Video : Altenew November 2018 Stencil / Ink Spray Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Hey, are you hopping?  And are you having fun?  I certainly am, it’s time for an Altenew Stencil and Ink Spray release and you should have arrived here from KRISTINA’s fabulous Blog!

I have three cards and a video to share with you today starting with an ombre blended background and gee these new ‘Green Valley’ Altenew inks blended so well with this stencil and it’s not my technique, because as you know blending isn’t one of my strengths lol.

Altenew - Feathered Leaves - Birds of a Feather - Therese Calvird (card) 1

I used the Feathered Stencil and I must have been on a bird kick as I stamped out one of the Birds of a Feather nestling in some Wild Ferns.

I did a simple Mountain Mist Metallic Spray with the Wavy Grid Stencil for the background and seriously, you can see the metallic shimmer IRL.

I added a Inked Rose coloured with Altenew Artist Markers and a simple sentiment from the Thinking of You Stamp Set.

My final design has a video and I share with you yet another embossing technique and the stencil I used this time is called Sunburst.

I also thought it would be fun to do some watercolouring, but I didn’t use the Altenew palette or the Waterbrush Markers…  can you guess what I used???

  1. Gorgeous as usual. Wish all the delicious qualities of the ink sprays translated better in the videos. But I have every confidence that they are as gorgeous as you say they are.

  2. You made me giggle with this one.
    You said, You can’t really see the embossing well, because it’s a clean and simple card.” You then proceeded to splatter black ink all over it.

    Sorry, it made me laugh!
    Nice card tho. 😉

  3. I like that you used the new inks to color the flower on the last card. Looks awesome! I bet IRL it looks even better. They all look great.

  4. Beautiful card, Therese! Your videos always makes me smile. Love your sense of humor…
    Thanks so much for sharing your talent.

  5. True confession time? I’m a hoarder too. But don’t tell anyone as I’m still in denial about it!!!!!! I am starting to push myself a bit to use what I have instead of holding on to what I have. It’s a hard habit to break. Is there a 12 Step program for a hoarding problem????!!!!!! Anyway, I often times get stuck on how to use the stencils I have. I don’t understand the block, but am well aware it’s there. So, I appreciate the reminder that using them to dry emboss is another possibility. Thanks, Therese!!

  6. The Feathered Stencil gives such a great organic background. I forget that stencils are also little embossers. Thanks for the reminder.

  7. Your last card is my favorite! That “Charmed” stamp set has been on my wish list for so long! And I love the subtle use of the stencil underneath!

  8. I can’t decide if I love that beautiful bird or the purple flower the most. These cards are stunning!!!!

  9. Beautiful cards, love the dry embossed technique too! Thanks for the great reminder to get more out of those stencils. The feather stencil looks sooooo pretty with the sweet bird and I’m into to birds these days (in spring it may change to butterflies, lol).

  10. Awesome technique embossing with stencils, I must try that soon.
    Love your water colored bouquet Therese, beautiful combination of pretty shades.
    Thank you for the amazing video and inspiration and for the chance to win.
    Hugs.
    Maria Rodriguez.

  11. I loved the way you used the Sunburst stencil to make the card’s background. I love those new spray colors and how you used them to color the flowers.

  12. Wow! Just beautiful cards as usual! 💛✨I just love your colors. (Greens and blues on your bird, aqua and lavender, and then happy oranges!) Altenew’s stencils are amazing and this new batch is no exception. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas and inspiration! 💫🌸🍀

  13. Therese, You are a wonder! This card is excellent! Your video is excellent as well! Thanks for this demo and your ability to make simple, easily understood directions!

  14. These are beautiful. My favorite is the one with the charmed stamp set. I love that set. I like the idea of using the stencils for embossing ,because my storage for embossing folders is full and I can use my stencils and won’t have to buy more folders (so she said…LOL!)! I can buy more stencils. That storage isn’t full yet! 🙂

  15. Gosh, Therese … that bird in the tropical forest is gorgeous … and what a beautiful colour combo on the rose card! Love the final floral cluster against the subtle embossing … that Charmed set is in my basket at this very moment, so I’m delighted to see you colouring it and making it look so stunning! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  16. Thanks to you for reminding me about using stencils for background! I have beautiful stencils that only have been pulled out to use with mousse or paste but this will launch me into some Christmas background ideas! Thanks to your beautiful card your shared here!

  17. Wonderful cards, fantastic new release from Altenew, and am loving your card with the embossed background (another use for our stencils) and apricot/orange flowers, it is so pretty. These spray colours are amazing. Thank you for sharing and for your inspiration Therese.

  18. What a great idea to watercolour with gorgeous shimmery sprays. Love the bold bright colours Therese. Thanks for showing how to emboss with a stencil.

  19. Love all the cards that you made. I love to watch you color in real time, you seem so relaxed and enjoying the process.

  20. Well very pretty indeed. I had a laugh as I thought I was the only nutcase who took out paper admired it and put it away again with out cutting it out. I do the same with quilting material… it cheers you up and then you can put it all away again for next time you need a pick me up.

