Christmas Poinsettia

Hi peeps! Vera here today. Only 6 more days till Christmas! And, yes, yours truly is still working on her Christmas cards. Hah… I am a firm believer in that better late than never in this case.¬† ūüėČ

Anyway, for today, I decided to play with the beautiful Coming Up Poinsettia set.

IMG2797.2
I ink up the gradient background by using masking tape to cover the border. Once that done, I stamped, heat embossed the poinsettia with Rose Gold embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then I went to town watercolor this beauty. Let dry.

Now, when I am stress out sometime I feel the need to do fussy cutting and that’s what I did here. I don’t know what is it about fussy cutting that help me in calming down my stress or frustration. It’s like cheap therapy. Hah!!

IMG2797.4
Once that done, I layer the panel on dark green cardstock and adhere the poinsettia with foam adhesive. Follow by stamping the Merry Christmas sentiment from Good Tidings Cluster set on a strip of cardstock and again adhere to the card with foam adhesive. I just like layering this way. Finish by adding some mix size dew drops.

IMG2797.1
This color combo not quite the standard Christmas color, but  not too far off, either in my opinion. Ahh, the beauty of art and crafting,right? You can use whatever colors that make you happy. Try out new combo, just have fun!

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and if you’re behind like me on your Christmas cards, just keep chugging along. ūüėČ Cheers……

Season’s Greetings shaker cards

Hello Everyone! Anna here with three Christmas shaker cards you can quick and easy make using awesome The Ton’s stamp sets and dies.

SONY DSC

For the first card I started off by stamping images from amazing Wonderland Print Stamps with Couture Color – Bright Emerald Dye and Couture Color – Plum Wine Dye (two images were stamped with Orchid Crush Dye). The layer with pine branches was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in Metallic Platinum Glitter. I cut out all images using Wonderland Print Coordinating Dies. To make the background of the shaker, I ink blended Orchid Crush Dye and stamped sentiment in Noir.

I added sequins from Lilac Blossoms Couture Mix and Queen Anne’s Lace Couture Mix into the shaker and assembled the shaker elements together. Lastly, I affixed the shaker to the grey cardstock card base.

To create the second card, I used Christmas Wreath Builder stamp set.

SONY DSC

At first, I stamped the wreath with Couture Color – Deep Emerald Dye, Couture Color – Everglade Moss Dye and Couture Color – Aspen Cocoa Dye. Seven pine cones were stamped with Versamark onto kraft cardstock and heat embossed in Glitter Gold. Then, I stamped a bow using Couture Color – Red Sangria Hybrid and Couture Color – Valentine Red Dye. I die cut all images with Christmas Wreath Builder Coordinating Dies. To make the background I used Buildable Woodgrain stamps and Couture Color – Cocoa Collection.

Next, I added sequins from Deck the Halls Couture Mix into the shaker and assembled the shaker elements together. The sentiment was stamped in Noir.

Here is the third card I made using Blizzard Hugs stamps and Blizzard Hugs Coordinating Dies.

SONY DSC

At first, I stamped two snowflakes onto white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed them in Glitter White. For the shaker I made windows using Blizzard Hugs Coordinating Dies. I put Milky Way Couture Mix and mounted the background panel. Then, I ink blended Cali Blue Dye on a piece of white cardstock and die cut the main snowflake.

SONY DSC

I attached it and a smaller white snowflake to the card and embellished my card using a few sequins from Summer Skies Couture Mix and Duck Egg Blue Nuvo Drops. The sentiment was stamped on a stripe of white cardstock and heat embossed in Metallic Platinum Glitter.

That’s all from me today! I hope you enjoyed my cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another quick holiday card using our Holiday Love Poinsettia and Glass Windows Background Stamp.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by rose gold heat embossing our Holiday Love Poinsettia. Then I painted the cluster image using Ken Oliver Color Bursts (Alizarin Crimson, Orange, Sap Green and Turquoise ).

holiday love poinsettia2

Next I white heat embossed our Glass Windows Background Stamp onto watercolor paper and applied a Sap Green wash onto the embossed panel. I added Terre Vert color burst to the windows/boxes of the design while the Sap Green wash was still wet. Then I added some additional Sap Green and Turquoise to the panel to add a bit of variation to my background.

