Wishing You The Best Birthday

Hi peeps. How are you doing? I hope you all stay safe and stay home during this uncertain time.

I try to keep myself occupied. I thought I’d be doing a lot of crafting, but in reality I feel like I craft less. Kind of hard to craft when I am anxious. But, I do notice that when I actually push myself to sit and just start stamping or coloring, I end up able to let go of my anxiety for a few hours.

I made this card last night and the springy colors reminds me of hope.

I’ve been playing with Spring Layered Alpha Stamp Bundle and after several tries, finally end up with color combo that I really love. For the letters I used Noir, Caribbean Turquoise, Azurite, Soft GreenSoft Garnet. I love that I can do the whole alphabets with a few extra vowels all at once. Die cut the alphabets using the matching dies.

I stamped , Peony Crush Cling Background to a panel using Soft Green ink pad.

As you notice it’s pretty bright green. The letters seem to just disappear into the background. So, I put this background aside and was going to go with all white background, because I really want the letters to shine and take the center stage. But, that’s kind of blah… I tried layering it with blue cardstock, but still not quite right.  

I was starting to feel like my mojo not co-operating at this time. Started getting annoyed at myself, then low and behold I remember that little thingy that can make a background looks more subtle. Vellum! Yay…. So, back to the original green peony background. 

Adding the vellum allowed me to keep the pretty background and let the letters take center stage at the same time. After arranging the word BIRTHDAY, I simply add a strip of sentiment on the middle to complete the card.

Phew… so close to giving up and thank goodness, my brain get a jolt. It made me realize how sometime I just need to look around and open all drawers to figure out what I can find to make things work. 🙂

I think turquoise and green is one of my favorite color combination. And, I still have more letters that I can play with to make another card. I just save those letters in a bowl for future use.

Well peeps, hope you enjoy today’s card & may be it will inspire you to take some time to craft a bit as well. Praying for everyone to make through this period safely. Sending virtual hugs for you all. Have a blessed day everyone.



Beautiful Roses

Hello, crafty friends!! My thoughts are with you at the confusing and difficult time!! I hope that you are staying safe and healthy!!

I have two cards to share with you today using two stunning rose stamp sets from the latest release!! Let’s get started!!

My first card features the beautiful Wild Rose Close Up stamp. This is a large 6 x 6 rose and so much fun to color!! I simply gold heat embossed the Wild Rose Close Up stamp onto Bristol smooth cardstock and watercolored it with Karin Brushmarker Pro markers.

I trimmed it down slightly and adhered it to a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ cardbase. The sentiment, from Story Rose, was gold heat embossed onto a strip of navy blue cardstock and popped up with foam adhesive.

My second card showcases the Story Rose stamp set.

I stamped it onto the lower right corner of white cardstock with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake ink and did some no-line coloring with Copics and colored pencils.

I stamped the Minor Stripes Cling Background stamp onto white cardstock with Noir Ink, cut a strip and adhered it at the top of an A2 cardbase. I trimmed my colored panel slightly and adhered it over the striped strip.

The sentiment, from Lovely Lily, was stamped with Noir Ink and clear heat embossed. A sprinkling of Glass Slippers Sequins completes the card!!

That’ll do it for me today!! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead and please stay safe!!!


It’s a Girl! It’s a Boy!

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with baby cards I made using Floral Balloon stamp set.


I started by stamping floral balloons on a white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed them in white. Then I colored images with Holbein watercolors. To cut out balloons, I used Floral Balloon SVG file.

I stamped mini balloons and clouds from Hey There Sentiments in Rose Qurtz (Baby Girl card) and Cali Blue (Baby Boy card) and fussy cut them all. I made “A BOY” and “A GIRL” by ink blending Soft Garnet (girl) and Cobalt Breeze (boy) onto a white cardstock and cut out letters with Modern Alphas Coverplate Die.


To create the background, I ink blended Rose Quartz and Cali Blue on white cardstock card panels. “Congrats” from Hey There Sentiments and “it’s” from 2d Ed Fill it in Sentiments were stamped in Noir. To embellish my cards, I added a few sequins from Summer Skies Couture Mix and Watermelon Twist Couture Mix.

Thats’ all from me today! Thank you so much for stopping by!

I stamped the title with Noir Dye and put all details together. I decorated my card using sequins and white splash.


I stamped the title on grey cardstock for my next card. Then I glued the lily and added the black splash. I also decorated it with sequins.

Have a nice day!

Alcohol Ink Coloring on the Lovely Lily

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today sharing a card featuring the Lovely Lily stamp set. I couldn’t resist coloring the big flower using alcohol ink 🙂 ! I’ve also made a video of my coloring process.

TT0311 1 WM

I stamped the Lovely Lily on an alcohol ink cardstock in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake ink to get an idea how it would look before adding the alcohol ink to create the background.

I sprayed rubbing alcohol on the alcohol ink cardstock and dropped Sunshine Yellow and Copic Refill Y06 on it. I blended the colors by blowing with a Marker Spritzer tool. I repeated the process till I was happy with the result. I then let the panel dry.

