Happy New Year’s Eve

Hello everyone!!! Hope you’re enjoying the last day of the year of 2018 with your family and friends! It’s TaeEun here today with a New Year’s card and the last floral card of this year 🙂 .

I’ve made a tunnel card decorated with beautiful floral border from Certificate of Awesomeness stamp set.

TT1231 7 WM new

I started by making three panels. First I blended Cobalt Breeze and Blue Diamond on the first panel and Grape Crush and Cobalt Breeze on the second panel. I applied the colors on about two thirds of the upper part of the two panels. To apply the colors on the base panel I masked the border using masking tape and blended Italian Denim, Grape Crush and Plum Wine. I splattered white opaque ink on all of the panels and let them dry.

The first two panels were cut using Double Stitched Rectangle dies making a window while the window of the second panel is smaller than the one of the first panel.

I gold heat embossed the floral border image and small floral cluster from Certificate of Awesomeness set two times. I colored the images using Zig brush markers and a clear glitter pen and cut them with coordinating dies.

The happy die cut was cut with Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from some white cardstock, which was adhered on the first panel. I stamped Happy New Year sentiment from Banner Holiday Add On set in Cobalt Breeze.

I arranged the floral clusters and foam mounted them on every panel as shown in the picture.

Now I started assembling the card into a tunnel card. I cut two thin strips of light weight cardstock and folded them in accordion shape. I attached the sides of each panel to the accordion strips to connect them together.

I finished off the card by adding some clear Dew Drops.

As I love coloring floral images, I have one more card featuring Amazing Gardenia to share with you. I watercolored the big gorgeous gardenia image a while back. And Now I’m glad I could turn it into a card before the year ends 🙂 .

TT1231 2 3 WM

I did some no-line coloring on Amazing Gardenia and cut it using the coordinating die. I then blended Peach blossom and Crystal Pewter dye ink on a white cardstock. After the panel was dry I heat embossed our new Modern Plaid background stamp in Rose Gold Embossing powder on it. I love this background stamp! It gives every background panel a unique look!

TT1231 2 CU3 WM-

I cut the background panel using two Double Stitched Rectangle dies to make the frame. The frame was then foam mounted on a gray cardbase and the center panel was adhered flat. I then added the gardenia and the gray sentiment strip. The sentiment is from Most Interesting Cardmaker set.

I finished off the card by scattering some sequins from Cinderella’s Ride and Deck the Halls Couture Mix.

 

Thank you so much everyone for your love and support throughout this year!

Wishing you all a happy and crafty New Year !!!

Shimmery Rainbow Hello

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here. As promised, I m back with another fun project to share with you on this fine Monday.

The moment I saw the Geo Mountain Coverplates, I was like I must have this collection! Granted, my arm got quite an exercise running the dies (I know, I know I still have the old school Cuttlebug, haven’t upgrade to the fancy machine, yet), but oh it’s so worth it!

Here’s the proof. 🙂

For this card I used the Geo Mountain Coverplate B. I could layer the pieces with the other plates, but after seeing this, I decided to keep the layer simple and stick to just this 1 layer. Next, I work on watercoloring the background. Once it dry, I adhere the die cut piece to the watercolor background & adhere them to the card base.

For the sentiment part, I combined a couple of the adhesive glitter paper with the hello from Bold General Greeting Word dies set. Adhere to the center of the card.

Then, I reached for an oldie but a goodies sets, the Mini Wild Floral set & dies and Pragmatic Wreath set & dies). I inked the leaves with Blue Diamond and the flower with Peach Blossom. Added some shadow to the images with Copic and then arrange them on the card & voila…. a shimmery hello card that I sure hope will delight anyone who receive it.

Well peeps, I hope you have a gorgeous Memorial Day and let us remember the reason for this day, to honor all who serves in the military. To those who serve, thank you to you & your family for all that you do, for your sacrifices, your bravery. Have a blessed Memorial Day everyone.

Adding Accents Using Transparent Adhesive Glitter Paper

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of cards featuring new products from March 2018 Flash Release : Heart Jigsaw Die (Stitched) and Daisy Close Up (3/4 view) Cling stamp. I also added glittery accents on my cards using Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter paper.  This glitter paper with sticky back is transparent and super sparkly! Using this you can turn any paper into a glitter paper!!!

