Video : Altenew Artist Markers Set D Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Today I share an easy way to combine alcohol markers and heat embossing to celebrate the release of the Artist Markers Set D from Altenew.  If you are hopping along you should have arrived here from KELLY’s incredible Blog.

I have two cards and a video to share with you, starting with this Stained Glass Window.  One of the things that I love about the Artist Markers is that they have a ‘bullet’ tip and by using this I was able to add some simple dotty shading to my image.

I popped it up in a Halftone Square die cut window surrounded by an embossed border using the Fine Frames Cover Die and a sentiment from the Thinking of You Stamp Set.

Next I used the Beautiful Blossoms to stamp a partial background onto some Parchment cardstock.

The images were coloured with the Artist Markers and then embossed, and you can watch the process in the video linked below.  The sentiment is from the BAF: Ranunculus Stamp Set.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed watching you make those Beautiful Blossoms come to life by heat embossing, Therese… it’s not often I watch, then read – but I couldn’t wait to see that neutral gorgeousness! Now. here I am MIND BLOWN over this fabulous grey number – oh, my friend, you do know how to make me want it ALL! xx
    =]

  2. Your cards are absolutely gorgeous! I love the beautiful blossoms image on kraft card stock. These markers are definitely on my wish list and maybe, even this stamp!

  3. Wowza!! I just love both of these cards. Love the background for your first card with the window and the gorgeous coloring and the second is just stunning! Great Colors you’ve chosen to share.

  4. Love your creation today.. just so creative, embossing over alcohol markers.. and I love the effect of the greeting .. I learned so much on your video.. thanks for sharing…

  5. Beautiful cards, love the soft Brown flowers with the white embossing, really stunning and the dry embossed frames around the focal point of the pretty stained glass piece is eye catching design too.

  6. Both of your cards are gorgeous, Therese! Love the dry embossed frame around the image on the first card and the heat embossing over the colored images on the second. thanks for the video!

  7. LOVE both of these cards! I always forget about embossing with dies, but I really want to try it with the fine frames now – I love the effect ❤

  8. The second I saw your finished card I was sold! I am always drawn to the monochromatic style so your choice of browns on kraft was a home run for me. So so gorgeous. I’m also loving the strung out flowers too. A change from Altenews one flower and leaves basic design. But this stamp is more natural with stems and leaves spread out. Maybe we could all get used to the idea of making larger cards to use these larger absolutely stunning stamps.

  9. Both of your cards are beautiful! Love the embossed frame and the stippled coloring on the first card. The colors and white embossing on the second card are so, so pretty. Thanks for sharing the great tips in your video too.

  10. I liked how you used the fine frames die set to emboss on the first card and the “brown” card is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing on the video!

  11. I’ll be back to watch the video later. Your cards are just amazing, Therese! The embossed frames & cut out on the first one are so clever–LOVE that card!

  12. Both are wonderful cards. Again, who would have thought brown on brown could be so lovely??? I do love the stained glass piece – that textured gray framing is very elegant, and gives a very nice contrast to the soft flower centerpiece.

  13. I may have to own that frame you used on the first card. Your second card is just gorgeous! I love cards on kraft cs and your white embossing really sets the flowers off. Thank you!

  14. You are one of my favorite crafty bloggers. These two cards are beautiful and great technique for embossing with alcohol markers. I will definitely try that technique!

  15. I love your cards but those brown florals are just amazing. I never would have thought to do that but the results are just stunning. TFS!

  16. Therese I just love your videos. I like your laugh and you make me laugh as well. Who doesn’t need that? You card is stunning as always. Thanks for sharing you talent!!

  17. Wow.. I. Liked every single detail on your first card.. The different shapes and elements gives this card an extra wow look.. A great brilliant idea for using them all to create a pretty simple card.. Love the earthy lokk in your second card as well.

  18. Another set of beautiful cards and a great video showing how to replicate what you did. Thanks for the inspiration! I am eager to try heat embossing AFTER coloring, as you did. The effect is lovely.

  19. Love both of the cards today! I’m glad that you did so much detailed colouring on the second card before you heat embossed. It was stunning!

  20. Your cards are absolutely gorgeous!! I love the brown ink tones on the Kraft cardstock, and the addition of white heat embossing. Thank you for sharing your process on video. Also love the stippling on your Stained Glass Window card.

  21. Such gorgeous colors! Love your cards Therese, they are very elegant, all the embossing is fantastic! !Thanks for the inspiration and the video, it is always appreciated!

  22. The colours of these markers are divine! I love the colour behind the embossing and the window card, how clever. Thank you for sharing Therese!

  23. I had always assumed I couldn’t use alcohol markers on an embossed image. Thank you for pointing out the way to do it!

  24. Again a lovely card, easy enough to make. The colours look great with the white embossing powder on it. Inspired me to give it a go.

  25. Both cards are fab Therese, thanks for the tips re embossing and alcohol markers…but I particularly like the embossing on your very appealing grey card…BTW, others may have already said, but your ALT linky thingy to the Stained Glass Bundle links instead to a much less appealing Mini Brownstone Stamp & Die Bundle…Dix

  26. So pretty, Therese, as usual. I particularly like the thinking of you one. There’s something about the juxtaposition of the artistic floral coloring with the graphic background. 🙂

  27. WOW! I love both of your cards, especially the one on kraft cardstock! That is absolutely gorgeous and so easy to do! Thanks for the great inspiration!

