Cards with stencils | Altenew blog hop & Giveaway

Today I made 4 easy cards with stencils.

This blog post is also part of a fun blog hop! Altenew has released new stencils and ink sprays and we celebrate the release with inspiration and lots of giveaways.

video tutorial

You can enjoy the video tutorial on all the cards below or at my YouTube channel

Here are some close-up photos on all the cards that I shared in the video tutorial above.

sunburst stencil card

Here is a lovely Christmas card where I used the Sunburst Stencil( ALTN | SSS ) to create and interesting background. I used a spray over the stencil for a tone on tone look and added some glitter too!

Add any focal point on top…. I went with a combination of stamps from the Brilliant Baubles Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS | SBC ) and the Holiday Bow Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS | SBC ).

flowing hearts stencil

Just for a change here is a card not Christmas related! This gorgeous heart was made using distress inks over the Flowing Hearts Stencil( ALTN | SSS ).

skylight stencil

Stencils provide an easy way to create an interesting background to add your focal points on top. They can be really subtle or really help everything pop up, like this example! The stencil used here is the Skylight Stencil( ALTN | SSS ). I used gold paste for texture and shine. Perfect for the occasion !

beveled squares stencil

And here is my last card for today… something completely different and perfect for those you love geometric shapes! This is the
Beveled Squares Stencil( ALTN | SSS ) and I used paste only on part of it to create this design. Again I used silver paste for texture and shine and finished my card with some silver confetti.

Its so helpful to see how to use the stencils. Oh, and I never knew I could use my Stickles for stencils! Thanks for teaching me so much!

    Your cards are gorgeous! I love what you did with the beveled square stencil. I wasn’t that fond of it until I saw this card. That gold and silver paste that you used is absolutely stunning! Of course I can’t forget the glittery look on that Christmas card. It is fantastic! (Of course glitter is my favorite thing lol)

    What a fantastic set of cards! I’m not yet tired of holiday cards (which is good, since I still have many to make), but I also love seeing some of the other uses of these products, too. And that metallic paste is amazing. I think my favorite is the final card, just because it feels very different from some of the other cards I’ve seen, and that’s always a treat. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Hello Vicky. Fabulous cards – am loving all the new stencils etc. from the Altenew release. Your cards make the best use of all of them and the finished products are just stunning. Always enjoy watching you create. I’ve been on the computer for hours and can’t remember if I wished you and your family a blessed Christmas and a safe and happy 2019. If so, you’ve got double wishes – not to be sneezed at. TFS and inspiring us throughout 2018. Bev from Sydney Australia.
