Altenew Classic Imagery Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi! Hope you are enjoying this great blog hop! You must have arrived here from Seeka. I always love her elegant designs! 

The new Classic Imagery Collection is really great with lots of different designs. There is something for everyone. You can check out the whole collection here.


Card #1:

For my first card, I decided to use the Terrazzo Tile stencil is great for masculine cards. It mimics the beautiful Terrazo tiles that contain small chips of marble, granite, etc.

I started with a cream panel and used three different embossing powders with each of the three stencils.

Once the heat embossing was done, I decided that the panel needed some more texture. So I ran it through the new Bunch of Balloons 3D embossing folder.

Here is a close-up.

After trimming the panel, I glued it to a top folding kraft card base.

The sentiment is from the Birthday Greetings stamp set.


Card #2:

One of my favorite stencil techniques is offset inking. This works especially well with stencils like the Lacy Tiles stencil which has a small repeating pattern.

After attaching the stencil to a white card base, I inked with Parrot and Moss inks for an ombre look. Next, I cleaned the stencil and offset it. Then I used Ocean Waves and Desert Night for the inking.

The sentiment is from the new Carpe Diem stamp set. I stamped it on a scrap of white paper with Desert Night and Moss inks. I also cut a larger mat out of the same white paper and ran it through the Deck Planks 3D embossing folder.

To finish, I rounded the bottom corners of the card.


Card #3:

I made a card set as my third project. In the current situation, it is important to let people know that they are in your thoughts. So I made a set of 'Thinking of You' cards.

I chose dark brown card bases as I wanted to make unisex cards. I ran the bases through the Deck Planks 3D embossing folder for a nice texture.

I used three of the stencils from the Quilt Blocks stencils set. I used different double complementary color schemes for each card.

Quilt Block #2:

Quilt Block #3:

Once my stenciling was done, I trimmed the panels and added them over the sentiment panels. The sentiment is from the Leaf Canopy stamp set.

Here are the three cards together.

I hope you liked my cards. I would love to hear which is your favorite card and your favorite product today! Here are all the products I used from the new Classic Imagery Collection release. Click on the image to head to the Altenew store.
