Altenew November 2018 Stencil/Ink Spray Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew November 2018 Stencil and Ink Spray Release Blog Hop!!!

If you're coming from Zsoka Marko' blog you are right on track. If you want to start from the beginning of the hop, please hop over to Altenew Card Blog. 

Altenew November 2018 Stencil and Ink Spray Release includes 9 new unique stencil designs and 6 new metallic shimmer ink spray colors. I've had the pleasure to play with three new stencils and 2 gorgeous ink sprays and made three cards showcasing Sunburst, Flowing Butterfly and Feathered Leaves stencil. 

Let's get started with this holiday card featuring Sunburst stencil and Holiday Bow stamp set.


I started off by making the background panel. I inked the Sunburst stencil using an embossing ink, put it on a soft teal cardstock from New Day Card Kit, sandwiched it on an embossing mat and ran it through my cutting machine. I then white heat embossed the dry embossed panel using Pure White Crisp EP. The smaller central panel was cut using Fine Frames Cover die and dry embossed with Sunburst stencil. 


I then started coloring the poinsettia and the bow from Holiday Bow set. I stamped the bow in Lagoon, the poinsettia in Midnight Violet and the leaves in Frayed Leaf mini inks to do some no line coloring. I colored them with Altenew Artist Markers and fussy cut them all. 


I cut the teal panel slightly smaller than A2 size and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. I stamped the sentiment from Season's Greetings set in Jet Black on the small white panel and foam mounted it onto the card.  I adhered a thin white frame on the front panel to add more interest. I then arranged the poinsettia and the bow as shown in the picture. 
To finish off I colored the poinsettia with a clear glitter pen. 



On my second card I embellished an watercolored panel using Flowing Butterfly stencil and a clear glitter embossing paste. 


I started by stamping the gorgeous floral images from Floral Art stamp set on Canson watercolor paper. I stamped the flowers in Sand Dunes and the leaves in Bamboo and colored them using Altenew Watercolor Pan set.


After the colored panel was dry I applied clear glitter embossing paste on the panel over the Flowing Butterfly stencil and let it dry. The sentiment is from Leaf Canopy set. I gold heat embossed it on some vellum and cut it in a circle. I glued it on a small yellow circle and foam mounted it onto the card on a nest of some silver thread. 



My last card for today is showing the colors of Lagoon and Sunkissed metallic shimmer spray.


To create the two toned background I masked the borders of an A2 panel, placed the Feathered Leaves stencil on it and applied my embossing paste mixed with Lagoon and Sunkissed metallic shimmer spray. I sprinkled some gold and green fine glitter on it before the paste was dry.


I gold heat embossed the branches from Leaf Canopy on some watercolor paper and colored them using Lagoon and Sunkissed metallic shimmer spray. I then cut them using the coordinating die and set them aside. The shimmer of these sprays is just gorgeous! The photos don't do justice to these beautiful colors and shimmer!


After the background panel was completely dry I adhered it on a white cardbase. I cut the Leaf Canopy branches from some yellow fun foam using coordinating die to raise my colored branches. 


The sentiment was then gold heat embossed on a strip of dark teal cardstock from New Day Card Kit, embellished with a thin strip of golden cardstock and added onto the card. 


That's it from me for today! I hope I was able to inspire you with my cards!

I have to pull out all the stencils I have collecting dust. Will have to give this technique a try. Funny how things seem to go in cycles and come back again. Glad I didn’t get rid if them. Proof we're not hoarders... we just know we'll need things again eventually ;-)

Super pretty cards, I especially like the last one, love that blue and gold combination!

Annette Reed said...

Wow! All of your cards are gorgeous but that floral card is amazing! Your coloring is beautiful and I love the addition of the butterfly with clear glimmer paste. Your two toned feather stencil is beautiful as is that teal stenciled background on the first card. Your poinsettia and bow are also beautifully colored.

Annalisa Young said...

It's nice to see some more coloring-heavy cards in the middle of this stencil bloghop. And what unique ways you've used the stencils! I think my favorite is the last one, because I wouldn't have thought to put together those two colors, but they create gorgeous tones. Almost a patina bronze look. So cool. Thanks for sharing with us!

Judie said...

Wow I am in awe! I cannot decide on a favourite card!

Handmade by Hanneke said...

Anne Lee said...

These are so beautiful! You should make videos and post them... I thought the first card's embossing technique was glitter until I read that it was made using white embossing powder. Also love the look of the sunkissed and mountain mist mixed paste, gorgeous.

mindy1414 said...

All 3 cards are gorgeous! The first is my favorite only because I adore the Holiday Bow stamp set, your coloring and non-traditional colors on it are stunning and the stencil background is perfect with it. Thank you for sharing all 3 cards and the amazing inspiration! (mardy14@bellsouth.net)
