Have The Best Day Ever

Hi everyone. Vera here. The weather been so lovely here in Texas that I can’t help creating a project with spring feeling to it.

For my card today, I just had to reach this beautiful oldie but goody cover plate, called Best Day Ever. I feel like I didn’t give this cover plate enough love & it’s time to do something about it, because it really is such a pretty & delicate design. 🙂

I am currently loving playing with alcohol pearl ink and just couldn’t resist to use it to create a pretty, colorful background for this card. I mean, how pretty is this rainbow background?

I love that you don’t have to have it look perfect. I pretty much just go back and forth a few times and that’s it. I used Yupo paper here and it helps in creating the softer color.

Next, I die cut the design and simply adhere it directly on top of the Yupo paper, trim them to be slightly smaller than the card base.

I was going to add butterfly to complete the card, but then I just have to use my favorite birdies from Nesting Peonies set.

I really love the way this card turned out. It’s always give me satisfaction when a card turned out exactly the way I envisioned it. Cause you know that’s not always the case. Hah…

I hope you enjoy today’s card as much as I enjoy making it. I wish you a beautiful weather and a beautiful day. Cheers…

Daisy Fields – Sending You Hugs

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate!!

I have a card to share with you today that features the stunning Daisy Fields stamp! This is a large 5.75″ x 5.75″ background stamp and it’s so much fun to color. In fact, I just started on one with Copics. For this one, I used watercolor markers.

daisy-fields-4

I made a square 5.5″ x 5.5″ card…I just can’t bear to cut much of it off!! I started by stamping the Daisy Fields image onto Bristol paper and white heat embossing it. I colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers and then trimmed it down a little smaller than 5.5″ x 5.5′. I die-cut “hugs” from the watercolored panel using a die from the Love & Hugs Word Plate Dies. “Sending you”, from Basic Banners, was white heat embossed onto a strip of blue cardstock and adhered over the negative die-cut. I adhered the panel to blue cardstock in the same color as the sentiment strip. A few sequins from the Blue Lagoon Couture Mix were the finishing touch.

I started by stamping beautiful images onto a piece of watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed them in Rose Gold. I colored all flowers with Holbein watercolors.
I then cut out a kraft panel using Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small), stamped Delicate Polka Dots onto it and heat embossed them in white.

Next, I ink blended Ballet Slippers, stamped a label from Modern Labels onto it and heat embossed in Rose Gold. I stamped a sentiment from Today’s Cosmos in Noir. I then assembled the card together.
Lastly, I embellished my card using Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

For my second card, I stamped a female figure from City Girls: Spring Smiles on a white cardstock with Caviar, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut it.

To create the background, I ink blended Hollywood Star, Lemon Drop and Soft Garden on an A2 sized white cardstock. I then made a white panel using Butterfly Swirl Die. I adhered the first panel on a white card base and foam mounted the second panel on it.

Photo taken against our Gray Stone Backdrop Board

Hello and welcome back, everyone! I had to take a bit of a break for about a month but I’m back from my hiatus and will be posting more frequently going forward!

For my project today, I created a watercolored floral card using our new Daisy Fields stamp. This is our newest background stamp from our Spring 2019 Collection.

I started off by white heat embossing this photopolymer background stamp onto watercolor paper. Then I did some wet on wet watercoloring with some Ken Oliver Color Bursts. For the petals, I used Cadmium Red. For the centers, I used Burnt Umber and then put a layer of Wisteria over the brown to give the center a warmer tone. For the largest daisy only, I added some additional detailing using a Geranium Red Zig Marker.

Once the largest daisy was colored and detailed, I did some quick watercoloring with the rest of the daisies on the panel. I did not add the zig marker detailing to the smaller daisies because they’re not too large and looked perfectly fine with the single layer of color. Once the petals were all colored, I added some Lime Color Burst to the leaves and stems. The rest of the daisy centers were colored using the Burnt Umber and Wisteria combination.

Once my watercoloring was complete, I adhered my panel onto a side folding A2 base. Then I created my sentiment strip by white heat embossing the Congratulations stamp (from our City Girls: Spring Smiles set) onto black cardstock. Once trimmed, I popped it up onto my panel and then finalized my card by adding three Glass Slippers sequins around my sentiment.

Fantastic Feathers

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a card showcasing Fantastic Feathers set from Spring 2019 Release. Fantastic Feathers  is a large stamp set with a size of 8.75 x 12 inches. With this set you can create a beautiful layered peacock in your favorite color combination.

