Coming Up Cosmos X 2

Hey, crafty friends!! I hope you are all doing well!!

I have a couple of cards to share with you today using the Coming Up Cosmos Stamp, Climbing Cosmos Layering Stencils and Coordinating Die!!

The first one features the Coming Up Cosmos Layering Stencils

I began by stenciling on Cali Blue, Periwinkle and Grape Crush inks onto white cardstock with blending brushes for the cosmos and Meadow for the leaves and stems. Beach Blondie and Lemon Drop inks were used for the centers of the flowers. I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out. I also cut two more die-cuts from white cardstock and layered them behind the stenciled one.

For the background, I die-cut two layers of the Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies from white and pale yellow cardstock, then layered them over a white, top-folding card base. The sentiment is from the Coming Up Cosmos Stamp Set. It was stamped onto white cardstock with Grape Crush ink, trimmed and adhered with foam tape. A few Sky Blue Opaque Rhinestones finished off the card nicely.

My second card featured the Coming Up Cosmos Stamp

It’s been so long since I’ve done no-line coloring that I forgot how much I loved it!! I stamped the Coming Up Cosmos Stamp onto white cardstock with Light Oak ink. I colored it with Copic markers and colored pencils, then cut it out with the Coordinating Die. I also cut two more die-cuts from white cardstock and layered them behind the colored one.

For the background on this one, I die-cut one layer of the Diamond Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies from white cardstock and adhered it to a white, top-folding card base. The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock using the Orchid Crush and Plum Wine inks with the Ribbons General Stamp. It was die-cut with the Coordinating Die and adhered with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. Light Purple Opaque Rhinestones were the perfect match.

Which do you prefer…stenciling or coloring? The answer is both for me!! It just depends on my mood!!

Well, that’s it for me today!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great Wednesday!!

Hello and welcome back, everyone! Today, we’re celebrating our 7th anniversary! I hope you have enjoyed the journey thus far and will continue to do so as we grow and evolve.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Last year, we exhibited at the Expo, SSAT and CKC shows and we really enjoyed them. So we will continue to exhibit this year and as a result, it will take longer to fulfill packages for our online orders. I apologize for any inconvenience! For 2022, it may take up to 7 business days to fulfill an order if we are away at a show for the weekend.

Here’s a list of shows that we are attending this year:

Heartfelt Hugs

Hi all. Vera here. Hope you started 2022 in a wonderful way. I basically fell asleep before midnight, but hey, I considered having a good night sleep as a good way to start the day/year. Hah!

Even though right now is winter, I figure we couldn’t go wrong with floral card. That goes for all season, right?

For my card today, I used the lovely Heartfelt Blossoms set. I first ink blending Tourmaline on a piece of cardstock panel. I could use colored cardstock, but I really want this particular color background and decided to go with ink blending. Once done, I stamped and heat embossed the image off to the right side of the panel with Versamark ink and white embossing powder. Next, I stamped the same image again, die cut with coordinating Heartfelt Blossoms die and colored it with Copic markers.

I colored the white area around the flowers with Copic marker as well to make it blend better with the background. Once I am done with the coloring, I trimmed the panel to remove the dark edges and adhere it to the card base. Next, I adhere the colored blossoms with foam adhesive and trim the parts that sticking out. Turned out I am not too happy with the pink flower coloring once I adhere it, so I keep working on it till I achieved the look that I want. Finally, stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock and add to the card. Finished by adding some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.

I am loving this color combination and I hope you enjoy today’s card as well. Stay tune for our anniversary release that’s coming this week. All I can say, lots of pretty sets coming. Thank you all for stopping by here and may your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers….

Valentine’s Roses

Hello, everyone! Anna here and today I am celebrating Orthodox Christmas with my family. But guess what I made for you.

It’s the first my card this year and that is Valentine card.

I started by stamping beautiful flowers from Grouped Fresh Garden Roses in Bubblegum, Cherry, Valentine Red and Matcha, Vineyard, Basil Mojito. I cut them out with coordinating die. To create the floral cluster, I used Blossom Brunches that were stamped with Whisper Pink ink, Bubblegum, Cherry inks; Honey Dew, Raw Sea Glass and Matcha, Vineyard inks. They all were cut out with Blossom Branches Coordinating Die.

