Tropical Christmas

Hi, crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card in tropical color scheme! I’ve never been to Australia or other countries in the southern hemisphere. So it’s hard to imagine how it would be over there at Christmas in the middle of Summer 🙂 ! I thought it would be fun to make a tropical holiday card !

First I stamped the Poinsettia Bouquet on a A2 sized watercolor paper panel. I stamped a small part of the large image four times on each corner of the panel to create a floral border. I stamped it in Soft Cream to do no line coloring.

I watercolored the image in bright colors and left the background white. I added a bit of shade to the image using Polychromos colored pencils. I then cut the panel with the largest die from the Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested die set and adhered it flat on a white cardbase.

I cut the Merry Christmas Sentiment from a golden cardstock which I made by adhering the Adhesive Gold Foil paper on white cardstock and foam mounted it on the card. I finished off the card with a few Medallion Gold sequins. 

That’s it from me ! Hope you’ve got some inspiration from my card! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!


Merry Christmas !

Merry Christmas everyone!  Hope you’re enjoying a relaxing holiday with your loved ones today! It’s TaeEun here and of course I’ve made a Christmas card for today’s post 🙂 ! 

I used our holiday die collection. This card was made without any stamping! 

I started off by ink blending the slimline background. First I applied Lemon Drop lightly in the middle of the panel in an arch shape and kept going with Coraline Hybrid, Hollywood Star, Plum Wine, Iris Blooms and True Navy towards the upper border of the panel. After ink blending was done I splattered white opaque ink on it and let it dry. I then cut the panel using the largest die from Slimline Pierced Nested die set and foam mounted it on a white slimline cardbase.

Next I die cut all the holiday themed elements; Santa’s Sleigh, Merry Christmas and the Pine Trees from some heavyweight white cardstock. I cut the  Santa’s Sleigh two times and layered them. The Merry Christmas sentiment was cut one more time from a panel on which I ink blended in the same colors I used for the background panel. I adhered Glossy Fine Transparent adhesive glitter paper on it before I cut the sentiment.

I adhered the pine trees first on the background, some of them using foam tape and then the sentiment was added to it. To add the  Santa’s Sleigh I doubled the foam tape for more dimension. I decorated the trees with Crystal Stickles and some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins and the card was finished !

That was my last post for the year of 2020! 

Thank you so much for your love and support this year! Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and happy new year, hopefully more normal than 2020! 


Rainbow Christmas Wish

Hi all. Vera here today bringing you some more last minute Christmas card ideas. I have to say this year, I really get into making Christmas cards more than ever. Maybe because of the time I have on my hand or maybe because of the facts that there are many fun products on my stash that really help me get in the mood.

For this card, I used an older set, called Christmas Sweater. I taped several felt square to the side of a thick cardboard and put some alcohol ink drops and then swipe them on a piece of Yupo paper. This is probably one of my favorite way to create rainbow background with alcohol ink.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the Christmas Sweater on the panel. Trim the panel and adhere to card base. Next, I die cut the word Christmas using Many Sentiments (Holiday) Coverplate dies on a piece of metallic cardstock. Adhere to card base. To finish, I stamped & heat embossed the word Merry from Winter Foliage set.

There, a rainbow colored Christmas card. I know, not your typical Christmas color, but I figure everyone loves rainbow, so why not. Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card. And, from our house to yours, I wish you all a very merry Christmas. Thank you for all your support for The Ton and here’s to a brighter 2021. Cheers….
