Pink Butterflies

Hello everyone! Hope the week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring some of our butterfly stamps.

Did you know that there is no real pink butterflies in the nature? I realized it recently as I decided to make the butterflies for my cards pink. I was curious and googled. hmmm.. but why not? Nothing is impossible in cardmaking 🙂 !

For my first card I used Sunny Folk Garden stamp set which includes some whimsical butterflies and layering florals. I added also a frame made using the Garden Foliage Coverplate SVG cut file.

I cut the Garden Foliage Coverplate three times from heavy weight white cardstock and glued them together to add dimension. I set it aside and started to make the main panel. I stamped the layered flowers from Sunny Folk Garden stamp set in Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink and the leaves in Caribbean Turquoise. I stamped the floral cluster on the bottom and left border of the panel. I then ink blended Caribbean Turquoise on the bottom of the panel and Lemon Drop on the top of the panel.

I stamped one butterfly in Lemon Drop and filled it with the patterns in Arctic Sky and Caribbean Turquoise. I fussy cut the butterfly and glued it on the main panel as shown in the picture. I also stamped another butterfly in Hollywood Star and heat embossed the inner pattern in Rose Gold. I cut the butterfly and set it aside.

I adhered the main panel on a white cardbase and added the Garden Foliage Coverplate to it. The sentiment is from Transformation set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of white cardstock , ink blended it in Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink and cut it in a banner.

I adhered the pink butterfly next to the sentiment and finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers sequins.

The second card is featuring our washi tapes and butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set.

I started off by making the background panel using Pink Peonies washi tape. I adhered it on a white cardstock panel and added white gesso on the center of it. I then stamped the “hugs” in Hollywood Star using Brushed Hugs stamp set. I heat embossed the upper half of the letters in Rose Gold. I cut it using the coordinating die and set it aside.

I cut the small floral elements from the Pink Peonies washi tape and wildflowers washi tape which I adhered on some white cardstock. The little butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set were heat embossed in Rose Gold and then ink blended in Soft Garnet.  I cut them using the coordinating dies (now we have the coordinating cut files in the shop!).

I cut the panel with the Pink Peonies washi tape using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on a pink cardbase. I foam mounted the words and arranged the flowers and butterflies as shown in the picture. I finished off the card with a few clear dew drops.

I like the texture which the white gesso adds to the background. It also toned down the pattern in the background!

That’s it from my side today! I hope you enjoyed a little break from making holiday cards  🙂 !

Wishing you all a happy and crafty week!





Lilly hugs

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here to continue sharing my love of The Ton SVG digital cut file. I seriously love them. No, I am not saying it because I am on their design team, but because I genuinely love them and I think you could totally see it in my creations.

I have more cards to share using the cut files. Well, for today, I am playing with Fresh Layered Lily Bundle SVG Cut File. When I saw it, I was like, oh me, me, me… I want it! I love working with flowers in case you couldn’t tell. 😉

I started by cutting the framed lily with my Brother Scan ‘n Cut. Once that done, I adhere the outline frame to  the card base after laying out all the inside pieces. Then, I colored all the pieces. I actually started by using distress oxide ink.

Then, I wasn’t quite happy with the result and I thought I should add more details with my Copic. Well, I ended up  liking the Copic results more, so I just colored all the pieces with Copic all over again. Apparently it still works to color on top of the distress oxide. 🙂


Once I am happy with the coloring, then I added more details with white glaze pen. Just drawing a bunch of dots at various sizes. Done with that, adhered all the pieces inside the outline.

For the sentiment, I used the sentiment from Peony Laurel (I used this set a lot!!). Stamped it and fill out the open space of the letter.

I decided the card still need a bit more zing to it, so I covered the flower and sentiment with napkin paper and spray & sprinkle some white paint. And, that’s it.

Have you give the digital file a try? If not, I encourage you to give it a try. They’re so reasonable priced and so easy to use and they work with all kind of cutting machine.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. May your weekend starts off wonderfully.


Hummingbird & Garden Foliage

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today and I am bringing you more digital cut inspirations as I am still obsess with The Ton digital cuts collection.

Let’s get on with the card, shall we?

For this card, I used Basic Roses SVG Cut File on my Brother Scan ‘n Cut. Before removing the cut out, I inked it up with some distress oxides. Once I am happy with the result, I remove the cut out and instead of using the line part, I used the inner part and used the line part as guidelines to glue down the parts.

Then, I worked on one of my favorite cut file, the Hummingbird Layering. For this one, I went all sparkly by using glitter paper for all the parts of the hummingbird. And, I love, love, love the way the hummingbird turned out.
For the eye, I dab black enamel accent and I feel this little detail do make a difference. Finished the card by adding birthday sentiment from Happy Florals set.

As I mentioned earlier, I am a bit obsessed with all the cool digital cut files that Effie been created, that for today I ended having 2 cards instead of just 1. Yay!!

Now, for my next card, I make it even more fun by making a shaker card.

For this one, I cut out the Garden Foliage Coverplate, colored it with various ink pads and then adhere it to a piece of acetate that I cut just slightly smaller than the foliage frame. Then I mix various color sequins from The Ton sequin collection and adhere the foliage frame over the mix. Finished the card by simply stamping the sentiment on a strip of cardstock.

I hope you enjoy today’s cards as much as I enjoy making them. And, I actually finished another sparkly hummingbird, but I still need to create a card for it.

That’s all for me today peep. May your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers….


Floral Cards

Hi everyone. Vera here today to start your week with some fresh inspiration from The Ton.

Yesterday, Effie released some new digital cut files and I just had to play with them right away. I used my Brother Scan ‘N Cut to do the cards below.

Let’s start with our layerable Floral Bud coverplate file. This cut file has two cutting coverplate images that you can layer together. But, for my card I just used one layer.

I started by cutting the Floral Bud cover. Then using it as loose guidance, I dropped some alcohol pearl inks on Yupo paper and spread it over. Once I am happy with the color, I simply laid over a silver foil, rub on it and lifted it up. The foil sticks to the area that still semi wet, creating interesting pattern.


Next, simply add foam adhesives on the back of the floral bud frame and adhere it to the yupo paper. Then adhere the layered piece to the card base. For the sentiment, I used my favorite sentiment from Wishful Wildflowers set.

For my second card, I used Basic Roses SVG file.

I simply cut out the floral elements from a piece of white cardstock and before lifting it up from the mat, I colored the pieces with various distress oxide ink pad. I love this tyle as I feel it ha a modern feeling and perfect for clean & simple card.

To finish, I simply stamped the sentiment from Loose Peonies set with Caviar ink pad. I love that I can make these cards quickly thanks to the digital cut files. You could use these files with Cricut and Silhouette as well. Fun, right?

Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s cards as much as I enjoy making it. That’s all from me today. May your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers….
