LOVE trio

Hello and happy Monday everyone! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a card trio in the same layout. It has started with one card design idea, then it turned into a card duo in my mind, but while I was making the cards, I decided to add one more 🙂 ! You’ll understand the way of my thought, if you look at the cards 😀 .

TT0113 all 1 WM

The main idea of the design is to split the panel in two by a large sentiment die cut. I used Brushed Love die to achieve the design, as the Valentine’s day is coming ❤ !  I wanted a floral background with smaller flowers, so I chose Folk Art Florals cling stamp. I white heat embossed it on a Canson watercolor paper panel and loosely colored it using Color Burst in Cerulean Blue, Peony and Orchid. I added a bit of color to the flowers for more definition. After the panel was dry, I cut it using Brushed Love die. Actually I wanted to switch the bottom part with a white panel but the sentiment was camouflaging too much. So I decided to make another panel to combine with the floral element. I ink blended an A2 sized Neenah solar white paper panel in Soft Garnet, Plum Wine and Azurite and adhered transparent glitter foil on it. I cut the panel in the same way like the floral panel using Brushed Love die. I made one more panel in white, also cut with Brushed Love die.

Now it’s time to assemble the cards. I mixed up the three elements to get three different designs. For the small sentiment part I used Brushed Love stamp set.

TT0113 3 2 WM

TT0113 3 4 WM

For the first one I foam mounted the top part of the floral panel and the glitter sentiment die cut on a white cardbase. The sentiment was stamped in an ombre fashion using Plum Wine , Azurite and Deep Sapphire. I added a thin strip of transparent glitter paper on the bottom. Some Glass Slippers round confetti were scattered and the card was finished.

Tt0113 2 2 WM

Tt0113 2 3 WM

The second one has the top part of the glitter panel, white sentiment die cut and the bottom part of the floral panel. I cut the Brushed Love from pink fun foam and raised the sentiment die cut using it. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of purple cardstock. I added three clear dew drops to finish off the card.

Tt0113 1 2 WM

On the last one I adhered the glittery bottom part flat on a white cardbase and raised the floral sentiment die cut on a white fun foam. I added white heat embossed “sending”  and three clear dew drops to the card.

TT0113 1 4 WM

That’s it from me today! It was a card design which is relatively quick and easy to make. I hope I was able to inspire you with my cards!

Have a wonderful and crafty week, friends!!!

Merry Christmas!

Hello and Happy Monday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here sharing a Christmas card today. I’ve made this card using some Fall colors to try something different :)!

TT1223 1 WM

I started off by gold heat embossing the gift boxes from Holiday Trio stamp set. I colored the three boxes in Olive Jade, Harvest Moon from Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and a yellow Wink of Stella pen. I also colored the bows in the same colors like the boxes very lightly.

TT1223 5 WM

I masked the bows and stamped small images from Folk Art Christmas Tree stamp set on the gift wrap. I stamped a branch in Everglade Moss on the green box, a small poinsettia on the orange box in Peach Blossom and holly leaves on the yellow box in Soft Garden. I fussy cut the Holiday Trio image and set it aside.

TT1223 2 WM

To create the background I heat embossed the Christmas Sweater set on a cream shimmer cardstock in a white pearl embossing powder. I ink blended the bottom of the panel in Peach Blossom and Everglade Moss and cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle die. I added a strip of gold glitter paper on the panel and foam mounted it on a cream cardbase. I then adhered the gift boxes on it using some foam adhesives.

Tt1223 4 WM

The sentiment from Holiday Trio stamp set was gold heat embossed on a strip of white cardstock. I stamped the small poinsettias from Folk Art Christmas Tree set in Peach Blossom and the holly leaves in Everglade Moss and Soft Garden on a piece of white cardstock, fussy cut them all and added them to the center of the bows. I finished off the card with small red hearts from Sugar Cookie Couture Mix which I added to the small images on the bows, and some Medallion Gold sequins.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Wishing you all a blessed holiday season!

Transformation Hummingbird in two ways

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring Transformation Hummingbird stamp set. I tried to make two cards in the same layout and colors. I used two coloring mediums to see how different they look.

On the first card I colored the Transformation Hummingbird using alcohol ink. Some of you asked me to make a video tutorial of alcohol ink coloring. I’ll try to make a video next year 🙂 . I’ve once posted here a coloring process video using alcohol ink. If you want to watch it, click here!

