Thanks Floral Alphas

Hi peeps. Welcome to the last day or January. Vera here, bringing you end of the month inspiration on behalf of The Ton.

I was super excited when I saw the Floral Alphas set and I knew immediately that I have to have it. I love everything about this set. So, for today instead of just 1 card, I made 2 cards.

Here’s my 1st one.

IMG3005
For my 1st card I just have to use my favorite cool color combo. Blue and green. I started by stamping the letters, colored them and then cut it out using my Scan ‘n Cut. Next, I stamped the card panel with Magnolia Fields Cling Background stamp. Trim and adhere to the card base. Adhere all the letter. Finish by stamping & heat embossing You’re The Best from Layered Floral Alpha (another amazing set that I will highlight on my next post) on a piece of black cardstock and adding some mix size dew drops.

For my second card, I went with the warm colors. Don’t you just love the different look that you can get with this set?

IMG3006
Here, I stamped and heat embossed the letter with gold embossing powder. Color the flowers with Copic. Pretty much same step as the previous card, minus stamping the background. For this one, I want the gold and red to really pop, so I keep everything else clean & simple. I also added a strip of striped patterned paper because I feel it needed it.

Looking at this second card, almost make me want to create Christmas card with this set. I think it’ll be so pretty & festive.

Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s projects. Thank you so much for stopping by here and may your weekend starts off wonderfully. Hope January been good to you and here’s to awesome February. Cheers….

Pretty In Pink Valentine’s Card

Hello, crafty friends!! Happy Wednesday!!

I have a pretty, pink Valentine’s card to share with you today!! You could simply leave off the banner and use it for any occasion!!

Love-Val-day-1

I began by stamping the peony from Large Floral Peony and the alphabet from the Layered Floral Alpha onto white cardstock with Couture Inks. I used Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet, Red Sangria, Soft Garden, Bright Fern, Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, & Amber Citrine.  I used the Coordinating Dies to cut out the alphabet and fussy cut the blooms and leaves. Can I just say how incredible these Layered Floral Alpha stamps & dies are?? OMG…seriously amazing!!!! So many possibilities!!!!

Love-Val-day-2

For the background, I stamped the Delicate Polka Dots Cling Background Stamp onto white cardstock with Rose Quartz Ink. I trimmed it slightly and adhered it to a pink A2 size cardstock panel. After adhering the flowers and leaves in opposite corners, I trimmed away the excess. “Happy Valentine’s Day”, from XOXO Mini, was stamped onto a pink cardstock strip with Red Sangria Ink. The strip was trimmed into a fishtail banner and popped up, along with “love”, with foam adhesive. A few sequins from the Pink Diamond and Pink Bokeh Couture Mixes finish off the card!!

Love-Val-day-3

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! Enjoy the rest of your week!!

Red & Gold

Hello, crafty friends! Hope your week started off stress free!  It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards that I made using Vintage Type and Charmed Wildflower stamp sets from our 5th Anniversary Release! Have you enjoyed our release blog hop and the Instagram hops and found some favorites from our new release? I love the layering typewriter. It’s so unique! Let’s take a look at my first card!

TT0128 1 1 WM

I stamped the typewriter from Vintage Type in Valentine Red, Spiced Chai, Crystal Pewter and Light Onyx. It’s very easy to layer. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the paper of the typewriter image. I then fussy cut it and set it aside. You can use the coordinating cut file to cut the image.

TT0128 1 4 WM

I had a frame from a YUPO panel I colored using alcohol inks in Watermelon, Poppyfield and Gold Mixative. To add some more interest to the card I ink blended Valentine Red and Spiced Chai on a white cardbase  and splattered black and gold watercolor on it.

I mounted the red frame on the prepared cardbase using some foam adhesives and added the type writer on it. For some shine and sparkle I covered the typewriter with glitter using a clear glitter pen and the keys using Glossy Accents. I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT0128 1 3 WM

The second card is featuring Charmed Wildflower stamp set. As I didn’t get the stamp set at that time I worked with a digital version of it. I printed it on some Neenah solar white paper and cut it with ScanNCut. You could use the coordinating cut file to cut the image.

TT0128 2 1 WM

I colored the pretty floral cluster with Copic markers. I used R20, 22, 46 and 89 for the large flower and RV10, 11 and 14 for the morning glories. The leaves were colored in warm gray colors and E00, 31, 33 and 35. Then I added details using Polychromos colored pencils to the image. After the coloring was completed, I foiled the outline in gold.

TT0128 2 5 WM

For the background I used the YUPO panel I mentioned above. I cut the A2 sized alcohol inked YUPO using four dies from the Double Stitched Rectangle dies. I used a frame from the cut panel for the first card. I foam mounted the largest frame on a white cardbase and adhered the rest flat on it. I also cut a smaller frame from some white cardstock to fill the gap of the missing frame. The image was adhered on the card and the sentiment from Lean Back stamp set was foam mounted on it. Some Medallion Gold sequins were my finishing touch for this card as well.

Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a great day!

Hugs,

Happy Valentine`s Card

Hello everyone! Olga with you today!

IMG_7913

I created a couple of  love cards, because St. Valentine’s Day is coming.

IMG_7882

I used Better in Red and Smooched for my first card. I stamped the lips with Pink Derby dye and Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid. Then I toned the background and made the effect of watercolor splashes. I applied Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to it.

IMG_7888

I stamped the lipstick using Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine, Light Onyx, Smoky Quartz, Pink Derby and Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid. Then I cut it.

I stamped the title from Smooched using Noir and sentiment “Happy Valentine`s Day” from XoXo mini set.

IMG_7891

I stamped the peonies from Peony Dreams Cluster with watermark ink. Then I embossed it with Golden powder. I colored it with markers.

