Purple Poinsettias

Good morning!! I LOVE creating holiday cards with non-traditional colors!! Especially with a touch (or a lot) of black for a little drama!! I decided on purple for today’s card and I love how it turned out…

I started by stamping the Poinsettia Arrangement onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink and coloring the image with Copics. I did add some additional details with colored pencils. I fussy cut the image and set it aside to work on my background.

I stamped and heat embossed the Holiday Border Cling Background stamp onto purple cardstock with WOW! White Twinkle embossing powder. I wish you could see the sparkle from this embossing powder…it is white with silver glitter mixed in!! I trimmed the panel slightly and adhered it to a white A2 cardbase. The greeting, also from Poinsettia Arrangement, was white heat embossed onto black cardstock and cut out. I popped the poinsettia image and the greeting up with foam adhesive. Lastly, some Silver Stickles add some bling to the center of the poinsettias.

That’s it for me today!! How about you? Do you prefer traditional or non-traditional colors in your holiday cards?

Have a wonderful weekend!!

I started by stamping gift boxes and poinsettia cluster onto a white cardstock and heat embossed them in white. Then, I colored all images with watercolors and fussy cut them all.

To create pine branches, I ink blended Everglade Moss on a piece of white cardstock and cut them from Pine Branches SGV Cut File. I added some ultrathick embossing enamel to all images.

I made the background by ink blending Arctic Sky on a A2 sized card panel. Lastly, I adhered all elements on my card and stamped the sentiment in Smoky Quartz.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great day, friends!

Happy Thanksgiving Duo

Hi peeps! Vera here. Hope you’re enjoying a nice fall weather today.  That’s what I love about the fall,  the slightly cooler weather. I am in Texas, so I can’t say the much cooler weather. Hah…. Just slightly…

With this fall weather, it makes in the mood to create a couple fall cards. For the first card, I used this gorgeous Thanksgiving Block.

IMG2943
I love that this set can help me in completing a card in short time. I literally just dab various ink colors by section and soften the edge each time by dabbing a foam. Repeat the process two-three times for each color.

The color from top to bottom: The Ton Soft Garden, Beach Blondie, Coralline and Soft Garnet. Once I finished inking up the image, I trimmed the image and adhere it to the card base. Stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock and add to the card.

For my next card, I played with Oak Leaf Print & go for a bit more colors.

IMG2944
This time the color I used from top to bottom: The Ton Bright Emerald, Soft Garden, Beach Blondie, Coralline, Soft Garnet and Iris Blooms. The addition of Bright Emerald on the top makes me happy. I feel like the color bring extra brightness and cheerfulness to the card.

Adhere the panel to the card base and add the sentiment. These 2 cards are what I like to think simple and clean with a punch. Just because it simple doesn’t mean it has to be boring.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s cards and may your Friday be an awesome one and that your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers…

Watercolored Poinsettia Wreath

Hello and happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card. Our Fall 2019 Release includes five gorgeous holiday stamp designs. I’m using one of them called, Poinsettia Wreath! Surely you’ve seen beautiful inspirations using this stamp set already. For today’s inspiration card I did no-line coloring.

TT1007 1 WM

I started by stamping the Poinsettia Wreath in a light colored ink on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I then started watercoloring the poinsettias. For the red part of the poinsettias I used only one color; Cadmium red. I added different shades by coloring in layers.

TT1007 CU2 WM

I wanted to tone down the green color. So I added a bit of brown to sap green. The holy leaves were colored in Hooker’s green and purple. I also colored the inside of the wreath in purple and added white splatters to it.

TT1007 2 WM

After the panel was dry, I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle dies and foam mounted it on a kraft cardbase.

TT1007 CU1 WM

The sentiment was cut using Holiday word dies from adhesive Gold Foil paper and three times more from some white cardstock. I stacked them together and added it onto the card. The “Christmas” is from Holiday Trio set. I stamped it in Grape Crush on a strip of white cardstock and adhered it underneath the die cut “merry”.

