Altenew January Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway


Hello everyone!!!
Welcome to Altenew January Release Blog Hop II!
We are releasing 18 stamp sets, 18 die sets, and 12 inks!

You are here from the talented Eunyoung Lee's place.
If you just happen to stop by please start at the beginning from the Altenew blog.
You can also find the complete hop list at the end of this post.

I made four cards to share with you!
The first two cards feature the Smile More stamp set.


@Altenew Smile More stamp set pencil colored (faber castell classic) by @pr0digy0
I watercoloured the background using distress stains and pencil coloured the flowers using Faber Castell classic pencils.
My card was severely lacking some bling so I added the smallest size sequins I could find as flower centers. Closeup photo below where you can see the colouring detail, a bit of masking I did and the sparkly sequins.

For my second card I went with a more messy, grungy watercolour style.
I am a little bummed that the photo didn't come out right.
I heat embossed my flowers in gold using Ranger Superfine Embossing Powder.
I watercoloured the flowers and leaves using Gansai Tambi watercolours and then fussy cut them.
There is a coordinating die for this stamp set too, I didn't have one but you can get from the store here.

@Altenew Smile More stamp set water colored (Gansai Tambi) by @pr0digy0

I added a bit of gold watercolour to this blue green combination.
I love the two tone watercolouring, you will be seeing more of that in my next post.
It looks super messy but oh-so-gorgeous in person!
Even the background (that looks brown in photo) is gold!

And my final set of cards using the Basic Borders stamp set and the gorgeous silver glitter tape.



@Altenew Superscript and Basic Borders stamp set water colored (Distress Stain) by @pr0digy0

Instead of pulling out a single stamp to make my border, I chose to use the whole stamp set as a background stamp!
Doesn't it look cool?!
I couldn't decide if I wanted to keep the one with white heat embossing or one with black ink so here I am sharing both versions.
I used the  silver glitter tape to make my mat for the watercoloured panels.
These tapes are beautiful and the glitter doesn't come off (there is one in gold too!).
You should definitely get your hands on them.

@Altenew Superscript and Basic Borders stamp set water colored (Distress Stain) by @pr0digy0
For the above card I used "hello" from the Super Script Stamp set and white heat embossed the Basic Borders stamp on watercolour paper.
I watercoloured the background using distress stains.


@Altenew Superscript and Basic Borders stamp set water colored (Distress Stain) by @pr0digy0
For my card above I used Archival ink in Jet Black to stamp my "background" and watercoloured the piece with distress stains.
The word "Friend" is from the Super Script Stamp set, which I heat embossed on black cardstock.

That is all from my side today!
Now on to the good stuff!
*rubs hands together*

A Year In Review Inspiration Challenge


Altenew Beautiful Day stamp watercolored using distress inks

Playing along with Altenew's "A year in review" challenge. I picked Amy's inspiration board (June 2016). I have always loved it and wanted to try it.
Here is my take on it.

Altenew Beautiful Day stamp watercolored using distress inks



Beautiful Day stamp set is watercoloured using distress inks. The stripes on the base are also watercoloured. I fussy cut the flower and added it on a foam tape. 
I added a few diamante to the flowers on the vine for a little bling.
Hope you like it!
hugs,
Erum

Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


Hello everyone!!!!
I am one of the stops today, i.e. the 6th day of  the Advent Calendar Extravaganza by the totally awesome Taheerah Atchia!
So excited and absolutely honoured to be part of this event again!
Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season!
This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!
Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!


It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win!
Today’s prize is generously supplied by Altenew so you’ll definitely want to win!
Simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to taheerah-atchia.com and leave a comment there too! 

I made two cards for this event. Here is my first card:

Altenew Peony Bouquet pencil colored for Advent Calendar with Taheerah Atchia

For both my cards I used Altenew's Peony Bouquet stamp set.
Here I used masking to create a floral border. I coloured the flowers using white Faber Castell classic pencil and a white gel pen.
The word "merry" is cut using Silhouette and I glittered the alphas to add the christmasy touch.

And my next card is a shaker card!

Altenew Peony Bouquet watercolored using distress inks for Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


This one looks a lot like the one I made last year for Advent Calendar Extravaganza but I really wanted to make a typical red and gold Christmas card this time too and followed the inspiration graphic by Altenew. Here I have watercoloured the flowers using distress inks and added black paint splatters to the background.




You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as mine in order to be eligible to win!

Don’t forget to grab the other surprise destinations from Taheerah’s blog and head over to them to leave comments there as well to improve your odds even more!

Merry Christmas!
