  2. Svitlana Shayevich 
  3. Taheerah Atchia
  4. Olga Matyushevskaya

For my first two projects, I used our GWP (Gift with Purchase) Daisy Duet set. I cannot stress how much I love coloring this stamp. The size of the blooms are really wonderful. So for today’s projects featuring this large image, I went with a cool and warm color palette to showcase how amazing this floral stamp is.

For my first card, I did some masking (created with the coordinating die) and then rose gold embossed an entire panel using the large Daisy Duet image onto watercolor paper (Canson XL 140LB). I created my own background that is ready for watercoloring. I used my Color Bursts for this card (Lemon Yellow, Marigold, Sap Green and Terre Vert).

I started off by painting a base layer of Lemon Yellow onto my daisies. Then I added a second layer of color using my Marigold CBs but I went back in and added a more concentrated amount of Marigold to the inner petals. Next, I finished my painting by watercoloring my leaves – first layer of Sap Green, then Terre Vert. Next I took the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles (Small) set and die cut my panel and then adhered it to a side folding A2 base using strong double sided adhesive sheets.

Next I die cut my thank you sentiment from our Bold General Greetings Word Plate Die set. Using the negative space as a guide, I popped up my sentiment onto my card using pop up squares. Next, I added a white heat embossed sentiment strip (Peony Notes) to my card. Lastly, I embellished my card using our Clear Rhinestones.

For my next card, I masked and rose gold embossed my Daisy Duet the same way as my first card.

However, I didn’t emboss the entire panel. I left about a third of the panel unembossed for my sentiment. I used my Shinhan watercolors for this card. Next I painted my daisies using a combination of blues and purple (Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Deep and Permanent Violet). For my leaves, I used a combination of Gray and Neutral Tint.

Once my florals were painted, I added shading to the areas surrounding my clusters using my Indigo paint. Once my panel was dried, I rose gold embossed the thanks sentiment (Peony Notes) and added stitching to the edges of my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) set. Lastly, I added our Clear Rhinestones to further embellish my card.

I hope you all liked my cards! Thank you so much for joining us these last couple of weeks to celebrate this milestone with us. As we go into our fourth year, I will continue to strive to bring you all fabulous, quality designs and products.

hello folk hummingbird

Photo taken against our Gray Noise and White Paint Backdrop Boards

For my first card, I used our Sweet Folk Hummingbird set and Bold General Greetings Die Word Plates.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing the tulip cluster from our Sweet Folk Hummingbird set at the top and bottom edges of my watercolor paper. For the bird, I stamped on a separate piece of watercolor paper. Then I gave my florals a base layer of color using my Color Bursts (Marigold and Lemon Yellow). I detailed my tulips with my zig markers (Geranium Red, Scarlet Red and Bright Yellow).  I also added a blue outline to my florals using some Ultramarine Blue Color bursts. For my hummingbird, I quickly colored this little guy with my zig markers (May Green, Geranium Red and Dark Brown).

Next I die cut my  watercolored panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles (Small) set. I also die cut my hummingbird at the same time. Next, I die cut my sentiment with my “hello” word plate and then blended some Bright Fern Dye Ink to the bottom half of the word. Finally, I assembled my card by adhering my painted panel onto a side folding A2 base. Then I popped up my sentiment, sentiment strip (white heat embossed onto black cardstock – sentiment is from Sweet Folk Hummingbird) and bird. Lastly, I added our Clear Rhinestones around my sentiment.

My next card was VERY easy to make! I simply stamped our Riotous Wildflowers background stamp onto cardstock, colored it in using zig markers (no special shading), stamped the sentiment from our Seriously Amazing Sentiment set (Noir Dye Ink), added stitching to the edges of the panel and adhered it onto a base. Done!

blue painted peonies

Photo taken against our Gray Noise and White Paint Backdrop Boards

For my last card, I used our Painted Peonies. I stamped out two of the clusters in the corners of an A2 cardstock panel (I saved this panel for the next step). I used our Cali Blue, Cobalt Breeze and Parisian Blue Dye Ink. For the leaves, I used Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. Then I die cut both clusters using the coordinating die.

Next I blended the corner edges of the panel using our Caribbean Turquoise Dye Ink. Then I blended some of our Noir Dye Ink with water and splattered a bit of the ink onto my blended die cut panel. Once the panel was dry, I adhered it onto a side folding A2 base. Then I popped up my clusters in their respective negative areas on the base (this way you use the positive and negative spaces of the cardstock while stamping leaving no waste or scraps!).

For my sentiment, I started off my heat embossing a portion of a piece of black cardstock using silver glitter embossing powder. Then I die cut my hello word plate from this panel but I made sure that the embossed portion covered only half of my sentiment. Next I popped up my glittery, two toned sentiment onto the middle portion of my card. Lastly, I embellished my card using our Silver Dew Drops.

