Altenew December 2018 Markers/Embellishments Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi guys and welcome!

Today I am so excited to take part in Altenew’s December release blog hop! If you arrived here from Kymona, you are in the right spot. There is a full list of all the stops at the bottom of this post, in case you want to go back and look at someone’s projects again or if you get lost.

I have made two cards using the new Set E markers, which round out my collection of Artist Markers. I have been waiting for the greens, Tropical Forest, in this set for ages as they are my fave greens in the Oval Inks collection. *insert squeaks and all the heart eye emojis here* Now I just need the Primary Color set and I’m complete! Well, apart from all the Artist Markers refills of course. That darn FullSetSyndrome is a real pickle at times!

My first card, and I’ve made two of the same, is done in what’s become a bit of a signature look for me, with the Artist Markers: A bold background made by simply drawing thick lines in each colour and blending them in. The inspiration for the colour scheme is the changing colours of leaves in the autumn, all those vibrant reds, oranges, yellows and golden brown.

In the past I have sometimes done this directly on a card base but this time I used a pre-cut card panel. It does look a lot cleaner without the ink bleeding through on the inside of the card.

That’s all the “colouring” done for card no1 and I use that term loosely here as it is quite simply fool-proof. No blending, shading or even staying within the lines are required for this sort of colouring. Just draw the marker from one side to the other, to create the thickness of the selection you want and then move on to the next shade. Easy peasy!

The stamp set I have used for both cards is Leaf Canopy, it’s fast become a firm fave in my Altenew stash. I find it very versatile and lovely to colour with all sorts of different mediums.

After dusting my panel with an anti-static tool, I stamped the solid images from the top right corner all the way down to the bottom left corner, with VersaMark ink. The embossing powder I used is Copper and it complements the colour in the background beautifully. It’s rich and gorgeous!

To finish the card off, I adhered it to a card base and added a few sentiments from the Leaf Canopy stamp set.

These are also heat embossed with Copper, for a cohesive look. A very generous smattering of matte black sequins were the final touch.

My second card is a mixture of techniques: no-line colouring, emboss resist, ink blending, spot light look and eclipse….

To begin with, I stamped the outline image from Leaf Canopy in Bamboo ink on a panel. This I coloured in using Set E, both the green and orange Artist Markers. Once all coloured in, I stamped the solid image on top in VersaMark and heat clear embossing powder over it.

The clear embossing powder protects the colouring without hiding any of it. In fact, I think it highlights it.

With a blending brush, I picked out some Oval Ink pads and blended a soft blue around the branch of leaves and then towards the edges of the card, a mix of darker blues. I used inks from the Cool Summer Night family: Sea Glass and Dusk. Turquoise from the Deep Blue Seas family as well as Persian Blue and Sapphire from the Glacier Caves family were used too.

To finish off the background, I splattered first some water drops on it. These I dabbed off with a piece of kitchen towel. Then I added some gold splatters on it too.

With the diecut ‘You are Loved‘, I cut first one piece out of foam sheet, then another out of brushed gold card stock and finally one out of the background panel. I adhered the background to a card base and then layered up the pieces, foam + gold + top layer, until was all puzzled back together. With that, the card was done!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Please email Altenew at winner@altenew.com with the subject ‘Color Therapy Blog Hop winner from Erica’s blog’ to claim your prize!

On a card base made out of Neenah Classic Crest 110lbs card stock, I used Artist Markers from Set A, Set B and Set C to make a colourful background.

82B7C8FA-513C-4B8F-AC13-A976EDADE647

I simply drew the markers back and forth to create a rainbow like look, not worrying too much about blending the colours together or making it too perfect. The main aim was to add lots of colour!

On black card stock I stamped several of the sentiments from the aptly named stamp set Crafty Friends, with VersaMark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I trimmed down each strip and added them to the card with foam tape.

Friendship card with Altenew Build-a-Flower Gardenia

Hello, hello!

