Altenew April 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Stamping Mat/Sequins Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hi there everyone!
You must be here from Reiko Tsuchida's blog, welcome to Altenew April 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Stamping Mat/Sequins Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.

I will be sharing two cards with you today!

Altenew Mega Bloom Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My first card features the gorgeous Mega Bloom Stencil. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it and colour it in! And that is exactly what I did. I inked up the panel in Puffy Heart Dye Ink with a blending brush with a light hand and then used the same ink through the stencil to get a light detail of the stencil design.
Once the design was on the cardstock, I used the Cosmic Berry, Purple Wine, Puffy Heart, Rose Quartz from Artist Markers Set D to colour my image.
For the sentiment, I combined two of these from the Sentiment Strips 2 "Be Strong Be Brave" and stamped it with Obsidian Pigment Ink. This is such a perfect sentiment nowadays and we need to keep telling each other this every single day!

Next up is another floral card!

Altenew  Precious Blooms Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This one features the Precious Blooms Stamp Set and it is a layering stamp set but I have used just the outlines and heat embossed it in Antique Gold Embossing Powder.
If you want to know how I coloured the images, you can follow my tutorial HERE and HERE. You can thank me later :D
The colours of Watercolour Brush Markers used are Ruby Red and Rouge for the flowers. And Emerald, Limeade, and Moss for the leaves. The card front is Woodgrain Powder Cardstock. And my card also features the NEWEST Antique Gold Sequins! We have three shades people! And in the most prettiest bottles ever!

I love the blog hops, but I always jump to your post first Erum. Two stunning cards again. For me, the pinks with the gold embossing powder is an all time favorite. Thank you for the inspiration.

Jane B. said...

Once again your cards are amazing. I've watched your tutorial for your watercolor technique and I believe it suits me well. After your last post I tried it and realized I needed to purchase the Altenew watercolor brush pens because they have more liquid which you need for this to work. So, I'm saving my pennies to purchase a set. Thanks for the inspiration!

Karthikha said...

Ohhhh I love the pink Precious Petals with gold embossing. I wasn't quick enough to get it ordered on the first day. But I'll for sure get it when it comes back. A girl can never have enough flower stamps. Right?

Teri S. said...

Erum your cards are just so beautiful! I know that word gets used so often & perhaps it's meaning is being lost, but in this case, it's true. I watched both your videos & thank you for posting them. Watercolour is my favourite medium, which does not mean I do it well, but that I appreciate seeing the results of those who do.I really like the way you gold embossed just the outline of the flower & then watercoloured it. So lovely.

Wow! Just beautiful! I love the vibrant colors and the gold embossing!
