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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Heat embossed them in Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.

Stamped Around The World + GIVEAWAY from Tonic Studios


Altenew Bamboo Roses coloured using Artist Markers by Erum Tasneem - pr0digy0

Hello friends!
Hope you guys are doing well.
Today I am participating in a special event hosted by my awesome friend Maria Sabina, you may know her as Lollyrot.

Here is a little word from Maria herself.

"The point of the ‘’Stamped around the world’’ is to bring a smile and to make people feel a bit special by writing a few positive words. Not only that the card is handmade and gets to travel to so many countries and to so many people, but a part of you will travel too. It is important to put technology aside and go back to the old days when words were really appreciated by writing a letter or a note. You can find all the details HERE"


A big thank you to Tonic Studios for sponsoring our hop.
Please leave a comment on each stop on the hop for a chance to win a goody bag from Tonic Studios.
I have added the complete hop list at the end of this post.
Winner will be announced on May 27th over at Maria's blog Lollyrot Scrapbooking.


Altenew Bamboo Roses coloured using Artist Markers by Erum Tasneem - pr0digy0

For my one layer card I used Altenew's Bamboo Roses stamp set.
I coloured the stamps with Altenew Artist Markers and the butterfly was coloured with Crayola pip squeaks.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white. This is the only other dimensional thing apart from the sequins. Wanted to keep this as mail friendly as possible.

Dont forget to leave a comment on every stop of the hop, it's a small list I know you can do it!

Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway


Cards by Erum Tasneem featuring Altenew Penned Rose, Best Mom and Best Dad Stamp Sets. @pr0digy0

Hello everyone!
Welcome to the Celebrating Parents Blog Hop!
You must be here from the amazingly talented Kristina Pokazanieva blog. If not then you can begin at the Altenew blog.


We are sending out cards to the elderly that live in nursing homes or shelters to let them know we care.
You can read up all about the Card Drive HERE.
It's an awesome cause!!


20% of the profits earned from these stamp sets (Best Dad, Best Mom, Penned Rose and Extra Special) by 6/18/2017 will be donated to Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need.


Let's start with the cards!

Altenew Best Dad stamp set pencil coloured plus watercoloured background. Card by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0

This is my favourite card! LOOK at that blue and all the awesome images!
I used the Best Dad stamp set for my card. All the pieces have been diecut using the coordinating die (thank God I had the dies! )

The images have been coloured using Prismacolors. For the background I used distress stains.
I also added glossy accents to all the "Blue" parts.
Here is another view.

I made another card using the same stamp set.

Altenew Best Dad stamp set and Bold Alphabet die set. Card by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0

For this card I repeatedly stamped the Best Dad mug with versamark and heat embossed it in white.
I then did the smooshing technique. I didn't stop with the smooshing.
I went in again with the distress stains to colour my mugs so that they would stand out more.
This looks super grungy and really fun.

Altenew Best Dad stamp set and Bold Alphabet die set. Card by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0

I diecut the word "DAD" using Bold Alphabet Die Set four times, layered them up and added glossy accents to it. I also diecut some stars that are part of this stamp set.

Now it's mum's turn! 

Most of you know by now I do love to add silver and gold any chance I get and black and gold combination is my go to choice for everything!
So I decided to make a black & gold card for a classy mum.

Altenew Best Mom stamp set gold heat embossed plus Bold Alphabet die set. Card by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0

I repeatedly stamped the Best Mom floral vine to build my background in versamark and gold heat embossed it.
This looks SO GOOD in person, it didnt come out great in photos though.

The "Mum" is die cut out of Bold Alphabet using Gold Mirror cardstock. I layered it four times to make them into chipboard alphas.
The gold glitter border you see is the Glitter Tape.
I added some gold splatters to my card base.

I also added tiny cup sequins as my flower centers!
Can you see them? They look so pretty!

On to my last card for today.

Altenew Penned Rose stamp set watercoloured by Erum Tasneem. @pr0digy0

For my last mum's card I heat embossed the Penned Rose stamp set on watercolour paper.
After watercolouring I die cut all the pieces using the coordinating die for this set.
For my front panel I added some black paint splatters and stamped my sentiment before placing the floral arrangement.

I have popped up all the die cut pieces on different levels to add interest and more dimension.
The thin silver glitter border you see is the Glitter Tape.

That's all!!

Build-A-Flower: Aster Release



Hello and welcome to our second Build-A-Flower release!
Our flower of the month is Aster and here is what it looks like.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Aster
Click on the photo to take you to the store!

As you all know by now that Altenew will be releasing a flower stamp plus die combo every month on the 15th. This will be available as a combo only and not separately.
Here is what I came up with.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Aster. Card by Erum Tasneem (@pr0digy0)

For my first card, I did a bit of masking and stamped the flower and leaves to build a border.
I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed it in white.
The cardstock I used is close to Sea Glass and is one from the New Day Card Kit.

I used Artist Markers Set A to colour my flowers and leaves.
Started off with Sea Glass and then to add more depth I coloured in with Dusk Artist Marker.
I then went back in with Spica glitter pen to add tons of sparkle.
I don't know if you can see it, but here is a closeup.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Aster. Card by Erum Tasneem (@pr0digy0)

On to my second card which again is fairly simple.
I heat embossed the flowers and leaves in white again on watercolour paper.
I watercoloured the leaves and flowers very loosely.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Aster. Card by Erum Tasneem (@pr0digy0)

After the images were dry I diecut them and placed them on a watercoloured panel.
I stuck all images on different levels using foam tape.
Stamped the sentiment on a plain white strip and popped it over the cluster.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Aster. Card by Erum Tasneem (@pr0digy0)

For my final card I went for a more grungy, loose watercolour look.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Aster. Card by Erum Tasneem (@pr0digy0)

I did a bit of masking and stamped my flower on the front panel, heat embossed it in gold.
I added a lot of water to the entire front panel and began dropping different shades of blue watercolour focusing mainly on the flowers but not really worrying if the colour dropped outside the lines too.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Aster. Card by Erum Tasneem (@pr0digy0)

I love the sentiments on this stamp set and I wanted to highlight them, so I picked out one and heat embossed it in gold on black cardstock. I added a thin strip of Gold Glitter Tape to one border.
Added some gold string and popped my sentiment tab over it using foam tape.
I also added some gold splatters to my front panel.

So there you go!
Three different looks using one stamp set.
Please leave a comment to let me know if you liked the cards, it would mean a lot.


Also, don't forget to leave a comment over at the Altenew blog for a chance to win one of the THREE gift certificates they are offering!

See you soon folks!
- Erum
