You should have come from Keren Baker. If you would like more info about this release visit Altenew.

I have made 4 projects for todays release.

I love these new Playful Pattern Stencils. I used 3 of the 4 stencils for the background of this card.

I started with the leaf stencil and used Altenew Blending Brushes to blend with Sweet Leaf and Just Green Crisp Dye Inks.

I then took the flower layer and used Rouge and Velvet Crisp Dye Inks to make the flowers.

Then I took the dotted layer to create the flower centers and the random dots around the panel with Desert Night Crisp Dye Ink. While I had the flower center stencil in place, I used some Decofoil transfer gel and spread that in the dots and added some glitter on top, then washed the stencil.

I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Bold Bunch Stamp Set with Altenew Permanent Black Ink onto a piece of white cardstock.

Then used a leaf die from Altenew Craft-A-Flower Buttercup Die set and cut a stencil from another piece of cardstock and blended Sweet Leaf and Just Green inks onto  the end of the sentiment strip and used the die again to cut it out. 

I used the flower and dot stencils to make a flower next to the sentiment in the same manner as for the panel and cut it out.

I rubbed the edges of the sentiment strip into the Velvet Ink and blended it a bit.

I adhered the panel to red card base and then adhered the sentiment and leaf to the panel.

For the second card, I stamped the small flower from the Altenew Adore You Add-On Stamp Set over a white cardstock panel with Altenew Permanent Black Ink.

On a different piece of cardstock I stamped the large flower and several leaves.

I've used Altenew Artist Markers to color in the flowers on the panel and the leaves on the other with colors R601 Rose Quartz, R502 Pink Diamond, R504 Pinkalicious, R616 Razzleberry, C003 Rubellite, G425 Shadow Creek, G446 Mountain Pine, G 503 Firefly, G515 Grass Field, C004 Citrus Burst, and S Jet Black.

For the large flower I used a Wink of Stella glitter pen.

I used the Adore You Add-On Dies to cut out the larger flower and leaves.

The I Really Miss You Stamp and Die Bundle were used to stamp and cut the sentiment out of black and pink cardstock.

I adhered the panel to a pink card base, then adhered the flower and leaves to the card.

For my third card I stamped the outline of the television all over a white panel from Altenew Vintage Vibes Stamp set with  Limestone Crisp Dye Ink, then rubbed it along the edges as well.

I double-stamped another television with the legs onto another white panel with Silver Lake and Sand Dunes Inks.

I Stamped the detail layer of the television with Gray Denim Ink. 

Then the inside of the television with Cloudy Night Ink. I went back and added some detailing to the television with Altenew's Fine Liner Pen Set. Then Cut it out with The Vintage Vibes Die Set.

I added a layer of Glossy Accents to the inside of the television and set it aside to let it dry while I cut out the "Happy Birthday" from black cardstock with the Just A Number Die Set three times and glued them together with some liquid adhesive.

I adhered the panel to a khaki card base and the adhered the television and the sentiment to the top.

And finally, I stamped a secondary sentiment inside the card from the set.

For my fourth and final card I have used the Delightful Frame 3D Embossing folder.

I used the appropriate layers for 3D embossing for the die cutting machine, and ran the folder through it, with a piece of tan cardstock.

I used the Wink Of Stella Glitter pen and added it all over the raised portion of the panel.

Then I used the smallest pen from the Fine Liner Pen Set to add details over the flowers.

I stamped a sentiment from the Bouquet Of Love Stamp Set with Permanent Black Ink in the center of the panel.

I adhered the panel to a piece of black cardstock, then to another tan card base.

I love the simplicity of this last card.
