Yay, it's February Stencils, Decals and Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop from Altenew!

First up, let's start with my favorite dies from this release!

#1 Feature products: Dotted Starburst Debossing Cover Die, Nesting Frame Dies 
Altenew-Dotted Starburst Debossing Cover Die-Nesting Frames Die Set-Virginia#1


This gorgeous cover die can be used in many creative ways. 
I applied the "Spotlighting" and "Inlaid/Stacked Die-cutting techniques into this card.

I lightly colored the focal point with Altenew Artist Markers and inked up the edges with Sea Breeze. The sentiment is from Ornamental Bliss Stamp Set. Altenew-Dotted Starburst Debossing Cover Die-Nesting Frames Die Set-Virginia#3

If you are wondering how I got the blue ink onto the cover plate, please come back for a simple tutorial in upcoming weeks!! 

#2 Feature products:  Hand-Drawn Tile Stencil
 Altenew-Hand-Drawn Tile Stencil-Virginia#1
 
This stencil not only comes in as TILES, it also has some beautiful borders. You are not limited to just create the tile look because you can use it for borders and frames.

For my focal point, I tiled the stencil and applied Altenew Embossing Paste first. I then added Nuvo Pure Sheen Gold Glitter over and that's it!

The Scrip Words Die Set was used in this card and next (4th ) card.
#3 Feature products: Tranquil Wings Stencil 
 Altenew-Tranquil Wings Stencil-Virginia#1

I love adding gradient effect with stencils. This Tranquil Wings Stencil is perfect for that.

The Painted Orchid Washi Tape was adhered at the bottom and I ran the Dotted Swirls Dobossing Cover Die (one of my favorite) and did the "Partial-Die-cutting".

I added some details and shine with Crystal Stickles.
