Morning Glory Greetings, 3×4 Photopolymer Stamp Set; SVG Cut File

Created by Vera using our Morning Glory Greetings and Coming Up Morning Glories (embossed background image – scroll down for more details on this stamp).

I created a new card for today using our GWP Morning Glory Greetings stamp. I heat embossed the cluster three times along the bottom half of a 4.5in x 6in watercolor panel. Once I watercolored the images, I created the sentiment elements using our Love and Hugs Word Plate dies. Lastly, I embellished the card with butterflies from our Beautiful Butterflies 1 and Gold Medallion sequins.

Chickadee Greetings, 3×4 Photopolymer Stamp Set; SVG Cut File

Here’s a roundup of cards from yesterday featuring our smaller sized GWP Chickadee Greetings stamp. Our Chickadee Greetings is only available as a GWP and is not available for separate purchase.

Let’s proceed with our new designs!

Layered Floral Alphas, Two 9×12 Photopolymer Stamp Bundle

I am so excited to introduce this stamp bundle! This is a bundle of TWO 9×12 inch photopolymer stamps. Each layer that is boxed in red is one stamp. You can customize your projects and then use one of many sentiments included in the bundle. Once you stamp all the layers, the results are amazing!

We have a coordinating coverplate die that will cut all the letters out in one shot. You can find it here. This die DOES NOT coordinate with the 6×8 Floral Alpha stamps.

I started off by stamping our new Mini Dots background stamp onto white cardstock. Next, I added stitching to my polka dot panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Small die collection. Next I adhered it onto a cardbase. Then I gold heat embossed and watercolored two pieces of our Morning Glory Greetings clusters. Additionally, I stamped and die cut our Layered Floral Alphas (Inks: Red Sangria, Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms, Soft Garden, Bright Fern).

For now, I just used the L, I and Z since this will be a card for my sister. I’ll save the unused letters for a future project. Next, I stamped the additional sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink onto a white sentiment strip. Then I cut fish tail banners on each end. Lastly, I popped up everyone over my polka dot panel and added Gold Medallion Sequins to complete my card.

Floral Alphas, 6×8 Photopolymer Stamp Set

Next up is our Floral Alphas! This is a smaller set than the previous stamp set and there is no layering element. For this set, we have some beautifully detailed outline florals embedded into this bold font.

For this card, I stamped our Floral Alphas to spell out the word Happy in our Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored in the little florals and leaves with copics. I also stamped our new Noted Peonies florals and (previously released) Fresh Cut Roses in our Peony and Ruby Collection Inks. The leaves were stamped in our Garden Collection inks. Next I created the die cut background using our Geometric Circles Coverplate die. The birthday sentiment was partially stamped and is from our Layered Floral Alpha Stamp Bundle bundle. Lastly, I assembled all the elements onto an A2 cardbase using foam tape.

I started off by stamping our new Basic Stripes onto white cardstock. Then I took each letter for the word THANK and lined them up in my Misti and then stamped and embossed a few strips for three cards. Next, I stamped and embossed our Morning Glory Greetings cluster and cut the clusters in half. Then I started assembling my cards by popping up the large Thank strip onto the striped background with foam tape. Then I tucked the floral cluster halves behind the Thank strip. Lastly, I stamped the “YOU SO VERY MUCH” from our Layered Floral Alphas and popped that up onto my cards. The three cards came together quickly and now I have some simple and modern Thank You cards for my stash.

Transformation Hummingbird, 6×6 Photopolymer Stamp Set

This is the latest addition to our Transformation line! Vera gave me the idea to create a whole line of this concept and I’m so excited about this hummingbird. I love morning glories because they’re truly wonderful to color. I thought it would be great to use this floral for our hummingbird design. I wanted to make the set more versatile so I included some loose morning glory florals for customized clusters. I hope you love this set as much as I do. The coordinating SVG cut file is available here.

Created by Tae Eun using our Transformation Hummingbird, Morning Glory Greetings, Coming Up Morning Glories and Medallion Gold sequins.

Coming Up Morning Glories, 6×6 Photopolymer Stamp Set

The newest addition to our coming up series is our Coming Up Morning Glories! This cluster is slightly larger than the previous Coming Up florals which makes it even better to color. There are several bold and scripty sentiments included in the set. Coordinating SVG cut file available here.

Created by Tae Eun using our Coming Up Morning Glories, Basic Stripes and Medallion Gold sequins.

For this hop, I created a Christmas coffee card.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping images from Hug in a Mug, Holly Branch and Holiday Trio (poinsettia cluster) onto a piece of watercolor paper and heat embossed them in Rose Gold. Then, I watercolored them all and cut them out. I splatted the card panel with left-over paint (brown).

Next, I ink blended Hollywood Star on a stripe of white cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment from Cozy Poinsettias onto it in white.

SONY DSC

I adhered all images on the card panel and foam mounted the card panel on a kraft card base. Lastly, I added a few sequins from Amethyst Quartz Couture Mix to finish it up.

