Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY


Hello friends!
Welcome to another totally AMAZEBALLS release!
You must be here from the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

I will be highlighting the Creative Edges: Lace Die and Thinking of You Die in my post today.


Altenew Creative Edges: Lace Die | Little one Stamp and Die Set | Sentiment and Quotes Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The second I saw this die, I kneeew I had to create this background or a panel.
I have had this idea for a while now and was waiting for the right moment.

Altenew Creative Edges: Lace Die | Little one Stamp and Die Set | Sentiment and Quotes Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I die cut the lace edge several times in white. I then inked my laces in the Cherry Blossom shades starting from (top to bottom) Razzleberry, Rubellite, Pinkalicious and Pink Diamond.

Altenew Creative Edges: Lace Die | Little one Stamp and Die Set | Sentiment and Quotes Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The baby onesie is from Little One stamp and die set and the sentiment is from Sentiments & Quotes.
The pink heart is an enamel dot from The New Day Card Kit. You can also purchase the enamel dots separately HERE.

Altenew Thinking of You die | Frosted Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I kept this one simple. This die is big and absolutely WONDERFUL!
I love big word dies! I kept my background simple watercoloured using Lagoon and Parrot Crisp Inks.

Altenew Thinking of You die | Frosted Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I layered my die cut a couple of times and then used a silver mirror off set.


Altenew Thinking of You die | Frosted Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

You can see the silver more clearly in this photo.

Altenew Thinking of You die | Frosted Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The sentiment "sweet friend" is from Frosted Garden Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Pure White Embossing Powder. In the end I added beautiful Studio Katia Majestic Fusion sequins.

On to the good stuff now!

I have another Altenew stamp set for new born babies and one of the quotes says each new baby starts the world a new and they do. Beautiful idea layering the lace die cuts. I also liked the thinking of you with offset of silver, another blogger did offset of gold. Great minds, with great talent, do this alike.

Lorraine Turner said...

Hi Erum,

Love the two card designs, so different both of them. Firstly the lacy one, what a lovely way to set off the tiny baby suit for a new baby card. Beautiful hombre effect with the different coloured inks.

Then the second, wow I love large sentiments. This one looks particular fantastic on the watercolour background but what I particular love is that you have put a silver die cut of the sentiment underneath. I usually put one on the top, I definitely am going to try this out next card I do with a large sentiment.

Thank you for your inspiration. :O)

F. Andre said...

The baby card is just precious! The large thank you sentiment really stands out and I love that it can be the focus of the card front. Thanks for the inspiration.
