Hugs For You

Hi peeps! Happy Monday! Can you believe it that we’re already in the last week of March? Time sure flies isn’t it?

Well, before we fly through this week, I am here today to bring you a creative inspiration from The Ton.

My crafty friends and I try to get together once a month and this past weekend was our monthly meeting. It was fun as everyone were so buzzing with creativity. It never fails to get my creativity going on full blast.

One of the card I worked on was this card.

Seriously, this Peony Laurel set is one of my favorite. I stamped, colored & die cut the flower. On this card, I really didn’t have any plan on what I am going to do. I often just started with a favorite set & go from there.

Once I finished the flower, I was debating on what next & remember I have this Holiday Chic Tag dies that hasn’t got that much love. So, I decided to use it to ground my sentiment. Die cut the tag & colored it with various ink then die cut the word Hugs using one of the word dies from Peony Laurel coordinating dies set.

Adhere the flower & the tag to the panel & adhere them to the card base. Then, stamped the other sentiments.

I can’t help but have to use the birdies from Nesting Peonies set. Did I ever tell you how much I love birdies? I love them! 🙂 Oh yes, I also added a little strip of stripes on the bottom. I think it add the perfect finishing touch to this card, so it’s not too plain.

Well peeps, that’ all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card & may your week tarts off wonderfully. Cheers….

Daffodil Greeting

Hello, everyone! Anna here and today I would like to share with you a card I made using Daffodil Greetings stamp set.

To start, I stamped beautiful daffodils onto a white cardstock with Caviar ink. I colored all images using Copic markers and fussy cut them all.

To create the background, I took A2 sized white cardstock and ink blended Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and Lofty Mint onto it. I cut out kraft panel with Geometric Circles Coverplate Die.

Next, I arranged my daffodil bouquet on my card.

To make a sentiment I cut out “Sending” from gold glitter cardstock with Love and Hugs Word Plate Dies and stamped “best wishes on …” from Dearest Peony onto a stripe of black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white.

I added a few Dew Drops to embellish my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Dry Embossing using Dies – featuring Washi Tapes

Hello and welcome to The Season! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards I made using our new floral washi tapes. I love love love the floral washi tapes!!! They are beautiful and you have endless possibilities to use them to embellish your projects! I cut out the floral images of the washi tapes and used them like die cut floral elements for both of my cards today. I created the background for the beautiful floral elements by dry embossing the panel using dies.

The first card is featuring Pink Peonies washi tape.

TT0318 2 1 WM new

I adhered the Pink Peonies washi tape on a white cardstock and fussy cut the floral clusters from it. I set them aside and started making the background panel.

Tt0318 2 CU2 WMx

To create the background I dry embossed a white A2 sized panel using Geo Mountain Coverplate die B. I then applied an embossing ink on the half of the panel and sprinkled Rose Gold embossing powder on the panel and heat set it.

Tt0318 2 CU4 WMx

I die cut the sentiment using Bold Amazing Greeting Word plate die and Sweetheart Word plate die from white cardstock. I heat embossed the upper part of “fabulous” in Rose Gold and foam mounted the letters on the background panel. I then arranged the small flowers and leaves from Pink Peonies washi tape around the letters and added “you’re” die cut, stacked three times, on the “fabulous”. I went over the “you’re” die cut with a clear glitter pen to add more shine.

The second card is showcasing Wildflowers washi tape.

TT0318 1 1 WMx

Here again I adhered the Wildflowers washi tape on a white cardstock and fussy cut the floral images. The background panel is a shimmer cardstock. I dry embossed it using Double Stitched Circle dies. I also cut a circle frame using two of the Double Stitched Circle dies from a dark gray cardstock as a base of my wreath.

Tt0318 1 CU2 WMx

I adhered the dry embossed background panel on a gray cardbase and foam mounted the dark gray frame on it. I then arranged the floral elements I cut from the Wildflowers washi tape in a wreath on the circle frame.

TT0318 1 CU5 WMx

The sentiment is from Painted Peonies set. I white heat embossed it on a circle vellum piece. I adhered the vellum on a gray circle and foam mounted it on the center of the card. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

Dry embossing with dies adds interesting texture on your background!

That’s it from my side today! Hope I was able to inspire you with my cards :)!

Birthday Peonies

Good morning everyone!! Spring is in the air today with this bright, floral birthday card!!

