Birthday Poppy Hugs

Hello, everyone! Anna here sharing a card I made using an image from Poppy Close Up.

I started by coloring the beautiful poppy using my Holbein watercolors. Then, I fussy cut the flower. To make the background, I cut out a white cardstock panel with Convention Coverplate Die. Next, I adhered it on a sand cardstock panel that was cut out with the largest die from Rectangle A2 Nested Dies.

The sentiment from Easy Expressions Birthday stamp set was stamped with Noir. But “hugs” was heat embossed in Glitter Gold. I cut out it with Easy Expressions Birthday Coordinating Die. Lastly, I added a few rhinestones from Crystal Clear Rhinestones to embellish my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Coming Up Poppies Slimline Card

Hello, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a slimline Thanks card. I watercolored the Gorgeous bloom of the Coming Up Poppies set with a twist of a partially inverted coloring. 

To start I stamped the Coming Up Poppies two times on a slimline sized watercolor paper panel in Caviar hybrid ink which is watercolor friendly. Next I cut the panel using a small die from the Slimline Pierced Nested die set

I colored the poppies on the outer piece of the panel in red (Permanent Carmine by Schmincke) and the leaves, stems and buds in olive green. 

I did negative watercoloring on the center piece. For a dramatic contrast I colored the background of it in dark purple (Imperial Purple and Moon Glow by Daniel Smith) and left the flowers uncolored. 

The sentiment is also from the Coming Up Poppies set. I stamped it on the outer piece of the panel in Noir and adhered it on a white slimline cardbase. The central piece was then added using foam tape.  

I finished off the card by adding some Blue Black Opaque Rhinestones.

That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my card!

Thank you for stopping by!

Blooming Shelves

Hi everyone. How’s it going? Vera here. Today, am showcasing Blooming Shelves set. I love this set. Maybe because I feel like it has a modern feel to it & partly because the plants on this set are the kind of plants that I’ve been trying to grow in my backyard. Not very successful I might add. Hah!

Anyhoo…. to start, I stamped the image and sentiment with Caviar ink pad and then colored it with Copic marker. Die cut the image with Blooming Shelves Coordinating dies. Then, I die cut a blank piece of white cardstock a couple more times with the same die to layer it with the colored one. I want to have thickness without using foam adhesive. Before adhering the colored piece to the card base, I stamped some leaves from Urban Jungle set directly on the card base with Matcha ink pad.

I feel like this add a little bit of interest to the background without making it too busy or compete with the main image. Adhere the colored image to the card base.

Finished by adding some Bright Green Opaque Rhinestones. I love the way this card turn out and I hope you do, too. That’s all from me today. May the rest of your week goes smoothly. Cheers.

Jumbo Poinsettia Holiday Card

Happy Monday, friends!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!!

I have a stenciled holiday card to share with you today!!

I began by stenciling the Jumbo Poinsettia Layering Stencil Set with Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink, Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine inks. I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out.

For the background, I blended Caribbean Turquoise and Hot Tourmaline inks onto a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock that was die-cut with the largest die in the Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Nested Die Set. Then I inked the Pine Stencil with Tourmaline Ink and added some sparkly Stickles freehandedly to the pine sprig. Once it was dry, I adhered the poinsettia to the panel.

For the sentiment, I used the Ribbons Holiday Stamp Set. It was also stamped with Caribbean Turquoise and Hot Tourmaline inks, then cut out with the Coordinating Die. “Happy” was stamped with Hot Tourmaline Ink and cut into a narrow strip. The sentiment strip and die-cut were both popped up with foam adhesive. I added some gold Stickles to the center of the poinsettia and Soft Gold Gems for a little more sparkle.

That’ll do it for me today!! Have a great week!!

To embellish the card, I added a few rhinestones from Crystal Clear Rhinestones.

That’s all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Poppies Love

Hi everyone. Vera here with poppies card. I’ll always remember the time I saw poppies for the first time in my life and I was completely mesmerize by it’s beauty. Since then, it has become one of my favorite flowers.

