Video : Altenew Stencils & Ink Sprays Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!


I’m so excited to be taking part in Altenew’s 2017 March release and blog hop, and if you arrived here from the Altenew blog then you are exactly where you need to be.  Today we are releasing 7 stencils, 12 ink sprays, 13 coloured cardstocks and 7 coloured envelopes, could it be any more wonderful!

Today I have two cards and one video to share.  And if you know me, then you know I am allergic to getting ‘inky’ fingers….  wrong hobby right? lol.  But to spray…  it’s divine (it’s the ink blending that really gets under the nails and have you ever met my friend the ‘scrubbie’  it’s a great tool to get rid of inky fingers), but I digress….  these sprays didn’t get my fingers inky at all and the shimmery finish was so worth the possibility of getting inky for sure.  What a great way to ‘colour’!
Scroll down for the video and to find out how you can WIN!

I just had to share these beautiful ink colours with you……

  58. Beautiful new ink sprays! Love the texture paste background and your method of coloring! These new stencils look like fun to play with – I need me some!

  59. Love the new sprays – gorgeous colors and love those stencils. Cool textured background on your card and I love your coloring technique!

  60. The spray looks fantastic! Love the die cut flowers from the sprayed paper and that stencil/paste background. I really like the two tone letter in the you too!

  61. I love the shimmer ink spray! It looks like so much fun! Can it also be used on fabric? I’d love to use it on a tee shirt and do what you did with your cards that looks like splash painting. Great cards and how fun it looks to use. I want some! I’d also like a heat gun. I had one but due to a freezer incident, which you don’t want to hear all about, I blew out mine! I need a new one so I can emboss again. Mine was a PSX gun but as you know, PSX went out of business a long time ago. The new releases are colorful and fun to use. Love them all!

  62. I loved your cards. I am just getting into stencils and am quite taken with what you can do with them. I haven’t played with foil but you have inspired me to spread my wings in that area now!

  64. This is the most beautiful cards I’ve ever seen….. love,love, LOVE the idea of coloring the stamps with spray inks. Thanks for the idea and change to win 😘

  66. Amazing cards Therese, i have probably said this before but it merits saying it again – I applaud your creativity!! Stunning 🙂 LOVE, love love what you have done 🙂

  70. Those sprays are SO yummy and I love them paired with these flowers! And that stencil – it was made for embossing paste. Love it!

  71. Love, love, love the cards you made and the techniques you used! Especially the second card with the gorgeous splashes or sprays of color you used on the flower you made! I cant wait to get lots of Turcos sprays myself, including some stencils. I’m loving so much, it’s hard to choose from. But that’s the way it goes with arts & crafts! lol 😉

    1. Sorry, my auto correct typed out the word “Turcos” for some reason and I was trying to say, “I can’t wait to get lots of the sprays myself…” Goofy auto correct. lol

  72. Well that was a super easy way to color flowers! The gold accents added so much to the card! Thanks for lots of fun ideas.
