Altenew January Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway


Hello everyone!!!
Welcome to Altenew January Release Blog Hop II!
We are releasing 18 stamp sets, 18 die sets, and 12 inks!

You are here from the talented Eunyoung Lee's place.
If you just happen to stop by please start at the beginning from the Altenew blog.
You can also find the complete hop list at the end of this post.

I made four cards to share with you!
The first two cards feature the Smile More stamp set.


@Altenew Smile More stamp set pencil colored (faber castell classic) by @pr0digy0
I watercoloured the background using distress stains and pencil coloured the flowers using Faber Castell classic pencils.
My card was severely lacking some bling so I added the smallest size sequins I could find as flower centers. Closeup photo below where you can see the colouring detail, a bit of masking I did and the sparkly sequins.

For my second card I went with a more messy, grungy watercolour style.
I am a little bummed that the photo didn't come out right.
I heat embossed my flowers in gold using Ranger Superfine Embossing Powder.
I watercoloured the flowers and leaves using Gansai Tambi watercolours and then fussy cut them.
There is a coordinating die for this stamp set too, I didn't have one but you can get from the store here.

I added a bit of gold watercolour to this blue green combination.
I love the two tone watercolouring, you will be seeing more of that in my next post.
It looks super messy but oh-so-gorgeous in person!
Even the background (that looks brown in photo) is gold!

And my final set of cards using the Basic Borders stamp set and the gorgeous silver glitter tape.

Instead of pulling out a single stamp to make my border, I chose to use the whole stamp set as a background stamp!
Doesn't it look cool?!
I couldn't decide if I wanted to keep the one with white heat embossing or one with black ink so here I am sharing both versions.
I used the  silver glitter tape to make my mat for the watercoloured panels.
These tapes are beautiful and the glitter doesn't come off (there is one in gold too!).
You should definitely get your hands on them.

For the above card I used "hello" from the Super Script Stamp set and white heat embossed the Basic Borders stamp on watercolour paper.
I watercoloured the background using distress stains.

For my card above I used Archival ink in Jet Black to stamp my "background" and watercoloured the piece with distress stains.
The word "Friend" is from the Super Script Stamp set, which I heat embossed on black cardstock.

That is all from my side today!
Now on to the good stuff!
