Stenciled cards | Altenew Blog Hop & Giveaway

Altenew has released new stencils and today we celebrate with a blog hop! The best way to showcase the new stencils with tons of inspiration and lots of giveaways! You should have arrived here from Paige Evans blog. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please go to Altenew Card Blog. Scroll down to see the new products, my 5 stenciled cards and to join the giveaway.

I love stencils and I had to make not one but 5 cards to share today. So here are all my stenciled cards!

card 1

For my first card I used the Flowing Drops stencil and glimmer paste. For the sentiment I spelled the word HELLO using dies from the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

card 2

Here is one more card with glimmer paste, this time using the Elegant swirls stencil. A lovely elegant wedding card. The sentiment is from the Script Words Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) which is one of those sets I go back to again and again. The flower was put together by using the Rose Flurries 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ).

I used Tonic Studios Cardstock, it’s the Satin – Frosted Silver ( SBC | SSS ) that ads an extra touch of elegance as every satin cardstock in their collection.

card 3

Now this is a card I went crazy with! I first created the background with the Aztec motif stencil and distress oxide inks. And then the idea came into my head… I just had to add fringes!

The sentiment is from the Script Words Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

card 4

Here is a super simple card! All I did was to create the lovely background with the step builder stencil and distress oxide inks. Then I used the Thinking of You Die( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) for my sentiment.

Can you see all the dimension? I used the Sizzix – Foam Adhesive Sheets ( SBC | SSS ) that work great and they cut easily through my big shot. I just had to run it a couple of times to make sure I got a clean cut. The foam gets squezzed but gets back to shape in no time.

card 5

For my last card I worked on blue cardstock with the city scene stencil and distress oxide inks. Start with light blues and go darker as you move your stencil down. This creates the illusion of depth and it’s so easy to make!

The “thanks” sentiment is a die cut from the Script Words 2 Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). I also white embossed one more sentiment to complete my card from the Leaf Canopy Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ).

    All your cards are wonderful,as always! Loved the way you made the fringe card, very creative! My favorite stencil has to be the step builder though, I can see lots of ways to use it! Thanks for all the great ideas on these lovely cards!

      I love that you used glimmer paste (which, apparently I need now!) on the first card. The Step Builder is my fav tho. I love the colors you used on that one!

    They’re all wonderful, Vicky. I think the cityscape might be my favorite and I like how you flipped over the stencil to get the pattern on the Thinking of You card. So many great products!

    Hi Vicky! You’ve been soooo busy! Your “hello” card is stunningly glamorous! The “congrats” card is elegantly drop dead gorgeous! “Hugs” is amazing…love the fringe…gives it a Native American feel…glad you went crazy with it 😉 This Aztec motif stencil is my favorite! “Thinking of You” is such a lovely dimensional piece. The “Thanks” card has a very thoughtful depth to it. Wow! What’s not to love…Thanks for sharing 🙂
