Altenew February 2020 Stencil/Decals/Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

It's release time again and I have projects to share with you using new Altenew stencils. You should have landed here from Erum Tasneem's Blog and if not please go back to see her fabulous inspiration.
You can also go back and start the blog hop with from the beginning, 
Altenew Card Blog.

You can also see the entire release here

My first card features the Wild Leopard stencil.


Using Altenew Crisp Dye Ink, Pale Mauve, Grape Agate and Amethyst I colorized the background.  The Mod Vases were also stamped using those ink colors along with Jet Black at the bottom.  I used the matching dies for the vases and cut the gold paper for the top of the vase.  
I wanted to have some palm leaves sticking out of the vases and I needed to add color to the vellum so Altenew Pumpkin Pie Crisp Dye ink was added to paper before I cut the palms.  I used the Altenew Parlor Palm Die Set.



My second card features Geometric Roulette Stencil


There are so many things you can do with this stencil but I wanted to keep this card simple to make the stencil pattern a focal point.
Inks used for stencil are Altenew Crisp Dye inks, Fire Fly, Dew Drop and Aqualicious.  I colored the image from Altenew Stained Glass Window Set with my Altenew Artist Markers.  The sentiment is included in the Stained Glass Window set.  The finishing touch is fun Altenew Enamel Dots.


My third card uses two of the new stencils.


The first thing I did was use Orange Cream Altenew Crisp Dye ink along with the Wild Leopard Stencil to create a background.  Now I layered the Dahlia image over this panel using Altenew Embossing Paste that was colorized using Ruby Red Altenew Crisp Dye ink.  
My sentiment came from the Altenew Hello & Hugs Stamp and die set.
Strawberry Mix Lucy's Gems were added for details.



My last card features Altenew On Point Stencil.


First I ran my stencil through a die-cut machine to add the embossing relief effect.  Using Altenew Crisp Dye ink in Aqualicious, Galatic Stream, and Grapevine I colorized the panel.  Altenew Geo Frames die set was used to cut 2 pieces for the card front. I also used Espresso Altenew Crisp die ink on the edges of the 2 die-cuts.
Wanting to create a more masculine card I selected paper from the Altenew Celestrial paper pack.
The sentiment came from Altenew Fancy Greetings, it was stamped with Altenew Embossing ink and then covered with Altenew White Embossing Powder.
Enamel Dots were used from the Rock Collection.

  6. The leopard stencil is so subtle on the first card that it looked like splotchy dots to me at first - I love how it doesn't have to look so leopard-y if you use a muted color! I also like how you used embossing paste on the bursting dahlia stencil. Thanks for sharing!

  24. Your cards are wonderful! The vases are gorgeous. That second card is so pretty with the stencil behind your image. I love your last card. It's my favorite. The color combo speaks to me along with the bit of bling. The stencil reminds me of arrows and your card gives off a native American vibe for me.

  42. Wonderful examples of the tools you used, including texturing! I really like the first card with the vases and palms - very clean and tasteful! I think my favorite, though, is the last card saying that one can do anything as long as we are on point! It's another excellent use of the On Point stencil, which I'd never thought of using. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing!