I made four cards for today’s mini hop!

For my first two cards, I used our layered cluster Painted Peonies set.

painted peonies simple

My first card is probably the simplest card that I’ve made for this release. I simply stamped the cluster layers in using our Ruby and Crystal Garden (Soft Garden + Bright) Collection layering inks and then stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink. Voila! Easy, CAS and effortlessly gorgeous card DONE!

woodgrain painted peonies

For my next card, I stamped my Painted Peony cluster in the same inks as my previous card.

After I stamped the cluster, I die cut the entire image using the coordinating die. Next I stamped my Buildable Woodgrain background using our Cocoa Collection layering inks. Then I die cut a stitched border from my woodgrain panel using the first and second largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangles Die Set (large). I adhered the inner panel directly onto a side folding A2 base and popped up the border.

Next I took a panel that I created from our Glossy Fine Glitter Gold adhesive paper and third largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Die Set (small) and adhered this to the center of my woodgrain panel. Next I popped up my Painted Peonies cluster onto the glitter piece and then added my sentiment (from our Coming Up Daisies set) strip right on top of the cluster. Lastly, I embellished my card using our Clear Dew Dropshaute gala birds

For my next card, I used our Haute Gala Dress set again! I couldn’t stay away! This time I went in a totally different direction from yesterday’s projects. For today, I created an actual scene using our Autumn Wishes set (which has adorable bird images and gorgeous branch clusters). I went for a Cinderella-like theme for this card.  I probably should have colored her dress in blue but I had already heat embossed the image at this point. Also, by not coming in the dress, I kept this card fairly CAS.

I started off by stamping the dress image onto regular cardstock in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I immediately heat embossed the dress details using gold glitter embossing powder. Next, I colored in the image using zig markers (Flesh Color, Blush, Brown).  Then I die cut the image using the coordinating die.

Then I stamped the large leaf cluster and birds from our Autumn Wishes set on cardstock with our Noir Dye Ink. I also colored these images in with zig markers (May Green, Geranium Red, Green Shadow, Oatmeal, Haze Blue and Deep Green). Once colored, I die cut the cluster and birds. Then I stamped our City Buildings background stamp on cardstock using our Light Onyx Dye Ink.

Then I assembled my card by popping up my Haute Gala gal onto the City Buildings panel. Then I popped up the cluster and the birds around my gal. I made sure to adhere one of the birds on the gal giving this card a hint of whimsy. Lastly, I tamped the sentiment onto black cardstock using our Hampton White Pigment Ink and popped it up onto my card.

galaxy daisies

For my last card, I used our Fresh Cut Daisies Coordinating Outlines set.

I started off by heat embossing the entire sheet of stamps using our Rose Gold Embossing Powder.  I also stamped three stems in the vase. Then I watercolored the images using Color Burst watercolor powders. For the daisies, I used a combination of Marigold and Gamboge. For the leaves, I used Sap Green, Lime Green and Terre Vert. For the jar/vase, I used Ultramarine Blue.

Once I finished painting the images, I die cut everything using the coordinating dies. Next I I created my watercolored background on watercolor paper (Canson XL 140LB) using a combination of Prussian Blue and Indigo and black for the base.

Once my panel was dry (I expedited the drying process with my heat tool), I assembled the florals and jar. Next I stamped and popped up the sentiment (stamped in our Hampton White Pigment ink on black cardstock). Lastly, I added our Clear Dew Drops as embellishments.

I hope you all liked my cards! Be sure to join us back here tomorrow (and everyday until January 26) to continue celebrating our Third Anniversary!

It’s feathers galore today! I have been contemplating adding real feathers as embellishments to my projects for a while now because of the amazing dimension that you get from them. I finally decided that it was time. They’re such a fun and whimsical accessory to embellish your projects with.  There’s nothing like a gorgeous feather that screams handmade chic!

For my first two cards, I featured our new and fabulous Haute Gala Dress.

I started off by stamping our Haute Gala Dress gal onto white cardstock with our crisp black Noir Dye Ink. Then I colored her in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Tip markers (Flesh, Blush, Light Gray, Pale Gray, Dark Brown). Next I heat embossed the glitter detailing on her dress which is a separate stamp in this set. I used silver glitter embossing powder for this element to give the card a bit of bling. Once I was done coloring and embossing this image, I use the coordinating die to cut her out.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

Next I stamped our lovely Peony Notes on two separate pieces of cardstock. For my peony florals, I used Rose Quartz, a secret ink color for my midtone hue (this gorgeous pink will debut next month for our new ink release) and Pink Derby Dye inks. For my foliage, I used Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz Dye Inks. Next I stamped the sentiment from the same Haute Gala Dress set onto the floral panel with our Noir Dye Ink. Once I finished stamping, I die cut the other floral cluster using the coordinating die.

