Peony Fields

Hello crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a pair of cards I made using the gorgeous Peony Fields cling background stamp.

I’ve created two panels in different ways and cut them to mix and match.

TT0617 1 5 WM

The first panel was created by heat embossing Peony Fields image on a shimmery cardstock panel in silver. I left the stamp in the MISTI tool and stamped the second panel. I scribbled Tombow brush markers on the stamp, sprayed water on it and stamped the image on a watercolor paper panel. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result.

TT0617 2 4

Now I have two panels with exactly the same image on them. I cut both panels using the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and then cut them along a line I drew on the back. I then switched the lower part of them and made them into two cards.

TT0617 1 CU2

I foam mounted the upper parts on light gray cardbases and adhered the lower parts flat on them. The sentiments are from Chandelier set. I white heat embossed them on gray cardstock. I cut the sentiments in strips and added them onto the cards. To finish off I added some Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0617 2 CU2 WM

That’s it from my side for today! Hope I could show you how to add more interest by mixing and matching parts of two differently stamped panels.

Coverplate SVG Cut Files

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards I made using our new digital cut files. And also I used the beautiful Abstract Peonies set from May Release for the first card.

Effie has designed beautiful layering floral cut files, cut files for stencils, coverplate cut files along with some very unique designs like Crashing Wave Layering Coverplate cut files. You can find them all in the digital category of The Ton shop. Stop by and take a look, if you haven’t done it yet. You don’t want to miss them out!

For my first card I used Garden Foliage coverplate as the backdrop for the floral cluster created using Abstract Peonies.

TT0603 GF 1 WM

I started off by stamping the peony flowers and leaves from Abstract Peonies set. I used Vanilla Frosted cupcake, Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine for the yellow flower and Peach Blossom, Coralline Hybrid and Coral Cavern for the coral one. The layers of the leaves were stamped in Bright Emerald and Hot Turmaline.  I then added the outlines and stamens of the flowers in Noir. I fussy cut all the images and set them aside.

TT0603 GF CU2 WMx

Next I cut the Garden Foliage coverplate from a heavyweight white cardstock panel with my Cricut. I then started making the background with a watercolor wash. In order to match with the colors I used for the florals, I chose sap green, naples yellow, cerulean blue and chartreuse Color Burst for the background. I first scattered the pigment powder on a watercolor paper panel and sprayed clear water. I repeated the process until I have a result I was happy with.

Tt0603 GF 3 WM

After the background panel was completely dry I adhered it on a white cardbase, added the Garden Foliage piece onto it and arranged the peony cluster as shown in the picture.  I white heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Florals set on a strip of black cardstock and added it to the card. I finished off the card with some Smoked Emerald and Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0603 GF 4 WM

The next card is showcasing Anemone Bunch Coverplate SVG cut file.

TT0603 AB 1 WM

Actually this card design has started with a mistake. The first cut was failed as I chose a wrong pressure of the blade so that the image wasn’t cut through. I used the failed one as the base. I could color the image as I had the outlines traced with the blade 🙂 ! I used Copic markers to color the flowers and leaves. I then blended Lemon Drop, Soft Garden and Soft Garnet in the background.

TT0603 AB CU4 WMx

After splattering opaque white ink on the whole panel I let it dry. I cut Anemone Bunch Coverplate once again from a heavyweight white cardstock this time with the right pressure. I mounted the colored panel on a white cardbase and adhered the Anemone Bunch Coverplate on it.

TT0603 AB 3 WMx

The sentiment was also cut using a digital cut file. It is one of the sentiments included in Mod Scripty Sentiments SVG cut file. I cut it three times from some white cardstock, stacked them together and added it onto the card. I then colored a strip of white cardstock using orange and yellow Copic markers and white heat embossed the sentiment from Brushed You set on it.  I cut it in a banner and glued it below “you”. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

TT0603 AB 4 WM

That’s it for today!

Thank you so much for looking! Hope I was able to give you some inspiration for a crafty day!

