Treat Yourself

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with two cards saying “Treat Yo Self”.

I used two chic and classy stamp sets from our new Release: City Girls (Retail Therapy) and Born Classy and their coordinating dies. I know many of you fell in love with this unique sets like me :)!

On the first card I’ve created a night city scene with three ladies enjoying their free time shopping and sightseeing. I started off by making the night sky with city light. I blended Lemon Drop, Coralline hybrid, Parisian Blue, Iris Blooms and Noir Couture colors, after I masked one third of the A2 watercolor panel. Some splatters using silver watercolor were added and some dots using gel pens. I then stamped the skyline of the city from the Vogue Skies stamp set in Noir dye ink and then once more in embossing ink to clear heat emboss it. For the walkway I stamped the bottom part of the Scenes: Dept. Store cling background stamp in Crystal Pewter. I watercolored the walkway in silver to give it some shimmer and added thin silver glitter tape underneath the buildings. I mounted the front panel on the card base using some foam adhesive.

The ladies, the little dog and the bags from the City Girls (Retail Therapy) stamp set were stamped using our copic-friendly Caviar hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers and cut using Coordinating dies. I glued two ladies and the little dog flat on the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, which I silver heat embossed on some purple cardstock and cut into a banner. The sentiment was foam mounted on the card with a lady.

To make my second card I started out by stamping the flowers and greenery from Mini Wild Florals stamp set along the diagonal of the front panel. I used Soft Garnet, Orchid Crush and Rose Quartz for the flowers, Soft Garden, Bright Ememrald and Crystal Pewter for the greenery. I then added tiny flowers from Floral World stamp set in Iris Blooms as filler. I die cut the lady from the Born Classy stamp set using coordinating die out of the front panel and then stamped the lady in Orchid Crush on the die cut. I colored her skin and hair using Copic markers. To assemble the card I adhered thin strip of purple cardstock on both sides of my card base, the front panel flat on it and then foam mounted the lady in place. After I added shimmer on her hair and dress using Wink of Stella,I glued the silver heat embossed vellum part on the dress. The sentiments are from City Girls (Retail Therapy). To finish off I scattered some sequins from the Glass Slippers sequins mix.

I have one more picture to share with you. This is the second card before I added the vellum part. I was having a hard time deciding with or without…, till my  4 year old girl insisted on the version with the vellum layer :). I can’t say which one is more appealing to me. I actually like both of them. What do you think?

    Both cards are great, but I really love the second card with the floral design, and the Born Classy set.

    I love both versions. But I have to say, always listen to the child. The vellum adds to the design and your daughter could see that. When I need an opinion on what to wear I ask my 5 and 7 year old grandkids. They always come up with great ideas.

    Well, I think both versions of your 2nd card are stunning, but I do prefer the vellum…the details add so much to your design! Beautiful color palette on the flowers, too! I also love how you created your scene on the first card, and your blended sky is so lovely!
    You never cease to amaze me with your creativity, TaeEun…your cards are just beautiful!
