Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 2


Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of Altenew September release blog hop.
You must be here from Laura Bassen's blog.
I will make this short and quick. Let's get on with the cards.
First up is the Halftone Stars and Coordinating Die Set.

Halftone Stars Stamp and Diw set Blackand gold Shaker card | Erum Taseem | @pr0digy0

For my card I used the Halftone Stars coordinating dies to make a shaker card. I also added gold glitter mat which I made by using the gold glitter tape.

Altenew Just Because Stamp Set,  Holiday Script Words and Happy Holidays Stamp Set. |Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I used Pure White Crisp embossing powder to heat emboss my image. I then went in with a white Prismacolor to colour the image. I have done this previosuly last year for Advent Calendar Etravaganza. You can find the older card HERE.

I cut out the word "Merry" a few times, glued them together then covered it with white glitter.
I also added a white strip with the sentiment from Happy Holidays stamp set.

In the end I added some sequins and gems from Studio Katia.

Altenew With Gratitude Stamp and Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
This is my favourite. The  most clean and simple card using With Gratitude stamp and die set. I will be featuring this stamp soon on theAltenew blog in a Stamp Focus post, don't miss it.

I heat embossed the bigger of the two leaves from the set and watercoloured it using different distress inks.

WOW! Your Halftone Stars shaker card blows my mind! It is so luxurious and elegant! Looking at it is almost like eating a deliciously decadent chocolate! True artistry!
The vibrant Merry card is stunning and the With Gratitude card is simply spectacular! TFS!

Astrid said...

I really like the way you have focused on the lovely maple leaf by using layers. Very clean and simple but elegant at the same time. The colours for the leaf also seem to pop next to the gold embossing.

Melissa Friedrich said...

Beautiful cards, LOVE this elegant star shaker, the white on red bouquet is stunning and the multiple mats for the leaf card is clean looking and so pretty.

Betty Keefe said...

your "gratitude" card is especially gorgeous - love that die!

bev p said...

Just when I think I can think outside the box, somebody else shows me how conventional I am. I never thought of gold and black for the stars or the red and whte and using that stamp on a Christmas card. And both are beautiful. I did think of those colors for the leaves! Love how the multiple layers really draws attention to the focal image. So pretty! Thank you.

Julie said...

I am a huge fan of lots of color, but those first two cards are stunning even with their limited palettes. Love it; thanks for sharing!

Kailash said...

Wow - That black/gold is stunning! And white on red is my favorite Christmas combination - thanks for the tip about coloring it in with a white pencil. I don't think I'd have thought about doing that and it adds so much. Have to tell you - I saw your autumn card earlier, and it's the reason I already bought the stamp and die set. It's gorgeous! So much inspiration in your post.
