Hello everyone!  Altenew has NEW STENCILS in the shop!! I'm super excited to be part of the BLOG HOP celebration for this release. The full Hop list is at the end of this post.
Take a look at the Geometry & Nature Stencil Release Bundle below. I have created several cards using 5 of the new stencils. Hope you enjoy the inspiration.

First up, is a VIDEO sharing how I made cards featuring the Mighty Corners Stencil and  Leaf Bed Stencil using the Red Cosmos Mixed Media inks. Whach below or on myYouTube channel.

One would argue that the Mighty Corners Stencil is a must have from this release...I've used it in so many of today's cards :)))
The card below is my favorite in this post which happened to be an 'after thought' of salvaged ink from the back of the Mighty Corners Stencil. I share this quick process midway through myVIDEO.  Then I added some spot ink blending over the Leaf Bed Stencil for a cool panel.

Crisp ink collections: Field Greens and Cool Summer Nights

Here is the Mighty Corners Stencil spritzed with various inks sprays and crisp inks for a sweet paring with the Heart Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle.

Crisp inks: Dusk, Turquise, Forest Glades, Parrot
Ink Sprays: Dusk, Pure White, Lagoon

This next card shows how many cool corners can be achieved with the Mighty Corners Stencil!
Crisp inks: Dusk, Turquise, Forest Glades, Parrot
Blending Tool (Large)
Heart Flowers Stamp- sentiment
Next up is the Sphere Stencil:

With an inking of the Sphere Stencil , then a quarter turn and continued inking with Parrot Crisp ink, I achieved almost a 3D illusion. Finished by embellishing with a selectively inked and  Heat embossed bloom from the Castle Motifs Stencil.
Crisp inks: Parrot, Bamboo
Mixed Media Ink: Evergreen

Another fun way to use I used the new Sphere Stencil  is bymoving the stencil all over a cardfront.
Crisp inks: Parrot, Bamboo
Birchland stamp set-sentiment
Using that Bold Greetings Hello Die cut from the card above, as the sentiment for the very mixed media, dry embossed Castle Motifs Stencil.
Crisp inks: Parrot, Bamboo, Freshlemon, Frosty Pink

And for my final card, I createed a Tartan pattern with the Woven Stencil . I think this one will work as a masculine card don't you?

Crisp inks: Dusk, Turquise, Forest Glades, Parrot

 DO you use Stencils in your projects? Creating with stencils has become one of my favorite ways to relax. If you would like to learn how more on how to use stencils, I recently Co-insrtucted a class at Altenew Academy called Stunningly Styled Stencils

Wow. So many great cards. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I think it has to be the woven stencil creative with the stamp layered on the bottom.
