Merry Christmas!

Hello and Happy Monday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here sharing a Christmas card today. I’ve made this card using some Fall colors to try something different :)!

TT1223 1 WM

I started off by gold heat embossing the gift boxes from Holiday Trio stamp set. I colored the three boxes in Olive Jade, Harvest Moon from Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and a yellow Wink of Stella pen. I also colored the bows in the same colors like the boxes very lightly.

TT1223 5 WM

I masked the bows and stamped small images from Folk Art Christmas Tree stamp set on the gift wrap. I stamped a branch in Everglade Moss on the green box, a small poinsettia on the orange box in Peach Blossom and holly leaves on the yellow box in Soft Garden. I fussy cut the Holiday Trio image and set it aside.

TT1223 2 WM

To create the background I heat embossed the Christmas Sweater set on a cream shimmer cardstock in a white pearl embossing powder. I ink blended the bottom of the panel in Peach Blossom and Everglade Moss and cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle die. I added a strip of gold glitter paper on the panel and foam mounted it on a cream cardbase. I then adhered the gift boxes on it using some foam adhesives.

The sentiment from Holiday Trio stamp set was gold heat embossed on a strip of white cardstock. I stamped the small poinsettias from Folk Art Christmas Tree set in Peach Blossom and the holly leaves in Everglade Moss and Soft Garden on a piece of white cardstock, fussy cut them all and added them to the center of the bows. I finished off the card with small red hearts from Sugar Cookie Couture Mix which I added to the small images on the bows, and some Medallion Gold sequins.

Merry Christmas

Hi peep. How’s it going? Vera here today. 5 day till Christmas. It’s not too late to send Christmas cards out, is it? Yep, I am still scrambling and to be honest, I don’t think I will really catch up and send enough cards to all the people I plan to send cards to.

What can I say, I can be quite a procrastinator. Hah!

Anyway, since I am still needing Christmas card, I decided to play with an older set Coming Up Poinsettias.

IMG2982.2
To start, I masked the edges of the card and inked it up with various ink color.

IMG2982.1
Then, I stamped and heat embossed the poinsettias with gold embossing powder. Once that done, I colored it with Copic and die cut it. Adhere the flower to the card base with foam adhesive. Trim the part that stick out over the card. Stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock and adhere with foam adhesive as well.  I just love using them. 🙂

I almost leave the card the way it is, but then I decided I should add a little chickadee from Nesting Peonies set to my card. Finished by covering the image with shimmering markers and added some mixed size dew drops.
IMG2982.3

I hope you can see the pretty shimmer on the card. Yay for one more card to send out. How about you? Are you sending out Christmas cards this year? Handmade, store bought or just family photo card?

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I know it’s still 5 days away, but I am wishing you all a wonderful and joyous Christmas. And, may we remember the true meaning of Christmas and be kinder to one another, not just during the season but all year long. Cheers….

Transformation Hummingbird in two ways

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring Transformation Hummingbird stamp set. I tried to make two cards in the same layout and colors. I used two coloring mediums to see how different they look.

On the first card I colored the Transformation Hummingbird using alcohol ink. Some of you asked me to make a video tutorial of alcohol ink coloring. I’ll try to make a video next year 🙂 . I’ve once posted here a coloring process video using alcohol ink. If you want to watch it, click here!

TT1218 1 WM

I heat embossed the hummingbird in Rose Gold embossing powder on an alcohol ink cardstock. Then I colored it by dropping the alcohol ink and tilting the paper. For small areas I used a micro applicator. The colors I used are: Purple Twilight, Turquoise, Limeade for the hummingbird , Shell Pink, Amethyst for the morning glory flowers, Aqua, Turquoise, Limeade for the leaves.

TT1218 4 WM

In the background I colored only the bottom part using Purple Twilight and Silver Mixative. I used lots of rubbing alcohol to blend  and brighten the colors. After the coloring was done I cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle die.

I adhered Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy fine Silver on the four sides of a gray cardstock and foam mounted the colored panel on it. The sentiment was cut from Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy fine Silver and three more times from white cardstock. I stacked them together and added it to the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

TT1218 2 WM

The second hummingbird was watercolored.

TT1218 2 1 wM

I stamped the Transformation Hummingbird on a watercolor paper in Noir and clear heat embossed the image. I colored the hummingbird and morning glory flowers using Color Burst powder. The coral morning glories were colored in Duochrome Hibiscus watercolor. I colored the background in purple and silver and let the panel dry.