TT1218 1 WM

I heat embossed the hummingbird in Rose Gold embossing powder on an alcohol ink cardstock. Then I colored it by dropping the alcohol ink and tilting the paper. For small areas I used a micro applicator. The colors I used are: Purple Twilight, Turquoise, Limeade for the hummingbird , Shell Pink, Amethyst for the morning glory flowers, Aqua, Turquoise, Limeade for the leaves.

TT1218 4 WM

In the background I colored only the bottom part using Purple Twilight and Silver Mixative. I used lots of rubbing alcohol to blend  and brighten the colors. After the coloring was done I cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle die.

I adhered Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy fine Silver on the four sides of a gray cardstock and foam mounted the colored panel on it. The sentiment was cut from Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy fine Silver and three more times from white cardstock. I stacked them together and added it to the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

TT1218 2 WM

The second hummingbird was watercolored.

TT1218 2 1 wM

I stamped the Transformation Hummingbird on a watercolor paper in Noir and clear heat embossed the image. I colored the hummingbird and morning glory flowers using Color Burst powder. The coral morning glories were colored in Duochrome Hibiscus watercolor. I colored the background in purple and silver and let the panel dry.

Tt1218 2 5 WM

I cut the panel slightly tilted using a Double Stitched Rectangle die . I ink blended Iris Blooms on the outer frame. The center piece was glued flat on a white cardbase and the frame was foam mounted.  The die cut sentiment was created in the same way like the first card. The finishing touch for this card was some clear dew drops.

TT1218 2 2 wM

It was so much fun to color this gorgeous hummingbird with different mediums. I hope you’ll give this a try 🙂 !

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

Have a wonderful day!

Alcohol Ink Coloring – Sweet Bouquet

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card featuring Sweet Bouquet stamp set. As you may know, I love coloring flowers.  The beautiful floral stamps by The Ton are super to color, as they have oft large flower images in the cluster.

For today’s post I colored the floral cluster from Sweet Bouquet stamp set using alcohol ink.

TT1211 1 WM

I stamped the image on an alcohol ink cardstock panel in a light ink to created the background. The stamped image worked as a guide for me while I added alcohol inks on the panel. First I sprayed lots of rubbing alcohol on the panel and dropped Shell Pink and Aqua alcohol ink on it and blended them by blowing using a marker spritzer tool. I repeated the process till I was happy with the result.

TT1211 2 WM

After the background was dry I gold heat embossed the Sweet Bouquet on it. I then colored the image by dropping the ink and moving the panel. Small areas were colored using a micro applicator. I used Amethyst, Purple Twilight, Flamingo and Shell pink for the large flowers. Amethyst, Turquoise for the small flowers and Citrus and Limeade to color the leaves. After the colored panel was completely dry, I splattered lots of Gold Mixative on the whole panel and let it dry.

TT1211 4 WM

I cut the colored panel with a Double Stitched Rectangle die.  I chose a navy cardbase and foam mounted the colored panel slightly tilted on it and cut off the excessive parts over the sides. The sentiment was cut using Hello word die four times from the same navy cardstock I used for the cardbase. I gold heat embossed one of the word die cuts partially and stacked all four die cuts together.  I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT1211 3 WM

Hope I could brighten your day a bit with my spring-y card 🙂 ! I love the vibrant colors of the alcohol ink!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Wishing you a crafty day!

Hugs,

TaeEun

Morning Glories

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to The Ton’s friends in the US! Hope you’re having a wonderful time with your family! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring our new morning glory stamps, Coming Up Morning Glories and Morning Glory Greetings! And of course one of them is a Thanksgiving card 🙂 !

My Thanksgiving card is showing Coming Up Morning Glories.

TT1128 2 1 WM

I stamped and gold heat embossed Coming Up Morning Glories two times to make the floral cluster to fill about three quarters of my card panel. I colored the morning glories in Peony Color Burst and the leaves in various green shades.

TT1128 2 5 WM

The background was colored in yellow green and brown. I added lots of splatters in the colors I used to color and also in opaque white ink on the panel and let it dry.

To add some interest to my card I created a frame using two largest Double Stitched Rectangle dies and ink blended on the frame in Ballet Slippers.

