Seize the Birthday - Dashes and Doodling

Hello everyone! 
A new challenge is waiting for you over at Seize the Birthday


For the next fortnight we have a Toppings option of Dashes and Doodling! I think you can let your creativity play for this Toppings option! Of course you can link up any newly created birthday card, if you are not a toppings kinda person.

I've created a quite a simple card which was quick to make. 


I dripped Watermelon and Poppy Field alcohol ink on A2 sized Yupo paper, let it dry and doodled the flower centers, the stems and leaves using Sharpie markers. The sentiment is from the Party Fans stamp set from The Ton. I heat embossed it in Liquid Platinum. You should go over very fast with the heat tool, when you heat emboss something on Yupo paper, as it warps very easily. I mounted the panel flat on my card base and so finished off my card.

Now it's your turn to create birthday cards with or without dashes and doodling!
Please hop over to the Seize the Birthday blog for more inspirations from my fellow DT members and our Surprise party guest Rahmat Gouse!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

Today we are celebrating our new Release with amazing guest designers in this blog hop.

For today's event I've created two cards!


 I used a part of the Thoughtful poppies stamp set to make a circled arrangement of poppies around my big sentiment. I stamped this cluster of three poppies in Caviar Hybrid ink twice to do that. I colored the poppies using Copic markers and added gray shade around the flowers. I then cut out the center part using Double Stitched Circle die. The Sentiment is from The New Pretty stamp set. I gold heat embossed it on a black cardstock and die cut it with the next smaller Double Stitched Circle die. I took a black card base on which I stamped the Freestyle Stripes stamp in Hampton White Pigment ink, glued a piece of dark red cardstock on the right side and assembled the colored panel and sentiment as shown in the picture using some foam adhesive. I added some white dots to the center of two poppies and left the card without any embellishment.


My second card is made with the Dahlia Close Up rubber cling stamp.


I started off by clear heat embossing the Dahlia Close Up on a watercolor cardstock. I then blended pink to violet Distress inks to lift the colors off the image later using paintbrush and clear water. I lifted the colors from ends of petals and added more shades to the inner part of the petals using gray Copic markers to give them more dimension. I then coated the entire panel with clear Wink of Stella. For a camouflaging sentiment I die cut the happy from our Birthday Word dies out of the colored panel and once again from a purple foam. I mounted the panel to the card base then the purple foam and die cut happy to the place and added the BIRTHDAY from the Oscar stamp set which I white heat embossed on some purple cardstock. To finish off I scattered a few sequins from Disco Spring Couture Mix.


That's it from me today! Make sure to hop along with us for amazing inspirations and of course to get a chance to win one of our giveaways!

ALL NEW RELEASE ITEMS ARE NOW AVAILABLE IN THE SHOP!!!

Let's take a look at my cards for today!

For my first card I made a scene using Scenes: Fountain Terrace rubber cling stamp.


I used only the upper part of the Scenes: Fountain Terrace background to make place for the airplane from City Girls Park Life stamp set. I stamped the Fountain Terrace in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake on Yupo paper and applied alcohol ink in the images by dripping the ink and tilting the paper. I used Citrus, Botanical, Aqua, Pool, Slate and Snow Cap alcohol ink. For the sky I swiped a felt applicator with Aqua, Snow Cap alcohol ink and blending solution. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the scene again in embossing ink and heat embossed it in Liquid Platinum embossing powder with the help of Misti. The airplane and the banner form City Girls Park Life were heat embossed in silver on a shimmery silver cardstock and fussy cut before I foam mounted it in the sky. The sentiment is from the City Girls Park Life stamp set as well. I stamped it in Noir dye ink. To finish off the card I added some Crystal Stickles on the heart of the fountain. 


Do you need some inspiration for Valentine's day? How about this?


To start off I stamped the couple from City Girls Special Day stamp set on a white cardstock in Caviar Hybrid ink. I stamped the mirror image of the boy using a solid rubber stamp. After masking the twosome I stamped the little rose from the Born Classy stamp set in Red Sangria Hybrid ink and masked it. After that I stamped the bench and the balloons from City Girls Park Life in Caviar Hybrid ink and the heart shaped balloon from the City Girls Special Day in Red Sangria Hybrid ink. I then blended Soft Garnet on the upper end and Soft Garden  on the bottom end of the panel. I colored the images using Copic markers. The sentiment is from Brushed You stamp set. I silver heat embossed the small I LOVE on the heart balloon and stamped the big you in Crystal Pewter and then slightly offset in embossing ink to heat emboss it in silver. I drew both ends of the scripty "you" on the card base using Embossing pen and silver heat embossed it as well to make the sentiment go through the entire card. I trimmed the front panel slightly down and foam mounted it on the card base and added Glossy Accents on the heart balloon.

