Now onto my project for Day 1 of our hop!

When I saw Suzy’s Blowing Butterflies stamp, I knew I needed to use it on our Haute Wedding Dress gal.  The dress is fairly billowy and provides a large enough canvas to insert many different designs.

I started off by creating my background panel. I stamped our Vogue Skyline in our Noir Dye Ink on the center of the panel. Then I blended some Cali Blue and Azurite Dye inks at the top and bottom edges of the panel.  I heat embossed the

Next, I went to work on that gorgeous dress! I stamped our Haute Wedding Dress on a separate card panel in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I gold heat embossed the bodice of the dress with.  Next I created a negative mask with our dress. I used the negative portion to mask the outer edges of the dress so that I could gold glitter heat emboss those beautiful butterflies within the dress.

After I embossed the butterflies, I carefully peeled off the negative mask and then spooned the gold glitter embossing powder over the butterfly stamped image. Then I melted all the powder with my heat gun. Next I colored in the dress and butterflies with zig markers.

After I finished coloring with my zig markers, I brushed on some clear Wink of Stella over the shaded areas of the dress to add some more sparkle.  Then I die cut our gal with the coordinating die.

Next I gold glitter heat embossed the fabulous Confidence is Sexy sentiment onto my blended card panel. Before I adhered the blended panel onto a side folding A2 card base, I added some stitching to the edges with our Double Stitched Rectangles die set.  Then I popped up my Haute Wedding Dress gal onto the panel and added some Dew Drops in both sizes to add some finishing touches to the card.

That’s it for my card for the day! Your next stop is the fabulous Ms. Suzy.  Make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win one of the giveaways mentioned above!

Treat Yourself

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with two cards saying “Treat Yo Self”.

I used two chic and classy stamp sets from our new Release: City Girls (Retail Therapy) and Born Classy and their coordinating dies. I know many of you fell in love with this unique sets like me :)!

On the first card I’ve created a night city scene with three ladies enjoying their free time shopping and sightseeing. I started off by making the night sky with city light. I blended Lemon Drop, Coralline hybrid, Parisian Blue, Iris Blooms and Noir Couture colors, after I masked one third of the A2 watercolor panel. Some splatters using silver watercolor were added and some dots using gel pens. I then stamped the skyline of the city from the Vogue Skies stamp set in Noir dye ink and then once more in embossing ink to clear heat emboss it. For the walkway I stamped the bottom part of the Scenes: Dept. Store cling background stamp in Crystal Pewter. I watercolored the walkway in silver to give it some shimmer and added thin silver glitter tape underneath the buildings. I mounted the front panel on the card base using some foam adhesive.

The ladies, the little dog and the bags from the City Girls (Retail Therapy) stamp set were stamped using our copic-friendly Caviar hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers and cut using Coordinating dies. I glued two ladies and the little dog flat on the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, which I silver heat embossed on some purple cardstock and cut into a banner. The sentiment was foam mounted on the card with a lady.

To make my second card I started out by stamping the flowers and greenery from Mini Wild Florals stamp set along the diagonal of the front panel. I used Soft Garnet, Orchid Crush and Rose Quartz for the flowers, Soft Garden, Bright Ememrald and Crystal Pewter for the greenery. I then added tiny flowers from Floral World stamp set in Iris Blooms as filler. I die cut the lady from the Born Classy stamp set using coordinating die out of the front panel and then stamped the lady in Orchid Crush on the die cut. I colored her skin and hair using Copic markers. To assemble the card I adhered thin strip of purple cardstock on both sides of my card base, the front panel flat on it and then foam mounted the lady in place. After I added shimmer on her hair and dress using Wink of Stella,I glued the silver heat embossed vellum part on the dress. The sentiments are from City Girls (Retail Therapy). To finish off I scattered some sequins from the Glass Slippers sequins mix.

I have one more picture to share with you. This is the second card before I added the vellum part. I was having a hard time deciding with or without…, till my  4 year old girl insisted on the version with the vellum layer :). I can’t say which one is more appealing to me. I actually like both of them. What do you think?