I’m back home after a fabulous weekend trip to Berlin to meet up with some friends I’ve not seen for almost 2 years. We have walked, talked, eaten and laughed until our bellies hurt! It was a spur of the moment thing, we put the whole trip together in less than 2 weeks and considering we all live in different countries, that’s no small feat! But as two of them are moving out to Canada on a posting in less than a month, this was the only weekend available so it was a case of ‘ok, let’s just do it!’ and I’m so glad we did!

Things are a bit stressful for the two moving, as you can imagine, so today’s card has a friendship theme as a reminder they can always count on me to help them out if need be. Right, before I go and get all soppy and teary because they are moving so bloody far away, I’m gonna get on with the card. This is a sneak peek of my regular Monday blog post over at Butterfly Reflections Ink blog by the way.

I’ve used Altenew’s Build-a-Flower Gardenia set and coloured it in with the red Artist Markers from Set A, which can also be purchased separately. The leaves are stamped with three colours from the Tropical Forest Oval inks set, which can also be found in handy mini cubes if you are short on space in your craft room. The colours I used are Bamboo, Parrot and Olive.

For the background I’ve used a stencil called Sketched Lines and Nuvo Mousse in Spring green.  To read about the whole process and see more photos, head on over to the BRI blog where the whole blog post is.

From today there is also a giveaway going on over at Altenew! Place an order from the Build-A-Flower Collection from 2/26/2018 until 3/2/2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST, and you will automatically be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a big prize! One lucky winner will be chosen to win a prize pack valued at over $120 including one Original MISTI stamping tool, Artist Markers Set C, and Soft Pastel 6 Mini Cube Set. A winner will be announced on March 4th on the Altenew Blogs.

Altenew Build-A-Flower Camellia and Artist Markers ‘hi’ card

Hi guys!

Today’s card is using the fabulous Build-a-Flower Camellia stamp set and Artist Markers SET A from Altenew. I’ve made quite a few cards with this stamp set already, as I do adore it quite a lot, but I hope you will find that this is a bit different from all the previous ones.

AD96A3A3-E748-4565-BE00-B8D229E86F7D

Altenew generously sent me the B and C sets for the blog hop but I bought the A set myself as soon as I was asked because… you know… FFS? Full Set Syndrome? Well, anyway, I have tried several different colour combinations using the markers and inks, to find the one I like the best. I think this one is my current favorite: Flower outline stamped in Paper Bag Dye Ink and Red Cosmos Artist Markers which you can buy separate or as part of SET A.

I coloured the flower in using my favorite technique: flicking. This is when you start at the point where you want the most colour and then simply flick your marker from there outwards or inwards on your image, leaving a slimmer and slimmer colour trail, if that makes sense? I personally find that this is the easiest way to get a very natural look. The great thing about stamping up the outline and colouring that it, is that all the details are easy to find and high-or-low light with your markers. Plus it helps give extra depth to the flower.

26A85ACF-AFD6-4754-B740-58EE00479441

In the middle I use the darkest of the red markers as well as the two darkest yellows from SET B using a dotting technique. I go around the area, dotting the markers in a random pattern and overlapping each other.

D196166B-54F3-43B6-A6D6-86AF90D5108A

When I was happy with the colouring, I used the coordinating die that comes as part of the Build-A-Flower Camellia set. I didn’t like all the white bits around the flower so I got the markers out again and filled in and framed the image. Setting this aside once I was happy, it was time to think leaves. Instead of using the ones that comes with the stamp set, I decided to use the big leaf branch from the Beautiful Day stamp set. Grabbing my Forest Glade Dye Ink and Green Fields Artist Markers (which you get if you buy SET A) I tried out a few combinations and ended up liking the ones where I only used the two lightest of the markers. The darkest green was just too green. Using the Coordinating die I cut them out and set them aside along with the flower whilst I started working on the background.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of green on my cards. Don’t get me wrong, I love green outside and in nature but on my cards… nah, not so much. Which is why it might come as a surprise that I decided to put myself through the crafting grinder and make a green background… Why I do these things to myself, I don’t know. Really, no clue.

