Poinsettia – ME

Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today, I organized all my holiday stamps from last year. I’ve been card making only for few years now, so I didn’t think I had so many! I went through a difficult time last holiday season with death in my family, and I wasn’t able to make many holiday cards. Therefore, I have many holiday stamp sets that were never used or used once or twice. This Mama Elephant’s Poinsettia stamp set is one of them. I think it’s such a beautiful set and I decided to color it for Day 17 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

ME_Poinsettia_FE1

 

I started the card by stamping the Poinsettia images and the sentiment (sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Pals stamp set)on Neenah 80lb. cardstock in Caviar Hybrid ink. Then, I colored them with Copic Markers. I used R89, R29, R27, R24, YG67, YG17, YG03, YG01, YG99, YR23, and Y17. I added some gold dots and lines with Gold Gel pen to add more interest. Then, I die cut the panel using the largest layer from the Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Next, I dressed up the edges of A2 sized white cardbase with Gold Glitter Adhesive Paper and adhered s slightly smaller red cardstock on top. I adhered the main panel using the foam tape and finished the card by adding some Matte Gold sequins and Nuvo Golden Sunset Glitter Drops.

Pink Magnolias

Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I was feeling bit down today due to my on-going health issue and I decided to make something pretty to cheer myself up! I chose The Ton‘s Magnificent Magnolias stamp set for my card today. I watercolored this beautiful image for the Day1 of the 2017 Fall Release Week. This time, I colored with my Copic Markers! I am also submitting this piece for the Day 16 of The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge!

Ton_Magnolia_Sept_FE1

I started off by stamping the Magnolia image on Neenah 80lb cardstock in Caviar Hybrid ink. Then I colored the image with R85, V000, YG99 TG95, YG13, YG03, YG01, BG11, BG10, B000 Copic markers. Then, I die cut using the largest layer from the Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered the panel on A2 sized pink card base. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut it down to a small banner and adhered it on the card. Next, I dressed up the card with Clear Rhinestone and Glass Slippers Round Confetti and the card was complete!

Hope my card inspired you to go crafty and creative this weekend. I truly believe coloring and creating something beautiful is very therapeutic.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!

Dot. B September Release Day2

Hello everyone! I’m super excited to share my first ever shadow box card using adorable digital stamp Goblin Animal from DotBstamp etsy shop. These images are designed by Eunji, one of my favorite artists!

Here is the card!

DotBstamp_Goblin_FE

I started the card by downloading and printing the Goblin images on 21% scale on my printer on a Neenah 80lb. cardstock. Then I colored the images with various Copic markers. When the coloring was done, I traced all images with journaling pen and fussy cut them out.

 

DotBstamp_Goblin_CE1

Then I moved on to making the shadow box. I used Shadow Box and Meadow Borders die sets from Lawn Fawn. I ink blended all the die cut images with Distress Inks and stenciled clouds on the background using the cloud border stencil from MFT. Next, I adhered all the images and die cuts on the shadow box card base and dressed it up with “hello” Word die cut and butterfly die cut (also from Lawn Fawn) on the front of the card.

Hope you enjoyed my project for today! It was so much fun coloring these cute goblins and making a shadow box card with them! Head on over to https://www.etsy.com/listing/544356396/goblin-animal?ref=shop_home_active_1  if you’d like to check out these adorable goblins in DotBstamp shop!

That’s all from me today! Have a fabulous day, everyone! Happy crafting!!!

Hope you’ve been enjoying the Fall 2017 Release new product reveals and inspirations from our team. I am so in love with all the new products and it was very difficult to pick which set to play with for today’s project. After giving it a good thought, I went with our new Cozy Poinsettia Stamp set and created 2 cards in different vairations.

Here’s the first one!

Ton_BH_RedGold_FE1

 

  • To start off, I stamped the Cozy Poinsettia on 2 corners of a watercolor cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed in gold. I stamped the 2nd set on a black cardstock for the next project.
  • I colored the image with Stabilo 68 pens, blending out the colors from the center of the flower toward the end of petals with clean clear water. The colors I used are: #50, #19, #63, and #33)
  • I let it dry completely and splattered some gold ink all over the panel. I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.25″ and went ahead and rounded 2 corners with the Corner Chomper.
  • Then, I stamped the sentiment on vellum in Versamark ink and heat embossed in gold. I trimmed it down to a banner, wrapped it around and secured it on the back with a piece of tape.
  • Next, I adhered our Glossy Fine Gold Glitter Adhesive paper on a white A2 card base to add golden border around the card. I adhered white fun foam on the back of the main panel and popped it up on the card.
  • I adhered some Medallion Gold sequins to finish the card.

 

Ton_BH_RedGold_CE1

 

Ton_BH_RedGold_CE2


 

I went with gold&black for the 2nd card!

