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!
