Altenew Bulid-A-Flower: Anemone


Altenew Build-A-Flower Anemone no line watercolouring using distress inks by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Hello friends!
As you all know by now that every 15th of the month Altenew reveals a new Build-A-Flower stamp plus die set and this time we are introducing Anemone.

Isn't it gorgeous?!

Here is what I created.

Altenew Build-A-Flower Anemone no line watercolouring using distress inks by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
I went for the no line watercolour look using distress inks as my watercolours.
I wanted to give this card a watercolour illustration look and I think it looks close enough.
I stamped the flowers in Antique Linen and the flower centers are stamped using Black Soot so that they are not crispt but more faded or distressed.

I spent the whole afternoon colouring this layer over layer and waited for it to air dry before adding all the details. I used a very light hand to add my "veins".
I stamped the sentiment over part of the image with Versafine Onyx Black.
When I was gluing down the sequins with Glossy Accents, a big blob dropped on my sentiment and the ink started to run! I had to fix it with a white gel pen and some more watercolouring. You can see the blurry "B".
I added more watercolouring outside the lines to give an illusion of more plants in the distance.
I hope you like my card. I am kinda proud of it since this is a 100% watercolour piece and NO pencils were used in adding details.
You can hop on over to the Altenew Card Blog and the Scrapbook Blog to check out what the other designers made.

That is all from my side.
Have a great day.

Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello everyone!
You must have reached here Laurie Schmidlin's blog.
Welcome to Altenew July 2017 Stamps, Inks and Dies Release Blog Hop.

I have four projects to share with you today.
Let's start with Parrot Paradise.

Altenew Parrot Paradise Stamp Set watercoloured with distress stains and pencil coloured with Prismacolors by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
I did a bit of masking and stamped all the leaves. I stamped the parrot separately on watercolour paper. I coloured the leaves and my "sky" with a mix of distress stains and Gansai Tambi watercolours. I added quite a bit of shading to give an illusion of dimension. 
I coloured the parrot similar to a green winged macaw, fussy cut it out and popped it on my card front.

Next up is the smaller 2x3 stamp set called Little One.

Altenew Little One Stamp Set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
This set comes with a coordinating die set. I stamped out the onesie with Versamark and heart embossed it in white on watercolour paper. I watercoloured it using Cotton Candy Crisp Ink. I then went ahead and stamped all the little elements using the same ink.  
I popped all the diecuts on foam tape and heat embossed my sentiment on a dark grey strip.
I added a glittery heart to the onesie and glittery pennants to go with the baby theme.

Next up is the Totally Tropical Stamp Set
Totally Tropical Stamp Set watercoloured in jewel tones + Love from Script Words Die Set. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
I used jewel tones on my card. Each piece has three to four tones of colour and looks amazing in person. I just don't like the placement of the images. I tried a few times to get the look I wanted but it just wasnt my day and I gave up. 
I have also use the standalone die "Love" from the Script Words die set.
I cut that out using gold mirror cardstock.

Last but not the least, one my favourites CAS cards using the Script Words die set and Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set.
Rainbow Inked Altenew Script Words Die Set + Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
This is a smaller sized card. I diecut the word "hugs" a few times.
I inked one of the layers using distress inks.
I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Sentiments directly below my "hugs" diecut.
In the end I added some glossy accents over "hugs".

Hello friends.
Like every month on the 15th Altenew releases a new flower+die combo.
This time it is a beautiful Ranunculus.




Altenew Build-a-Flower: Ranunculus Release. Watercolouring using Metallic Ink Sprays. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I heat embossed my flower using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
The leaves were watercoloured using Pumice Stone distress ink.
I diecut all the images and popped them on my card front using foam tape.

Altenew Build-a-Flower: Ranunculus Release. Watercolouring using Metallic Ink Sprays. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I have used Spicy Yogurt cardstock for my card front and to it I have added a light colour wash with Pumic Stone distress ink and a few black splatters.
The sentiment is also heat embossed using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I added a thin strip of gold glitter tape to it.

Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY


Hello!!
Welcome welcome to my humble blog.
I am SO excited today.
Like always this release too is AWESOME!
Altenew has knocked it out of the park with this stencil release.
I love it and I know you will too!

You must be here from the amazing Yoonsun Hur's blog.


Lets start with my first card using the Tree Ring Stencil.

Altenew Tree Ring Stencil. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I used the stencil to emboss the tree ring.
I had to use a metal shim for the lines to really show up properly.
I cut out the embossed area and inked it just like a wood slice would look.
After I was done inking, I popped it over on to my Spicy Yogurt card front using foam tape.
I stamped and diecut a sentiment from Halftone Hearts and popped it over the tree ring cut out.

