Bonny Blooms

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card in a semi-CAS look 🙂 . 
I created a floral background using Bonny Blooms set and raised the Jumbo sentiment in the center of it as a main focal element. 

I started by stamping the rose and anemone part of the Bonny Blooms floral cluster on a watercolor paper panel. I then added the peony to the right upper corner of the panel. I stamped the images in Soft Cream to do no line coloring. I watercolored the floral cluster in soft and bright colors. I left the background uncolored for a clean look. 

At first I thought about heat embossing the Jumbo Sentiment directly on the colored panel to cut and raise it. But I didn’t have the courage to do that. So I took a detour by using a vellum piece. I heat embossed the Jumbo sentiment on the vellum and cut it using the coordinating die. I also cut the same shape from the center of the colored panel and from a white fun foam. 

I adhered the negative piece of the panel flat on a cardbase and placed the fun foam and the die cut part of the colored panel on it. Then I adhered the heat embossed sentiment on vellum on it. The thin sentiment is from Many Banners set. I stamped it in Grape Crush and added it to the center of the sentiment panel using foam tape. I scattered some Glass Slippers sequins and my card was finished! 

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

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mother’s Day Card

Hi there! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here with a Mother’s Day card in a bold color combo, navy and pink! 

I used Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies for the background and placed a little bouquet of carnations on it. For the bouquet I used the outline stamp of the Grouped Fresh Carnations set. The carnations represent the purity of a mother’s love, perfect for a Mother’s Day card!

I started off by gold heat embossing the Carnations from Grouped Fresh Carnations set on a watercolor paper and watercolored them. As the image was heat embossed the watercoloring was so easy and quick. After the flowers were dry I cut them using the Coordinating die and set them aside. The bow was from Christmas Bows grouped layering stamp set. It was stamped in Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink and Pink Derby and cut with the coordinating die.

Before I cut the Gingham Plaid Layering panels I made an ombre blue (dark blue to white) watercolored panel and let it dry. I cut the first layer of the Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies from the watercolored panel and the second and third layer from some heavyweight white cardstock. I ink blended the two white die cut layers in Italian Denim, Miami Cool and Cobalt Breeze to match with the first layer. 

I then chose a navy cardbase, layered the three layers of the Gingham Plaid on it and splattered white opaque ink.

The Sentiment is from Gladiola Cheer stamp set. I heat embossed it in gold on some vellum, cut one end of it in a fishtail and adhered it on the card. I then added the carnations and the bow on the card using foam tape. To finish off I used some sequins from Midnight Frost Couture Mix and Glass Slippers.

I love the freshness which the contrast of the bright colors gives the card. Hope you like it too!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Watercolored Heartfelt Blossoms

Hello friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a watercolored floral card! The Ton has released so many beautiful floral outline stamps recently. As you might know I love coloring flowers and I was so excited about the Spring release

For today’s card I played with Heartfelt Blossoms stamp set. This is a large floral cluster with two wildflowers (they look like cosmos flowers for me) and berries. 

I stamped the image in Caviar hybrid ink which is watercolor friendly. I stamped the image a bit to the left side to have a larger blank area on the top right corner.
I then watercolored the image loosely using Cotman watercolors. I worked in a few layers to get the look I wanted. I also colored the background in the same green I used for the leaves and cerulean blue for some area. 

After the panel was dry I splattered black watercolor mainly on the background part and white opaque ink on the flower part. I let the splatters dry and cut it with the second largest die of the Rectangle A2 Nested Die set and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. 

The sentiment is also from the Heartfelt Blossoms stamp set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock. As finishing touch I added some Glass Slippers sequins.

Hope you enjoyed looking my card! Please check out the Spring Release, if you haven’t already. There are so many beautiful floral designs!

Thank you so much for looking!

Wishing you a crafty day!

Shades of Purple

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of purple cards featuring some of the new products from our Spring Release

The first card is featuring the Palm Layering stencil set and the Gingham Plaid Layering coverplate die set. The Palm Layering Stencil is a larger version of the Happy Palm image. They look both amazing in their four layers. One of my favorites from this release! 

