I can not use a royal icing stencil on my buttercream cakes because I use a non-crusting buttercream. You might be able to do it on crusting buttercream.

I think if you're doing it on a buttercream cake, you'll want to use buttercream for the stencilling. Grease breaks down royal icing, and since buttercream has butter &/or shortening as a main component, the royal icing would not remain nice and neat... it'll end up all melty looking down the sides of your cake.
