Altenew January Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway


Hello everyone!!!
Welcome to Altenew January Release Blog Hop II!
We are releasing 18 stamp sets, 18 die sets, and 12 inks!

You are here from the talented Eunyoung Lee's place.
If you just happen to stop by please start at the beginning from the Altenew blog.
You can also find the complete hop list at the end of this post.

I made four cards to share with you!
The first two cards feature the Smile More stamp set.


@Altenew Smile More stamp set pencil colored (faber castell classic) by @pr0digy0
I watercoloured the background using distress stains and pencil coloured the flowers using Faber Castell classic pencils.
My card was severely lacking some bling so I added the smallest size sequins I could find as flower centers. Closeup photo below where you can see the colouring detail, a bit of masking I did and the sparkly sequins.

For my second card I went with a more messy, grungy watercolour style.
I am a little bummed that the photo didn't come out right.
I heat embossed my flowers in gold using Ranger Superfine Embossing Powder.
I watercoloured the flowers and leaves using Gansai Tambi watercolours and then fussy cut them.
There is a coordinating die for this stamp set too, I didn't have one but you can get from the store here.

I added a bit of gold watercolour to this blue green combination.
I love the two tone watercolouring, you will be seeing more of that in my next post.
It looks super messy but oh-so-gorgeous in person!
Even the background (that looks brown in photo) is gold!

And my final set of cards using the Basic Borders stamp set and the gorgeous silver glitter tape.



@Altenew Superscript and Basic Borders stamp set water colored (Distress Stain) by @pr0digy0

Instead of pulling out a single stamp to make my border, I chose to use the whole stamp set as a background stamp!
Doesn't it look cool?!
I couldn't decide if I wanted to keep the one with white heat embossing or one with black ink so here I am sharing both versions.
I used the  silver glitter tape to make my mat for the watercoloured panels.
These tapes are beautiful and the glitter doesn't come off (there is one in gold too!).
You should definitely get your hands on them.

@Altenew Superscript and Basic Borders stamp set water colored (Distress Stain) by @pr0digy0
For the above card I used "hello" from the Super Script Stamp set and white heat embossed the Basic Borders stamp on watercolour paper.
I watercoloured the background using distress stains.


@Altenew Superscript and Basic Borders stamp set water colored (Distress Stain) by @pr0digy0
For my card above I used Archival ink in Jet Black to stamp my "background" and watercoloured the piece with distress stains.
The word "Friend" is from the Super Script Stamp set, which I heat embossed on black cardstock.

That is all from my side today!
Now on to the good stuff!

Love how your daisies pop, Erum!! So, so pretty =)

Karen Gerek said...

I enjoyed all three of your designs; they are gorgeous. Any chance that you could do a video on your technique for the second card that you did? It's INCREDIBLE!

Janet a.k.a. swanlady21 said...

4 gorgeous cards, but I love the rainbow ones. Amazing the difference when you use white instead of black. I think I like the contrast of the black one more.

Oliev said...

Gorgeous yummy cards!

Miriam Prantner said...

Wow! These are all wonderful, but that second card with the blue/green/gold absolutely amazing!!!

Daria said...

Wonderful cards! I am especially drawn to the second card, the one you called "grungy." I absolutely love that one.

Jenniferk said...

Beautiful cards, I love your first card, the background is amazing and really allows the flowers to pop and I think the tiny sequence in the middle to the flowers looks fantastic!

Linda Anderson said...

Love the depth of color on your flower cards and the bling that makes the blue one pop. Great idea to use the entire stamp set as a background stamp. Very fun. I like both white and black embossed cards. Thanks for sharing.

Super Stick Chick said...

Fabulous cards. Love the grungy flowers with all the gold and vibrant color. In the photo it almost looks like you painted them on vellum.

Carolee McCaslin said...

WOW your cards are stunning!!! Love them all and this new release!!

Deb said...

I really like how you used the sequins for the center of the flowers on your first card. Your second card is breath-taking! LOVE the color and grungyness of it! I didn't realize the border set was even new until you used it. I really like how you used all of them together to make the background - especially the white embossed. Thanks for sharing!

I am sorry I missed this post. (I was out of state with limited access to internet. ) Love the blue and green with the gold. It's just stunning and the finished card is so beautiful! I am kind of stuck on a blue/copper color combo myself right now! I might have to try out some of my new embossing powders to see if I can get colors this bold. Love it. Thanks. (This image is going into my"card ideas" file!)
