Wishing You A Merry Christmas – Confetti Shapes Ornaments

Hey, crafty friends!! Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (those who celebrate) and scored some fantastic deals on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday!!

I’m still cranking out Christmas cards over here!! I have a festive, mostly die-cut card to share with you today!!

I began by gold heat embossing the Confetti Shapes Circle Stamps onto red cardstock and the sentiments from Styled Christmas Sentiments onto white cardstock. I used the Confetti Shapes Circle Dies and Styled Christmas Sentiments Die to cut them out. I added a bit of Valentine Red and Noir Ink to the outside of the ornaments with blending brushes. I also die-cut the strings, ornament toppers and bows from matte gold cardstock using the dies in the Confetti Shapes Circle Die Set.

The background was die-cut from white cardstock using a die in the Diamond Plaid Layering Coverplate Die Set and added to a white card base. The Mini Sprigs Die was cut from green cardstock and the sprigs were adhered along the frame of the card. The Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Coverplate was cut from white cardstock and the largest frame was adhered. The ornaments and die-cut sentiment were adhered as shown, layering some of the sprigs over them.

That’s it! A pretty simple card, but the gold touches and the layered die-cuts really make it standout!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a terrific Monday!!

Season’s Greetings

Hello, everyone! Anna here with you! Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you had a great time with your family and friends. Today I’m sharing a festive card I made using Holiday&Seasonal stamp sets and dies.

I started by die cutting a bauble from white cardstock using Confetti Shapes Circle Coordinating Dies and colored it with Cherry, Valentine Red and Wine inks. The top of the bauble was cut out from gold glitter cardstock.

For the pine sprigs, I ink blended Basil Mojito on a piece of white cardstock and cut out them with Pine Sprig Cover Die. Leaves from Winter Foliage were stamped in Spring Salad and Everglade Moss and cut out with Winter Foliage Coordinating Die. Then, I stamped images from Berry Bits in Cali Blue, Parisian Blue (berries) and in Matcha, Meadow (leaves). All berry bits were cut out with Berry Bits coordinating die.

To make the background, I ink blended Cali Blue on the top of the card panel and white heat embossed the jeweled image from Sentiment Jewelry stamp set.

The sentiment from Easy Expressions Holiday stamp set was stamped in Noir and Valentine Red and cut out with Easy Expressions Holiday Coordinating Die.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And don’t forget about Black Friday in The Ton shop!

Tropical Christmas

Hi, crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card in tropical color scheme! I’ve never been to Australia or other countries in the southern hemisphere. So it’s hard to imagine how it would be over there at Christmas in the middle of Summer 🙂 ! I thought it would be fun to make a tropical holiday card !

First I stamped the Poinsettia Bouquet on a A2 sized watercolor paper panel. I stamped a small part of the large image four times on each corner of the panel to create a floral border. I stamped it in Soft Cream to do no line coloring.

I watercolored the image in bright colors and left the background white. I added a bit of shade to the image using Polychromos colored pencils. I then cut the panel with the largest die from the Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested die set and adhered it flat on a white cardbase.

I cut the Merry Christmas Sentiment from a golden cardstock which I made by adhering the Adhesive Gold Foil paper on white cardstock and foam mounted it on the card. I finished off the card with a few Medallion Gold sequins. 

That’s it from me ! Hope you’ve got some inspiration from my card! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!

Butterfly Hugs

Hi all. Vera here today. Since I’ve been doing lots of Christmas cards lately, I wanted to take a little break and create non Christmas card. And, I turned to one of my all time favorite set from The Ton, this gorgeous butterfly set called Transformation.

To start, I stamped and heat embossed the butterfly with Rose Gold embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Die cut the image using Transformation coordinating dies. Once that done, I watercolor it and let it dry. While waiting for it to dry, I worked on the greeneries for the background. From a piece of watercolor cardstock I die cut Foliage Border and colored them. Once dry, I trim the border leaving only the leaves. Because I trim the border all the leaves came out loose and I simply adhere them directly to the card base.

Next, I adhere the butterfly to the card with foam adhesive. For the sentiment, I used one of the sentiment from Heartfelt Blossoms, trim it and adhere to the card. To finish, I add some Pixie Pink Sparkling Clear sequins and some enamel drops to the berries.

I love the way this card turned out and I hope you enjoy it as well. That’s all from me today peeps. For those who celebrate it, I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving week. Whether you celebrate it with family or friends or strangers, I hope it’s a good one and be filled with gratitude. Big hugs.

Coming Up Poinsettias Christmas Card

Hey, friends!! Happy Friday!! Have you been working on your Christmas cards? Hopefully the card I have to share today will serve as inspiration for you!!

I began by gold heat embossing the Coming Up Poinsettias Stamp Set onto Bristol cardstock. I watercolored the image with Zig Clean Color Markers, then cut it out with the Coordinating Die. I also cut two more layers from white cardstock and adhered them behind the watercolored die-cut.

