Vivid Peonies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re all doing well! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral Thank You card featuring one of our new Grouped Layering stamp sets, Vivid Peonies. I added a few small flowers from Blossom Branches set and leaves from Bountiful Leaves set to my bouquet! 

The colors I used for the flowers and leaves are listed below. I used mostly our new colors! 

Vivid Peonies

Blossom Branches

Bountiful Leaves: Light Oat, Matcha, and Spring Salad

I cut all the flowers and leaves using the coordinating dies and set them aside. 

To create the background I first cut the oval frames from a heavyweight white cardstock using the Double Pierced Oval Coverplate die. I ink blended each oval frame in yellow (Lemon Drop and Amber Citrine), pink (Bubblegum) or green (Matcha) and placed them on a white cardbase adhering them alternately flat and with foam tape to add some interest. 

Next I arranged the flowers and leaves as shown in the picture. I also cut some branches from white cardstock using Leafy Bits coverplate die and added some of them to my floral cluster. 

The sentiment is from Vivid Peonies set. I finished off the card by scattering a few Glass Slippers sequins. 

Thank you so much for looking!  Hope I was able to inspire you with my card today!

Have a beautiful and crafty day!

Mums Close Up

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a card featuring Mums CloseUp cling stamp! I CASEd one of my cards I posted here earlier 🙂 . If your Mojo is down CASEing your own project is a great way to get your groove back !

For the previous card I did no line watercoloring, this time I heat embossed the Mums CloseUp image in rose gold and watercolored the petals. 

I heat embossed the Mums Close Up in rose gold on a Canson watercolor paper panel and watercolored it in pink and purple. I built up the watercolor layers making the base of the petals darker.  After the coloring of the flower was done I colored the background in Perylene violet and dark blue.

After the panel was dry I cut it with the second largest die from the Rectangle A2 Nested Dies set and cut the shape of the THANKS sentiment from the center of the colored panel using the Jumbo Sentiments coordinating die.

Next I foam mounted the colored panel on a white cardbase and placed the sentiment shape with two layers of foam tape. 

The sentiment from the Jumbo Sentiments set was then heat embossed in rose gold on some vellum and cut using the coordinating die. I adhered the vellum on the raised sentiment shape of the card front. The small sentiment from the same stamp set was heat embossed in white on black.  I fussy cut it and added it to the card. To finish off I scattered a few Glass Slippers sequins

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed looking my card and got some inspiration for your upcoming project!  

Have a great weekend!

Delightful Wildflowers

Hello and happy Friday everyone! Hope you’re doing well! It’s TaeEun here today with a watercolored floral birthday card! I used the berry branches from the Dove Friends set for my background and arranged the flowers from the Delightful Wildflowers set on it. 

I started off by stamping the berry branches from the Dove Friends and the Delightful Wildflowers on some watercolor paper in Soft Cream to do no line coloring. I stamped the branches two times on a A2 sized Mixed Media paper panel to fill the half of it.

For an airy and transparent look I colored the first layer very lightly and added the second layer where I needed darker shade. 

After the coloring was done I cut the background panel using the A2 Quilted coverplate die for some texture and cut the flowers using the Delightful Wildflowers coordinating dies

I ink blended the bottom right corner of the background panel in Iris Blooms and Periwinkle which are close to the color of the berries and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. The flowers are arranged on that as shown in the picture using foam tape. 

For the sentiment I gold heat embossed the Banner of the Many Banners set and stamped the sentiment from the same set on it in Noir. I fussy cut it but you can use the coordinating die

Some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots are my finishing touch for my floral card! 

I had a therapeutic time while watercoloring the beautiful images! Hope you enjoyed looking my card too! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful weekend!

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!

The flowers are from Regal Rose, Rose Labels stamp sets and the leaves are from Summer Rose and Eucalyptus sets. The small flowers are from Wildflower Bits set.

They were all cut using the coordinating die. I arranged the bouquet as shown in the picture and secured it with a sheet of Press’n Seal and set it aside.

The Balloon Alphas were stamped in Iris Blooms and Grape Crush and cut with the coordinating die. I adhered silver thread on the back of the letters and added the letters to the card using foam tape. 

The bouquet was then added using foam tape on the circular background panel. The sentiment is from OMG Sentiments set. I stamped it in Violet Fringe on a strip of white cardstock and matted it with a purple piece of cardstock before I added it to the card.  To finish off I scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti on the card!

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. 🙂 ! 

Have a crafty day!