Once my panel was dried, I die cut our poinsettia cluster with the coordinating die. I also used the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle Small Die collection to cut the background into a panel slight smaller than A2 size.

I’ll be quite honest here. After I finished painting my green windowed panel, I almost scrapped the background. I wasn’t in love with it. This background looked amazing when painted with prussian blue so I thought the technique would look great with green on my holiday card. At this point, I decided to push through it and just use the panel since I had already created it. To tone down the business of the bright green background, I used smaller stitched rectangular panel as a point to ground my poinsettia cluster. It totally worked! It made the background work. I’m so happy I didn’t scrap the green background.

I adhered the green windowed panel onto an A2 side folding base, then I adhered the smaller white stitched panel onto the green panel. Next I stamped my sentiment (which is from the Holiday Love Poinsettia set) onto the white panel using our Caviar Hybrid Ink. Next I popped up my cluster with some dimensional foam tape and completed my card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins over the entire front of my card in visual triangles.

Rose Gold Happy Birthday

Happy Friday!! Brenda here with you today…

Have I ever told you about my love affair with The Ton’s Rose Gold Embossing Powder? Yep, completely smitten with it!! It melts soooooo smooth!!! The birthday card I am sharing today has lots of rose gold on it.

Happy-birthday-rose-gold1

I started off by stamping the stunning Gardenia Border Cling Background Stamp with Versamark onto Bristol smooth paper and¬†embossing it with Rose Gold Embossing Powder. After coloring it with Zigs, I cut the image with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). I die-cut “happy” with the Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from some rose gold glitter paper and white fun foam. “Birthday”, from Peony Laurel, was also stamped with Rose Gold Embossing Powder¬†below the die-cut sentiment. I pulled out sequins from the Guava Sparkle, Raspberry Sparkle and Rose Champagne Sparkle Couture Mixes to match the coloring and called it done.

Hello, everyone! The countdown to Christmas has begun and my deadline to send out cards is really coming down to the wire… For today, I have a watercolored card created using our Cozy Poinsettias and Modern Plaid stamps.

I’m going to keep this blog post brief with my video where I explain the process.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

Hello and welcome back! Today, I have two cards using our Grand Bows and Diagonal Stripes background stamp. We also have an exclusive discount code. Scroll down for the code!

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by creating my background panels first. I stamped our Diagonal Stripes onto a white A2 panel with our Valentine Red Dye Ink. Then I white heat embossed the stamp onto an red A2 panel.

grand bow gift cards2

For my first card, I stamped our Grand Bows in Valentine Red and Aspen Cocoa dye inks. Here is a video layering tutorial where I describe the process in more detail. Then I created silver “ribbons” using our metallic Silver Foil Tape. Please note that our foil adhesive products do not contain any metal elements. Next I die cut my red panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Small die collection. I adhered the center panel onto a side folding cardbase.¬†Then I popped up my silver foil strips onto my base with foam tape.

Next I created my tag for my sentiment using our Holiday Chic Tags stamp set and coordinating fishtail tag die. The tag was first stamped with the speckled stamp in our Crystal Pewter Dye Ink. Then I die cut the tag using the fishtail tag die which also leaves pierced edges and gives the tag a beautiful finished look. Then I stamped the sentiment. Once my tag was created, I popped it up onto my card first. Then I popped up my die cut Grand Bow. Lastly, I popped up that thin border that I die cut earlier from our red embossed panel.

My next card was created in a similar fashion. I just used a different color palette for this one. Instead of silver foil tape, I used our Red Foil Adhesive paper for the “ribbons”. For my bow I used a combination of our Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz dye inks. I also added a Pop Up Poinsettia inside this second card.

Digital Printables and New Background Stamps for Holiday

Hello and happy Friday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with three holiday cards and tags! I used some of our new background stamps released in November and digital printables from our store.

Let’s start with a couple of shaker cards.

TT1207 all WM

Recently I played with our new digital items. I foiled some of in black printed Christmas Trees and I thought I could use the negative pieces of the beautiful foils to make shaker cards. So I made two of them ūüôā !¬†¬†The golden Christmas tree was turned into a tag and the teal one was used on a card in my previous post.