IMG_7903

I stamped and embossed the title using XoXo mini set and Perfect Fit Sentiments.

I decorated my cards with Pink Bokeh Couture Mix.

Have a nice day!

Morning Glory Hello

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with a floral card I made using Morning Glory Greetings stamp set.

SONY DSC

I began by cutting out two flower clusters from white cardstock using Morning Glory Greetings SVG Coordinating Cut File. Then, I stamped morning glories onto them in Caviar. I colored all images with Holbein watercolors and Faber-Castell pencils.

For the background, I ink blended Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and Peach Blossomon the left side of the card panel and splatted it with left-over paint.

SONY DSC

I adhered all images on the card panel. “Just saying” was stamped in Plum Wine and “HELLO” was stamped in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake.

I embellished the card with a few sequins from Cotton Candy Puff Couture Mix.

That’s all from me today. Have a great Friday, friends!

LOVE trio

Hello and happy Monday everyone! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a card trio in the same layout. It has started with one card design idea, then it turned into a card duo in my mind, but while I was making the cards, I decided to add one more 🙂 ! You’ll understand the way of my thought, if you look at the cards 😀 .

TT0113 all 1 WM

The main idea of the design is to split the panel in two by a large sentiment die cut. I used Brushed Love die to achieve the design, as the Valentine’s day is coming ❤ !  I wanted a floral background with smaller flowers, so I chose Folk Art Florals cling stamp. I white heat embossed it on a Canson watercolor paper panel and loosely colored it using Color Burst in Cerulean Blue, Peony and Orchid. I added a bit of color to the flowers for more definition. After the panel was dry, I cut it using Brushed Love die. Actually I wanted to switch the bottom part with a white panel but the sentiment was camouflaging too much. So I decided to make another panel to combine with the floral element. I ink blended an A2 sized Neenah solar white paper panel in Soft Garnet, Plum Wine and Azurite and adhered transparent glitter foil on it. I cut the panel in the same way like the floral panel using Brushed Love die. I made one more panel in white, also cut with Brushed Love die.

Now it’s time to assemble the cards. I mixed up the three elements to get three different designs. For the small sentiment part I used Brushed Love stamp set.

TT0113 3 2 WM

TT0113 3 4 WM

For the first one I foam mounted the top part of the floral panel and the glitter sentiment die cut on a white cardbase. The sentiment was stamped in an ombre fashion using Plum Wine , Azurite and Deep Sapphire. I added a thin strip of transparent glitter paper on the bottom. Some Glass Slippers round confetti were scattered and the card was finished.

Tt0113 2 2 WM

Tt0113 2 3 WM

The second one has the top part of the glitter panel, white sentiment die cut and the bottom part of the floral panel. I cut the Brushed Love from pink fun foam and raised the sentiment die cut using it. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of purple cardstock. I added three clear dew drops to finish off the card.

Tt0113 1 2 WM

On the last one I adhered the glittery bottom part flat on a white cardbase and raised the floral sentiment die cut on a white fun foam. I added white heat embossed “sending”  and three clear dew drops to the card.

TT0113 1 4 WM

That’s it from me today! It was a card design which is relatively quick and easy to make. I hope I was able to inspire you with my cards!

Have a wonderful and crafty week, friends!!!

Hugs,

TaeEun

 

Cosmos Love & Hugs

Hi peeps! Happy New Year. Hope you starts off 2020 beautifully. I started mine with getting a cold. Booo…., right?! I rarely get sick, but this cold really caught me and 10 days later I am still trying to get rid of my cough. Not fun…

Anyhooo, cough or no cough, luckily I am still okay with crafting. Yay… Thank goodness. I was lethargic for a couple days, but forcing myself to stay active after those 2 days of rest. For today, I made this card using an oldie but goodie set, the beautiful Smiling Cosmos set.

IMG2992.1
It’s been a while since I last play with this set. I started by stamping the image and then colored it Copic markers.
IMG2992.2

Once I am done with coloring, I adhere the colored panel to the card base. Then, I trim a thin and thick panel of white cardstock and layer it on top of the colored image. Cut a strip of stripe patterned paper and adhere it to the card.

I finished the card by stamping sentiment from Dearest Peony set. Seriously, this set has some of my favorite sentiment to use. I just think they’re so well done. And, of course, I had to adhere some mixed size dew drops. Favorite embellishment!

IMG2992.3
Looks like this color combo is one of my go to color combo. I just realized that I have used this color quite often. Do you have a go to color that you use often without even realizing it?

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card. May your weekend be a good one & all the best for 2020. Cheers….

Hello – Coming Up Morning Glories

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! Is anyone else ready for spring? Once the holidays are over, I am sooooo ready for warmer weather and FLOWERS!!! At least I can have flowers in my craft room year-round…lol!!

I have a colorful “Hello” card to share with you today!! I love using the “hello” greeting on the outside of my card, then it can be used for any occasion by personalizing the inside…on your birthday, thinking of you, get well, etc. You get the picture!! Let’s get started!!

hello-morning-glories-1

I began by white heat embossing the Coming Up Morning Glories stamp set onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and watercolored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I trimmed the panel slightly and adhered it offset onto a panel of coral-ish cardstock.

hello-morning-glories-2

I die-cut the Hello Word Die once from the coral cardstock and twice from white cardstock, stacked and adhered them together. After adhering the greeting onto the lower right corner, I added some Aqua Shimmer Pen and Crystal Glaze to it for some shine. A few sequins from the Summer Soiree Couture Mix draws your eye to the greeting.

hello-morning-glories-3

Thanks for dropping by today!! I hope that I’ve brightened your day a bit!!
