Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello friends!
Welcome to another wonderful Altenew release.
My first card features Starry Flowers and Rustic Linen.

Altenew Starry Flowers and Rustic Linen | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Rustic Linen stamp set on my background. I heat embossed it with Translucent Pearl embossing powder. To this I added some watercolour splatters.

I coloured the image with Artist markers and then die cut it using a coordinating die.

Altenew Fine Frames Circle and Fine Alphabet Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
This is a die with many possibilities. I used gold foil cardstock to cut out the die several times. I then altered the die cut pieces so they all have different sizes (or number of rings). I wanted the die cuts to mimic records.

After building my background I popped up the die cut words and added some gold confetti.

My third card features the Crown Bloom stamp set.

I heat embossed the flowers in gold and then watercoloured these with distress reinkers.

I die cut the images with coordinating die and popped them on the card front with foam tape.

My last card features the Fabulous Floral Stamp set.

For my card front, I used the woodgrain pattern paper from Our Family Scrapbook collection. 
For my flowers I used Shades of Purple and Cherry Blossom ink sets. For the leaves, I used Sweet Dreams ink set.

Your cards are, as always, fantastic. I'm pretty sure you can do no wrong when it comes to coloring; your florals are amazing. But this time, I'm drawn to your mod You Rock card.

Thank you so much for sharing all your lovely ideas!
