Video : Altenew Stencil Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Altenew have added to their fun stencil collection and we are hopping to celebrate and you should have arrived here from VIRGINIA’s wonderful Blog.  I made some fun cards with this release, so scroll down to see them and the video that I have made showcasing the fab new Grid Stencil as well as to find out how you can WIN!

Let’s start with the cheery.  It was time to get out the Layered Cupcake stamp set and for something a little different I decided to emboss with the Grid Stencil (the video below shows you the process).

it’s ‘no line’ layered stamping today for my cupcake…

Now on to a more serious design lol. as I decided that this card would make a great sympathy design.  The background is Real Gray Cardstock and I added some silver embossing paste with the Splatter Stencil.

Altenew - Garden Treasure - Doodle Blooms - Splatter Stencil - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

The flowers were from Garden Treasure and watercoloured with Tombow markers and the leaves from the Doodle Blooms Stamp Set.  My sentiment came from the Thinking of You stamp set and heat embossed with the beautiful new Antique Silver powder.  It’s a very small font and it worked perfectly first time

I wanted a tone on tone background for my final card so I used the Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil A with the Deep Iris cardstock and the matching Crisp Dye Ink.

My flowers are from Magnolias for Her and subtly coloured with grey Copics.  I stamped a sentiment from Quilled Elegance in Deep Iris ink and popped this up on a panel beneath the flowers.

  29. Embossing the stencil works soooo well! Love your designs and compositions! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us!

  30. All 3 are really graceful presentations of hand-made cards. I was being too literal in my thinking about the splatter stencil, assuming that it could really only be used with paint….why not use it as you would any other stencil. Brilliant. Really pretty.

  31. Love how you’ve shown us the different ways these new stencils can be used – your cards are gorgeous!

  32. Love your beautiful cards, the soft subtle backgrounds are gorgeous, my fave is the splatter texture paste one.

  33. Love how you have used all three stencils – each card illustrates a different technique and I love them all!

  34. Oh, so very pretty! I just love the cupcake card! Thanks for the design idea of using embossing powder through a stencil…this is why I blog-hop! Thanks.

  35. Each of these cards is amazing, Therese, but I have to say that the most amazing things are those stencils. Well done, Altenew for creating such fun and exciting stencils! I’m trying to work out how I can afford them without hubby seeing them on the credit card account. Hahaha! 😈

  36. Adorable! I love everything about this – the colors, stamping, and especially how you stamped the panel before embossing!!!!!

  37. Your designs are always so beautiful. Love that simple dot background with the grid embossing

  38. I really like the card! I also like how you use up your craft foam after die-cutting out of the center–genius! (Yeah, I caught that!) Thanks so much. Also helpful, the tip about second generation stamping for the layered sets when you don’t have the perfect color! Great idea and very useful. Thanks again.

  39. I loved the soft look, would not have thought to leave out the outline and just use the stencil! Nice work.

  40. Thanks for the video! Never thought about embossing with stencils and now I an
    anxious to try it out. Your card is darling! Love the sweet pastel colors you used.

  41. I had no idea that stencils could be *this* beautiful and then, with your creativity, elevated to stunning! Your showcases are inspired and inspiring; the pastel palette is especially lovely!

  42. These are beautiful cards! I just love the color combinations you chose. Thank you for sharing! This is my first time visiting your blog … it won’t be my last!

  43. Gorgeous cards Therese. Love the way you used the stencil to give texture to the first card… the textured background looks wonderful on the second. So subtle but eye catching. The kaleidoscope background is lovely!

  44. Therese, these cards are absolutely beautiful! The cupcake card is as sweet as can be (pun intended). When I first saw the splatter stencil I wasn’t interested in it at all – but your gorgeous card makes me think differently.

  45. Gorgeous cards! I’ll have to give this embossed stencil technique a try. And the cupcake set is definitely on my next to buy list!

  46. All of your cards are beautiful. Each stop on this blog hop has added amazing ways to use the stencils. Thanks for creating and sharing such lovely cards.

  47. I love them. Each card. Embossing the grid makes the paper loon cottony soft. So glad you showed what you used for the design on the gray card. I loved the shards that look like glass. Never thought silver paste. Nice

  48. What a sweet cupcake card! Soft and sweet! The embossing paste on the second card really adds some great texture and the third is a vision of purple beauty! TFS!