Tt1218 2 5 WM

I cut the panel slightly tilted using a Double Stitched Rectangle die . I ink blended Iris Blooms on the outer frame. The center piece was glued flat on a white cardbase and the frame was foam mounted.  The die cut sentiment was created in the same way like the first card. The finishing touch for this card was some clear dew drops.

TT1218 2 2 wM

It was so much fun to color this gorgeous hummingbird with different mediums. I hope you’ll give this a try 🙂 !

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards 🙂 !

Have a wonderful day!

Birthday card in winter colors

Hello, everyone! It’ s Anna here and today I have a winter birthday card to share with you.

SONY DSC

I started by cutting out a flower cluster and words from white cardstock using Coming Up Morning Glories SVG Coordinating Cut File. Then, I stamped main image from Coming Up Morning Gloriesand heat embossed it in white. I colored flowers and leaves with Holbein watercolors.

Next, I made sentiment. “HAPPY” was embossed in Glitter Gold. “Birthday” was stamped in Iris Blooms.

SONY DSC

To create the background, I ink blended Iris Blooms onto A2 sized white cardstock panel, stamped Basic Stripes Cling Background and heat embossed it in white.

I adhered all images on the card panel and added a few sequins from Summer Skies Couture Mix to add a little sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great Monday, friends!

IMG_7391

I stamped the birds on beige cardstock using Light Onyx, Smoky Quartz and Warm Hazelnut Dyes. Then I cut it.

I stamped the branch from Holly Branch and colored it with watercolor pencils.

IMG_7392

I stamped the branch from Winter Chickadee set  with Found Topaz, Warm Hazelnut, Valentine Red and Lipstick red Dyes. Then I toned the background with Warm Hazelnut Dye and stamped the title using Noir Dye.

Alcohol Ink Coloring – Sweet Bouquet

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card featuring Sweet Bouquet stamp set. As you may know, I love coloring flowers.  The beautiful floral stamps by The Ton are super to color, as they have oft large flower images in the cluster.

For today’s post I colored the floral cluster from Sweet Bouquet stamp set using alcohol ink.

TT1211 1 WM

I stamped the image on an alcohol ink cardstock panel in a light ink to created the background. The stamped image worked as a guide for me while I added alcohol inks on the panel. First I sprayed lots of rubbing alcohol on the panel and dropped Shell Pink and Aqua alcohol ink on it and blended them by blowing using a marker spritzer tool. I repeated the process till I was happy with the result.

TT1211 2 WM

After the background was dry I gold heat embossed the Sweet Bouquet on it. I then colored the image by dropping the ink and moving the panel. Small areas were colored using a micro applicator. I used Amethyst, Purple Twilight, Flamingo and Shell pink for the large flowers. Amethyst, Turquoise for the small flowers and Citrus and Limeade to color the leaves. After the colored panel was completely dry, I splattered lots of Gold Mixative on the whole panel and let it dry.

TT1211 4 WM

I cut the colored panel with a Double Stitched Rectangle die.  I chose a navy cardbase and foam mounted the colored panel slightly tilted on it and cut off the excessive parts over the sides. The sentiment was cut using Hello word die four times from the same navy cardstock I used for the cardbase. I gold heat embossed one of the word die cuts partially and stacked all four die cuts together.  I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT1211 3 WM

Hope I could brighten your day a bit with my spring-y card 🙂 ! I love the vibrant colors of the alcohol ink!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Wishing you a crafty day!

Hugs,

TaeEun

Rainbow Transformation

Happy Monday!! I have a cheerful, rainbow card to brighten up those Monday blues!!

I absolutely LOVE the Transformation stamp!! I recently received the Transformation Die set and couldn’t wait to use it!!

Rainbow-Transformation-1

I began by stamping the butterfly image with Caviar Ink and colored it in rainbow colors with Copic markers, then die-cut it out. I chose some Couture Inks in matching colors to stamp my background with the Mini Dots Cling Background Stamp. I chose Lipstick Red, Coralline, Beach Blondie, Soft Garden, Cali Blue & Iris Blooms; applied them to the stamp with sponge daubers and stamped it diagonally across a panel of white cardstock.

Rainbow-Transformation-2

I white heat embossed two sentiments, also from Transformation, onto black cardstock strips. I added the die-cut butterfly and sentiment strips with foam adhesive. A few Glass Slippers Sequins was the perfect finishing touch!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful week!!!