TT1007 3 WM

There are so many things to learn in watercoloring and the big image of Poinsettia Wreath is great for practicing watercoloring! It took me about 4 hours to color, but it was worth it! Hope you like my card too!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Happy Holiday – Poinsettia Wreath

Hello, crafty friends!! I have a card to share with you today that showcases the Poinsettia Wreath stamp set!!

Poinsettia-Wreath-1

gold heat embossed the Poinsettia Wreath onto Bristol paper and watercolored it in shades of blue and green with Zig Clean Color Markers. I also added lots of splatters!! (I told you I was addicted!!)

Poinsettia-Wreath-2

The sentiment is also from the Poinsettia Wreath stamp set and was white heat embossed onto blue cardstock. I didn’t want a rectangular block for my sentiment, so I fussy cut around it and popped it up with foam adhesive. I added lots of gold & blue Stickles to centers of the poinsettias and the berries and called it done!!

Poinsettia-Wreath-3

I wish that you could see all of the sparkle on this card!! It makes my glitter loving heart so happy!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?

Merry and Bright

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna today here with a festive card that I created using Poinsettia Wreath stamp set. Poinsettia wreath is a fab image to create holiday cards.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping images onto A2 sized kraft card panel in Hampton White Pigment. The card panel was cut with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). Then, I colored them with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Next, I stamped “Merry Christmas” in Noir. Other sentimets were stamped on strips of black cardstock and heat embossed in white.

I added some Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (white) and a few sequins from Sugar Cookie Couture Mix to embellish my card.

That’s all from me today. Hope you started to make Christmas cards. ))

Transformation Shaker

Hello, everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a shaker card made using Transformation butterfly and the coordinating cut file. However, there are coordinating dies available for preorder here. Please be sure to double check the ship date field on the drop down menu for approximate shipping date.

screen_shot_2019-09-19_at_7.23.24_pm_1024x1024

This butterfly is so gorgeous and is loved by many crafters! It’s such a dreamy image and the stamp set has some awesome encouraging sentiments! I love them!

I used the coordinating cut file to cut the shaker window, but Effie recently released the coordinating die for which you can place a preorder.

TT0930 1 WM

I started off by making the front shaker window panel using coordinating cut file on Cricut design space. I cut out the butterfly from an A2 sized rectangle and welded it with a rectangle frame. I then cut it from a white woodgrain cardstock.

TT0930 CU1 WMx

On the MISTI I placed the Transformation stamp on a watercolor paper panel aligning it with the shaker window. I heat embossed the image in Rose Gold embossing powder.  I colored the flowers and the butterfly wing in Peony, Lemon Yellow and Orange Color Burst.

TT0930 CU3 WM

I chose Flamenco Sunset and Pink Blossoms Couture Mixes to fill the shaker. I adhered some sequins on the image before I assembled the shaker together. Unfortunately I forgot to apply anti-static powder on the side of the foam tape wall, so many of the sequins are stuck there now. I have to make shaker cards more often to remember that 🙂 !

I stamped the sentiment on the front panel in Noir and the card was finished!

TT0930 2 WM

That’s it for today! I hope I was able to inspire you with my card!

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments in advance!

Have a crafty day!

Sending Peony Hugs

Hi here lovely peeps. Vera here.

I know that I need to build up my Christmas card stash and I need to get busy doing that, however I can’t help it & find myself still playing with the the everyday flower set. After all you can’t have too many just because cards, right?

For today, I play with this pretty Peony Dreams Cluster set.

IMG2941.1
To start, I stamped and heat embossed the flower with The Ton Rose Gold embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock and then watercolor it. I really love this color combination. In my book you can’t go wrong with blue, aqua and green combo. A dash of pink help brighten the whole scheme.

I am impatient, so I used my heat gun to speed up the drying time. Once that done, I die cut the sentiment using Love and Hugs Word Plate dies set. I layered the sentiment 3 times to make it stand out a bit more.

IMG2941.2
For the top layer of the word hugs I die cut it from Gold Adhesive Foil Paper. Love the extra shine it adds to the card. For finishing touch I added my favorite embellishment the mixed size dew drops.

I enjoy the process of making this card and I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration from The Ton. Thank you for stopping by here and may your Friday be a good one. Here’s to a fab weekend, peeps. Cheers….
