Altenew February Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY


Hellooo everyoooooone!
How are you all? You must be here from the amazing Justine Hovey's blog.
If you just happen to stop by, please know we are celebrating Altenew's February Stamp/Die and Ink release. I have a complete hop list at the end of this post in case you want to join in all the fun and prizes!
Lets start with the projects. First up is Crafty Life.

Altenew Crafty Life Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

To make my background I used watercolours that aren't released yet. Sorry guys, I made this a while back and we thought the palette would be out by now.

Altenew Crafty Life Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I heat embossed one of the sentiments with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
Also, I used the dies to cut my envelopes and "lets craft together".

Next is the gorgeous Ornamental Flower.

This is beyond beautiful. The stamp set has such fine details and it looks gorgeous after being stamped.

I chose to stick with the Rock Collection for the colours. I have also used black ink.

Again, I used watercolours that arent released yet. Will definitely make sure not to use them till they are released. Sorry :(

The die "love" is from Script Words Sie Set.

Debra Rumpza said...

Erum, I love each and every card you posted today. The first one is just fun, especially to send to a fellow crafter. The second one I love for it's uniqueness in color. I never think of going black, but it's so stunning. And the last one... whew. I adore the coloring, the oval, the die cut... everything about it!

jaydee said...

Erum, stunning cards, as always. The minute I saw the Ornamental Flower on the pre-release I thought it had you written all over it - and your card didn't disappoint. You made the greys looks so incredbly elegant. Gorgeous

No worries about using the new watercolors. Fortunately, the theory is pretty similar no matter which watercolor brand you're using, so it's nice to see the idea put out there. I love the black and white crafty sentiments on top of the colorful background. Then, the greyscale flowers. How do they look so amazing even in greyscale?? That set is magical. Thanks for sharing your beautiful ides with us!

Hello Erum. Oh your cards! Love, love, love them. The all black stamped flower is just gorgeous, but I'm a real sucker for pink, so the next card is my favourite. Am loving that new stamp set so will be sure to look for your cards featuring that, as you said was going to be next. I also love the colours you chose for the leaves - very unusual and match beautifully with the pink flowers. Must try that as it looks gorgeous! "Happy Blossom" I think it is. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us. Am loving the new ink colours too. So pretty. As always, fabulous new products. Thanks for sharing with us.

Judi Szyndrowski said...

Your cards are wonderful. The grey/black theme is unique and lovely. And I do love the second floral. Kudos

TinyCrafter said...

I love your first card with the crafty sayings on your card. I'm debating about getting it when I win. I'm wondering if I would use it enough to justify getting it. When I win I will seriously have to think about it. I love, love, love your colorful background and the face that you used my favorite color in the whole wide world, yellow, makes me smile from CT to CA! LOL I love the few sequins that you used too. You used just the right amount.
Your Ornamental Flowers card is stunning! I didn't like it at first because I am always so colorful but the more I look at it, the more I like it. Again, you used just the right amount of sequins on your card. I love sequins and I see you do too.
Your last card with the love and the pink flowers my niece would really love. She is a huge fan of anything pink. The card is so pretty and I love to watercolor. My faves are my Twinkling H20's and I try to use them as often as I can.
Thanks for showing us your very pretty cards and for giving us the chance to win something.

Corina Dickey said...

Great cards! Love them. Thank you for sharing

Dawn Jones said...

I love the crafty stamp set, how fun!

Jackie said...

You've created some stunning cards Erum, and each one of them is quite unique. I love the colours in the background off your first card. And who would have thought that a black, white, and grey flower bouquet would look so amazing. Then there's your third card. It is gorgeous. Those colours and then the way the foliage softly follows the ovalframe and then the gold sentiment it's just o so elegant! This cards is my favourite of this blog hop. I love love love it!!!

Karenajo said...

Beautiful cards! Especially love the last one with it's soft colors and all the dimension!

Judie said...

Ooooh what beautiful contrasting cards! All amazing!
