Altenew July 2020 Stencils/Enamel Dots/Creative Cutouts/Decals Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: Super-heavy photo post
It's time for Stencil/Enamel Dots Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
https://shrsl.com/2dzx6
I am super excited to share 3 stencil projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Elsie Robinson, you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog 

Feature products #1: Geometric Landscape Stencil
Altenew-GeometricLandscapeStencil-Craft-a-Flower-Tulip

Altenew is well-known for the realistic layering detailed floral images.
However, I must mention that Altenew is also awesome with geometric designs.

With the right products, you will be able to create gorgeous and timeless designs.
I used the Craft-a-Flower Tulip, Shades of Purple Gradiant Card Stock and Seashore Card Stock.

The Geometric Landscape Stencil allows you to create a wonderful background and can be used in many applications and techniques.

I chose the complimentary color yellow for the backdrop. This stencil makes the tulips a stand-out. The NEW Enamel Dots are a must-have! I love the shades, colors and sizes of these embellishments. When you add those fine touches, you want as many varieties are you can get. This is IT!

Feature products #2: Feathery Stencil and Bold Thanks Die
Altenew-FeatheryStencil-BoldThanksDie-Virginia#1

The Feathery Stencil is so beautiful and it requires little embellishments. I decided to pop up the sentiment with Rounded Rectangles.

I also incorporated some pattern into the Bold Thanks Die.

Once again, the new Enamel Dots make this design "sing"!

Feature products #3: Alpha Stencil and Alten Riding By Stamp Set
Altenew-AlphaStencil-AltenRiding By#1

I was in need of a Welcome Baby Boy card and the new Alten Riding By Stamp is simply adorable. When you see Alten, you can't help but SMILE! 
Altenew-AlphaStencil-AltenRiding By#2

The Alpha Stencil is a MUST-have, especially if you like to customize lettering and names. It offers the least expensive option and endless use of sentiment! 
Altenew-AlphaStencil-AltenRiding By#3

I love the color combo of Navy Blue and Grey. In order to fit Alten and sentiment, I had to trim off part of Alten. However, this doesn't seem to take away the fun and playful element of this card.

Thank you for showing me a good way to use a geometric shape with your first card and the Craft-a-Flower Tulip! My mind goes blank when I see geometric shapes, and I've obtained a few in this, my first year, of cardmaking. I definitely struggle with that. Your feathers card is great, too, and I love the "Oh Boy!" card! What a perfect way to welcome baby boy!
