Altenew | Guest Designer | Blog Hop

Hi there friends! Welcome to my stop of the Altenew March 2018 release. You should of arrived here from Lilith Eeckels blog. I am so excited to be here and for this hop that is releasing some gorgeous stencils and washi and ink sprays!


I of course gravitated for the Stencils!


To start I have this vision of of gold using the newest Deco Wallpaper Stencil


This card was so much fun to make, that I made a pictorial of this card.

To begin, I am stenciling a piece of black card stock, 

I secured the stencil to my cardstock using washi tape.


Added gold glitter Bo Bunny Paste

Allowed to dry and remove stencil

Measure out a hot pink paper banner

Add sentiment, and layer flowers

Finish off with a die cut sentiment! 


Don't you love the boldness of the black gold and pink?! I sure do! 

For my second project, I have a fun ink blending creation. 

For this card, I used the Classy Stripes stencil, blended with Altenew Industrial Diamond and Silver Stone.. Stamped the sentiment,  then I splattered ALL of the sprays, placed my flower over that with foam adhesive. 
and last but not least I made this vision of pink with the Deco Wallpaper Stencil and Altenew range of pink inks! 

To make this, I began by placing my stencil over the card base and securing it down with washi tape. 

I blended the Altenew Frosty Pink

Next to the Frosty Pink, I blended Coral Berry

and lastly I added Ruby Red.


I then removed the stecil and stamped the sentiment using Pure Graphite.

Then I splattered the card with the Altenew Sprays in Jet Black, Metallic Silver, and Iridescent.


Once the sprays had dried, I placed a flower to the card with foam adhesive.


Which of these is your favorite?

  83. I appreciate that you used the art deco stencil both horizontally and vertically to show us its versatility. Both ways are just gorgeous. I love that you can get the bold look with the gold paste and the softer look with the lighter inks. I also really enjoy the gradient you made with the stripes. That's such a beautiful look underneath those lovely spatters. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us!