TT1128 2 2 WM

I glued the central rectangle of the colored panel on a white cardbase and added the frame using some foam adhesives to the card. The sentiment is from Autumn Foliage stamp set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of kraft cardstock, cut one end in a fish tail and added it to the card. I finished off the card with a few clear Dew Drops.

TT1128 2 3 WM

To make the next card I used the coordinating cut files for Coming Up Morning Glories and Morning Glory Greetings.

TT1128 1 1 WM

I added two Coming Up Morning Glories cut files and two Morning Glory Greetings cut files to my Cricut workspace and placed them in a floral frame and welded them before cutting it from some heavyweight white cardstock.

TT1128 1 5 WM

I then stamped Coming Up Morning Glories and Morning Glory Greetings on the floral frame in Caviar Hybrid ink. My actual plan was to color the morning glories using Copic markers but the floral frame stamped in simple black on a black cardbase looked great for me. So I decided to go as it is and add a bit of gold to it.

I colored the center of the flowers in gold watercolor and splattered the gold ink all over the image and also on a black cardbase.

TT1128 1 3 WMx

The sentiment is from Coming Up Morning Glories set. I white and gold heat embossed it directly on the black cardbase.

The morning glory frame was adhered on the cardbase using some foam tapes. Medallion Gold sequins were my finishing touch for this card!

TT1128 1 4 WM

I hope I was able to inspire you with my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving day!

Hugs,

Pink Butterflies

Hello everyone! Hope the week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring some of our butterfly stamps.

Did you know that there is no real pink butterflies in the nature? I realized it recently as I decided to make the butterflies for my cards pink. I was curious and googled. hmmm.. but why not? Nothing is impossible in cardmaking 🙂 !

For my first card I used Sunny Folk Garden stamp set which includes some whimsical butterflies and layering florals. I added also a frame made using the Garden Foliage Coverplate SVG cut file.

TT1028 1 1 WM

I cut the Garden Foliage Coverplate three times from heavy weight white cardstock and glued them together to add dimension. I set it aside and started to make the main panel. I stamped the layered flowers from Sunny Folk Garden stamp set in Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink and the leaves in Caribbean Turquoise. I stamped the floral cluster on the bottom and left border of the panel. I then ink blended Caribbean Turquoise on the bottom of the panel and Lemon Drop on the top of the panel.

TT1028 1 CU2 WM

I stamped one butterfly in Lemon Drop and filled it with the patterns in Arctic Sky and Caribbean Turquoise. I fussy cut the butterfly and glued it on the main panel as shown in the picture. I also stamped another butterfly in Hollywood Star and heat embossed the inner pattern in Rose Gold. I cut the butterfly and set it aside.

TT1028 1 CU1 WM

I adhered the main panel on a white cardbase and added the Garden Foliage Coverplate to it. The sentiment is from Transformation set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of white cardstock , ink blended it in Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink and cut it in a banner.

I adhered the pink butterfly next to the sentiment and finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers sequins.

TT1028 1 3 WM

The second card is featuring our washi tapes and butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set.

TT1028 2 1 wM

I started off by making the background panel using Pink Peonies washi tape. I adhered it on a white cardstock panel and added white gesso on the center of it. I then stamped the “hugs” in Hollywood Star using Brushed Hugs stamp set. I heat embossed the upper half of the letters in Rose Gold. I cut it using the coordinating die and set it aside.

TT1028 2 CU1 WM

I cut the small floral elements from the Pink Peonies washi tape and wildflowers washi tape which I adhered on some white cardstock. The little butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set were heat embossed in Rose Gold and then ink blended in Soft Garnet.  I cut them using the coordinating dies (now we have the coordinating cut files in the shop!).

TT1028 2 CU2 WM

I cut the panel with the Pink Peonies washi tape using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on a pink cardbase. I foam mounted the words and arranged the flowers and butterflies as shown in the picture. I finished off the card with a few clear dew drops.

TT1028 2 3 WM

I like the texture which the white gesso adds to the background. It also toned down the pattern in the background!

That’s it from my side today! I hope you enjoyed a little break from making holiday cards  🙂 !

Wishing you all a happy and crafty week!

Red or Blue ?

Hello and happy Monday, everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start!  It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of holiday cards made using Loose Poinsettias stamp set.  I’ve made one in red and the other one in blue-purple!

