Video : Altenew February 2019 Stamp / Die / Stencil Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

WOW! It’s so easy to add colour using the new Mask Stencils from Altenew and for the release today I have made a video showing you just how. And if you are hopping along to celebrate the release then you should have arrived here from JENNIFER MCGUIRE’s incredible Blog!

I have 3 cards and one video to share today, starting with a very CAS Trendy Circle design.

I thought I would use some feminine colours to mix it up because this is normally a stamp set that I would use for more masculine cards, but not today.

My second card to me feels ‘classic’ Altenew with the Beautiful Peony Stamp Set and some bright Spring Garden Waterbrush marker colouring.

I added a subtle Baroque Motifs background embossed with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder and a Pure White sentiment from the Trendy Circles Stamp Set.

Now for the real fun, I couldn’t wait to try out these Mask Stencils to add colour, I must say I was a little doubtful that they would fit perfectly…  that’s why I have to video linked below so you can watch the whole process.

I added a Sweet Friend stamped word as well as a Sweet Hearts Wood Veneer sentiment.

  1. I love the Trendy Circles card you made and the design of those stamps. The layout and colors you used are so fresh. I also appreciate the tips and tricks you share… And your amusing insights! 🙂

  2. Gorgeous cards! I really love that black baroque background with the beautiful pink florals. I also love the way you used those circles. Lovely! TFS!

  3. And yet another beautiful stamp set. Wow, it really did look so easy to just use the masks! I think I will go that route from now on, masking for stunning results. Love the other two cards as well.

  4. Those stencils looks like fun! Such a great idea!! And that stamp set is beautiful. Glad Altenew came out with a stamp set that doesn’t involve a lot of layering! Thank you, Therese!

  5. I love the clear embossing with the baroque motifs stamp in the background. Very classy look and adds interest without being distracting.

  6. Gorgeous cards! I love the combination of the bright flowers against the black embossed/cardstock background. Very impactful. 🙂

  7. All of your cards are gorgeous! Especially the peonies on the black background! Wow! How striking! Thanks for the great inspiration!

  8. Thanks so much for the video. These masks are a stroke of genius & look to fit perfectly. Your second card offers so much to look at with the embossing on the black card stock & the beautiful peonies mounted with dimension on top. Just beautiful!

  9. As much as I love flower stamps I am surprised that I loved your Circle card the most. I have been struggling with masculine cards this month. I need to make 5 of these this month.

  10. A gorgeous trifecta. I love the soft colours of the dotted blooms. Also how you used the flourishes and the black background behind those gorgeous bright flowers. The first card is lovely and elegant.

  11. I really like the Circle Card. A great idea for a masculine card, but I love the peony card the best. They are one of my favorite flowers. Now if they could only make a scratch and sniff scent for them!

  12. I couldn’t imagine how a mask/stencil would be of benefit until I saw your video. Wow! That makes coloring so easy. Thanks! I love your pink circles card, too.

  13. Love the Beautiful Peony Stamp and Die Set, Botanical Silhouettes Stamp Set! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards.

  14. So loving the new release. Such wonderful images as always from Altenew. Love the layering stamps that they do so well. And the stencils look beautiful.

  15. All three cards are special in their own way. I adore the CAS modern look, that is hard to do! The black card base is wonderful for the flowers and the neat new stencils are a fun new way of coloring!

  16. Beautiful cards! I love the uniqueness of the Trendy circles and the Baroque Motifs make for a stunning background on your second card! Very cool stencil technique on your video- thanks for the tutorial.

  17. There are never enough hours in the day, right? Therese, I always make time for you… and you always delight! OMG that black embossed card base? Seriously fantastic!
    Off to watch you work your magic with this beautifully branching bloom! xx
    =]

  18. Three beautiful cards. I would take any one of them. My favorite is the one with the Dotted Blooms design(’cause I love that set) and I love the Baroque Motif background! 🙂

  19. Fabulous cards as always, Therese!! I really like the Trendy Circle card! I very much enjoyed your video and seeing how the mask stencils are used. Thank you!!

  20. Super helpful video and beautiful cards! Thank you for sharing and I think I’ll just have to get me one of those “life changing” tools!

  21. Thank you for the wonderful video and beautiful cards. I think I will have to purchase one of those “change your life” tools soon!

  22. I have fallen in love with so many of the new stamps in this new release…..I also love that some of them have a stencil/mask…that is great…Your cards were beautiful…thank you so much. Hugs!

  23. Beautiful cards, as usual, Therese! The video was great as well. When you’re having so much fun making your cards, I feel inspired to have fun too!

