Spellbinders February 13th 2018 Blog Hop



Hello friends!
You must be here from Debi's blog.
Welcome to Spellbinders February 13th Blog Hop. Today we are featuring the following two collections:

Unfortunately I hurt my hand and cant die cut a lot so I was only able to make a simple card.

Spellbinders  Shapeabilities Tiara Rondelle Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken and  Shapeabilities Layered Happily Ever After Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The pattern paper is from DCWV from their Gold & White Paper Stack.

I used the couple die a bit differently. I snipped off the frame they were attached to after die cutting and used them as a separate piece. I also offset them with gold to complement the gold frame and pattern paper.

Here s a closer view of the couple.

I added some pearls on the ornate gold frame and I think they look perfect.
That is all from my side. Now your next stop is Amanda Korotkova.

Altenew: Build-A-Flower Peony Blossom


Hello friends♥
Today Altenew released February's Build-A-Flower which is Peony Blossom!
It is a beautiful flower with layered images to add "crinkle" or "folds" in your stamped flower without colouring it in.

Before I start, I have to share this with you. My dad saw this card on my work table and I think he touched it to see if it was die cut or one layer because he couldnt figure it out. When I returned to the room, he was like "you made this on one layer, its not dimensional? I had to touch it to see what's going on there!". I can't tell you what a compliment this is, coming from my father! He is very critical of my work so this is MAJOR. I was beaming! STILL am!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I used Altenew Crest Solar White cardstock for my front panel. I stamped the largest flower in Coral Bliss Crisp Ink for the first layer and then stamped the second layer in Vineyard Berry. I then made a mask of the largest flower to add my second medium flower. I stamped this second flower in the same colours.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Next, I made a mask for the medium sized flowers and added leaves. These were stamped in Minty Mint, Just Green and Hunter Green.
After my image was stamped I added details with prismacolor pencils and softened the sharp lines a bit.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I have a photo on my instagram that shows the before and after of the stamped image before and after adding pencil details. For those of you who find colouring a daunting task, this is the way to go. You already have a stamped image showing you where the shadows and highlight are so it becomes easy.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

In the end I tried adding a bit of shadow to my image using Morning Frost Artist Marker but the marker slipped out of my hand and left a mess on my card front. I coloured the whole panel because of this. I made sure my colouring lines were visible in order to hide the mess the marker left.
Then I added black paint splatters to hide the mess even more. It was after this step that I couldn't see the "path of destruction". 
I then stamped the sentiment from Forever and Always stamp set and added Studio Katia crystals to my flowers as centers and also their clear dew drops.

This is what Altenew has to say for Peony Blossom:

"Our Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom set includes 1 stamp set (15 images) and 1 coordinating die set (8 dies).
The Peony Blossom Build-A-Flower has a slightly different approach than our conventional Build-A-Flower sets. The stamp set has three five-petal flowers accompanied by a shading layer and a center layer. You may use these flowers as is, or layer them to create dimension. The matching dies will cut the flowers all the way to the edge without leaving a border. This will help in shaping the petals to the desired dimension when using a shaping tool (don't have a shaping tool? You can use the domed end of a pen or pencil!). We included an additional flower die and stamen dies to help you create realistic blooms! Even though we named the set 'Peony Blossom' since the petals were loosely based on Peony petals, you can let your imagination run wild and create different types of flowers! We can't wait to see what you come up with!"



Prizes:
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. Three winners will be announced on the Card Blog, and other three winners will be announced on the Scrapbook Blog on 2/18/2018.

Additional Prize:
I will be drawing a winner from all the comments left here by February 16th. Winner will be announced on February 17th.

Lets start with the projects. First up is Crafty Life.

Altenew Crafty Life Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

To make my background I used watercolours that aren't released yet. Sorry guys, I made this a while back and we thought the palette would be out by now.

Altenew Crafty Life Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I heat embossed one of the sentiments with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
Also, I used the dies to cut my envelopes and "lets craft together".

Next is the gorgeous Ornamental Flower.

This is beyond beautiful. The stamp set has such fine details and it looks gorgeous after being stamped.

I chose to stick with the Rock Collection for the colours. I have also used black ink.

For this card, I used the large image plus a few tiny single stamps from this set to build my floral border. I then cut it out and popped it on my card front.

Pinkfresh Fleur1 | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
Before popping up my floral border onto the card front, I added some watercolour and dripping effect. I also stamped my sentiment.

I stamped some flowers again, coloured them, fussy cut them out and popped them on to the panel for dimension and interest.