I have five cards to share with you today! So hope you have a cup of tea or coffee in hand now :)!
Are you ready for the sweetness :)? 


For my first card I stamped the macarons in layer and to stack them up I used masking along the way. For pink macarons I used Soft Garnet, Hollywood Star and Red Sangria, and for the green one Soft Garden, Bright Emerald and Bright Fern. The creme part was stamped in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and Lemon Drop. The silver heat embossed dish is from the Tea Party stamp set. I added a blue poppy from the Lone Poppy stamp (incentive stamp) on the dish which I stamped in Arctic Sky, Cali Blue and Azurite. The leave is from Fresh Cut Poppies which I stamped using the same colors as the green macaron. I die cut a hot pink panel using our biggest Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on the card base. I then cut a silver cardstock with the next  Double Stitched Rectangle die and the stamped panel as well.  I silver heat embossed the sentiment from Sweet Macarons stamp set on a vellum, torn it by hand and added it on a corner of the front panel. I then mounted the silver panel and the front panel onto the card. To finish off I added some sequins from Winter Thaw and Glass Slippers


My second card is a sweet birthday card with a macaron tower from the Sweet Macarons stamp set.


I stamped the macaron tower in Caviar Hybrid ink on Bristol paper. To make the background I masked it off and blended Arctic Sky, Rose Quartz and Orchid Crush and splattered white ink. I then colored the macaron tower using Zig brush pens. I added clear Wink of Stella on the flower. To create a table for the macaron tower to stand, I stamped Minor Stripes cling stamp on my card base in Plum Wine. I cut the front panel in the same angle as the stripes and foam mounted it on the card base. The sentiment is from Sweet Macarons as well. I stamped it in Plum Wine and again in Grape Crush this time only the bottom part to give it an ombre look. The sequins are from Disco Spring Couture Mix. I love the silver holo sequins with amazing sparkle!


Next I made a birthday card using Party Fans stamp set.


I chose 5 color families for this party fan decoration in happy colors. In Party Fans stamp set there are three sizes of party fans and each fan has three layers. I used for yellow fans Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop and Amber Citrine, for blue fans Arctic Sky, Cali Blue and Azurite, for green fans Soft Garden, Bright Emerald and Bright Fern, for pink fans Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Hollywood star and for orange fans Beach Blondie, Peach Blossom and Coraline hybrid.  I stamped them randomly while masking when needed. I then stamped three fans on a white cardstock, fussy cut and mounted them with foam tape for some dimension. The sentiment is from the Party Fans stamp set as well. I stamped it in Noir Dye ink. To finish off  I added rhinestones in coordinating colors on the center of the fans. 

My fourth card for today could be a Valentine's day card!


Effie designed again a gorgeous border stamp. This time it is with morning glories! As you may already know the border stamps make card making so easy. I stamped the Morning Glory Border rubber cling stamp on a white cardstock, the morning glories in light pink and the leaves in light green. I then colored them with Copic markers first and added details using Polychromos colored pencils. I chose the Brushed Love as my sentiment. I gold heat embossed it and added the white heat embossed "SENDING" on a purple cardstock to it. My finishing touch for this floral card was some clear Dew Drops.


The last card is showcasing the Poppy Garden Rubber Cling stamp.


Of course you can make a gorgeous full background with this stamp. But this time I made front panels to cover some part of the image using my cutting machine. I cut them from dark red cardstock and one of them from our Adhesive glitter paper gold  as well to adhere it on the dark red panel. The main panel was made by heat embossing the Poppy Garden cling stamp in glitter gold and coloring using Zig brush pens. I glued it on the card base and then foam mounted the front panels on that. The sentiment was built using Scripty Alpha Lower stamp set. I gold heat embossed it. To finish off my card I added a few sequins from Princess Glam and Cinderella's Ride Couture Mix.

Be Brave - CTS #203

Hello again!

I'm popping in between my busy scheduled posts to share with you one card I made today.
This is for the CAS(E) this Sketch #203. This week's sketch was created by my sweet crafty friend Michele Ferguson and I didn't want to miss this.

As I saw the sketch, the border line in it reminded me of a wave in the ocean. So I decided to go with that idea and made cutting files for two layers of wavy lines and a dolphin.


First I cut the waves from some white cardstock with my Cricut and colored them with Copic markers (various BGs). I then cut the dolphin from a gray cardstock and added some shade of gray on the back of the dolphin with Copics and the eye using a black gel pen. I stamped the water drops in aqua and gold heat embossed the sentiment from Paper Smooches on my card base and foam mounted the waves and the dolphin as shown in the picture.



This is Michele's pretty sketch!


I'm so glad I could manage to join in this week's CTS!

Wishing you all a nice day wherever you are!
Hugs,
TaeEun
