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! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a crafty day!

Let it Snow

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a nice week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a fun shaker card featuring Dome Snow Globe dies, Deer Coverplate die and Pine Tree coverplate die from our October Release.

I turned the Dome Snow Globe into a shaker card 🙂 !

I started off by making the snow globe. I made an alcohol inked panel in blue, light brown and green to represent the sky and the forest as background. I splattered Snow Cap Mixative on it for a snowy scene. I colored an area of the panel in dark green and heat embossed random lines on it in gold and white and cut the pine trees using Pine Tree coverplate die from it.

The white hill was cut using a large Double Pierced Oval Nested die and the deers using the Deer Coverplate die from some white cardstock.

I cut a white textured paper with a Double Pierced Rectangle die and made a window with the Dome Snow Globe die. I adhered a clear acetate sheet on the back of the panel and the frame for the snow globe cut from a beige cardstock on the front of the panel. I cut the base for the snow globe from the same beige cardstock and stamped a woodgrain pattern from Buildable Woodgrain stamp set on it in Warm Hazelnut on it.

I then assembled the shaker together. I adhered the alcohol inked background on a white cardbase and added the hill, the pine trees and the deer to it using some foam tape. I used Misty Mint Couture Mix as shaker element and foam mounted the front panel with the window on it.

The sentiment is from Poinsettia Wishes stamp set. I first cut the shadow layer for the sentiment using the Many Sentiments Holiday die set which matches with the large scripty sentiments from Poinsettia Wishes stamp set! I gold heat embossed the sentiment on the shadow die cut and added it to the card with a strip of a green glitter tape.

That’s it from me today! Hope I was able to inspire you with my card!

Wishing you all a crafty day!

Hugs,

Fall Leaves

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a Fall card! My card is featuring the Fall Leaves Layered Dies and A2 Grid coverplate die from our October 2020 Release. I also used some small bits from Cascade Bits grouped layering stamp! 

I started off by watercoloring a watercolor paper loosely in various Fall colors. After the panel was dry I cut the base layer of the Fall Leaves Layered die set from it. I love that the base layer has stitched details on the veins of the leaves!!! So pretty! I splattered gold ink on the leaves and set them aside to dry. 

The Cascade Bits was stamped in Hollywood Star/Grand Fuchsia and Red Sangria/Plum Wine. The stem was stamped in Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz. I cut the image using the coordinating die

I cut two thick paper using the A2 Grid coverplate die and adhered them together to use it as a stencil. I applied white embossing paste through the stencil on a white cardbase. I did it only partially so that I have some white space on the cardbase. I sprinkled some gold and bronze embossing powder on the paste before it was dry and heat set it. The sentiment from the Cascade Bits set was stamped in Noir on the cardbase. 

I arranged a Fall leaf bouquet with the leaves and the Cascade Bits, tied a bow using a natural twine and added a golden pearl to it. 

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

Slimline Christmas Card

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a slimline Christmas card! Are you enjoying our new slimline dies? I love the versatility ! 

My card is featuring the Slimline Dot Coverplate die. I wanted to make a snowy background for my wintery poinsettia cluster!

I started off by stamping and die cut all the floral elements using Poinsettia Wishes and Winter Foliage grouped layering stamp and die sets. 

The ink colors I used are listed below. 

To create the background I ink blended a slimline sized panel in Violet Fringe, Soft Amethyst, Cobalt Breeze and Soft Garnet. I left the bottom part white. I then cut the panel using the Slimline Dot Coverplate die and foam mounted it on a white slimline cardbase. 

I cut the white frame using the Slimline Simple Nested dies and added it to the card using some foam tape. I then arranged the poinsettias and winter foliage on it as shown in the picture. 

The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Holiday set. I gold heat embossed the scripty part and stamped the rest in Noir. I cut it using the coordinating die

What do you think of the purple-blue-pink combo for a holiday card? I like it 🙂 ! Hope you enjoyed looking my card!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

More Slimline Inspiration

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of slimline Thanks cards featuring some of our new goodies 🙂 ! Have you enjoyed our Slimline Die Release last week?  14 diverse Slimline die designs were introduced. From basic shapes to unique  Coverplate there are a variety of die sets from which you can choose! 

