YouTube Tutorial | Stencil and Die Techniques
All the details to create 6 cards with stencil and die techniques are in this video. Watch here or in HD on YouTube.
Altenew Full Release
Here’s a peek at the full Altenew February 2020 stencil, decal, and stand-alone die release. Click the image for more details.
This card didn’t turn out as I expected and is my favorite of the bunch. I used a mix of ink blending and alcohol ink markers.
I used Tranquil Wings Stencil, Dotted Starburst Debossing Cover Die, and Bold Greetings Dies. Rose Petal Altenew Artist Markers created a perfect gradient effect on the Bold Greetings sentiment die.
Open Blooms 3D Die Set
I’m still enchanted with the Altenew Artists’ Watercolor set and used Shades of Purple and Crystal Waters to create the paper for this lovely Open Blooms flower.
I paired Open Blooms 3D Die set with the Bold Greetings Die Set and the Fine Frames Square Die Set. While I adhered the Open Bloom layers with glue, you can add more dimension with foam squares.
Fine Frames Diamond Die Set
The Fine Frames Diamond and Square Die Sets are perfect for focal points, layering, and framing elements. Here they take center stage.
I used the positive frame cut from black cardstock and the negative center cut from sunflower cardstock to create a focal point. Bold Greetings modern font, goes well with all styles of cards.
Fancy For You Die
Altenew Artists’ Watercolor provides the perfect backdrop for the Fancy For You Die.
Fine Frames Square Die helps to draw your eye to the sentiment amid the watercolor background.
Hand-Drawn Tile Stencil
Check it out, Altenew Mega Alphabet Dies fit snugly in the center of the Hand-Drawn Tile Stencil.
Here I ink blended with Sunray, Coral Bliss, Coral Berry, Dew Drops, and Silver Lake Crisp Dye Inks.
Bursting Dahlia Stencil
The name says it all, this dahlia is a huge open bloom perfect for a focal point or layered background images.
No masking is needed for these layered dahlia images. I’ve paired it with a stacked Bold Greetings Die.
