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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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!

Both sets coordinate nicely together so you can mix and match the images/die cuts between our Lush Plants and Petite Planters.
We had to add a nice array of vases and planters for our new greenery images so I designed this 4×6 set of 8 vase/planter images! Aren’t those hanging planters darling?
