Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway


Hello friends!
You are at the last stop on Day 2 of Altenew August Release Blog Hop.
You must be here from Kimberly Crawford's blog.
Apart from the stamps and dies, Altenew is also releasing storage pouches this month which are absolutely brilliant! There are nothing like the ones I have and believe me I have tried a lot of storage pockets. These are the best.
I have SIX cards to share with you so without further ado lets get started.

Altenew Striped Leaves Cover Die | More Than Words Stamp Set. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I chose to make a simple yet elegant card which would work for both sexes in black, gold and offwhite.

I added a bit of foil onto my black pieces of die cut so that they don't stand out a lot.
This is one of my favourite among all the cards I made for this release.

Altenew Charmed Stamp Set + Artist Markers. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

This is a beautiful stamp set. I stamped the floral stamp repeatedly onto Sea Glass cardstock and heat embossed it using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
I coloured in the flowers and leaves using the entire blue range of the artist markers and coloured the flower centers with black artist marker.

Altenew Sweet Friend Stamp & Die Set and Amazing You stamp set watercoloured by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
Products: Sweet Friend Stamp and Die Set

I heat embossed the frame twice and several flowers from the Amazing You stamp set.
I layered the floral part of the frame and added flowers from the Amazing You stamp set to continue the floral design.

Altenew Eid Mubarak die and Eid-ul-Adha stamp set. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

For my background I used several distress inks and then stamped an image from Eid-ul-Adha stamp set with versamark ink. I used the Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder to emboss it.
The Eid Mubarak die has been die cut from Gold Foil cardstock.

Altenew Point It Out stamp set | Speech Bubbles stamp set. Card byErum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

This is a fun card! I used Point It Out and Speech Bubbles to form a text.
Inks used; Coral Berry, Volcano Lake, Orange Cream, Parrot and Maple Yellow.

Altenew  Halftone Hearts Nesting Diet Set | Point It out | Circled Sentiments | Basic Borders. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
Inks: Ruby RedParrot

For my background I did something I have previously done on a layout. Here I drew some horizontal lines and used Basic Borders stamp set to build my design.
After that I took out a couple of elements from the New Day card kit and arranged all the pieces in  a collage style.

Erum I love your cards
I really am happy to see Eid cards and new release of Eid Mubarak die. Just in time for Eid.
Thanks for sharing.
As being a revert. I wanted for my kids to enjoy all the lights and festive feeling at the time they were
Young I had to hand draw every card for there teachers. And I made my own carved stamps the say Eid Mubarak. And islamic art.
I carved with a exacto knife. Still use them same stamps I carved today but am happy to have more options.
I made light up decorations with wood and a drill and Christmas lights and gold paint with glitter.
Have a blessed day sister.
And Eid Mubarak.
Kimberly

That first card! Oh. Wow. That may be the cleanest, classiest card I've ever seen. I love the way you used just the two leaves - most cards I've seen made with that die use all the leaves, which is lovely, but you got a great effect here with just the two and those striking metallics.
