More anemones

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here today with a couple of floral cards I made using new dies from July 2020 Die Release.

The first card features Anemone Spray Die.

I started off by cutting anemone cluster three times from white cardstock and stacked all layers together. Then, I cut out oval panel from white cardstock using Double Stitched Oval Nested Dies. I created an impression in this oval panel with Anemone Spray Die using dry embossing with dies technique. I colored it with Holbein watercolors and adhered white anemone cluster on it.

For the background, I stamped Freestyle Stripes Cling Background in Rose Quartz. “Sending many thanks” was stamped from Easy Expressions Thanks stamp set with Caviar and Peach Blossom and cut out with Easy Expressions Thanks Coordinating Die. I added some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots to the card to finish it up.

Another card is showcasing Layered Anemone Dies Bundle – July 2020.

First, I cut out two layers of beautiful anemones. Then I colored them using Valentine Red and Lipstick Red. I die cut the Gathered Anemone Coverplate Die from dark grey cardstock and adhered the two layers cut from the layering dies behind the coverplate die.

To make the background, I stamped Modern Plaid Cling Background on a white card base in Bright Fern. For the sentiment, I stamped “thinking of you” from Easy Expressions stamp set with Noir and Beach Blondie and cut out with Easy Expressions Coordinating Die.

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

Lovely Hibiscus

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies from our July Die Release.

TT0716 all WM

For the first card I used only the outline die cut and colored the hibiscus with alcohol ink and for the second one I layered up watercolored die cut pieces.

TT0716 1 1 WM

To make this card I stared off by die cutting the outline of the Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies. I cut it three times and adhered one of them on a A2 sized Yupo panel. I then applied alcohol inks on it. For the petals I used Mountain Rose, Watermelon and Red Pepper and for the leaves Meadow ink. I blended the alcohol ink with rubbing alcohol and splattered a bit of alcohol on the panel and let it dry.

TT0716 1 4 WM

After the alcohol inked panel was dry I stacked two white die cut Hibiscus outlines on the first layer. I die cut the stamen from some yellow cardstock and added it to the hibiscus.

TT0716 1 2 WM

For the sentiment I used one from my stash which was stamped using Easy Expressions: Birthday stamp set. I gold heat embossed the scripty part and stamped the rest in Noir and cut it using the coordinating die. I finished off the card by adding three small Medallion Gold sequins to the stamen.

TT0716 1 3 WM

And this is the second card.

TT0716 2 1 WM

To start off I cut the layers of the Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies from Canson Mixed Media paper and colored them using Color Burst. I used Wisteria, Peony, Orange and Lemon Yellow for the layers of hibiscus flower and Sap Green, Phthalo green and Sepia for the leaves.

After the pieces were dry I assembled the flower and added the outline which was cut from some light gold shimmer cardstock.

TT0716 2 4 WM

To create the background I watercolored a watercolor paper panel in Payne’s gray, Phthalo green and gold, let it dry and cut it using the Double Pierced Rectangle Coverplate die. I adhered one frame using foam tape and the rest flat on a white cardbase. The sentiment was stamped using Easy Expressions set and cut with the coordinating die. To finish off the card I added some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT0716 2 3 WM

This huge hibiscus, filling the whole A2 panel, is so classy and gorgeous! Have you checked out our  July 2020 Die Release ? Along with this beautiful Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies eight more gorgeous die sets were debuted, so hope you’ll check it out, if you haven’t already 🙂 !

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Trio Lily Birthday Wishes

Hi all! Vera here today showcasing more layering die cut idea.

Today, I am playing with the lovely Lily Trio Layering Coverplate Dies.

For this card, I started by die cutting all the 4 layers from white cardstock. Then I inked blend Orchid Crush & Grand Fuschia to the layers. I only used 2 colors for the bottom 3 layers. Simply by varying the pressure and intensity of the color I can get 3 different shade.

