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!

Stay well and healthy!

The sentiment is from Easy Expressions: Thanks set. I heat embossed the parts of the sentiment in white and Liquid Platinum and cut it using the coordinating die. I finish off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

Country Lilies

Hello, crafty friends! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card featuring Country Lily Layering Dies from our July 2020 Die Release.

TT0810 1 WM

I watercolored a watercolor paper in various shades of yellows and pinks and cut the three layers of the lilies from it. I assembled the yellow and pink lilies, added the white outline layers to them and set them aside.

TT0810 4 WM

I then cut a watercolor paper panel using the outline die from the Country Lily Layering Die set. I cut two overlapping lilies off from the panel and watercolored the negative piece lightly in yellow, pink and green. I splattered black ink on it and let the panel dry.

TT0810 2 WM

I foam mounted the negative background panel on a white cardbase and inlaid the pink lily first into the place and added the yellow lily to it.

The sentiment was stamped using the Easy Expressions: Thanks stamp set and cut using the coordinating die. To finish off I scattered a few Glass Slippers sequins.

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 :)!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Lily Trio

Hello crafty friends! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of cards I made using the Lily Trio Layering Coverplate Dies set. This set includes four coverplate dies with which you can create an A2 sized layered lily arrangement easily!

TT0723 all WM

For my first card I used the four layers of coverplate die cut pieces. It was a quick and easy one to make using the Lily Trio Layering Coverplate Dies set.

TT0723 1 1 WM

I cut the layers from dark pink, pink and light pink cardstock, lightening the color towards the top layer. The outline layer was cut from some heavyweight white cardstock. I assembled all the layers together and added it to a dark gray cardbase on which I splattered some white opaque ink.

TT0723 1 4 WM

The sentiment was stamped using Easy Expressions : Thanks stamp set. I stamped the Scripty part in Soft Garnet and the rest in Noir. I cut it using the coordinating die and added it to the card. To finish off the card I scattered some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

TT0723 1 2 WM

The main actor of the second card is the die cut sentiment created using the Tall and Skinny Alpha Coverplate die. The Lily Trio Layering Coverplate Dies was used to create the background.

TT0723 2 1 WM

I dry embossed a watercolor paper panel using the outline layer die of the Lily Trio Layering Coverplate Dies and watercolored it loosely in soft pink and green.

The letters for BEAUTIFUL was cut using the Tall and Skinny Alpha Coverplate die three times from white cardstock and once from Adhesive Glitter paper glossy fine silver.

TT0723 2 4 WM

To assemble the card I trimmed the background panel a bit and foam mounted it on a gray cardbase. The die cut letters were stacked together and added to the card. I cut “you’re” using Sweetheart Word Plate die from some watercolor paper, colored it in light pink and added it onto the BEAUTIFUL. Here also I used some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix to embellish the card.

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

Lovely Hibiscus

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies from our July Die Release.

TT0716 all WM

For the first card I used only the outline die cut and colored the hibiscus with alcohol ink and for the second one I layered up watercolored die cut pieces.

TT0716 1 1 WM

To make this card I stared off by die cutting the outline of the Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies. I cut it three times and adhered one of them on a A2 sized Yupo panel. I then applied alcohol inks on it. For the petals I used Mountain Rose, Watermelon and Red Pepper and for the leaves Meadow ink. I blended the alcohol ink with rubbing alcohol and splattered a bit of alcohol on the panel and let it dry.

TT0716 1 4 WM

After the alcohol inked panel was dry I stacked two white die cut Hibiscus outlines on the first layer. I die cut the stamen from some yellow cardstock and added it to the hibiscus.

TT0716 1 2 WM

For the sentiment I used one from my stash which was stamped using Easy Expressions: Birthday stamp set. I gold heat embossed the scripty part and stamped the rest in Noir and cut it using the coordinating die. I finished off the card by adding three small Medallion Gold sequins to the stamen.

TT0716 1 3 WM

And this is the second card.

TT0716 2 1 WM

To start off I cut the layers of the Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies from Canson Mixed Media paper and colored them using Color Burst. I used Wisteria, Peony, Orange and Lemon Yellow for the layers of hibiscus flower and Sap Green, Phthalo green and Sepia for the leaves.

After the pieces were dry I assembled the flower and added the outline which was cut from some light gold shimmer cardstock.