I wanted to represent a majestic white peacock in my card today.

Tt0415 1 WM

I started off by white heat embossing the base layer of the tail and body of the peacock on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I then colored the background in purple and teal using Turquoise and Orchid Color Burst.

The outer layer of the eye of the feathers and the second layer of the body were heat embossed in Rose Gold. I then stamped the second layer of the eye of the feathers and the root of the tail in Iris Blooms to match with the background color. The center of the eye of the feathers was heat embossed in Copper. I stamped the legs in Aspen Cocoa and Dark Roast.

Tt0415 CU3 WM new

After the peacock was finished I cut the whole panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and then a circle frame from the panel using Double Stitched Circle dies to add my sentiment. I stamped “magnificent” in Noir on a separate piece of white cardstock. I placed the stamp in a certain curve to fit it on the circle frame. I adhered Glossy Fine Transparent adhesive glitter paper on it to add some sparkle and fussy cut the sentiment. The small sentiments were stamped in black on the circle frame.

Tt0415 CU1 WMx

I mounted the panel on a white cardbase. The circle frame was foam mounted and the gilttery “magnificent” was added on it using some foam adhesives. I added Crystal Stickles on the center of the eye of the feathers and scattered some Smoked Amethyst and Smoked Emerald sparkling clear sequins to finish off my card.

That’s it from my side! Hope you enjoyed looking my card today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Beautiful Branches

Hi peeps! How’ it going? Phew… this past weekend I went for a much needed crafty retreat. There were close to 50 girls and let me tell you, when that many girls gather, lack of sleep going to happen.

Crafting happened, too though not too much for me. Hah… too busy chatting with everyone. It’s always nice to meet in person friends that you’ve been interacting with online and to catch up with old friends.

Well, this past weekend, The Ton also had an awesome mini release. I was playing with the sets before the trip, which is a good thing, because after the trip, I got sick and didn’t really have time to create.

Anyway, here’s a card that I made using the new Beautiful Branches.

IMG2866.1
I just recently got some alcohol pearl ink and was creating a bunch of rainbow background. One of them I used on my card HERE and the other part I used on this card. The alcohol ink dries quickly, which is awesome, as I am not very patient in waiting for ink to dry. I simply trim a small part and adhere it to my card base.

Next, I stamp and color this beautiful flowering branch with Caviar ink pad and then adhere it to the card with foam adhesive. I always like a bit of dimension on my card.
IMG2866.2

Next, I stamp the many thanks sentiment from Peony Notes Bundle set and finish the card by adding some Fairy Pink Sparkling clear sequins. I love the way this card turned out as I do love card with lots of white space.

I think the rainbow strip compliment the flowering branch beautifully, don’t you think?

IMG2866.3
Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Thank you for stopping by here and may your mid week be a wonderful one. Cheers….

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! Have you hopped along for The Ton’s Spring 2019 Release Blog Hop? So many talented designers and so much inspiration!!

I have used one of the smaller sets from the release to create a trio of thank you cards.

I often stamp several panels with the same stamp set while I have it positioned in my MISTI. I usually stamp it with different inks & embossing powders, so I can use different mediums to color them.

Beautiful-Branches-1

I used the Beautiful Branches stamp set for all three of these cards. Here’s the first one…

Beautiful-Branches-2

I began by stamping Beautiful Branches toward the top and bottom of a panel of white cardstock with Caviar Ink and colored them with Copic markers. I added some detail for the stamen with a yellow gel pen. The sentiment, from the Toned Hearts stamp set, was also stamped in the center of the branches. The panel was trimmed slightly at the top and bottom and matted with light blue cardstock. A sprinkling of Blue Ice Couture Mix was the finishing touch!

Beautiful-Branches-3

Beautiful-Branches-4

The second cards was created the same way, except the Beautiful Branches was white heat embossed and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.

Beautiful-Branches-5

For this one, the sentiment was white heat embossed onto purple cardstock and popped up onto foam adhesive. I mixed sequins from Amethyst Quartz and Violet Sprinkle Couture Mixes to find the perfect shades.

Beautiful-Branches-6Beautiful-Branches-7

My third and final card was gold heat embossed

Beautiful-Branches-8

This one was also colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. A sprinkling of Medallion Gold sequins is a nice accent to the gold heat embossing.

Beautiful-Branches-9Beautiful-Branches-91

Now I have three thank you cards to add to my stash!! Do you have a favorite?

Thanks for stopping by today!! I’ll see you soon!!
