Lilies Love

Hi peeps. How’s it going? Vera here today bringing you mid week inspiration.

I’ve been with The Ton for quite a while and there are just some sets that are really stands out and goes to my all time favorite pile. One of them is the gorgeous Coming Up Lilies. I puffy heart this set.

Lilies is one of my favorite flower and they’re so pretty and fun to color. For my card, I stamped and colored the flower. For extra details, I added some dots using white gel pen.

Next, I die cut the word love using Tall & Skinny Alphas Coverplate from white cardstock twice and from silver glitter paper once. Layered and adhere to the panel. Next, I stamped the sentiment Thinking of You from Large Floral Peony set. Then adhere the completed panel to the card base.

Finished by adding some Pixie Pink Sparkling Clear sequins. I realized that it’s been a while since I use any sequins on my card. So, I am glad that I get to use them again.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card. Thank you for swinging by here and big virtual hugs to you all!

Lovely Hibiscus and Country Lilies

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here and today I’m sharing a couple of cards, I made using new layering dies from The Ton July 2020 Release.

The first card features Country Lily Layering Dies.

I started by cutting out all layers of beautiful lilies from white cardstock. Then I colored layers using Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and Beach Blondie. I splatted last layers of the flowers with Holbein watercolors. Stamens were colored with Found Topaz. To make leaves, I ink blended Soft Garden and Everglade Moss on a piece of white cardstock and cut out them with Leafy Bits Coverplate Die.

I cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than a card front using Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Dies and ink blended Soft Orchid on it.

Then I affixed two lilies and leaves to the card panel using 3D foam pads. I foam mounted that card panel on a white card base.

I stamped the sentiment from Easy Expressions Birthday stamp set with Noir and Cali Blue and cut out with Easy Expressions Birthday Coordinating Die.

Another card is showcasing Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies.

IMG_1122(11)

I cut out all layers of hibiscus from white cardstock and did ink blending using Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink; Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss (for leaves). I heat embossed the stamens in Glitter Gold.

For the background, I cut out a card panel using Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Dies and ink blended Cali Blue and Warm Hazelnut on it.

To create the sentiment, I used Easy Expressions Birthday stamps and dies as well. But “Cheers” was stamped in Beach Blondie. Lastly, I added few Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots to finish off the card.

That’s all from me today. Have a great Monday, friends!

Lovely Hibiscus Thank You Card

Hello, friends!! I hope you had a great week and plan to have some time to relax this weekend!!

I have a card to share featuring the Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies!! Wow!! Does this huge bloom make a statement!! It creates such a focal point, all you need is a simple sentiment for an absolutely striking card!

I began by die-cutting the layers of the Lovely Hibiscus Dies from different colors of cardstock and gold glitter paper. I adhered it all together and then cut a stamen from gold glitter paper.

I chose a beautiful teal cardstock to serve as the background for my hibiscus and die-cut a panel with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Nested Dies. The Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Border Coverplate Die was used to cut a rectangle from gold glitter cardstock. The sentiment was cut from teal cardstock and gold glitter paper using the Many Sentiments Coverplate Dies, and added with foam adhesive.

That’s it! These cards really come together quickly with these amazing layering dies! The hardest part is figuring out what colors to use!!

Thanks for hanging out with me today!! Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you soon!!

Hi with Anemone Flowers

Hello crafty friends! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a greeting card embellished with anemone flowers!

I used the Trio Anemone Cluster Layering dies to Create the layered anemone flowers. These cluster dies cut three flowers together. So for three layers of three flowers you need to die cut only three times 🙂 !

TT0730 1 WM

I cut the trio twice from some watercolor paper to get six anemone flowers. I then watercolored the first and the second layer in yellow, orange and pink while making the second layer darker. The outline layers were cut from some white cardstock. I assembled all six flowers and set them aside.

To add the coordinating colors to the background I ink blended the border of a white cardbase in Lemon Drop, Coralline hybrid and Soft Garnet. The white frame was cut using the Double Pierced Oval Nested Dies and foam mounted on the cardbase.

TT0730 4 WM

Next I cut the letter “HI” using the Tall and Skinny Alpha Coverplate die three times from white cardstock and colored one of them in orange, yellow and pink Copic markers.  I stacked the letters together and added it to the card.

The white leaves were cut using the Leafy Bits Coverplate die from some white cardstock. I added some of the leaves on the cardbase and arranged the anemone flowers using foam tape as shown in the picture. I cut off the excessive part of the flowers except for the anemones on the top of the card. To finish off I scattered some sequins from Lemon Chiffon Sequins.

I love how this card turned out ! It looks so cheerful! I hope you like the card too :)!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Anemones & Butterfly

Hi peeps. How’s it going? Vera here today and I have a couple fun cards to share.

First up is a card I made using Trio Anemone Cluster Layering Dies.

For this card, I started by die-cutting all the Anemone layers from watercolor cardstock, except for the top layer, which I cut from black cardstock. Then, I watercolor the two bottom layer with different intensity and let them dry. Once dry, adhere all the pieces together and put aside.

Next, I work on the background. I watercolor the background, let dry and stamp the Peony Terrace Background with Blue Diamond ink pad.

Before adhering the background panel to the card base, I added a wide strip of black cardstock behind it. Then arrange all the flowers and adhere with foam adhesive. For the sentiment I stamped and heat embossed sentiment from Modern Labels.

Somehow at the end, I feel like the card have that old school look. Maybe because of the color combo that I used? Or maybe it just my imagination. Hah!!

Since I was in the mood of creating, I ended up making another card. This time using my favorite dies, the Monarch Butterfly dies.

Well, since I was in the mood to create, I ended up making another card. This time using my favorite, the Monarch Butterfly Coverplate dies.

I simply did alcohol ink on yupo paper for the background and while it still kind of wet, I laid gold foil paper on it. If you check my Instagram post, I had a little clip showing the shiny foil. I then laid the framed butterfly on top of it. For the sentiment, I used an upcoming alphabet dies that coming soon. I can tell you, I am in love with this dies set. I know, it such a tease, but trust me, it will be worth the wait!!

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I hope you enjoy today’s inspirations and may your weekend starts off wonderfully! Cheers….

The main actor of the second card is the die cut sentiment created using the Tall and Skinny Alpha Coverplate die. The Lily Trio Layering Coverplate Dies was used to create the background.

The letters for BEAUTIFUL was cut using the Tall and Skinny Alpha Coverplate die three times from white cardstock and once from Adhesive Glitter paper glossy fine silver.

I cut “you’re” using Sweetheart Word Plate die from some watercolor paper, colored it in light pink and added it onto the BEAUTIFUL. Here also I used some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix to embellish the card.