Merry Christmas – Holiday Trio

Good morning & Happy Halloween!! I know today is Halloween, but I am in full-blown Christmas card mode over here, so I have a holiday card to share with you today!!

gift-trio-1

I LOVE pairing blue and red together for Christmas!! Actually, blue is like a neutral for me…it goes with everything!!

I stamped both images in the Holiday Trio stamp set with Caviar Ink, colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I love that the poinsettia cluster is separate from the gift trio…the gifts can be used year-round for any occasion!!

gift-trio-2

For the background, I die-cut the Geometric Circles Coverplate from white cardstock and adhered it to a panel of silver glitter paper. The gifts and poinsettia cluster were popped up onto the background with foam tape. The greeting, also from Holiday Trio, was white heat embossed onto a strip of black cardstock and also adhered with dimensional adhesive. A bit of Silver Stickles adds some sparkle to the center of the poinsettias.

gift-trio-3

Thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me!!

Have a great Halloween and I’ll see you soon!!!

A Merry little Christmas

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with a holiday card I made using a Wonderland Print Stamps (Two 6×8 sets).

SONY DSC

I began by stamping a beautiful Christmas frame in Valentine Red, Everglade Moss and Deep Emerald. I stamped big poinsettia and holy branches with the same inks. Then, I cut out all images with matching dies.

To make the background, I ink blended Valentine Red on a piece of white cardstock, stamped stripes using Diagonal Stripes Cling Background and heat embossed them in white. I cut out the card panel with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small).

SONY DSC

Next, I stamped the sentiment on a stripe of vellum and heat embossed it in Glitter Gold.

I adhered all images on the card panel and added a few drops of Glossy Accents to berries.

That’s all from me today! Have a great day, friends!

Pink Butterflies

Hello everyone! Hope the week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring some of our butterfly stamps.

Did you know that there is no real pink butterflies in the nature? I realized it recently as I decided to make the butterflies for my cards pink. I was curious and googled. hmmm.. but why not? Nothing is impossible in cardmaking 🙂 !

For my first card I used Sunny Folk Garden stamp set which includes some whimsical butterflies and layering florals. I added also a frame made using the Garden Foliage Coverplate SVG cut file.

TT1028 1 1 WM

I cut the Garden Foliage Coverplate three times from heavy weight white cardstock and glued them together to add dimension. I set it aside and started to make the main panel. I stamped the layered flowers from Sunny Folk Garden stamp set in Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink and the leaves in Caribbean Turquoise. I stamped the floral cluster on the bottom and left border of the panel. I then ink blended Caribbean Turquoise on the bottom of the panel and Lemon Drop on the top of the panel.

TT1028 1 CU2 WM

I stamped one butterfly in Lemon Drop and filled it with the patterns in Arctic Sky and Caribbean Turquoise. I fussy cut the butterfly and glued it on the main panel as shown in the picture. I also stamped another butterfly in Hollywood Star and heat embossed the inner pattern in Rose Gold. I cut the butterfly and set it aside.

TT1028 1 CU1 WM

I adhered the main panel on a white cardbase and added the Garden Foliage Coverplate to it. The sentiment is from Transformation set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of white cardstock , ink blended it in Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink and cut it in a banner.

I adhered the pink butterfly next to the sentiment and finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers sequins.

TT1028 1 3 WM

The second card is featuring our washi tapes and butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set.

TT1028 2 1 wM

I started off by making the background panel using Pink Peonies washi tape. I adhered it on a white cardstock panel and added white gesso on the center of it. I then stamped the “hugs” in Hollywood Star using Brushed Hugs stamp set. I heat embossed the upper half of the letters in Rose Gold. I cut it using the coordinating die and set it aside.

TT1028 2 CU1 WM

I cut the small floral elements from the Pink Peonies washi tape and wildflowers washi tape which I adhered on some white cardstock. The little butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set were heat embossed in Rose Gold and then ink blended in Soft Garnet.  I cut them using the coordinating dies (now we have the coordinating cut files in the shop!).

TT1028 2 CU2 WM

I cut the panel with the Pink Peonies washi tape using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on a pink cardbase. I foam mounted the words and arranged the flowers and butterflies as shown in the picture. I finished off the card with a few clear dew drops.

TT1028 2 3 WM

I like the texture which the white gesso adds to the background. It also toned down the pattern in the background!

That’s it from my side today! I hope you enjoyed a little break from making holiday cards  🙂 !

Wishing you all a happy and crafty week!

Sending Tropical Hugs

Hi peeps. How’ it going? Vera here and today I am bringing a tropical inspiration.

I know, it’s fall season, but I can’t help thinking tropical as I’ve  been feeling homesick lately. I came from a tropical country and I grew up with coconut trees lining up our front yard. So, when I saw this Palm Close Up set, I know I have to have it.

IMG2957.2
I started by inking up the card panel with various ink color. Once that done, I stamped and heat embossed the palm leaves. I just love the way the leaves look. It feels calming to me personally.

