Peony Memories - The Ton

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

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards on The Ton's blog which are featuring Peony Memories Cardmaking stamp set. This stamp set is designed for an easy layering and die cutting of multiple peony flowers and leaves.

I combined the flowers with Lean Back and Hey There Sentiments stamp sets from our Anniversary Release.

Pinkfresh Studio February 2020 Background Stamp Release Blog Hop



You've arrived here from my lovely team mate Ivana's blog, if you're following the blog hop order. In case you're lost on the way or want to start over, please hop over to Pinkfresh Studio blog!

At Pinkfresh Studio nine background cling stamps are debuting today! From floral to graphic and abstract, surely you will find something you love!

I have four cards to share with you featuring three of the background stamps that are debuting today.

The first two cards are showcasing Diagonal Bars and Do What You Love stamps. These two stamps could be combined together or used alone. I've created the backgrounds for my cards by combining them.


The first one is showing the Diagonal Bars and the Do What You Love  background stamps along with the beautiful Curvy Floral Vine form the January Release. 


I started off by stamping the layered image of the Curvy Floral Vine  in brown and orange using Wild Truffles ink set and Rise and Shine ink colors. I stamped two pieces, cut them using the coordinating die and set them aside.


To create the background I stamped the Do What You Love  in Warm Buff on a white cardbase and heat embossed the Diagonal Bars  in white pearl EP. The oval panel was cut uinsg the small Braided Oval die from some vellum. The sentiment from the  Curvy Floral Vine  set was white heat embossed on a strip of dark brown cardstock. I think the sentiment goes so well with the words in the Do What You Love background!!! 


I adhered the sentiment strip and the two Curvy Floral Vine image on the vellum panel and added it to the card using some foam tapes. I finished off the card with some yellow Jewels


The second card featuring the Diagonal Bars and the Do What You Love stamps was embellished with a floral cluster of the Layered Bouquet set.


To stamp the Layered Bouquet image I used the same color combination like the first card. I cut it using the coordinating die and set it aside. The Diagonal Bars and the Do What You Love stamps were stamped in Regal Kiss on a Mulberry cardstock panel which was cut using the Stitched Rectangle die.


To keep the background tone on tone I cut the Ornate Oval Frame from some shimmer cardstock in mulberry. I foam mounted the background panel on a Walnut Cream cardbase and added the oval frame to it using some tiny foam tapes. I then tucked the Layered Bouquet inside the frame. 


The sentiment, also from the Layered Bouquet set, was gold heat embossed on a piece of heavyweight vellum. I finished off the card by scattering some orange Crystals.


My next card is showing the Abstract Cube background stamp and the Frame Builder: Botanical oval die set from the January Release. Actually I was planning a card in bright colors and flowers but changed my mind after my niece suggested black or gray ombre for this background :). 


I white heat embossed the Abstract Cube on a watercolor paper panel and colored it in Licorice Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolor in an ombre fashion. I mixed the Licorice watercolor with a bit of Iridescent Medium to achieve the shimmer effect.


The Frame Builder: Botanical oval was cut three times from some white cardstock and once from a watercolor paper. I stacked them all together for some dimension. I mounted the background panel on a dark gray cardbase and added the Frame Builder: Botanical oval to it as shown in the picture. I colored the inner pieces using Licorice and Bubble Gum watercolor and inlaid them into their places.  


To finish off the card I scattered some gray Crystals on the card and covered the inlaid pieces with glitter using a clear glitter pen. You can see the shimmer of the Iridescent Medium and the clear glitter pen in the picture above. 


My last card for today is featuring Lush Vines background stamp and the word dies from Phrase Builder: you die set. 


For this beautiful background I used the Rainbow with Splatters washi tape. I adhered the purple and teal part of the washi tape on a white cardstock and white heat embossed the Lush Vines on it. I colored the leaves using V15, V17, BG13, BG18 and G28 Copic markers and cut the panel using a Diagonal Stitched Rectangles die.


The words were cut from some white cardstock three times using the Phrase Builder: you die set. I also cut the shadow layers from some vellum. I stacked the die cut words all together. 


I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and added the words to it. Glittery Stickles was added to the little berries for some shine. Some Jewels in teal and purple were my finishing touch!


That's it from me today! I hope I was able to show you the beauty of the new background stamps with my cards!

The Flower Challenge #41 - Add Leaves - Reminder

Hello everyone! Hope your having a wonderful weekend :)! 

It's time for a reminder post for the latest Flower Challenge. The theme for February is "Add Leaves". Of course floral image should be the main actor for your projects! 


To add leaves to my card I used the Foliage Frame die from Pinkfresh Studio.


To start off I stamped a bunch of flowers and leaves from Wild Flower Sketches set by Pinkfresh Studio in their dye inks. The leaves were stamped using the inks from Over the Hills ink set. For the flowers I used the yellow colors from Rise and Shine set, the pink colors of Fairy Dust set, purple ones from Soul of Provence set and the light blue ones from Morning Sky set. After stamping I cut them all using the coordinating dies and set them aside.


