Simon Says: Use a Stencil!

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Use a Stencil! The design team is featuring always beautiful Altenew products! It isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

When you think Altenew, you think flowers and considering we are now mid-January a pretty mix of pink and coral is needed! I always love a partial stencil when using a flower so forgive me if I am CASE-ing myself but this is one of my favourite mixes and I do tend to use Altenew flowers for this type of card.

If you follow me, you know that I love to color! So, I don't often use layered stamps, but this Hope bloom by Altenew is one of my favorites for both design and scale. I just love this one so much, so I felt it was perfect for this week's challenge.

This card was simple enough to put together, I started by stamping my flowers and leaves using my Misti - of course with some Altenew cube ink (listed below). I die cut the images and set them aside.

I took my Altenew Halftone Stencil (I love a good polka dot) and blended some Abandoned Coral Distress Ink on my Neena Solar White panel.  I die cut it using my Mama Elephant Cloud Nine Background die. I  used foam tape for the main flower and glued the remaining elements flat to the card.

I used the French Altenew Labels (I am half French Canadian and I often need French cards) and used foam tape for that as well. To finish off, I used some iridescent sequins by Little Things by Lucy!
