Altenew Wondrous World Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to Altenew Wondrous World Release!

You must be here from the lovely Tina Smith's blog.

If not then please start from the Altenew Card Blog so you do not miss any spot on the hop!

Altenew Climber Flowers Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My first card features the gorgeous Climber Flowers Die Set and the Nesting Slim Rectangles.

Altenew Climber Flowers Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

By now you must already know that I die-cut my floral layering dies out of the 9x12 Watercolor cardstock (which I ABSOLUTELY LOVE - no exaggeration) and then I use watercolors to color them.

This time was no different :) I even paired the floral die-cut with the Trellis Cover Die which looks PERFECT here!

Also, notice my tiny butterflies? They are from another cover die, will share that in a bit, keep scrolling :)

Altenew Climber Flowers Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Now, this I had SO much FUN coloring!


Altenew Tulip 3D Embossing Folder + Artist Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The card features the Tulip 3D Embossing Folder. And on the side (right) is the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder. I know that it is a little hard to see as I take photos in daylight, but gosh! That texture is AWESOME. If you liked the previous geometric embossing folders by Altenew, then you will love this too!


Altenew Tulip 3D Embossing Folder + Artist Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used Artist Alcohol Markers to color the panel.
For the sentiment, I used the Miss You Die. I cut out the "miss" and paired the "You" with another sentiment. 

Altenew Tulip 3D Embossing Folder + Artist Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Up next is the GORGEOUS Floral Lace Die.

Altenew Floral Lace Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Oh the ideas I had! And the things I could have made. ONLY if I had the time or maybe an extra set of hands. You know that point when you have SO many ideas and you just can't make "all the things" no matter how hard you try because you have other deadlines. Well yes. THAT. 

Altenew Floral Lace Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Oh and lookey! Those butterflies that I used on my first card were from this Radial Butterflies Cover Die.

Altenew Radial Butterflies Cover Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I colored a panel of A2 Watercolor Cardstock using watercolors from the 24 Pan Set. Let it dry and then ran it through my die-cutting machine with the cover die. Since I don't have any adhesive sheets, I applied them the old-fashioned way by gluing them individually.

My last card features the Daisies 3D Embossing Folder.


Altenew Daisies 3D Embossing Folder + Artist Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Again, I used Artist Alcohol Markers to color the panel. This one I loved so much that I used the complete panel as the card front.

Altenew Daisies 3D Embossing Folder + Artist Alcohol Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I hope you can see that I colored the flowers differently even though I used the same shades.

Altenew Ultimate Watercolor Lovers Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello and welcome to the Altenew Ultimate Watercolor Lovers Blog Hop!

You must be here from Jaycee's blog.

If not then please start from the Altenew Card Blog.


Altenew has released a coloring book and two sets of paintbrushes; detailed and round!! WOOT WOOT!!

Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My colored panel is one of the no-line pages from the book! Yes! It has black outlined images and also very light, grey outlined images too that, as you can see, end up looking like perfect no line watercolor paintings!

Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I thoroughly enjoyed just coloring this. I wish I had filmed. These types of watercolor projects are long and time-consuming. 

Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I took way too many photos of my project because and look how I even stepped up my flatlay game LOL I usually avoid other things/props around my project except for maybe something floral. But this was a special occasion :) 

Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I don't like the last photo above as it's taken from my phone, inside my studio with artificial lights. I am someone who has the luxury of taking photos in gorgeous daylight and artificial light photo straightaway looks like crap to me with harsh shadows. 
But I wanted to share the shot above as well, maybe some of my AECP peeps will find it helpful and we can have a discussion about it.

You must be here from Justine Hovey's blog.


Here is my watercoloured card.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cosmos Layering Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Artists' 24 Pan Set to color the flowers and the Watercolor Brush Markers for the background.
I love the night sky, galaxy kind of look of the background.

Altenew Love & Friendship Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 



You must be here from the talented Teresa Litchfield's blog.

I will be sharing a few projects but will try to keep the post precise.

Altenew Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The card above features the Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set.

Altenew Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used Watercolour Brush Markers to colour the panel.


I will be sharing a tutorial for this (using different a different colour palette) in my upcoming Altenew Academy class :)

Altenew Queen Anemone Stamp Set + Slim Deco Cover Die Set| Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My second card features two products; the Queen Anemone Stamp and the Slim Deco Cover Die Set.

Altenew Queen Anemone Stamp Set + Slim Deco Cover Die Set| Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Tea Party and Coffee Break inks for my images.


Altenew Queen Anemone Stamp Set + Organic Linen 3D Embossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For the card above, I heat embossed the outline image from the  Queen Anemone Stamp in Antique Gold Embossing Powder on Navy Cardstock. I used the coordianting dies to die-cut the images and adhere them onto another panel of Navy Cardstock. I also added gold splatters from the Metallic Watercolour 14 Pan Set

Altenew Queen Anemone Stamp Set + Organic Linen 3D Embossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For my card base, I adhered a cream coloured panel to it which I dry embossed using the Organic Line 3D Embossing Folder. I also inked a embossed panel a little to make the embossing a little more obvious for photos.

Altenew Modern Birthday Faux Letterpress Debossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Modern Birthday Faux Letterpress Debossing Folder on black cardstock. Next I used the Antique Gold Pigment Ink Pad and swiped it over the panel. The ink highlighted the embossed area and gave a very grungy look to the panel. I love the look.

Altenew Modern Birthday Faux Letterpress Debossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I thought I'd add some pennants to it and make it a perfect birthday card. These gold foil triangles are leftover from the Layered Snowflake Cover Die B.

Altenew Foiled Marble Washi Tape | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The card above is super simple. I adhered several washi tapes including the new Foiled Marble Washi Tape.

Altenew Foiled Marble Washi Tape | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Heat embossed the images, die-cut them and adhered it to the panel. Heat embossed the sentiment and finished it off with a few Antique Gold Sequins.

Altenew Red Sunset Slim Washi Tape Set + Tall Alpha Lowercase Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Angled Mosaic Embossing Folder on the top portion of the tag. The Tag was die-cut from the Terrific Tags Die Set. Then I adered the Red Sunset Slim Washi Tapes horizontally and adhered the Tall Alpha Lowecase Die.
