The first one is featuring Daisy Fields set. This set is a background stamp in 5.75″ by 5.75″size. But I used only a part of the image to embellish my card.
I started off by gold heat embossing the Daisy Fields on a vellum panel. I colored the image using Tombow brush markers on the back of the vellum. I then fussy cut a diagonal part of it which includes some full daisies connected with each other.
To create the background I ink blended Soft Garnet on the soft pink cardbase around the area where the flowers would be placed and splattered white opaque ink on it.
I stamped Daisy Close Up (Full View) on a white cardstock in Soft Garnet to do some no line coloring. I actually thought of colored pencils or Copic markers at first but changed my mind and colored the daisy with acrylic paint. I love the texture of it!
After I finished coloring the pink daisy, I set it aside to dry. I then made the butterfly. To do that I cut the Pop-Up Butterfly Monarch from white cardstock. I cut the wings two times each to stack them together. I heat embossed the butterfly in iridescent sparkle embossing powder. I mounted the panel with the daisy on a white cardbsae and foam mounted the sparkly monarch on it. The sentiment is from The Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0 set. I white heat embossed it on a piece of black cardstock, matted it with some soft pink panel and added it to the card. I finished off the card by scattering some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix like the first card.
Did you see the post where Effie introduced our new digital release? This release includes some gorgeous coverplate cut files. There are some new beautiful designs in the Digital category in our shop which aren’t mentioned in Effie’s post !!! Hope you check it out!!!
I cut the three layers of the cut files from Canson Mixed Media paper using my Scan N Cut. I then colored the Layers in Fuchsia, Peony and Wisteria Color Burst respectively. I colored the center part of the peony a little bit darker to show some depth and the leaves in Turquoise.
After the colored layers were dry I adhered them together and splattered pink, white and gold ink on it. I then ink blended the cardbase in Hollywood Star and Caribbean Turquoise to give the base layer some color of the flower and leaves. I also splattered gold ink on the cardbase and adhered the layered peony on it. For a more finished look I cut a frame using Double Stitched Rectangle dies from some textured soft pink cardstock and added it to the card.
Hi everyone. Vera here today to start your week with some fresh inspiration from The Ton.
Yesterday, Effie released some new digital cut files and I just had to play with them right away. I used my Brother Scan ‘N Cut to do the cards below.
Let’s start with our layerable Floral Bud coverplate file. This cut file has two cutting coverplate images that you can layer together. But, for my card I just used one layer.
I started by cutting the Floral Bud cover. Then using it as loose guidance, I dropped some alcohol pearl inks on Yupo paper and spread it over. Once I am happy with the color, I simply laid over a silver foil, rub on it and lifted it up. The foil sticks to the area that still semi wet, creating interesting pattern.
Next, simply add foam adhesives on the back of the floral bud frame and adhere it to the yupo paper. Then adhere the layered piece to the card base. For the sentiment, I used my favorite sentiment from Wishful Wildflowers set.
I simply cut out the floral elements from a piece of white cardstock and before lifting it up from the mat, I colored the pieces with various distress oxide ink pad. I love this tyle as I feel it ha a modern feeling and perfect for clean & simple card.
To finish, I simply stamped the sentiment from Loose Peonies set with Caviar ink pad. I love that I can make these cards quickly thanks to the digital cut files. You could use these files with Cricut and Silhouette as well. Fun, right?
Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s cards as much as I enjoy making it. That’s all from me today. May your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers….
Hello and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! I hope you’re enjoying the day today! I have a main project and a flash digital release. Be sure to scroll all the way down to see the new goodies! For my project today, I have a watercolored card using our Amazing Gardenia and Beautiful Branches set.
I started off by gold heat embossing the gardenia onto watercolor paper. After I die cut it using the coordinating die (which is still available but once it sells out, we will not be restocking!), I watercolored it using Peony and Sap Green Color Bursts.
Next, I used my electric cutting machine to cut out the shapes of my Beautiful Branches. You can find the SVG download here. **The Beautiful Branches download contains 2 cut files. The first file is the Placement Guide file which cuts out both branches on individual rectangles. You’re going to place these guides into your Misti to easily stamp or emboss your cut pieces.
The second file contains a cut file that only cuts out the shape of the two branches. Cut this file first if you want to stamp/emboss multiple cut pieces easily.
