Hello everyone! Welcome to Altenew Stencil Release Blog Hop.
This is a stencil release from Altenew and there are 10 fabuous stencils released. I am so excited to be part of this release. If you have come from Lilith Eeckels ‘s blog, then you are on the right track on the blog hop. If not do not worry, I have all the participants of the blog hop listed towards the end of the hop.
I have three cards to share with you today using the three new stencils. Over this month I will share more projects using the rest of the stencils from the release.
My first project is a bright, bold and colourful card using the new Molded Lines Stencil.
I love this molded lines stencil because the lines are dramatic. Good size and curved adds to the drama. So I did simple ink sponging in rainbow colour to showcase the stencil and create the rainbow background for the card. I used distress inks here. Since the background is colourful, dramatic and showcases the stencil, I want the background to be the highlight of the card. Hence the sentiment is simple die cut stack of You Are Loved die in black. The contrast of black bold sentiment against the rainbow lines on the background is so good. I just added a few diamonds to complete the card. Here are some closeups of the card.
All supplies used to make this card are listed below.
On this card, I used the Elegant Swirls Stencil on the background. This stencil is very elegant as the name says. I did a lot of ink layering to create the background. The base of the card is kraft. I sponged distress inks in Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserve on the card front. Then I place the Elegant Swirls stencil on top and sponged the same distress inks on the stencil. This time I sponged the inks a bit heavily. Then keeping the stencil in place, I also sprayed Altenew’s Iridescent Shimmer Spray over the stencil. I left the card to dry while I made the sentiment.
Sentiment is a stack of Mega Thanks die with the shimmer die cut on the top of the stack. I adhered this sentiment at an angle on the background panel. The secondary sentiment is from Label Love stamp set. I simple stamped the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock, trimmed and adhered below the large sentiment on the bottom right of the background using foam adhesives. Finally some rhinestones in the same colours as the background to finish the card.
The final card today showcases my most favourite stencil from the release – the Aztec Motif Stencil.
I absolutely adore this design. To get this background, I sponged Altenew inks on the stencil, moved the stencil, masked some area of the stencil and sponged inks again until I covered the entire background. I chose warm earthy colours as originally these motifs are hand painted using colours made using natural materials. So most colours used with these motifs are either black and white or earthy colors.
The sentiment is from Quilled Elegance stamp set. I white heat embossed the sentiment on two strips of white cardstock and sponged the same inks from Altenew I used on the background on these strips thus coordinating with the background. I trimmed the background to 4’x5.25′ and mounted on a mustard coloured card base. I completed the card with some rhinestones.
Here are the supplies used to make this card.
