Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. Have you noticed there's a brand new Altenew Monthly Subscription yet? Altenew Dynamic Duo Treat Yourself is the latest addition. This Dynamic Duo Set contains the following exclusive products: 3″ x 4″ stamp set containing 21 stamps and a coordinating and complementing stencil set containing 2 stencils.
Here are my three takes with this set and you will see why this subscription plan offers good value and wonderful possibilities for creativity.
With the help of Stampwheel, you can now easily stencil a large image without using any adhesive or tape. Simply position Center Alignment Guide around the Stamp Wheel and stencil away.
Pro Tip: Stencil a floral border.
I stenciled the sentiment first and then created a stenciled floral border. The Trailblazing Fresh Dye Ink Bundle gives this design some gorgeous pops of colors and contrast. I followed the guide on the stamp set and filled out the alphabet for A, P, B, R, D, and A. The next card utilizes the balloon images from the stencil. What's a birthday party without balloons, right?
If you can't decide on the color combo, just choose one of the ink sets like Rainbow Prism. You will instantly come up with an amazing color palette.
Pro tip: Add that Gradient Effect with various ink.
Starting from the center balloons, I gradually stenciled the balloons around the cardstock. The Mini Blending Brush Set is ideal for coloring these balloon images.
As for the balloon strings? The Fine Liner Pen Set makes the hand-drawn lines an easy task. It is also a good idea to mix up the stencil and stamp set sentiment like I did here.
Adding mixed colors ( Satin white and Satin Gold) sequins really elevated this fun and festive birthday card.
Pro Tip: Stamp and stencil your own images.
These stamp and stencil sets are not limited to certain sizes. You can totally create your own floral images like I did here. I love fussy cutting and didn't find cutting out these flowers difficult at all.
With the Navy Cardstock, the Vertical Greeting Die Set fits beautifully with the flowers (stamped with Ballet Slippers Crisp Dye Ink).
Lastly, don't forget to embellish it with the Must-Have Gel Pen Set and Satin white Sequins.
For a stencil and stamp set, this Dynamic Duo Treat Yourself is sure to impress. You will be amazed at how many projects you can come up with simply mixing and matching images. I know I was pleasantly surprised! Thanks for stopping by!