Happy Crafting!

Pretty Daisies

Hello everyone! Hope your week is going well so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards featuring two of our pretty daisy stamps, Daisy Fields and Daisy Close Up (Full View).

And there is one extra card I’m sharing here today. This additional pink card is featuring one of our Digital cut filesPeony Layering Coverplate SVG Cut File.

Let’s take a look at my pink cards 🙂 !!!

The first one is featuring Daisy Fields set. This set is a background stamp in 5.75″ by 5.75″size. But I used only a part of the image to embellish my card.

TT0515 1 1 WM

I started off by gold heat embossing the Daisy Fields on a vellum panel. I colored the image using Tombow brush markers on the back of the vellum. I then fussy cut a diagonal part of it which includes some full daisies connected with each other.

To create the background I ink blended Soft Garnet on the soft pink cardbase around the area where the flowers would be placed and splattered white opaque ink on it.

Tt0515 1 CU5 WMx

After the background was completely dry I stamped the sentiment from Scripty Greetings set in an ombre fashion in Grape Crush and Noir.

I then added the vellum piece with the daisies on it using clear foam tape. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

Tt0515 1 3 WM

The second card is showcasing our Daisy Close Up (Full View) and Pop-Up Butterfly Monarch die.

Tt0515 2 1 WM

I stamped Daisy Close Up (Full View) on a white cardstock in Soft Garnet to do some no line coloring. I actually thought of colored pencils or Copic markers at first but changed my mind and colored the daisy with acrylic paint. I love the texture of it!

Tt0515 2 CU3 WMx

After I finished coloring the pink daisy, I set it aside to dry. I then made the butterfly. To do that I cut the Pop-Up Butterfly Monarch from white cardstock. I cut the wings two times each to stack them together. I heat embossed the butterfly in iridescent sparkle embossing powder. I mounted the panel with the daisy on a white cardbsae and foam mounted the sparkly monarch on it. The sentiment is from The Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0 set. I white heat embossed it on a piece of black cardstock, matted it with some soft pink panel and added it to the card. I finished off the card by scattering some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix like the first card.

Tt0515 2 4 WM

Did you see the post where Effie introduced our new digital release? This release includes some gorgeous coverplate cut files. There are some new beautiful designs in the Digital category in our shop which aren’t mentioned in Effie’s post !!! Hope you check it out!!!

I used for next card  Peony Layering Coverplate SVG Cut File.

TT0515 3 1 WM

I cut the three layers of the cut files from Canson Mixed Media paper using my Scan N Cut. I then colored the Layers in Fuchsia, Peony and Wisteria Color Burst respectively.  I colored the center part of the peony a little bit darker to show some depth and the leaves in Turquoise.

Tt0515 3 CU3 WMx

After the colored layers were dry I adhered them together and splattered pink, white and gold ink on it. I then ink blended the cardbase in Hollywood Star and Caribbean Turquoise to give the base layer some color of the flower and leaves. I also splattered gold ink on the cardbase and adhered the layered peony on it. For a more finished look I cut a frame using Double Stitched Rectangle dies from some textured soft pink cardstock and added it to the card.

Tt0515 3 2 WM

The sentiment was cut from some Adhesive Foil paper gold and from white cardstock using Love & Hugs word plate dies, stacked together and added to the card. I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

Tt0515 3 4 WM

That’s it from my side for today! Hope I was able to give you some inspiration with my cards!

CLBH CU2 WMx

I colored the image with Luminance colored pencils. I chose soft colors for the flowers and the cup to give the card a springlike touch. I fussy cut the right side of the image along the outline and glued the panel on a soft pink cardstock. I cut the pink cardstock again along the outline leaving a thin pink border.

Floral Sympathy Card

Hello everyone! Hope the month of May started off great for you all! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral sympathy card. It isn’t a good feeling when a sympathy card is needed. But as card makers we can give some handmade love and comfort to someone in sorrow.

