Paris cafe scene

Hello everyone! It’s Anna here and I’m sharing a card with a Paris street cafe scene.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping images from City Girls: Cafe Date. I colored them with my Holbein watercolors and fussy cut them.

To create the background, I cut out the card panel using Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small) from a white cardstock and ink blended Peach Blossom, Hollywood Star and Plume Wine onto it. I stamped Scenes: Parisian Café on this panel with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white.

Next, I adhered all images on the card panel and foam mounted the card panel on a white card base. The sentiment was stamped in Caviar.

That’s all from me today!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend, friends!

Have A Fab Day!

Hello crafty friends!! I have a card to share with you today that features the Flower Cart stamp set…

Flower-cart-1

I started off by stamping the images from the Flower Cart stamp set onto Bristol paper with Noir Ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Markers and then fussy cut them out. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto the chalkboard sign. For the background, I stamped the Scenes: Parisian Café stamp onto white cardstock with Crystal Pewter Ink. All that was left was to adhere all of the fussy cut elements and trim off the excess where they hung over the edges.

Flower-cart-3

I love how the scene stamp creates just enough interest in the background, but the star of the show is definitely the flower cart!!

Thanks for joining me!! Have a great day!!

Coverplate SVG Cut Files II

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with three cards I made using The Ton’s digital cut files.

I’ve created three cards. Two of them are a set made using Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut file and the third card was made using Diamond Layering Coverplate SVG cut files and Flower Cart set from our May 2019 Release.

Let’s take a look at the couple of cards for each of which I used positive and negative cuts of the coverplate cut from Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut files.  Using  Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut files you can create a beautifully shaded dahlia as it has three layers. But I used only the coverplate cut file and added it on a watercolored base.

Tt0717 2 1 WM

To start off I cut the coverplate with the dahlia from Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut files from a silver cardstock. I also cut it from some white cardstock two more times.

I watercolored a Mixed Media paper panel using Color Burst. I used the coverplate cut as my guide so that I can color the dahlia in pink and the leaves and the background in green.

I stacked the coverplate cuts together and adhered it on the watercolored base layer. The hello sentiment was cut using hello word die from silver and black cardstock. I adhered the silver hello on the black one slightly offset and added it onto the card.

I finished off the card with some black, silver and clear sequins from Glossy Black sequins, New Year and Spotlight Couture Mix.

TT0717 2 3 WM

For the second card I used the silver pieces which were left from the cut I did for the first card.

TT0717 1 1 WM

I adhered the negative pieces on a black panel. I did it before I assembled the first card to use the coverplate cut as my guide. I mounted this black panel on a light gray cardbase.

TT0717 1 CU WM

I also cut a coverplate using Garden Foliage coverplate SVG cut file from some white cardstock and foam mounted it onto the card. The sentiment from Penned Sentiments set was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and added to the card. To embellish the card I added some clear Dew Drops.

Tt0717 1 3 WM

To create the last card I used Diamond Layering Coverplate as background for the Flower Cart.

TT0717 3 1 WM

I started off by stamping the flower cart, buckets of flowers, balloons and the sandwich board for the sentiment from Flower Cart set in Caviar hybrid ink on a white cardstock.

TT0717 3 CU1 WMx

I colored all the images with Copic markers and fussy cut. I then started making the background. I cut the four layers of Diamond Layering Coverplate cut files from white cardstock. I stamped Scenes Parisian Cafe stamp on my light gray cardbase and Diamond layering coverplates except for the uppermost layer in Crystal Pewter and assembled them together.

I then arranged the images from Flower Cart onto the background as shown in the picture. I finished off the card by adding three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

That’s it from me today! Hope I was able to give you some inspiration with my cards!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a crafty day!

Beauty can be found in all of life’s moments

Hello everyone!  It’s Mayline here today with a floral card I made using Butterfly Wings – Swallowtail stamp set, and Today’s Cosmos stamp set which is one of my favourite stamp set.

The Ton_Butterfly Wings_01

Instructions:

  • Create a panel from 300g watercolour paper.
  • Stamp a butterfly wing from Butterfly Wings – Swallowtail stamp set using Noir Dye Ink on the panel.
  • Stamp cosmos and leaves images from Today’s Cosmos stamp set around the butterfly image.
  • Stamp sentiment from Today’s Cosmos stamp set with Noir Dye Ink.
  • Colour all images using Color Burst. 
  • To give a bit dimension, use a coordinate die to cut some cardstock and adhere it to the wing. (This die is cutting along the wing’s outline but it is no longer on sale. If you have a cutting machine, use a machine instead of the die. If you don’t have the cutting machine, stamp the butterfly image from Butterfly Wings – Swallowtail stamp set on some white/black cardstock and cut the exact wing shape using scissors and precision knife.

Peony Dreams Birthday Card

Hello & happy Friday!! I have a card to share today that showcases the stunning Peony Dreams Cluster stamp. I love the size of this clear stamp!! I did heat emboss and watercolor it once before, but I really wanted to do some no-line coloring and I am super happy with how it turned out!

Peony-Dreams-lg1

I began by stamping the Peony Dreams Cluster stamp onto white cardstock with Frosted Vanilla Cupcake Ink. I colored the image with Copics and added some details with colored pencils and a yellow gel pen. I trimmed the panel slightly and matted it with a panel of light gray cardstock. The finished card is 5.5 inches square. For the greeting, I die-cut “sending” from silver glitter paper and black cardstock using the Love and Hugs Word Plate Dies and adhered them slightly offset. The rest of the sentiment is from the Dearest Peony stamp set. It was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip. A sprinkling of sequins from the Glass Slippers Sequin Mix adds some sparkle and shine!!

Hummingbird Love

Hi peeps! How’s your July going so far? On my neck of the wood we’re facing the hot & humid summer day.

Now, I don’t mind the hot weather, but I can’t help wishing that I am at least in a tropical surrounding. LOL, I think good views always help making the hot weather more bearable. Hah…

Speaking about tropical, I have to say that anything with tropical leaves tend to catch my eyes. Just like this Monstera Layering Coverplate Bundle. I saw it & I was like, ooohhh, this would be fun to play with.

IMG2903.2

To start, I cut out the leaves from the set using my Brother Scan ‘N Cut. I love this machine & sure been showing it lots of love lately. Then, I inked up the leaves. I decided to go with this cool color combo. Who says leaves have to be green, right?

Once I am happy with the color, I adhere the leaves to the card panel. Trim all the parts that hang over the edge and then I went ahead and glue the panel to the card base.

Next, I played with one of my favorite digital cut file, the Hummingbird and use various color glitter papers. Swoon, I love the way the bird come out.

IMG2903.1

Next, I adhere the bird to the card base with foam adhesive and added the sentiment from Country Rose Clutter set. Finished by adding some Nuvo enamel drop.

IMG2903.3
Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s post. I know I’ve been playing with lots of digital cut files lately, but I sure do still playing with lots of stamps as well. The way I look at it, variation is always a good thing in keeping the creative mojo going. 😉

May your day be a beautiful one. Cheers.
