Summery Cards

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with three summery cards I made using new items from Summer 2019 Release.  Effie released five new stamp sets recently. I used four of them for today’s cards.

First two cards are featuring three ocean themed stamp sets: Ocean Free, City Girls: Sunkissed Mermaids and City Girls: Summer Sunshine. I love the refreshing and authentic designs!

Let’s take a look at the first card which is showcasing Ocean Free set and the mermaid tail from City Girls: Sunkissed Mermaids.

TT0814 3 1 WM

I started off by white heat embossing the scene on a watercolor paper panel and colored the image using Color Burst. The mermaid tail was heat embossed in Rose Gold  on a separate piece of white cardstock and colored in rainbow colors of Zig brush markers.

TT0814 3 4 WM

I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and stamped the sentiment from City Girls: Sunkissed Mermaids set on the beach in Noir.  I cut a slit along a wave in the ocean to put the fussy cut mermaid tail into it. The mermaid tail was then adhered on the back of the panel and the fin was foam mounted on the card front.

TT0814 3 5 WM

I mounted the panel flat on a light blue cardbase and added some Glass Slippers Round Confetti as finishing touch.

The next ocean card is featuring the relaxing girl on the beach from City Girls: Summer Sunshine set.

TT0814 2 1 WM

I started off by stamping the girl and the parasol in black on a watercolor paper panel. I then stamped the scene from Ocean Free set in an embossing ink and white heat embossed it. I didn’t mask the first stamped images. Instead, I brushed off the embossing powder from the image before heat setting it.

TT0814 2 CU2 WM

I watercolored the scene using Color Burst and Zig brush markers, cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it on a light blue cardbase. I stamped the sentiment from City Girls: Summer Sunshine set on some white cardstock in Noir. I cut it into a speech bubble and foam mounted it onto the card.

TT0814 2 3 WM

The last card made using Palm Close Up and Darling Flamingos could be a wedding card or an Anniversary card.

TT0814 1 1 WM

To start off I stamped the Palm Close Up  in Bright Emerald and Hot Tourmaline and clear heat embossed it. I colored the panel with Color Burst and added some golden accents and splatters using gold watercolor. After the panel was dry, I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle dies to a tall rectangle and set it aside.

TT0814 1 CU2 WM

The flamingos from Darling Flamingos set were stamped in Ballet Slippers, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink, Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz and fussy cut.

I chose a teal cardbase to go with the palm leaf. I adhered a strip of Adhesive Gold Glitter paper on the right side of the cardbase and added the palm leaf on it. I foam mounted a white circle cut using a small Double Stitched Circle die and added the flamingos on it. The sentiment from City Girls: Summer Sunshine set was white heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock. To finish off the card I scattered some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT0814 1 3 WM

That’s it from my side! Hope you’re having a wonderful Summer like the girl in my card :)!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hibiscus & Hummingbird

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a card featuring two digital cut files from digital category of The Ton’s online shop. I combined Hibiscus Layered Coverplate Bundle SVG cut file and Hummingbird Layering SVG cut file to make my card.

TT0807 1 WM

First I resized the hibiscus and the hummingbird on Cricut design space as I wanted. Then I cut the layers of the hibiscus and the hummingbird from white cardstock.

TT0807 CU3 WMx

I colored the layers using alcohol markers and assembled them together. I left the outline cuts uncolored, then adhered them on the layered images.  I didn’t color the base layer of the hibiscus completely so that the strokes of the markers can be seen. For the hummingbird I chose purple and gray combination. I went over the hummingbird with a clear glitter pen after coloring was done and added some sparkly Stickles on his wings and the neck. I also added yellow Stickles on the stamen of the hibiscus.

TT0807 3 WM

To create the background I did watercolor wash in red and purple on a watercolor paper panel using Color Burst. I also added white and purple splatters on it. I adhered the background panel flat on a white cardbase, cut a white frame using two Double Stitched Rectangle dies and foam mounted it on the background. I then added the hibiscus and the hummingbird using foam adhesives. The sentiment from Summer Blooms set was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and added onto the card.

TT0807 4 WM

That’s it for today! Don’t forget to check out the digital section of The Ton’s online shop! There are some gorgeous creations by Effie! Hope you dig out your cutting machine and give it some love 🙂 !

Have a crafty day!

Hugs,

Two Peony Cards in the same Layout

Hello everyone! It’s already the last day of July! Hope you’re having a cool Summer/cozy Winter 🙂 ! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring our gorgeous Large Peony stamps. I made two cards in the same layout.

For the first card I wanted to use one of my favorite color combination- coral and gray. But I failed to create coral watercolor while I was coloring the peonies. So it turned to yellow, orange, coral and gray combination :)!

TT0731 2 1 WM

I started off by heat embossing the Large Peony 1, 4 and 5 on Canson Mixed Media paper in Rose Gold embossing powder. I colored the flowers using Mijello Mission gold watercolor and die cut them using coordinating dies.

TT0731 2 CU2 WMx

The solid leaf images from Large Peony 4 and 5 were heat embossed in Rose Gold and silver, also cut with the coordinating dies and set aside.

TT0731 2 4 WM

I ink blended Peach Blossom and Crystal Pewter on a white cardbase to make a background in coral and gray. I splattered white opaque ink on it and let it dry. The sentiment was cut using Love and Hugs word plate die three times from white cardstock. I heat embossed one of them partially in Rose Gold and stacked all three die cut words together.

TT0731 2 CU3 WMx

I then started assembling the card together. First I adhered the leaves on the cardbase and arranged three peonies on it using some foam adhesives. The butterflies were cut using Butterfly Swirl die from some watercolor paper and colored in yellow. I sponged the edge of the butterflies in Peach Blossom and added them to the card.  To finish off I adhered three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins and added glitter on the butterflies and the word.

