New Stamps by The Gray Muse

Hello and happy Saturday, everyone!!!

I have a couple of cards to share with you today! 

A lovely crafty friend, Rubeena has opened her own shop, The Gray Muse, where you can find the most awesome enamel pins designed for crafters.  She recently added clear stamps to her store and is releasing one stamp set when new enamel pins are debuting! By now she has two stamp sets in her store, Be Kind and Hugs, and I had the pleasure to play with them :)! Thank you, Rubeena ❤️!!! 

In these floral designs the sentiments are already integrated!  



I also love the design of the black and gold paper back she is using to ship her items.  How gorgeous!!!

Now let's take a look at the cards!
The first card is showing the Be Kind stamp set.


I stamped it on a Bristol smooth paper in Antique Linen distress ink and colored the flowers using Arteza and Zig brush markers. As I wanted the sentiment to stand out, I gold heat embossed the BE KIND after masking the area with the flowers. I brushed off the embossing powder which was on the floral image.


I added dots in the white area using W5 and W1 Copic markers. After the coloring was done, I cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die and mounted it flat on a gray cardbase.
To add some dimension and shine I filled the sentiment using white Pico embellisher and added white stamens with a white gel pen.


For the Hugs stamp set I chose my colored pencils to color. 


I started off by stamping the image in a white pigment ink on a mulberry cardstock. I then colored the flowers and sentiment using Prismacolor colored pencils. I started coloring the petals and leaves in white and layered them with other colors.


After the coloring was completed, I gold heat embossed the image. I left the stamp in my MISTI to do that. I narrowed down the panel a little bit and foam mounted it on a soft pink cardbase slightly tilted as shown in the picture. 


I finished off the card by adding Crystal Stickles on the sentiment and the Medallion Gold sequins by The Ton to the card.


As you can see, I had some relaxing coloring time! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!

If you haven't visited The Gray Muse yet, you are missing something! You will love Rubeena's enamel pins and stamps!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a great weekend!

The Flower Challenge #36 - Anything Goes - Reminder

Hello everyone! 
It's already time for a reminder post for the latest Flower Challenge! We are having an Anything Goes challenge this month! 


My Favorite Things is sponsoring us this month, they are giving away two prizes. So we will choose two winners this month! Each will receive a gift card worth $25.

For my reminder card I used Modern Blooms, Mini Modern Blooms and Flushy Florals stamp sets by MFT.


I stamped lots of small flowers and leaves on some white cardstock in pink and purple. The leaves were stamped in light gray. I then fussy cut them all out and set them aside. 


I created a background panel with a watercolor wash in pink and purple and splattered black ink on it. The dry background panel was cut down to a smaller size than A2 and foam mounted on a white cardbase.


 I arranged the flowers and leaves on it using some foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Chandelier set by The Ton. I stamped it in black on a strip of white card stock and added it onto the card. To finish off I scattered some clear iridescent sequins.


That's it! Now it's your turn to play along with us! Please hop over to The Flower Challenge blog for more inspiration! Hope to see your floral projects in the gallery!

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
TaeEun

Autumn Bliss - Penny Black

Hello and happy Friday everyone!  

Today I have three Fall themed cards to share with you. This post is full of Fall colors :) !!!

I had the pleasure to play with Penny Black's Autumn Bliss  release stamp and die sets recently. For today's cards I chose the dainty and natural stamp sets: Acorn and Animals(30-599), Golden Delight (30-601) and Autumn Bliss(30-600). 


This is my first card. I did some no line coloring on the beautiful fox and leaves from Acorn and Animals (30-599) and Autumn Bliss (30-600) and placed them on a shiny copper base. 


I stamped the fox and leaves on Canson watercolor paper in Antique Linen DI and watercolored them using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. I cut them out, some of the leaves using coordinating dies of Autumn Bliss Cut Out (51-590), and set them aside.


 The background panel was made using a metallic copper cardstock. I heat embossed the pretty wreath of Golden Delight (30-601) and the acorn branch from Acorn and Animals (30-599) on it in metallic copper EP to get a tone on tone look.


I mounted the slightly narrowed background panel on a white cardbase and arranged the leaves to put the fox on them. The die for the sentiment is from Blushing Cut Out (51-536). I cut the sentiment three times from some white cardstock and added it onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some gold and bronze rhinestones.


