Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY


Hello!!
Welcome welcome to my humble blog.
I am SO excited today.
Like always this release too is AWESOME!
Altenew has knocked it out of the park with this stencil release.
I love it and I know you will too!

You must be here from the amazing Yoonsun Hur's blog.


Lets start with my first card using the Tree Ring Stencil.

Altenew Tree Ring Stencil. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I used the stencil to emboss the tree ring.
I had to use a metal shim for the lines to really show up properly.
I cut out the embossed area and inked it just like a wood slice would look.
After I was done inking, I popped it over on to my Spicy Yogurt card front using foam tape.
I stamped and diecut a sentiment from Halftone Hearts and popped it over the tree ring cut out.

I added some hearts (from the die in New Day Card Kit) with some glossy accent to add a pop of colour.


Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I made two cards out of one panel that I coloured using Crayola Markers.
I first outlined the stencil with a permanent black pen then shifted it a bit to offset it and added more lines to make one side of the drawn line bolder.
I hope you understand what I am saying.
I turned one card into a shaker card and kept the other very CAS,
Here are the cards individually.

Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I added a bit of shading in the white areas, "the scribble" with a grey colour pencil.
The "hello" is cut out by Bold Alphas dies. 
The sentiment is from Crafty Friends stamp set which is popped over Silver Glitter Tape.

Here is the next card.

Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

This one looks SO GOOD in person.
I used the cut outs from the first card on this one by layering them four times.
All letters are straight except for the "E" which is a little tipped to the left.
I have added glossy accents on the letters and it looks great.

The enamel dots are from the New Day Card Kit. You can also purchase them individually.
The sentiment is from Crafty Friends stamp set.

My final set of cards featuring the Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Again I did the same thing and made two cards out of one panel.
Here I watercoloured the panel using Gansai Tambi watercolours.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I cut out a strip from the panel after watercolouring. Placed the pieces on my base with foam tape.
Placed the diecut "everything" in silver foil from Halftone Everything like it's holding the two pieces together. Added a smaller sentiment on a black cardstock which was embossed using Pure White Crisp embossing powder.

Again, I really like this one. I have noticed I am leaning more towards CAS, less cluttered cards.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I have used the Halftone Everything stamp set again for this card.
What makes this different is that I added glossy accent to the watercoloured areas.
It looks like ceramic, vintage crockery with embossed fruits if you can recall?
Take a look.

I am loving the clean look of this card.

Thats all!

What fabulous ideas. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.

Pat Holcomb said...

Ooooooh! Your cards made me smile out loud! Such fun and colorful uses of the graffiti scribble and your tree ring piece is gorgeous. I didn't think that much of that one until I saw what you did with it.

Wonderful cards!

Gail Plaskiewicz said...

Oh my gosh, did you get creative or what? Wow, I am amazed and impressed with what you did with all the stencils.
The tree ring stencil with the hearts looks like a real tree ring! It looks like wood! I know it's the coloring and the stencil but it's amazing! I love it!
Your 2 graffiti stencils are amazing! That's what I want when I win. I love that one and how colorful they look. You used my favorite color yellow in it. I love shaker cards and you are the first one to make one. I also love the next stencil which is also very colorful. That is another stencil I would love to have.
Thanks for showing us all the beautiful cards you made and for giving us the chance to win something. I hope I win!

loulou said...

Wow Erum, this is taking stencils to a new dimension. I don't think I'll ever look at stencils in the same way again. They are definitely more useful than just apply texture paste. Thanks for the awesome inspiration.

WOW!, I fell in love with you tree stump card (I love all things nature related) so when I saw it, I was blown away. Then I kept reading and scrolling and saw the HELLO cards - love that you were able to make two cards by making one background; GORGEOUS. I kept on reading and scrolling and saw the EVERYTHING card and drooled over that one. I like the vibrancy of the colors and the gold wording make the cards POP.