Next I cut the  Foliage Frame from some watercolor paper. To make the die cut frame sturdier I cut one more frame from some heavyweight white cardstock and adhered them together. I the colored the frame using Key Lime and Emerald City watercolor.

While the frame was drying, I prepared the cardbase. I ink blended the border of the cardbase in Grassy Knoll and Key Lime and splattered Key Lime watercolor and opaque white ink on it.


The word hello was cut using Sentiment Suite: Hello die set , also by Pinkfresh Studio, from some white cardstock which I ink blended in the same green colors in an ombre fashion. To add some shine I clear heat embossed the die cut sentiment two times and adhered it on the cardbase.

To add the little flowers from Wild Flower Sketches set I arranged them on the bottom part of the Foliage Frame. I then added the frame to the cardbase using foam adhesives.
To finish off the card I scattered some clear iridescent sequins.


That's it from my side! Please don't forget to visit The Flower Challenge blog for more inspiration from my amazingly talented team mates!

Thank you so much for looking ! I'd love to see your entry in our gallery!
Have a great day! 
Hugs,
TaeEun

Seize the Birthday #183 - Show Me Your White Space

Hello everyone!

It's quite a busy day on my blog today :)! I'm popping in again to share a DT card for the latest Seize the Birthday challenge with you!  Our new Topping for the next fortnight says " Show me your white space" ! Our lovely team mate, Barbara has chosen this one!


I tried to keep my card CAS :) ! I used a new die from Pinkfresh Studio, called Frame Builder: Botanical Triangle, as a wrap for my little wildflower bouquet. 


I stamped a bunch of flowers and leaves from Wild Flower Sketches set by Pinkfresh Studio in their dye inks. The leaves were stamped in the minty colors of Garden Stroll ink set. For the flowers I used the pink colors of Fairy Dust set, purple ones from Soul of Provence set and the light blue ones from Morning Sky set. After stamping I cut them all using the coordinating dies and set them aside. 


I cut the triangle with the leaves three times from some white cardstock using Frame Builder: Botanical Triangle and stacked them together. I adhered the triangle on a white cardbase. I colored the inner pieces of the leaves in Copic G 02 and G17 and inlaid them into their places.  I then arranged the bouquet as shown in the picture and added it to the card. I added a pink bow to the bouquet. The sentiment is from Folk Hummingbird set which I stamped in black directly on the cardbase.  I finished off the card with some soft pink Jewels.


That was my DT card! Hope I was able to inspire you to play along!

Please stop by Seize the Birthday blog to get more inspiration from my teamies and our Surprise party guest  Joyce Mehrberg from Cards by the Sea!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!
Have a great one!
Hugs,
TaeEun

The Ton February 2020 Release


Hello and Welcome to The Ton February 2020 Release post! 

The Ton is releasing eight new stamp designs and one standalone alphabet die today! 

Peony Memories set is available in the cardmaking and in the scrapbooking version. It is a 9x12" set with 6 peony flowers and leave clusters which can be easily layered with the help of the special layering marks on the stamp and the coordinating die cuts all of the images at once! Quick Labels set includes lots of small labels which you can cut using the coordinating die with one single cut. Also we have a outlined floral set, called Lovely Lily. Some unique sentiment sets are debuting today too which will be a great addition to the Fill it In sentiments set from our Anniversary Release. Roma Alphas and the Modern Alphas Coverplate die are great basic supplies for your paper craft! 







* New Release orders will begin shipping on 2/21.

I've made two cards. Let's take a look!
For my first card I used Peony Memories Cardmaking set and Confetti Borders set.


To start off I stamped the three layers of the peonies in Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria hybrid ink and the leaves in Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz and Light Onyx. I cut the images using the coordinating die and set them aside.


For the background I stamped the starry confetti border from Confetti Borders set in the same pink inks like the peonies. I stamped the ombre confetti two times as shown in the picture leaving a strip in the middle of the panel. I silver heat embossed the large sentiment and the small one was stamped in Light Onyx.


I mounted the background panel flat on a light gray cardbase and arranged the flower cluster on it. I finished off the card with some Glass Slippers round confetti sequins.


The second card is showcasing the Lovely Lily and the 2d Ed Fill it In set. As I haven't got the Lovely Lily stamp yet, I used the digital image.


I printed the Lovely Lily on Canson watercolor paper. I added several leaves by stamping a solid leaf from Large Florals: Carnation set in Soft Garden after masking the flower image. I then colored it using Karin Brushmarkers. I added details on the petals using Polychromos colored pencils.


After the coloring was completed I stamped the confetti border on the left side in the colors from Crystal Garden collection. I cut the panel using the Double Stitched Rectangle die. The sentiment from 2d Ed Fill it In set was stamped in Noir and I added the filling sentiment by gold heat embossing. I finished off the card by scattering some sequins from Lemon Chiffon sequins and Bell's Dress Couture Mix.



Giveaway:
We're giving away one stamp set of choice from our February Release. To qualify, leave a comment on each blog (The Ton Stamps blog and each design team member ).
*The comment period ends on 2/17. The winner will be announced on 2/18.