TT0731 2 2 WM

The second card has the same layout like the first one. But I stamped and colored the peonies on a watercolor paper panel in the one layer style using masking technique.

TT0731 1 1 WM

I stamped the images in light ink to do no-line coloring. I used mainly Ultramarine Deep and Prussian Blue of my watercolor with a hint of light blue Zig brush marker to color the flowers. After coloring was completed, I splattered white opaque ink on the whole panel.

TT0731 1 CU1 WMx

 

TT0731 1 3 WM

For this card I cut the word “hugs” from watercolor paper and colored it in the same colors I used for the flowers. The butterflies were also watercolored in light blue.

TT0731 1 CU3 WMx

I narrowed down the colored panel a little bit and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. The sentiment and butterflies were added and the card was finished.

TT0731 1 4 WM

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

Have a happy and crafty day!

Coverplate SVG Cut Files II

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with three cards I made using The Ton’s digital cut files.

I’ve created three cards. Two of them are a set made using Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut file and the third card was made using Diamond Layering Coverplate SVG cut files and Flower Cart set from our May 2019 Release.

Let’s take a look at the couple of cards for each of which I used positive and negative cuts of the coverplate cut from Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut files.  Using  Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut files you can create a beautifully shaded dahlia as it has three layers. But I used only the coverplate cut file and added it on a watercolored base.

Tt0717 2 1 WM

To start off I cut the coverplate with the dahlia from Fresh Layered Dahlia Bundle SVG cut files from a silver cardstock. I also cut it from some white cardstock two more times.

I watercolored a Mixed Media paper panel using Color Burst. I used the coverplate cut as my guide so that I can color the dahlia in pink and the leaves and the background in green.

Tt0717 2 CU1 WMx

I stacked the coverplate cuts together and adhered it on the watercolored base layer. The hello sentiment was cut using hello word die from silver and black cardstock. I adhered the silver hello on the black one slightly offset and added it onto the card.

I finished off the card with some black, silver and clear sequins from Glossy Black sequins, New Year and Spotlight Couture Mix.

TT0717 2 3 WM

For the second card I used the silver pieces which were left from the cut I did for the first card.

TT0717 1 1 WM

I adhered the negative pieces on a black panel. I did it before I assembled the first card to use the coverplate cut as my guide. I mounted this black panel on a light gray cardbase.

TT0717 1 CU WM

I also cut a coverplate using Garden Foliage coverplate SVG cut file from some white cardstock and foam mounted it onto the card. The sentiment from Penned Sentiments set was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and added to the card. To embellish the card I added some clear Dew Drops.

Tt0717 1 3 WM

To create the last card I used Diamond Layering Coverplate as background for the Flower Cart.

TT0717 3 1 WM

I started off by stamping the flower cart, buckets of flowers, balloons and the sandwich board for the sentiment from Flower Cart set in Caviar hybrid ink on a white cardstock.

TT0717 3 CU1 WMx

I colored all the images with Copic markers and fussy cut. I then started making the background. I cut the four layers of Diamond Layering Coverplate cut files from white cardstock. I stamped Scenes Parisian Cafe stamp on my light gray cardbase and Diamond layering coverplates except for the uppermost layer in Crystal Pewter and assembled them together.

I then arranged the images from Flower Cart onto the background as shown in the picture. I finished off the card by adding three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

TT0717 3 3 WM

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

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a crafty day!

Peony Dreams Cluster

Hello everyone! Hope the month of July is off to a great start for you all! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I created using the beautiful Peony Dreams Cluster stamp! Peony Dreams Cluster is a big clear background stamp in 5.75 x 5.75 inches which includes two huge peonies.

For the first card I stamped the image as it is.

Tt0701 2 2 WM

To start off I white heat embossed the Peony Dreams Cluster on a watercolor paper panel and colored the image using Color Burst powders. I colored one peony in Fuchsia and the other in orange leaving the tip of each petal almost white to add highlight.

TT0701 2 CU1 WMx

After the panel was dry I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. I then cut the sentiment using Hugs word die once from Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy Fine Silver and three times from some heavyweight white cardstock. I stacked them together and adhered it onto the card. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

Tt0701 2 4 WM

TT0701 2 1 WM

For the next card I stamped only the part with one peony on a corner of a A2 sized panel, masked the flower and added some branches with little flowers to create a new floral cluster design.

TT0701 1 1 WM

I stamped Peony Dreams Cluster in light ink to do no-line coloring. After stamping was done I colored the image using Luminance colored pencils. I wanted to try a unusual color combination: burgundy, brown and gray. I also tried a new to me coloring style which shows the pencil strokes. It was hard for me to step out of my comfort zone but I’m glad I gave it a try.

TT0701 1 CU2 wM

The sentiment from Penned Sentiments set was gold heat embossed directly on the colored panel.

TT0701 1 CU1 WM

The colored panel was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle die again and foam mounted on a kraft cardbase. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT0701 1 2 WM

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

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!

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.

Wishing you all a happy week!

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!

Thank you so much for stopping by !

CLBH 1 WM

I started off by stamping the cup from Tea Party set in Hampton White pigment ink on a Toned Tan paper panel. I masked the cup and continued stamping the saucer and the floral cluster from Wildflower Bouquet Builder set.

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.

CLBH CU5 WMx

The sentiment is from Hug in a Mug set. I heat embossed the sentiment on the white cardbase in Rose Gold embossing powder. I foam mounted the front panel with the image on the cardbase. To finish off I added some sequins from Summer Soiree and Coral Necklace Couture Mix.

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!