Altenew Tree Ring Stencil. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I added some hearts (from the die in New Day Card Kit) with some glossy accent to add a pop of colour.


Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I made two cards out of one panel that I coloured using Crayola Markers.
I first outlined the stencil with a permanent black pen then shifted it a bit to offset it and added more lines to make one side of the drawn line bolder.
I hope you understand what I am saying.
I turned one card into a shaker card and kept the other very CAS,
Here are the cards individually.

Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I added a bit of shading in the white areas, "the scribble" with a grey colour pencil.
The "hello" is cut out by Bold Alphas dies. 
The sentiment is from Crafty Friends stamp set which is popped over Silver Glitter Tape.

Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Here is the next card.

Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

This one looks SO GOOD in person.
I used the cut outs from the first card on this one by layering them four times.
All letters are straight except for the "E" which is a little tipped to the left.
I have added glossy accents on the letters and it looks great.

Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

The enamel dots are from the New Day Card Kit. You can also purchase them individually.
The sentiment is from Crafty Friends stamp set.

My final set of cards featuring the Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Again I did the same thing and made two cards out of one panel.
Here I watercoloured the panel using Gansai Tambi watercolours.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I cut out a strip from the panel after watercolouring. Placed the pieces on my base with foam tape.
Placed the diecut "everything" in silver foil from Halftone Everything like it's holding the two pieces together. Added a smaller sentiment on a black cardstock which was embossed using Pure White Crisp embossing powder.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
Again, I really like this one. I have noticed I am leaning more towards CAS, less cluttered cards.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I have used the Halftone Everything stamp set again for this card.
What makes this different is that I added glossy accent to the watercoloured areas.
It looks like ceramic, vintage crockery with embossed fruits if you can recall?
Take a look.

Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B and Halftone Everything. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I am loving the clean look of this card.

Thats all!

Altenew May 2017 Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY


Altenew May 2017 Stamp, Die and Embossing Powders Release. Projects by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0




Hello everyone
You must be here from Flora Monika Farkas blog.
Apart from the stamps and dies, Altenew will be releasing SIX shades of embossing powders!


Lets get on with the projects.

First card using the Enchanted Iris Stamp Set.


Altenew Enchanted Iris stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
I have used Woodgrain White cardstock for my card front.
I stamped the flowers and leaves with Versamark and used the new and gorgeous Golden Peach embossing powder to heat emboss them.

Altenew Enchanted Iris stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Isn't it just beautiful?
You have to see this in real life, the embossing powder is gorgeous! It has a peach tinted sheen.

Altenew Enchanted Iris stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I used Altenew Crisp Inks in Warm Sunshine, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, Cosmic Berry, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet as my watercolours for the flowers.
I also added some hard lines with colour pencils.
The leaves were watercoloured with Bamboo, Parrot and Moss Crisp Inks.
The panel that the flowers are placed on is inked using Mountain Mist Crisp Ink.
I have used Warm Sunshine Crisp Ink as watercolour to add splatters to my background.


Altenew Enchanted Iris stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0


On to the next card, this one uses Halftone Hearts.


Altenew Halftone Hearts stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

This is such a simple card and it came together so quickly!
I stamped different sizes of hearts using Purple Wine, Lavender Fields, Autumn Blaze, Coral Berry, Volcano Lake, Parrot and Warm Sun Shine Crisp Inks.

Altenew Halftone Hearts stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I stamped the "Hugs & Kisses" directly over the hearts and then added a bit of glossy accent on it.
You can even use the coordinating die to diecut the sentiment and pop it up. That was my plan initially but I didnt have the dies when I made this card but now I do and I will be making more of these to send out to my blog buddies. Oh and speaking of buddies...


Next up, Crafty Friends.


LOOK at the number of AWESOME sentiments on this one!!!
Perfect for your crafty friends (pun intended)

Altenew Crafty Friends stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
I heat embossed one of the larger sentiments using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
I masked off the floral design on the stamp and replaced it with the cute envelope stamp.
I watercoloured my background with Distress Stains using four colours, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemon and a bit of Mustard Seed.
I heat embossed another sentiment on a strip of black cardstock, layered it over some black and white washi tape and popped it on my card front.

Altenew Crafty Friends stamp set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Now on to my last card for today featuring the Mosaic Dome die set.
Altenew Ramdan Greetingd stamp set + Mosaic Dome die set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Ramadan is just around the corner and I thought this die was perfect for Ramadan/Eid cards.
I kept the card really clean and simple, just added a bit of gold border with a marker.

Altenew Ramdan Greetingd stamp set + Mosaic Dome die set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I made a shaker card and did a bit of inlaid diecutting. 

Altenew Ramdan Greetingd stamp set + Mosaic Dome die set, card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I used the sentiments from Ramadan Greeting Stamp Set.
Heat embossed them in Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.
