Altenew A Year in Review Blog Hop + Giveaway


HELLO and welcome to A Year In Review Blog Hop hosted by Altenew !!! I'm feeling so honored to be invited to this special event once again for this year. It's hard to believe that it's already time for a review and we have only a few days left from the year of 2018. 

If you've arrived here from Lisa Fonseca's blog, you are right on track. If you're lost on the way and want to start over, please visit Altenew blog.

The lovely friends at Altenew have created this collage for me with 4 best cards I've picked :). Thank you so much!!!


Along with those four projects I chose some more of my cards which I love and/or were loved by many crafty friends.
If you want to see the original post, please click the picture.

Let's get started!

This card was one of the winners at Altenew 2018 February Inspiration Challenge. I colored the flowers and a butterfly from Wild Hibiscus on a gray paper using Prismacolor colored pencils. I've linked a coloring video as well in the original post.


Next up is a card I made for Altenew's 4th Anniversary using Happy Bloom stamp set. I colored the floral border using Altenew Artist Markers


This Sweetest Peas stamp set from June 2018 Release is one of my favorite stamp sets from Altenew. I've made a card in navy, gold and peach color combination.  


Next card was one of my cards featuring Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan set. I watercolored the gold heat embossed Peony Spray and kept the card clean and simple. 


As Altenew released Alcohol Marker Refills I had to use them like alcohol inks. To make this card I colored the gorgeous florals from Crown Bloom and the background using the Alcohol Marker Refills!


Im September I had the pleasure to play with the new Washi tapes by Altenew. This card was my favorite from the projects I made to showcase the new Washi tapes. I used Red Ombre washi tape to cut the roses using Rose Flurries 3D dies. They look gorgeous on the black!


I made next card for Altenew November 2018 Stencil and Ink Spray Release Blog Hop. This card was chosen from many crafty friends who commented on the post as their favorite. I watercolored the floral background created using Floral Art set with Altenew Watercolor Pan set and then covered it with a large glitter butterfly using Flowing Butterfly stencil.


Finally I want to show you this card. The Build-A-Flower Camellia on this were colored using the new Artist Markers set E.  Actually I wanted to place the orange flower over the left bottom corner and make the card up side down with the sentiment on the white clean area. But I didn't like the layout and ended up with this design :).

The Flower Challenge #27 - Use an Older Stamp or Die - Reminder

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a restful weekend! 

Today I have a floral card to share with you. It's time for a reminder post for The Flower Challenge. Our theme for December is Use an Older Stamp or Die



I used an old rubber stamp from Hero Arts, called Daisies. 


I stamped the Daisies three times in black pigment ink and clear heat embossed the images. I watercolored them in a loose way and splattered opaque white ink over the whole panel.


I foam mounted the panel after I cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle die on a gray cardbase. The sentiment was cut from Silver Glitter Adhesive Paper from The Ton using hello word die. I raised the die cut sentiment with three more die cut hello's and adhered it onto the card.  


It was a quick and easy card using an old but pretty floral rubber stamp.

Please stop by The Flower Challenge blog for more inspiration from my lovely team mates!
It would be great if you could find time to play with an older floral stamp or die to join in the fun!

Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs,
TaeEun

Altenew December 2018 Markers/Embellishments Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew December 2018 Markers/Embellishments Release Blog Hop!

If you are coming from Lilith Eeckels' blog you are right on track. If you want to start the hop from the beginning please hop over to the Altenew Card Blog!

Altenew has released two new Artist Markers sets and Colorless Blender along with gorgeous Embellishments for paper crafting! I had the pleasure to play with the Artist Markers Set E and the new Colorless Blender.


I chose a big floral stamp with many petals to showcase the new marker set :)!  Build-A-Flower: Camellia seemed to be perfect for this purpose. 


To do no-line coloring I stamped the third layer of Camellia flower in Sunkissed and the leaves in Bamboo ink on Neenah solar white cardstock. I stamped two more flowers in Limestone on a A2 sized solar white panel to create the monochrome background.


I colored all the images using three color families from Artist Markers Set E. On the orange camellia I needed Y205, C001 from Artist Markers Set B and R335 from Set A too.



I gold heat embossed the sentiment from Build-A-Flower: Camellia on the background panel and adhered it on a white cardbase.


The orange camellia flower and the leaves were cut using coordinating dies and added onto the card. The flower was foam mounted and I glued the leaves flat on the card.


I used the Colorless Blender to blend or soften and brighten the colors and it worked fantastically! 




PRIZES
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 12/12/2018 for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on Sunday, December 16th.

The Flower Challenge #27 - Use an Older Stamp or Die

Hello everyone!!! 

We've arrived already the last month of the year 2018!!! Hard to believe, right?!! 
Hope you all are having warm and cozy December! 

Today I want to share my DT card for The Flower Challenge with you. Our theme for December is 

Use an Older Stamp or Die.


I have to share what my 10 year old son said, as he saw the theme on my calendar.... 
"Mom don't be too hard on yourself!"  :) :) :)  He didn't know what a die is! 

Now to my card :) ! 
I used one of my first stamp sets, Tiger Lily by Penny Black, for my card. 


I stamped the Tiger Lily in Antique Linen DI two times after masking the first one on Ranger watercolor cardstock. To fill the bottom left area I drew a long leaf.


I watercolored the lilies and added soft blue and green color on the background.
The sentiment is also from Penny Black. The stamp is called Happy Wishes. I gold heat embossed it directly on the colored panel.


I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on the cardbsae.


Hope you liked my card! Now it's your turn!  Join in the fun, if you have old floral stamps or dies to which you gave some love a while back! 

Please hop over to The Flower Challenge blog for more inspiration from my lovely team mates! 

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
TaeEun
