Soft Floral Cards

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with two soft floral cards.

For the first card I combined Watercolor Wreaths and Peony Terrace Cling background stamp as they have the same watercolor look. For my second card I created a clean and dreamy composition of florals and greenery using City Girls Book Life, Wild Peonies and Mini Wild Florals stamp sets.

Let’s take a look at my cards :)!

To create my first card I started by die cutting the floral wreath from Watercolor Wreath from a Bristol Smooth paper panel using coordinating die. I then taped the negative panel together to heat emboss the Peony Terrace on it in some white pearl embossing powder. I then stamped the floral wreath from Watercolor Wreath using Aquamarkers on the positive die cut. I colored the flowers on the stamp in pink or yellow and the leaves in green and stamped it. I then added details using Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment in Noir is from Penned Sentiments set which was stamped on a silver heat embossed banner from Basic Banners. I die cut the banner using coordinating die. To assemble my card I foam mounted the negative panel on a gray cardbase and placed the wreath, first a fun foam die cut and then the colored die cut. The fun foam is thicker than my foam adhesive, so that the wreath is popped up slightly over the front panel. I then adhered the banner. To finish off I went over the flowers with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker and added a few Glass Slippers Round Confetti around the wreath.

You can see the shimmer on the Peony Terrace background and the glitter on the wreath better in close up picture below.

My second card was made, inspired by the sentiment from Sunnies set. “You wake up fabulous.” Hope you can see what I wanted to represent 🙂 .

To start off I stamped small greenery stamps from Wild Peonies and Mini Wild Florals stamp sets on a A2 sized white cardstock. The colors I used are Caribbean Turquoise, Bright Emerald, Cobalt Breeze and Ocean Teal.. I then stamped the lady from Born Classy in Caviar Hybrid ink on that panel and die cut it using coordinating die. I colored her with Copic markers. I added Ocean Teal on the bottom edge of the front panel by blending. I stamped the flower bouquet from City Girls Book Life set on a separate white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers as well and die cut it with coordinating die.  I then cut the part with two hands out and glued the bouquet on the hair of the lady. The sentiment from Sunnies was gold heat embossed on a strip of vellum. I adhered both ends of the vellum strip on the back of the front panel and mounted the panel flat on a white cardbase. The lady was foam mounted onto her place on the front panel. A coat of glitter was added on the flower bouquet and on the dress using Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker. To finish off I added some sequins from Smoked Emerald Sparkling Clear Sequins mix.

So Suzy Stamps & The Ton Collaboration Hop Day 3

Hello and welcome back to the final day of our fabulous Collaboration Hop with So Suzy Stamps! I enjoyed this collab so much that I made two cards for today!

suzy-day-3

For my first card, I made a fun scene card using our City Girls: Retail Therapy and Department Store stamps and Suzy’s Street Lamp and Herb 1 stamps.

I started off by stamping the background Dept. Store stamp in our Noir Dye ink on an A2 sized card panel.  I set that aside and stamped the elements for my scene from our Retail Therapy set. After I stamped all the ladies, pup, cab and accessories, I colored them in with zig markers and die cut them using their coordinating dies.  Then I watered down some of my zig markers to color in the Dept. Store background. I chose a more muted background because I didn’t want to take away from the hustle and bustle of the scene.

Zig markers used (available individually here): No 51 Lemon Yellow, No 50 Yellow, No 91 Light Gray, No 36 Light Blue, Black Zig Marker, No 20 Red, No 24 Wine Red, No 62 Dark Brown, No 71 Flesh, No 72 Beige, No 64 Oatmeal, No 92 Blue Gray, No 37 Cornflower Blue, No 42 Turquoise Green, No 202 Peach Pink, No 81 Light Violet, No 70 Orange, No 45 Pale Green, No 83 Lilac

Next I gold glitter heat embossed the lamp on a separate card panel and used my Scan N Cut to cut out the lamp.  Before I put the scene together, I gold glitter heat embossed the gorgeous leafy Herb 1 stamp on the top portion of my Dept. Store panel.  I LOVE the effect it has on the scene!  The falling foliage gave it more depth and life to the project.