For the background, I gold heat embossed the Modern Plaid Cling Background Stamp onto a panel of peach cardstock. I used the second largest die in the Rectangle A2 Nested Die Set to die-cut the panel. I blended Peach Blossom, Coral Cavern and Valentine Red Inks onto the panel with blending brushes, blending the darkest color around the edge and fading it toward the middle. The poinsettia die-cut were adhered to the panel. The sentiment is from the Easy Expressions Holiday Stamp Set. I stamped it with Valentine Red and Noir Inks, then die-cut it with the Coordinating Die and adhered it across the poinsettias. A few Medallion Gold Sequins and some gold Stickles on the centers of the poinsettias add a little shine.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful weekend!!

Warm Winter Wishes

Hi crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card in a clean look. I used some of our holiday items from this year and matched them with wintery holiday dies from last year. 

I made a colorful snow globe and placed it on a white card as a focal element.  Let’s take a look 🙂 !

I started by stamping a corner of the Jolly Border image in Caviar hybrid ink on a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped it again in an embossing ink and clear heat embossed the image. I then watercolored the poinsettia cluster and the background and let it dry. 

I cut two small pine trees using the Pine Tree cover die from some watercolor paper and colored them in green which I also used to color the background of my watercolored panel. I splattered white opaque ink on the poinsettia cluster panel and on the trees and set them aside to dry. 

To make the snow globe I cut the watercolored panel using the outline die of the Round Snow Globe die set. I cut the frame of the globe from some warm gray and white cardstock and stacked them together. I also cut the base of the globe from the same warm gray cardstock. 

Next I cut the Festive Folk coverplate from white cardstock and adhered it on a white cardbase. I left the small die cut elements in their places as some texture in the background.  I then assembled the Round Snow Globe on the right side of the card. I added the pine trees to the globe, one of them using foam tape and placed a white deer in front of the trees which was cut using the Deer Coverplate die. The sentiment from Styled Christmas Sentiments set was heat embossed in gold and cut using the coordinating die. After I foam mounted the sentiment I added four Medallion Gold sequins to finish off my card.

That’s it from me today. Using various holiday die sets you can easily add festive feel to your card !

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed looking my card 🙂 !

Have a crafty day!

To make gift box images, I die cut squares from sand cardstock using Confetti Shapes Square Coordinating Dies. The bows were cut out from red glitter cardstock.

For the background, I cut out A2 sized panel with Rectangle A2 Nested Dies and added fun patterns using Holiday Border Dies. I adhered deep blue and red cardstock on the backside of that panel and foam mounted it on a white cardstock card base. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Boundless Poinsettias in Azurite on a piece of white cardstock and adhered to the blue glitter panel that was cut out with Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Dies. Lastly, all images were popped up onto the card with foam adhesive.

Teal Poinsettia Bouquet

Hi peeps. Happy Tuesday. Vera here today with more Christmas card to share. I actually hasn’t been able to craft much nowadays as my work schedule been so crazy that when I got home I just don’t have the energy to craft. But, I do feel the need to craft as this is my way to de-stress. So, this weekend, I really put aside time to just sit down and create. And, it felt good.

I decided o play with Poinsettia Bouquet and I am pretty happy with the way this card turned out.

To start, I stamped the image with Caviar ink pad and then colored it with Copic markers. I just love coloring Poinsettia in teal hues. Also, I have quite a bit of green markers that somehow I don’t use as often and I finally decided to show these markers some love and using them here to get some variation of green so the image don’t look so flat.

Once I am done with the coloring, I decided to add some more details with white gel pens as I feel it makes the Poinsettia more fun. Then I picked one of the sentiment from Merry Folk Sentiment and stamped it directly over the image using Caviar ink. And, since it is a Christmas card I just have to add some glimmer with shimmer marker on the sentiment as when it comes to Christmas card it just more fun to have some shimmer right?

I hope you can see the pretty shimmer on the sentiment. In person it really shimmer prettily as I layered the shimmer pretty thick. I hope you enjoy today’s card. How are you doing with your Christmas card stash? Mine is still growing but I think I should have pretty good stash this year. Just need to make some with traditional colors. Hah! Well peeps, that’s all for me today. Wishing you all a great day and let’s spread more kindness in this world.

New year card with blue Christmas balls

Hello, everyone! Anna here and today I’m sharing a holiday card with blue baubles.

I started by die cutting baubles using Confetti Shapes Circle Coordinating Dies from white cardstock. Then, I colored them with Cali Blue and Parisian Blue and stamped snowflakes from Blizzard Hugs on them with the same inks. The tops of the baubles were cut out from silver glitter cardstock. I decorated the Christmas balls with holly branches from Holly Bits. They were stamped with Red Sangria, Valentine Red, Spring Salad, Bright Fern and cut out using matching die.

For the pine sprigs, I ink blended Spring Salad and Matcha on a piece of white cardstock and cut out them with Pine Sprig Cover Die.

To make the background, I cut out A2 sized panel with Rectangle A2 Nested Dies and added fun patterns (on the top and on the bottom of the card) using Holiday Border Dies.

The sentiment from Easy Expressions Holiday stamp set was stamped in Noir and Valentine Red and cut out with Easy Expressions Holiday Coordinating Die.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great Friday!
