Hugs For You

Hi peeps! Happy Monday! Can you believe it that we’re already in the last week of March? Time sure flies isn’t it?

Well, before we fly through this week, I am here today to bring you a creative inspiration from The Ton.

My crafty friends and I try to get together once a month and this past weekend was our monthly meeting. It was fun as everyone were so buzzing with creativity. It never fails to get my creativity going on full blast.

One of the card I worked on was this card.

Seriously, this Peony Laurel set is one of my favorite. I stamped, colored & die cut the flower. On this card, I really didn’t have any plan on what I am going to do. I often just started with a favorite set & go from there.

Once I finished the flower, I was debating on what next & remember I have this Holiday Chic Tag dies that hasn’t got that much love. So, I decided to use it to ground my sentiment. Die cut the tag & colored it with various ink then die cut the word Hugs using one of the word dies from Peony Laurel coordinating dies set.

Adhere the flower & the tag to the panel & adhere them to the card base. Then, stamped the other sentiments.

I can’t help but have to use the birdies from Nesting Peonies set. Did I ever tell you how much I love birdies? I love them! 🙂 Oh yes, I also added a little strip of stripes on the bottom. I think it add the perfect finishing touch to this card, so it’s not too plain.

Well peeps, that’ all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card & may your week tarts off wonderfully. Cheers….


Geo Mountain Coverplate Dies

Hello and welcome to The Ton’s blog! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards made using Geo Mountain layering coverplate dies and new floral stamps from Spring release.

Geo Mountain Coverplate dies are designed to be used in layers. For today’s cards I used them separately as backdrops for my watercolored florals. I love that the panels cut with Geo Mountain coverplate dies look like traditional korean window or door frames and they go beautifully with the soft watercolored flowers.

On my first card I made a white on white background panel and small extra frame using Geo Mountain Coverplate dies  for my yellow dahlias.

The dahlias and leaves are from Large Dahlia1, 2, 3 and Wild Dahlias. The bud was borrowed from Coming Up Dahlias set. All pieces were white heat embossed on some watercolor paper and watercolored. I added some sparkle using yellow and orange glitter markers. I then cut them all using coordinating dies ( Large Dahlia1, 2, 3Wild DahliasComing Up Dahlias).

Geo Mountain Coverplate Die A was cut from a white cardstock and glued on a white cardbase. I cut another white cardstock panel using Geo Mountain Coverplate Die B and a frame using Double Stitched Square dies. I attached the die cut panel behind the  square frame and snipped off the extra piece to create the square mat for my dahlias. I blended a bit of Lemon Drop on it and foam mounted the square mat onto the card and arranged the flowers and leaves on it.

The gold heat embossed sentiment is from The Most Interesting Cardmaker. I added a thin strip of Gold Foil paper to the sentiment strip and foam mounted it onto the card. The finishing touch was Lemon Chiffon and Glass Slippers sequins.

The second card is featuring Geo Mountains Coverplate Die C and Nesting Peonies.

I cut Geo Mountains Coverplate Die C from some gray cardstock and adhered it on a white cardbase. I left some of the small pieces in their places.

The beautiful cluster of  Nesting Peonies was white heat embossed on some watercolor paper and watercolored. I used peyne’s gray for the leaves to match it to the background.

I then cut the image using coordinating die and foam mounted it onto the card. The sentiment from Toned Squares was white heat embossed on gray cardstock. I fussy cut it and added it to the card. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Spotlight and Amethyst Quarts (small clear sequins).


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

Thank you so much for stopping by!