Anyway, I got some Simon Say Stamp #120 white card stock out, cut it in half and scored it in the middle to make a card base. Directly on this I drew thick lines of the lightest green marker and then over that, using the next marker in the set, I drew a few lines vertically. I went over these lines with the lightest marker again and then got an idea, which in hindsight was not my best one, using some copic blending solution and a natural sponge tried to create some texture. I got the sponge WAY too wet with the blending solution and it went all over my background!! Instead of making cute little speckles, I only managed to create a big green pond… as the card stock is so thick it didn’t soak up the solution right away I got the darkest green marker out and dotted it in the puddles to add some more colour. After I had mopped up the excess solution with some kitchen roll, I added more dots using the two lightest green markers.

I don’t know how long I worked on this background but it wasn’t getting any better, but as it wasn’t getting worse either, I went ahead and used it anyway. I adhered the flower and the leaves with foam tape to create dimension and layers and to keep it relatively simple sentiment wise I just die cut the word ‘hi’ in shiny gold card stock using the  inline alpha die. These got stuck straight onto the card and with that, the card was done!

Altenew Marker Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

E49D16A8-C832-4DD3-A22D-3135CFB6F03A

Hi and welcome to CaCaCraft!

Today’s post is to celebrate the release of Artist Markers Set B and Set C from the awesome Altenew and I’m so excited to be part of it as a guest designer! I couldn’t quiet believe it when May got in touch and asked if I wanted to join in! Oh YES, that was pretty much a no-brainier and I’ve been floating on a little pink, fluffy cloud ever since! And today is The Day!

You should have arrived here from Therese Calvird but no matter how you got here, WELCOME! If you loose your way along the hop, there is a list at the bottom of this post and you can always go back to the Altenew Card Blog to find your spot again.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Monday, November 27th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog on Wednesday, November 29th.

GIVEAWAY: You can also win a $30 gift voucher to the Altenew shop by leaving a comment right here on my blog post by Tuesday, November 28th! Winner will be randomly chosen and announced very shortly after that so don’t forget to comment for your chance to win!

Now, it’s entirely possible that I got a little bit carried away in all the excitement. I’ve been on a bit of a card making frenzy since all my goodies arrived and I’ve got eight cards for you today. Yes, you read that right. Eight. I will try to keep each description short and sweet but for those of you who know me, you know that I can ramble on for ages and ages with my jibber-jabbering (that’s Erica talk for ‘talking lots’) but please, do hang in there!

Right, let’s not beat around the bush anymore. Let’s dive in: Card number one, two and three all came out of the same idea. I got my blue markers out, that will be SET C, and on an 8.5×11 inches piece of Neenah solar white card stock, I drew thick lines of each colour over and over. I love how alcohol based markers just blend into each other and it’s quite mezermising to watch them getting on paper.

The idea I had was to make a striped back ground for one card and then cut out letters using the Bold Alphabet Die to spell ‘pappa’ (Dad in Swedish) as well as ‘dad’ for my British father-in-law. I really struggle with masculine cards and to be honest, I have absolutely no clue as to why I decided to punish myself by making a few for this blog hop. I do love blue though, and swishing those markers around made me happy like a kid in a candy shop!

Once I was happy with the background piece I cut it down to 4.25×5.25 inches. I wanted a little bit of the black card base I decided to use to peek out on each side of the panel, and I adhered it using foam tape. The Bold Alphabet Die makes a quick job of cutting out the letters I needed, I used shiny gold card stock as well as doubled sided adhesive foam, to raise the letters up and create dimension. The letters were adhered to the card and on a slim strip of black card stock I heat embossed the sentiment ‘You are amazing’ (from the set Amazing You) with the exclamation mark masked off, using Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder . The strip was added to the card with some foam tape and a few matte gold sequins were added with Glossy Accents.

BA218373-D334-4671-9262-D70F7A056859

For card number two I used the Bold Alphabet Die again to cut out another ‘Pappa’. These I added diagonally to a white card base, that I had previously stamped the swirly cloud from the You Are stamp set using Glacier Cave Oval Inks to create a mixed blue look. I also added ‘you are the best’ to the top of the card using Sapphire blue ink.

