Cozy Winter Wishes

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today to starts off your week with a project for The Ton.

I am currently swimming on a sea of Chritmas/holiday cards as Caring Hearts Card Drive just finished and my team of volunteers and I are sorting through the hundreds of packages that came in and packing them for the various nursing home.

So, I don’t have a bunch of time for crafting at the moment, but I did manage to play a bit last night.

This was my first time to finally try out the Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die Bundle. I just love how pretty they are!

To start, I ran the 1st die on a piece of white cardstock and then inked it up with distress oxide inks. Then adhere the piece to the card base. Next, I ran the same dies on a piece of Glossy Adhesive Glitter Paper in Fine Silver.

And, here comes the fun or not so fun, LOL, depends on your level of patience. Adhere the silver snowflake stickers to all  the open snowflake space on the card base. Of course, I couldn’t manage to do the smallest dots. Those I filled with Nuvo enamel dots.

IMG2779.1
Next, while waiting for the enamel dots to dry, I worked on the sentiment. I used the sentiment from Cozy Poinsettia set on a piece of vellum and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. Wrap it around the card.

Now, I could just stop here, but I feel it’s missing something. So, I decided to layered a couple of the snowflakes. This time I die cut the snowflake from dies number 2 from the bundle. It has different shape of snowflake. I die cut once on a piece of cardstock and then again from the adhesive glitter paper  and layered them.

I did this because I didn’t want to just layer the silver snowflake on top one another flat. I want to adhere it with foam tape to make it pop up a bit more, thus I need to make it a bit sturdy.

IMG2779.3
Yep, there’s totally lots of sparkles and glitters on this card!! After all it’s the season to be festive, right?

Well peeps, we have pretty chilly days in Houston, so my winter card is totally reflecting the weather here. LOL, I am a wimp when it comes to cold weather. Anything below 50 and I am bundled up!! That’s all from me today.

Hope your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers…..

Winter Greeting Cards

Hello and happy Friday, everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of winter greeting cards. Christmas season is just around the corner and we all need some winter greeting cards, right 🙂 !

The first card is a shaker card made using Wonderland Print Bundle from our Fall 2018 Release. Using the coordinating die it was quite easy to make a shaker which is framed with the Christmas wreath border!

TT1109 1 1 WM

To start off I stamped the wreath from Wonderland Print Bundle in Hollywood Star and Crystal Pewter. I inked up the leave layer in green first and wiped it off before stamping to give some green tone to the gray of Crystal Pewter color. The last layer was silver heat embossed. I then cut the wreath using the coordinating die. I cut the wreath shape from some pink fun foam to make the shaker wall.

TT1109 1 CU1 WM

The background with the sentiment was created on some white cardstock. I stamped a small solo poinsettia image from Wonderland Print Bundle in Crystal Pewter several times. I stamped the sentiment (TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY) also from Wonderland Print stamp set in Noir and heat embossed it using Extreme Peacock embossing powder. To give the sentiment more dimension and shine I clear heat embossed the sentiment two more times (It’s hard to capture in a picture though.). Hope you could see the glitter and shine on the letters :)!

Tt1109 1 CU2 WM new.jpg

As I wanted a pink cardbase I blended Hollywood Star on the background using a Clarity stencil Brush . To make the poinsettia more subtle I colored them over with a white pencil, and cut the panel using coordinating die.

TT1109 1 CU3 WM

I assembled the shaker elements together on the background by adding beads and sequins from I Dream in Peach and Wintergreen Frost Couture Mix. I added a few score lines on the middle of the cardbase and adhered the shaker on it.

The second card is featuring Cardinal Friends set from Fall 2018 Release.  I had a blast coloring the images on this card!!!

TT1109 2 2 WM

I stamped the cardinal and the branch on some beige cardstock in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake. The berries were stamped on a A2 panel of the same beige cardstock as shown in the picture as the background for the cardinal.

TT1109 2 CU3 WM

I then colored all the images using Prismacolor colored pencils and cut the cardinal and the branch using coordinating dies. The background panel was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle die. The sentiment from Cardinal Friends was gold heat embossed on the background panel. I foam mounted the panel on a white cardbase and added the cardinal and the branch using some foam tapes. To finish off I added three Medallion Gold sequins.

TT1109 2 4 WM

I really love how this card turned out :)!

That’s it from me today! Hope I could inspire you with my cards!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

TaeEun

You are amazing in every way possible.

Hello Everyone! Anna here with two cards using stamps from The Ton Fall 2018 Release.

SONY DSC

To create the first one, I started by stamping images from Ribbon 3×4 Set (three in blue and three in red) with Cali Blue Dye, Cobalt Breeze, Parisian Blue and Soft Garnet Dye, Red Sangria Dye, Valentine Red Dye. All ribbons were die cut with Ribbon Coordinating Die.

I stamped the Trophy using Couture Color – Citrine Collection and Found Topaz Dye. “The Best Friend” was stamped in Noir. Next, I fussy cut this image.

SONY DSC

I stamped “This award goes to” on the vellum panel with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in Rose Gold.

I adhered all ribbon images onto my white cardstock card base and covered with the vellum panel and, finally, the trophy was attached to my card.

My second card features Certificate of Awesomeness stamp set.

SONY DSC

At first, I stamped floral corner and ribbon onto a white cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them in Rose Gold. I colored floral image with Holbein watercolors. “Happy Birthday” was stamped onto the ribbon in Noir. I die cut all images using Certificate Coordinating Dies.

