Heartfelt Hugs

Hi all. Vera here. Hope you started 2022 in a wonderful way. I basically fell asleep before midnight, but hey, I considered having a good night sleep as a good way to start the day/year. Hah!

Even though right now is winter, I figure we couldn’t go wrong with floral card. That goes for all season, right?

For my card today, I used the lovely Heartfelt Blossoms set. I first ink blending Tourmaline on a piece of cardstock panel. I could use colored cardstock, but I really want this particular color background and decided to go with ink blending. Once done, I stamped and heat embossed the image off to the right side of the panel with Versamark ink and white embossing powder. Next, I stamped the same image again, die cut with coordinating Heartfelt Blossoms die and colored it with Copic markers.

I colored the white area around the flowers with Copic marker as well to make it blend better with the background. Once I am done with the coloring, I trimmed the panel to remove the dark edges and adhere it to the card base. Next, I adhere the colored blossoms with foam adhesive and trim the parts that sticking out. Turned out I am not too happy with the pink flower coloring once I adhere it, so I keep working on it till I achieved the look that I want. Finally, stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock and add to the card. Finished by adding some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.

I am loving this color combination and I hope you enjoy today’s card as well. Stay tune for our anniversary release that’s coming this week. All I can say, lots of pretty sets coming. Thank you all for stopping by here and may your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers….

Watercolored Heartfelt Blossoms

Hello friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a watercolored floral card! The Ton has released so many beautiful floral outline stamps recently. As you might know I love coloring flowers and I was so excited about the Spring release

For today’s card I played with Heartfelt Blossoms stamp set. This is a large floral cluster with two wildflowers (they look like cosmos flowers for me) and berries. 

I stamped the image in Caviar hybrid ink which is watercolor friendly. I stamped the image a bit to the left side to have a larger blank area on the top right corner.
I then watercolored the image loosely using Cotman watercolors. I worked in a few layers to get the look I wanted. I also colored the background in the same green I used for the leaves and cerulean blue for some area. 

After the panel was dry I splattered black watercolor mainly on the background part and white opaque ink on the flower part. I let the splatters dry and cut it with the second largest die of the Rectangle A2 Nested Die set and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. 

The sentiment is also from the Heartfelt Blossoms stamp set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock. As finishing touch I added some Glass Slippers sequins.

Hope you enjoyed looking my card! Please check out the Spring Release, if you haven’t already. There are so many beautiful floral designs!

Thank you so much for looking!

Wishing you a crafty day! 

Hugs,

TaeEun