  21. Thank you for sharing your cards. I love what you did with the feathered stencil. And also appreciate the stencil embossing video.

  22. very pretty card, but over 3 days!!! I thought I was the only one that did things like that .. haha .. also love the new release stencils, would love to see more about how to use them creatively

  23. The bird card is adorable. And your coloring of the orange cards is great – a good reminder that metallic sprays can be used in a different way.

  24. Were! Thanks for demonstrating how to emboss with stencils. I’d heard of that a long time ago but it’s just one of those things I’ve never tried. Now I will! Just lovely cards here. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  25. I had never thought of dry embossing with my stencils. Super genius idea. And I LOVE the ink sprays. I only have two and just used them for the rare journal page. Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  26. Wow! The Feathered stencil sure looks great with the Wild Ferns. Each of your stencil projects look wonderful and thanks for the stenciling tips.

  27. Each card is very lovely! I was happy to learn how to use the stencil as an embosser and OMGosh! Watercoloring with the inks! Gorgeous and very cool!

  28. So beautiful yet again Therese! I havent yet tried the ink sprays, but they look sparkly and awesome. The inked rose stamp looks beautiful coloured up too.
    Keep up the fantastic work, absolutely love your tutorials.
    T x

  29. I loved the card you did on you tube! I have tried to emboss with my stencils but so far it has not worked. So now I know to try a little thicker shim! Thank you for sharing your techniques with us!

  30. I love how you used the oranges and pinks in those flowers. Your a very talented card maker. Love your sense of humor. Good luck!

  31. Pretty stuff! It’s interesting how adding black splatter to the background just dials up the whole design. Luv it!

  32. Love your cards! I have never embossed with a stencil so I really enjoyed your video. I am loving this release. Can’t wait to try some new things!

  33. You always create cards that give me inspiration to try some new techniques. Each of these is lovely so I’ll definitely be blending & embossing with stencils in the near future.

  34. Love that you water colored with the ink sprays. I haven’t tried them yet, didn’t realized they had shimmer. They are now on my wish list.

  35. Your cards are fabulous! Like you, I fell in love with the orange spray. The stencils you used are some of my favorites. Thanks for the inspiration.

  36. Your cards are beautiful and love the dry embossing technique with the stencil. You amaze me with your brilliant ideas.

  37. All the cards are fabulous and loved the watercolouring of your flower with the sprays. The embossed background turned out so pretty

  38. I haven’t watched the video yet as I’m a little behind, just now watching your inlaid die cut video but did you use the ink pads? Love your cards and especially the last one, looking forward to that video! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  39. I have never thought to use my stencils like this. The new sprays are Awesome. Thankyou for sharing these beautiful cards

  40. WoW! These are all so beautiful! I can’t even begin to choose a favourite. You’ve done it again Altenew. And these cards are simply beautiful!

  41. I love stencils and these new ones are so wonderful. Love your lovely bird on those green feathers. Great color. Happy stenciling…..

  42. I realize the focus of this bloghop is the stencils and ink sprays (which are lovely), but I have to mention how much I love the soft coloring of your bird. It looks amazing; I just want to keep staring at it! And the way that the feathered background and the fern stamp set work together is just lovely. Thanks for sharing with us!

  43. Fantastic cards! That feather stencil was perfect for the bird theme and looks great. I love the metallic spray on your second card. It is a stunning card. I’ve never thought about water coloring with the sprays. What a cool idea! I’m going to have to try that.

  44. Your cards are beautiful! I am new to card making and had no idea what dry embossing was until I saw your video. I love the sunburst stencil and now have a new technique to try!

  45. As always, your creations are just so pretty. What a fantastic ideas to use your sprays to watercolor. A good way to stretch your supplies.

  46. Therese, you always make such beautiful cards. I love the way you used the sprays on the stencils. What a great technique. Keep bringing us new ideas!!

  47. Beautiful cards! Thanks so much for the great video. I didn’t know I could emboss with my stencils. Didn’t realize the ink sprays could be used to watercolor either. Thanks!

  48. Beautiful cards! I love these stencils and ink sprays- it’s amazing how much you can do with both of these products! You’ve reminded me to emboss with my stencils.

  49. So glad I went back to the beginning to review each of the participants as somehow I missed you the first time through Therese. Loved the ‘waiting for the ink to dry’ comment. Bit like waiting for paint to dry, or grass to grow. I had a good chuckle 🙂

  50. I’ve tried ink sprays before but I always make such a mess — I love the idea of water coloring with them. I also love the dry embossing with stencils technique. Your cards are so gorgeous as are these wonderful new stencils and ink spray colors.

  51. I think your cards are a breath of fresh air, the colors are so light it just makes one happy looking at them. By the way, Merry Christmas and I hope everyone has a lovely holiday!

  52. Gorgeous cards, I always really enjoy watching your video’s, you make them fun & full of advice. Thank you for sharing another.

  53. What a great way to use the new Altenew inks and stencils. Ingenious. Opens up a new world for us. Gorgeous cards.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