  24. Those are three very pretty cards! The sets in this release are just amazing. Really like the way you used the circles in the first card–great placement and great colors. The second card is very elegant. And, thanks for the great video. You make it look so easy–I’l have to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

  25. I really like the stencils and masks. Of course your cards are beautifully crafted. Thank you for the video. It helps to see it.

  26. Love your accent! And your card. Altenew is making it so easy with these masks to colour, or not , parts of our flowers. I love this technique you used…so much quicker than pencils or paint. Thank you for sharing your beautiful elegant card.

  27. All of your cards are beautiful as they always are. Watching the video made me smile and that is a precious gift. My pain level is very high today so to have any release from pain is so amazing. Thank you for this precious gift and thanks for sharing your art as well.🐧

  28. Lovely! I’m so glad you opted for a girly version for the circles. The set does lead to masculine but you have shown another option (typical outside the box for you I mean that as a compliment!). Love the clear embossing on black cs. Great result.

  29. Beautiful inspiring work, Theresa! Loved your second card for its classic look! Gorgeous Motif background with those Beautiful Peony watercolored so perfectly!

  30. Gorgeous card. I love the stencil and mask of the flower. It looks so easy to use when coloring. Thanks for sharing your time and talent with us.

  31. The second card with the bright/vibrant Beautiful Peony and the black on black embossed Baroque Motifs background is STUNNING Therese! This release has me stoked for starting Spring/Summer cards lol. Thank you for sharing all 3 beautiful cards and the always amazing inspiration! (mardy14@bellsouth.net)

  32. Hi Therese, Agree with you re Altenew.. they make great stamps so follows their stencils would be also. Love esp last card and the peonies. Have similar stamps but none from Altenew as yet.. one day! 😉 thanks for your great cards… and inspiration.
    Hugs Shaz in Oz

  33. The embossed black background is amazing with your gorgeous peonies, Therese. The first card is rather whimsical and the last one soft and pretty. Thanks for showing how the stencil masks work.

  34. Great cards. The black with the peony is so striking, but the clean and simple circle card is lovely too and the masked one…oh they’re all gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. This is a great Altenew release!

  35. These are so pretty! I love the black card the best, the striking contrast is just so beautiful. I love the print set and can’t wait to watercolor it!

  36. Gorgeous cards as always! I would love to see you use the circle stamp set in a couple of different ways. And I can’t wait to try out the masks!

  37. I love the range of these cards. That first one with the circles is so modern, and light and airy, but my favorite is the last. Love the new mask products!

  38. I love your cards. The peony flower is my absolute favorite. It does have that classic feel. It has Altenew written all over it. You did a fabulous job with the watercolor pens, I have bought both the Spring and Fall sets and now I have found that it is my first thing that I pick up. They are so easy to work with and so beautiful when used.

  39. Great ideas today, Therese! I really like that the stencil masks are part of the stamp/die sets now! And those new circle stamps are so creative. Can’t wait to try them out! All three cards are so lovely, but those pink peonies really pop against the black!

  40. All your cards are gorgeous. Thanks so much for demonstrating the mask stencils. I’ll never be able to afford the Life Changing Brushes, but I definitely want to try the Mask Stencils. This new release from Altenew is wonderful.

  41. Love those gorgeous peach flowers! Just got some of those brushes and was really interested to hear you describe “pouncing” the colour onto to the image. This is a fantastic release and the stencils look awesome.

  42. The embossed black on the black card stock card made me order this stamp set . So gorgeous.. and the circlur one is so fun and one of my favorite. Your last card is so gorgeous too. Amazing inspiration..thanks for sharing .

  43. I loved your video, the stencil was sooo easy to add colour. Will def have to look for some of these. Also I love the new print stamp and the bold pink and black design you created.

  44. Beautiful card! Love the way these new masks and stencils work. Perfect way to color this beautiful flower. Thanks for a helpful video full of great tips!

  45. Your florals are beautiful, Therese … and as ever, I loved seeing you create that last lovely! Have to say, those feminine, graphic, chic circles have me swooning … as does that crisp sentiment … what a stunning, stylish design! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  46. Fantastic to mix up those trending circles with the feminine colours, clever. Those peonies are devine & in such a bright colour. Really enjoyed this video, thank you for all your sharing of ideas & advice.

  47. Lovely card designs! The Dotted Blooms set is so pretty, and I love how well the masks work with the stamps. I also like the trendy circle card you made. It’s so fresh and fun!

  48. LOVE your black and pink card. I have to say I have become a YouTube stalker of your videos and beautiful creations. I have learned so much watching and listening to you. So grateful to you for generously sharing your talent!