For my first card I cut a white cardstock on which I adhered Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter paper using stitched version of Heart Jigsaw Die.

TT0326 1 2 WM

The stitched version of Heart Jigsaw Die cut only a piece of jigsaw puzzle while other pieces being stitched. The die cut also has a thin heart outline around the jigsaw. I did a watercolor wash in pink and silver and add splatters on some watercolor paper to create the background. I trimmed the panel slightly down and dry embossed it using Double Stitched Rectangle die to add some texture.

TT0326 1 CU1 WM

The sentiment is from Perfect Fit sentiments set. I stamped it in Noir on the background panel. I then started assembling the card by foam mounting the background panel on a pink cardbase. I adhered the heart outline on the panel and foam mounted the heart jigsaw and the small puzzle piece. The sparkle of the Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter paper is so pretty!!!

TT0326 1 CU2 WM

For my second card I watercolored Daisy Close Up (3/4 view).

TT0326 2 1 WM

To start off I stamped the image on a watercolor paper in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and watercolored it. After done coloring I cut three small circles using a small circle die from Bokeh Burst Round coordinating dies and hello using Bold General Greetings Word plate die from the colored panel. I then adhered Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter paper on die cut elements and cut them again using the same dies. I cut green foam as well to raise the circles and the sentiment.

TT0326 2 CU2 WM

The colored panel was added flat on the cardbase and then the raised circles and sentiment were placed back onto the card. At that point I thought something is missing and decided to add a butterfly 🙂 !  I gold heat embossed a butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies 1, colored it using Spectrum Noir glitter pens, cut it using coordinating die and foam mounted the butterfly onto the card!

TT0326 2 CU1 WM

That’s it from me for today. If you want to see more about the Glossy FineTransparent Adhesive Glitter Paper, I’ve shared this card in January which is showing how to create multi-colored glittery background using Glossy FineTransparent Adhesive Glitter Paper.

Daisy Trio

Hello there! Hope your week is off to a great start!  It’s TaeEun here today with three cards featuring Coming Up Daisies and Daisy Duet set from our third anniversary release.

On my first card I inlaid die cut Coming Up Daisies into a dreamy coral – aqua panel.

TT0129 1 1 WM

To start off I created the background panel by blending Soft Garnet, Cali Blue and Cobalt Breeze on a A2 sized white cardstock. I then adhered Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Transparent on it. I love this paper. As it is transparent you can create your own glitter papers! The Coming Up Daisies image was white heat embossed on some Bristol smooth paper and colored using Zig markers. I cut it with the coordinating die. After I decided how it should be placed, I cut out the image shape from the background panel to inlay the floral image. I die cut hello word using Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from the background panel. I cut the hello sentiment again from a pink fun foam to raise the die cut sentiment from the background panel. I then assembled the card on a white cardbase. To finish off I added a few Clear Dew Drops.

TT0129 1 CU1 WM

On the second card I did some no-line watercoloring.

TT0129 2 2 WM

I stamped Daisy Duet on a watercolor paper panel in a light ink and added one more daisy after masking the first stamped image. I then watercolored the flowers and the background. The sentiment is from Peony Notes set. Lovely was heat embossed in Rose Gold and the small sentiments were stamped in Crystal Pewter. I cut the panel using Double Stitched Rectangle die and glued it on a gray cardbase.  Finishing touch was some sequins from Pink Bokeh Couture Mix.

TT0129 2 CU3 WM

On the next card I experimented with a coloring medium which I don’t use that often: Acrylic paint :).

TT0129 3 3 WM

I started off the card by stamping Daisy Duet on a Mixed media paper panel in Crystal Pewter and coloring it with acrylic paints. I die cut the upper part of the image using coordinating die. I then prepared a pink cardbase. I blended Hampton White pigment ink on the front of the cardbase and added some bokeh using circle stencil.

TT0129 3 CU6 WM

I adhered the daisies flat on the cardbase. I cut happy using Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from a white cardstock on which I adhered Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Transparent and foam mounted it onto the card. I borrowed “Birthday” from Peony Notes set and stamped it in Smoky Quartz. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers round confetti sequins.
