Studio Katia December 2017 Release Blog Hop


Studio Katia Blooming Bunch Stamp Set watercoloured with distress inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello everyone!


You must be here from Studio Katia's blog where our lovely Rowena shared her immense talent with you!
I will be featuring Blooming Bunch Stamp Set today.

Studio Katia Blooming Bunch Stamp Set watercoloured with distress inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I love fall colours and this is one of my favourite go to palettes.
I stamped the image onto watercolour paper with Altenew Permanent Black Ink twice.
I cut out the main flower and the second one which is on the right.

I started colouring my uncut image first (the leaves and the plum coloured flower) with ditress inks.
Then I coloured the two flowers I fussy cut earlier.
I then popped them up on different levels to add dimension.
I also added extra leaves from the first cut up image to make a fuller floral spray.

Before adhering the whole bouquet to my one layer base, I added some light colour wash to the background along with some splatters. And stamped the sentiment too.

After I was done, I added my absolutest favourite sequins and confetti in Rainbow colours!
You HAVE to have these two things in your stash. Link to Rainbow Sequins and Rainbow Confetti.

Now for the good part!
I am offering a $20 CAD gift certificate to the Studio Katia store!
Leave a comment here and I will announce the winner on 22nd December.

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Savitlana.

Altenew Build-A-Flower Carnation


Altenew Build-A-Flower Carnation | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello!
You must be here from the Altenew blog.
Altenew has done it yet again! This month's flower is the gorgeous Carnation and whats more fab is that its a full layered stamp. NO colouring required!



Altenew Build-A-Flower Carnation | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I made this card in no time really! I used Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet to create my flower. The leaves were inked with Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades, except for the one in the right. That was done with Forest Glades and Evergreen and looks SO GOOD. 
I was a bit short on time and couldn't repeat the whole stamping process, but I suggest you should definitely go for the latter ink shades if you use this combination for the flower.


Altenew Build-A-Flower Carnation | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used one of the papers from New Day card kit for my background. I think it tones down the bright colours of the flowers.
I heat embossed the flower bunch and added some Rouge ink as watercolour.
I added the sentiment label at the very end because I couldn't decide where to put it!

You should check out both the Altenew Card and Scrapbook blog if you wish to win one of the FOUR gift vouchers we are giving away.

ALSO!
I am giving away $20 gift certificate to Altenew store as well!
Winner will be announced on December 19th.

Have a great day!

Studio Katia: December 2017 Release Day 3 Kobi's Hugs and Kisses


Studio Katia Kobi Hugs coloured with Prismacolors | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello everyone!
It's December Release Preview Week at Studio Katia blog.
I am featuring Kobi's Hugs and Kisses on my card today.



Studio Katia Kobi Hugs coloured with Prismacolors | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I used Dotted Patterns Set 1 to die cut my front red panel. Then used a Tim Holtz stencil to make the "rays".
Next, I stamped Kobi onto watercolour paper with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and coloured him with Prismacolours. After that I die cut the images with a coordinating die.
The most amazing thing is that the die cuts a slit on Kobi's paw, so if you want you can make him hold objects! I think it's quite clever!
I chose to add the bouquet of roses stamp for Kobi.

Studio Katia Kobi Hugs coloured with Prismacolors | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

In the end, I heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock and popped both Kobi and the sentiment label onto the card front using foam tape.
Lastly, I added a few Magic Crystal Hearts. They look divine in person!
All these items will be available on December 15th.
Don't forget to check out my blog then since we will be having a hop and giving away prizes!
Hope you liked my CAS card.

I stamped the leaves using Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades. For the flowers I used Cherry Blossom Crisp Inks, Shades of Purple and Pocketful of Sunshine.

My second card features the newly released Parrot Paradise Die set and Brushed Alphabet dies.

It makes me SO happy that the coordinating dies for Parrot Paradise and Totally Tropical are here!

Altenew Brushed Alpha die set and Parrot Paradise | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started off by making clouds with Ocean Waves Crisp Ink. This colour is beautiful for sky too!

I then stamped my parrot onto Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and coloured him with Artist Markers in Frayed Leaf, Forest Green, Buttercream and Warm Sunshine. For the beak I used Paper Bag Artist Marker. These colours are from Set A and Set B.

Altenew Brushed Alpha die set and Parrot Paradise | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I then Die cut "Fly High" from my new favourite alpha dies, the Brushed Alphas in white and black because I didn't know which colour I should go with.

In the end it all worked out since I used the black ones as an offset to my white alphas.

Now on to the good part!

Guest Designing at Spellbinders - Trio of Cards Using Sunflower Cool Vibes


Hello everyone! I am honoured to be guesting for one of my favourite companies, Spellbinders. Today I have three cards to share with you using just Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low. I will be showing you three ways to use this stamp set.


Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

As you can see I kept the colours same on all three cards so that it doesn’t distract you from the design. Bonus that they look nice in the photo J

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

First and foremost, I have to say how beautiful this stamp set is! The intricate details all stamped perfectly and crisp. I used both stamps from this set several times with Versamark on watercolour paper. I then used Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Then, my most favourite part, I ink smooshed the background using Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. When the background was still a bit wet, I went in to drop some more of the same colours in a few places to add a bit more interest.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

To add a little sparkle I rolled up some silver string, glued it on to my card front. I stamped the sentiment and popped it over the string with foam tape. I really wanted to add yellow enamel dots to my card instead of silver sequins but I ran out of them. I think the enamel dots would have looked so much better here and would’ve complimented the other two cards beautifully.

For my second card, I stamped the Sunflower twice on watercolour paper with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I then watercoloured the petals using Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The flower center was coloured with a variety of yellows and greens from the distress ink family. I do love to watercolour with distress inks, they flow effortlessly. After the images were dry, I fussy cut them out and started working on my card front.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Again, I stamped the Sunflower repeatedly on to watercolour paper with Veramark and heat embossed it with Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder then heat set it. I already knew what the placement of my flowers and stamp would be, keeping that in mind I added grey watercolour to my background with varied concentration. By varied concentration I mean that the grey would appear dark in some places and light in others.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

After my card front was dry, I popped my sunflowers on foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock added a little more foam tape on this label so that it was on a higher level than the flowers.
I played around with the placement of all three elements till I found the perfect position.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I then covered my stamped images and sentiment label with my hand (you can even use a piece of cardstock or do this step before adding the images) and added black and grey paint splatters. In the end I added a few silver sequins for the bling.
Now onto my final card.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This one too has white heat embossed images and watercolouring! I stamped both the images from this stamp set on to watercolour paper with versamark in a way that it would make a corner border. Apart from this I stamped both the images again to add to the opposite corner.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Then I watercoloured the sunflower petals with Peacock Feathers only, the center with Spiced Marmalade and the outer design with Chipped Sapphire. For the smaller medallion, I used a mix of colours. This image reminds of ceramic tiles.
After the images were dry, I fussy cut the design leaving a white border along the design.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and added paint splatters to my card front. I then popped up the two pieces I fussy cut on each corner and added a few sequins.

Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

There you have it! A trio of cards using just one stamp set!
That is all from my side!
