CARD DETAILS

I was very excited to try new layering stencils. There are a lot of things one can do using a stencil, lots of techniques and having a layering set of stencils certainly adds a lot to all the fun! I made several cards to test out various mediums, approaches and simply to play!

My first project, Gold Hello features Layered Medallion A Stencil and Tonic Golden Crystal Nuvo Glimmer Paste. I used Altenew’s Spicy Yogurt cardstock (I decided not to use any white today, only sentiment strips were stamped on white) and added a generous amount of paste. I love the glittery shimmery look I was able to get.

My second project, Teal Friend features Layered Medallion B Stencil and Tonic Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste. To create the background I first did some ink blending using a stencil and Altenew inks. I blended Ocean Waves and darkened the edges of my panel using Emerald. Next I added a generous amount of white translucent glimmer paste, but I only added it to some sections, I did not cover the entire background. This created a lot of interest and added tons of detail to my card.

My third project, Pink Hello was created using both A and B stencils and Tonic Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste. This time I used A stencil and blended ink onto my background. I used Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy and Coral Berry. Next I switched to a B stencil and applies a generous solid layer of Moonstone paste. Because this paste is somewhat translucent you can see the ink blended background underneath it. Love this look!

To create sentiments I used Super Script and Halftone Circles.

    1. Wow! These look So Rich with the depth of texture. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. I love your cards. I love how you added an extra layer of texture. Stunning 🙂

    1. These cards are gorgeous!! Love the way you used the paste for shimmer and dimension with the stencils – I’m loving these layerable stencils from Altenew and you’re inspiring me to use my Nuvo paste more often!

    1. I would never have thought about layering the stencils for such amazing results. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Lovely cards! I am loving my Altenew stamps and the new release!

    1. You used something no one else did, the Glimmer Paste, something i had never heard of before tonight. I went to the Simon Says site and saw that you can use it on fabric, which I love! I also stamp on fabric and something that you can use on fabric and paper is a win/win in my book! I don’t need to buy 2 different things to use on both. I love how that Glimmer Paste looks on your cards! They make your background look so sparkly and pretty and I really love that! I know just what I want when I win and if I don’t win, I am buying some anyway even though I shouldn’t. Great job, Yana! I’ll bet you had fun playing with everything and I can’t wait until I can play too.