The Ton has several beautiful poppies set, but for today, am playing with Precious Poppies Layering Stencil set. Adding color with just ink blending makes stencil one of my favorite way to make cards nowadays. For the poppies I used Dolled Up, Coralline, Coral Cavern, Matcha and Aspen Cocoa. At first, I ink blending Coralline on the poppies base, followed by Coralline & Coral Cavern, but then am not quite satisfied with the colors, so I went back to the first layer and blend in Dolled Up on top. It’s okay to change your mind and added more color even after you finish the layering. As long as you use color that you know won’t end up looking muddy, of course.

Then die cut the poppies with the coordinating Precious Poppies dies. To make it more stand out, I die cut a plain cardstock twice and layered it up with the colored poppies. For the background, I used my all time favorite background dies, Quilted A2 Coverplate Die. Adhere the panel to card base followed by the poppies. Then for sentiment I used one of the sentiment from Heartfelt Blossoms and finish by adding a couple birdies from Nesting Peonies set.

I love it when I get to combine several sets in one card. It always make me feel accomplished. LOL. Instant gratification. Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s card and I wish you all a wonderful day. Cheers.

Pretty Pansies Background

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a pansy card!

I used the Pretty Pansies Background layering stencil set for this card. This set with a coordinating die was debuted at Summer 2022 Release along with other Pansy stencil set : Bright Pansies Clusters Layering stencils, which I showed at the Summer 2022 Release. The Pretty Pansies Background layering stencil set has four stencil layers and you can create a pansy field in two different color tones.

The ink colors I used to stencil the Pretty Pansies Background layering stencil set are listed below.

Flowers:

Leaves: Meadow

I cut the stenciled panel using the largest die from the Double Pierced Nested Rectangles die set and adhered it on a white cardbase. 

I cut a rectangle frame using the Double Pierced Nested Rectangles die set, ink blended it in Soft Amethyst and foam mounted it on the card slightly tilted. 

I cut the sentiment from some white cardstock using the Script Hugs die two times and stacked them. I added the die cut sentiment using foam adhesives and scattered some Dark Purple Opaque rhinestones to finish off the card. 

That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my card!

Fairest Peony Cluster Thank You Card

Hello, fellow crafters and happy Thursday!!

I have a thank you card to share with you today featuring the Fairest Peony Cluster Layering Stencil Set!! As I mentioned in my last post, I’m trying out some different pink ink combos and it turns out that I love all of them!!

I began by stenciling the Fairest Peony Cluster Stencils onto Bristol smooth cardstock using Orchid Crush, Deep Peony, Pink Derby, Lemon Drop and Spring Salad. Then I fussy cut the cluster.

For the background, I blended the same pink inks onto an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock, starting with the darkest color at the bottom and ending with the lightest at the top. I die-cut the Grid A2 Coverplate Die from white cardstock and adhered it over the blended panel. The cluster of peonies was adhered and the excess was cut from the edges.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Easy Expressions set with Pink Derby and Noir inks, then cut them out with the Coordinating Die. I popped it up onto the panel with foam adhesive. A sprinkling of Deep Pink Gems finishes off the card!

It’s Time to Celebrate – Peony Close Up Stencil

Hello, crafty friends!! I hope your week is off to a great start!! I have a square card to share with you today featuring the Peony Close Up Layering Stencil Set!!

I’ve been trying out some different pink ink combinations on my stenciled cards lately!! For this one I used Soft Orchid, Dolled Up and Grand Fuchsia for the petals on the Peony Close Up Layering Stencils. I used Lemon Drop for the stamen and Spring Salad for the leaves. Once the ink was dry, I die-cut the panel with the second largest die in the Square Nested Die Set. I also die-cut a pink panel of cardstock with the largest Double Pierced Square Nested Die. Both panels were adhered to a 5.5″ square, white, top-folding card base.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Ribbons General Stamp with Dolled Up and Grand Fuchsia inks, then cut them out with the Coordinating Die. The sub-sentiment is from the Easy Expressions Birthday Stamp Set. It was stamped with Grand Fuchsia and Noir inks, then cut out with its Coordinating Die.

Both sentiment die-cuts were popped up in the lower, right corner with foam adhesive. Pink Opaque Rhinestones were the perfect finishing touch!!

I really love this color combo!! I also love that I can use this card for any occasion that calls for a celebration!!

Thanks for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me!! Have a great Tuesday!!