  49. Fabulous as usual, Therese. I love the soft circles behind the cupcake and the embossing looks great. The flower layout is beautiful and I’ve pinned it for reference.

  50. The pastel colors of the first card are fantastic.
    The blue flowers on the grey is so relaxing
    and the purple really grabs you – love it
    thanks for sharing.

  51. All of your cards are beautiful! I absolutely love the cupcake card! The stencils are fantastic too!

  52. oh WOW!! These are all so gorgeous! Love all the cards but the way you used the splatter stencil on the second one is simply brilliant! Such a unique touch – love it! Thanks for the inspiration ^_^

  53. What you did with the Splatter stencil has sold me. A beautiful card. Actually I like all you’ve done

  54. I always love your cards,Therese! These are lovely and I am loving these new stencils.

  55. Embossing with stencils is new to me – I can’t wait to try this technique. Your cards are amazing!!

  56. 3 fabulous cards. Thanks for showing how to emboss with a stencil. I have tried this with dies but never with a stencil. I like the technique with no lines for the cupcake too.

  57. All 3 of your cards are fantastic and your video was great! I love your card with the splatter stencil and the Garden Treasure Flower, so beautiful.The cupcake card with the embossed texture adds so much to the card, it really looks amazing. Your final card is gorgeous too, I love that you just shaded the magnolias with greys, they really pop off the stencilled background.

  58. Love, love your cards. Your use of the stencils is awesome. Thanks for the video and sharing your amazing inspiration.

  59. Thanks so much for the video. It really helped seeing the embossing technique so clearly. Love the quiet, comforting colors of the sympathy card – using the splatter was brilliant!

  60. Love your beautiful cards! The cupcake card is amazing! Love the colors and textures! Thanks for the inspiration!

  61. Your cupcake card is so sugary sweet. Thank you for your video – fab as always. Beautiful sympathy card and I love the purple magnolias (I love anything purple)

  62. I love all your cards! Very pretty and sweet 🙂
    Thank you for sharing your time and talent and thank you for the video! Always enjoy the videos 🙂

  63. Love the idea of using a stencil to emboss, so many more possibilities! I like how you have used the splatter stencil with the texture paste, show you can use a small bit of a stencil and get a totally different affect.

  64. All three of your designs are so unique and beautiful. I especially like the way you embossed the background for the cupcake card. It’s just so gorgeous!

  65. Hi Therese ~ Your cards are all beautiful and I especially love the use of the Splatter stencil with the embossing paste on your sympathy card. Such a simple addition but it really makes your card pop. Thanks for including a how-to video…off to watch. Have a wonderful weekend. ~HUGS~

  66. This card in adorable… love the pastel colors. I look forward to all your videos.

  67. What beautiful cards! The dry embossed background from a stencil is such a great combination with the circle stamps — they belong together. Those color combination with the white magnolias and purple background is stunning! I love that card!

  68. I just have to start out by saying WOW! Your cards are stunning! The card with the cupcake is a fave because of those beautiful circles in the background and the way you did them. They almost look etherial.
    I love the cards with the blue flowers and you are right, it is a good sympathy card. That’s the one card I always have trouble making because it’s so personal and sad. I always cry reading the sympathy cards from Hallmark and my dad passed away on March 20th so we got plenty of those cards for me to cry over.
    Last but not least is your purple background card with the flowers. I really like that purple color. It’s so stunning!
    Thanks for letting us see your pretty cards and for giving us the chance to win something. I want a bunch of those stencils when I win!

  69. Wonderful cards! I love the impression on the first card and that tone on tone purple is such a bold background on the last one!

  70. Altenew has done it again! These are wonderful stencils and I love what you’ve done with them on your cards!

  71. Hello, as always your cards are great and inspiring. I have a question have you used the layered dahlia? I just received my stencil yesterday and I have played for what seams like hours and can not get it to work. Do you have any suggestions? Also a video might be helpful. Thanks

  72. The embossing with the grid stencil really does add interest to this sweet cupcake card. I really liked the use of the monochromatic purple colors with the magnolia flowers – lovely!

  73. I love the cupcake card and also the use of the silver embossing paste with the Splatter stencil on the sympathy card.

  74. Love your creative use of the new stencils. I didn’t think I would need the splatter stencil until I saw your cool and subtle embossed background on your second card.

  75. The splatter stencil was a surprise to me, yet perfect. I loved all of your cards with the stencils. They are so unbelievably darling!
