Beautiful Bettas

Hi all!!! Brenda, here with you today!!! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!!!

I have a summery card to share with you today featuring the Beautiful Bettas & Coordinating Die set…

I began by stamping each of the fish with several of The Ton’s beautiful ink colors. The largest fish was stamped with Peach Blossom, Coralline & Valentine Red. Cali Blue, Parisian Blue & Azurite were used on the medium fish. The smallest one was stamped in shades of purple…Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms & Grape Crush. After stamping the final color on each fish, the image was sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set, creating some areas that really catch the light. The fish were then cut out with the Coordinating Dies. The seaweed was stamped with Bright Emerald and also cut out with the Coordinating Dies. For the background panel, I chose a pale blueish green cardstock and stamped it with the waves stamp from Mermaid Vibes with Hampton White Pigment Ink. The two largest dies from the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large) were used to create a frame from white cardstock. A couple of pieces of the seaweed were attached flat to the background, while the other seaweed, fish & frames were popped up with foam adhesive. The sentiment, also from Beautiful Bettas, was heat embossed in white onto black cardstock and then fussy cut. Some Mixed Dew Drops create the perfect bubbles. A drop of Onyx Black Nuvo Drops on the eye of the largest fish was the final step!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Have a wonderful week!!!

Hello, everyone and welcome back! For today’s project, I have this vibrant Butterfly Wings (Gold Medallion sequins) thank you card with a surprise popup element inside.

I started off by heat embossing the wings and the butterfly body with our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored the wings using Turquoise Color Bursts. Next I painted the areas surrounding the butterfly using a combination of several Color Bursts (Fuchsia, Tangerine and Orchid).

Once my painting has dried, I used the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle Die collection (Large) to add stitching to the edges of my A2 panel. Next I stamped my banner and sentiment from our Basic Banners set in our Bright Emerald Dye Ink.

Once I popped the banner onto my panel, I adhered the panel onto a side folding A2 base using some strong double sided adhesive.

Next I created my own gold foil cardstock and die cut the intricate popup butterfly wings. I also die cut some solid butterfly wings to add behind the intricate die cuts. For these pieces, I used mint cardstock.  Once I adhered the mint cardstock onto the gold wings, I added some  to the front of my card.

Unicorn Love

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today bringing you Friday inspiration from The Ton.

I spent my 4th of July stamping & coloring since it was a rainy day in Houston. What better way spending rainy day than stamping & coloring, right? Well, that and snuggling with my pups & reading, of course. 🙂

Anyway, I decided to give some love to Lavish Donuts & Unicorns Bundle set, since it’s been a while since I play with this set. And, here’s the result:

IMG4910[1]
I really, really love the way this card turned out. This purple, blue & green color combo is so pretty.

Now, a lot of time when I make my card, I create at random. Sometime, I have plan and sometime I don’t. Or I have plan and then deviate from that plan. Hah!

So, for this card, I started by stamping & heat embossing the ears and the unicorn horn with copper embossing powder. Then, in all honesty, I messed up my card along the way (that’s what happened when you don’t pay attention that there’s ink on your finger and you touch the card you’re working on). I don’t like to waste, so I just die cut the ears & horn using Lavish Unicorn Ears & Horn Bundle dies and adhere it to a new panel.

Stamp & die cut the flowers (love, love the combination of Soft Amethyst & Orchid Crush) and adhere to the card with foam adhesive. Stamped the eyes and the sentiment (I used the I Love You from Coming Up Daisies set) with Caviar ink. Added a bit of eye shadow to the eyelashes with Copic and then add some shimmer to it. After all, unicorn is all glitter and rainbow, right? 😉

IMG7490[1]
Now, this is what happened when you didn’t plan well. After I was done, I looked at the card & thought, oh darn it, the card would look better with some sprinkles from Toned Squares. I can’t remove the horn & the ears since they’re already glued down. So, I decided to strategically cover some area and try to stamped the Toned Squares without messing up the card. Some of the ink didn’t stamp perfectly as I was too nervous when I press down the stamp. No worries, that’s where Copic come handy. I simply fill in the square areas with it. 🙂

I made this card just for my niece who’s been in my mind lately. She’s going through some stuff & I simply want to let her know that I love her & think the world of her. She’s my sunshine & my unicorn. 🙂

Well peeps, that’s all from me on this fine Friday. May your Friday be a great one (after all it’s almost weekend!!). Cheers….

Vera

Video: Independence Day Waves

Hello and welcome back!! I hope everyone is enjoying their Fourth of July. I have a new project and video to celebrate this holiday.

wave pyro.jpg

For my project, I used our ever popular layered Wave and Pyrotechnics stamp sets.

I started off by stamping our three step  Wave using our Blues Dye Ink Layering Collection (Blue Diamond, Cobalt Breeze and Parisian Blue). Then I blended the negative space surrounding the wave using our Sky Blue Dye Ink Layering Collection (Cali Blue, Azurite and Deep Sapphire) and True Navy Dye Ink. For my blending, I used a Clarity stencil brush.

wave pyro2

Once my panel was stamped and blended, I applied my heat gun to the panel to ensure all the ink was dried for embossing. Once the panel was dried, I prepped it with some antistatic powder. Then I stamped several fireworks stamps from our Pyrotechnics set onto the background of the panel with some embossing ink. Then I embossed the images using several glitter embossing powders (Silver Glitter from Zing, Blue Glitter from Wow, Red and Gold Tinsel from Ranger and our Rose Gold Embossing Powder).

wave pyro3

Once my embossing was complete, I used the same silver glitter embossing powder for my banner. Next I stamped the holiday sentiment right into the banner and die cut it using the coordinating die. Next I trimmed about 1/8 of inch from each side of my stamped panel. Lastly, I adhered the panel onto a top folding A2 base and then popped up my sentiment to complete my card.

To celebrate we’re having our first ever discount!

Patriotic Donut

Hello everyone!! It’s Brenda here with you today!! I was going through my stash looking for products that haven’t gotten enough love from me lately & this Lavish Donut Cardbase Die caught my eye!! With tomorrow being the 4th of July, I thought it would be fun to create a donut in patriotic colors!!

How fun is this?? I used the Lavish Donut Cardbase Die, cut from heavyweight cardstock and folded on the score line. I stamped the frosting from Lavish Donuts and Unicorns Bundle in Azurite Ink. The “drizzle”was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with red sparkle embossing powder. The coffee cup, from the Tea Party Dies, was cut from red cardstock. Using the Lavish Donut Cardbase Die, I cut only the heart from blue glitter paper. The sentiment, also from the Lavish Donuts Unicorns Bundle was heat embossed in white onto vellum and then fussy cut. Some small red hearts from the Sugar Cookie Couture Mix add some “sprinkles” to the donut.

That’s it for me today!! Wishing you all a safe and happy Independence Day!!!