Once all my cutting and embossing was complete, I colored in the floral branch using Orchid and Indigo Color Bursts (and Sap Green and Prussian Blue for the leaves). For the smaller branch, I used Prussian Blue for the buds and Sap Green for the leaves.
Next, I created a 6 inch x 4.25 inch green cardstock panel. I also created a 4 inch x 2.5 inch white panel which I adhered onto the green panel. Then I popped up my gardenia and branches. For my sentiment, I white heat embossed the Mother’s Day sentiment in our Mini Holiday stamp set onto gray cardstock. Once embossed, I trimmed it into a narrow strip and popped it up onto my card. Lastly, I added some Medallion Gold sequins to add some a metallic details. I tucked some sequins behind my florals for more interest!
I hope you enjoyed this project! Let’s move on to see the new digital release! **No physical product will be shipped with our digital items**
Before you start watching the videos, today is the last day to enjoy our 30% promotion:
Let’s move onto our projects for the day!
For my first card, I created a simple and quick card using the larger multi step stamps in our Rose Wonderland set.
I stamped the foliage stamp in our Bright Emerald Dye Ink and the floral stamp in our Red Sangria Hybrid Ink. I did not use the third larger detail stamp for the florals/roses for this card. However, you can see the effect of the third stamp in this next photo (blue and purple cards):
Aren’t these cards lovely? And they’re so easy and quick to make (especially if you have a Misti)! Let’s move onto the second card!
For my next card, I used the smaller individual stamps to create a custom print. For the leaves and other foliage, I used our soft gray Crystal Pewter dye ink. For the florals, I used a combination of our Cali Blue and Azurite dye inks.
Once the stamping was complete, I trimmed the stamped panel to 4in x 5.25inches. Then I adhered that panel onto a side folding A2 base.
Next, I die cut our Hello Word Die three times on white cardstock and once with black cardstock. Then I layered/stacked the pieces to create my own sentiment embellishment. I layered the black piece on the bottom of my stacked sentiment making sure to offset it just a bit to create a shadow effect. Next, I glued down the hello onto the center of my card.
Then I white heat embossed the “just saying” portion of the sentiment (from the same Rose Wonderland Print set) onto black cardstock, cut it into a sentiment strip and popped it up on my card under the hello sentiment. Lastly, I added some glossy black sequins to complete my card!
I hope you enjoyed my projects and videos today! I love how easy it is to create with this Rose Wonderland set. Thanks for stopping by!!
Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here. Hopefully this post goes up without a hitch as today I will actually be on my way back from our vacation.
Hubby and I decided to go to Amsterdam to see their famous flower fields. It’s been on our bucket list to go to Keukenhof. With my mind filled with the thoughts of flowers and with the Netherlands where my mom used to live, I made this card below.
To start with, I colored a piece of Yupo paper with alcohol pearl inks. I really loving this technique to create soft, rainbow background in no time. Then I trim the panel into 3 section, 1 wide and 2 super skinny strip and adhere them to the card base.
Next, I worked on the flower. I used Beautiful Branches set. Simply stamp, color & die cut it using my Scan ‘n Cut machine. Arrange them on the card and adhere to the card base with foam adhesive.
Next, I stamp the sentiment using the lovely sentiment is from Coming Up Dahlias set. I love this wording. Finish by adding a couple dew drops. Have I mention how much I love using dew drops on my card? Hah…
Oh yeah, hopefully on this last pic you can see the pretty sheen from alcohol pearl inks. I sure hope my mom will love this card.
Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Wishing you all a lovely day. Cheer…..
Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!!
I have a card to share with you today that showcases the Wildflower Bouquet Builder stamp set! The set includes many different flowers so that you can design your own bouquet. However, I just used the largest image on this simple card.
I began by stamping the largest floral image from the Wildflower Bouquet Builder stamp set to the left of a panel of white cardstock with Caviar Ink. I colored the image with Copic markers and added some colored pencil details. I trimmed the left side of the panel down about 1/2″, stopping on each side of the leaves, then fussy cut around those. I trimmed a strip of black and white striped patterned paper and placed it behind the left side of the floral panel. I also stamped the sentiment and a couple of the bees included in the set with Caviar Ink. A sprinkling of Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix completes the card!
That’ll do it for me today!! Thanks for stopping by!!
