Grouped Fresh Carnations

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a sympathy card in a very soft color scheme. I used the Grouped Fresh Carnations set to stamp the soft pink flowers. Using the grouped layering stamp sets you can get all the elements you need to arrange your cluster with only a few stamping steps! 

I started off by stamping the Grouped Fresh Carnations. To get a very soft look I skipped the first layer of the flowers and stems. So I stamped the second layer and the third layer of the carnations in Whisper Pink and Bubblegum and the second layer of the stems in Matcha. The stenciled flowers were cut using the coordinating one-piece die

To create the background I first ink blended the left half of the front of a white cardbase in Whisper Pink and Bubblegum and splattered white ink. While the cardbase was dry, I cut a white panel using the A2 Quilted die and cut a window from it using a die from the Double Pierced Ornate Nested Dies. I also cut the grid using the Convention coverplate die and adhered it on the back of the window.

I foam mounted the background panel and arranged two carnations on it. The sentiment is from the Easy Expressions Sympathy set. I gold heat embossed the script part of it and stamped the other part in Noir

To finish off I scattered a few Crystal Clear Rhinestones

Thank you so much for looking! Hope I was able to inspire you with my card today 🙂 !


Mother’s Day Card

Hi there! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here with a Mother’s Day card in a bold color combo, navy and pink! 

I used Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies for the background and placed a little bouquet of carnations on it. For the bouquet I used the outline stamp of the Grouped Fresh Carnations set. The carnations represent the purity of a mother’s love, perfect for a Mother’s Day card!

I started off by gold heat embossing the Carnations from Grouped Fresh Carnations set on a watercolor paper and watercolored them. As the image was heat embossed the watercoloring was so easy and quick. After the flowers were dry I cut them using the Coordinating die and set them aside. The bow was from Christmas Bows grouped layering stamp set. It was stamped in Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink and Pink Derby and cut with the coordinating die.

Before I cut the Gingham Plaid Layering panels I made an ombre blue (dark blue to white) watercolored panel and let it dry. I cut the first layer of the Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies from the watercolored panel and the second and third layer from some heavyweight white cardstock. I ink blended the two white die cut layers in Italian Denim, Miami Cool and Cobalt Breeze to match with the first layer. 

I then chose a navy cardbase, layered the three layers of the Gingham Plaid on it and splattered white opaque ink.

The Sentiment is from Gladiola Cheer stamp set. I heat embossed it in gold on some vellum, cut one end of it in a fishtail and adhered it on the card. I then added the carnations and the bow on the card using foam tape. To finish off I used some sequins from Midnight Frost Couture Mix and Glass Slippers.

I love the freshness which the contrast of the bright colors gives the card. Hope you like it too!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Wishing you all a wonderful week!


Bonny Blooms & Carnation

Hi all. Vera here to bring you fresh inspiration to start your week. I always enjoy making cads with flower image and of course as usual The Ton new release has plenty of gorgeous sets to play with. For today, I have a couple cards to share. First up, I am showcasing the pretty Bonny Blooms set.

What a gorgeous set, right? I simply stamped the flower and color the image with Copic. Trim the panel a bit and adhere to the card base.

For the sentiment, I used one of the sentiment from Easy Expression and finish by adding some enamel dots.

With fabulous release, I definitely can’t just post 1 card, right? For my second card, I combine Gingham Plaid Layering Dies with Grouped Fresh Carnations.

I started by die cutting all 3 layer of the plaid then did some ink blending on all of them. Of course, as usual, I go for the soft color combination. Adhere all the layers and add to the card base. Nest, stamp, heat embossed, color & die cut the flower from Grouped Fresh Carnations. Adhere to card with foam adhesive. Finish by adding sentiment from Easy Expression and some enamel dots.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s projects and hope it inspire you to create as well. Cheers!