Next I adhered the Dept. Store panel onto a side folding A2 card base and then assembled my scene by popping up all the elements (except the cab) with some dimensional foam tape. Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder on black cardstock and adhered it onto my card.

My next card is more simple but just as fun!  I used the same City Girls: Retail Therapy set and paired it with Suzy’s festive scripty Celebrate sentiment.  Our Retail Therapy set might be one of my favorites from the last release.  The image with the girl holding all of the boxes and bags is so comical and I know some of you guys can relate!

I started off by stamping the gal with the boxes in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I took the same stamp and stamped only the boxes along the bottom edge of my card panel so that it looked like she was surround by boxes and boxes of fabulous shopping finds.  After I stamped the box piles, I stamped the shopping bags and the adorable pup.

Next I stamped the Celebrate stamp next to our gal.  This Celebrate stamp is something that I will be keeping on my desk as a go to. For the You Deserve It portion of the sentiment, I simply curved the end of it on my acrylic block so that it would curve alongside the end curve of the Celebrate sentiment.  I chose not to color the panel as I enjoyed the monochrome look to the card. To finish the card, I adhered some of our new Silver Holographic sequins.

Thank you all so much for stopping by Day 3 of So Suzy and The Ton’s Collaboration Hop! I really enjoyed creating with So Suzy’s stamps! Her images are beautiful and work well as collaborative stamps as well as standalone stamps.

Treat Yourself

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with two cards saying “Treat Yo Self”.

I used two chic and classy stamp sets from our new Release: City Girls (Retail Therapy) and Born Classy and their coordinating dies. I know many of you fell in love with this unique sets like me :)!

On the first card I’ve created a night city scene with three ladies enjoying their free time shopping and sightseeing. I started off by making the night sky with city light. I blended Lemon Drop, Coralline hybrid, Parisian Blue, Iris Blooms and Noir Couture colors, after I masked one third of the A2 watercolor panel. Some splatters using silver watercolor were added and some dots using gel pens. I then stamped the skyline of the city from the Vogue Skies stamp set in Noir dye ink and then once more in embossing ink to clear heat emboss it. For the walkway I stamped the bottom part of the Scenes: Dept. Store cling background stamp in Crystal Pewter. I watercolored the walkway in silver to give it some shimmer and added thin silver glitter tape underneath the buildings. I mounted the front panel on the card base using some foam adhesive.

The ladies, the little dog and the bags from the City Girls (Retail Therapy) stamp set were stamped using our copic-friendly Caviar hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers and cut using Coordinating dies. I glued two ladies and the little dog flat on the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, which I silver heat embossed on some purple cardstock and cut into a banner. The sentiment was foam mounted on the card with a lady.

To make my second card I started out by stamping the flowers and greenery from Mini Wild Florals stamp set along the diagonal of the front panel. I used Soft Garnet, Orchid Crush and Rose Quartz for the flowers, Soft Garden, Bright Ememrald and Crystal Pewter for the greenery. I then added tiny flowers from Floral World stamp set in Iris Blooms as filler. I die cut the lady from the Born Classy stamp set using coordinating die out of the front panel and then stamped the lady in Orchid Crush on the die cut. I colored her skin and hair using Copic markers. To assemble the card I adhered thin strip of purple cardstock on both sides of my card base, the front panel flat on it and then foam mounted the lady in place. After I added shimmer on her hair and dress using Wink of Stella,I glued the silver heat embossed vellum part on the dress. The sentiments are from City Girls (Retail Therapy). To finish off I scattered some sequins from the Glass Slippers sequins mix.

I have one more picture to share with you. This is the second card before I added the vellum part. I was having a hard time deciding with or without…, till my  4 year old girl insisted on the version with the vellum layer :). I can’t say which one is more appealing to me. I actually like both of them. What do you think?
