Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards I made using our new digital cut files. And also I used the beautiful Abstract Peonies set from May Release for the first card.
Effie has designed beautiful layering floral cut files, cut files for stencils, coverplate cut files along with some very unique designs like Crashing Wave Layering Coverplate cut files. You can find them all in the digital category of The Ton shop. Stop by and take a look, if you haven’t done it yet. You don’t want to miss them out!
For my first card I used Garden Foliage coverplate as the backdrop for the floral cluster created using Abstract Peonies.
I started off by stamping the peony flowers and leaves from Abstract Peonies set. I used Vanilla Frosted cupcake, Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine for the yellow flower and Peach Blossom, Coralline Hybrid and Coral Cavern for the coral one. The layers of the leaves were stamped in Bright Emerald and Hot Turmaline. I then added the outlines and stamens of the flowers in Noir. I fussy cut all the images and set them aside.
Next I cut the Garden Foliage coverplate from a heavyweight white cardstock panel with my Cricut. I then started making the background with a watercolor wash. In order to match with the colors I used for the florals, I chose sap green, naples yellow, cerulean blue and chartreuse Color Burst for the background. I first scattered the pigment powder on a watercolor paper panel and sprayed clear water. I repeated the process until I have a result I was happy with.
After the background panel was completely dry I adhered it on a white cardbase, added the Garden Foliage piece onto it and arranged the peony cluster as shown in the picture. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Florals set on a strip of black cardstock and added it to the card. I finished off the card with some Smoked Emerald and Glass Slippers sequins.
The next card is showcasing Anemone Bunch Coverplate SVG cut file.
Actually this card design has started with a mistake. The first cut was failed as I chose a wrong pressure of the blade so that the image wasn’t cut through. I used the failed one as the base. I could color the image as I had the outlines traced with the blade 🙂 ! I used Copic markers to color the flowers and leaves. I then blended Lemon Drop, Soft Garden and Soft Garnet in the background.
After splattering opaque white ink on the whole panel I let it dry. I cut Anemone Bunch Coverplate once again from a heavyweight white cardstock this time with the right pressure. I mounted the colored panel on a white cardbase and adhered the Anemone Bunch Coverplate on it.
The sentiment was also cut using a digital cut file. It is one of the sentiments included in Mod Scripty Sentiments SVG cut file. I cut it three times from some white cardstock, stacked them together and added it onto the card. I then colored a strip of white cardstock using orange and yellow Copic markers and white heat embossed the sentiment from Brushed You set on it. I cut it in a banner and glued it below “you”. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti.
That’s it for today!
Thank you so much for looking! Hope I was able to give you some inspiration for a crafty day!
