Altenew April 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Stamping Mat/Sequins Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi there everyone!
You must be here from Reiko Tsuchida's blog, welcome to Altenew April 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Stamping Mat/Sequins Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.

I will be sharing two cards with you today!

Altenew Mega Bloom Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My first card features the gorgeous Mega Bloom Stencil. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it and colour it in! And that is exactly what I did. I inked up the panel in Puffy Heart Dye Ink with a blending brush with a light hand and then used the same ink through the stencil to get a light detail of the stencil design.
Once the design was on the cardstock, I used the Cosmic Berry, Purple Wine, Puffy Heart, Rose Quartz from Artist Markers Set D to colour my image.
For the sentiment, I combined two of these from the Sentiment Strips 2 "Be Strong Be Brave" and stamped it with Obsidian Pigment Ink. This is such a perfect sentiment nowadays and we need to keep telling each other this every single day!

Next up is another floral card!

Altenew  Precious Blooms Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This one features the Precious Blooms Stamp Set and it is a layering stamp set but I have used just the outlines and heat embossed it in Antique Gold Embossing Powder.
If you want to know how I coloured the images, you can follow my tutorial HERE and HERE. You can thank me later :D
The colours of Watercolour Brush Markers used are Ruby Red and Rouge for the flowers. And Emerald, Limeade, and Moss for the leaves. The card front is Woodgrain Powder Cardstock. And my card also features the NEWEST Antique Gold Sequins! We have three shades people! And in the most prettiest bottles ever!

Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

You must be here from the AH-mazing Jennifer Mcguire's blog
Welcome to Altenew's 6th Anniversary Hop Day 1! WOOT! I am SO excited. 
I was asked to join Altenew in January 2017. I remember I read May's message several times and I was like "What? NO WAY! ME? I don't even know how to talk!" HA! look at me now, making videos and chatting away! I still struggle, but oh how far I have come!

I LOVE THIS COMPANY and everything it makes! I know you love Altenew too!

Here is what I made to celebrate Altenew turning SIX!

Altenew Sweet Nothings Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Blinding right? LOL 
I wanted to make something gold, sparkly and of course colourful!
I used Altenew Watercolour Brush Markers to colour the images. I actually have a snippet of how I coloured these images in the video I shared a few days ago. You can check it out HERE.

Whenever I colour images this way, I colour a ton of them because the colouring process is SO EASY and FAST! It's the drying time that takes a while. I let mine dry overnight. I am glad I made these when I was filming, I whipped up this fantastic card in no time.

Onto the fun stuff now!
