Hello crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start!
It’s TaeEun here today with a fiery floral card featuring Coming Up Peonies. I colored this beautiful peony cluster from Coming Up Peonies set using Copic markers. I tried a new color combination.
I started off by stamping the image in Copic friendly Caviar hybrid ink. The peonies were colored in R30, R32, R37 and R89 which create beautiful coral shade. The leaves and stems were colored using V91, V93, V95 and V99. These V colors are very similar to warm gray colors with a touch of violet.
After coloring was done I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.
I wanted a dark background. At first I tried a black panel but changed my mind and blended a coral to black ombre on a white panel. I used Coral Cavern, Peach Blossom, Grape Crush , Smoky Quartz, Light Onyx and Noir. I let the panel completely dry and stamped the Modern Plaid background stamp in an embossing ink on it. I then applied Mandarin Perfect Pearls powder on it using a dry paint brush. The powder sticks on the embossing ink and creates a subtle shiny pattern. I added water to the same powder and splattered it onto the panel. I also splattered white opaque ink.
For my 1st card, I adhere the washi tape to a piece of soft green cardstock. The beauty of washi tape, you can change its look by the base color you used. Then I die cut the wishes sentiment on the panel using Bold General Greeting Word Plate dies. Then, die cut the sweet sentiment fromSweetheart World Plate diesset. Adhere panel to the crd base.
Die cut the wishes sentiment 3 more times from white cardstock to layer the sentiment to make it stand out from the rest of the panel. Die cut sweet sentiment again from gold foil cardstock and adhere to the card. Finish by stamping, heat embossed & die cut a butterfly using Beautiful Butterflies 1 set (adhere it with foam adhesive).
Now, on to the 2nd card. I was inspired by Effie’s card during the release (you can see the post HERE)
I adhere the washi tape to a piece of cardstockand then fussy cut it. Before adhering it to the card base, I blended some Rose Quartz ink to the card base. Then I partially ink up the Mini Hearts Cling Background stamp and stamped the corner of the card for a bit of accent. Adhere the cut out, stamp the sentiment from Dearest Peony set and finished by adding some Rose Champagne Sparkle sequins mix.
Well peeps, that’s all from me today. It’s been a pretty crazy hectic week for me, so I sure am looking forward to a quiet weekend to just chill with the doggies. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Have a fabulous weekend everyone! Cheerrrssss……
I started off by stamping beautiful flowers and leaves onto a watercolor paper with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them in white. Then, I colored all images using Holbein watercolors and cut them out with Today’s Cosmos Coordinating Dies.
My next card is showcasing the Wildflowers washi tape which was released yesterday.
At first, I adhered the Wildflowers washi tape on a piece of white cardstock and fussy cut the floral images. Then, I mounted the clusters on the top and on the bottom of the White Natural card base (Neenah). Next, I trimmed the excess.
Hello and welcome back to The Season, everyone! We have a special product release today – WASHI TAPE! It’s a small release but it’s near and dear to my heart because these tapes are custom designs based on my very own floral watercoloring. If you check out my personal crafty Instagram profile (@craftyeffie), you can see the the paintings that these products were inspired from. Both rolls are available to ship immediately!
Our Pink Peonies washi tape is the larger of the two rolls being released today. The design of this roll consists of soft pink peony clusters with gray and rose gold foil leaves. This roll measures approximately 4.5 inches x 10 meters. You can use this tape as a beautiful background or fussy cut the elements to create your own custom arrangement.
Our Wildflowers Washi tape is smaller and consists of brighter colors. This roll has rose gold leaf accents that are perfect for fussy cutting to add to your floral clusters. This roll measures approximately 3.5 inches x 10 meters.
Now that you’ve seen the product, here is the list of fabulous participants for our washi tape release hop!
Be sure to scroll all the way down for our special announcement, promotions and giveaway details.
Both of my projects for today are very similar in technique! I applied my washi tape onto cardstock and fussy cut the different floral clusters to make my own custom arrangements.
