Large Flowers

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards to share with you.

I love The Ton’s large flower stamps like Large Peony , Large Dahlia or Large Florals series.  And there are many big flower images from other stamp sets like the peonies you can find from Peony Duo set. They are all beautiful and the open flower images are just perfect to color using any medium!

For today’s cards I chose Large Florals: Heritage Rose and the big peony from Peony Duo as my focal image and added them on a textured background created using Geo Mountain Coverplate die cuts as stencils.

This is the first card featuring Large Florals: Heritage Rose .

I started by stamping and cutting the big rose, leaves and small flower branches. The flowers are stamped in Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria hybrid ink and the leaves in Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz and Light Onyx. They were all cut using coordinating dies.

To create the background I cut a heavy weight cardstock using Geo Mountain Coverplate Die A to use it as a stencil. I placed the DIY stencil on a piece of shimmer cardstock and applied clear glitter embossing paste on it. I did it only partially. After the panel was dry I cut it with a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a light gray cardbase. I then arranged the floral elements onto the card as shown in the picture. Some are glued flat and some mounted with foam adhesives.

The sentiment was cut using Hello word die three times from some white cardstock. On one of the cardstock pieces I adhered Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive glitter paper. I love how well the glitter paper and glitter paste go together! The die cut hellos were stacked together and added onto the rose.

The second card is showing the big peony image from Peony Duo on black.

I silver heat embossed the big peony and the leaves on some watercolor cardstock and colored them using Color Burst. The peony was colored in Cerulean Blue, Indigo and Orchid and the leaves in Turquoise, Chartreuse and Lime Green. I then cut them all with coordinating dies.

To create the background I used black cardstock, which was cut using a Double Stitched Rectangle die, and black embossing paste. As the stencil I used die cut piece cut with Geo Mountain Coverplate Die B this time. I scattered glitter on the paste while it was still wet and let the panel dry.  The dried panel was mounted on a black cardbase. I then placed the peony flower and leaves on it.

The sentiment was cut with Hugs word die. I added die cut word from Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive glitter paper on the top.

Happy Mother’s Day !

Hello crafty friends!!! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there 🙂 ! It’s TaeEun here today with a Mother’s day card and a Thank you card!

I colored the florals using alcohol inks in two different ways. I love to color large flower images using alcohol inks and The Ton’s floral stamps are just right for this technique!  For today’s cards I used Peony Duo and Coming Up Dahlias sets.

Let’s get started!

To create my first card I started by coloring a Yupo panel using Copic refills R22, RV25 and YR04. I stamped the peonies from Peony Duo on Yupo panel, before I colored the panel, to see where the colors should go. I left the stamps stuck on the MISTI to gold heat emboss the image, after the Copic colors were dry. After heat embossing I cut the peonies using coordinating dies and set them aside.

I did watercolor wash on a mixed media paper panel in Cerulean Blue and stamped the solid leaves from Large Peony 5 onto the panel in Soft Garden and Bright Fern while the watercolor wash was still wet. I splattered some gold ink on it.  After the panel was dry I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it on a cardbase. I then placed the peonies on it using some foam adhesives

The sentiment is from Peony Duo and Coming Up Dahlias sets. I white heat embossed two sentiments on black, added thin strip of Adhesive Foil paper Gold underneath the black strips and foam mounted them onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold and Glass Slippers sequins.

My second card is almost an one layer card.

I gold heat embossed the Coming Up Dahlias on an alcohol ink cardstock and colored the image using alcohol inks. I applied the colors directly from the bottle on large areas and colored the small areas using a micro applicator. The colors I used are Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Valencia, Limeade and Botanical. I splattered some gold mixative on it and let the panel dry.

I then dry embossed the panel using the coordinating die. The sentiment is from Peony Laurel set. I gold heat embossed it on a strip of vellum and added it on the colored panel. I colored the sentiment using a white glaze pen. I like the opaque white on the sentiment! It is a little bit raised and shines in real life 🙂 ! I added two Glass Slippers sequins to finish off the card.

That’s it from me today! Hope I was able to inspire you with my cards!
