Hello and welcome back! I’m back with an easily stamped, layered flamingo print card using our Darling Flamingos.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by stamping a fun and simple background print using the left facing flamingo stamps (Rose Quartz Dye Ink + Warm Hazelnut Dye Ink).

For this set, the body of the flamingos comprise of three layers and the legs have two layers. For the background, I only stamped the first solid layers to create my print. After I stamped my solid flamingos, I took the smaller monstera leaf and tiny spray stamp (Mini Wild Florals, Fern Dye Ink) and filled in the negative areas of my background. Once complete, I trimmed about an 1/8th of an inch from each side of my background print panel and then mounted the panel onto a piece of coral cardstock.

Next I stamped a completely layered flamingo (Ruby Collection Layering Inks, Noir Dye Ink, Warm Hazelnut Dye Ink and Found Topaz Dye Ink) and then die cut the image.

Then I created a matted sentiment strip using a piece of white and coral cardstock which I adhered together. Next, I mounted the flamingo onto my sentiment strip and stamped the sentiment. Lastly, I mounted the sentiment onto my card and added some of our soft Peach Mousse Sequins – 8,6,5,4mm, Mixed sequins to complete my project.

That’s all from me today! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Birthday Morpho

Hey there!! Brenda, with you today. I just love the butterfly die-cuts that Effie designed!! I used the Pop-Up Butterfly Dies: Morpho for today’s card.

birthday-morpho1

I began by die-cutting the Morpho Butterfly six times from heavyweight white cardstock. These dies were meant to be used to pop up off the page or the inside of a card. I just cut off the pop-up portion. The negative pieces of the bottom die were colored with Copic markers, then four of the white die cuts were adhered onto it. I cut the background from white cardstock with the 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate Die and adhered it to a white panel cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle (Small), for a tone-on-tone look. I adhered the butterfly to the background, filled the “wells” of the butterfly with Tonic Crystal Glaze and set it aside to dry overnight. The final die-cut layer of the butterfly was heated embossed with silver embossing powder twice and adhered on top of the stacked butterfly dies. I love this stained glass look!! The sentiment, from Anemone Bouquet, was heat embossed in silver onto a strip of blue cardstock. and popped up with foam adhesive. Finally, Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix was scattered around the butterfly.

Birthday Carnations

Hi there lovely peeps. How’s it going?  Vera here today bring you mid week inspiration from The Ton.

I decided to dig on some older sets and give them some love. Well, they’re really not that old, they were released this year, just earlier this year. 🙂 Growing up, my favorite flowers were carnations, so feeling a bit melancholy, I  chose to play with Fresh Cut Carnations.

IMG0191
To start, I stamped the flowers & the stems in various colors. From The Ton I used Soft Orchid, Hollywood Star & Lemon Drop. Then I die cut all the pieces with the coordinating Fresh Cut Carnations dies. Put these aside.

Next, I work on the background. I stamped the Buildable Woodgrain. That’s the good thing about playing with older set, it reminds you how great they are. I love that this woodgrain set looks so real.

IMG0191.2
Next, I arranged the flowers on the panel. At first, I was only going to put 2 flowers, but I changed my mind and decided 3 is better. The professional said odd number is better for design and I agreed. As you can see, well, hopefully you can see, I like to add dimesnion to my card. I adhere the bottom part of the panel just with regular glue, but add foam tape to the top of the stem. In my opinion, it makes it less boring.

Adhere the panel to the card base & work on the sentiment. For the sentiment I used the word Happy die from Peony Laurel coordinating dies and colored it with Copic. Finished by stamping the word birthday from Peony Laurel set in Violet Fringe and I am done. 🙂

Playing with some older sets sure get me thinking. What’s your favorite flower set from The Ton? For me, I can’t just pick one. Nesting Peonies & Peony Laurel are among my top ones.

Well peeps, that’s all for me for today. Hope you enjoy today’s card & hope your week been a good one and continue to be good. Cheers….

Autumn card

Video: Congrats Wall Gallery Frame Card

frames simple

Photo taken against our Gray Noise Photo Backdrop Board

Hi, everyone! I’m back with a very simple, one layer wall gallery card created with our Vintage Frames stamp set.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I stamped my first frame near the lower left hand portion of my A2 panel using our crisp black Noir Dye Ink. This is where I’ll be stamping my sentiment so I wanted to make sure to position this one first. Next, I continued stamping around that initial frame. I made sure to mix and match the ornate frames with the more modern frames. I also made sure there was a nice balance of square and rectangle frames with the round and oval frames. Another rule of thumb when creating/stamping a wall gallery is to make sure you don’t stamp them in a straight line. For my wall gallery, I wanted a more asymmetrical result.

TIP: When you ink up the more intricate frame stamps, you want to make sure there is a very light coating of ink on the surface of the stamp. If there is too much ink on the surface \prior to stamping, your image will stamp more solid and you will lose some of the detail. 

Once I finished stamping my frames, I stamped the congrats sentiment and then trimmed my panel about 1/8 of an inch on each side. Then I adhered my panel onto a side folding A2 cardbase.

frames simple2

If you know exactly where you plan on stamping your frames, this card will take you less than 5 minutes to complete. However, this took me about 15 minutes due to the layout planning but it’s still one of the fastest cards I have made in a while.

So that’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Video : Celebration Rose Cluster Birthday Card

Hello and welcome back, everyone! I have a watercolored birthday card using our Celebration Rose Cluster stamp set.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by partially stamping this beautiful cluster image onto the two corners of my A2 sized watercolor panel (Canson XL 140lb paper). Since I’m doing some partial stamping, I spoon on our Rose Gold embossing powder each time I stamp to ensure that I don’t overlap my images. After I heat embossed my florals and foliage, I went ahead and embossed the sentiment from the same set onto the card.

Once all of my embossing was complete, I started doing some wet in wet watercoloring using my Dr. Ph Martins Radiant Concentrated liquid watercolors. I used Scarlet for the roses and Grass Green and Lemon Yellow for my background. Once my painting was complete and the panel dried, I added stitching to the edges using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large Die Collection.

For the final touch, I added some of our Clear Rhinestones to add a dew drop like effect to my project.

That’s all from me today! I hope you enjoyed my card and video!
