Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway




Hi!
You must be here from the absolutely fantastic TaeEun Yoo's blog!
Welcome to Altenew's Watercolour Brush Marker release.

Altenew has just released the Tropical Fiesta Watercolour Brush Markers and just like the last two times, they are AMAZING!

I usually create artsy cards during the watercolour brush marker releases but I had zero mojo when I was making my card, so I kept it simple, with not much watercolouring involved except for a flower and leaves.

I stamped the flower from the Wallpaper Art Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.
I used just the Desert Night Watercolour brush marker on my flower and Lava Rock Watercolour Brush Marker for the leaves.
I also used the Essential Black and White Paper pack, along with the gorgeous Silver Glitter Tape.

Studio Katia New Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY





Hi there everyone!
You must be here from the awesome Liliya Rytsar's blog.
Welcome to Studio Katia's New Release Blog Hop.

This release includes 7 new clear stamp sets, 6 sets of coordinating dies, 5 new stand-alone Creative Dies, 6 new Stencils and a new embellishment!

I will be sharing two cards with you today. First up is the gorgeous Aloha Stamp Set.

Studio Katia Aloha Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started by adding a light colour wash to my background using two shades of green. Once that was dry, I added splatters of the same green shades and also that of black watercolour.
Next, I heat embossed the image in Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder and coloured it with Ecoline Watercolours.
Once the watercolour was dry, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the image and stacked it once for sturdiness. 

Studio Katia Aloha Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock with the same embossing powder and arranged both the elements in a way that they fit snuggly.
To finish, I adhered some gorgeous gold confetti.


Studio Katia Star Date Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the star and it's eyes three times, separately. I then coloured these in yellow and kept them aside.
For my background panel, I first inked the panel lightly in an aqua shade and then through the Large Polka Stencil, I applied the same ink with a heavier hand to get darker polka dots.
I love how this came out! Looks like a pattern paper.

To finish, I adhered the stars on a piece of string and then to the card front with foam tape. I also applied glossy accents over the stars.

Spellbinders: Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month (March)



Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month (March) | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi, friends!
I am here with a gorgeous project that I love!
I hope that you will as well.
So my project today is a photo album which is 8x10 inches. I made this as a gift for someone's adorable granddaughter. 
The cover features the Amazing Paper Grace's Die of the Month for Spellbinders.

Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month (March) | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I have made handmade flowers and leaves and combined them with some store-bought mulberry flowers. The lacy die gives such a pretty touch to the cover so I chose to go with pastel shades and light colour wash background.

I even made a box for this, again decorating the lid with more gorgeous Spellbinders dies.

I hope you liked my project featuring the beautiful die by Becca Feeken! I absolutely adore her dies and they always make my projects look regal, pretty and feminine!

Altenew Rennie Rose Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This time I stamped directly on one of the papers from Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection. This paper had a watercolour look with multiple colours so I was able to get a range of colourful stamped images.
I stamped the background creating a graphic, grungy look with the help of Shades of Friendship Stamp Set.