13F09909-EAED-4A61-8C51-FE694E7A0BA1

To make the blues on the letter pop a bit more I filled them in with Glossy Accents and set aside to dry. Sadly I smudged the bottom cloud a little but decided to leave it as it is, rather than try to fix it. Sometimes you just gotta cut your losses, right? You can see it in the first picture but in the second one, I sneakily put my watermark over the boo-boo.

FF409BEA-617E-4EE4-B699-EB62802B9EF4

Card number three is very similar to card number two, done with the You Are stamp set, except the card base is a light grey and I used Caribbean Sky for one of the clouds and Persian Blue (from the Glacier Cave Dye Inks Set ) for the other one. I also used my markers, at first just the greys (this would be the ones from SET B ) to fill in the clouds a little bit, but it looked too flat so I added some blue too (that would be from SET C)
The ‘dad’ letters for this card were adhered to the card using foam to raise them up and underneath them I added two swirly bits from the You Are stamp set which I had heatembossed on vellum using Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder and cut out using the coordinating dies . These also got a little bit of blue added to them and the card got finished off with a few matte gunmetal grey sequins.

6579E94D-055C-4524-9888-7269D0F9570F

Anyone who knows me knows that I love flowers and not just like ‘like them a lot’, oh no. I L-O-V-E them! I’m a trained florist and although I don’t work these days, I happily would if it meant being around flowers all day. Flower stamps hold a special place in my heart and it would be rather weird if I didn’t use a few for this blog hop, right?? Well, without further ado, here is my next card:

F66E13D8-D507-438B-92F9-62933B29F352

For this card I used Camellia Build-A-Flower stamp set and coordinating die, as well as some leaves from Adore You, Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and Warm Sunshine Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray
I started by spritzing my background panel with Warm Sunshine Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray and then setting that aside to dry whilst working on the flower. My no-line colouring isn’t the best but I really wanted to try it using the Camellia Build-A-Flower stamp set and the yellow markers from SET B. To begin with, I stamped the outline stamp of the flower using Warm Sunshine Oval Ink and then got to work. For the colouring I used a flicking technique with the markers.

Using the coordinating die I cut both the flower out and a piece of foam to raise the flower up on the card and set these aside whilst I carried on working on the background. The leaves I chose to use are from the Adore You set. I used the cut out flower as a guide to place the leaves on the shimmery background panel and then stamped them all using Embossing Ink  and heat embossed them using Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder . I also stamped the sentiment ‘I adore you’ on a strip of vellum and heat embossed that in the same Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.

Putting the card together took no-time at all at this point as all the components were done. I didn’t get the vellum strip completely flat on the card but all in all, I really like how this came out. I will definitely be adding more Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays to my stash!

On my next card I have used the same stamps as the last one, but on this one I stamped the leaves from Adore You in Morning Frost Dye Ink ink first and then filled them in using the grey markers from SET B. Then I placed the card back in the MISTI, sprinkled it with my anti-static powder tool, stamped the leaves with Embossing Ink  and then heatembossed them using Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder. I also added a few little leafy branches using the base layer of the leaves from the Ranunculus Build-A-Flower stamp set with Morning Frost Dye Ink ink.
The sentiment I stamped in Jet Black Dye Ink and then used Crystal Clear Embossing Powder on top to make it stand out a bit better.

CD4715E9-E0D8-4AF3-979B-9DBD74BD3520

The flower itself I stamped up with Coral Berry Dye Ink ink and coloured it in using red markers from SET C as well as some of the darker yellows from for the middle. Instead of going for a smooth look, I used a flicking technique to create lots of highlights and lowlights. This is my favorite way to colour in flowers.
To finish the card off I cut out another bit of foam to raise the flower up from the card base and that was it.