Here is my first card which is the red version.

TT1021 1 1 WM

I started off by gold heat embossing five poinsettias in two sizes from Loose Poinsettias stamp set on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I also gold heat embossed the leaf images several times. I colored the poinsettias and leaves using Color Burst powders. I used Alizarin Crimson, Merlot and Orange for the flowers. The leaves were colored in yellow brown using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors.

I fussy cut all the images and set them aside. You can use also the coordinating cut files.

TT1021 1 3 WMx

To create the background I first gold heat embossed the sentiment from Poinsettia Wreath set on the center of a white cardbase. I then ink blended Lipstick Red on the cardbase leaving the center of it white. I splattered white opaque ink on it and let it dry.

Tt1021 1 CU2 WMx

I placed the red poinsettias and leaves on the cardbase making a floral frame as shown in the picture. The brown leaves were glued flat and the red poinsettias were mounted using some foam adhesives for some dimension. I then splattered opaque white ink on the poinsettias.  I know the red colored poinsettias are actually leaves but I think we may call them flowers 🙂 . I finished off the card by adding three clear dew drops.

TT1021 1 4 WM

And this is the blue holiday card I want to share with you.

TT1021 2 1 WM

Like the first card I started here also by heat embossing the poinsettias, but this time in silver. I colored the poinsettias in Cerulean Blue and Orchid Color Burst and the leaves and berries in silver. I fussy cut them all.

Tt1021 2 CU1 WM new

To create the background I used Blizzard Hugs stamp set. I heat embossed three snowflake images on a watercolor paper panel in white pearl. I ink blended the panel in Cali Blue and Cobalt Breeze starting from the two diagonal corners towards the center.

Tt1021 2 2 WM

I arranged the poinsettias and the berries as shown in the picture. The large poinsettia was foam mounted and the other images were adhered flat on the front panel. The sentiment from Poinsettia Wreath set was stamped in Grape Crush.  I added a few Light Blue Topaz sparkling clear sequins to the card and the card was finished!

TT1021 2 4-3

 

That was my two cards! Which one do you like more, red or blue 🙂 ? To me the red one is more attractive ❤ . But it could be the layout not the color which I like more 😉 .

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

Hugs,

Watercolored Poinsettia Wreath

Hello and happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card. Our Fall 2019 Release includes five gorgeous holiday stamp designs. I’m using one of them called, Poinsettia Wreath! Surely you’ve seen beautiful inspirations using this stamp set already. For today’s inspiration card I did no-line coloring.

TT1007 1 WM

I started by stamping the Poinsettia Wreath in a light colored ink on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I then started watercoloring the poinsettias. For the red part of the poinsettias I used only one color; Cadmium red. I added different shades by coloring in layers.

TT1007 CU2 WM

I wanted to tone down the green color. So I added a bit of brown to sap green. The holy leaves were colored in Hooker’s green and purple. I also colored the inside of the wreath in purple and added white splatters to it.

TT1007 2 WM

After the panel was dry, I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle dies and foam mounted it on a kraft cardbase.

TT1007 CU1 WM

The sentiment was cut using Holiday word dies from adhesive Gold Foil paper and three times more from some white cardstock. I stacked them together and added it onto the card. The “Christmas” is from Holiday Trio set. I stamped it in Grape Crush on a strip of white cardstock and adhered it underneath the die cut “merry”.

TT1007 3 WM

There are so many things to learn in watercoloring and the big image of Poinsettia Wreath is great for practicing watercoloring! It took me about 4 hours to color, but it was worth it! Hope you like my card too!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Transformation Shaker

Hello, everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a shaker card made using Transformation butterfly and the coordinating cut file. However, there are coordinating dies available for preorder here. Please be sure to double check the ship date field on the drop down menu for approximate shipping date.

screen_shot_2019-09-19_at_7.23.24_pm_1024x1024

This butterfly is so gorgeous and is loved by many crafters! It’s such a dreamy image and the stamp set has some awesome encouraging sentiments! I love them!

I used the coordinating cut file to cut the shaker window, but Effie recently released the coordinating die for which you can place a preorder.

TT0930 1 WM

I started off by making the front shaker window panel using coordinating cut file on Cricut design space. I cut out the butterfly from an A2 sized rectangle and welded it with a rectangle frame. I then cut it from a white woodgrain cardstock.

