Stretching Your Stencils: Altenew Diamond Builder Stencil

Hi Everyone!

Today I have 3 cards to share. They were all made with one background stencil on a 6″x 6″ piece of Neenah Solar White Classic Crest card stock.

I made these cards back in the fall of 2019 for a stencil class I was going to host but when it got canceled I never got it back on the schedule. 😦

To make this background, start with a 6″x6″ piece of white cardstock and the Altenew Diamond Builder Stencil. I used Ranger Distress inks in colors: Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Festive Berries and Picked Raspberry. I also used blender brushes to apply the inks thru the stencil. To make the pattern follow the guide on the back of the stencil packaging, changing colors each time you turn the stencil. Once your background is done you will need to cut a 4″x5″ panel from your background. You will save the leftover edges to make the 3rd card. Decide where you would like to cut your card on the diagonal and cut. My card was cut 1 7/8″ from left edge and 3 3/4″ from right edge. I backed this colored background with craft foam cut to size. I also added a 1/8″ piece of black cardstock on the diagonal. I mounted the stenciled background onto a 4″x5 1/4″ white cardstock, then mounted that onto a piece of black cardstock
4 1/8″x5 3/8″.

To make the sentiment, use Altenew Fancy Hello Die and cut out of black card stock 3x. Glue the 3 layers together. White heat emboss the “Stay Awesome My Friend” sentiment from Altenew Leaf Canopy Stamp Set, on black cardstock. Adhere the sentiment with liquid glue and the sentiment strip using foam tape. Adhere card front to a card base 4 1/4×5 1/2″.

Supplies: Altenew Fancy Hello Die, Altenew Leaf Canopy Stamp (sentiment), Altenew Diamond Builder Stencil, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Versamark ink, Black card stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110 card stock, Ranger Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Fresh Picked Studios Blender Brushes.

To make this card you will use the bottom background piece from the card made in the first photo (see directions). You will also need a piece of black cardstock cut to 4 1/4″x5 1/2″, a 4 1/8″x5 3/8″ piece of white cardstock and a 4 1/4″x5 1/2″ white card base. Measure down about 1.25″ on the left side (about 3 1/8″ on right side) of your piece of white card stock for placement of your background stenciled cardstock. Before glueing it down, decide where you will stamp your sentiments and stamp and heat emboss both sentiments. Once you have done that, glue down your stenciled piece and decorate the edges using 1/8″ pieces of black cardstock. Glue or use double sided tape to adhere to black cardstock background and then adhere to card base.

Other Supplies: Altenew Everything About You Stamp, Altenew Obsidian Black pigment ink, Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.

To make this card, use your leftover scraps from the previous two cards, there should be about 1/2″ strips left. Make a card front 4 1/8″x5 3/8″ and splatter it with the distress inks used to make the background. Adhere the stenciled background strips to the right and left side of card front. Cut your sentiment from black cardstock. Using a ruler to keep your lines straight, line up your letters and glue in place. Adhere your card front to a 4 1/4×5 1/2″ card base.

Other Supplies: Altenew Fine Alphabet Die, paint brush for splatters.

Welcome and Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. To give you a little background about myself, I am a Christian, have been married for 33 years to my wonderful husband and I have two beautiful, adult, married daughters who are dear to me. I love to craft and find it relaxing, challenging, and a way to express a deep desire to create and make things with my hands. In the past my greatest joys in creating came from cross-stitching and sewing (I was a design major in college). But now I find it in paper-crafting, more specifically in card making. My other passions are bike riding, weight training, chocolate, and ice cream.
