Altenew July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post 
https://altenewblog.com/?p=33910

Yay, it's Stencil Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
If you arrive from Altenew Scrapbook Blog, you are in the right place!
All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog

I don't know about you, but I absolutely LOVE stencils.
Stencils are generally inexpensive. You can stamp, emboss, flip and turn them...stencil them!
The advantage of stencils is that you can reuse it repeatedly and mass-produced easily.
In this release, there are so. many. to choose from and I finally narrowed down to 4 stencils to use.😀
All products used are highlighted and/or listed in LinkDeli.

Stencil feature #1: Diamond Builder Stencil
Altenew-DiamondBuilderStencil-Virginia#1  

 I used festive and bright colors to create this diamond background. I was inspired by the Mardi Gras color combo. Since my son is turning 25, this suits the happy occasion perfectly.

Altenew-DiamondBuilderStencil-Virginia#3  

The"happy birthday" (from Inked Rose) sentiment was stamped in Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink. You can't go wrong with the GOLD!
Altenew-DiamondBuilderStencil-Virginia#2
The Bold Number Die Set really make "25" a huge statement!

Stencil feature #2: Milky Way Stencil
Altenew-MilkyWayStencil-Virginia#1

The Galxy Washi Tapeis my go-to item for creating anything gallxy-related projects. 
With the stencil in pace, I applied Altenew Embossing Paste.

Altenew-MilkyWayStencil-Virginia#3

I then topped it off with some Nuvo Glitter and (carefully took the stencil off to wash) then let dry.
I also added a Halftone Star Dies star as decoration.
Altenew-MilkyWayStencil-Virginia#2  
 I cut up the sentiment from Leaf Medallion Stamp set  and arranged them much like the milky way star.... Love that! I know, I am lucky to play with these stencils. 😃

Stencil feature #3 Bubble Wrap Stencil
Altenew-BubbleWrapStencil-FloralHeartFramedie-Virginia#1  

I applied two sets of colors with the Bubble Wrap Stencil. The mixed and overlapped colors make this card truly a stand-out.  The Floral Heart Frame Die completes the card!

Altenew-BubbleWrapStencil-FloralHeartFramedie-Virginia#3
The sentiment was again stamped in Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink
( BTW you must get that gold ink if you have not gotten one. I bought a few gold pigment inks before, but there is nothing like this one....ok? Sorry for the advertisement here 😆).  
 

Instead of gluing the heart down, I adhered two tiny pieces of Gold String Washi Tape to the heart!
It's fun to try something different, right?
Altenew-BubbleWrapStencil-FloralHeartFramedie-Virginia#2

Stencil feature #4 On the Plus Side Stencil
Altenew-OnthePlusSideStencil-PenSketchedFlowerStamp-Virginia#1
Does this card needs any intro? I mean...looook at all that glitter!

I stamped the image from the Pen-Sketched Stamp Set and also stamped another on a piece of copy paper. I then fussy cut it out and used it as a mask.

Altenew-OnthePlusSideStencil-PenSketchedFlowerStamp-Virginia#2
The floral images were lightly colored with Altenew Artist Markers.
I applied  Altenew Embossing Paste and glitter. Let dry and add sentiment.... that's it!

Great selection of cards, Virginia! I love the new stencils. My favorite way to use stencils is with the embossing paste right now. If I can get my hands on some good blending brushes, I think I'd enjoy using them that way too.

Wow.. Awesome cards!! I loved the backgrounds you created with stencils and my favorite is the one with bubble wrap stencil,looks like bokeh.

Maura said...
