Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Tulip Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hi there everyone!
You must be here from the amazing Therese Calvird's blog.


I will be sharing two cards today.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Tulip | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I will be sharing a video for this soon on the Altenew youtube channel.

I used the Artists' Watercolour Pan Set to colour the die cuts.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Tulip | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The background was a mix of two colours from the Artists' Watercolor Set.
The sentiment is from the Wild and Free Stamp Set.

I kept my second card monochromatic. I used the Watercolour Brush Markers by Altenew. I only used the Jet Black Watercolour Brush Marker in different concentrations.

The sentiment is from the Say it with Love Stamp Set.
I love how both the cards turned out and I hope you liked them too!

AniRey said...

Wow what contrasting colors so vibrant and cheerful and drinking with the contrasting colors of the orange in the background and then dad said dude at the black and white but yet so graphic I love both of these car. It just makes that to look dissect so versatile I love that.

Jade said...

Your first card has such gorgeous color! Lush! Love it!

Erum, both cards are lovely, but I am partial to the monochromatic card, it’s different and I like that. TY

Teri S. said...

WOW Erum! These cards are fantastic!! You had me at watercolour. Love love love the background colours in the wash you created & the tulips are gorgeous! You took a big step outside the box with your second card & I think it suits the lovely sentiment perfectly. Your cards are my favourite of the entire hop. Thanks!

Oh, I can't wait to see the process video, but just seeing the card here is a knock-out! Such beautiful, bold colors and your background wash really makes them pop! Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents with us here. Love this newest flower die set for sure.

From tropical to somber sophistication - Wow!

Linda said...

Your watercolouring makes the card uniquely beautiful.

Becca Yahrling said...

Stunning creations as always! The monochromatic look is really beautiful.

Carol said...

What wonderfully unique cards, Erum! The watercoloured background of the first card really makes the tulips pop. The sedate monotone of the second card makes it a perfect sympathy card - both comforting and respectful.

Laurie2cats said...

Beautiful cards! I love the use of watercolor for the diecuts, and that green background is fabulous.

Linda BL said...

Very different cards, but both are beautiful in their own way. I love that background you created for the first card. It looks lovely with the orange tones in the tulips. I love the gray tulips as well and think the sentiment paired with them makes a wonderful card.

Sandy M said...

Wow! Talk about gorgeous. I am in love with the orange tulips. This card is awesome. Both are beautiful but the orange one is the best.

MadeByMeghanK said...

Wow, two brilliant cards. The sentiment on the first one is so very apt - wild and free, is just perfect for those amazing colours. The second one is just as beautiful but oh, so different. Can’t wait to watch the video.

Hi. I absolutely love anything flowers and this tulip is gorgeous. I'm retired now so sadly I will admire from afar. Such beautiful inspiration

What incredibly different moods each of these cards give me. I also tend to think of Spring time with tulips so I especially loved seeing how you've used them as an elegant sympathy card! The green wash sets those yellow tulips off so beautifully. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing artistic talents on the hop today! This die set definitely is most definitely finding a home in my craft room!