For the background, I cut a white cardstock panel using Quilted A2 Coverplate Die and adhered it on a white card base. To make the sentiment, I stamped XOXO in Bubblegum, cut it with matching die. “Happy Valentine’s Day” was stamped in Noir on a stripe of white cardstock.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hugs,

Anna

Rose Blossoms Birthday Card

Hello, crafty friends!! I hope this finds you all doing well!!

I’m on a mission to stock up my birthday card stash!! I was in the mood for a little stenciling, so I pulled out the Rose Blossoms Layering Stencil Set!! I just LOVE all of the layers to this set and the endless color combinations that you can come up with!!

I began by using blending brushes to stencil the Rose Blossoms Layering Stencils onto white cardstock with Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink, Peach Blossom, Coralline, Beach Blondie, Soft Garden and Bright Fern inks. I die-cut the stenciled panel with the largest die in the Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Nested Dies, then adhered it to a white, top-folding card base. The Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate was cut from coordinating pink cardstock and third largest frame was adhered to the front of the card.

For the sentiment, the Ribbons General Stamp Set was stamped with Peach Blossom and Coralline inks, then cut out with the Coordinating Die. “Birthday”, also from the Ribbons General set, was stamped onto white cardstock with Coralline Ink and cut into a narrow strip. Both the die-cut sentiment and sentiment strip were popped up with foam adhesive. A sprinkling of Sittin’ Pretty Sequins finishes off the card.

I really love this color combo!! It sure makes me long for spring!!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!! I do appreciate it!! Have a great Wednesday!!

Have A Wonderful Day

Hi all. Vera here today, posting the last post for 2021. Let’s end the year with some beauty, shall we?

For today, I decided to play with older sets as I want to show them some love. 🙂

To start with, I ink blending Cali Blu, Matcha, Lemon Drop, Coralline and Dolled Up on a panel of cardstock. Once I am happy with the blending, I trim the panel smaller. Next I used an old Peony cling background set that I believed already discontinued. But, pretty much you could use any of The Ton cling background set. I laid the panel next to the stamp, so I can kind of estimate where to lay each color. To keep the color soft, once I dab the ink, I dab the blender brush on top of it to pick some of the extra ink. Laid the panel on top of the cling stamp. Apology in advance that the pic below came out blurry. When I looked on my phone at first it look clear, only when I upload it to my computer that I realized it’s blurry, but this is the only pic I have before I put the card together.

Next, I stamped and die cut the flowers from Today’s Cosmos and Delightful Wildflower. With the colorful background, I keep these flower and leaves just the way they are, no colored. Sometime less is more. To finish, I used one of the sentiment from Easy Expressions and add some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.


I am really happy with the way this card turned out. I guess rainbow colors always make me happy. Well peeps, that’s all from me today as we close out 2021. My wish for you may 2022 be filled with rainbows and may it brings you good health, prosperity and joy. Have a blessed year, everyone. Cheers….

Winter Wishes

Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! It’s TaeEun here today with a winter wish slimline card. I made it using some of our winter themed die sets! 

To create a wintery scene I made a watercolored background panel first. I did watercolor wash on a slimline sized mixed media paper panel in green, indigo, blue violet and blue. I left the bottom quarter of the panel uncolored which represents a snow covered hill. I sprayed pearl water on the panel to add some shimmer to it. After the panel was dry I splattered clear water to add some texture. 

I cut the finished background panel using the Slimline Dot coverplate die and adhered it on a white slimline cardbase. 

Next I cut a few pine trees and deers from some watercolor paper using Pine Tree Cover die and Deer Cover die. I arranged some pine trees on the snowy hill of my card and added three deers which I watercolored in brown.

The sentiment is from Wonderland Print stamp set. I finished off the card with a few Glass Slippers Round Confetti! 

That’s it from me today! Hope you like my wintery scenic slimline card!