IMG2957.1
Next, I adhere the adhesive glitter gold paper to a piece of cardstock and run it through the die cut machine with the word hugs from Love & Hugs Word Plate Dies set. I die cut 3 more set from a plain cardstock  to layer it up to make it stand out more.

Finish the card by die cutting the word sending and adhere it to the card. By using the gold embossing powder it takes what would be a very simple card to a next level where it also looks elegant. Just because something is simple doesn’t mean it has to be boring, right?

I hope you enjoy today’s card and maybe in a small way it also makes you feel relax and dream of the tropical soft breeze.

Oh yes, don’t forget that Caring Hearts Card Drive is in full swing right now. If you’d like to bring joy to others and brighten the elderly Christmas season please consider mailing in some handmade holiday cards to the card drive. The Ton is one of the generous sponsor. Here’s the link for the card drive details: http://lingshappyplace.blogspot.com/2019/10/2019-caring-hearts-card-drive.html

Have a blessed day!

Vera

Christmas friends

Hello everyone! Olga with you today! I want to share one card with Cardinal Friends. I associate this bird with Christmas. And it’s so easy to colorize. Red, what else?

IMG_6473

I stamped all details of my card using Caviar Hybrid and colored it with alcoholic markers.Then I applied the Coordinating Dies.

IMG_6475

I made the background using Christmas Sweater and hot embossing with white powder. Then I applied Double Stitched Circle Dies. I toned it with Cali Blue, Spiced Chai, Dark Roast and Light Onyx Dyes.

IMG_6479

I made the title and put all elements together. I decorated my card with Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

That`s all. Have a nice day, friends!

 

 

Red or Blue ?

Hello and happy Monday, everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start!  It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of holiday cards made using Loose Poinsettias stamp set.  I’ve made one in red and the other one in blue-purple!

Here is my first card which is the red version.

TT1021 1 1 WM

I started off by gold heat embossing five poinsettias in two sizes from Loose Poinsettias stamp set on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I also gold heat embossed the leaf images several times. I colored the poinsettias and leaves using Color Burst powders. I used Alizarin Crimson, Merlot and Orange for the flowers. The leaves were colored in yellow brown using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors.

I fussy cut all the images and set them aside. You can use also the coordinating cut files.

TT1021 1 3 WMx

To create the background I first gold heat embossed the sentiment from Poinsettia Wreath set on the center of a white cardbase. I then ink blended Lipstick Red on the cardbase leaving the center of it white. I splattered white opaque ink on it and let it dry.

Tt1021 1 CU2 WMx

I placed the red poinsettias and leaves on the cardbase making a floral frame as shown in the picture. The brown leaves were glued flat and the red poinsettias were mounted using some foam adhesives for some dimension. I then splattered opaque white ink on the poinsettias.  I know the red colored poinsettias are actually leaves but I think we may call them flowers 🙂 . I finished off the card by adding three clear dew drops.

TT1021 1 4 WM

And this is the blue holiday card I want to share with you.

TT1021 2 1 WM

Like the first card I started here also by heat embossing the poinsettias, but this time in silver. I colored the poinsettias in Cerulean Blue and Orchid Color Burst and the leaves and berries in silver. I fussy cut them all.

Tt1021 2 CU1 WM new

To create the background I used Blizzard Hugs stamp set. I heat embossed three snowflake images on a watercolor paper panel in white pearl. I ink blended the panel in Cali Blue and Cobalt Breeze starting from the two diagonal corners towards the center.

Tt1021 2 2 WM

I arranged the poinsettias and the berries as shown in the picture. The large poinsettia was foam mounted and the other images were adhered flat on the front panel. The sentiment from Poinsettia Wreath set was stamped in Grape Crush.  I added a few Light Blue Topaz sparkling clear sequins to the card and the card was finished!

TT1021 2 4-3

 

That was my two cards! Which one do you like more, red or blue 🙂 ? To me the red one is more attractive ❤ . But it could be the layout not the color which I like more 😉 .

Hope you enjoyed looking my cards! Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hugs,

TaeEun

 

Purple Poinsettias

Good morning!! I LOVE creating holiday cards with non-traditional colors!! Especially with a touch (or a lot) of black for a little drama!! I decided on purple for today’s card and I love how it turned out…

Purple-Poinsettias-1.jpg

I started by stamping the Poinsettia Arrangement onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink and coloring the image with Copics. I did add some additional details with colored pencils. I fussy cut the image and set it aside to work on my background.

Purple-Poinsettias-2

I stamped and heat embossed the Holiday Border Cling Background stamp onto purple cardstock with WOW! White Twinkle embossing powder. I wish you could see the sparkle from this embossing powder…it is white with silver glitter mixed in!! I trimmed the panel slightly and adhered it to a white A2 cardbase. The greeting, also from Poinsettia Arrangement, was white heat embossed onto black cardstock and cut out. I popped the poinsettia image and the greeting up with foam adhesive. Lastly, some Silver Stickles add some bling to the center of the poinsettias.

Purple-Poinsettias-3

That’s it for me today!! How about you? Do you prefer traditional or non-traditional colors in your holiday cards?

Have a wonderful weekend!!