TT1207 1 2 WM

To create the front panel of this card I cut the Christmas Tree from a A2 sized white cardstock and blended Pink Derby, Red Sangria Hybrid ink and Soft Garnet on the panel. I then stamped Modern Plaid Cling background stamp in Hampton white pigment ink on it. I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle Die.

TT1207 1 CU1 WM

I adhered the negative gold foil of a Christmas Tree and a clear acetate piece behind the shaker window. To make the background I blended Soft Garden and Caribbean Turquoise on the center of the cardbase, added white dots using a white gel pen and adhered some sequins from Misty Mint Couture Mix which I used to fill the shaker along with Pink Blossoms Couture Mix. I gold heat embossed the tiny snowflakes from Holiday Ballet stamp set on some white cardstock, cut it with the coordinating dies and blended Soft Garnet on some of the snowflakes. I added them as tree decorations to finish off the card.

TT1207 1 tag WM

I made the golden Christmas Tree¬†into a tag. I’ve made more tags with the colorful Christmas Tree¬†by simply printing and cutting them.

TT1207 tag WM

The making process of the second shaker is actually the same as the first one.

TT1207 2 2 WM

This time I white heat embossed the Confetti Party Cling stamp on the front panel and blended Violet Fringe, Deep Sapphire, Cali Blue and Hot Tourmaline .

TT1207 2 CU new

The blue to pink ombre background was created by blending Cali Blue, Caribbean Turquoise, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria Hybrid ink. To fill the shaker I chose Midnight Frost Couture Mix and Light Blue Topaz Sparkling Clear sequins.

TT1207 3 3 WM

The next holiday card is showcasing Holiday Ornaments Printables. This file includes black and colored version of Christmas ornaments. I printed the black ornaments to foil them in various colors.

TT1207 3 CU1 WM

The foiled ornaments were fussy cut ( You can use the coordinating dies of Holiday Ornaments stamp set.). I adhered some Adhesive Foil Paper Gold as the cap on the ornaments.

TT1207 3 4 WM

I made the background panel using Gansai Tambi watercolor in purple, blue and pink on some watercolor paper, cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle Die and foam mounted it on a pink cardbase.  The gold heat embossed sentiment is from Blizzard Hugs set. I then added the ornaments with a golden thread onto the card using some foam adhesive.

That was the last card I made for today’s post! Hope I was able to inspire you!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

TaeEun

 

 

 

 

Pop Up Poinsettia Shaker Card

Hello! Today I want to show you an interactive card with the Pop Up Poinsettia inside and a shaker.

IMG_20181205_111809-01-01

I stamped Wanderland Print stamps layer by layer using Bright Emerald, Soft Garnet and Caribbean Turquoise dye.

IMG_20181205_112028-01

Then I applied Coordinating die and Double Stitched Rectangle die . The next step was glueing the overlay, filling it with Queen Anne`s Lace Couture Mix and fixing it to the base with foam tape.

IMG_20181205_112812-01

I cut the pop-up’s details of Pop Up Poinsettia Standalone dies¬†and toned it with Soft Garnet and Caribbean Turquoise¬†dyes and glued it inside the card.

Thank you for stopping, have a nice day!

 

Holiday Season’s cards

Hello Everyone! Anna here with two Holiday Season’s cards.

Here is the first card

SONY DSC

At first, I cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than a card front. Then I stamped images from amazing Wonderland Print Stamps with Couture Color – Bright Emerald Dye and Couture Color – Valentine Red Dye. The layer with pine branches was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in Rose Gold.

SONY DSC

I stamped sentiment in Noir. I attached the panel to red glitter cardstock card front panel.

Lastly, I added a few sequins from Just a Dream Couture Mix to finish off the card.

To create the second card, I started by ink blending Couture Color – Red Sangria Hybrid and Couture Color – Valentine Red Dye on a piece of white cardstock. Next, I cut out the mittens on cricut machine using Mittens Buildable Bundle SVG Cut File.

SONY DSC

Next, I created a cluster of pine brunches (Pine Branches SVG Cut File) using green, dark green, glitter green and glitter silver cardstock. I added some white enamel to a kraft card base to create a background and stamped the sentiment from Holiday Chic Tags Stamp Set with Noir.

I attached all images to my card and embellished it with a few sequins from Queen Anne’s Lace Couture Mix.
