding my linen cabinets at the top of my stairs that overlook the living room. I plan on painting from flat black with worn edges and these stencils would look perfect in the 8 panels of the cabinet faces! I love it!

kathy said...

I would so choose the Missing Link and use it in my powder room with metallic pewter and glossy white paint - yum!!

Karina Rigtrup said...

Damask Stencil Anna...absolute favorite!!!

Catherine said...

I love the Sakura and Birds wall art stencil. My master bathroom is done in a zen theme, with a small fountain, and sand/rock garden and the Sakura and Birds stencil would be perfect for the empty wall over my tub.

Sharon said...

I would love the Lilly scroll stencil for my Dining Room! I've been wanting to start painting in there and this would really be a fun project! What a great give-away! Would love to get picked!

Jill said...

I love the Hourglass Allover stenci! charityd AT centurytel DOT net

indiansummer said...

Cruel, Melaine. You don't tell someone who is decision-making-impaired to go to this website and choose ONE, LOL!

I have always wanted lemons painted around my kitchen, so I guess I'd pick the Fruit Assortment from the Fresco stencils. (I also love practically every single one of the bird and dandelion stencils under the Wall Art section; would love to use them in the bedroom.)

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Jeanie B said...

OMG - the Lily Scroll Stencil is BEEEEEE-U-TIFUL! I love it & I think it really needs to be on my powder room walls! :-)