Enjoy the last days of 2021! Wishing you all the best for the New Year! 

Hugs,

TaeEun

Christmas Poinsettias

Hi all. Only 2 more days till Christmas! Of course, for today’s card I feel to be appropriate I should make a Christmas cards. Definitely too late to send it out, but I’d consider this early start to next year stash. 🙂 After looking through my collection, I decided to play with the gorgeous & classy Boundless Poinsettias.

To start, I made the background using Quilted A2 Coverplate die. I adhere this directly on the card base after trimming it slightly smaller. For the poinsettias I used Arctic Sky, Cali Blue and Periwinkle. Now, sometimes I got lazy in actually washing my stamp. I was originally planning on making turquoise poinsettias instead of blue & changed my mind. However, I just wiped the second layer stamp of the poinsettias and that’s why my second layer looks more turquoise than blue because it has left over residue. And, it came out pretty, so I don’t see any reason to start over and just continued layering the 3rd layer with Periwinkle. For the leaves I used Honey Dew and Meadow.

Now, since I grew up in tropic country, I thought it would be cool to mix it up a bit by adding some Multi Monsteras to the bouquet to add a hint of tropical atmosphere to the card. Adhere all the parts to the card. To add extra interest, I decided to add frame to the card to really make the middle part of the bouquet poop more. I used one of the cut out frame from the many frames that I got from using Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Border die. Add some enamel dot stickers and Merry Christmas sentiment from Winter Foliage set stamped with Hot Tourmaline ink. Of course, any Christmas card could use a little sparkle to make it more festive, right? So, I finish by adding ice stickles to the center of the flowers. Let dry and that’s it.

There you go. Last Christmas card for 2021 from my end. I hope you enjoy today’s card. And, to all of you who celebrate Christmas I wish you all a joyful and blessed Christmas. This year been crazy and to many may have been a tough year, and I wish you all peace and may we all be able to find joy in the small things like simply being with the your loved ones. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone. Let’s remember the reason for the season and be kind to one another. Cheers…

Hello – Rose Labels

Hello, crafty friends and happy Wednesday!! I don’t know about you, but once I’m finished with Christmas cards, I can’t wait to use colors other than red & green!! Although I do use a lot of untraditional colors for holiday cards, I just crave something totally different!

For today’s card, I decided to combine some ink colors that I don’t think I’ve ever used together before.

I began by stamping the Rose Labels Grouped Layering Stamp Set with Orchid Crush, Plum Wine & Grape Crush on the roses, Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop & Found Topaz on the smaller flowers and Bright Fern & Deep Emerald on the leaves. I cut them out with the Rose Labels Coordinating Dies. The Ribbons General sentiment was stamped with Orchid Crush and Plum Wine, then cut out with its Coordinating Die. I also die-cut two more layers from white cardstock and stacked them behind the stamped one for dimension.

For the background, I die-cut the Quilted A2 Coverplate Die from white cardstock and layered it over a panel of plum cardstock, then adhered it to a white, top-folding card base. The roses, flowers and leaves were arranged, picked up with Press ‘N Seal, adhered together, then added to the front of the card with foam adhesive. The die-cut sentiment was adhered with liquid adhesive. A few Glass Slippers Sequins were sprinkled on for a little shine.

Well, that’s it for me today!! I appreciate you taking the time to stop by!! Have a very happy holiday and best wishes in the new year!!

Winter mittens

Hello, everyone! Anna here today with a winter card I made using Winter Mittens Dies.

I started by die cutting mittens from white, red and light blue cardstock. I added Valentine Red ink on the red pieces and added Cali Blue ink on the light blue pieces. Then, I adhered top layers of the mittens on the base layers. Strings were cut from glitter silver cardstock.

For the background, I cut out sand cardstock panel using SLIMLINE – Dot Coverplate Die and glued it to A2 sized white card base.

The sentiment from Easy Expressions Holiday stamp set was stamped in Noir and Cali Blue and cut out with Easy Expressions Holiday Coordinating Die. Lastly, I embellished the card with a few silver sequins.

That’s all from me today! Have a great start of this week!

Anna