The second card is featuring a prettily decorated pumpkin from Autumn Bliss(30-600) set and again the acorn branch from Acorn and Animals (30-599) set. 


I stamped the pumpkin on a solar white paper in light brown ink and colored it using Copic markers. After the coloring was done I gold heat embossed the image again with the help of MISTI tool and cut it using the coordinating die.


To create the background I used the acrylic block stamping technique. I chose a 2.5" x 3.5" block, scribbled yellow, orange and dark red Distress inks on it, sprayed pearlized water and pressed it onto a watercolor paper panel. I repeated the process to get the look I wanted.


After the panel was dry I gold heat embossed the acorn branch from Acorn and Animals (30-599) twice on it as shown in the picture. I then dry embossed the panel using a Stitched Loops die (51-573) to give the colored rectangle a frame. Lastly I stamped the sentiment from  Golden Delight (30-601) stamp set on it in dark brown.


I foam mounted the background panel on a kraft cardbase and added the pumpkin on it using some foam adhesives. Some Medallion Gold sequins by The Ton were my finishing touch.


The last card for today is a square card.  I thought the cute wreath of Golden Delight (30-601) set would fit perfectly on a square card :)!


First I made the background panel. I used Hazelnut, Butterscotch, Sunshine Yellow and Mountain Rose alcohol ink to create a Fall colored panel. On a Yupo panel I sprayed lots of rubbing alcohol, added the droplets of alcohol inks and blew to blend them. And then I splattered gold Mixative on it.


The wreath of Golden Delight (30-601) was stamped in a light ink on a solar white paper panel, colored using Copic markers and then gold heat embossed.  I cut the wreathe using Golden Delight Cut Out (51-589). 


I cut the background Yupo panel in a square, matted it with a dark brown square panel and added them on a white cardbase. The wreath was foam mounted on it. The sentiment was gold heat embossed on a strip of the same dark brown cardstock I used for the background, and added onto the card. 



Hope you enjoyed looking my Fall themed cards!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and staying with me through this long post :) !
Have a wonderful weekend!

Seize the Birthday #174 - It's Just a Number

Hello everyone! Are you having a great week so far? I hope you are 😃!

A new challenge has started today at Seize the Birthday. We have a toppings option chosen by Shirley - It's Just a Number!
We have always Anything Goes category, if you don't like to take our toppings option! Any birthday themed project is welcome in our gallery!


I found a perfect sentiment stamp by Penny Black called Sprinkles and Smiles in my stash ! I paired this sentiment with Gardenia Border Cling stamp by The Ton to complete my card! 


First I stamped the sentiment in a black pigment ink on the center of a Bristol smooth panel and clear heat embossed it. I then stamped the Gardenia Border stamp on it in Antique Linen DI.


I colored the flowers using Zig brush markers while blending the colors with a water brush. The finished front panel was cut using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted flat on a white cardbase.  



That was a pretty simple one layer card without any embellishment! Hope I was able to inspire you with my card to play along with us!

Please don't forget to hop over to Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my amazing team mates! And we have a new Surprise Party Guest for next two month, Annie from Annieshobby! She is an avid participant at Seize the Birthday and makes awesome clean and colorful cards!

The Flower Challenge #36 - Anything Goes

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful week so far! 

Today I want to share my DT card for The Flower Challenge #36: Anything Goes !!! 


My Favorite Things is sponsoring us this month, they are giving away two prizes. So we will choose two winners this month! Each will receive a gift card worth $25.

I used You Have My Heart, Blissful Blooms and Bold Blooms stamp set by MFT for my one layer card. 


I started off by stamping the little flowers and leaves from Blissful Blooms and Bold Blooms stamp set in a black pigment ink on a watercolor paper panel in a wide V shape. I masked some images while stamping.  I then masked the images in the middle and stamped the little girl with her pet dog from You Have My Heart set.


I colored the stamped images using Mijello Mission Gold watercolor. I added light green shade underneath the images and then ink blended the top border of the panel in yellow DIs. 
The sentiment is also from You Have My Heart set. I stamped it in a black pigment ink directly on the colored panel and clear heat embossed it. 


That's it! Now it's your turn! Make some floral cards and share them with us at The Flower Challenge!