SONY DSC

Then, I stamped a frame on a kraft card base and heat embossed it in white. I stamped “Certificate of Awesomeness – Awarded to You – This award hereby certifies that you are amazing in every way possible.” in Noir as well and attached all images to my card.

Lastly, I added a few sequins from Coral Necklace Couture Mix to add a touch of sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have a great Monday, friends!

Blizzard Hugs

Hello and happy Halloween everyone!!!  It’s TaeEun here today with two wintery cards made using our new stamp set, Blizzard Hugs and it’s coordinating dies! Of course there is a Halloween card at the end of this post 🙂 !

Blizzard Hugs  has three unique snowflake images in different sizes. The largest one measures approximately 4.25 x 5.25 inches at its widest points. The snowflakes are halo images, not outlined snowflakes. The coordinating dies cut the actual snowflake shapes.

I fell in love with the large snowflake and decided to use it for my cards for today :)!

TT1031 1 2 WM

To start off I’ve created a watercolor washed panel in Purple and blue. I used liquid watercolors and blended Grape Crush and Cobalt Breeze on the panel to make it more vibrant. After the panel was dry, I white heat embossed the largest snowflake on it and cut the matching snowflake using coordinating die.  I used the negative panel for this card.

Tt1031 1 CU1 WM new

To inlay a sparkly snowflake I cut one more snowflake from a white cardstock on which I adhered Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy Fine Silver. The panel with the inlaid snowflake was foam mounted on a white cardbase.

TT1031 1 CU2 WM

To add the sentiment I went with a coordinating die of Holiday Chic Tags set. I cut the fishtail tag from a heavyweight white cardstock and dry embossed the snowflake using the coordinating die on it. I aligned the snowflake on the tag with the one on the front panel. I cut out the part of the snowflake, which is on the tag, from some Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy Fine Silver and adhered it onto the tag. The dry embossed snowflake worked as the guide.

TT1031 1 1 WM

The sentiment is from Blizzard Hugs as well. I silver heat embossed it on a strip of vellum and added it on the tag and foam mounted the tag onto the card.

The second card is showcasing the sparkle of the Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Transparent. My absolute favorite glitter paper!!!

Tt1031 2 3 WM new

I cut the Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Transparent  in A2 size and cut the snowflake from it.  I adhered the glittery adhesive snowflake on the snowflake I’ve gotten from the first card. And the negative die cut of the adhesive paper was adhered on a A2 sized white cardstock.

TT1031 2 CU1 WM

I cut one more snowflake from a light blue fun foam to raise the snowflake from the front panel. I then assembled the card together.

TT1031 2 CU2 WM

The sentiment was stamped in ombre using Grape Crush and Cobalt Breeze on a strip of white cardstock. I adhered Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Transparent  on it, matted it with Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Silver. I hope you could see the sparkle on this card!!!

TT1031 all

So you’ve seen two cards I made using positive and negative die cut snowflakes! Hope you liked the frosty holiday cards!

As I couldn’t let you go without a Halloween card today, I made one for you :)!

TT1031 H 1 WM

I transformed a bear from Honey Bears set into a witch. The cape and witch hat were hand drawn. I stamped a pumpkin from Thankful Cornucopia set as a Jack o’lantern. The images were stamped in Caviar Hybrid ink to color using Copic markers. I then fussy cut the witch bear and set it aside.

TT1031 H CU2 WM

The letters for halloween were cut using Bold General Greeting Word Plate dies, once from white cardstock and once from purple fun foam. I blended Coraline Hybrid ink on the bottom of each letter and adhered it on the purple fun foam die cut. As the letters were together longer than A2 size, I made a 4′ x 6′ card.

TT1031 H CU5 WM

I cut a smaller white panel, blended Lemon Drop and Coraline Hybrid ink where the Jack o’lantern would be and foam mounted the panel on the cardbase. I added a purple glitter tape and adhered the die cut letters on the bottom of the front panel.  The witch was also foam mounted. The “happy” from Basic Labels set was stamped in Coraline Hybrid ink.  To finish off the card I added Glossy Accents on the pumpkin and on the heart of the bear’s chest and scattered some sequins from Valentine Frosting, Flamenco Sunset Couture Mix and Lemon Chiffon sequins mix.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!

Wishing you all a fun and crafty day!

Hugs,

TaeEun

Cardinal Friends

Hi there!! Happy hump day!! Brenda here with you today!! I hope you are having a great week!! I was away last week, so I’m trying to get caught up…whew!!!

I absolutely adore the Cardinal Friends set & couldn’t wait to ink it up and get coloring!! Hopefully, you  have some of the new Fall Release in your hot little hands!

Cardinal-Friends-1

I began by stamping the cardinal, large branch and several of the holly branches from the Cardinal Friends stamp set onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink. I used Copic markers to color all of the images before cutting them out with the Coordinating Dies. I chose a blue cardstock for my background and splattered white paint onto it. The two largest dies from the Double Stitched Rectangle (Lg) Dies were used to cut a frame from white cardstock. Once the paint splatters were dry on the blue background, I stamped the sentiment, also from Cardinal Friends, with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in white. Next, I adhered the frame, large branch and cardinal with dimensional adhesive. I adhered the holly branches around my cardinal, directly to the background panel. Lastly, I added some Nuvo Glitter Accents in Fresh Snowfall to the holly berries.

Cardinal-Friends-2

Cardinal-Friends-3

That’s it for me today!! Have you started on your holiday cards yet? I usually mass produce about 50 cards for friends & family…I’ll be sure to share when I start on them!!
