Stamps with matching stencils

Today I have a fun video tutorial showing you what you can do with stamps with matching stencils!

New Altenew products have just been released and I am using many of them in this video tutorial. As always the release is packed with wonderful stamp sets and lovely new ink colors. You will see most of them in action in the video below.

This blog post is also part of a blog hop with inspiration and lots of giveaways.

For this card I used the Versatile Vases Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) with the Prettiest Pomander Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ). The flowers are popped up on my card but the vase isn’t. So to create my background I used masking and stenciling techniques with the Versatile Vases Mask Stencil( ALTN | SSS ).

For the next card I created the same pattern using different mediums. I used the Bold Bunch Mask Stencil( ALTN | SSS ) with iZink Diamond  – Clear Green( JGG ) for the white panel. And then I used the matching stamps from the Bold Bunch Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) for a tone on tone look at the green cardstock.

This is a really pretty stamp set with nice big flowers that really make a statement on a card. I used the Wallpaper Art Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) with the matching stencils and I did some masking as well as quick coloring. Make sure to check the video tutorial!

Finally for my last card I did some offset senciling using the Rennie Roses Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) and the matching stencil. This way I created my very own patterned paper that smells like spring!

  60. Very nice using just the leaf stamp on the thank you card. Would like to use that for a masculine card.

  61. It’s hard to pick a favorite as all four of your cards are amazing. But I just fell in love with the Wallpaper Art card.
