Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with two soft floral cards.
For the first card I combined Watercolor Wreaths and Peony Terrace Cling background stamp as they have the same watercolor look. For my second card I created a clean and dreamy composition of florals and greenery using City Girls Book Life, Wild Peonies and Mini Wild Florals stamp sets.
Let’s take a look at my cards :)!
To create my first card I started by die cutting the floral wreath from Watercolor Wreath from a Bristol Smooth paper panel using coordinating die. I then taped the negative panel together to heat emboss the Peony Terrace on it in some white pearl embossing powder. I then stamped the floral wreath from Watercolor Wreath using Aquamarkers on the positive die cut. I colored the flowers on the stamp in pink or yellow and the leaves in green and stamped it. I then added details using Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment in Noir is from Penned Sentiments set which was stamped on a silver heat embossed banner from Basic Banners. I die cut the banner using coordinating die. To assemble my card I foam mounted the negative panel on a gray cardbase and placed the wreath, first a fun foam die cut and then the colored die cut. The fun foam is thicker than my foam adhesive, so that the wreath is popped up slightly over the front panel. I then adhered the banner. To finish off I went over the flowers with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker and added a few Glass Slippers Round Confetti around the wreath.
You can see the shimmer on the Peony Terrace background and the glitter on the wreath better in close up picture below.
My second card was made, inspired by the sentiment from Sunnies set. “You wake up fabulous.” Hope you can see what I wanted to represent 🙂 .
To start off I stamped small greenery stamps from Wild Peonies and Mini Wild Florals stamp sets on a A2 sized white cardstock. The colors I used are Caribbean Turquoise, Bright Emerald, Cobalt Breeze and Ocean Teal.. I then stamped the lady from Born Classy in Caviar Hybrid ink on that panel and die cut it using coordinating die. I colored her with Copic markers. I added Ocean Teal on the bottom edge of the front panel by blending. I stamped the flower bouquet from City Girls Book Life set on a separate white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers as well and die cut it with coordinating die. I then cut the part with two hands out and glued the bouquet on the hair of the lady. The sentiment from Sunnies was gold heat embossed on a strip of vellum. I adhered both ends of the vellum strip on the back of the front panel and mounted the panel flat on a white cardbase. The lady was foam mounted onto her place on the front panel. A coat of glitter was added on the flower bouquet and on the dress using Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker. To finish off I added some sequins from Smoked Emerald Sparkling Clear Sequins mix.
And here are both cards together. Btw the backdrop board I used is called Bokeh Glow!

Oh my, these are stunning!
Wow, these are just stunning!
Two gorgeous cards TaeEun and the wreath is very pretty and is complemented beautifully by the background pearl embossed leaves, and there is a lot of dimension too. The second is a great design idea adding the flowers to the head of the lady like a big picture hat, and love the blue tones on the foliage along the bottom and on the dress of the lady. A great sentiment too. x
oh my goodness TaeEun! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful cards! hmmm…white pearl emboss power…that’s new to me. I am in love with the emboss background on your first card. You got me hooked…I must now search and purchase for myself 🙂 I love the 2nd card too! Pretty colours for the flowers. I love how you use the blue tones. Thank you so much for sharing!
Here I thought it was gray! It’s that lovely pearl embossing! Gorgeous … and I HAVE IT!! Thanks, TaeEun … gorgeous, as always!