E816B5D0-0825-42BF-81AC-CF22EAF3FE6A

This next card is quite quick, it might not look it but it really is. I spritzed a little Frosty Pink Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray and Coral Berry Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray on a piece of water colour card stock and set aside to dry. You can use your heat gun to speed up the drying process if you are in a hurry.
I stamped up the Camellia Build-A-Flower outline stamp using Coral Berry Oval Ink and then I used the lightest of my red markers from SET C all over the image. With the two darkest markers I added some shading to the petals. This is super easy as you don’t have to figure out where to do it, just use the outlines as a guide and hey, presto!
In the middle I used both the darkest red and the two darkest yellow markers in a dotting fashion to create a natural look.

359A2905-2CA7-431F-BD49-71B523DF5261
I cut out the flower using the coordinating die and quickly assembled the card. I used a card stock in as close to Coral Berry as I could find and trimmed down the spritzed glimmer panel a little bit to make sure it showed on all sides. This is of course added using foam tape. I love that stuff!
Sentiment wise I wanted to keep it simple but effective. I quickly used the purple markers (from SET B) to create an ombré effect on a scrap piece of card stock and then I die cut the word THANKS using This die. I added this to the card with more foam tape to raise it up and that was it!

D18F1412-7B20-48AA-948E-35EF9CCD34D0

This card is done in a similar fashion, only yellow. On a piece of dark grey card stock I spritzed Warm Sunshine Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray and set aside to dry. The flower is done in a no-line colouring technique and I used Warm Sunshine Oval Ink  before colouring it in with the yellow markers from SET B. On this flower I tried blending the colours a bit more than I did on my first yellow card, without loosing the depth and texture of the petals. I definitely need more practice when it comes to this technique.

94E0B4D7-9A91-460A-B991-14B38F44A39D
This one is also a ‘thanks’ card but this time I used shiny gold card stock with the Thanks die  and layered it with a black one to create a shadow. I also stamped and heatembossed ‘You are incredible’ on a slim piece of back card stock using Embossing ink  and Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder . This little strip I added with foam tape to the panel and the whole shebang went on a dark yellow card base.

60646985-38E2-49CF-99D8-46CC90010C66

My last card (and this really is the last one, I promise!) I use the lovely Bamboo Rose stamp set to make a ‘get well’ card. Using my MINI MISTI I stamped two sets of the flowers with Morning Frost Dye Ink and then using the Four Scoops markers from SET C I coloured them in quite loosely. For the leaves I used the green Artist Markers from SET A.These I ordered as soon as I was asked to take part in this blog hop as I have a very serious and chronic case of Full Set Syndrome. It’s awfully contagious and there is no known cure, apart from getting the full set of whatever it is that gave you the FSS to begin with. I’m serious!

When I was happy with the colouring I dusted the pieces of card stock with my anti-static tool, popped them back into the MISTI to be stamped with Embossing Ink and sprinkled with Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder. I melted it with my heat gun and set them aside to cool down a bit before cutting the flowers out using the Coordinating die cut.

63251B50-DA40-448B-8DEC-5269040B003D

For my background I decided to use a couple of green inks (Frayed Leaf Dye ink and Forest Glade Dye Ink) to do some ink blending. I had a bit of a disaster with this though, my first attempt ended up having to be scrapped as I did the ink blending first and no matter how much I dusted it with my anti-static powder tool after, the embossing powder I wanted to use for the sentiment stuck to the entire panel! The only thing I could do what reverse course and start again and this time do the sentiment first, so that’s what I did. I used the same Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder for the sentiment to keep it cohesive. Once that had cooled down I used the inks I had chosen and blended them until I had a nice green background. A spur of the moment decision had me adding a few leaves in Forest Glade Dye Ink on top of the ink blending to frame the sentiment a little bit more.

The die cut flowers I arranged in a rectangular shaped wreath around the sentiment and adhered them to the card using foam tape to raise them up and create that lovely layered look. Once that was done, the whole panel was adhered to a white card base and that was that!

27FFD566-8E8A-48D6-8B79-6F667E86B9ED

Right, if you have made it all the way to this point, you pretty much deserve a standing ovation! I did warn you that I have gone completely mad and made lots of cards due to all the excitement, there was simply no stopping me once I got going… #sorrynotsorry my people!
