stenciled cards

Altenew has released new stencils and today we celebrate with a blog hop! The best way to showcase the new stencils with tons of inspiration and lots of giveaways! You should have arrived here from Paige Evans blog. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please go to Altenew Card Blog. Scroll down to see the new products, my 5 stenciled cards and to join the giveaway.

I love stencils and I had to make not one but 5 cards to share today. So here are all my stenciled cards!

card 1

For my first card I used the Flowing Drops stencil and glimmer paste. For the sentiment I spelled the word HELLO using dies from the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

card 2

Here is one more card with glimmer paste, this time using the Elegant swirls stencil. A lovely elegant wedding card. The sentiment is from the Script Words Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) which is one of those sets I go back to again and again. The flower was put together by using the Rose Flurries 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ).

I used Tonic Studios Cardstock, it’s the Satin – Frosted Silver ( SBC | SSS ) that ads an extra touch of elegance as every satin cardstock in their collection.

card 3

Now this is a card I went crazy with! I first created the background with the Aztec motif stencil and distress oxide inks. And then the idea came into my head… I just had to add fringes!

The sentiment is from the Script Words Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

card 4

Here is a super simple card! All I did was to create the lovely background with the step builder stencil and distress oxide inks. Then I used the Thinking of You Die( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) for my sentiment.

Can you see all the dimension? I used the Sizzix – Foam Adhesive Sheets ( SBC | SSS ) that work great and they cut easily through my big shot. I just had to run it a couple of times to make sure I got a clean cut. The foam gets squezzed but gets back to shape in no time.

card 5

For my last card I worked on blue cardstock with the city scene stencil and distress oxide inks. Start with light blues and go darker as you move your stencil down. This creates the illusion of depth and it’s so easy to make!

The “thanks” sentiment is a die cut from the Script Words 2 Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). I also white embossed one more sentiment to complete my card from the Leaf Canopy Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ).

  41. The molded lines stencil is my favorite. Once again Vicky your work is amazing! God has definitely given you a talent.

  42. All the cards are amazing and there’s lots of great inspiration, but since I love that city scenes stencil, I’ll say that my favorite card is the one using it!

  43. I love all the stencils but I think the Aztec is my favorite because it is so different!

  52. These are beautiful cards. Thank you for the inspiration. I love the elegant swirl stencil. Definitely on my wish list!

  53. You are so creative! I love all the cards and stencils because you make it seem so easy. If I had to pick only one it would be the Aztec stencil. It’s unique, uses several patterns which can be used in part or whole. One stencil, many designs!

  54. A tough decision for me LOL, I love the Flowing Drops stencil and the Elegant swirls stencil so much. If I had to pick only 1 then it would probably be the Flowing Drops since I am a “water girl” (I love all things “water”). I have not tried glimmer paste with stencils yet but your cards are so beautiful I think that is next on my list! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  55. Vicky, all of your cards are so amazing, but if I have to pick one favorite, I guess I’ll choose the moody city scapes design! I just love the dark, moody vibe of this card- so unique! These stencils are amazing! : )

  56. These are some more spectacular and unique stencils. Love the amazing results that you achieved with these, and I already have some on my wish list. Thanks for the inspiration!

    You always come up with the most simple yet creative cards. Love what you have done with these stencils—even though you ‘made’ me put two more in my cart!!! Great work!

  58. I think all your cards are beautiful. I especially like the city scene and step builder backgrounds.

  59. Lovely applications of these versatile stencils! Looking forward to using these. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

  60. Your cards are gorgeous! I love the use of glimmer paste-so sparkly and elegant. The Fringe is a wonderful addition. It gives a real southwestern look. The Cityscape it’s beautiful-love the layered look. Thanks for showing the step stencil. I wasn’t sure how to use it.

  61. I love stencils!! They are not expensive and provide so much variety to cards. Your examples are fantastic!! I live in the Southwest US where there is so much Native American influence in art, food, and architecture, so the Aztec motif really jumped out at me. Gorgeous!!

  62. I love all your cards. The glimmer paste is perfect with the stencils. I just love your beaded strings with the Aztec Motif stencil and the way you doubled up your City Scene stencil looks amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  63. My favorite is the congrats card. The white glimmer paste with the silver paper is so elegant.

  64. These cards are all so beautiful, and your videos are always very helpful. My favorite stencil is most definitely the Aztec one! Thanks for the chance to win!

  65. My two favorite cards are the skyline which is absolutely amazing and the elegant wedding card. Beautiful!!

  66. My favorite of these stencils is the “flowing drops”. But as usual all your cards are spectacular. The “city scene” one is really very special. Thanks for the prize.

  67. Gosh! I am torn between the Aztec stencil and the Cityscape! I could see uses for both of those for years to come!!

  68. I’m not sure that my first comment showed up. I wanted to make sure to thank you for the video. I love all of these cards-especially the Aztec Motif with the Fringe.

  69. The Aztec stencil card is unbelievably creative, gorgeous and fun!! So memorable!! BRAVO! Off to buy it now…. lol

  70. I like the glitter shinning through on the Hello card and really like the tassels you added

  71. All the stencils are great, and you did an amazing job showcasing them. I love how you did the background for number 4. It really stands out. Thanks so much for sharing.

  72. It’s so hard to choose, they’re all useful and beautiful, but I think the city skyline stencil is my favorite.

  73. Your work is amazing as always, you are such an inspiration! I love the movement created by the flowing drops stencil, it’s my favourite.

  74. Oh my goodness, such wonderful cards. I think the Aztec card is my favorite as it is so unusual. Thank you for sharing.

  75. I love the flowing drops stencil and the Aztec stencil. I can’t pick one or the other now. Lol I originally liked the flowing drops stencil better than the others!

  76. What great cards, love those new stencils. Especially the flowing drops and the step builder, but they all look very good indeed.

  77. I was fascinated by the step builder stencil you used on card 4. So many possibilities! Thanks for all your unique ideas!

  78. Love all the cards but I think the cityscape is my favorite. Thanks for great videos on your blog!

  79. I love the cityscape stencil….but I can’t resist glitter – so the “hello” card is right up my alley! I’m a newbie card maker, so I’m loving the inspiration!

  80. So many wonderful stencils it is hard to pick just one! I will have to go with Caligraphy Maze because that is the one my children want badly, but I see most of these coming home! You did a fab job showcasing them, thanks for the inspiration!

  81. I love all the new stencils and I would have said the elegant swirls was my favorite but I love the city scape card, beautiful. Thanks!

  84. Fantastic cards, Vicky! I love what you did with all of the stencils, but that Aztec card is gorgeous! Adding the fringe to the design was brilliant!

  89. Your wedding card is gorgeous! I love how you die cut the flowers in the silver cardstock. The Aztec card is fabulous and I love the way you added nuvo drops and string to your design. The remaining cards are also very nice. I love the colors you chose and the stencils. Thanks for inspiring me!

  90. Its hard to decide between glitter and fibers, both are beautiful, but I think fibers win! Love the Aztec card!

  96. I liked elegant swirls stencil best because you used it for the wedding card. So elegant.

  97. Gosh Vicky, do I really have to pick just one? They are all amazing! The Aztec stencil is so beautiful and the City Scape stencil makes my ❤️ happy. But if one is all I get to pick, I’m going for the blue glimmer paste from the Flowing Drops stencil! It’s simply gorgeous!

  98. So hard to choose a favourite! They have so many possibilities! But I can’t wait to use the skyline stencil for a friend who lives in NYC 🙂

  99. Vicky, all of your cards are stunning! I must say my favourite is the city scape, CAS, yet with so much depth & now a lot of work to accomplish it.
