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.

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!!

bev p said...

I thought I needed that rose stamp, and now I KNOW it! Your watercolor is so soft and lovely. I have never had the nerve to create a card based primarily on heat embossing (still learning that skill) but yours is gorgeous. If the photos don't do it justice, I can't even imagine what it must really look like. I love the gold sequins as the flower centers. (This stamp is also on my list!) AND...the bold blue with black on the Fathers' Day card is very striking. All in all, you hit this one out of the park! Thanks.