I was debating on what color background I want to use. I tried several different colored cardstock and just not quite happy with any of them, so I decided to do a watercolor background. Can’t go wrong with watercolor in my book. 🙂

Once it dry, simply adhere the layered lilies on top of it and adhere everything to the card base. For the sentiment, I used sentiment from Easy Expressions from my stash. I love how handy this sets are. From just doing it once, I can have lots of extra sentiments ready to use.

Lily is definitely one of my favorite flower to play with. They’re so fun to color and simply so pretty. I’ll be playing with more variation of colors for sure. Now, if only I have more time in the day. Hah!

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card and may your week be a good one. Cheers….

Lily Layering Dies Duo

Hello, crafty friends!! I have a couple of cards to share with you today that feature some of the new dies from the latest release!!

These layered dies make pulling card together a breeze!! I can’t get enough!!

We’ll start with the orange one…

I die cut all of the layers of the lily from yellow, orange, dark orange and gold glitter cardstock using the Country Lily Layering Dies. I cut each layer twice, as I wanted two lilies on my card.

I added a gold glitter frame cut from the Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate to a blue panel cut with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Nested Dies.

The sentiment, from the Easy Expressions Birthday stamp set, was stamped with Cosmopolitan Pink and Noir Ink, then cut out with the Coordinating Die. A few Medallion Gold Sequins finish off the card.

Now for the purple one…

I die-cut all of the layers of the Lily Trio Layering Coverplate Dies from shades of purple and silver glitter paper, then adhered them together.

I trimmed a background panel down to A2 size from blue cardstock and adhered it behind the die-cuts.

This time, I used a sentiment from the Easy Expressions stamp set, stamped with Violet Fringe and Noir Ink. I cut it out with the Coordinating Die and added it to the top, left corner of the card.

That’s it!! Like I said, these cards come together so easily!! All you need to do is add a sentiment and you’re done!!

Thanks for hanging out with me today!!! Have a great day and I’ll see you soon!!!

Monarch Butterfly Dies Bundle

Hello, friends! Anna here today, sharing a card I made using Monarch Butterfly Dies Bundle. This bundle combines Monarch Butterfly Coverplate die with the coordinating Layering Die collection.

IMG_0705(3)

I started off by die cutting a card panel from black glitter cardstock with Monarch Butterfly Coverplate Die. Then I cut out a solid backing of butterfly using Monarch Butterfly Layering Dies and blended inks (Rose Quartz, Peach Blossom and Warm Hazelnut) on it.

For the background, I stamped Mini Dots Cling Background with Caviaron a white card base. Next, I adhered the card panel with the butterfly on the card base.

IMG_0714(1)

To make the sentiment, I used a combination of letters from the Skinny Alphas Coverplate Die and Easy Expressions Thanks stamps and matching die. “HELLO” was cut out two times from light pink cardstock. “Thanks a bunch” was stamped from Easy Expressions Thanks stamp set with Caviarand Peach Blossom and cut out with Easy Expressions Thanks Coordinating Die.

Lastly, I embellished my card with a few dots from 1. Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.

July 2020 Die Release

Hello and welcome back everyone!! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and let’s kick off this lovely Monday with our new July 2020 Die Release!

Today, we’re debuting 9 different die collections – if you’ve been wanting our layered floral SVG files as dies, the wait is over! Everything will begin shipping tomorrow. Be sure to scroll down to check out all the bundles available including a total bundle of our entire July 2020 Die Release. All new dies will begin shipping tomorrow!

BACK IN STOCK ANNOUNCEMENT

We have brought back our Power Pumps Coordinating Dies! This has been very popular so we decided to restock them.

We have also restocked the following dies:

Let’s introduce our new dies! First up is our Tall and Skinny Alphas Coverplate Dies.

Tall and Skinny Alphas Coverplate Dies

Our newest coverplate alpha dies feature a tall, skinny and modern font. What’s different about these coverplate dies is that I separated the vowels (and Ys), most used consonants and the least used consonants (QVWXZ). These die cut letters measure approximately .5 x 2.25 inches – the width will vary slightly depending on the letter.

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

You can cut these letters out on different colored cardstock and store them in envelopes or clear pouches for future use.

