Dahlia Close Up

Hello and happy Friday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with two cards made using Dahlia Close Up cling stamp. I’ve been seeing many fabulous creations using this stamp on social media and I love this stamp set too like you all 🙂 !

On the first card I used the Dahlia Close Up as the background for my main actress from Born Classy stamp set and on the second card I took the big dahlia as my main image.

This is my first card!

To start off I stamped the Dahlia Close Up in embossing ink on a glossy cardstock and heat embossed it in silver. I dripped pink alcohol inks on it (I used Raspberry, Flamingo, Shell pink and blending solution), to move the ink I tilted the paper or blew through a straw. After done with coloring I went with a silver gel pen over the image lines to cover the ink on the heat embossing. The lady from Born Classy was stamped in Cavier hybrid ink on some white cardstock and colored with Copics. I then fussy cut the lady. I cut the image along the waist line as I wanted the background to peek through the vellum gown. I stamped the lady and the over layer of the gown on a vellum. I then fussy cut the gown part only to glue them on the lady after I silver heat embossed the sparkle.

I added a strip of thin Black Glitter Tape on the right edge of my card base, glued the colored panel with dahlia flat on it and added the lady. I gave her a glass of champagne with lots of glitter and shine of clear glitter pen and clear Pico Embellisher.

The sentiment is from Born Classy stamp set as well. I stamped it in Noir on some white cardstock and heat embossed it clear. I cut it in a banner, layered with a cardstock covered with black Glitter Tape and foam mounted it on the card. To finish off I scattered a few tiny flowers from Candy cane Garden and Cotton Candy Puff Couture Mixes.

My second card was started with a trial to color silver heat embossed Dahlia Close Up on a black cardstock using Pearl colors. I used red violet and blue pearl. After coloring I cut the panel with my cutting machine using a cutting file I made for the shape as shown in the picture and foam mounted it on my card base. On the card base I splattered the same pearl colors and black ink. I made one more cutting file with similar wavy line for the sentiment, cut it from a clear acetate sheet and silver heat embossed the sentiment from The New Pretty on it. I added silver line on the edge using Sharpie pen and glued it on the card.

The sequins I used are from Garden at Dusk, Midnight Frost Couture Mixes and Glass Slippers sequins. I added three Silver Dew Drops and finished off the card.

    Just wondering if we will ever see you at any of the stamp and scrapbook shows? Going to one in July in Monroeville, PA I would love to see these products in a booth!

    Two fabulous cards TaeEun. That Dahlia stamp is so large and great for a background or as you say the focus of the card. I love the addition of the pretty lady with her vellum overgown and the alcohol inks are such a beautiful colour, then the second with the red and blue pearl colours and the sweet scallops you have cut finishing with the scalloped acrylic sentiment topper. Such clever designs as usual. x

    Absolutely gorgeous cards, TaeEun! I love how you created your background and used vellum on the first one, and your coloring on the 2nd card is exquisite! Stunning work, as always!
