Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here again. But today I would like to share with you a holiday card in non-traditional Christmas colors.

I started by stamping beautiful poinsettias and winterberries from Loose Poinsettias stamp set onto a watercolor paper and colored them with Holbein watercolors. Then, I fussy cut them all.

Next, I splatted the card panel with left-over paint and stamped sentiment in Noir.

I adhered all images on the card panel and added a few sequins from Cotton Candy Puff Couture Mix to finish it up.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great Monday, friends!

At first, I stamped butterflies onto a white cardstock with Caribbean Turquoise, Peach Blossom and Ballet Slippers. The last layer of every butterfly was Rose Gold embossed. I fussy cut all images.

Next, I created a card panel by stamping foliage images onto a kraft panel and heat embossed them in white.

Coral, Gold and Navy

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with three Thanksgiving cards I made using stamp sets in Folk Art print style from our Fall 2019 Release : Autumn Sweater, Oak Leaf Print and Thanksgiving Block. For today’s cards I chose a color combination which includes traditional Fall colors like gold and brown along with Navy and coral. I was inspired by some Folk Art Print images I found in Pinterest.

The first card is showcasing Thanksgiving Block clear stamp set. The block image is 3.75″ x 5″ leaving a neat border on a A2 panel.

TT0918 1 1 WM

I stamped Thanksgiving Block on a white A2 sized cardstock. I stamped the upper and lower 1/3 in True Navy and the middle part in gold. It was already beautiful without any additional coloring but I decided to go with my colored pencils. I colored the flowers and leaves in coral, navy, light blue and brown and some leaves using a gold gel pen.

TT0918 1 CU WM

To add a bit of shine I covered the images with a clear glitter pen and added white Pico embellisher on the tiny berries. Lastly I mounted the panel on a navy cardbase and the card was finished!

TT0918 1 3 WM

The second card is showing the Oak Leaf Print stamp set.

TT0918 2 1 WM

I started off by stamping the big folk art oak leaf on a white cardstock in Aspen Cocoa, Found Topaz, Warm Hazelnut, Coralline Hybrid and Peach Blossom in an ombre fashion. I also heat embossed the bottom part in a metallic copper EP.

TT0918 2 CU1 WM

To create the cut out front panel I used the coordinating cutting file for Oak Leaf Print stamp set. I cut it from some white cardstock, ink blended the lower half in Peach Blossom and the upper half in Warm Hazelnut, and cut the panel to a A2 sized one using a Double Stitched Rectangle die.

TT0918 2 CU2 WM

I adhered the panel with the oak leaf on a white cardbase and foam mounted the front panel. The sentiments are from Oak Leaf Print and Thanksgiving Block set. I white heat embossed them on some navy cardstock, cut them in strips and added them to the card. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT0918 2 3 WM

The last card for today is featuring Autumn Sweater stamp set.

TT0918 3 1 WM

First I made the background panel. I pulled out an alcohol ink cardstock panel and colored it using Hazelnut, Mountain Rose, Butterscotch, Sunshine yellow alcohol inks and Gold Mixative. I used lots of rubbing alcohol to blend the colors smoothly.

TT0918 3 CU1 WM NEW

After the panel was completely dry, I white heat embossed the Autumn Sweater stamp on it. I brushed off the embossing powder from the white area of the panel before heat setting as I wanted to leave the area clean.

TT0918 3 CU2 WM NEW

To follow the color scheme I chose for today’s cards, I ink blended the branches I cut using a die from Petal Cut Peonies Standalone die set which is now retired. I used True Navy, Arctic Sky and some gold ink.

The sentiment is from Thankful Cornucopia set. I white heat embossed the banner and the sentiment on some navy cardstock and cut it using the coordinating die.

I adhered the background panel on a white cardbase, added a nest of golden thread and arranged the branches on it as shown in the picture. I then foam mounted the sentiment banner. I scattered some Medallion Gold sequins again to finish off the card.

TT0918 3 3 WM

How do you think about the untraditional color combination for Fall? I love the fresh impact that the added navy gives to the Fall colors.

Hope I could inspire you with my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a crafty day!

Hugs,

Autumn Transformation

Hello, crafty friends!! I have a card to share today using the Transformation stamp set!! This is such a beautiful image and so much fun to color!! Since we are going into fall, I thought I would color it as an Autumn Transformation!!

transformation1

I started by gold heat embossing the butterfly image from Transformation onto Bristol paper and watercolored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I die-cut the panel with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Sm) and a panel of blue cardstock with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectaangle Dies (Lg).

transformation2

I am totally into splatters lately, so I splattered on some blue and gold ink. The sentiment, also from the Transformation stamp set, was gold heat embossed onto the same blue cardstock, cut into a strip and popped up with foam adhesive. A mix of Medallion Gold Sequins and a couple of blue ones from the Milky Way Couture Mix completes the card!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful week!!

Hello, crafty friends!! I hope you had a great weekend!!

I have a card to share with you today using the Flawless stamp set!!

Flawless-Makeup-1

This stamp set contains several different makeup images and some fabulous sentiments!! I began by stamping all of the images from Flawless onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink. All of the images were colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut.

Flawless-Makeup-2

The greeting was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock panel, which was also splattered with diluted white gouache. I popped up all of the makeup images with foam tape, for added dimension. Clear Rhinestones were sprinkled all over the background and I called it done! (I actually adhere these upside down for more sparkle.)

Floral stamps from Fall 2019 Release

Hello crafty friends!  Hope your September is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I made using two beautiful floral stamp sets from our Fall Release: Sweet Bouquet and Dahlia Close Up 2. I used two different coloring mediums to make my cards: colored pencils and alcohol ink.

The first card is featuring the beautiful Sweet Bouquet .

TT 1 1-2 WM

I stamped the Sweet Bouquet image on a toned gray paper panel in a white pigment ink. I left the stamp in my MISTI to use it later after coloring. I colored the image using Prismacolor colored pencils. I prefer Prismacolor pencils to Polychromos, when I use colored paper. I used lots of white and bright colors to cover the gray paper.

TT 1 CU2-2 WMx

After the coloring was completed, I stamped the bouquet again in an embossing ink and heat embossed the outline image in white. I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a white cardbase.

The sentiment from the same stamp set was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and foam mounted onto the card. I finished off the card with a few clear Dew Drops.

TT 1 3-2 WM

For the second card for today I colored the gorgeous Dahlia Close Up 2 using alcohol inks.

TT 2 1-2 WM

To make this card I started off by stamping the image on an alcohol ink cardstock panel in a light ink. It helps me to choose the right color while I’m roughly adding alcohol inks to the panel. I dropped and blended Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Flamingo and Shell Pink where the large Dahlia flower is and added Slate to the area where the leaves are. I used rubbing alcohol to blend the inks.

TT 2 CU1-2 WM

After the panel was dry I silver heat embossed the image with the help of MISTI. I then started to add more colors onto the image. I used the same colors mentioned above and micro applicators to add darker shades on the petals and leaves.

TT 2 CU4-2 WM

After all the colors were dry I mounted the panel flat on a white cardbase. The sentiment was cut using Hugs word die from Glossy Fine Silver adhesive glitter paper and from some white cardstock. I stacked them together and adhered it on the card. The last finishing touch was some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

TT 2 4-2 WM

I was quite happy with the results 🙂 ! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

TaeEun
