Poinsettias – New Grouped Layering Stamps

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! 

It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of holiday cards featuring some of the new grouped Layering stamp sets from the latest release; Dashing Poinsettias, Pleasing Poinsettias, Holly Bits and Boundless Poinsettias

For the first card I used the solo poinsettias and leaves from Dashing Poinsettias and Pleasing Poinsettias set along with the Holly Bits to make the festive clusters. 
The Dashing Poinsettias has three solo poinsettias in different sizes and the Pleasing Poinsettias has three poinsettias in different angles in the similar size. 

I stamped the poinsettias in pink, purple and red and the leaves in cool gray. The colors I used are listed below.

I cut them all using the coordinating dies and set them aside.

I ink blended the upper right part of a white cardbase lightly in Iris Blooms and splattered purple and white watercolor on it. 

I cut the Mini Sprigs from some white cardstock and arranged them on the base of my poinsettia clusters. The poinsettias, leaves and Holly Bits were adhered using foam tape. 

The white heat embossed sentiment is from Confetti Shapes Circle set.  To match with the leaves I ink blended the sentiment strip in Soft Ash and Periwinkle

I finished off the card with a few Glass Slippers sequins

The second card is showcasing the Boundless Poinsettias grouped layering stamp set. 

I wanted the poinsettias to be two toned- pink and yellow (orange). So I stamped each layer with two inks.

The first layer of the poinsettias were stamped in Bubblegum and Amber Citrine,  the second layer in Dolled Up and Coralline Hybrid, the third layer were stamped in Deep Peony. The leaves were stamped in Meadow and Spring Salad.

I then colored the image with Polychromos colored pencils to add more detail. 

To create the background I ink blended a white panel in Peach Blossom and Bubblegum and cut it with the Festive Folk Coverplate die

The background panel was mounted flat on a white cardbase and the Boundless Poinsettias with foam tape on it. I splattered white ink on the card and let it dry. 

The sentiment from Ribbons Holiday set was partially gold heat embossed and stamped in Basil Mojito. I cut the sentiment with the coordinating die and added it to the card. I finished off this card with some sequins from Raspberry Sparkle Couture Mix

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed looking my card 🙂 !

Have a wonderful day!

Fun Fall cards

Hello, everyone! Today Anna here with a couple of fall cards.

The first card is showcasing Majestic Monarchs stamps and dies.

I started by stamping butterfly images on a piece of white cardstock in Caviar, colored them all with Copic markers and die cut them using Majestic Monarchs Coordinating die. I assembled the pop up mechanism together by following Effie’s instructions in her tutorial video.

For the card front, first I created a green panel. I ink blended Matcha and Vineyard on a piece of white cardstock, stamped Fig Leaves Cling Background in Warm Hazelnut on it and cut it out with Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Dies. Then, I stamped Fig Leaves Cling Background on a card base in Vineyard (and inside as well) and adhered green panel on it.

The sentiment from Jumbo Sentiments was stamped in Beach Blondie and Vineyard and cut out with matching die. I added the sentiment and butterflies to the card to finish it up.

The second card is featuring Autumn Coloring Bits and Courtyard Stairs Cling Background.

I stamped autumn images on a white cardstock in Caviar, colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut them all. The vases from Plentiful Planters were stamped in Caviar as well and die cut with coordinating dies. For the background, I stamped Courtyard Stairs Cling Background in Soft Ash, cut it out using Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Dies and foam mounted it on a card base. Then I created a fun autumn scene and adhered all images on the card.

The sentiment from Thankful Gourds was stamped in Coralline.

That’s all from me today! Happy Thursday, friends!

Poinsettia Ornaments

Hi there. Vera here today to start your week with a Christmas inspiration. Just in case you start to work on your Christmas card stash. 🙂

For this card, I started by die-cutting the background. Creating a tone on tone background is one of my favorite way to create a subtle background that wouldn’t compete with the main image. Here, I used the Convention Coverplate die. Adhere the die cut piece to the card base. Next, stamped and heat embossed all three circles from Confetti Shapes Circle set with silver embossing powder and die cut them using Confetti Shapes Circle coordinating dies. Ink blend with various blue ink pads from The Ton collection. I say this, because here, I was too lazy to clean up my brushes before I started the ink blending and I just mix and match the blues anyway. Adhere all circles to card base, die cut the ornament top and add to the ornament. For the line, I just cut a strip of silver pearl paper. Next, I stamped and heat embossed the Poinsettias and berries from Jolly Border set. Colored them with Copic and add to the ornament.