I shared a card made using the Happy Palm stamp set on the Release Blog Hop. I used the same colors to stencil the Palm for today’s card.  For the pink part I used Ballet SlippersHollywood StarCosmopolitan pink and Pink Derby and the purple part was stenciled in Soft AmethystIris BloomsGrape Crush and Violet Fringe. I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.

For a clean background first I dry embossed a white panel using the second layer of the Gingham Plaid Layering coverplate die set. I then cut the third payer from silver glitter paper. I adhered the dry embossed panel on a white cardbase and foam mounted the silver glitter panel. Next I added the Palm image on it. The sentiment was stamped using Easy Expressions: Thanks set. The scripty part was stamped in Grape Crush and the rest in Noir. To finish off I scattered some Glass Slippers sequins.

For the second card I no line colored the Gladiola Cheer stamp image. 

I stamped the image in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and colored it using Karin brush markers. After the image was completely colored I added a bit of blue and yellow green around the flowers. Next I ink blended two diagonal corners of the panel in Grape Crush and splattered white opaque ink on the whole panel. 

I cut a rectangle frame using the Rectangle A2 Nested die set. I cut it two times from some heavyweight white cardstock, adhered them together and added it to the panel. To tuck the frame under the flower I cut the outline of the largest bloom with a Kraft knife. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Birthday set. The scripty part was stamped in Azurite and Grape Crush and the rest in Noir. I added a few Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots and the card was done. 

Thank you so much for looking! Hope you liked my purple creations 🙂 !

Have a crafty day!

Poppy Smiles

Hello, crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card which is featuring the Poppy Smiles stamp set.

I did simple and light watercoloring on the gold heat embossed floral image and matched it with a dark background.

To begin I gold heat embossed the Poppy Smiles two times on some watercolor paper. I watercolored the flowers in pink and the leaves in purple very lightly. I then colored the background around the image in Payne’s gray and cut them using the coordinating die.  

To create the dark background I watercolored a watercolor paper panel in Payne’s gray and Phthalo blue and splattered gold watercolor on it. After the panel was dry I cut it using the Quilted A2 die and adhered it flat on a white cardbase. 

The die cut flowers were then added to the card using foam tape as shown in the picture. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Birthday stamp set. I gold heat embossed the scripty part of the sentiment and stamped the rest in Noir. To add more golden accent I scattered Medallion Gold sequins. 

That’s it from me for today! I love how this card turned out. I hope you like it too 🙂 ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Coral Radiant Roses

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here with a couple of cards featuring Radiant Roses Standalone Layering Dies. I ink blended the roses in coral colors and the leaves in light brown. I love the look! I hope you’ll like them too 🙂 ! 

I started by ink blending white cardstock before die cutting. The base layer of the roses was ink blended in Rose Quartz and Peach Blossom, the second layer in Peach Blossom and the third layer in Peach Blossom and Coralline hybrid ink. For the leaves I used Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz
I die cut all the layers of the Radiant Roses and added a bit of inks on the die cut pieces to make them slightly darker. I then assembled the flowers and leaves and set them aside. 

For the first card I cut a white panel using the Quilted A2 die and cut one side of it with a die from the Slimline Border die set. I heat embossed the scalloped border of the panel in rose gold and foam mounted the panel on a beige cardbase. 

I arranged the roses on the white panel using foam tape. The sentiment from Ditsy Bits stamp set was white heat embossed on a strip of cardstock on which I ink blended Found Topaz. I matted the strip with another strip of cardstock that I heat embossed in rose gold. 
To finish off I scattered some sequins from Raspberry Sparkle and Cinderella’s Ride Couture Mixes.

For the second card I ink blended a white panel in Rose Quartz, Peach Blossom and Warm Hazelnut and splattered light brown watercolor on it. I cut the panel with a die from the Scalloped A2 Nested Die set and heat embossed the sentiment from the Ditsy Bits set in rose gold on it before I foam mounted it on a beige cardbase. 

I added the largest rose from the  Radiant Roses Standalone Layering Dies along with some leaves and two buds to the card. To finish off I used the Raspberry Sparkle and Cinderella’s Ride Couture Mixes here as well.

Thank you so much for looking! Hope I was able to inspire you with my coral roses. 🙂 !