I stamped the Lovely Lily again in an embossing ink and heat embossed it in gold. I then started coloring the lily by dropping the Copic Refill Y06, Y19 and the alcohol ink in Valencia. I moved the inks to blend by tilting the panel. Small areas were colored using a micro applicator. I added lots of golden splatters on the background and a bit on the lily and let the panel dry. I hope the coloring process video could help you understand how I colored the image 🙂 . You can watch it here or on YouTube. The light in my video setting isn’t optimal, so the colors are a bit dull. Sorry about that.

I mounted the colored panel flat on a white cardbase and added the sentiments using some foam adhesives.

The sentiment was stamped and cut using the Layered Floral Alphas stamp set and the coordinating die. The letters were gold heat embossed and the florals were stamped in Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine, Soft Garden and Bright Fern. For the small sentiments I stamped the words from Basic Labels set in Lemon Drop and Coralline hybrid ink in an ombre fashion.

TT0311 4 WM

I colored a small piece of alcohol ink cardstock in Valencia, gold heat embossed a butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set on it and cut it using the coordinating die. I added the butterfly to the card and embellished it with two golden sequins from Pink Cosmo Twist and Princess Glam Couture Mix.

That’s it from me! Hope you enjoyed looking my card and the video!

Have a crafty day and stay healthy!


Wedding season

Hello, everyone! Anna here with you today and I’m sharing a wedding card I made using Lifetime of Love and Confetti Borders stamp sets. Spring is everywhere, and wedding season has started ))


I started by stamping images from Lifetime of Love stamp set in Caviaron a white cardstock. Then, I colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut them.

I cut out a card panel with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large) and ink blended Arctic Sky onto it. Next, I stamped Confetti Borders repeatedly on the card panel and heat embossed them in Glitter White.


To create the sentiment, I ink blended Rose Quartz on a stripe of white cardstock and stamped “So happy to celebrate…” onto it in Noir. I adhered all elements of my card on the card panel.

That’s all from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by!



Blue Peonies

Hello, friends!! I hope you had a great weekend!! We are enjoying the Spring temperatures here!! Although rain is in the forecast for the majority of this week, at least it seems as if the frigid temperatures are behind us…yay!!

I have three cards to share today!! They all use the Peony Memories Cardmaking Stamps and Coordinating Dies, along with sentiments from the 2d. Ed. Fill It In Sentiments. My pink and purple ink pads get plenty of love with florals, but my blues were feeling neglected…ha. So I pulled out three different blue collections and got busy!!

First, I used the Blues Collection

This collection includes Blue Diamond, Cobalt Breeze and Parisian Blue. I stamped the peonies from the Peonies Memories Cardmaking stamp set with these blues and the leaves with the Crystal Garden Collection. The centers of the flowers were stamped with Beach Blondie and Amber Citrine. Once all of the stamping was done, the Coordinating Dies were used to cut out all of the images.

I selected a cardstock to match the lightest blue ink, then cut it and a piece of white cardstock with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). The “YOU”, from 2d. Ed. Fill It In Sentiments, was stamped in the darkest ink and the smaller words in the middle color. The white panel was splattered with diluted inks in the lightest and medium colors of ink. The peonies were arranged and popped up with foam tape.

I did add some more dimension to the center of the flowers with a yellow gel pen. A sprinkling of Glass Slipper Sequins was the finishing touch!!

My second card used the Sky Blue Collection

This collection includes Cali Blue, Azurite & Deep Sapphire.

The card was created exactly the same as the first one. I have included individual photos so you can see the colors.

(Don’t tell the others, but I think this may be my favorite!)

Well, maybe this one is…

I used the Dusty Blues Collection here.

Arctic Sky, Miami Cool and Italian Denim are the colors included in this collection.

I don’t know…I can’t choose a favorite!! How about you? Which color combination is your fave? I’d love to know!!

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


Lily Hugs

Hi peeps. Vera here bringing you more Lovely Lily inspiration as promised on my post from last week.

Although, I have to admit that I made a big whoopsy. As I mentioned on my previous post I made 2 lily cards and will share the next one on today’s post. Well, as I was getting ready to type the post, I realized that I had made that card using some new release sets as well that I simply can’t share, yet. And, I was actually super excited to share that card because I was using quite a few set on 1 card.

Well, I have to wait to share that card till new release time & needless to say, I ended up making another one, so I can keep my promise of sharing another lily card. I really don’t mind at all as I can honestly say lily is one of my most favorite flower to color.

I decided to do watercolor on this lily and mix it up with some color pencil. Once I am done with the lily, I cut it with Brother Scan ‘n Cut & put it aside. For the background I simply stamped Peony Crush Cling Background with Versamark ink. This such a gorgeous set, I almost don’t want to cover it at all.
I trim the panel and adhere it to white cardstock base. I like to use white cardstock for base to make it easy writing on the inside. Then, I adhere the flower to the card. I adhere the stem flat with regular adhesive and the petal part with foam adhesive.

For the sentiment I used one of my favorite sentiment from Layered Floral Alpha Bundle and stamped it with Smoky Quartz ink pad.


During the process of this card, I am reminded that sometime it’s good to try to work with color or method that you’re not used to. I tend to avoid dark color, like this teal, but I am really glad that I give it a try as I actually love the way it look. I would like to encourage you to do the same. Use that cardstock or technique that you normally avoid. Who knows, the result might surprise you.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card and may your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers…….
