Holiday Ornaments

Hi everyone! How’s it going? Vera here today. This past week been quite a whirlwind as this is the last week of Caring Hearts Card Drive (The Ton is one of the generous sponsor for the card drive). Let just say, every night after work, I sleep, eat, breath cards.

As of last night I have unpacked about 15,912 cards. Yep, my dining room been taken over by cards.

Anyway, since I am surrounded by Christmas cards, of course for today I also have to go with Christmas theme. Using the beautiful Holiday Ornaments set I made 2 cards that I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy making them.

IMG_0185
For this first card, I simply stamped the ornaments in various colors and then covered them with Sparkle Noir sparkle marker. Finished by stamped the sentiment & adding some sequins from Blue Ice Couture mix.

Next I went with watercolor.

IMG_0186
I just love this color combo! I first watercolor the card panel and then let it dry. Once it dry, I stamped and heat embossed the ornaments and hand drawn the lines with glitter pen. For the embellishment, just like t he first card, I used Blue Ice Couture mix.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. May your Friday be a fabulous one. Cheers….

autumn wishes windows

For my card today, I used our adorable Autumn Wishes set.

Don’t forget to subscribe to our Youtube Channel because I update it regularly with videos every week!

I started off creating a windows panel from cardstock using our Double Stitched Rectangle (large) and Square (small) dies. I traced the windows onto a separate card panel and blended some bright inks (Beach Blondie Dye, Bright Emerald Dye, Rose Quartz Dye) into the negative portions.

Next I stamped the smaller leaf clusters and birds using our Noir Dye Ink and colored them in using Tombow Dual Tip brush markers. Once everything was colored, I die cut the images using the coordinating dies.  Then I stamped the sentiment onto the windowed panel using our Noir Dye Ink.

Next, I used dimensional foam tape to pop up my windowed panel onto my blended panel. Then I adhered all the branches and sweet birds onto the windowed panel using additional foam tape. Lastly, I embellished my project using our Clear Rhinestones.

GIVEAWAY

We’re giving away one stamp of choice from our October Release to a commenter! To qualify, you must leave a comment on each blog on the hop. The comment period will close on Sunday, October 29 at 7pm EST. The winner will be announced on The Ton blog thereafter.

For my first card, I white heat embossed our new Thankful Chrysanthemum set. Then I added vibrant watercolors to color the image (Fuchsia, Lime Green and Gamboge Color Bursts). After I finished painting, I die cut my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle dies (small) set. Then I made my own glitter cardstock using our Red Glitter Adhesive paperRed Glitter Adhesive paper.  Next I mounted my painted panel onto my glitter base. Lastly, I added Clear Dew Drops to embellish my card. chrys red glitter 2

celebration rose daff

Photo taken against our White Marble Backdrop Board, 12×12 inch

For my next card, I used our Celebration Rose Cluster and Daffodil Greetings sets.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing our Celebration Rose Cluster in the corner of my A2 sized watercolor panel (Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper). Then I masked the rose cluster and partially heat embossed our Daffodil Greetings next to my rose cluster. This is a great way to stretch your floral cluster stamps – add additional florals to create a different/larger floral cluster!

After I heat embossed my customized cluster, I painted them with color bursts. Instead of blending out my first layer of color, I applied a very concentrated amount of paint and added shading to the petals using a second hue. For my roses, I used Alizarin Crimson and Merlot color bursts. For my daffodils, I used Gamboge and Tangerine. For my leaves, I used Lime Green and Terre Vert. For my background, I used Turquoise bursts. After I finished painting, I added stitching to the edges of the panel using our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (large) set. Next I popped up my white embossed sentiment banner and embellished my card with clear rhinestones.

rose close up color pencils

Photo taken against our White Marble Backdrop Board, 12×12 inch

For my last project, I merely stamped Rose Close Up and did some no line coloring.

To color, I started off with a first layer of a light copic marker. Then I added more color and depth using 4 color pencils (Faber Castell Polychromos). After I finished coloring this piece, I didn’t have the heart to cut it up to turn it into a finished card (it took me more than an hour to just color this piece). I will likely frame this later on.  However, I still wanted to showcase this piece for today.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 6.00.55 AM.png

I apologize for the lack of cards today! I am hoping that quality of my work compensates for the quantity (or lack thereof) for today.

Photo taken against our Natural Wood 12×12 inch Backdrop Board

For my first card, I was channeling my inner Kay Miller! With so many stamps to showcase, I had to draw inspiration from this amazing community. For this card, I stamped the cluster branches on a watercolor panel in our Noir Dye Ink (which can be used to watercolored over). Then I dropped in different shades of reds, oranges, yellows and browns onto my branches using the wet on wet watercolor technique. Once I was satisfied with the amount of color, I set the panel aside to dry. Then I splattered brown watercolor paint all over my panel.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in our Dark Roast Dye Ink and mounted the panel onto a side folding A2 base.

autumn wishes birds

Photo taken against our Smooth White Wood 12×12 inch Backdrop Board

For my next card, I created a scene using our new Autumn Wishes.  I started off by blending cards onto an white A2 cardstock panel using our Arctic Sky Dye Ink and a homemade cloud stencil. Since my ink was light, I stamped my branch clusters directly onto my clouds and colored the images in with a combination of yellow, orange and brown zig markers. After I stamped the sentiment, I stamped additional birds on a separate card panel, colored them in, cut them out and popped them up on my branches. Lastly, I adhered my colored panel onto a dusty blue side folding A2 base.

