Altenew Educators “Style it with Stencils” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Hello everyone..

Home schooling will start soon (next week) . And I am looking forward to have more time and breaks from my kids and do more crafting.. Till this moments I sneaked some time to create these cards and projects..

I was honored to be a part of this Altenew Educators “Style it with Stencils” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

You must came from the talanted Nandini Karmarkar blog.. I am sure this hop will have a new ideas.. Stencil is one of easiest and prett

Playing with Stencils its so much fun and we have unlimited choices.. For today I made some of my stencils to make some crafts and I used some of old altenew stencil.. I didn’t have any if the new line… They are amazing and irresistible And I will have them soon.

I will start my post with this 2 card. In both of them I used embossing past to create a dimension over a black card stock using Altenew elegant swiral stencil

For the first one I colored the past with blue and purple before applying it..

Then I tried to apply a blend between the two color in the contact point.. Then I high lighted them with Altenew 36 watercolor pan..

For the second card I applied the white embossing past then I colored over it with Altenew watercolor pan..

The sentence from……… I heat embossed it with white embossing powder then colored it with rainbow to match the back ground.


For my 2nd creation.. I made a mixed media card using handmade stencil and a ready made stencil..

First I applied a purples shades in white background using handmade one from Altenew dodec-cover-die

Then I used cube builder To have some Dimond shaped on the two edges using embossing past..

Then die cut the two square die cut with black.. Coloring these flowers from Altenew golden garden

Adding more dimensions with black and deep purple with Stencil that I made from Altenew dodec-cover-die and add more extra dimensions with cutting these small dodec around the square..

The sentence make it happen from altnew happy dream stamp

**************, *****

For these 3rd patch of cards..

I tried to use different items to replace embossing past over Altenew mega rose stencil Stencil

In these 3 cards First I applied a powder color on a little wet watercolor paper and more water to blend the color on the back..

In fist one i used gray ink for the back ground to define the rose over the background then applied a transpart styling matte and some silver powder before its dry.

This sentence is from Altenew cross stitch flower stamp.

For the second and the 3rd card I used cracked to give the rose a dimension.. But I didn’t like it.

For this one I went over it with the stencil and Die dut machine with a little shift from the area I applied the past.. It gives it a more petals..

For the other one I went over the stencil with the die cut machine in the same are of the past..


For the 4th set of my creation..

I styled my stencile and I die cut my own sentences on a paper to create the stencil then I applied acrylic color in a different material, paper, plastick cloth table and hand made background using Altenew mega rose stencil.

I was still trying to fit them on frames

These poster or pictures frame I made it with my dear doughter to put her in here room to encourage her to the positive thinking..

How elegant painting on wood with rainbow color

I used Altenew fine alphabetic die and Altenew Classic Alphabet Die Set

Painting on marble is so preety.. Thus is my doughter choice

Of course this my DD favorite, feminine and up lifting

I used another one with a single m letter from Altenew Classic Alphabet Die Set on a glass container and add the m using black acrylic paint.. For the leaves it’s stence from one of the leaves in

After finishing all these projects and these many idea..