TT0930 CU1 WMx

On the MISTI I placed the Transformation stamp on a watercolor paper panel aligning it with the shaker window. I heat embossed the image in Rose Gold embossing powder.  I colored the flowers and the butterfly wing in Peony, Lemon Yellow and Orange Color Burst.

TT0930 CU3 WM

I chose Flamenco Sunset and Pink Blossoms Couture Mixes to fill the shaker. I adhered some sequins on the image before I assembled the shaker together. Unfortunately I forgot to apply anti-static powder on the side of the foam tape wall, so many of the sequins are stuck there now. I have to make shaker cards more often to remember that 🙂 !

I stamped the sentiment on the front panel in Noir and the card was finished!

TT0930 2 WM

That’s it for today! I hope I was able to inspire you with my card!

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments in advance!

Have a crafty day!

Coral, Gold and Navy

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with three Thanksgiving cards I made using stamp sets in Folk Art print style from our Fall 2019 Release : Autumn Sweater, Oak Leaf Print and Thanksgiving Block. For today’s cards I chose a color combination which includes traditional Fall colors like gold and brown along with Navy and coral. I was inspired by some Folk Art Print images I found in Pinterest.

The first card is showcasing Thanksgiving Block clear stamp set. The block image is 3.75″ x 5″ leaving a neat border on a A2 panel.

TT0918 1 1 WM

I stamped Thanksgiving Block on a white A2 sized cardstock. I stamped the upper and lower 1/3 in True Navy and the middle part in gold. It was already beautiful without any additional coloring but I decided to go with my colored pencils. I colored the flowers and leaves in coral, navy, light blue and brown and some leaves using a gold gel pen.

TT0918 1 CU WM

To add a bit of shine I covered the images with a clear glitter pen and added white Pico embellisher on the tiny berries. Lastly I mounted the panel on a navy cardbase and the card was finished!

TT0918 1 3 WM

The second card is showing the Oak Leaf Print stamp set.

TT0918 2 1 WM

I started off by stamping the big folk art oak leaf on a white cardstock in Aspen Cocoa, Found Topaz, Warm Hazelnut, Coralline Hybrid and Peach Blossom in an ombre fashion. I also heat embossed the bottom part in a metallic copper EP.

TT0918 2 CU1 WM

To create the cut out front panel I used the coordinating cutting file for Oak Leaf Print stamp set. I cut it from some white cardstock, ink blended the lower half in Peach Blossom and the upper half in Warm Hazelnut, and cut the panel to a A2 sized one using a Double Stitched Rectangle die.

TT0918 2 CU2 WM

I adhered the panel with the oak leaf on a white cardbase and foam mounted the front panel. The sentiments are from Oak Leaf Print and Thanksgiving Block set. I white heat embossed them on some navy cardstock, cut them in strips and added them to the card. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT0918 2 3 WM

The last card for today is featuring Autumn Sweater stamp set.

TT0918 3 1 WM

First I made the background panel. I pulled out an alcohol ink cardstock panel and colored it using Hazelnut, Mountain Rose, Butterscotch, Sunshine yellow alcohol inks and Gold Mixative. I used lots of rubbing alcohol to blend the colors smoothly.

TT0918 3 CU1 WM NEW

After the panel was completely dry, I white heat embossed the Autumn Sweater stamp on it. I brushed off the embossing powder from the white area of the panel before heat setting as I wanted to leave the area clean.

TT0918 3 CU2 WM NEW

To follow the color scheme I chose for today’s cards, I ink blended the branches I cut using a die from Petal Cut Peonies Standalone die set which is now retired. I used True Navy, Arctic Sky and some gold ink.

The sentiment is from Thankful Cornucopia set. I white heat embossed the banner and the sentiment on some navy cardstock and cut it using the coordinating die.

I adhered the background panel on a white cardbase, added a nest of golden thread and arranged the branches on it as shown in the picture. I then foam mounted the sentiment banner. I scattered some Medallion Gold sequins again to finish off the card.

TT0918 3 3 WM

How do you think about the untraditional color combination for Fall? I love the fresh impact that the added navy gives to the Fall colors.

Hope I could inspire you with my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a crafty day!

Hugs,

TaeEun
