Altenew Online Workshop: Celebration Stencil Techniques

Learn fun and easy stencil techniques!

I love layering stencils. Using multiple stencils can give a card a little something extra special. But did you know you can use your dies to create stencils? It’s true! And as a bonus, you get a two-for-one card! I decided to play around with my cover plate dies while doing my homework for the Altenew Online Workshop Celebration: Stencil Techniques and I am absolutely thrilled with the result.


First, I die cut the Layered Geo Cover Die A. I used repositionable adhesive spray to secure the die cut to an A2 sized card panel. Then I blended pink, yellow, and teal ink on the diagonal to create a modified rainbow. I blended just over a third of the way for each color so that the pink and yellow overlapped to create orange, and the yellow and teal overlapped to create green.

I removed my die cut and repeated the same process with the Layered Geo Cover Die B. I set aside the inner circle to use for later.

Next, I used the Mini Delight: Cupcake layering stamps to create two cute little cupcakes. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

To create my sentiment, I used the Best Sentiments stamps. I love these stamps because they look like mini labels and are very easy to cut down using your paper trimmer or scissors.

Next, I adhered the ink blended card panel to an A2 card base using liquid adhesive. Then I adhered the inner circle from my Layered Geo Cover Die B die cut in the center of the card with adhesive foam. I also adhered my cupcake and sentiment using adhesive foam.

Lastly, I added iridescent bubble embellishments to add a bit of bling!

To create my bonus card, I first glued a small piece of silver glitter paper to the back of the Layered Geo Cover Die A die cut. Then I glued both the A and B die cuts to an A2 card base. I flipped the B die cut 180 degrees before gluing it down.

I finished the card by adhering my cupcake and sentiment using adhesive foam. I love dimension!


Use repositionable adhesive spray for finely detailed stencils. The spray keeps all of the little parts where they are supposed to be!
