Altenew September 2018 Stamp/Die Release + GIVEAWAY

Hello everyone and Welcome to the Altenew September 2018 Stamp/Die Release! I'm so excited to join this hop!!! You should have come from amazing May Sukyong Park, but if not please start at the Altenew blog.



For my first card, I used gorgeous Festive Poinsettia stamp set. I white heat embossed a few poinsettias onto watercolor paper and quickly watercolored them with my favorite watercolors.


To finished my card I've added sparkling sequins. 


VIDEO TUTORIAL

A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel.


Thank you so much for watching!



My second card with Festive Poinsettia again. I've stamped the beautiful poinsettia onto watercolor paper using Sand Dunes Altenew ink and watercolored with my favorite watercolors. Then, I die cut the image with coordinating die. 





Then, I watercolored the background with some orange and beige watercolors and once it was dry, I adhered the poinsettia with foam tape onto my panel.





Next, I gold heat embossed the sentiment and finished my card with sparkling sequins. 



For my next card, I stamped the layering berries from Bountiful Branch stamp set onto kraft panel using Altenew inks and colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. 



Next, I white heat embossed some stars from Starry Night stamp set on top of my panel and splattered it with white paint. 



Another one card featuring berries from Bountiful Branch stamp set, again. I stamped the berries with Coral Berry and Forest Glades Altenew inks onto watercolor paper. 



Then, I took my wet paintbrush and went over them with just water to blend them and give them a watercolored look. I die cut the word Joy a few times using Caps Bold Alphabet die set and adhered on top of my panel.


For my last card I used gorgeous poinsettia from Holiday Bow stamp set. I stamped the first layers of the flower and the leaves using Altenew inks and watercolored them with my watercolors. Next, I adding the accents with gold perfect pearls and extra details using Prismacolor pencils. 


I die cutting the images using coordinating dies and andhered with foam tape on top of my watercolored background. At last, I've added clear sequins and drops of Glossy Accent as a final touch.
