Hello, Altenew fans. What better way to keep our mind busy than to craft. I am always drawn towards to stamps and dies and I sometimes forget about my stash of Altenew Stencils. I should really use them more often as they are such fun. Today I'll be sharing three projects I created with three stencils from our April 2020 release.

Project 1:

My first project is a layout. I wanted it to be simple. I used the Mega Bloom Stencil and added some strips of washi tape. I created custom embellishments with the Vibrant Spray Die Cut tape. I cut out sections of flowers to create my clusters.

I also used some of the new sequins to add a hint of sparkle. For my title, I used the word HELLO which was die cut from black paper and on to which I blended some Antique Gold Permanent Ink. I also got out my Label Love French stamp set to stamp a sentiment.

I really enjoyed creating this layout and although it is simple it still has a lot of detail.

You can see how I created the layout in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.

Project 2:

My next project is a card. It is so easy to whip up a quick card with this Floral Wallpaper Stencil. I blended in one colour making sure to darker it at the bottom. I used a large sentiment from the Watercolor Roses Stamp Set and added a strip of washi tape and three sequins.

Now I have another card to add to my box of cards.

Project 3:

My last project is also a card with a hand-drawn element. I loved the Mixed Sprinkles Stamp and immediately thought of a cupcake.

First I blended three colours onto my white cardstock using the Mixed Sprinkles Stencils. I moved the stencil in different directions so that some of the sprinkles would overlap.

Then I looked up how to draw a cupcake on the internet and drew one on some white cardstock. I coloured it in using my Artist Markers and cut it out by hand. Once I had my cupcake I popped it on to the layout and used the Label Love French Stamp to add a birthday sentiment. This is my favourite project. It makes me so happy.

Great look at stencil use. Nice video on the process. I like the tip for turning and blending over the sprinkles.
