Project Inspiration:

I have a few projects to share with you. So let's get started.

07122021 Altenew Craft You Life Seasonal Blooms 5wm

I started by heat embossing the image on teal cardstock in Antique Gold Embossing Powder. Next, through the coordinating stencils, apply Sapphire, Azurite, and Dark Night Dye Inks. Once done, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the image. Then I altered the die-cut a little to split it into two parts.

On purple card front, I added gold paint splatters from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set. Then adehered the two pieces of die-cuts onto either corner with foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Gold Glitter Cardstock and die-cut the word “hello”. To complete the look, I adhered Antique Gold Sequins.

For the card above, I used a technique I have shared previously in one of my videos. To achieve this look, all you need is a Navy Cardstock and the Greeen Fields Mixed Media Pigment Inks!

I have not yet tried it with the Red Cosmos Mixed Media Inks, but you should definitely give it a go! But this color combination looks so good in person! This card came together rather quickly. I ran the Navy Cardstock through the die-cutting mchine and then swiped the inks. Do check the video to find HOW to do this to achieve the perfect look. I added a strip of watercolored cardstock, using the same inks. And finished it off with a sentiment die-cut out of the Green Glitter Cardstock.

One of my favourites! This was going to the bin. Let's first get to how I created it. I swiped Jet Black Mixed Media Dye Ink onto the raised portions of the 3D embossing folder in the project kit. Then I placed my cardstock over it and ran it through the die-cutting machine to get a letterpress design. It looked nice, fabric kind… but was missing something. So, I cut it out and set it aside.

I used a white gel pen and with a very light/gentle hand I drew a random grid like pattern. I would have preferred a stamp but I dont't have one like this from Altenew nor do I have a good white ink. So I drew it. I think it turned out great! I added white splatters to this then adered the cut out letterpress design with foam tape. To finish, I adhered a white die-cut sentiment “hi”.

Obviously, there had to be a watercolor project :) I kept it really simple. No over coloring this time, no dramatic backgrounds. I let the stamp shine in all its glory! And I like the pretty look. Though, I positioned my sentiment a tad lower but dropped the stamp block from one end… so had to gently place it from the other end too!

I wanted the sentiment to be a tad lower. Anyway, if you would like to see how I colored this panel, please watch the video below or head over to YouTube.

I hope you liked the projects I shared with you. I had so many ideas, you guys! BUT so little time ;)

Carrie July 12, 2021 - 1:22 PM

I tried to subscribe to your monthly kit and get the Seasonal Blooms set but it was sold out before I even read your email. Might you consider a second run of this set for those who missed out? How disappointing and frustrating to find your kit sold out before I even received your email about it. I didn’t even finish Jennifer’s video before I knew I wanted it, clicked over to order only to get the message that it wasn’t available.

Carol Owens July 12, 2021 - 1:23 PM

I like the idea of the 4-in-1 card kit. I have shaky hands which makes using alcohol markers a problem. The stencils make it so easy to color in items and the stamps outlines make it perfect. I just started using the embossing folders and I really like how they make the cards look so interesting.

LiCous July 12, 2021 - 1:33 PM

Your cards are beautiful as always Erum. I love the variety!

Robin Ridpath July 12, 2021 - 1:33 PM

Gorgeous cards Erum! I love this kit!

Donna Kowalski July 12, 2021 - 2:39 PM

Beautiful cards.

Angie L July 12, 2021 - 2:45 PM

This stamp set is one of the loveliest I have seen. The colors you have used make it bold and sunny, but, I can also seeing it colored with softer colors to make a sympathy card. Like a very famous fast food restaurant says, “Hmm, Hmm, Hmm, Hm, I’m loving it!”

Cathy Morris July 12, 2021 - 2:51 PM

Gorgeous & versatile set! Love this combo of flowers. Your blue cards are particularly pleasing to me. Thanks

Linda BL July 12, 2021 - 2:54 PM
