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.

We are the last stop of the hop and hope you’ve enjoyed all the inspiration along your way today. If you’ve missed any stops, I’ve include a complete list of of the blogs below.

  1. I love the city stenciling in the pastel colors and the overlapping is really pretty! I think both of your cards are really beautiful!

  2. Loved your stencils! You chose two of my favorites of the new release. I am anxious to try your last technique.

  3. 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!

  4. Love both these colorful cards. You’ve definitely provided inspiration. I definitely want to try both these techniques.

  5. Love the combination of colors and layers! Beautiful cards and this is a great line up of stencils.

  6. This was an amazing blog hop filled with inspiration. It was topped off with Shari’s beautiful card creations. I do love that city scene stencil and the colors Shari used for both cards were just awesome! Thanks!

  7. Beautiful mix of colors with these stencils! I especially like the cityscape card – just gorgeous!

  8. Both cards are so pretty. I love the City Scene stencil. I really like how you layered it with those beautiful colors.

  9. Shari, I love how you used watercolor to the cityscape stencil. It makes the cityscape stand out on the card.

  10. Love the cityscape stencil. This card is lovely, the use of watercolor is so nice. I’m a country girl but I have to admit, I would make this card. :)

  11. Both cards are great Shari but I have to say I would NOT have thought to use the city scene stencil in this way however, I love it!