My card for today is featuring Wildflower Bouquet Builder set from our Spring release. This set includes several cute and cheery wildflower cluster images. But I tried this time to color the flowers in warm and soft tone except for the big red flowers to match the images with the occasion.

TT0501 1 WM

I started off by ink blending a A2 sized white cardstock panel in Lemon Drop and Peach Blossom after masking the middle part.  I left the mask and started stamping the floral clusters from Wildflower Bouquet Builder set in Lemon Drop on the upper and lower part of the masked area.

TT0501 CU1 WMx

I colored the floral images using Prismacolor colored pencils . After coloring was done I removed the mask. I then gold heat embossed the sentiment from Penned Sentiments set on the masked area.

TT0501 CU2 WMx

I cut the front panel using Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered two thin strips of Adhesive Foil paper gold on the borders between the sentiment and the colored area. I then foam mounted the panel on a kraft cardbase. To finish off I scattered some Medallion Gold sequins and little clear sequins from Coral Necklace Couture Mix and added white splatters using a white gel pen.

TT0501 3 WM

That’s it from me today! Hope you like my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Fantastic Feathers

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a card showcasing Fantastic Feathers set from Spring 2019 Release. Fantastic Feathers  is a large stamp set with a size of 8.75 x 12 inches. With this set you can create a beautiful layered peacock in your favorite color combination.

I wanted to represent a majestic white peacock in my card today.

Tt0415 1 WM

I started off by white heat embossing the base layer of the tail and body of the peacock on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I then colored the background in purple and teal using Turquoise and Orchid Color Burst.

The outer layer of the eye of the feathers and the second layer of the body were heat embossed in Rose Gold. I then stamped the second layer of the eye of the feathers and the root of the tail in Iris Blooms to match with the background color. The center of the eye of the feathers was heat embossed in Copper. I stamped the legs in Aspen Cocoa and Dark Roast.

Tt0415 CU3 WM new

After the peacock was finished I cut the whole panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and then a circle frame from the panel using Double Stitched Circle dies to add my sentiment. I stamped “magnificent” in Noir on a separate piece of white cardstock. I placed the stamp in a certain curve to fit it on the circle frame. I adhered Glossy Fine Transparent adhesive glitter paper on it to add some sparkle and fussy cut the sentiment. The small sentiments were stamped in black on the circle frame.

Tt0415 CU1 WMx

I mounted the panel on a white cardbase. The circle frame was foam mounted and the gilttery “magnificent” was added on it using some foam adhesives. I added Crystal Stickles on the center of the eye of the feathers and scattered some Smoked Amethyst and Smoked Emerald sparkling clear sequins to finish off my card.

Coloring Large Stamp and Die using Alcohol Ink

Hello everyone! Can you believe it’s already April ?!!! Time goes by so fast! Hope your April is off to a great start!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards to share with you. I chose  Peony Close Up and Pop-Up Butterfly die-Monarch for today’s cards and colored them using alcohol ink.

Let’s start with Peony Close Up card! I love all Close Up cling stamp series and this Peony Close Up is my absolute favorite.

TT0401 2 1 WM

I started by applying light wash of pink alcohol ink on a glossy cardstock panel. I used Shell Pink and Flamingo along with lots of rubbing alcohol to lighten the color. After the first layer was dry, I gold heat embossed the Peony Close Up on the panel.

TT0401 2 CU2 WMx

I then added more alcohol ink on the petals. This time I used also Sunset Orange to add a little bit of orange to the pink colors. I worked on petal by petal to define them in different shades. For the greenery I used Haselnut instead of green. I used a micro applicator to add color on small areas.

TT0401 2 3 WMx

After the colored panel was completely dry, I cut the “hugs” using Love and Hugs Word Plate die from the panel and from some light pink fun foam. I then started assembling the card by adhering the panel on a white cardbase. I inlaid the sentiment, raised using the fun foam die cut. The small “sending” is from Brushed Love stamp set. I made a fishtail banner using a scrap of glossy cardstock on which I applied Shell Pink alcohol ink. I gold heat embossed the sentiment on it and foam mounted it onto the card.

