Trio of Cards

Hi peeps! How’ thing going? Vera here today. Right after hurricane Harvey, I managed to get out of Houston for a bit to meet up with my whole family. I haven’t seen  my brothers for 3 years, so this was a big deal for me.

Anyway, after a few weeks of no crafting, I am back in full swing and I actually have 3 cards to share with you today. Booyah! 😉

First up is this magnolia beauty featuring the Magnolia Fields Cling Background stamp.

I start by stamping the image to a card panel and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then add some coloring with Copic markers. Once that done I adhere the panel to  the card base and add the sentiment from Occasion Confetti set and hat embossed it with the Rose Gold embossing powder.

Then I stamped, colored the bicycle and the flowers from Beautiful Day Bicycle set and die-cut it using its matching dies. I really love the way this card turned out and yes, I have a friend in mind to whom  this card will go to.

Next, I played with the new Waterfall set.

On a piece of cardstock panel, I stamped the waterfall image and the sentiment. Adhere the panel to the card base. Then I realized that this waterfall scene is perfect to combine with the majestic Eagle set. Having the Eagle matching dies definitely help making this card in a jiffy. Now, I have a masculine card handy (which is very rare for me).

And, last but not least, I played with City Girls: Book Life stamp & its coordinating dies.

I stamped and colored the girl with the book image first, die-cut it and then adhere directly to the card base. Oh and I kind of guessing where I want the sentiment and stamped that before I glued down the image. I also popped the book for extra dimension. Once that done, I stamped the Anemone Cluster Mini image, colored and die-cut it using the Anemone Mini Cluster dies. Adhere the image with pop-dots. And, voila, I am done.

So, there you go. 3 cards from me today that I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy making them. That’s all from me today. I have my mom in town staying with me for a while, so I am treasuring my moment with her. May your Friday  be a fabulous one. Cheers…

Eagles Fly Alone

Hello everyone!!! Hope your week is going well so far! It’s TaeEun here today with an encouragement card! The first day of the new school year is just around the corner (at least where I am 🙂 )! So I thought some of our younger friends need a good amount of encouragement to start off their new chapter !

For today’s card I used Eagle, Mountains and Thoughtful Poppies.

To create the silver eagle I die cut the eagle from some white cardstock using coordinating die. I then silver heat embossed the third layer of the body, detail layer of the tail and head and solid layer of the feet. The eye, mouth and the claws were stamped in Noir. The mountain was die cut using coordinating die from some black cardstock. I stamped the third layer on it in Hampton white pigment ink. I stamped it twice with the help of Misti tool to make it brighter. The second layer was stamped in Hampton white pigment ink as well, but this time only once, so that the layers could be seen.

The Thoughtful Poppies was silver heat embossed on some watercolor paper, colored using Brusho powders and die cut with coordinating die.  I then prepared the dark red cardbase. I wanted an ombre look of it, so I blended Dark Roast, Spiced Chai and Pink Derby on the upper third of the cardbase. The sentiment is from Eagle set. I heat embossed it in silver on the cardbase. To assemble my card I glued the mountain flat on the cardbase and foam mounted the eagle and the poppy cluster onto the card. I cut out the poppies along the edge of the card. Some sequins from Spotlight Couture mix and Glossy Black sequins mix were my finishing touch!

Happy Early 4th of July

Hello and welcome back to our blog! Before I begin with my card, I have a small product announcement: our Summer 2017 Release Incentive Products are now available for sale in our shop!

For today, I have a patriotic card for an early Fourth of July card created with our new Eagle and Mountains sets.

I started off by die cutting my eagle shape onto cardstock. I kept it within the panel with some washi tape because this prevented the shifting of the piece of cardstock as I stamped my layers. The reason I die cut my panel first before stamping the actual eagle was to ensure that my stamping was precise and that it coordinated with the die.

I stamped the body of my eagle starting with the third layer in our Dark Roast ink. Then I stamped the first two layers with Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz. The head was stamped with Crystal Pewter (our lightest gray ink). The tail was stamped with our Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. The beak was stamped with Amber Citrine. The feet were stamped in Amber Citrine and Peach Blossom. The details on the head (eye and beak) and talons were stamped with our Noir dye ink. Once my eagle was completely stamped, I took the washi tape off from behind the panel and set the eagle aside as I stamped my mountains.

For my Mountains, I used our Pewter collection inks. I added landscape details by stamping the trees with our Noir dye ink. Next I die cut the mountains using the coordinating die.

Next I used Alizarin Crimson and Indigo Colorbursts to create a watercolored background.  After I dried my watercolor panel, I splattered some clean water drops onto the panel and lifted color off the panel with a paper towel. This helped create some texture to the background.

Then I created a top folding horizontal cardbase and adhered silver glitter tape to the top and bottom edges. Then I adhered my watercolor panel onto the base and popped up my mountains and eagle over my background. Next I stamped my banner and sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink and then die cut the banner with its coordinating die. I added shading to the banner with my zig markers (haze blue and light gray). Once the banner was complete, I popped it up under my eagle.

I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thanks for stopping by and have a happy and safe holiday!