I started off by blending inks (Lemon Drop, Peach Blossom, Hollywood Star Dye Inks) onto an A2 panel. Next I adhered a rectangular skinny frame created using our A2 skinny frames coverplate die. Then I die cut the happy using our new Tall and Skinny Alphas Coverplate Dies on white cardstock and adhered the letters in the center of the blended panel. Lastly I added the scripty birthday sentiment created using our Many Sentiments dies.

Here’s a travelers notebook layout that I created (of my little boo bear) using our new Tall and Skinny Alphas. Other products: Butterfly Layering Dies, Quick Labels Stamp and Die, Leafy Bits Die, Peony Memories stamp and die.

Next up is our Trio Anemone Layering Cluster Dies.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!
Trio Anemone Layering Cluster Dies

This collection features 3 dies that cut out a total of 9 pieces. Each anemone has two lower “body” layers and the top outline layer. What’s unique about these dies is that they’re clustered. Similar to our patent pending grouped layering stamps, each layer is clustered so that you can cut each layer in one pass through your die cutting machine.

My design style changes each year and 2020 has really been amazing because of our patent pending grouped layering designs. I wanted to apply a similar concept to these layering dies so that we can spend less time with the mechanical aspects of crafting (the nitty gritty ) and more time creating and enjoying the art of crafting and making pretty things.

Created by Anna using our Trio Anemone Layering Cluster Dies, Many Sentiments Dies, Leafy Bits die and Anemone Border stamp.

CRAFTING TIP: If you don’t have different colors for layering dies, you can die cut all the layers on white cardstock and blend ink onto those die cut layers. Use layering inks and a blending brush to attain multiple shades of color.

For this card, I die cut and layered my anemones. Next I blended some ink (Lemon Yellow, Bright Emerald, Ballet Slippers Dye Inks) onto an A2 panel and splattered white acrylic paint. I used our Double Pierced Oval Frame Coverplate die to create that oval border frame in the back. Once I popped that frame up with foam tape, I popped up the layered anemones and some additional Leafy Bits that I die cut. Lastly I added the thanks sentiment created using our Many Sentiments dies.

When you layer the 2 lower body layers of these anemones, you can use them under the floral outlines in our Gathered Anemone Coverplate Die.

Gathered Anemone Coverplate Die

This single coverplate die features a gorgeous anemone design. You can back the coverplate die cut with any colored cardstock or glitter cardstock to create a quick card. If you want to take it a step further, you can use the coordinating Trio Anemone Layering Cluster Dies and back the floral portions of the panel.

Just Saying Hello

Hi there creative peeps. Vera here today. Happy 1st of July. As crazy as 2020 been, I am pretty amaze that the first half of the year already passed. Time really flies, doesn’t it?

Anyway, I am bringing you a fun inspiration on behalf of The Ton. I am showcasing the gorgeous Lovely Peony Layering dies.

I started by die-cutting all the layers from a piece of white cardstock and then coloring the layers using Bright Emerald, Caribbean Turquoise and Hot Tourmaline. For the leaves I used Soft Garden & Bright Fern. This is my favorite way of coloring layered die-cut pieces. I just love the color gradient achieved by doing it this way.

Except for the very top layer, I die-cut it from colored cardstock. Then I put them all together. Next, I die-cut a rectangle frame using Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Coverplate and I used the second of the largest frame.

Next, I adhere the layered flower with foam adhesive. For the sentiment I used one from Easy Expressions stamp & dies that I saved from my last project for The Ton.

Finished by adding a few mixed size dew drops. I love the way this card turned out, maybe because I get to use one of my favorite color?? Hah… I was going to say my favorite color, but then I realize I have more than 1 favorite color. 😉

Well peeps, hope you enjoy today’s card I know it’s been a weird, crazy time, however I wish you all a wonderful July and that you can find something in good every day. Hugs…

Charmed Wildflowers Birthday Card

Hey, friends!! How’s it going? I hope you had a great weekend!!

I really love the Charmed Wildflowers stamp set, so when Effie release the Coordinating Dies, I was so excited!!! I love that it cuts the areas between the flowers!!

