Fantastic Feathers

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here and today I’m sharing a card featuring the Fantastic Feathers stamp set.

I started by stamping the peacock with Caribbean Turquoise dye, Iris Bloom dye, Beach Blondie, True Navy, Azurite and Amber Citrine. I then fussy cut the image.

To create the background, I cut out foliage pattern from masking paper using 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate Die and added it to my card panel. I ink blended Ballet Slippers at the top of this panel and removed masking paper.

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Noir. “WONDERFUL” was stamped in Plum Wine.

I attached the beautiful bird to the card panel. To embellish I used a Glossy Accents (one drop to every “eye” of the feathers).

Thans so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!

2019 SPRING | SUMMER COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

Coffee Lover 2019

Hi everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a very special post. We are so excited to join the super fun 2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The Ton is proud to be a super sponsor for this hop. You can link up your newly created coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects with Spring or Summer theme for a chance to win many prizes, including one coffee/tea themed stamp of choice by The Ton!

This hop runs from Friday, May 3 – Friday, May 10. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog on Sunday, May 12th. See all the details HERE.

I’ve made a spring themed card. After a long Winter finally blooming Spring flowers can be seen everywhere now.  A lovely small wildflower bouquet made during a walk could embellish your table. Maybe you put the bouquet in a cute coffee cup :).

CLBH 1 WM

I started off by stamping the cup from Tea Party set in Hampton White pigment ink on a Toned Tan paper panel. I masked the cup and continued stamping the saucer and the floral cluster from Wildflower Bouquet Builder set.

I colored the image with Luminance colored pencils. I chose soft colors for the flowers and the cup to give the card a springlike touch. I fussy cut the right side of the image along the outline and glued the panel on a soft pink cardstock. I cut the pink cardstock again along the outline leaving a thin pink border.

The sentiment is from Hug in a Mug set. I heat embossed the sentiment on the white cardbase in Rose Gold embossing powder. I foam mounted the front panel with the image on the cardbase. To finish off I added some sequins from Summer Soiree and Coral Necklace Couture Mix.

Floral Sympathy Card

Hello everyone! Hope the month of May started off great for you all! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral sympathy card. It isn’t a good feeling when a sympathy card is needed. But as card makers we can give some handmade love and comfort to someone in sorrow.

My card for today is featuring Wildflower Bouquet Builder set from our Spring release. This set includes several cute and cheery wildflower cluster images. But I tried this time to color the flowers in warm and soft tone except for the big red flowers to match the images with the occasion.

TT0501 1 WM

I started off by ink blending a A2 sized white cardstock panel in Lemon Drop and Peach Blossom after masking the middle part.  I left the mask and started stamping the floral clusters from Wildflower Bouquet Builder set in Lemon Drop on the upper and lower part of the masked area.

TT0501 CU1 WMx

I colored the floral images using Prismacolor colored pencils . After coloring was done I removed the mask. I then gold heat embossed the sentiment from Penned Sentiments set on the masked area.

TT0501 CU2 WMx

I cut the front panel using Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered two thin strips of Adhesive Foil paper gold on the borders between the sentiment and the colored area. I then foam mounted the panel on a kraft cardbase. To finish off I scattered some Medallion Gold sequins and little clear sequins from Coral Necklace Couture Mix and added white splatters using a white gel pen.

That’s it from me today! Hope you like my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful day!

Card With Wildflowers

Hello! Olga with you today. I created one card with interesting background.

IMG_2305

At first, I stamped Daisy Fields on the cardstock with watermark ink. Than I embossed it with Clear Powder. I colored the background using Distress Oxide and Gold watercolor.

IMG_2312

I stamped the flower of Wildflower Bouquet Builder with Noir Dye and cut it.

IMG_2307

Than I created the title. I stamped the sentiments of  The Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0 on the black cardstock with watermark ink and embossed it with White Powder.

I decorated my card with watercolor splashes and sequins.

I hope you like my yellow card! Have a nice day!

Have The Best Day Ever

Hi everyone. Vera here. The weather been so lovely here in Texas that I can’t help creating a project with spring feeling to it.

For my card today, I just had to reach this beautiful oldie but goody cover plate, called Best Day Ever. I feel like I didn’t give this cover plate enough love & it’s time to do something about it, because it really is such a pretty & delicate design. 🙂
IMG2871.1
I am currently loving playing with alcohol pearl ink and just couldn’t resist to use it to create a pretty, colorful background for this card. I mean, how pretty is this rainbow background?

IMG2871.2
I love that you don’t have to have it look perfect. I pretty much just go back and forth a few times and that’s it. I used Yupo paper here and it helps in creating the softer color.

Next, I die cut the design and simply adhere it directly on top of the Yupo paper, trim them to be slightly smaller than the card base.
IMG2871.3

I was going to add butterfly to complete the card, but then I just have to use my favorite birdies from Nesting Peonies set.

I really love the way this card turned out. It’s always give me satisfaction when a card turned out exactly the way I envisioned it. Cause you know that’s not always the case. Hah…

I hope you enjoy today’s card as much as I enjoy making it. I wish you a beautiful weather and a beautiful day. Cheers…

Daisy Fields – Sending You Hugs

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate!!

I have a card to share with you today that features the stunning Daisy Fields stamp! This is a large 5.75″ x 5.75″ background stamp and it’s so much fun to color. In fact, I just started on one with Copics. For this one, I used watercolor markers.

daisy-fields-4

I made a square 5.5″ x 5.5″ card…I just can’t bear to cut much of it off!! I started by stamping the Daisy Fields image onto Bristol paper and white heat embossing it. I colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers and then trimmed it down a little smaller than 5.5″ x 5.5′. I die-cut “hugs” from the watercolored panel using a die from the Love & Hugs Word Plate Dies. “Sending you”, from Basic Banners, was white heat embossed onto a strip of blue cardstock and adhered over the negative die-cut. I adhered the panel to blue cardstock in the same color as the sentiment strip. A few sequins from the Blue Lagoon Couture Mix were the finishing touch.
