Altenew Geometry & Nature Stencils Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello!
You must be here from Cheiron Brandon's blog.
Welcome to Altenew Geometry and Nature Blog Hop!

I have a few cards to share with you. Let's start with this colourful number first.

Altenew Colour Block Triangle Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The card features the Colour Block Triangle Stencil.
I traced some of the portions of the stencil then doodled in a few areas.

Then I used Artists' Watercolour to colour my panel.

 The heart die is from the Halftone Hearts Nested Dies and I have used the Woven Stencil to dry emboss it! 
I have used the Circled Sentiments Stamp Set for my sentiment. Also, I used the Satin Gold Sequins and Gold Thread from the Altenew store.

Altenew Leaf Bed Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The card above features the Leaf Bed Stencil that I have used to dry emboss my card panel. I used Industrial Diamond Dye Ink and the  Large Ink Blending Tool on Crest Solar White 80lbs cardstock.
The image is from the Kind Reminders Stamp Set.

The third card features the Castle Motif's Stencil
For this, I used Jet Black Dye Ink and the Large Ink Blending Tool on gray cardstock.

For the sentiment, I chose the Simply Thank You Die and used my Artists Markers to colour the panel then die-cut the die out of it. I also used a white layer of the same die-cut as an offset.

I inked the edges a bit with the leftover ink on the tool for interest and drama. And also added glossy accents on the sentiment!

Altenew Mighty Corners Stencil  | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

You must have already seen this one before. I shared a video for this too, you can find it HERE
This card features the Mighty Corners Stencil and I just love the look of this stencil.

Altenew Beauty of the Season Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



 

Hello!

You must be here from Laura Bassen's blog.

Welcome to Altenew September 2020 Release Hop.

I made quite a few projects to share for this hop but unfortunately, the photos didn't come out right so I will be sharing just two projects with you. Even these photos I thought were pretty dark but I couldn't take photos outside as it was raining heavily those days.


My first card features the Kind Reminders Stamp Set. I will be doing a stamp focus for this stamp soon on the Altenew blog. Do keep an eye out.

Altenew Kind Reminders | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started by stamping the image in Permanent Black Ink. Next, I used the Kind Reminders Simple Colouring Stencil to color the image using inks from Coffee Break And Rock Collection.

How easy is colouring through these colouring stencils?! WOW. I was blown away!

Altenew Kind Reminders | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Next, I took a piece of Woodgrain Powder Cardstock and cut it out into a circle. I used one of the coffee inks to completely ink it dark brown.
I used the same Woodgrain Powder Cardstock for the card front, this time, in its original colour. Then I added a few fine black splatters. And next, I adhered the circle with foam tape and set this slightly off the edge. I snipped off the excess part of the circle.

Altenew Kind Reminders | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I popped up the image over the circle base with foam tape. Then added the sentiments and Satin Gold Sequins.
I did go back in to add details with matching Artist Markers. GAH! I couldn't stop myself! 


My next card features the Mega Hello Debossing Folder.

Altenew Mega Hello Debossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This is such a perfect debossing folder to have if you are one who likes to whip up a quick card!

I ran the Woodgrain Powder Cardstock with the folder through my die-cutting machine and viola! That was it basically. But I thought I would add a little bit of me to this by inking up the panel slightly to make the "hello" a bit more prominent (for the photos).
I used leftover ink from the project the I shared first and lightly inked the panel.
Then I added a second sentiment and a tiny heart from the Green Fields Enamel Dots.

I think the Woodgrain Powder Cardstock did enhance the look even more. I am on my last sheet of this cardstock! YIKES! Need to get this ASAP.

I had a couple more cards featuring the Positive Vibes Stamp Set too and more inspiration using the Kind Reminders Set, but I think I will share them some other time when I will be able to take better photos.


Prizes!

Altenew Enjoy the Ride Scrapbook Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

  

Hello!
You must be here from Elsie Robinson's blog.

Welcome to Enjoy The Ride Scrapbook Collection.

I have three cards to share with you featuring Enjoy The Ride and Blooming Ephemera.

I don't have much to tell about these cards, they are self-explanatory. 

I just layered up the pattern papers and ephemera.


And added gold glitter cardstock to all three cards for a little sparkle.


For this, I did stamp the sentiment from the Snapshot Stamp Set.



And lastly this one.

All these cards came together rather quickly.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi there everyone!
You must be here from the fabulous Kathy Racoosin's blog.


Welcome to Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily Release Blog Hop!
You can start from the Altenew blog. That is where the fun starts!

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I will not be going into detail about the watercolouring process for this card because I have a video for you scheduled to go live on 8/31 at the Altenew YouTube channel! YAY! 
Because of my new setup, it has become easier for me to record my processes more frequently and easily.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The image looked quite daunting really. And I kept looking at the outlines as so not mix them up but I did mix up one flower with the leaf! LOL but hey? You cant tell, can you? :)

I had so much fun colouring this. The colours I used are Ruby Red from the Watercolor Brush Markers, the yellow and greens from the Artists' Watercolour Pan Set. I did use a bit of Moss Watercolour Brush Marker pigment as well. 

To make colouring easier and the process a tad faster for me, I did heat emboss the image.

I used my go-to stippling technique to add texture to the image. 

I kept the remaining card super simple. The total time it took me to colour this image was 21:25 minutes, that's how long the footage is and mind you, I was snacking in between too HAHA

Altenew Texture Adventure Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Hi there everyone!
Welcome to Altenew Stand-alone Dies Release!
You must be here from Kelly Griglione's blog.

I have one project to share with you featuring the Burlap Texture Die.
I stamped the base layer of Fabulous Florets in Fresh Lemon Dye Ink then went with the Pinkalicious Dye Ink for the second layer. Next, I used a red and a pink Prismacolor pencil to add details for the petals. For the flower centers, I used Artist Markers in browns and a black pen.
For the leaves, I used Milk Chocolate and Almond Butter Dye Inks. I also added pencil details to the leaves using various shades of brown.

Before adhering the Burlap Texture die-cut in kraft, I added a light colour wash of Espresso Watercolor from the 36 Pan Set. 
I adhered all images on foam tape. The sentiment is from Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set.

I am sharing one card with you which features the gorgeous Darling Rose Stamp Set and the Nesting Ovals Die Set.

I have a video for this card which will go live on the Altenew YouTube channel on 8/24 (fingers crossed).
It is really very simple watercolouring you guys!! You will have fun colouring with me. This is wet on wet technique and I let the water do most of the work.

I also included an oval frame to enhance my floral setting and give it a landing.
