Pretty Daisies

Hello everyone! Hope your week is going well so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards featuring two of our pretty daisy stamps, Daisy Fields and Daisy Close Up (Full View).

And there is one extra card I’m sharing here today. This additional pink card is featuring one of our Digital cut filesPeony Layering Coverplate SVG Cut File.

Let’s take a look at my pink cards 🙂 !!!

The first one is featuring Daisy Fields set. This set is a background stamp in 5.75″ by 5.75″size. But I used only a part of the image to embellish my card.

I started off by gold heat embossing the Daisy Fields on a vellum panel. I colored the image using Tombow brush markers on the back of the vellum. I then fussy cut a diagonal part of it which includes some full daisies connected with each other.

To create the background I ink blended Soft Garnet on the soft pink cardbase around the area where the flowers would be placed and splattered white opaque ink on it.

After the background was completely dry I stamped the sentiment from Scripty Greetings set in an ombre fashion in Grape Crush and Noir.

I then added the vellum piece with the daisies on it using clear foam tape. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

The second card is showcasing our Daisy Close Up (Full View) and Pop-Up Butterfly Monarch die.

I stamped Daisy Close Up (Full View) on a white cardstock in Soft Garnet to do some no line coloring. I actually thought of colored pencils or Copic markers at first but changed my mind and colored the daisy with acrylic paint. I love the texture of it!

After I finished coloring the pink daisy, I set it aside to dry. I then made the butterfly. To do that I cut the Pop-Up Butterfly Monarch from white cardstock. I cut the wings two times each to stack them together. I heat embossed the butterfly in iridescent sparkle embossing powder. I mounted the panel with the daisy on a white cardbsae and foam mounted the sparkly monarch on it. The sentiment is from The Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0 set. I white heat embossed it on a piece of black cardstock, matted it with some soft pink panel and added it to the card. I finished off the card by scattering some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix like the first card.

Did you see the post where Effie introduced our new digital release? This release includes some gorgeous coverplate cut files. There are some new beautiful designs in the Digital category in our shop which aren’t mentioned in Effie’s post !!! Hope you check it out!!!

I used for next card  Peony Layering Coverplate SVG Cut File.

TT0515 3 1 WM

I cut the three layers of the cut files from Canson Mixed Media paper using my Scan N Cut. I then colored the Layers in Fuchsia, Peony and Wisteria Color Burst respectively.  I colored the center part of the peony a little bit darker to show some depth and the leaves in Turquoise.

Tt0515 3 CU3 WMx

After the colored layers were dry I adhered them together and splattered pink, white and gold ink on it. I then ink blended the cardbase in Hollywood Star and Caribbean Turquoise to give the base layer some color of the flower and leaves. I also splattered gold ink on the cardbase and adhered the layered peony on it. For a more finished look I cut a frame using Double Stitched Rectangle dies from some textured soft pink cardstock and added it to the card.

The sentiment was cut from some Adhesive Foil paper gold and from white cardstock using Love & Hugs word plate dies, stacked together and added to the card. I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

That’s it from my side for today! Hope I was able to give you some inspiration with my cards!

Video: Watercolored Daisy Close Up Hugs

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another video using our gorgeous Daisy (3/4 View) Close Up stamp! For this project, I did some watercoloring with Color Burst watercolor powders.

Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing our daisy image using our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored the petals using Marigold and Lemon Yellow Color Bursts. I used Burnt Orange and Sepia for the center of the daisy. For the leaves, I used Sap Green and Terre Vert. For all of my painting today, I used a wet in wet technique to get some great blending of my oranges and yellows.

I used two Pentel Aqua Brushes (a medium and large tip brush). These watercolor pens have empty chambers where you can just unscrew the brush top to add clean water. I prefer water brushes over traditional paintbrushes when I watercolor because the pens themselves act as a readily available water source. If I need clean water, I can easily squeeze out some water using the brush I have on hand.

After I embossed my daisy onto my watercolor panel, I painted a thin layer of clean water onto my daisy leaves.  Then I added a little bit of Marigold Color Burst to the inner portions (near the center) of my daisy leaves. With my second water brush, I blended the marigold color out towards the edges of my leaves. I made sure to leave a little bit of the edges unpainted to leave some white space to my floral painting.

After I put down my base layer of Marigold, I added a little bit of lemon yellow to the lighter areas of my daisy leaves. I blended some of the lemon yellow out to the edges of the leaves. Next, I added more Marigold powder towards the center of my daisy for shading. I blended the color out just a tiny bit.

Once I painted the leaves, I painted the center of my daisy using Burnt Orange and Sepia. For the leaves, I used Sap Green and Terre Vert. I did not take too much care in painting these two areas (center and leaves) since they’re smaller areas in comparison to the petals.

Next I added gold foil strips to my side folding A2 cardbase and then adhered my painted panel onto the base. Then I die cut my Scripty Hugs sentiment using the same gold foil adhesive paper. After I adhered my hugs sentiment onto my card, I added our Clear Rhinestones. They look like gorgeous little rain drops!

That’s all for today. I was extremely satisfied with this bright and fiery, watercolored daisy.

I created a similar card a few months ago using the same colors, however, I used a different technique. Instead of painting the pigment onto my panel, I spritzed the pigment onto my panel straight from the color burst bottle. You can check out the video here.

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!!!

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.
