Hello everyone! TaeEun here today and I have four cards to share with you.
For my cards for today I used Rose Terrace Cling Background stamp as the main image, which I’ve been loving since I got it. This stamp can make a beautiful background, and there is a part of it which you can stamp as a standalone rose cluster with three gorgeous roses, if you mask off the other part. I’ve combined these two ways to make my cards.
Today’s cards are also featuring our new basic word dies. In the Fall Release in September 5 more basic word dies in beautiful scripty font have been added to our die collection. They are hugs, hello, happy birthday, congratulations and thank you, very useful sentiments for many occasions!
Now to my projects! Grab your coffee or tea and enjoy!
I played with my beloved alcohol inks again to create this loose look of my first card. At first I stamped the rose cluster part I mentioned above from the Rose Terrace Cling Background stamp on a piece of white cardstock to use it as my guide. I dripped alcohol inks onto the expected area for roses (Poppyfield, Sunshine yellow, Sunset orange) and leaves (Botanical, Citrus) on a glossy cardstock, and then added some droplets and splatters of Aqua. I let it aside for a while to dry and then stamped the rose cluster with an embossing ink and heat embossed it in gold. Unfortunately it wasn’t completely dry so that the gold embossing isn’t perfect. But I think it’s okay for a loose look :).
For the sentiment I die cut “thank” from the Thank you word dies from the alcohol ink panel. I then trimmed the panel down a bit and mounted it flat on a dark red card base. I took “you” from the Loose Peonies stamp set, gold heat embossed it on a vellum, punched a circle out and glued it on the card. The final touch was a few sequins from the Santa’s Sneeze Couture Mix and Glass Slippers Sequins.
For the rest of today’s cards I stamped the Rose Terrace Cling Background stamp in our Rose Gold Bangle pigment ink on some gray or white cardstock as background and let it dry. I then prepared the rose cluster as my focus in various ways.
For my second card I stamped the rose cluster using Spectrum Aqua Markers and a spray of pearlized water. I then fussy cut the roses and branches, which I stamped several times, and arranged them on the card as shown in the picture. I wanted the main image to stand out, so I took the hello die cut, heat embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder as my subtle sentiment. For some sparkle I scattered a few sequins from Glass Slippers Sequins Mix.
In this card the rose cluster was heat embossed with our Rose Gold embossing powder on some watercolor cardstock and colored using Zig markers. I colored the top and left parts of the card base directly using our Lofty Mint dye ink pad and then using embossing ink to clear heat emboss it. I then added the grey background panel with the Rose Terrace Cling Background in Rose Gold Bangle pigment ink and foam mounted a thin strip of some mint glitter paper. The fussy cut rose cluster was mounted using some foam adhesive as well. The hello was die cut three times from a gray cardstock and once from the mint glitter paper. I stack them up with the mint glitter sentiment slightly offset. The sequins I used here are from Glass Slippers, Garden at Dusk and I Dream in Peach Couture Mix.
I tried to catch the shine of our Rose Gold Bangle pigment ink in my close-up picture, which wasn’t that easy . I hope you can guess the metallic shine here!
The rose cluster of my last card for today was heat embossed in Rose Gold embossing powder on a gray cardstock. I fussy cut it and mounted it on the card using foam adhesive in upper part and flat in lower part. The “birthday” from happy birthday word dies was cut two times from some gray cardstock and once out of navy cardstock and glued together. The navy die cut was adhered slightly offset. “HAPPY” from the Basic Labels stamp set was heat embossed in Rose Gold embossing powder. To finish off I added three clear gems.
That’s it from me today. I hope you enjoyed seeing my cards and got some inspiration for your own projects!!!
Wishing you all a good start into the week!