TT0716 2 4 WM

To create the background I watercolored a watercolor paper panel in Payne’s gray, Phthalo green and gold, let it dry and cut it using the Double Pierced Rectangle Coverplate die. I adhered one frame using foam tape and the rest flat on a white cardbase. The sentiment was stamped using Easy Expressions set and cut with the coordinating die. To finish off the card I added some Medallion Gold sequins.

TT0716 2 3 WM

This huge hibiscus, filling the whole A2 panel, is so classy and gorgeous! Have you checked out our  July 2020 Die Release ? Along with this beautiful Lovely Hibiscus Layering Dies eight more gorgeous die sets were debuted, so hope you’ll check it out, if you haven’t already 🙂 !

Sweet Bouquet

Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing an anniversary card with you!

I colored the beautiful Sweet Bouquet image using Copic markers and added camouflaging Mega Confetti Numbers to it. I used the Mega Confetti Numbers coordinating dies as standalone dies and it worked great!!! Let’s take a look!

TT0625 1 WM

To start off I stamped the Sweet Bouquet in a light ink on a Neenah solar white paper panel and colored the image using Copic markers. To color the big coral flower I used R20s. The pink flower was colored in RV10, RV21, RV23, RV13 and RV14. For the small yellow flowers I used Y02, Y06, Y15 and Y17.  The leaves were colored in various YG and G colors.

TT0625 5 WM

After I finished coloring the image, I also colored the background in dark navy using Copic B99 and added darker shade using N9. After the coloring was completed, I stamped the stamen in an embossing ink and gold heat embossed them.

Next I cut the numbers using Mega Confetti Numbers coordinating dies from the colored panel and heat embossed the numbers in clear iridescent embossing powder to add some sparkle and shine.

TT0625 2 WM

I splattered white opaque ink on the background of the colored panel and cut it using a Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Nested Die. I mounted the panel flat on a navy cardbase and added the numbers raising them using die cut fun foam numbers.

The sentiment is from Layered Floral Alphas stamp set. I stamped it in True Navy on a strip of white cardstock. I foam mounted the sentiment strip and scattered some Glass Slippers sequins to finish off my card.

TT0625 4 WM

Hope you enjoyed looking my anniversary card today :)! I had a blast coloring the whole panel using Copic markers 🙂 !

Thank you so much for visiting!

Happy crafting!

Butterfly Hello and Peony Hugs

Hello everyone ! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of cards made using new dies from our June 2020 Release. The Ton has released eight unique new die sets along with a new grouped layering floral stamp: Poppy Wishes.  For today’s card I used the gorgeous Swallowtail Butterfly Layering dies and Lovely Peony Layering dies. They have been available as digital cut files on The Ton shop but now you can cut them without a cutting machine! The sentiments are from Many Sentiments die set.

For my butterfly card I chose a complementary color scheme: yellow – purple and made a simple card.

TT0604 3 WM

To start off I did a light watercolor wash on a mixed media paper panel in blue and purple using Gansai Tambi watercolor. I also added strokes of silver watercolor to the panel and let it dry. After the panel was dry I  cut the detail layer of the swallowtail butterfly using the Swallowtail Butterfly Layering die set. The base layer was cut from a platinum vellum panel.

TT0604 4 WM

To create the background I colored a watercolor paper panel in yellow and splattered silver watercolor. After the panel was dry I cut it using the Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Coverplate Die.

I mounted the background flat on a gray cardbase except for the outermost frame which was foam mounted. I then added the butterfly to the card by adhering the body using foam adhesive.

TT0604 5 WM

The sentiment was cut using the Many Sentiments dies set. I cut the word hello four times from some white cardstock and the matching shadow from black cardstock. I stacked them all together and added it to the card after placing a nest of silver thread.

I finished off the card with some Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0604 1 WM

The next card is showing the Lovely Peony Layering dies! I love it! It looks so pretty when all assembled !!!

TT0604 2 1 WM

I watercolored a lightweight watercolor paper in several shades of pink and green to cut my peony layers. I mixed a little bit of orange to the pink to give the petals a more natural look.

 

TT0604 2 7 WM

I cut all the elements of Lovely Peony Layering dies and glued the layers together. To add more greenery to my arrangement I cut some leaves from watercolor paper which colored in light green using Leafy Bits coverplate die. Some of the leaves were cut from white cardstock.

