What a SUPER FUN release at Altenew today!! The Altenew Classic Imagery Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway is filled with 3D Embossing Folders and Stencils; two of my newset obsessions in the craft room.

Classic Imagery Full Release Bundle 

Here is a closer look at the 3D Folders:

And below is a close-up of all the new STENCILS:
Classic Imagery Stand-alone
Stencil Release Bundle 

Have a look at what I created starting with the Embossing Folders: I always use the 110lb CS for the Embossing Folders for the BEST results. Giving the paper a spritz of clean H2o before placing it inside the folder for less tearing. 

 For the Charming Mandala 3D Embossing Folder, I colored the raised elements with Artist Markers and then cut the panel into 4 equal squares..... rotated each one, by a quarter turn, and mounted them onto a square card base for a patchwork quilt look :)


I started out with blue cardstock and the Daisy Bed 3D Embossing Folder, add some flicks of darker blue color with the Artist Markers. Next I took the sanding block and carefully sanded higher tips of the petal elements for a pop of white. Then I carefully colored in the background with black marker for drama! I trimmed the panel down, popped it on a card base and then saved the remaining colored piece to create a bookmark!

This Spring Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder  coordinates with the Simply Spring Stamp Set which I watercolored in my previous VIDEO. I adore how there are so many different versions of an image in the Altenew shop! ie. stamps, stencils dies and folders.
Spring Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder

After running the embossing folder with white CS through my machine. I quickly colored the petals with Artist Markers, then I went back and hit the RAISED side of the folder with black ink, which defined the FAUX LETTER PRESS impressions. And finally added a bit of translucent EP on the insides of the petals, and heat set. Finished with a bit of Pure White Spray for a bit of Splatter on the black background. 


Now let's move on to a few of the new STENCILS:

Fine Tulle Stencil 
Went all mixed media for this card using the Lacy Tile Stencil with my impression plate for a textured top panel and added a kiss of Golden Peach EP for more texture and shimmer! Ripped a corner off and matted it on a second panel featuring the Fine Tulle Stencil .

Illusion Twist Stencil

Terrazzo Tile Stencil Set (3 in 1)

Layering Guide for Terrazzo Tile Stencil Set (3 in 1) below

Super fun layering all three of the Terrazzo Tile Stencil Set! adding the colors of my choice with the blending tools, and a few splatters on one layer. Trimmed the panel down and  matted it with  the Illusion Twist Stencil. Then added the 'Happy Birthday'. I think this is an excellent way to create a masculine card.