Finally I began to assemble my card starting with my Peony Notes non die cut panel and feathers. I used a combination of our Mint and White Simple feathers for this card. I adhered my feathers down using tape and/or liquid adhesive. I made sure the feathers were wispy and delicate.  Next I popped up my Haute Gala Gal onto the panel.  Then I popped up my die cut Peony Notes cluster at the bottom edge of my project. For the last touch, I added a 1cm Clear Glass Heart Gem (smaller heart gem) above my sentiment which I adhered using Glue Dots.

For my next card I colored in my Haute Gala Gal using the same zig markers from my previous project. The only difference for this card was that I only partially stamped this gal because I really only needed the top half of the image.

Once I colored her in, I used the coordinating die to cut her out. Then I trimmed the portion of the dress so that it tapered down a bit. Next I stamped our Riotous Wildflowers on cardstock in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of white cardstock. Next I double mounted my sentiment strip on an additional strip of black cardstock and then finally a strip of gorgeous silver glitter adhesive paper. I adhered my sentiment onto my Riotous Wildflower panel by peeling the protective backing off the sliver glitter paper.

Next I adhered three of our White Simple feathers together with tape. Then I adhered my feather bundle behind my gal. Next I started building her dress using White Simple, Tawny Simple, Orange Fine and Natural Fawn Feathers. I used liquid adhesive to adhere everything in place. One my dress was complete, I added a mix of our new Square Glass Gems to embellish my card.

tulips feathers

Photo taken against our White Bokeh and Smooth White Wood Backdrop Boards

For my last project, I used our Loose Tulips and Buildable Woodgrain stamps.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing my tulip images using our Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Then I watercolored everything using Color Bursts (Peony, Lemon Yellow, Sap Green and Terre Vert). Next I die cut everything using the coordinating dies.

Then I stamped my buildable woodgrain using our Found Topaz, Aspen Cocoa and Dark Roast Dye Inks. I finally used the plank stamp (3 straight line stamp) in this set for a project and I totally love the look behind my bouquet of tulips!

tulips feathers2

Next I added stitching to the edges of my woodgrain panel and added a die cut window at the same time using the largest and third largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. Finally, I assembled my card using our new Fine Green and Blue long feathers. For my tulips, leaves and stems, I popped up everything that was above my wood panel. If one of the elements was above the feathers, I just applied liquid adhesive to adhere them down. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment (from our Sweet Folk Hummingbird set) onto black cardstock using our Hampton White Pigment Ink.

One tip for using feathers on your projects is to plan your arrangement or placement in advance. Then adhere everything down once you know where everything is going to be placed. This will make your crafting life much easier.

I hope you all liked my cards! Be sure to join us back here tomorrow (and everyday until January 26) to continue celebrating our Third Anniversary!

For my projects today, I created four cards using our new Coming Up Daisies cluster stamp!

zig coming up daisies

Photo taken against our White Marble and Smooth White Wood Backdrop Boards

For my first card, I did some watercoloring with zig markers.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by stamping the cluster image onto mixed media paper. I had a whole pad lying around so I decided to try watercoloring on this paper. I didn’t use too much water while painting this project so there was minimal warping even though the paper was somewhat light (lighter than cardstock!).

zig coming up daisies 2

For my daisies, I used Carmine and Wine Red Zig Markers. For my foliage, I used a combination of Emerald Green, Green and Marine Green Zig Markers. Once I finished painting my daisies, I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink. Next I trimmed my panel and then adhered it onto a side folding A2 base. Lastly, I embellished my project using our delicate Clear Rhinestones.

pink coming up daisies

For my next card, I used the large Coming Up Daisy cluster by embossing the corners of my watercolor panel. I embossed the cluster using our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I loosely watercolored the images using my Holbein watercolors (Opera, Permanent Green #1 and Viridian Hue).

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

Once my panel was dry, I die cut the ornate window using our Modern Labels coordinating dies. I also added stitching to the edges of my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large set. Next I heat embossed the sentiment (Painted Peonies) in our Rose Gold powder. I then adhered the die cut shape/label onto a side folding A2 base and popped up the painted panel. Lastly, I embellished my project using our Clear Dew Drops.

For my next two projects, I did some VERY loose watercoloring. I will be totally honest here: these two panels were originally stamped as testers! I had no intention of actually turning them into cards but they were on my desk and I really hate waste… I have so many bits and pieces of stamped images and unfinished panels on my desk that I have vowed to start finishing my projects as I go (even if it kills me!!).

So I grabbed this stamped panel (I originally stamped the image onto watercolor cardstock using our Noir Dye Ink). Then proceeded to watercolor with my Color Bursts. For this card, I used a combination of Tangerine, Cadmium Red, Gamboge, Sap Green and Yellow Ochre. Once I finished painting in the cluster, I created a mask of the image on printer paper using the coordinating die. Then I temporarily adhered my mask onto the image and proceeded to splatter Merlot Color Bursts on negative areas for interest.

