Altenew September 2022 Enchanted Winter Collection Release Blog Hop

 


Hello and welcome to the Altenew September 2022 Enchanted Winter Collection Release Blog Hop!

You must be here from Mugdha's blog.
 If not, then please head over to the Altenew Card Blog to start the hop from the top, so you don't miss out on anything!

I have two cards to share with you. And I created videos for both of them, which you will see soon on the Altenew YouTube channel on my weekly series there!

Altenew Poinsttia Cluster 3D Embossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @prodigy0

My first card features the Poinsettia Cluster 3D Embossing Folder. Isn't it just gorgeous?! 
So many possibilities with this one!


Altenew Poinsttia Cluster 3D Embossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @prodigy0

I dont want to share much about this card. This one is Artist Alcohol Markers on embossed panel. I hope you will check out my tutorial, which will be live on 9/26 on the Altenew YouTube channel. It is SUPER duper easy. 


Altenew Pine Forest 3D Embossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @prodigy0

This card features the Pine Forest 3D Embossing Folder. I usually prefer blues for my winter-themed cards, especially those that look like this. But I thought I would change things up.

This one is watercolors on embossed panels. Thoroughly enjoyed creating this card.

Hello everyone! 

Welcome to the Altenew September release hop!

You must be here from Amy Hill's blog.



Altenew Mistletoe Wreath Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem \ @pr0digy0




I have two cards to share with you featuring the same stamp. My cards feature the Mistletoe Wreath Stamp Set.


Altenew Mistletoe Wreath Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem \ @pr0digy0



I stamped the image in Obsidian Ink and added splatters of both white and black paint.
Next, I adhered a lot of pearls and gemstones. This looks VERY pretty in person!



Altenew Mistletoe Wreath Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem \ @pr0digy0

I kept the second card super simple. But to add a pop to the layout, I stamped a panel of cardstock using the horizontal lines from the Striped Circle Stamp Set and added that in between the two plain panels.

I created one more card using the Poinsettia stamp but unfortunately, while taking photos it started to rain heavily and it was lying flat under the open sky. I might use it for my weekly video series because I think it is a gorgeous stamp set.

Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop

 


Hi there everyone! 

Welcome to Altenew's August Marvelous Monthly Series.

You must be here from Mindy Eggen's blog.

Altenew Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight


My first card features the Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight.
I used only two inks and the coloring stencil that is in the Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight & Add-on Die Bundle.

Altenew Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight
The inks I used are Sunray and Limeade Crisp Dye Inks. To add dimension and interest, I also added a bit of stenciling using the Grid Stencil and the same two inks. 
I love how this one turned out! 
I have a tutorial for this coming up at the end of this month.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Wood Anemone Outline Stamp Set

I used Artist Alcohol Markers to color this. It is also a one layer card and I used the Monochrome Pencils to add faux dimension.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Wood Anemone Outline Stamp Set

I combined markers from different ink families to get these colors. Video to come soon!


Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Magnolia & Blooms

I used the stencils to color the image and then cut it out to arrange it differently.

Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to Altenew's August release.

You must be here from the amazing Caly Person's blog.


Altenew Rolling Foliage 3D Embossing Folder

My first card features the Rolling Foliage 3D Embossing Folder.

I loved how this one turned out. I kept it super simple and classy.

Altenew Rolling Foliage 3D Embossing Folder

I embossed Blush Cardstock and fussy cut around the embossed area. Next, I used Frosty Pink Pigment Ink and gently swiped it over the panel. I adhered this onto a cream-colored card base; I also added some scored lines on the lower half of the card front for interest.
To finish, I added some pearls to the flower centers.

Altenew Intricate Mandala Stencil

Easiest cards to make, and they look super elegant too!
I used the Altenew Intricate Mandala Stencil on my cards to deboss the stencil design. You can use both the emboss or the debossed version. I adhered it onto my card base and then added some gold splatters. 

The sentiment is from one of the Script Word dies. 


Altenew Intricate Mandala Stencil

Now onto my last card.


Altenew Happy Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle

This one features the Happy Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle.
I apologize but I forgot to note down the ink colors that I used. I know I used a darker ink for the top most flower's second layer as the other two were too bright for me. And I did the same for the leaves, too, just to add a bit of variation among the blues. 

I then used the same blue for my background and my favorite Fine Tulle Stencil.

Altenew Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder | Erum tasneem | @pr0digy0

This is such a fun embossing folder, and I loved getting all inky this time around. The gold flecks you see are from embossing powder and look super cool.


Altenew Playful Circles 3D Embossing Folder | Erum tasneem | @pr0digy0

I think this would be a perfect card for a guy!


Altenew Sunshine Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Again, got super inky here too. I followed the letterpress technique for this one and used the Sunshine Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder.

Altenew Sunshine Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

It looks beautiful in person, almost like a speckled fabric. Refined jute. I have curtains like this in my studio, minus the flowers :)

Paint-a-flower: China Rose Outline Stamp Set

I have a video for this coming up soon. I used the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set to paint the flower and then used the Woodless Coloring Pencils to add a little bit of shading.

I also added a die-cut circle out of a pattern paper from the Essential Black and White Paper Pack

I have been loving the coloring stencils so on my card which features the Altenew Build-A-Garden: Tulips & Friends.

Altenew Monsteras and Quotes Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0


Altenew Monsteras and Quotes Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I have been really enjoying the simple colouring stencils, you guys! I do not feel like colouring anymore! Seriously. I just have my blending brushes right next to me and and the inks at arms reach... I know I will pick up the stencils, mix a few inks from different colour families and j just have fun with the stamps! You can clearly see how shaded and varied my leaves look!


Altenew Captivating Blooms Stamp Set Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My second card features the Captivating Blooms Stamp & Stencil Bundle.

Altenew Captivating Blooms Stamp Set Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Again, I used the colouring stencils and a mix of inks. I kept changing the pressure of my hand when I was applying the ink so that I ended up with shaded florals. I think they look really cool!