I even used the edge pieces for my project. For these cutoff images, I tucked them behind my clusters to create an even fuller floral arrangement. Waste not, want not!
For my first card, I used our Pink Peonies washi tape. I started by blending some of our Rose Quartz dye ink onto white cardstock. Then I used the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large) die collection to add stitching to the edges of my A2 panel. Next, I splattered white and metallic gold acrylic paint onto my blended panel. Lastly, I arranged my floral clusters and foliage and added some Clear Rhinestones.
For my second card, I stamped our Bare Tones background stamp onto white cardstock to create a subtle background patterned panel. Then I popped up my Wildflowers clusters. For my sentiment, I used our Love and Hugs word die cuts cut from white cardstock. Lastly, I embellished my card with some Glass Slippers sequins.
Announcement + Promotion
Going forward, we will no longer release coordinating dies with our designs. We will also be discontinuing all of our existing coordinating dies and some of our standalone dies (Petal Cut Peonies, Modern Labels, Best Day Coverplate, Lattice Coverplate). So once these products are out of stock, we have no plans of bringing them back in the future. There may be an instance where we find one or two extra sets after we’ve fullfilled all of our orders. In this situation we will temporarily restock that die to clear the rest of our inventory.
This was a very difficult decision to make but once it was done, I felt more positive about The Ton’s future. For us, this is the best solution to adapt to this evolving craft industry.
So since I would like to clear out our coordinating die inventory as quickly as possible, I’m extending our 30% promo once again until this Friday, March 8 at 11:30pm EST. *Restrictions apply* Please note that once these coordinating dies are gone, they are gone.
SHIPPING UPDATE: We have received a large influx of orders due to this promotion. It is a team of two (my mother and I) that is packing and shipping everything. It is taking a little longer for us to fulfill these orders but we are hoping to ship everything out by the end of this week.

Thank you all for stopping by The Season today! I know there’s a lot of information in this post so thank you for making it this far. Your next stop on this hop is the talented Olga!
Hello friends!! Brenda, here with you today!! I think everyone is craving spring and warmer temperatures. We are expecting snow in the Midwest again and highs in the 20 degree range at the beginning of next week. Ugh!! I am so over it!! In the meantime, it is definitely spring in my craft room!! Hopefully these projects brighten your day!!
I started by stamping the beautiful border with Versamark Ink onto a white cardstock and heat embossed it in Rose Gold. I colored it using Holbein watercolors.
Next, I stamped Bare Tones onto a piece of white cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in Rose Gold as well. I cut out “BEAUTIFUL” from it with Sweetheart Word Plate Dies. “You’re” was cut out from grey cardstock using die from the same die collection.
It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of encouragement cards made using Power Pumps and Hustle and Grind Sentiments stamp sets. These two stamp sets go so well together with their vigorous and bold characteristic.
On my first card I used the GORGEOUS Peony Close Up stamp as a backdrop for the pretty red high heel from Power Pumps stamp set.
To create the background I watercolored the white heat embossed peony of Peony Close Up on some watercolor paper. I used Peony and Wisteria Color Burst powders. I applied lots of water on the panel and colored petal by petal. I added the vibrant color on the inner end of the petals while leaving the outer end of petals quite bright.
The background panel was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle die and foam mounted on a white cardbase. The sentiment from Hustle and Grind Sentiments set was heat embossed in black on a torn strip of vellum and added to the panel before I adhered it on the cardbase. I then added the high heel using some foam adhesives and embellished the card with some Glass Slippers sequins and Santa’s Sneezes Couture Mix to finish it off.
For my second high heel I made an alcohol inked panel.
To make the background I used several alcohol inks in red shade. I applied Blending solution first on a glossy cardstock panel and dripped the alcohol ink colors. I blew the ink to blend them, splattered gold mixative on it and let it a bit dry. Before the panel was completely dry I pressed a gold foil on it with the help of a brayer. The foil sticks on the area where the ink is still wet leaving beautiful golden accents.