Ton_BH_goldblack_FE1

 

  • I stamped the Cozy Poinsettia image exactly the same way as the 1st card, on a sturdy black cardstock.
  • I colored the image with with Gansai Tambi Starry Night watercolors. I blended the colors out with clear clean water using water brushes. I am pleased how gorgeous these watercolors are. I let the panel dry completely and trimmed it down to 4″x5.5″.
  • Next, I made a sentiment banner, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I adhered it across the banner and adhered the ends on the back. I decorated the edges with Glossy Fine Gold Glitter Adhesive paper.
  • Then, I decorated the side edges of a black A2 cardstock with our Yellow Gold Burnished Foil Tape and popped up the main panel with black fun foam.
  • I added some Medallion Gold sequins and the card was complete!

Today we are revealing the rest of the products for our new Fall 2017 Release!


 

First up, I created a cozy winter scene combining elements from various new stamp sets revealed today.

Ton_Day4_fireplace_FE1

  • I started by stamping images from multiple stamp sets released today. Christmas tree: Holiday Ballet stamp set (Coordinating Dies); Christmas socks, Fire log, dog, mat: Fireplace Holiday Accessories stamp set (Coordinating Dies); chandelier, fireplace brick, couch: Fireplace Accessories stamp set (Coordinating Dies); Girl: City Girls Snow Day stamp set (Coordinating Dies). I stamped all the images in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink, colored with various Copic markers. I didn’t have the Coordinating Dies at the moment, so I just fussy cut them out.
  • I also stamped the background, the Scenes: Fireplace cling stamp in Caviar Hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers. I stamped the Chandelier on top of the panel in Versamark ink and heat embossed with glitter powder. I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.25″ and adhered it on a black A2 card base.
  • I adhered all the elements, including the sentiment (from City Girls Snow Day stamp set), heat embossed in white on black cardstock.
  • For the finishing touches, I added some dots with white and gold gel pens, adhered Clear Rhinetones on the chandelier, and also adhered sequins from our new Deck the Halls Couture Mix.

Ton_Day4_fireplace_CE2

I did scene building for the 2nd card also. For this card, I combined our new sets and the older scene background cling stamp.

Ton_Day4_shopping_FE1

For the 3rd card, I created a traditional Christmas card combining our new Christmas Tree stamp set (Coordinating Dies) and last year’s background cling stamp, the Holiday Border Cling Background stamp.

Ton_Day4_tree_FE1

  • First off, I stamped all the layers from our new Christmas Tree stamp set on a white smooth cardstock to build the Christmas tree. The ink colors I used are Soft Garden, Bright Fern, Basil Mojito, and Dark Roast Dye. The ribbons and the ornaments are all stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with red or gold powder. I didn’t have the Coordinating die at the moment, so I just fussy cut the tree and put it aside.
  • Then, I stamped the Holiday Border Cling Background stamp on a white smooth cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.25″ and adhered it on to a white A2 card base (edges decorated with Glossy Fine Gold Glitter adhesive paper).
  • I stamped the sentiment from our new Holly Branch stamp set on vellum and heat embossed in gold. I cut it down to a banner secured it around the card.
  • I adhered some Medallion Gold sequins and our new Deck the Halls Couture Mix to finished off the card.

Today we are revealing 4 stamp sets, the coordinating dies, 1 Rubber Bling stamp, and 1 Couture Mix!


 

For the 1st card for today, I’m showcasing our new Holiday Love Poinsettia Stamp set.

Ton_Day3_love_FE1

  • Started the card by stamping the beautiful poinsettia image from our new Holiday Love Poinsettia stamp set on kraft cardstock in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored the image with various Copic markers (R39, R37, R35, YG67, YG17, YG03, and YR23)
  • I stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink.
  • I added some dots on the image with gold glitter gel pen and adhered the panel on a black cardstock.
  • I adhered Glossy Fine Gold Glitter Adhesive paper on  black fun foam and die cut using the 1st and 2nd largest die from Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to make the frame. I adhered this golden sparkly frame on the card and finished by adding some Medallion Gold Sequins.

Ton_Day3_love_CE1


 

For the second card, I’m showcasing our new Occasion Confetti and one of our Incentive products, the Christmas Mini Cluster stamp set. I created a one layer card, drawing frame with the journaling pen. It’s one of my favorite designs when I play with mini stamps. Please note that incentive products will not be available for purchase until October.

Ton_Day3_confetti_FE1

 

  • I started the card by stamping the Christmas Mini Cluster stamp on a white smooth cardstock in Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored the image with Copic Markers (R24, R29, R89, and YR23) and added some gold and white dots with gel pens.

Ton_Day3_Confetti_CE1

  • Then, I drew a frame around it using the T-ruler and journaling pen. I also stamped the Confetti image from our new Occasion Confetti stamp set. I masked off the frame to make sure the confetti image lays inside the frame. I added bit of depth by coloring the edges of the frame with gray Copic Markers (C3, C1, and C00).
  • I stamped the sentiment in our Basil Mojito Dye ink and heat embossed with the  clear powder. I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.25″ and adhered it on a red A2 card base.
  • I added some Matte Gold, Glass Slippers, and Deep Sage sequins for the finishing touch!