Once the panel was dry, I added stitching to my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large set. Then, I stamped my sentiment onto dark gray cardstock using our Hampton White Pigment Ink. Lastly, I trimmed my sentiment tag and popped it up onto my finished project.

For my pink card, I used the same technique as the tangerine version. The only difference is the colors that I used. For this project, I used a combination of Peony, Sap Green and Terre Vert Color Bursts.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 6.19.30 AM.png

For my first card, I started off by white heat embossing the background image onto watercolor paper (Canson XL 1140 lb watercolor paper). Then I painted in the images using Color Bursts (Fuchsia, Sap Green, Gamboge) using the wet on wet watercoloring technique.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

After I finished painting the panel, I added stitching to the edges of the panel using the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles Large set. Then I die cut a window using the smallest die in this Double Stitched Rectangles set.  Once I finished my die cutting, I blended some ink (Soft Garden and Bright Fern) halfway up the negative space/window of my top folding A2 cardbase. Finally, I popped up my die cut panel onto the base using dimensional tape and added Clear Rhinestones for a subtle and delicate finish.

For my next card, I heat embossed the Riotous Wildflowers image onto watercolor cardstock using our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored the image using Color Bursts (Indigo, Terre Vert, Marsala).

Once I finished painting the panel, I added stitching to the edges of my panel using the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles Large set. At the same time, I die cut my sentiment using our new Bold General Greetings Word Plate Dies.

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 6.39.23 AM

Photo taken with our White Paint Backdrop Board

I only used the negative space for my sentiment here (I used the die cut letters in the next card). Next I took a side folding A2 base and adhered some gorgeous Pink Holographic Adhesive Paper to the base where the sentiment will cover. Lastly, I adhered the panel onto the base!

For my last card today, I made a quick card using the left over die cut letters from my previous card.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by white heat embossing the Riotous Wildflowers onto watercolor cardstock. Then I created a soft watercolored frame on my panel using Indigo and Terre Vert Color Bursts. I used the same colors from the previous card/die cut letters to ensure that that the project as a whole was cohesive.

Once the panel was dry, I added stitching to the edges of the panel for interest. Lastly. I popped up my letters (starting with the middle letters) using tiny foam squares and then added our Clear Dew drops.

I hope you all liked my cards! Be sure to join us back here tomorrow (and everyday until January 26) to continue celebrating our Third Anniversary!

daisy duet hop 1-19

For today’s project, I used our new Daisy Duet set. This 4×6 set features two daisies for a large stamped impression making it a really great image to practice coloring on.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing the large image onto watercolor paper (Canson XL 140lb) using our Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Then I watercolored the image using Color Burst powders. For the petals, I used a combination of Fuchsia and Merlot. I also added a darker red to add shading to my daisy petals. I combined several hues to obtain the dark red shade but I cannot recall what I mixed… Sorry!!

daisy duet hop 1-19 3

Here is a WIP photo of daisies. I had worked on a similar piece a few days ago with a different background color.

daisy duet hop 1-19 2

For the leaves, I use a mixture of Lime Green and Terre Vert Color Bursts. I also added a bit of Gamboge to add a bit of warmth to my background. Once I finished painting my image and background, I cut out a mask on printer paper for my daisies using the coordinating die. I temporarily adhered it to my painted image and splattered on some Fuchsia watercolor to the area surrounding my daisies.

Next, I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink and trimmed my panel to 5.5 x 4 inches. I took a top folding horizontal A2 cardbase and adhered Rose Gold Burnished Foil Tape to the top and bottom edges for a gilded look. Then I adhered my painted panel onto the base and lastly adhered our Clear Rhinestones as embellishments.

I hope you all liked my card! Be sure to join us back here tomorrow (and everyday until January 26) to continue celebrating our Third Anniversary!

For my card today I used our new and beautiful Peony Bouquet set.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by white heat embossing the peony cluster in the corners of watercolor paper panel (Canson XL 140lb). I decided to do some loose watercoloring using Color Bursts with this project. I used Rouge, Lime Green and Jack O Lantern.

IMG_1772.jpg

Once I finished watercoloring, I let the panel dry before I added stitching to the edges of my A2 panel using our Double Stitched Rectangles Large dies. Next I heat embossed the sentiment from our Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0 (Updated Set) not vellum.  I made sure that the sentiment would be long enough to wrap around my watercolor panel. Additionally, I cut a slighter bigger strip of gray cardstock which I used to mount my vellum strip onto.

Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 6.58.22 AM

I adhered the ends of the vellum on top of the ends of the gray strip. Then I fold the two strips back and adhered the strips to the back of my watercolored panel. Lastly I embellished the card using Clear Rhinestones.
