Welcome to the ALTENEW FEBRUARY 2020 STENCILS/DECALS/STAND_ALONE DIES RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Laurie's blog ( a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post.
With so many ALTENEW beautiful products to chose from, it was so easy to combine a few of them to create unique projects. Let me show you:
The new Open Blooms 3d die set can help you recreate the beautiful flowers you see in the page. I pulled the Shades of Purple, Green Meadows, and Red Cherry Gradient cardstock to create the florals. The fine lines of the Diamond Frames die set create the perfect background for the page.
To finish the page, i cut a small label with the Nesting Frame dies and added the title inside it. I love how this turned out and now my sister in law can starting adding her memories!
HI HELLO YOU
For this page, i used the new Hand Drawn Tile stencil and a few of the Altenew crips ink. I started by masking the stencil so that i can only get the center impression of the stencil and form the tile pattern on the title page. I used two color inks and my blending brush to construct the background.
I cut a piece of vellum to fit in the center tile, and then used the Bold Greetings Die Set to cut the title sentiment for the page from glitter paper that matched the colors of the page. This page came together quickly and i love the title pattern on the layout.
MY FAVORITE PLACE TO BE IS WHERE YOU ARE
Nothing is more satisfying than to build a scrapbook page from scratch, such as the case of this layout. I used the Blooming Dahlia and Tranquil Wings stencil set to create the embellishments and background for the page.
This time, i used a fine liner and the Bursting Dahlia stencil as the template to draw a few of the flowers, then used the new Artitst Watercolor palette to detail the flowers. I used a bit of rose gold texture paste to add the centers on the flowers and repeated it on the background, too.
All flowers need butterflies! i used the new Tranquil Wings stencil set to create the butterfly. First i used Chamomile ink to create the background of the butterfly. Then used a stencil brush and gold glaze to create the details in the wings, and finally added the thorax of the butterfly with a palette knife. The combination of the techniques bring texture and dimension to the page, and you can see the page come together in the following video:
Just love how this turned out, and now let's switch our focus from memory keeping to card making...
The new Dotted Starburst Embossing Cover Die is beautiful on its own, but i combined it with the Fine Frames Square Die set to create this CAS card.
First i used the Debossing cover die to embossed both white and teal cardstock. I then used the Fine Frames Square die set to cut the white panel into small squares. And attached them with foam adhesive to the teal pannel ( at the exact placement).
I finished the card by adding a sentiment from the Bold Greetings sentiment die set ( i cut the word twice from glitter paper and stacked them together). Just love the simple and clean look of the card!
SENDING BIRTHDAY WISHES
I am sure that many times you stamp extra florals and set them aside for the perfect occasion. Well, i used a few of my extra stamps (BAF Triumph Tulip, BAF Begonia) to create this card. As soon as i saw the Geometric Roulette Stencil i knew it will create the perfect background for the flowers.
I used a bit of ink and a blending brush to create the panel. I set the florals on the empty space the stencil created on the center of the impression and then added a sentiment from the new Happy Birthday stamp set from the Stamping Village. Just love the pop of color in the card!
This card is probably so out of my comfort zone, but i love it!!! I am not an animal print girl, but there was something about this stencil that just needed to be in my collection. I started by adding ink onto a card panel, making sure to keep the center of the card lighter than the rest of the card. I used a stencil brush and gold texture paste to then create the impression of the Wild Leopard Stencil (making sure to keep a clean edge around the panel).
This time, i cut the sentiment 3 times from double cardstock, and once from metallic black paper using the Fancy For You die set . I stacked the die cuts together to form the dimensional diecut, and set it on the center of the card. Just love how this turned out!
And now i am done! I created quite a few projects for this hop, since working with stencils and dies make paper crafting simple and easy. I hope these have inspire you to check the new Altenew goodies.