Ton_Day3_Confetti_CE2


 

For the 3rd card for today, I created a halo effect around the gorgeous banner image from our new Poinsettia Banner stamp set.

Ton_Day3_banner_FE1

 

  • I started the card by stamping the Poinsettia Banner image on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed in silver.
  • Then, I ink blended Italian Denim Dye and True Navy Dye ink around the image. I did not mask the image, but carefully added on the colors with ink blending tool. I splattered some white opaque watercolor, waited for it to dry, and added more blue inks around the edges. This process was so quick and creates such wow effect, I hope you’d give it a try!
  • I colored the Poinsettia Banner image with Zig markers (Gray Brown and Blue), blending out the pigments with Clear sparkle pen.
  • I added few dots with blue glitter gel pen and adhered Clear Rhinestones (my new favorite, BTW!) and our new Milky Way Couture Mix for the finishing touches.

Today we are revealing 5 stamp sets, the coordinating dies, and couple of Couture Mix!


 

Here’s the 1st card for today!

Ton_Day2_Tree_FE1

I created a winter snowy forrest scene featuring our new Mini Pine Tree stamp set. This set may be little in size, but it’s an amazing set perfect for scene building! It’s so fun and easy to layer!

  • I started off by stamping the Mini Pine tree 3 times on a watercolor cardstock. Then, I colored in the sky and the ground with Zig markers. Colors I used are: Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, Mid Gray, and Gray Brown. I let it dry and splattered white opaque watercolor all over the panel.
  • I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.5″ and stamped the sentiment (from our new Christmas Wreath Builder stamp set) in Noir Dye ink.

Ton_Day2_Tree_CE1

  • I adhered strips of Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive paper on all 4 edges of a white A2 card base.
  • Next, I wrapped jute twine around the panel and popped it up on the card base using the foam tape.
  • Finished the card by adding some sequins from our new Frosted Spearmint Couture Mix.

Ton_Day2_Tree_CE2


 

Here’s the 2nd card showcasing our new Star Trails stamp set!

Ton_Day2_Star_FE1

This set is so versatile and perfect for scene building! I paired it with our Mountains stamp set and created a night scene.

  • I started the card by creating the night sky background. I used Gansai Tambi Watercolors (dark blue and black) on a watercolor cardstock. I also spattered white watercolor.
  • Then I stamped the sentiment and the stars (both clusters and individuals) in Versamark ink and heat embossed in gold. I adhered the panel on a black A2 cardstock.
  • Next, I moved on to the mountain. I stamped the layers in Crystal Pewters, Smoky Quartz, and Light Onyx Dye ink. I made 2 mountains to stack them on top of each other.
  • I added some True Navy Dye ink along the edges of the mountains and adhered them on the card. I popped up the bottom mountain with some foam tape.

Ton_Day2_Star_CE1


 

 


 

For the 3rd card for today, I attempted to create a Christmas card with a vintage feel, showcasing our new Christmas Wreath Builder stamp set. It was incredibly easy to layer this set!

Ton_Day2_wreath_FE1

  • To start off, I stamped the Haute Striped Cling stamp in Valentine Red Dye and Lipstick Red Dye ink on a smooth white cardstock to create the background. I used MISTI stamping tool to stamp multiple times. I die cut the panel using the largest die from our Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  • Then I moved on to stamping the wreath and the bow from our new Christmas Wreath Builder stamp set. The ink colors I used for the wreath are: Soft Garden, Basil Mojito, and Dark Roast. For the bow, I used Valentine Red Dye, Lipstick Red Dye, and Dark Roast, and Noir Dye ink. I didn’t have the dies at the time, so I fussy cut them out.
  • I stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink.
  • On a A2 kraft card base, I popped up the background panel using fun foam and adhered the wreath and the bow.
  • I added Matte Gold sequins to the card for the finishing touch!

Ton_Day2_wreath_CE1


 

For the 4th and final card for today, I created a cool Glow-in-the-dark card, featuring our Star Trails stamp set. This is was one of the card that made me squeal! lol!

Ton_GlowStar_FE1

  • I started the card by watercoloring the background. I colored with the 2 darkest blues from Gansai Tambi watercolors on a watercolor cardstock. I let it dry completely and die cut the panel using the largest die from Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  • After playing around with the placement of the elements, I stamped the star trail image and the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with white powder. Then I stamped it again (using MISTI) and heat embossed with glow-in-the-dark embossing powder this time. I adhered the panel on a white A2 card base.
  • I stamped and heat embossed the bear image from Honey Bears stamp set the same way on another watercolor cardstock. I colored the bear with Zig markers (Gray Brown, Light Gray, and Light Pink. I die cut the image using the Coordinating Dies and popped it up on the card with foam tape.
  • I finished the card by adding sequins from our new New Year Couture Mix and some Clear Rhinestones.
