Trio of Cards

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today to bring you some fun, crafty projects for this weekend.

I am an over achiever today… hah… because I actually have 3 cards to share with you. Let’ get on with it, shall we? For my first card, I used the new Geometric Circles Cover Plate to cut out the background out of gold pearl paper.

How gorgeous is this geometric pattern? I think it’s stunning and made such an elegant background. To soften the look I combine it with a set from previous release, the Fresh Cut Carnations stamp along with its coordinating diesAfter I layered the flowers on the card, then I stamped the thinking of you sentiment from Penned Sentiments set. Finished by adding some sequins from Mint Sugar Couture Mix.

The next couple cards I totally went pastel, cause I am ready for spring!! I had lots of fun watercoloring this card, using the gorgeous 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate Die.

I die cut this piece out of watercolor cardstock and did loose watercoloring on it. Once it dry, I adhere it to  the card base and finish it by stamping the sentiment from Large Peony 4 set and adhere some mix size dew drops.

Now, my last but not least card is a bit more brighter, using Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate die.

When I saw this dies, I was like oohh, ahh…., cause it’s just beautiful!! Just like the previous card, I die cut this out of watercolor cardstock and just watercolor the flowers and the leaves and leave the sentiment clean. I added an extra sentiment from Penned Sentiments set (I edit the sentiment by cutting out the scripty happy birthday part).

There you go, 3 cards using the latest 3 new dies from The Ton. I hope you like them and hopefully get you inspired. Don’t forget, The Ton also have monthly challenge and you still have a few more days to join our February challenge. Hope you can join us. That’s all from me  today and may you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Cheers….

Monochromatic floral cards

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards. Yes, let’s take a break from Christmas cards :)!

I used Fresh Cut Carnations and Large Florals: Carnation set from our Fall 2017 Release. I kept the cards in a monochromatic style in blue and purple respectively by making the background in the same tone like the flowers.

Let’s start with the blue version!

I stamped the layered carnations from Fresh Cut Carnations in Cobalt breeze and Deep Sapphire. I skipped the first layer to brighten the image. I stamped the stem in gray using Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz and cut all the images out with coordinating dies. I then created the watercolor background panel by adding blue paint loosely on a wet watercolor paper. I added blue and white splatters on it and let it dry. The panel was cut with the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and glued on a white cardbase. To white emboss the sentiment from Magnificent Magnolias I blended Cobalt breeze and Deep Sapphire on a strip of white cardstock. I matted the sentiment strip with some Silver glitter adhesive paper and foam mounted the sentiment and flowers onto the card along with some silver thread. To finish off the card I used some sequins from Milky Way and Midnight Frost Couture Mix.

For my second card I used Large Florals: Carnation set.  To stamp the large carnation I used Iris Blooms and Grape Crush dye ink. Here also I skipped the first layer. I cut the flower with the coordinating die and set it aside.

To create the background panel I die loose watercolor wash on some watercolor paper in purple and light blue. I then stamped the second layer of the leave image on it in Iris Blooms . And I added some leaves from Large Peony set 1 and 3 in Soft Amethyst. I then splattered purple and opaque white watercolor on it and let it dry. I foam mounted the flower on a nest made with some silver thread. The sentiment is from Large Florals: Carnation as well. I made a ombre purple strip by blending Iris Blooms and Grape Crush and white heat embossed the sentiment. For some sparkle I added a thin line of purple glitter tape and mounted the sentiment strip onto the card. My finishing touch was some clear Dew Drops.
