Here are some close-up photos on all the cards that I shared in the video tutorial above.
sunburst stencil card
Here is a lovely Christmas card where I used the Sunburst Stencil( ALTN | SSS ) to create and interesting background. I used a spray over the stencil for a tone on tone look and added some glitter too!
Add any focal point on top…. I went with a combination of stamps from the Brilliant Baubles Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS | SBC ) and the Holiday Bow Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS | SBC ).
flowing hearts stencil
Just for a change here is a card not Christmas related! This gorgeous heart was made using distress inks over the Flowing Hearts Stencil( ALTN | SSS ).
Stencils provide an easy way to create an interesting background to add your focal points on top. They can be really subtle or really help everything pop up, like this example! The stencil used here is the Skylight Stencil( ALTN | SSS ). I used gold paste for texture and shine. Perfect for the occasion !
beveled squares stencil
And here is my last card for today… something completely different and perfect for those you love geometric shapes! This is the
Beveled Squares Stencil( ALTN | SSS ) and I used paste only on part of it to create this design. Again I used silver paste for texture and shine and finished my card with some silver confetti.

The ink combo on your love card is precious! Tattered Rose is my fave Distress color. I think the silver card comes a close second. I need to remind myself that I should make a stencil work for me, and look at it from different angles. Thanks as always for the inspiration.

What a fantastic set of cards! I’m not yet tired of holiday cards (which is good, since I still have many to make), but I also love seeing some of the other uses of these products, too. And that metallic paste is amazing. I think my favorite is the final card, just because it feels very different from some of the other cards I’ve seen, and that’s always a treat. Thanks for sharing with us!
Hello Vicky. Fabulous cards – am loving all the new stencils etc. from the Altenew release. Your cards make the best use of all of them and the finished products are just stunning.
