Altenew Lemon Craze Stencil Set

Card One: Sparkling Lemon Craze

For my first card, I reached for the Lemon Craze Stencil Set, which includes three versatile stencils. I started by dry embossing the lemon images onto the cardstock, creating a subtle and sophisticated texture. Next, I indulged in some ink blending, using vibrant Mid Yellow Fresh Dye Ink to evoke the zesty essence of lemons. To add a touch of sparkle, I placed the first stencil back over the lemons and sprayed some dazzling glitter spray. The result was a card that radiates with the freshness of lemonade on a sunny day.

Altenew Zesty Life Stamp Set

Card Two: Zesty Life’s Embossed Delight

With the Zesty Life Stamp Set and Zesty Life Simple Coloring Stencils, I created a card that captures the essence of lemon branches in full bloom. I stamped two lovely lemon branches and then turned to the stencils to add color to the lemons. After ink blending the lemons to perfection, I placed the first stencil back over the lemons and applied embossing ink. With a sprinkle of clear embossing powder and a burst of heat, the lemons gleamed with a delightful embossed shine. A patterned paper from the Cute Fruits 6×6 Paper Pack served as the perfect background, adding a touch of sweetness to the card.

Altenew Citrus Fruits Pattern Layering Stencil Set

Card Three: Citrus Fruits Symphony

For my third card, I turned to the versatile Citrus Fruits Pattern Layering Stencil Set, featuring four fantastic stencils. I embarked on a colorful journey, using spray stains to bring life to the leaves and oranges. Using spray stains through a stencil gives you a fun spray pattern inside the images. Next, I added ink blended details to the oranges and lemons using the third stencil layer. But the fun didn’t end there! To add a delightful touch of sparkle, I applied glitter paste through the fourth stencil layer, transforming the citrus fruits into a dazzling symphony of colors and shine.


A great way to add details to your cards is by using the last layer of a layering stencil set to add a different medium to your card. You can use texture paste, glitter gel, paint — there are so many options!
