Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
You must be here from the amazing Heidi Jakobs blog.

 I have four projects to share with you today. They are all relatively clean and simple so there is not a lot of explaining to do.

My first card uses the following products:


Altenew Focus on You Stamp Set  Focus on You Die Set  Sincere Greetings  Dotted Scales Debossing Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Dotted Scales Debossing Die to die cut a panel, snipped off some portion from the top and adhered plain cardstock there. I covered up the cut line with a strip of light gray cardstock.


Altenew Focus on You Stamp Set  Focus on You Die Set  Sincere Greetings  Dotted Scales Debossing Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I watercoloured my stamp images with these two brush markers I have by Kuretake. They are not zigs. I use them for brush lettering practice.

Altenew Focus on You Stamp Set  Focus on You Die Set  Sincere Greetings  Dotted Scales Debossing Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The sentiment is from Sincere Greetings Stamp Set.


Altenew Focus on You Stamp Set  Focus on You Die Set  Sincere Greetings  Dotted Scales Debossing Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Isn't the pattern just beautiful?

Altenew Focus on You Stamp Set  Focus on You Die Set  Sincere Greetings  Dotted Scales Debossing Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Next up, my second card uses


Altenew Dotted Scales Debossing Die  Mega Succulent Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0diigy0

On this card I used the Dotted Scales Die as is and added pearls to the connecting points. I glued the pearls more spaced out as I went down the panel.


Altenew Dotted Scales Debossing Die  Mega Succulent Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0diigy0

The sentiment is from Mega Succulent Stamp Set. I heat embossed it on vellum with Pure White Embossing Powder.

Next up is my third card.


Altenew Focus on You Stamp Set | Coloured with Artist Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

On this card I did a little masking and built my border using the stamps from Focus on You Stamp Set. 


Altenew Focus on You Stamp Set | Coloured with Artist Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I coloured the stamps with Artist Markers and added shadow with a gray pencil.

Now onto my last card.
Product used


Altenew Miss You Word Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Again, I went with a simple design. I cut out Miss You several times to make my own chipboard words. The top most layer was inked with distress inks.


Altenew Miss You Word Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I added white paint splatters to the card front and a strip of washi behind the stamped sentiment. I also covered my die cuts generously with glossy accents.


Altenew Miss You Word Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

That is all from my side today, now on to the good stuff.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Beautiful project. Love all the added embellishments. Thank you for inspiring me today

TinyCrafter said...

I love those delicate purple flowers on your first card with just the right amount of sequins on it. I especially love the yellow centers because yellow is my favorite color in the whole wide world. I also love that pink ribbon. The background is so amazing but I don't own a die cutter so I can't possible do what you did. Darn it all!
Your pink card with the pearls is so stunning and girly. It reminds me of a pink sweater I used to have a long time ago.
There are those cute tiny flowers again and I still love them! If I win, these are one of the stamps I want. They can be used for any kind of card.
I love, love, love how you did that miss you card. Again, no die cutter for me. I love how you did the black background because it makes the other colors pop.
Thank you for showing us your pretty, colorful, creative cards and for giving us the chance to win something.

Diana said...

Your work is simply stunning!! Maybe one day I can grow up and color like you. TFS.

Ellen Dematos said...

Oh your pink card is so feminine! And your other images are beautifully colored. Very nice!