Birthday-Peony1

I started by stamping the Coming Up Peonies onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink and colored them with Copic markers. I added some additional shading and details with colored pencils and a white gel pen, then fussy cut the image. For the background, I stamped the Modern Plaid Cling Background Stamp onto light blue cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The frame was cut from white cardstock using the two largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lg). The sentiment, from Gifted, was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip. The frame, peonies and sentiment strip were all popped up with foam adhesive. Lastly, a few sequins from the Belle’s Dress Couture Mix add a little sparkle.

Hello crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It’s TaeEun here today with a fiery floral card featuring Coming Up Peonies. I colored this beautiful peony cluster from Coming Up Peonies set using Copic markers. I tried a new color combination.

TT0311 3 WMx

I started off by stamping the image in Copic friendly Caviar hybrid ink. The peonies were colored in R30, R32, R37 and R89 which create beautiful coral shade. The leaves and stems were colored using V91, V93, V95 and V99. These V colors are very similar to warm gray colors with a touch of violet.

After coloring was done I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.

TT0311 CU3 WMx

I wanted a dark background. At first I tried a black panel but changed my mind and blended a coral to black ombre on a white panel. I used Coral Cavern, Peach Blossom, Grape Crush , Smoky Quartz, Light Onyx and Noir. I let the panel completely dry and stamped the Modern Plaid background stamp in an embossing ink on it. I then applied Mandarin Perfect Pearls powder on it using a dry paint brush. The powder sticks on the embossing ink and creates a subtle shiny pattern. I added water to the same powder and splattered it onto the panel. I also splattered white opaque ink.

TT0311 1 WM

After the panel was dry I cut it using the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on a black cardbase. I then foam mounted the Coming Up Peonies image on it.

The die cut sentiment was cut using Love and Hugs word plate die from Glossy Fine Black Adhesive glitter paper and from some black fun foam. I raised the black glitter die cut on the fun foam and added it onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking my card today! Hope you enjoyed it :)!

 

Have a wonderful and crafty week!

Wildflowers Washi Tape

Hi peeps! Yay for Friday. Vera here to bring some more washi tape inspiration. What can I say, I just love playing with them. Who doesn’t love playing with pretty things, right?

Today I am showcasing Wildflowers washi tape.

IMG2842
For my 1st card, I adhere the washi tape to a piece of soft green cardstock. The beauty of washi tape, you can change its look by the base color you used. Then I die cut the wishes sentiment on the panel using Bold General Greeting Word Plate diesThen, die cut the sweet sentiment from Sweetheart World Plate dies set. Adhere panel to the crd base.

Die cut the wishes sentiment 3 more times from white cardstock to layer the sentiment to make it stand out from the rest of the panel. Die cut sweet sentiment again from gold foil cardstock and adhere to the card. Finish by stamping, heat embossed & die cut a butterfly using Beautiful Butterflies 1 set (adhere it with foam adhesive).

Now, on to the 2nd card. I was inspired by Effie’s card during the release (you can see the post  HERE)

IMG2843
I adhere the washi tape to a piece of  cardstockand then fussy cut it. Before adhering it to the card base, I blended some Rose Quartz ink to the card base. Then I partially ink up the Mini Hearts Cling Background stamp and stamped the corner of the card for a bit of accent. Adhere the cut out, stamp the sentiment from Dearest Peony set and finished by adding some Rose Champagne Sparkle sequins mix.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. It’s been a pretty crazy hectic week for me, so I sure am looking forward to a quiet weekend to just chill with the doggies. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Have a fabulous weekend everyone! Cheerrrssss……

Floral cards: diffrent ways

I started off by stamping beautiful flowers and leaves onto a watercolor paper with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them in white. Then, I colored all images using Holbein watercolors and cut them out with Today’s Cosmos Coordinating Dies.

To create the background, I ink blended Hot Tourmaline on a white A2 sized card panel. I stamped sentiment from Magnificent Magnolias in Noir onto it. Next, I adhered all images onto my card and added a few sequins from Blue Lagoon Couture Mix to finish it up.

My next card is showcasing the Wildflowers washi tape which was released yesterday.

At first, I adhered the Wildflowers washi tape on a piece of white cardstock and fussy cut the floral images. Then, I mounted the clusters on the top and on the bottom of the White Natural card base (Neenah). Next, I trimmed the excess.