  28. Therese, both of your cards are amazing, but my favorite is that first one! I so love that background with that beautifully colored flower in the center!! Thanks for making a video showing us how you made the second card!

  29. I absolutely love every card you make. This card is stunning. I even loved it before you embossed it. I want to thank you for sharing your time and talent with us.

  30. Hi Therese, love your videos, great cos from Oz but also love your style too, showcase, these magnificent altenew products so well, don’t own any yet 😆 but still enjoy your skill.

  31. Such different but equally beautiful cards. Love them both for different reasons. The Kraft one in particular is so elegant. The new artist markers look great.
    As usual the video was amazing and fun.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  32. Gorgeous cards, Therese! I had looked at the large flower set and thought how much detail there was. Great way to overcome this issue! Love the simplicity of the first cars with the dotty colouring! Perfect projects to showcase the new colour markers! Thanks so much for sharing the hints and your great inspiration!

  33. Two beautiful cards Therese! Thank you for the video showing the more monochromatic card. A new way to use my stamping platform. Would love to see how you created the stained glass one, maybe in a future video? Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

  34. Both cards are wonderful, Therese! I love the contrast with the brights and grey, and those warm coffee colors on kraft! Fantastic video on heat embossing with alcohol markers!

  35. Such gorgeous cards Therese. I love all of your tips and techniques. Thank you for your inspiration, it is greatly appreciated.

  36. Ooh I love the first card!! Such a creative design and showcase of coloring! The spotlight on the flowers is awesome 🙂

  37. Therese, what can I say that hasn’t been said? Likely nothing, so be prepared to read it yet again. lol
    The first card is lovely. The innovative way you’ve embossed with all those frame dies at once give it an elegance, especially on the dark grey cardstock. The second card is right up my alley! Love it to bits. The elegance of it is outstanding, brown tones on kraft cardstock with white embossing. That was such a good video & thanks for the tip about alcohol inks & heat embossing. I didn’t know that. I have a few a.i. markers, but haven’t used them as they intimidate me.

  38. I am so in love with the Stained Glass Window stamp set! I just adore how you colored it as well as how you used the lovely textured grey to offset the colorful image!!!

  39. Fun video as always. Your beautiful colouring still did show through partly, stunning result. I’m also adoring the pretty soft shades of your other card & that excellent frame. Thank you for inspiring me today.

  40. Wasn’t so sure I was going to like the brown flowers, once you added the white embossing powder? Voila! Instant amazement! And they look so great against the kraft! Like that you kept it simple! Thanks for another wonderful video!

  41. I really love the brown flowers with the contrasting white embossing. I have been wanting to try their markers for the longest time.

  42. Therese, both of your cards are lovely! This new little tulip set is so unique. And, I learned not to mix embossing powder with alcohol markers…I didn’t know that! You’ve showcased Altenew’s new products expertly! 💫💛🎉

  43. These are both lovely, Therese … the first with the dotty detailing is so beautifully and crisply framed … and the natural colours on those beautiful cascading blooms are gorgeous with the white embossing. What a stunner! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  44. Thank you for the video on embossing! Both of your cards are gorgeous, but I’m especially drawn to the neutral toned one😊

  45. Love the inspiration cards. The frames look beautiful in the first card and I like stained glass effect. The second looks so classy. I really love the new set of markers. The brown shades are very exciting.

  46. I learned so many tips from your blog and from the video! I didn’t know that embossing hurt the nibs of our markers, so I’m grateful for that tip. And using the Misti for embossing afterwards is brilliant! Love both cards! Using the attached dies for dry embossing is an excellent touch, too! Thank you for your great designs, Therese!

  47. Beautiful cards, as usual. I have had problems with alcohol markers and embossing and I thought it would not be something I’d be doing after that. But, D’Oh!, I never thought of doing it this way! It’s like a light bulb moment!!! Thanks for you’re great videos, I always learn something!!!

  48. I love both of your cards! The first card is so sophisticated looking. I love the framed look and the stippling on the flowers. Your second card is absolutely beautiful! I am new to making cards and didn’t even know I could heat emboss after coloring. Stunning!

  49. These are so pretty! I really like the embossed paper in that first card. It looks really cool. Your second card had lovely flowers. I really liked it before you embossed it, but the white looks good too. Thanks for all your inspiration!

  50. Both of your cards are lovely! The brown blooms look amazing on the kraft cardstock and the white embossing really brings out the details of the flowers. I always enjoy your tutorials!

  51. Beautiful cards! I love the multiple frames of the first one and the beautiful colors of the second. Lots of inspiration here, thank you.

  52. I’m partial to those brown markers on that parchment paper. Just beautiful! Also really like the dry embossing on the 1st card.

  53. Both cards are gorgeous. I always know I am going to love your cards but today’s cards……wow just WOW! The second card with the white/brown on Kraft is definitely swoooooooon worthy. Thank you for sharing both cards and for the always wonderful inspiration! (mardy14@bellsouth.net)

  54. Very beautiful cards! Love the frame in the first card and the second is so amazing. I love it’s simplicity. Thanks for the inspiration and the video!

  55. Love both cards…the first card because of the diamond frame and the 2nd card with the designs on Kraft colored paper…simple, yet striking!!!

  56. I am behind on my videos but I sure hope that there is one of you doing the monochromatic one on the youTube! These are so spectacular with the framing of the first card and the various sepia tones in the second! Great work, just like always!
