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

close-up photos

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.