To finish, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from This Year set. Here, I did trim the sentiment as I also want to show you how you can get more out of your stamp. Just by doing a little trimming you can get a whole different sentiment or look from your set. Nifty, right? So, how many Christmas cards do you usually make each year? Do you have to make a lot or just a little?

Well, whether you have to make a bunch or just a little, I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Remember all the new sets can be pre-ordered now and will be shipping on 9/22. Thank you all for stopping by here and I wish you all a good week.

Poinsettia Bouquet

Hi, crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card featuring our new Poinsettia Bouquet stamp set from the Fall 2021 Release! Have you checked out the new release with tons of awesome holiday items? 

For today’s card I picked the gorgeous Poinsettia Bouquet. It’s a huge outline floral image which is a dream to color! 

I white heat embossed the Poinsettia Bouquet on a watercolor paper panel and colored it using Color Burst powder and other watercolors. For the large poinsettia I used Cerulean Blue and Orchid Color Burst. Instead of a detailed coloring I did let the colors flow in the water that I applied first. After the panel was dry I die cut the image using the coordinating die. 

I ink blended the cardbase in Iris Blooms and Cali Blue, as I didn’t like the contrast when I placed the image on the white cardbase. I splattered white ink on the cardbase and foam mounted the Poinsettia Bouquet on it. 

The sentiment from the Ribbons Holiday set was stamped in Violet Fringe and heat embossed in gold, cut with the coordinating die and added to the card using foam tape, after I stamped “HAPPY” also in Violet Fringe. Using the Ribbons Holiday set you get five holiday sentiments with one working process so that you have some of them ready in your stash! 

I scattered Glass Slippers sequins here and there and the card was finished! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed looking my card 🙂 !

Have a wonderful day!

Green & Pinks Poinsettias

Hi all. Happy Labor Day. Vera here today. With Christmas about 4 months away, I started working on my Christmas card stash. The new release from The Ton this month definitely helped me in get going.


For my 1st card, I used the gorgeous Boundless Poinsettias set. Now & then I do love using non traditional color for my Christmas card. That’s what happen with today’s card. Here for the poinsettia I used Matcha, Evergreen & Bright Fern. Then for the leaves I used Crystal Pewter & Smoky Quartz. Once the stamping done, die cut the bouquet using the coordinating Boundless Poinsettias die.

Trim a panel of white cardstock slightly smaller than the green card base and adhere to the base. Add a strip of stripe patterned paper and then adhere the poinsettias using foam adhesive. Then for the sentiment I used Styled Christmas Sentiments which I stamped and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I also adhere this with foam adhesive and finished by adding some Mojito Sparkling Clear Sequins.

Since this past weekend, I was on a roll, I ended up making 2 cards.

For my 2nd card, I used combination of Dashing Poinsettias and Pleasing Poinsettias. For the Dashing Poinsettias I used Whisper Pink, Bubblegum & Dolled Up ink. For the Pleasing Poinsettias I used Bubblegum, Dolled Up & Pink Derby ink. Die cut all the pieces using the coordinating dies.

To put the card together, I trim a panel of white cardstock slightly smaller than the pink cardstock. Then, I die cut a panel of white cardstock with one of the coverplate from Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate die set. I feel like the die cut plaid helped making the background not so plain. Before adhering the Poinsettias I die cut some extra filler using Mini Sprigs Coverplate. Arrange all the pieces and adhere to card. For the sentiment, like before I used Styled Christmas Sentiments set. Finished by adding enamel drops to the center of the Poinsettias.

Well peeps, there you go, 2 Christmas cards that hopefully inspire you to start working on your stack of Christmas cards as well. If you’re in the US, I hope you get to enjoy some time off and get some crafting time in. Have a wonderful day!!

Fall 2021 Release Day 1

Hello and welcome back to our blog! We have a two day release for our new Fall 2021 Release because we have 19 new stamps and dies to show you guys!

Everything will be available for preorder tomorrow and will begin shipping on September 22. I apologize for the delayed shipping but this was the only way I could work around my new schedule as I join the stamp show/expo circuit (we were in Schaumburg for the Stamp and Scrap Expo a couple of weeks ago and in Hamburg this past weekend for the SSAT show). We will be in Westminster in a couple of weeks and then Mesa, AZ the week after. If you’re in the area, you should come visit our booths at these stamp shows/expos!

