Altenew February 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi there everyone!
You must be here from Keeway Tsao blog.

Welcome to Altenew's February Release.

I have four very simple cards to share with you.

Altenew Beautiful Peony Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
*There is a typo in the sentiment, it has since then been corrected by Altenew

My first card features the Beautiful Peony Stamp Set. 
I watercoloured the flower with 36 Pan Watercolour Set and die cut the image with coordinating dies.
To add interest, I used the word sentiments and stamped them with Silver Lake Dye Ink

I also added a bit of pattern paper from the Black and White Essentials Paper Pack.

Altenew Dotted Blooms Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

When I saw this Dotted Blooms Stamp Set, I wanted to use it as is and make a black and white card. Just simple, classic background building. Added a strip of cardstock with a sentiment. All images are heat embossed with Crystal Clear embossing powder so that they appear super crisp and bold.

Here is another sample using the Dotted Blooms Stamp Set.

Again, I stamped the images with Versafine and heat embossed them using Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. Next, I used Frosty Pink and Coral Berry Artist Markers to add a little bit of colour to the flowers.
To add a little interest, I added fine black paint splatters.

 Altenew Baroque Motifs Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This gorgeous stamp set is called Baroque Motifs. I started by stamping this with Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed it. Then I inked the panel using Black Soot Distress Ink.

I popped up an "M" from Classic Alphabet Die Set. I applied black glitter to this and added a white offset to make it stand out.

Altenew Lavender Bud Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For this card, I used the Lavender Bud Stamp Set. I did a bit of ombre stamping with Hydrangea and Ultraviolet Dye Inks. For the green bits, I used Green Field and Shadow Creek Dye Inks.

For the background, I used the 36 Pan Watercolour Set to add a bit of loose watercolouring and tons of splatters. I also added Gold Glitter Tape for interest.
