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!

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 🙂 !
Have a happy day!

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!

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!

Tis The Season

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing well and having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday shaker card to inspire you for some last minute cards for the season 🙂 .

I paired the Holiday Border cling stamp with a poinsettia arrangement I made using Poinsesttia Wishes , Berry Bits and Winter Foliage grouped layering stamp sets. 

I white heat embossed the Holiday Border cling stamp on a watercolor paper panel. I ink blended it in Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms, Plum Wine, Caribbean Turquoise, Azurite and Deep Sapphire. I kept the center of the panel white making the border of the panel darker.  I cut the panel with the holiday border die and set it aside. 

The ink colors I used for the poinsettias and other holiday elements are below.

I stamped them and cut them using the coordinating dies. I arranged the poinsettia cluster and secured it with a sheet of Press’N Seal.

I made the shaker part with the front panel by adhering a clear acetate sheet on the back of it and adding foam tapes. As the shaker elements I used Midnight Frost Couture Mix. After the shaker was finished I added the poinsettia arrangement to the card. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Holiday set. I gold heat embossed the scripty part and stamped the rest in Noir.

That’s it from me for today! Hope you like my holiday shaker card 🙂 and got some inspiration for your own holiday card stash!

Have a crafty day!

Hugs,

Be Merry

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card in traditional red with lots of sparkle!  I mainly used The Ton’s new die sets for this card! Without further ado, let’s take a look at my card :)!

I started by die cutting the anemone flowers using the Trio Anemone Cluster Layering dies. I cut the base layer and the second layer from heavyweight white cardstock and the outline layer from bright silver glitter cardstock. I layered them all and set them aside. I also cut the Pine Sprigs from the same white and bright silver glitter cardstock. 

To create the background I stamped Haute Stripes cling background stamp tilted on a piece of white cardstock in Lipstick Red and adhered it on a white cardbase. To add some festive border to the card I cut the two snowflake patterned borders from white cardstock using Holiday Border die set. I matted them with some white glitter paper and foam mounted them on both sides of the card. I then arranged the anemone flowers and Pine Sprigs as shown in the picture. 

The sentiment was cut using the Many Sentiments Holiday die set. I cut one red and three white sentiments for some dimension.  I finished off the card with three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

I love how this card turned out. I think the anemone flowers work perfectly as holiday florals with the help of holiday themed dies 🙂 !

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

Just for You

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!  Hope you’re all doing well!  It’s TaeEun here today with a fresh floral card! I used some of the new Grouped Fresh floral stamps and Holiday Coffee dies! Hope my card can brighten your day! 

I started off by cutting the Holiday Coffee from some heavyweight white cardstock. I didn’t use the cream die, instead I used the cap and also cut the straw ( candy cane ).

I cut the body of the cup from some cardstock on which I adhered the Wildflowers washi tape. The border of the cap and the second layer of the straw were ink blended in Hollywood Star. I then assembled the Holiday Coffee cup together and set it aside.

For the background I colored a Canson mixed media paper panel in Peony, Orchid and Cerulean Blue Color Burst and cut it using the largest die from the Scalloped Nested A2 die set. I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and added the cup using some foam tape.

The Grouped Fresh Peonies and Grouped Fresh Dahlias were stamped and cut using the coordinating dies. The colors I used are listed below.

I also cut some leaves using Leafy Bits Coverplate die from some white cardstock and arranged my bouquet as shown in the picture. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Birthday stamp set. I stamped “you” in Azurite and the rest in Noir and cut it using the coordinating coverplate die

I finished off the card  with a few Glass Slippers sequins. 

It’s great to see that the splash of bright colors in the background gives the card a cheerful look! Hope you enjoyed looking my card!

Thank you for stopping by!

Have a great weekend!

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!

Holiday card with golden accents

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far ! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a holiday card I made using some of our new dies from October Release and holiday themed grouped layering stamp sets. 

I started by making the golden panel which was dry embossed using the Holiday Border Dies. The gold mirror cardstock looked like real metal after dry embossing! 

I then cut the letters for merry using the Bold Alphas Lower dies from some heavyweight white cardstock and heat embossed the lower 1/3 of them in gold. 

To embellish my card with some christmas-y bouquets I used some berries and winter foliage from Winter Foliage, Berry Branches, Berry Bits and Pine Cones grouped layering stamp sets. 

The leaves were stamped in Soft GardenBright Fern, Caribbean Turquoise and Ocean Teal and the berries were stamped in Lipstick Red and Pink Derby. For the Pine Cone I used the Cocoa collection

I cut the Pine Sprigs from some white cardstock using the Pine Sprig die and ink blended them in Soft GardenBright Fern, Caribbean Turquoise and Basil Mojito

I then started assembling the card. First I arranged the pine sprig and pine cone and berry bits on the top part of a beige cardbase and foam mounted the golden panel on the lower half of the cardbase. I aligned the letters and added them to the card using foam tape. I then added the holiday bouquet on the lower right corner and the small leafy embellishment on the letter “m”. I added red rhinestones to the bouquet.  

The sentiment is from Winter Foliage stamp set. I white heat embossed the “& BRIGHT” on a piece of green cardstock and inked  it with Deep Emerald to get an ombre strip. 

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