TT0401 2 6 WM

To finish off I colored the stamen using yellow Stickles and added Medallion Gold sequins and one pink sequin from Guava Sparkle Couture Mix.

The second card is featuring the huge butterfly wing die cut of Pop-Up Butterfly die-Monarch.

TT0401 1 1 WM new

To start off I’ve created a background panel in blue and purple. I first applied Blending solution on a Yupo panel, dropped Amethyst, Pool and Sail Boat on it and blended them together by blowing them.

TT0401 1 CU2 WM new

I cut the half monarch butterfly using Pop-Up Butterfly die-Monarch from a Yupo panel and colored it with the same alcohol ink colors without diluting them. After the alcohol inks were all dry, I splattered silver Mixative on the butterfly and the background panel.

Tt0401 1 3 WM

I glued the background Yupo panel on a dark blue cardbase, added two thin strips of Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive glitter paper on the middle of the panel and foam mounted the circle with a sentiment from Butterfly Wings-Monarch stamp set, stamped in Iris Blooms. I cut one more monarch butterfly from some blue fun foam to raise the Yupo butterfly. I completed the card by adhering the butterfly on the background.

TT0401 1 5 WM new

That’s it from my side. Hope I could inspire you with my cards today!

Thank you so much for looking!

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs,

Dry Embossing using Dies – featuring Washi Tapes

Hello and welcome to The Season! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards I made using our new floral washi tapes. I love love love the floral washi tapes!!! They are beautiful and you have endless possibilities to use them to embellish your projects! I cut out the floral images of the washi tapes and used them like die cut floral elements for both of my cards today. I created the background for the beautiful floral elements by dry embossing the panel using dies.

The first card is featuring Pink Peonies washi tape.

TT0318 2 1 WM new

I adhered the Pink Peonies washi tape on a white cardstock and fussy cut the floral clusters from it. I set them aside and started making the background panel.

Tt0318 2 CU2 WMx

To create the background I dry embossed a white A2 sized panel using Geo Mountain Coverplate die B. I then applied an embossing ink on the half of the panel and sprinkled Rose Gold embossing powder on the panel and heat set it.

Tt0318 2 CU4 WMx

I die cut the sentiment using Bold Amazing Greeting Word plate die and Sweetheart Word plate die from white cardstock. I heat embossed the upper part of “fabulous” in Rose Gold and foam mounted the letters on the background panel. I then arranged the small flowers and leaves from Pink Peonies washi tape around the letters and added “you’re” die cut, stacked three times, on the “fabulous”. I went over the “you’re” die cut with a clear glitter pen to add more shine.

Tt0318 2 4 WMx

The second card is showcasing Wildflowers washi tape.

TT0318 1 1 WMx

Here again I adhered the Wildflowers washi tape on a white cardstock and fussy cut the floral images. The background panel is a shimmer cardstock. I dry embossed it using Double Stitched Circle dies. I also cut a circle frame using two of the Double Stitched Circle dies from a dark gray cardstock as a base of my wreath.

Tt0318 1 CU2 WMx

I adhered the dry embossed background panel on a gray cardbase and foam mounted the dark gray frame on it. I then arranged the floral elements I cut from the Wildflowers washi tape in a wreath on the circle frame.

TT0318 1 CU5 WMx

The sentiment is from Painted Peonies set. I white heat embossed it on a circle vellum piece. I adhered the vellum on a gray circle and foam mounted it on the center of the card. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

TT0318 1 3 WMx

Dry embossing with dies adds interesting texture on your background!

That’s it from my side today! Hope I was able to inspire you with my cards :)!

Sending Hugs

Hello crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It’s TaeEun here today with a fiery floral card featuring Coming Up Peonies. I colored this beautiful peony cluster from Coming Up Peonies set using Copic markers. I tried a new color combination.

