Altenew May 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Laurie Willison blog, 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!

Let’s take a look at my wall calendar:

Illusion Spiral Stencil

Wow, I love this calendar page! I used the Illusion Spiral Stencil for this amazing effect. I was playing around with it and decided to try it on my wall calendar. I’m glad I did.

Decorating this wall calendar page was a breeze. Adhere the stencil where you want the image with purple tape and add color with a blending tool. Nothing to it.

My style is clean and simple so adding only two spirals that looks different allowed me to maintain that style.

To add texture, I add a couple of acetate die cut butterflies, green fields enamel dots and stamped a sentiment from the fancy greeting stamp set.

Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new washi tape and embossing paste.  If you arrived here from the talented Alex Syberia blog, 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!

Let’s take a look at my planner page:

Embossing Paste

I love decorating my planner with card making supplies. Altenew’s new Embossing Paste looks amazing on these pages.

Here’s how I created the two-tone color butterfly:

Embossing Paste

Scoop out a small amount of the embossing paste on a piece of disposable plastic (I used a zip bag, it was on my desk).

Then I added a small amount of color from the Puffy Heart Ink Spray and Sunkissed Metallic Shimmer Ink spray to the embossing paste and mixed it in.

Place the Flowing Butterfly Stencil where you want the image and apply the color paste evenly.

Gently pick up the stencil to see the image.

Embossing Paste

Stamp the sentiment from the Reason to Smile stamp set above and/or below the image.

Embossing Paste

Let’s take another look:

Embossing Paste

I also created a bookmark for my planner as well, using the same method as before.

Here’s a close up. Look at that texture and depth.

Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s January 2019 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new stamps, dies, and stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Rubeena Ianigro blog, 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 4 x 8 scrapbook album:

Mask Stenciling

I returned from Creativation 2019 two days ago and had so much fun seeing all of my crafty friends. It inspired me to create an album dedicated to them.

Here’s how I created this album:

I stenciled a couple of flower stems from Altenew’s Angelique Motifs Mask Stencil with Forest Glades Ink unto a white piece of cardstock.

Then I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Mega Greeting 3 using black ink.

After that I adhered the Simple Friend Die cut right next to the stamped sentiment.

Use We R Memory Keepers Cinch and Rose Gold binding wire to bind the album together.

Friend Die

Super easy and done. Now I can’t wait to fill it with photos.

Here’s another photo using the same stencil:

Altenew Masking Stencil

I facilitated a banner scrapbook make-n-take at Creativation this year at the Altenew booth. It was so cool. Everyone one loved working with the stencils. They saw how easy it was to create a simple but stunning design in under minutes.

Clean and Simple Cards using Heffy Doodle Stamps

Hello everyone!! Kymona here with some clean and simple cards using Heffy Doodle Stamps!

For those of you who do not know or haven’t heard of Heffy Doodle let me give you some history!

Heffy Doodle produces high quality, versatile stamps and dies for the crafting world. Lesley Oman, aka Hungry Heffy is the companies creative and energetic founder. Lesley’s husband Craig tried to convince Lesley to turn her doodles into stamps, but she was way to busy making cards to listen. It was July 2017, when Lesley realized her husband had a great idea and hence Heffy Doodle was born!!!

Take a look at some of the goodies you can find in their online shop:

          

      

 

Let’s take a look at my clean and simple cards:

For the first card, I used the Numicon Stencil to create a very colorful background for a unique birthday card.

Stamping the sentiment from the Big Bold Words Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and then embossing it with Silver Embossing Powder packs a powerful punch.

For the second card, I simple die cut both the Hey and Honey die out of glitter paper and adhered it to the card front.

Super simple and easy.

Both cards turned out beautiful! They didn’t require much work either. They can be reproduce over and over in no time.

I hope you check out the other stamps, dies and goodies from Heffy Doodle. Let me know what you think of these clean and simple cards and the products I shared with you today.

Altenew July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hog

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new Stencil.  If you arrived here from the talented Dana Gong blog, 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 Mini Traveler’s Notebook:

Molded Lines Stencil

Let me introduce to you the Molded Lines Stencil!! I love this stencil because it reminds me of the Continental Airlines who merged with United Airlines in 2012.

My daughter and I are traveling out of the country this month and can’t wait to document our trip. I created a mini traveler’s notebook so that we could document our great adventure each day.

Not only did I decorate the cover but the backside as well.

Molded Lines Stencil

To do that you simple turn the stencil over so that the lines go in the same direction. Super cool!

I added stickers from the Reflection Collection Paper & Sticker Sheet and stamped the sentiment from the Reflection Collection Mini Stamp Set.

Let the vacation begin!!

Mono Prints with a Gel Press Plate

Second Post for Today
If your looking for the Best Blogger Contest 2017 Finalist post, click here.

 

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today sharing my mono prints that I created with a gel press plate!!

I was introduce to Gel Press Plates at Creativation!! I watched Marybeth Shaw, the founder of StencilGirl Products, demonstrate how to use them!! She made me laugh with this quote, “It’s Not Done Yet”, she was referring to her plate that still had paint on it, even after she created a bunch of backgrounds.  I was tickled.  So when I arrived home I had to pick one up.

Now I have 4 different plates and still want more!!  LOL!!

Take a look at what I created today:

I played with February 2017 Mandalas, Circle and Spheres Collection by Maria McGuire stencil along with Vicki Boutin Arylic Paints Set 2.

I love the results that you get when you use the gel press plate and stencils.  You will never get the same print twice.  That is the beauty of this technique.

Check out what I created with this print:

 

I totally love this!! This card turned out perfect!!

I’m entering this card into the Muse Challenge #214. Anita Bowden is the Muse this week, check out her card:

I did not see her card until after I created my prints.  So I was inspired by the press plate, the paints and the stencil.  My card just so happen to fall right in line with Anita’s.  Thats creativity at its best to me.

So what do you think?  Please let me know below!!