We will have our Day 2 debuts on the blog at noon EST tomorrow (this is also the final day of our release). Everything will go live at noon EST in the shop for preorder. Thank you for your patience as we try to adjust to our new schedules!

Please note that all the new release links will go live tomorrow at noon!

Without further ado, let’s begin Day 1 of our debuts.

Boundless Poinsettias, 9x12in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating die available separately)

First up is our new Boundless Poinsettias set! This set comprises of three layers for the poinsettia clusters and two layers for the foliage bits totaling five main layers.

Each layer is implemented with our patent pending grouped layering strategic markers to assist in flawless layering. There are three additional individual small stamps that can be used to stamp the poinsettia centers.

The coordinating die will cut out the cluster.

Ribbons Holiday, 6x8in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating die available separately)

Our grouped layering ribbons sentiments were so popular because of the ease of aligning (due to the patent pending grouped layering strategic markers implemented in the design) and easy die cutting using the one single coordinating die to cut all the sentiments at once. Thus, we had to release the holiday version of this fabulous design!

The two step layering stamps will stamp all five sentiments in two easy steps.

The coordinating die will cut out all five sentiments in one single shot.

Obligatory Christmas, 4×6 Photopolymer Stamp Set

I had to create a somewhat sassy sentiment set for this season so here is our Obligatory Christmas set. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

This Year, 2x3in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating die available separately)

If the sassy sentiments aren’t your cup of tea and you need a sentiment that is more on the serious side, I hope our This Year mini stamp can be used for your cards this season. The coordinating die (available separately) will die cut the main sentiment.

Confetti Shapes Circle, 4x6in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating dies available separately)

I think I have a slight obsession with this confetti theme. While it’s not as prevalent as my peony obsession, confetti designs can make any card sparkle. So I had to create our new Confetti Shapes Circle set (and Square and Star versions below).

The coordinating dies are great because you can create little ornament bases and hanging string die cuts to create confetti themed ornaments!

Confetti Shapes Square, 4x6in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating dies available separately)

Our Confetti Shapes Square set can be a beautiful and versatile set. The coordinating dies (available separately) are great as well because the three square dies have stitching inside the cut lines.

There is also one more die which will cut out three bows with stitching that you can add to the top of the confetti square shapes to make them look like presents.

You can add the ornament base die cuts from the Circle set on the Square designs OR you can add the adorable ribbon die cuts from the square die collection.

Confetti Shapes Star, 4x6in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating dies available separately)

Our Confetti Shapes Star set features three sized star designs. There are two holiday themed sentiments as well as one non-holiday sentiment making this set more useful in your stash!

The coordinating dies features three individual star dies and one die that will cut out three ornament bases to use with your stamped star images. There is also one more die that will cut out three ornament strings.

This one single die will cut out 9 small delicate pine sprigs that you can use to fluff up your holiday clusters!

Fancy Folk Tree Layering Coverplate Dies (Two A2 Coverplate Dies and One Tree Die)

Next up is our layering Fancy Folk Tree Coverplate dies! This collection features two layering coverplate dies PLUS a tree shaped die that you can use to back the tree design.

!Here’s a cool closeup of all the wonderful details on these layering dies

This design is very close to my heart because it took a long time to get the alignment of both plates just right. I hope you love these as much as I do!

Poinsettia Mail, 4x6in Photopolymer Stamp Set

Our Poinsettia Mail is a great envelope art stamp that you can use to decorate for your cards that you send out this year!

Time to jazz up those envelopes easily with our new stamp!

Holly Bits, 4x6in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating die available separately)

Next up is our Holly Bits set! This design may look a bit blurry but please note that the actual design will give you a clear impression. We had to edit the graphics a bit to deter design thieves from infringing on our designs.

Our Holly Bits set is a great little 4×6 inch grouped layering set that you can use to create little festive bits to add to your paper crafts. The coordinating die (available separately) will die cut all four images in one shot.

You can turn any floral into a festive holiday floral by adding holly leaves and berries to it!

Dashing Poinsettias, 6x8in Photopolymer Stamp Set (coordinating dies available separately)

Last up is our Dashing Poinsettias set. This is also a grouped layering set that features our patent pending strategic markers.

With this set, you can stamp three poinsettias in three beautiful grouped layers. You can stamp and die cut the grouped leaves separately. I separated the florals from the foliage in this set in case you needed extra leaves!

Now that you’ve seen the stamps for today, enjoy the samples made by our team for Day 1. Be sure to stop by their individual blogs for more details on their projects.