TT0311 3 WMx

I started off by stamping the image in Copic friendly Caviar hybrid ink. The peonies were colored in R30, R32, R37 and R89 which create beautiful coral shade. The leaves and stems were colored using V91, V93, V95 and V99. These V colors are very similar to warm gray colors with a touch of violet.

After coloring was done I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.

TT0311 CU3 WMx

I wanted a dark background. At first I tried a black panel but changed my mind and blended a coral to black ombre on a white panel. I used Coral Cavern, Peach Blossom, Grape Crush , Smoky Quartz, Light Onyx and Noir. I let the panel completely dry and stamped the Modern Plaid background stamp in an embossing ink on it. I then applied Mandarin Perfect Pearls powder on it using a dry paint brush. The powder sticks on the embossing ink and creates a subtle shiny pattern. I added water to the same powder and splattered it onto the panel. I also splattered white opaque ink.

TT0311 1 WM

After the panel was dry I cut it using the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on a black cardbase. I then foam mounted the Coming Up Peonies image on it.

The die cut sentiment was cut using Love and Hugs word plate die from Glossy Fine Black Adhesive glitter paper and from some black fun foam. I raised the black glitter die cut on the fun foam and added it onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0311 4 WM

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking my card today! Hope you enjoyed it :)!

 

Have a wonderful and crafty week!

Power Pumps & Hustle and Grind

Hello and happy Friday, everyone!

It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of encouragement cards made using Power Pumps and Hustle and Grind Sentiments stamp sets. These two stamp sets go so well together with their vigorous and bold characteristic.

On my first card I used the GORGEOUS Peony Close Up stamp as a backdrop for the pretty red high heel from Power Pumps  stamp set.

TT0222 1 2 WM new

First I stamped the high heel in Lipstick Red and Pink Derby. I stamped the insole and the heel using Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. I clear heat embossed the base layer of the shoe for some shine and added clear glitter on the insole using a clear glitter pen. I then cut the high heel using the coordinating die.

TT0222 1 CU2 WM

To create the background I watercolored the white heat embossed peony of Peony Close Up on some watercolor paper. I used Peony and Wisteria Color Burst powders. I applied lots of water on the panel and colored petal by petal. I added the vibrant color on the inner end of the petals while leaving the outer end of petals quite bright.

TT0222 1 CU5 WM new

The background panel was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle die and foam mounted on a white cardbase. The sentiment from Hustle and Grind Sentiments set was heat embossed in black on a torn strip of vellum and added to the panel before I adhered it on the cardbase. I then added the high heel using some foam adhesives and embellished the card with some Glass Slippers sequins and Santa’s Sneezes Couture Mix to finish it off.

TT0222 1 4 WM new

For my second high heel I made an alcohol inked panel.

TT0222 2 5 WMx

Here I heat embossed the high heel from Power Pumps in gold and copper. The heel and the insole were stamped in Lipstick Red and I added the shadow layer in Smoky Quartz. The high heel was then cut using the coordinating die.

TT0222 2 CU1 WM

To make the background I used several alcohol inks in red shade. I applied Blending solution first on a glossy cardstock panel and dripped the alcohol ink colors. I blew the ink to blend them, splattered gold mixative on it and let it a bit dry. Before the panel was completely dry I pressed a gold foil on it with the help of a brayer. The foil sticks on the area where the ink is still wet leaving beautiful golden accents.

Tt0222 2 CU3 WM

I white heat embossed the sentiments from Power Pumps and Hustle and Grind Sentiments stamp set on some black cardstock. DREAMS DEMAND HUSTLE is actually one stamp from Hustle and Grind Sentiments set. I cut off each line and added them separately onto the card as shown in the picture. The sentiment in smaller font is from Power Pumps. Some Medallion Gold sequins were my finishing touch.

That’s it from me today. I hope I was able to inspire you with my cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I am truly grateful for your lovely comments ❤ !

Wishing you all a restful and crafty weekend!

Hugs,

TaeEun
