Altenew  Paint-A-Flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia Outline Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I did a bit of underpainting on this one to achieve a more artsy look and a well-blended background. I used the 24 Pan Artists' Watercolor Set. 
I even filmed the entire process, I will share it soon if there is interest.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Daffodil & Glitter Cardstock Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello! You must be here from the amazingly awesome Amanda Baldwin's blog.

Welcome to the Craft-A-Flower: Daffordil + Glitter Cardstock Release Blog Hop!



I dont have any Craft-a-Flower project to share with you, but I will be sharing two cards featuring the glitter cardstock!
My first card features the Forest Canopy and Ocean Reflection Glitter Cardstock.



I used the Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set to cut out several circles and create this card. Usually I limit this design to five to seven circles. But, in this case, I wanted to feature all the colours of the cardstock and therefore it looks more like a blob 😂.



One of my favourite go to card layouts. I often use this to feature pattern papers or different smaller sized stamps. But for this one, I did something a tad different. I cut several pieces of Pink Brilliance Glitter Cardstock into various widths of strips. Then I adhered these onto a panel and die-cut it using one of the hearts from the Halftone Hearts Die Set. And also die-cut a few other hearts.


I adhered all these on different levels of foam tape on the Woodgrain Powder cardstock card front.

These Glitter Cardstocks are YUMMYYY!!! And oh-so-sparkly! These are going to sell out fast, but if they do, don't forget to sign-up to be notified when they are back in stock because you HAVE to HAVE them in your stash!!!

Altenew Adventures Ahead Stamps/Dies/Stencils/More Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to June Stamp/Die Release.

You must be here from Terri Koszler's blog.


For my first card, I used the Reach for the Stars Die Set. For the background, I used the Cloudy Day 3D Embossing Folder.



I also inked the embossed background by swiping a gold ink pad over it. Then I added some splatters too. For the stars, I used the Halftone Stars Nesting Die Set.



For this card, which turned out BEAUTIFUL by the way, I used the entire Sisters of the Heart Stamp, Die, and Colouring Stencil Bundle for this card.


I cant list all the colours I used as I used a lot. And I also used Artist Alcohol Markers to add a few details on the leaves. Also including a graphite pencil to add shading to the stamping in the bbackground.


Again, I used the Sisters of the Heart Stamp which I watercoloured using the Watercolour Brush Markers. I then Die-cut the image and set it aside.
I watercoloured another panel and then dry embossed it using the Brick Wall 3D Embossing Folder.


For my last card, I used the same Sisters of the Heart Stamp Set to create a one-layer card.


I used Artist Alcohol Marker to colour this and kept it super simple.


There you have it! Quite a few ideas on how to use the new products!

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)

 


Hello and welcome to the Paint-A-Flower: Lotus blog hop.

You must be here from Sandhya's blog.


I wanted to give the underwater plants a glow-in-the-dark kind of a look. And I think I did achieve it somewhat. The colouring may look a little messy but it looks great in person. And you know me, I disapprove of my work right away if I think its not worth it. But this one looks really cool in person. 


As you can see, I tried to create a halo effect for the elements that are under the water but I coloured everything that's above the water normally.
This took me a while to do but it looks so cool with so many colours in the form of splatters. If you look at the base carefully, you will be able to see blue, brown, rust, and shades of green.
I hid my fish though LOL You can still spot them :)

Hello and welcome to the Majestic Bouquet Blog Hop!

You must be here from the talented LauraJane's blog.


I have one card to share with you.



I stamped you guys! No colouring! Only stamping. Took me ages! LOL
I was regretting it! It would have been so much faster if I had just watercolor the image. 



Still, I added those hand-drawn lines I usually add behind my floral arrangements. 

This Majestic Bouquet is a HUGE stamp! HUGE! And oh-so-gorgeous!

Altenew Exotic Garden Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to the Altenew Exotic Garden Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing
Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

You must be here from Svitlana Shayevich's blog.

I have a few projects to share with you so I will keep this short and just link the products.

I actually got confused between two releases and I thought I was creating cards for two separate releases where in fact I was only creating for one!


The project features the Tropical Jungle Stamp Set and the Coordinating Die Set.


The background for this card turned out so cool. I shared it on my Instagram for Kathy Raccoosin's colouring challenge.



I used Watercolor Brush Markers to colour the background and the images.





The card features the Simply Spring Stamp Set.


I used Woodless Watercolor Pencils to color the image.



The card features the Simply Spring Stamp Set. And just look how different it looks here!


Kept it super simple and it looks gorgeous!


I was having fun creating boutique cards! So here is another one, featuring the Enchanting Beauty Stamp Set.


I did add a few gold splatters to this one!




My watercolour card features the Enchanting Beauty Stamp Set.


This looks mesmerizing in person! The texture, sparkle, and the gradation of colour is all so gorgeous!!


Now onto the embossing folders.


I have swiped the Altenew gold ink pad over it.



I adorned it with gems. It kinda looked very traditional so I popped the Eid Mubarak sentiment on it!



The card features Monstera Leaves 3D Embossing Folder. I used gold foil over it.


The card looks so classy and chic in person!


Lastly, again, I used the Monstera Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.


This time I used markers to colour over the panel.
