Altenew 7th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway (over $1,400 in Total Prizes)

 


Hello!

You must be here from the most amazing Amanda Baldwin's blog. She has the biggest heart! If you don't follow her on Instagram, I urge you to do! She will leave you the loveliest comments!


It's such a joy working for a company you absolutely adore! And I truly love working for Altenew.

I started as a card design team member in 2017 and now I am part of the video team plus also play a huge role as a coordinator for the Altenew Educators Certification Program (AECP) since December 2018.



My card was inspired by the packaging of one of the items that Altenew will be launching soon. It would have been here but due to the production delay, we will introduce it next month. 

I stamped the flowers and leaves using the layering stamps. SHOCKER! But hey?! I did watercolor the background!

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set & Gradient Cardstock Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

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

Hello and welcome to Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cistus and Gradient Cardstock Release.

You must be here from Nichol Spohr's blog.


My card is quite "clean and simple" considering my style :)

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

I die-cut my flowers out of Crest Solar White Cardstock for a change.
But I did die-cut my leaves out of  the 9x12 watercolor cardstock and used the Watercolor Brush Markers to color them.

For the flowers, I used Vanilla Cream Dye Ink and the Detailed Blending Brushes to add a bit of inking.
And for my background, I used a couple of colours from the Watercolor Brush Markers.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Coneflower Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Coneflower | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0


You must be here from the talented Amanda Baldwin's blog. I am a big fan of hers!


You will see my card and think that I must have spent quite a bit of time colouring these flowers. But in reality, it was the die-cutting that took more time than the colouring!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Coneflower | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Altenew Woodless Watercolor Pencils to color these pretties including the background.

Here is a closeup to show you that I messed up die-cutting on one of the flowers but you really can't tell!

Altenew Storybook Fantasy Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to the Altenew March Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Release!

You must be here from the blog of Nichol Spohr.

Altenew Hill Blossoms Layering Stencil Set (2 in 1) and Tall Tale Bookmark Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I don't remember exactly what inks I used, sorry about that. But I used a mix of ink families for the orange. 
And for the green, I tried to apply ink in a way that it appears shaded.

For my background, I used the 36 pan Watercolor Set to create a textured watercolor look.

Altenew Modern Swans Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Modern Swans Stamp Set on my card and paired it with the Create-a-Wreath Die Set.

After stamping, I used color pencils to add details to the swan and the lake. Additionally, I drew clouds and created a scene.

As my card front was quite plain, I added scored lines on the front for a textured look.

Altenew Fairy Tale Florals Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the image from the Fairy Tale Florals Stamp Set onto Crest Solar White Cardstock and then heat embossed it in Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. Then I used the Fairy Tale Florals Simple Coloring Stencil Set (2 in 1) and a couple of blue inks to color my images.

Next, I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the image and set it aside. 

For the background, I used Jet Black Watercolor Brush Marker to color.
I will probably share a video tutorial soon. This was a super easy card to create, especially as I didn't spend a lot of time and effort in coloring. The coloring stencils do make the work easier for you!