TT0604 2 6 WM

I wanted to have another yellow background. I ink blended Lemon Drop and Peach Blossom on a white cardbase keeping the border white. After ink blending I stamped Bare Tones background. I stamped it first in Lemon Drop and stamped it again in Peach Blossom, this time after inking up only the center part of the stamp. The white frame was cut using Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Coverplate Die. I cut it two times and glued them together for some dimension. I added the frame and the leaves to the cardbase and foam mounted the peony on it. The sentiment and embellishment were done in the same way like the first card.

TT0604 2 4 WM

Hope you like my cards ! If you haven’t checked out our June 2020 Release, please click here !

Wishing you a day filled with kind words!

2020 SPRING | SUMMER COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

Hi everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a very special post. We are so excited to join the super fun 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!  The Ton is a proud sponsor on this blog hop this year again.  You can link up your newly created coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects for a chance to win lots of prizes, including $20 gift code to The Ton shop (stamps/dies/ink/gilding)!

CLBH blog banner

This hop runs from Friday, May. 22. to Friday, May. 29. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog . See all the details HERE.

I made a coffee themed ( it could be a cup of hot cocoa, if you want 🙂 ) shaker card using our Tea Party coordinating die set and some of our new items from May Release : Rose Patch stamp and die set and Oval Nested die.

CLBH 2 WM

I started off by cutting the front oval piece. I cut it using the cup die from the Tea Party coordinating die and an Oval Nested die. I cut it from some gold glitter paper and white cardstock and adhered them together to make the panel sturdier. I adhered a piece of clear acetate on the back of the panel and set it aside.

CLBH 1 WM

Next I prepared the background panel. I watercolored the panel in ombre brown. I wanted that the brown reminds you of coffee or cocoa, so I made the background upwards from the middle of the cup very bright. After the background panel was dry I drew a few lines using a gold gel pen.

I mounted the background flat on a creme cardbase and made the shaker part by adding the front piece using foam tape. I used Hot Cocoa Couture Mix as the shaker elements.

CLBH 4 WM

To embellish the card front I arranged a small rose bouquet using Rose Patch, Bountiful Leaves and Floral Bits stamp set and coordinating dies. The orange flowers were stamped in  Amber CitrineCoraline HybridCoral Cavern and the leaves in  Soft GardenBright FernDeep Emerald.

The sentiment is from Easy Expressions. I gold heat embossed the handwritten part and stamped the rest in Noir. I cut it using the coordinating die and added it to the card.

I finished off the card with three Medallion Gold sequins.

CLBH 3 WM

so very happy for you

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here sharing a couple of floral cards which are mainly watercolored. I happened to use the same sentiment for both of my cards, so I took the title of my post from it 🙂 .

Without further ado let’s get on today’s cards!

In the first card I paired the morning glories from Morning Glory Cheer stamp set with the Morning Glory Border background.

TT0520 1 1 WM

I started off by making the background panel. I white heat embossed the Morning Glory Border background and colored it using Color Burst powders in blue, purple and green. I cut the panel using a Rectangle A2 Nested Die and set it aside.

TT0520 1 4 WM

The Morning Glory Cheer was stamped in the Amethyst collection, the Blues Collection and the Crystal Garden Collection. I cut them using the coordinating die.

Tt0520 1 2 WM

I then assembled the card together. The background panel was foam mounted on a navy cardbase. I added a piece of vellum rectangle, one side of which was torn, to the background to tone it down. The morning glory cluster was arranged on the vellum. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions set. I gold heat embossed the handwritten part and stamped the rest in Noir. I. cut it using the coordinating die.  I added the sentiment using some foam tape and scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins to finish off the card.

TT0520 1 3 WM

For the second card I used the outline leaves from Bountiful Leaves set.

TT0520 2 1 WM

I white heat embossed the leaves and cut them using the coordinating die. I arranged the leaves on a piece of A2 sized scrap paper to get an idea where I should add colors in the background. I watercolored a watercolor paper panel in blue and green and let it dry.

TT0520 2 4 WM

I then adhered the die cut leaves on the background panel and watercolored them also in blue and green. I added lots of white splatters on the panel. After the panel was dry I cut the panel using a Rectangle A2 Nested Die  and foam mounted it on a white cardbase.

TT0520 2 2 WM

I used the same sentiment that I used for the first card. I added a tiny bouquet of yellow flowers with the sentiment strip to the card. The little flowers are made using the Floral Bits stamp and die set. To finish off the card I added some Lemon Chiffon and Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0520 2 3 wM

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

Stay well, lovelies!

Hugs,

TaeEun
