Congrats to you

Hello, everyone! Today Anna here with watercolored floral card.

I started by stamping beautiful flowers from Delightful Wildflowers and heat embossed them in Rose Gold. I colored all images with Holbein watercolors and cut out them using matching dies. For the background, I cut out plaid pattern panel from light blue cardstock using Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies.

To make the sentiment, I white heat embossed “Congrats” from Easy Expressions Cheers on a kraft cardstock, stamped “to you” in Noir and cut out it with Easy Expressions Cheers Coordinating Die. I embellished my card with a few sequins from Pink Neptune Couture Mix.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great start of the week.


Planters Cards

Hi all. Happy Friyay! Vera here bringing you some crafting inspiration as you head toward the weekend. Work been quite stressful for me lately, so, at home to calm my mind, am making the time to do some crafting. This is my way of keeping my sanity. Hah!

I actually made a couple cards today. For the first card, I made this fun card in cool tone using Petite Tones set.

To start, I created the background using alcohol ink on yupo paper. I just love this color combination.

Then, I used the Convention Coverplate dies to die cut the background to layer on top of the alcohol ink background. Next, stamped, colored and die cut the plants and pots from Petite Tones set. Arrange them on the card and adhere with foam adhesive. Finished by adding the label sentiment from Regal Rose set.

Now, for my second card, I went with muted tone. Quite the opposite of the first card. Here, I used the Fig Leaves Cling Background. This time, I used gel press technique to create the background.

First, I swipe Hot Tourmaline, Bright Fern and Soft Garden on the gel plate. Then, blend them with a roller and once I feel like I blend them enough, I laid the Fig Leaves stamp on top of the plate and lift the stamp up. The stamp picked up the ink from the gel plate. Laid the panel on top of the plate and as you can see the part where the stamp lift up the ink show up white on the panel. I love doing this technique. Trim the panel at an angle and adhere to card base.

Stamped the planters from Plentiful Planters set and the flowers from Lush Plants set. Colored and die cut using the coordinating Plentiful Planters dies and Lush Plants dies. Adhere the planters directly on the card and adhere the plants with foam adhesive. Stamped the sentiment from Cascade Bits and finished by adding some Pastel Mint sequins and a strip of glitter paper.

I hope you enjoy today’s cards and may you find some times to craft this weekend as well. Have a great Friday, peeps!

Courtyard Stairs & Refreshing Evergreen Background Cards

Hello, crafty friends!! I hope you are having a great day!!

I have two cards to share with you today! Both of them use new cling background stamps from the Summer 2021 Release!!

The first one features the Courtyard Stairs Cling Background Stamp

I began by stamping the Courtyard Stairs Cling Background Stamp onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink. I colored the background with shades of gray Copics and trimmed the panel slightly smaller than A2. That panel was adhered to a black panel of cardstock that was die-cut with the largest die in the Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Nested Dies.

Next, I stamped some of the images from Petite Planters and Lush Plants onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink. I also colored those with Copics, then cut them out with the Petite Planters and Lush Plants Coordinating Dies. The sentiment, from Many Banners, was stamped onto white cardstock with Caviar and Meadow Ink, then cut out with the Coordinating Dies. All of the die-cuts were adhered to the background panel and this one was done!!

My next card featured the Refreshing Evergreen Cling Background Stamp

I knew as soon as I saw this stamp that I wanted to color it with Copics, so began this one by stamping the Refreshing Evergreen Background Cling Stamp onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink, then colored it with Copic markers. After spending so much time coloring it, I didn’t want to trim any of it away, so I die-cut it with the two largest dies in the Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Dies. I popped the outside frame up with foam adhesive onto an A2 size card base and adhered the inner panel flat to the card base.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Ribbons General Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Cali Blue and Parisian Blue Ink, then used the Coordinating Die to cut them out. “Birthday”, also from Ribbons General, was stamped onto a white cardstock strip with Parisian Blue Ink. The die-cut sentiment and strip were both popped up with foam adhesive. I decided against adding any bling, then this could be suitable for a male or female’s birthday!

Well, that’s it for me today!! I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these two cards created with the new cling background stamps!!

Have a great Wednesday!!


Lush Plants and Petite Planters

Hi everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a set of cards I made using the Lush Plants and Petite Planters stamp sets from the Summer 2021 Release! To create the background I used Courtyard Stairs cling stamp and the Convention coverplate die

I started by stamping the plants and planters from the Lush Plants and Petite Planters stamp sets in Caviar hybrid ink on Bristol smooth paper panel. I colored them using Copic markers or Karin brush markers. So some of them are watercolored. 
I cut all the images using the coordinating dies and set them aside.