Ribbons General Sentiments

Hello crafty friends! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of purple cards I made using some new goodies from our 6th Anniversary Release focusing on the Ribbons General set. This grouped layering stamp set stamps six beautiful sentiments in two shades which can be cut with the coordinating die with only one pass through your die cutting machine! 

The first card is also showing the Quilted A2 die from the 6th Anniversary Release.

To arrange my floral cluster I used the Grouped Fresh Peonies stamp set and Fancy Foliage set. I stamped the peony flowers in Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms and Grape Crush and the leaves in Soft Garden and Deep Emerald. I also stamped some gray Leaves from Fancy Foliage set in Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. I cut them all using the coordinating dies and set them aside. 

To create the background I watercolored a Canson mixed media panel in purple and cut it using the Quilted A2 die die and Scalloped Nested A2 die.  I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and added the floral arrangement on it. The Ribbons General set was stamped in Iris Blooms and Violet Fringe and cut using the coordinating die. Some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots were my finishing touch for this card.

For the second card for today I used the beautiful Monarch Butterfly Coverplate die along with the Ribbons General sentiment. 

To begin I watercolored a panel in purple and cerulean blue using Color Burst. I cut the Monarch Butterfly Coverplate from the panel. The background was also watercolored in gold and brown. I splattered dark brown watercolor on the background panel and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. The Monarch Butterfly Coverplate panel was then added using foam tape and the sentiment on it.

I decorated the sentiment with two branches from Fancy Foliage set which were gold heat embossed and colored in the same colors I used for the butterfly! To finish off I scattered some Light Blue Topaz Sparkling Clear sequins

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

Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂 !

Round Foliage Window

Hello and Happy Friday, crafty friends! Hope you’re all doing well! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a shaker birthday card which is showcasing the Round Foliage Window Layering Dies from our 6th Anniversary Release. It’s a lovely die set including four dies; two dies cut beautiful circle windows with foliage coming from the border, one die is for a stitched circle frame and the last one is a circle die. 

I cut four pierced circles from white cardstock using Double Pierced Circle die. I cut the foliage windows from two of the circles aligning the windows. I ink blended the foliage of a die cut panel in Soft Garden and Bright Fern and one circle panel in Soft Garden, Iris Blooms and Bright Emerald for the background. I then splattered white opaque ink on both ink blended panels and set them aside to dry. I used small pink rhinestones to embellish the berries of the ink blended Foliage window panel.

Next I white heat embossed the sentiment from Ditsy Bits stamp set on the background panel and started assembling the shaker part. I foam mounted the ink blended foliage window panel and the white foliage window panel together after I adhered a clear acetate piece on the back of the window. I put the Winter Thaw Couture Mix as shaker elements on the background piece and adhered the circle panels with the shaker window on it. 

I cut a circle frame from a white shimmer cardstock using the die included in the Round Foliage Window Layering Dies set and adhered it on the circle window. 

To add a floral accent to my card I arranged a small bouquet using a flower from Floral Bits 2, a leaf from Rose of Sharon, the small flowers from Ditsy Bits and branches from Fancy Foliage set. They are all grouped layering stamp sets and cut using the coordinating dies. 

The colors I used are listed below.

Thank you so much for looking! I hope you enjoyed my card and got some inspiration for your next crafting session! 

Have a lovely day!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, crafty friends!!! Hope you’re having a great day! It’s TaeEun here with a bright and cheerful New Year’s card! I made a rainbow floral wreath using the Cascade Bits grouped layering stamp set. 

Let’s start off the new year with a bright vibe 🙂 !

I started by stamping the Cascade Bits images in rainbow colors. The ink colors I used are listed below.

After stamping I die cut them all using the coordinating die and set them aside. 

For a simple background I cut a light gray cardstock using the A2 Grid coverplate die, layered it with one more die cut piece and adhered it on a white cardbase.

I then arranged the rainbow wreath on the card as shown in the picture. Along with the die cut florals I also used a few branches which were die cut from some white cardstock using the Leafy Bits coverplate die

The sentiment was cut using Many Sentiments Holiday die set. I layered three white die cut sentiments and added black shadow layers to them. To finish off the card I scattered a few Glass Slippers sequins

Thank you so much for looking! Hope you like my rainbow New Year’s card! It was fun to make ❤ !

Wishing you all a happy and healthy year ahead!