Rose Blossoms Layering Stencil

Hello, crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a floral card featuring Rose Blossoms Layering Stencils. This 6” x 6” stencil set has six layers. I stenciled the image in pink, purple and blue. There is a coordinating die set which cuts the side borders of the stenciled image. 

Let’s take a look at my card 🙂 !

I stenciled the pink roses in Bubblegum and Dolled Up, the purple flowers in Soft Amethyst and Iris Blooms and the small flowers were stenciled in Cali Blue.  For the leaves I used Soft Ash and Periwinkle. I added a bit of purple ink to the leaves. After the stenciling was done I cut the border using the coordinating die. I dry embossed the panel with the first layer of the rose stencil but it’s hard to see in the picture. The dry embossing created a nice smooth texture on the roses.

I chose a purple cardbse for my card and white heat embossed the Modern Plaid background on it. I added a strip of purple glitter tape on the right edge of the cardbase and foam mounted the stenciled image on it. 

The sentiment was stamped using the Ribbons General stamp set in Iris Blooms and Violet Fringe. I cut it using the coordinating die and added it to the card using foam tape. The white heat embossed “Birthday” is also from the Ribbons General set. 

To finish off I added a few clear and purple sequins from Lilac Blossoms Couture Mix

That’s it from me today! Hope you like my purple floral card! The Layering stencils are a great tool to get gorgeous images colored quick and easy in variety of color combos! 

Thank you so much for looking!

Have a great week!

Just Saying Hi

Hi all. Vera here. I have to admit that I often struggling in making fall cards. I guess because I love lots of colors that I often find yellow and orange combo just not as fascinating. Don’t get me wrong, I love those colors in nature, but on card, that’s not my preference. Well, till I learn to let myself go outside the box. Who said fall colors can only be yellow, orange and green right? I think a pop of teal or even pink make fall cards more fun.

For my card today, I used the new Autumn Coloring Bits. All the images are stamped at once, then you just colored them and die cut them all at once. Time saver!! And, then let the fun begin. With just one stamping you end up with enough images to play with. You can use all of them at once or just a few. I used almost all of them on my card.

Before adhering any of them, I ink blend Meadow ink pad on the bottom part of the card. Then start arranging all the pieces. I adhere some directly to the card and some with foam adhesive. I love having different depth of layers on my card.

Once I finished adhering all the pieces, I simply finished by stamping the label sentiment from Regal Rose set. I let the burst of color on the bottom take center stage and keep the rest white space.

I love the way this card turned out. I have found a pop of teal on fall card make fall card prettier. That’s all from me today peeps. Hope you enjoy today’s card. Have a beautiful day! Cheers….

Autumn Cards

Hey friends!! I hope you are all doing well!! I absolutely LOVE the deep, rich colors of fall, but I’m not ready for summer to end yet!! It’s in the 90s all week in the Midwest, so it doesn’t look like it’s coming to an end anytime soon. However, I’m ready for fall in my craft room and cardmaking!!

I have two cards to share with you today!! The first uses the Rose Blossoms Layering Stencils and Coordinating Dies.

I began by ink blending the Rose Blossoms Layering Stencils onto a panel of Bristol cardstock using Peach Blossom, Coralline, Cherry, Wine, Amber Citrine and Matcha inks. I die-cut one side of the panel with the Rose Blossoms Coordinating Dies and adhered it to a panel of deep orange cardstock.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Ribbon General Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Peach Blossom and Coralline inks, then cut the sentiments out with the Coordinating Die. The sub-sentiment was stamped onto a white cardstock strip with Coralline Ink. Both the die-cut “thanks” and strip were popped up with foam adhesive.

My second card features the Autumn Coloring Bits

For this one, I began by stamping the images from the Autumn Coloring Bits Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink. After coloring them with Copics, I cut them out with the Coordinating Die.

For the background, I used the Grid A2 Coverplate Die for die-cut a panel of white cardstock, then adhered it to a white card base. The autumn die-cuts were arranged, glued together and popped up with foam tape.

The sentiment is from the Fall Bouquet Stamp Set. It was stamped onto white cardstock with Noir and Corraline inks, then die-cut with the Coordinating Die and cut into a narrow strip. I also die-cut the thankful die two more times from white cardstock and adhered them behind the stamped one for dimension. The sentiment was adhered with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. Finally, I added a few Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots for a little shine.

That’s it!! How about you? Are you ready for fall or you more of a summer girl like me?

Thanks for dropping by!! Have a wonderful day!!

Brenda
