This hop runs from Friday, May. 22. to Friday, May. 29. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog . See all the details HERE.

I made a coffee themed ( it could be a cup of hot cocoa, if you want 🙂 ) shaker card using our Tea Party coordinating die set and some of our new items from May Release : Rose Patch stamp and die set and Oval Nested die.


I started off by cutting the front oval piece. I cut it using the cup die from the Tea Party coordinating die and an Oval Nested die. I cut it from some gold glitter paper and white cardstock and adhered them together to make the panel sturdier. I adhered a piece of clear acetate on the back of the panel and set it aside.


Next I prepared the background panel. I watercolored the panel in ombre brown. I wanted that the brown reminds you of coffee or cocoa, so I made the background upwards from the middle of the cup very bright. After the background panel was dry I drew a few lines using a gold gel pen.

I mounted the background flat on a creme cardbase and made the shaker part by adding the front piece using foam tape. I used Hot Cocoa Couture Mix as the shaker elements.


To embellish the card front I arranged a small rose bouquet using Rose Patch, Bountiful Leaves and Floral Bits stamp set and coordinating dies. The orange flowers were stamped in  Amber CitrineCoraline HybridCoral Cavern and the leaves in  Soft GardenBright FernDeep Emerald.

The sentiment is from Easy Expressions. I gold heat embossed the handwritten part and stamped the rest in Noir. I cut it using the coordinating die and added it to the card.

I finished off the card with three Medallion Gold sequins.


I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to hop over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa ready in your hand, as there are so many other participants playing along on this hop.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have a happy hopping!



so very happy for you

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here sharing a couple of floral cards which are mainly watercolored. I happened to use the same sentiment for both of my cards, so I took the title of my post from it 🙂 .

Without further ado let’s get on today’s cards!

In the first card I paired the morning glories from Morning Glory Cheer stamp set with the Morning Glory Border background.

I started off by making the background panel. I white heat embossed the Morning Glory Border background and colored it using Color Burst powders in blue, purple and green. I cut the panel using a Rectangle A2 Nested Die and set it aside.

The Morning Glory Cheer was stamped in the Amethyst collection, the Blues Collection and the Crystal Garden Collection. I cut them using the coordinating die.

I then assembled the card together. The background panel was foam mounted on a navy cardbase. I added a piece of vellum rectangle, one side of which was torn, to the background to tone it down. The morning glory cluster was arranged on the vellum. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions set. I gold heat embossed the handwritten part and stamped the rest in Noir. I. cut it using the coordinating die.  I added the sentiment using some foam tape and scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins to finish off the card.

For the second card I used the outline leaves from Bountiful Leaves set.

TT0520 2 1 WM

I white heat embossed the leaves and cut them using the coordinating die. I arranged the leaves on a piece of A2 sized scrap paper to get an idea where I should add colors in the background. I watercolored a watercolor paper panel in blue and green and let it dry.

I then adhered the die cut leaves on the background panel and watercolored them also in blue and green. I added lots of white splatters on the panel. After the panel was dry I cut the panel using a Rectangle A2 Nested Die  and foam mounted it on a white cardbase.

TT0520 2 2 WM

I used the same sentiment that I used for the first card. I added a tiny bouquet of yellow flowers with the sentiment strip to the card. The little flowers are made using the Floral Bits stamp and die set. To finish off the card I added some Lemon Chiffon and Glass Slippers sequins.

That’s it from me today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!

Stay well, lovelies!




Grouped Layering Stamps

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all well and stay healthy! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I made using some of our grouped layering stamp sets. I used Peony Memories Cardmaking, Rose of Sharon, Floral Bits 1 & 2 and Spring Layered Alphas stamp sets and coordinating dies.

If you haven’t heard about the grouped Layering stamp sets yet, you have to check them out! It is an ingenious layering system, which helps you layer multiple images at the same time. There are coverplate coordinating dies for these stamp sets, which cut the whole panel of stamped images in a single pass through your die cutting machine!

Let’s take a look at my cards!

The first one is made using Peony Memories Cardmaking set and Spring Layered Alphas set.

TT050 2 1 WM

I stamped the pink peonies in Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria hybrid ink, the yellow peonies in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop and Amber Citrine and the leaves in Crystal Garden Collection inks. After the stamping was done I cut them using the coordinating dies and set them all aside.

TT050 2 4 WM

To stamp the Spring Layered Alphas I picked Noir for the letters, Soft Garnet for the large flowers and Soft Garden and Hot Tourmaline for the leaves. The small flowers were heat embossed in Rose Gold. I cut all the letters using the coverplate die.

To create the background I white heat embossed the starry confetti from the Confetti Borders stamp set on both sides of an A2 sized white panel and ink blended it in Lemon Drop, Soft Garnet, Soft Garden and Cali Blue.

TT050 2 2 WM

I then started assembling my card. I mounted the background panel flat on a pink cardbase and arranged the floral clusters. I adhered the leaves flat on the background and raised the flowers using some foam tape. The letters were added with foam adhesives. The small sentiment is from Layered Floral Alpha stamp set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of yellow cardstock and added it to the card. To finish off I scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

The second card is showcasing Rose of Sharon and theFloral Bits 1 & 2 stamp sets.

TT050 1 WM

I stamped the Rose of Sharon and the flower of the Floral Bits 2 in Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink, Grand Fuchsia and Spiced Chai. For the Floral Bits 1 I used Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine and Coralline Hybrid ink. For the leaves I used Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Everglade Moss.

TT050 4 WM

I cut the flowers using the coordinating die, arranged them on a piece of A2 sized paper, secured the arrangement with a piece of Press’n Seal wrap and adhered foam tapes on the back of the floral arrangement.

TT050 2 WM

I ink blended Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink on the front of a white cardbase making the perimeter darker than the center and added white splatters. I stamped the sentiment from Rose of Sharon set in Noir and transferred the floral arrangement onto the cardbase. I cut off the excessive area of the floral arrangement and added a few clear Dew drops to finish off the card.

Using the grouped layering stamp sets and coordinating dies you can stamp and cut the floral elements and sentiments only with several steps. I really love to have the finished florals in my stash for my next projects!

Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today!

Wishing you a crafty day!