The first card is featuring Courtyard Stairs cling stamp along with the plants.

I stamped the Courtyard Stairs in Stormy Sea on a watercolor paper panel. I stamped it again in an embossing ink and clear heat embossed the image. I then watercolored the background lightly and let the panel dry. 

The background panel was mounted flat on a white cardbase and I arranged the plants on it as shown in the picture using foam tape.

The sentiment from Baroque Frame Oval stamp set was heat embossed in silver on some velum. I cut it with a circle die from the Double Pierced Circle die set. I also cut a white circle in a smaller size and adhered it on the back of the vellum. The sentiment was added to the card using foam tape. Some Glass Slippers sequins were the finishing touch for this card.

For the second card I die cut four Convention coverplates, stacked them all and adhered it on a white cardbase. I then added the plants on it as shown in the picture. 

The sentiment from Easy Expressions Cheers set was stamped in Grape Crush and Noir and cut with the coordinating die. I finished off the card with some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

I love the cute plants especially because you can mix and match them as you want! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope my cards have inspired you today!

Wishing you all a wonderful week !

Grouped Fresh Daisies – Thank You Card

Hello, fellow card makers and crafters and happy Wednesday!!

I have a card to share today that is all layered stamps and die-cuts!! No coloring at all, which is pretty unusual for me!!

I began by stamping the daisies and leaves in the Grouped Fresh Daisies Stamp Set. For the blooms, I skipped the base layer and layered Moonlight and Crystal Pewter Inks with the second and third layer of the daisies. The leaves were stamped with Meadow and Spring Salad and the centers of the flowers with Beach Blondie and Found Topaz Inks. Next, I die-cut the images with the Grouped Fresh Daisies Coordinating Dies.

For the background, I die-cut the Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies from yellow and two colors of blue cardstock. The yellow and lighter blue cardstock weren’t quite bright enough, so I inked on some Beach Blondie and Cali Blue Inks with blending brushes to brighten them up a bit. The die-cuts were layered and adhered over a white card base.

The daisies and leaves were popped up with foam adhesive, then I added some dots to the centers of the daisies with a yellow gel pen. For the sentiment, I stamped the Ribbons General Stamp Set with Cali Blue and Cobalt Breeze Inks, then cut the sentiments out with the Coordinating Die. “Thanks” was adhered with a combination of liquid and foam adhesive. A sprinkling of Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots around the sentiment finishes off the card!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Enjoy the rest of your week!!


Thinking of you

Hello and happy Monday, everyone! Anna here today with a thinking of you card.

I started by heat embossing images from Dove Friends and Mum Close Up Cling Background stamps in Rose Gold and colored them with Holbein watercolors. Dove image was cut out with Dove Friends Coordinating Dies.

To make the card panel, I cut out Mum Close Up image with Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Dies. For the sentiment, I stamped “Thinking of you…” from Easy Expressions Sympathy on a stripe of vellum and heat embossed it in black (I used black embossing powder). Lastly, I embellished the card with Dew Drops.

Thank you so much for stopping by!


Vivid Peonies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re all doing well! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral Thank You card featuring one of our new Grouped Layering stamp sets, Vivid Peonies. I added a few small flowers from Blossom Branches set and leaves from Bountiful Leaves set to my bouquet! 

The colors I used for the flowers and leaves are listed below. I used mostly our new colors! 

Vivid Peonies

Blossom Branches

Bountiful Leaves: Light Oat, Matcha, and Spring Salad

I cut all the flowers and leaves using the coordinating dies and set them aside. 

To create the background I first cut the oval frames from a heavyweight white cardstock using the Double Pierced Oval Coverplate die. I ink blended each oval frame in yellow (Lemon Drop and Amber Citrine), pink (Bubblegum) or green (Matcha) and placed them on a white cardbase adhering them alternately flat and with foam tape to add some interest. 

Next I arranged the flowers and leaves as shown in the picture. I also cut some branches from white cardstock using Leafy Bits coverplate die and added some of them to my floral cluster. 

The sentiment is from Vivid Peonies set. I finished off the card by scattering a few Glass Slippers sequins. 

Thank you so much for looking!  Hope I was able to inspire you with my card today!

Have a beautiful and crafty day!

Card with Roses

Hello everyone! Olga with you today. I made card using Rose Patch and Grouped Fresh Garden Roses.

I stamped Rose Patch with Bubblegum , Cherry and Lipstick Red Dye and applied coordinating die.

I toned the background using Honey dew and applied Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Nested Dies. I stamped the title from Easy Expressions Sympathy with Noir and applied Double Stitched Square Nested Dies.

I put all details together and decorated my card with watercolor splashes and sequins.

Have a nice day!