My Tombow markers have been pretty neglected lately, so I broke them out for a little watercoloring session. I white heat embossed the Charmed Wildflowers stamp set onto Bristol cardstock, colored it with my Tombow markers, then cut it out with the Coordinating Die.

For the background panel, I brushed streaks of a yellow marker all over a panel of Bristol cardstock and blended it out with water. Once it was completely dry, I white heat embossed the Delicate Polka Dots background stamp onto it. I die-cut the Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate Die from white cardstock and adhered one of the rectangles to my background panel. The watercolored die-cut was adhered near the bottom, right corner.

For the sentiment, I used a combination of letters from the Skinny Alphas Coverplate Die and a word from the Many Sentiments Coverplate Dies. I die-cut them three times from white cardstock, stacked and adhered them together, then added them to the top of my card. A few Pink Sugar Sequins finished it off!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a great week!!

Sweet Bouquet

Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing an anniversary card with you!

I colored the beautiful Sweet Bouquet image using Copic markers and added camouflaging Mega Confetti Numbers to it. I used the Mega Confetti Numbers coordinating dies as standalone dies and it worked great!!! Let’s take a look!

TT0625 1 WM

To start off I stamped the Sweet Bouquet in a light ink on a Neenah solar white paper panel and colored the image using Copic markers. To color the big coral flower I used R20s. The pink flower was colored in RV10, RV21, RV23, RV13 and RV14. For the small yellow flowers I used Y02, Y06, Y15 and Y17.  The leaves were colored in various YG and G colors.

TT0625 5 WM

After I finished coloring the image, I also colored the background in dark navy using Copic B99 and added darker shade using N9. After the coloring was completed, I stamped the stamen in an embossing ink and gold heat embossed them.

Next I cut the numbers using Mega Confetti Numbers coordinating dies from the colored panel and heat embossed the numbers in clear iridescent embossing powder to add some sparkle and shine.

TT0625 2 WM

I splattered white opaque ink on the background of the colored panel and cut it using a Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Die. I mounted the panel flat on a navy cardbase and added the numbers raising them using die cut fun foam numbers.

The sentiment is from Layered Floral Alphas stamp set. I stamped it in True Navy on a strip of white cardstock. I foam mounted the sentiment strip and scattered some Glass Slippers sequins to finish off my card.

TT0625 4 WM

Hope you enjoyed looking my anniversary card today :)! I had a blast coloring the whole panel using Copic markers 🙂 !

Thank you so much for visiting!

Happy crafting!

Hugs,

TaeEun

 

Roses & Peonies

Hi all. Vera here.

I really been enjoying playing with the layered flower sets from The Ton and for my post I decided to play with Rose Patch & Peony Memories Cardmaking set. I was only planning to do 1 card, but since I have quite a few flowers to play with, ended up with 2 cards.

For the flowers I stamped Rose Patch in Bright Emerald, Caribbean Turquoise and Hot Tourmaline. For the leaves I used Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Deep Emerald. Then I stamped the Peonies with Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star and Red Sangria.

Once I have all the pieces stamped, I die cut them using the matching Rose Patch and Peony Memories Cardmaking dies. Next, I simply paying with the pieces and arrange them on the card.

The beauty of using these layered flowers sets, you are most likely ended up with enough pieces to make 2 cards. I mean, you could definitely use them all in 1 card, but hey, I love the idea of getting 2 cards done at the same time. 🙂

Before adhering the flowers, I added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of the cards and then adhere all the pieces.

For the sentiment for my 1st card, I used the 2nd Edition Fill In Sentiment and finished the card by adding some enamel drops.

Once I finished the first card, I used the remaining flowers and leaves on the 2nd card.

For the sentiment on the 2nd card, I used one of the sentiment from Easy Expressions and die cut it using the coordinating dies. I have to admit I rarely die cut my sentiment, but this set really grows on me and I love having the extra sentiments ready to use for the next card.

Well peeps, that’s all I have for today. Hope you enjoy the cards & may your week starts off wonderfully! Cheers…

Vera
