Peony Dreams Cluster

Hello everyone! Hope the month of July is off to a great start for you all! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I created using the beautiful Peony Dreams Cluster stamp! Peony Dreams Cluster is a big clear background stamp in 5.75 x 5.75 inches which includes two huge peonies.

For the first card I stamped the image as it is.

To start off I white heat embossed the Peony Dreams Cluster on a watercolor paper panel and colored the image using Color Burst powders. I colored one peony in Fuchsia and the other in orange leaving the tip of each petal almost white to add highlight.

After the panel was dry I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. I then cut the sentiment using Hugs word die once from Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy Fine Silver and three times from some heavyweight white cardstock. I stacked them together and adhered it onto the card. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

For the next card I stamped only the part with one peony on a corner of a A2 sized panel, masked the flower and added some branches with little flowers to create a new floral cluster design.

I stamped Peony Dreams Cluster in light ink to do no-line coloring. After stamping was done I colored the image using Luminance colored pencils. I wanted to try a unusual color combination: burgundy, brown and gray. I also tried a new to me coloring style which shows the pencil strokes. It was hard for me to step out of my comfort zone but I’m glad I gave it a try.

The sentiment from Penned Sentiments set was gold heat embossed directly on the colored panel.

The colored panel was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle die again and foam mounted on a kraft cardbase. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.

Coloring using Layering Stamps

Hello everyone! And happy Friday!!!  🙂 It’s TaeEun here today with two carnation cards to share with you.

I love gorgeous layering stamps by The Ton. But I’m a coloring addict, as you may already know, and have to color even images from layering stamps 🙂 . For today’s cards I used the third layer of Large Florals: Carnation stamp set as my guide to color the carnations. The carnation on the first card was watercolored using Inktense pencils and the second carnation was colored using Prismacolor colored pencils.

Let’s take a look at my first card!

To start off I stamped the third layer of the Large Florals: Carnation in Picked Raspberry DI on some Bristol smooth paper. To define the outline of the flower I made a mask of the solid image, masked the flower and blended Crystal Pewter very light around the carnation flower. I then colored the flower using Inktense pencils. They are water soluble colored pencils, which are famous for their vibrant colors. First I drew the outlines of the petals in dark pink and added the darkest shade in the same color. I then blended the color out towards the tip of the petals using a wet brush. I added a little bit of red on some area. For the leaves I stamped the detail layer in green after masking the flower and colored them in blue and green. After the panel was dry, I fussy cut the carnation. The background panel was created by smooshing some green and blue Distress inks on mixed media paper. I added thin strips of Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver on both sides of the panel and glued it flat on the soft pink cardbase.

I then foam mounted a square frame, cut with Double Stitched Square dies from a silver glitter panel made using  Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver and added the flower using foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Penned Sentiments set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and added it onto the card. I used clear and Seaglass blue Dew Drops to embellish my card.

On my next card I used Black magic coloring technique (here gray magic? 🙂 ).

I chose a gray cardstock for my next carnation. To color on a gray panel I first stamped the solid image in Hampton white pigment ink. After the white pigment ink was dry I stamped the third layer in Soft Garnet on the solid image. With the third layer as my guide I sketched the outlines of the petals using dark pink Prismacolor pencil and then started to color the carnation. I colored the leaves in various cool gray pencils and added shades around the carnation in gray too. I then created a bokeh background using Hampton white pigment ink and circle stencils. I narrowed down the gray panel while leaving the leaves , adhered thin strips of Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver on both sides and mounted the panel flat on the soft pink cardbase.

The sentiment from Penned Sentiments was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. The other part of the sentiment was stamped in Hampton white pigment underneath the black sentiment strip. To finish off I scattered some sequins from New Year and Spotlight Couture Mix.
