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! 


Twist & Pop Holiday Card

Hello everyone!  Hope you’re all doing well!  It’s TaeEun here today with a twist & pop holiday card. I used our new dies to create my scene. 

Let’s start with the card front. 

I started off by creating the background. I colored a watercolor paper panel in purple teal, blue and a bit of black using Gansai Tambi watercolor. After the panel was dry I splattered white opaque ink all over the panel. The snow covered hills was fussy cut from some white cardstock. I ink blended a bit of Cali blue on the hills to show the shadow. 

I cut the pine trees using the Pine Tree coverplate die and stamped them with the Mini Pine Tree stamp in Caribbean Turquoise. I adhered the background panel on a white cardbase. And added the hills and pine trees on it using some foam tape. Crystal Stickles was added to make the hills and trees sparkle. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Holiday stamp set. I added the Santa’s Sleigh on the teal part of the sky and one red rhinestone on the Rudolph’s nose. 

I cut the base part of the Twist & Pop mechanism from heavyweight white cardstock and adhered it in the inside of the card.  The pop-up panel was cut from a watercolored panel which I colored in the same colors like the front panel.  I splattered white ink on it and white heat embossed the sentiment from Mini Pine Tree stamp set. I cut the hills,  Pine Trees and Deers from some white cardstock. I ink blended the deers in Warm Hazelnut. I created the scene by adhering the elements as shown in the picture. 

This was my second twist & pop card. I shared another twist and pop holiday card for the latest release on my blog. I don’t make interactive cards that often but it was fun to make the twist and pop cards 🙂 ! Below is a short video showing the cards in action!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!