Without further ado, let’s take a look at my cards!

The first one is featuring Slimline Long Stripes and Short Stripes coverplate dies along with our grouped layering pumpkin stamp sets. 

I stamped and cut all the pumpkins and mixed them up to make the stack of pumpkins. The stamp sets used are  Ella PumpkinsRound PumpkinsButternut Squash and Thankful Gourds.

The ink colors I used are listed below. 

Ella Pumpkins and Round Pumpkins:  Vanilla Frosted CupcakeBeach Blondie and Amber Citrine for the lightest pumpkins / Amber CitrinePeach Blossom and Coralline hybrid for the middle shaded pumpkins / Peach BlossomCoralline hybrid and Coral Cavern for the darkest pumpkins

Butternut SquashVanilla Frosted CupcakeWarm Hazelnut and Found Topaz

Thankful GourdsSoft GardenBright FernWarm Hazelnut and Found Topaz

I also arranged the leaves and tendrils from Thankful Gourds set. I secured the leafy arrangement and the stack of pumpkins using a piece of Press’n Seal wrap and set it  aside.

To create the woven background I watercolored two Canson Mixed Media paper panel in brown and gold in an ombre fashion. I then cut one of them using the Long Stripes slimline die and the other one using the Short Stripes Slimline die. I cut the bottom end of the long striped panel and started to weave the long stripes through the short striped panel. After that I mounted the woven panel flat on a white cardbase. 

The stack of the pumpkins were added to the card using some foam tape and the leafy arrangement using liquid glue to the upper left corner of the card. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions: Thanks set which was heat embossed in Liquid Platinum and white on some black cardstock. I finished off the card with some sequins from Hot Cocoa Couture Mix

The second card is featuring Slimline Scalloped Nested dies. I was inspired by this video which Effie once has shared on our YouTube Channel. She used scraps to stamp small floral elements and made a pretty floral card using them.

I started off by gold heat embossing the small floral elements from Charmed Wildflowers set. I watercolored the images using Color Burst and cut them all using the coordinating dies

To create the pretty pink background I loosely watercolored a watercolor paper panel in Peony, Orchid and Cerulean blue Color Burst. After the panel was dry I cut it using the second largest Slimline Scalloped die. I also cut a white scalloped panel using the smallest die for my sentiment. As it was too long, I die cut one end again with the same die and heat embossed the sentiment from Poppy Wishes stamp set on it in Liquid Platinum embossing powder. 

Now I started assembling the card. The scalloped background panel was foam mounted on a baby pink cardbase and the small scalloped panel with the sentiment on it. I then arranged the floral elements as shown in the picture, some of them were added using foam tape. To finish off I scattered Glass Slippers sequins. 

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

Hi with Anemone Flowers

Hello crafty friends! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a greeting card embellished with anemone flowers!

I used the Trio Anemone Cluster Layering dies to Create the layered anemone flowers. These cluster dies cut three flowers together. So for three layers of three flowers you need to die cut only three times 🙂 !

TT0730 1 WM

I cut the trio twice from some watercolor paper to get six anemone flowers. I then watercolored the first and the second layer in yellow, orange and pink while making the second layer darker. The outline layers were cut from some white cardstock. I assembled all six flowers and set them aside.

To add the coordinating colors to the background I ink blended the border of a white cardbase in Lemon Drop, Coralline hybrid and Soft Garnet. The white frame was cut using the Double Pierced Oval Nested Dies and foam mounted on the cardbase.

TT0730 4 WM

Next I cut the letter “HI” using the Tall and Skinny Alpha Coverplate die three times from white cardstock and colored one of them in orange, yellow and pink Copic markers.  I stacked the letters together and added it to the card.

The white leaves were cut using the Leafy Bits Coverplate die from some white cardstock. I added some of the leaves on the cardbase and arranged the anemone flowers using foam tape as shown in the picture. I cut off the excessive part of the flowers except for the anemones on the top of the card. To finish off I scattered some sequins from Lemon Chiffon Sequins.

TT0730 3 WM

I love how this card turned out ! It looks so cheerful! I hope you like the card too :)!
