Altenew July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop

Altenew Hop, Shari Carroll

Welcome everyone to the Altenew July stencil release blog hop!! If you’re coming from Crystals Thompson’s blog, then you’re in the right place.

I’ve created two cards using the City Scene and Elegant Swirls stencils with the same selection of Distress inks but different techniques. My first card uses the City Scene stencil where I’ve used a blending tool to create layers of colorful buildings. This card reminds me of a college student moving to the city for school or career.

I was sure to use colors that blend well together with each layer. I started at the bottom of my cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade, then Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, and finally Mowed Lawn. I continued up the card with the same order of colors until I got to the top. I finished the card by using the Simon Says Stamp Miss You die and a stamped greeting.

My next card uses the Elegant Swirl stencil where I’ve tapped the ink pads directly onto the stencil, spritzed it with water and pressed my paper onto the ink stencil. This gives me a colorful image of the stencil. I finished the card off by using the Simon Says Stamp two part Friend die and mounted it to a black card.

I filmed a video or how I made the City Scene stenciled card, you can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

  1. Gorgeous cards. I especially love the city scene stencil card with the rainbow effect. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. These hops are so inspiring.
    I’d seen the cityscapes but
    didn’t think it would be very
    versatile. Love all of the
    colors that blended together
    to make a beautiful background.
    Have to add this one to my
    list of “must get”
    thanks for sharing

  3. Both your cards are beautiful – I really love the way you’ve used the City stencil to build the background.

  4. I love the beautiful colors in your cards! The city scene looks so cool the way you built it up. That card just makes me happy! What a great way to end the hop!

  5. I love both of these cards and the beautiful colors that you chose. What a cool technique you used with the Elegant Swirls stencil! I love learning new things!

  6. I love your colorful city using city scape stencil!!. How could you not smile seeing!!.

  7. Wow Shari! These cards are amazing! Love all the new stencils because they’re sooooo versatile :) Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!

  8. So inspirational! I love these colors and would like to create something similar, but I had a work to do for my literature class. One of my friends recommended to check useful resources such as if I want to obtain inspiration. This is actually why I found this blog. It is always much simpler to create something unique if you have an example.

  9. Starting to play at an online casino can be an exciting endeavor, but it can also be overwhelming for newcomers. With the vast array of options available and the potential risks involved, many people turn to guides for assistance. The question that arises, however, is whether these guides are genuinely helpful or merely useless sources of information. Let’s delve into the matter.

    For some individuals, guides on how to start playing at an online casino prove to be incredibly beneficial. These resources often provide valuable insights into the various aspects of online gambling, including game selection, payment methods, and even strategies for maximizing one’s chances of winning. Novice players can benefit from learning about the different types of games, their rules, and the platforms that offer them. Furthermore, guides frequently offer advice on setting realistic expectations, managing one’s bankroll, and understanding responsible gambling practices.

    On the other hand, there are critics who argue that these guides are nothing more than marketing tools employed by online casinos to lure in unsuspecting players. Skeptics claim that the information provided is biased, emphasizing the positives while downplaying the potential pitfalls of online gambling. They argue that these guides often neglect to mention the risks associated with addictive behavior, financial losses, or the importance of self-control.