How adorable are these birds!!

My last Autumn Wishes card is more simple than my first two projects. I gold heat embossed my branch clusters onto the top and bottom edges of an A2 watercolor panel. Then I added watercolor paint and stamped the sentiment in our Dark Roast Dye Ink. Next I trimmed the left and right edges and mounted the panel onto an A2 side folding kraft card base.

For my first card, I started off by gold heat embossing the floral section of our Tulip Bouquet onto an A2 sized card panel. I partially heat embossed the bouquet to obtain a mirror image effect. Then I watercolored the florals using Color Bursts (Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red and Sap Green).

I adhered my watercolored panel onto a side folding A2 black card base and lastly embellished my card with some clear rhinestones.

For my next project, I rose gold heat embossed the tulip bouquet and then watercolored the image with color bursts (peony and sap green). Then I embossed the vase onto kraft cardstock and trimmed it near the base so that it would taper off to look like my bouquet was newly wrapped/packaged. I added some character to my “vase” by adding shading with zig markers. Next I added the bow and clear rhinestones to complete my card.

tulip bouquet 3

For my last bouquet card, I stamped  my tulips onto cardstock with our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored in the image using a combination of Copics, a red Copic Spica glitter pen and a micron black pigment ink pen.

For today, I have two cards and videos to share! Let’s start!

blue magnolias

Photo taken against our 12x12in White Marble Backdrop Board

For my first card, I used our new Magnolia Fields cling background stamp.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing the stamp onto an A2 sized watercolor panel.  Next, I painted each magnolia a soft cerulean blue using Ken Oliver Color Bursts to give my florals a nice base color. Then I added three layers of shading to the larger magnolia images using my zig markers (No 36 Light Blue, No 31 Cobalt Blue, No 32 Persian Blue).

blue magnolias 1blue magnolias 2blue magnolias 3

 

For the smaller florals, I only added the first layer of shading.

blue magnolias 4

Once my florals were complete, I watercolored the background/negative space with a deep Prussian Blue color burst. As I set the panel aside to dry, I created my banner sentiment using our Basic Banners and coordinating die. I only partially embossed the banner because I knew I would be cutting off the right half of it. I didn’t want to use the entire banner because I wanted to change up the way I used this set.

blue magnolias 5

Prior to popping up my banner onto my painted panel, I added stitching to the edges of my painted panel using the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) die set. Once the sentiment was popped up, I trimmed the excess which left me with a half banner with great interest. Then I added some shading with watercolor onto my banner to give it a bit of dimension. Lastly, I popped up my panel onto a side folding A2 card and then embellished it with 7mm and 5mm Clear Dew Drops.

nutcracker scene

For my next card, I created a festive scene using our Holiday Ballet set.

I started off by stamping my nutcracker and ballet figures on cardstock with our copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored everything in with copic markers. For my ballerinas, I added white gel pen stippling/dots to give their outfits a faux glitter finish. Then I cut my figures out with my electric cutting machine (although dies are available now, I did not have them at the time of making this card). I set my figures aside and proceeded to build my scene.

nutcracker scene 2

For my scene, I started off by stamping our Mountains on a horizontal A2 cardbase with our Pewter Collection Inks. Then I created a mask for my mountains and added shading (Miami Cool Dye Ink) behind them.  Next I stamped the second layer of our Mini Pine Tree multiple times across a separate piece of cardstock in our Everglade Moss Dye Ink.  Then I stamped the third layer of our Pine in our Hampton White Pigment Ink. I trimmed  my pine tree panel and fussy cut the top portion of my line of trees. Then I stamped the bottom portion of that panel with some more pigment ink so that I could heat emboss that area with white embossing powder for a snowy effect.

nutcracker scene 3

Once the heat embossing was finished, I stamped some trees from our Mountains set in our Noir Dye Ink behind my Pine Trees. Then I adhered my line of Pine Trees onto my mountain panel and then ran the entire panel through my big shot machine with the largest die in our double stitched rectangles to add stitching to the edges. Next I stamped the sentiment (Noir Dye Ink), snowflakes (Dusty Blues Collection) and tiny stars (Dusty Blues Collection) in the background. Once the scene was complete, I popped up my figures with dimensional foam tape.

Next is my Poinsettia Close Up card. I started off by rose gold heat embossing the large image on watercolor paper.

For my next card, I used the outline Holly Branch and stamped the top edge of my watercolor panel. Then I watercolored the leaves with two shades of color bursts (Sap Green and Prussian Blue). For my red berries, I used Alizarin Crimson. After I watercolored the branches, I added a light blue outline to the background behind the branches for interest. Next I took the small tree stamp from our Mountains set and repeatedly stamped my background using our Crystal Pewter ink. Then I added some watercolor to the base of my panel. Next I stamped my Pine Tree in our Soft Garden, Deep Emerald and Basil Mojito inks and cut them out. I popped up two over each other and then adhered my panel over a black cardbase.
