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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Beautiful Branches

Hi peeps! How’ it going? Phew… this past weekend I went for a much needed crafty retreat. There were close to 50 girls and let me tell you, when that many girls gather, lack of sleep going to happen.

Crafting happened, too though not too much for me. Hah… too busy chatting with everyone. It’s always nice to meet in person friends that you’ve been interacting with online and to catch up with old friends.

Well, this past weekend, The Ton also had an awesome mini release. I was playing with the sets before the trip, which is a good thing, because after the trip, I got sick and didn’t really have time to create.

Anyway, here’s a card that I made using the new Beautiful Branches.

I just recently got some alcohol pearl ink and was creating a bunch of rainbow background. One of them I used on my card HERE and the other part I used on this card. The alcohol ink dries quickly, which is awesome, as I am not very patient in waiting for ink to dry. I simply trim a small part and adhere it to my card base.

Next, I stamp and color this beautiful flowering branch with Caviar ink pad and then adhere it to the card with foam adhesive. I always like a bit of dimension on my card.

Next, I stamp the many thanks sentiment from Peony Notes Bundle set and finish the card by adding some Fairy Pink Sparkling clear sequins. I love the way this card turned out as I do love card with lots of white space.

I think the rainbow strip compliment the flowering branch beautifully, don’t you think?
