Altenew Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited to be here today.  This is my first Altenew Blog Hop as a design team member!!  Today we are showcasing all of the new stencils that are being released.  If you’ve arrived here from fabulous Lydia Evans, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my layout:

For my layout I used Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope B Stencil  paired with some of the supplies from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit and some Ink Sprays to add interest to my page.

I used the Layered Kaleidoscope B stencil to add texture behind my photo using embossing paste. I took my time to only get the embossing past in the center design of the stencil only.

Note: for those of you who are new to this technique, I would suggest you mask of the areas that you do not want the past to go as to not make a mistake.

I did this twice so that the design would peak out from behind the photo.

Note: you could color the embossing paste using Altenew’s inks and/or sprays to really enhance the texture.  Like this:

I choose not to use it the color paste because it was to much yellow on the page but know that this is an option as well.

Let’s take a closer look:

For this page, I matted the photo on top of a piece of pattern paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit. Then I used the stickers and other embellishments from the kit to add the title and cute saying to the layout.  To finish the layout off, I used Altenew Ink Spray and a paintbrush to add ink splatters throughout the page.

So what do you think?  Will you use stencils on your layouts now?  I would love to hear what you think below!

What is a blog hop without an amazing gift? Yayyy!!

  3. Awesome layout and a fabulous use of this stencil. Love the colors and the photo that looks like you were on a fantastic vacation.
    Thank you for sharing.

  4. Kymona, I am so happy to see you here scrapbooking, too?! OH! is there no end to your talent? LOve the layout – and that gorgeous splattered base! I haven’t treated myself to the sprays: YET!
    =]
    p.s. I can’t promise Palm Trees, but I’d share my beach with you anytime!

  5. What a great layout! Adore how you used part of the stencil as accents and dimension to your page – thanks so much for sharing!

  6. Oh my…I am always looking for stencil inspiration and this does it! I don’t do a lot of scrapbooking (really none), but this still inspires me for my cardmaking!

  7. Great inspiration, i am yet to try any embossing paste with stencils as there are so many different types to buy.

  8. Love your use of the embossing paste. That is what I want to do with my card making. I am just getting into stencils and have ordered some embossing paste. Love your ideas. Thanks!
