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.

Astonishing as always Erum! I didn’t think I needed the debossing folder before visiting your blog, now it’s on my shopping cart 😊 thanks for the amazing inspiration! Have a wonderful day!

I absolutely love your color choices in the first card. I am collecting all the Altenew ink cubes. I have the Rock Collection, but I think Coffee Break needs to be next. That "Hello" definitely stands alone beautifully! Thank you for sharing!

Love embossing/debossing

MaryAnnHT said...

As always, love your cards. I loved seeing your use of what could be considered non-traditional colors on the floral card---gorgeous and has inspired me to try more unusual color combinations. The HELLO card is a perfect example of how to create a simple card with big impact--love it.

Lovely cards! I would never have thought to use textured paper with the embossing folder, it is gorgeous.

I love the vintage colors of your cards, and you used woodgrain paper so well. I wouldn't have thought to use an embossing folder on top of already embossed paper like that, but it turned out beautifully. Clean and simple perfection!

Love the color choices on your beautiful floral card, and the embossing folder is the ultimate CAS card!
