For today, I am showcasing the Floral Geo Cover Plate that I used to create embossed look background. Then, without removing the cover plate, I blended various pink inks. Hey, if I can use the cover plate as embosser and stencil, why not. Great way to get more out of your dies. Next, I stamped the image from Friendship Blooms set, die cut and color. Arrange on the card. Seriously, this is a pretty quick card.I complete this card in less than 30 minutes. I love the soft colors on this card. :)

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Day 2

 Hi everyone. Welcome to day 2 of SugarPea Designs sweet peek week. I am excited to share my project for today's sneak peek as it brings me down memory lane.




As a child of the 80s, this Vintage Telephone dies totally reminds me of hours of time spent chatting with my friends. Kind of funny to think that back in those days I can talk for hours on the phone and now, I prefer face to face meeting than talking on the phone.

To make this card more fun, I add rainbow color chevron using the new Chevron Cover Plate. You know what my favorite thing about this phone? It's the number from the Call Me stamp set. The number fit perfectly inside the rotary part of the die cut phone. It's all about the little details for me. Here's a peek of the Call Me set since I only use the number from this set.

We have quite plenty of fun & cute sets for this release that I am excited to share with you. All of the products that we will be introducing this week will be available for purchase starting this Friday, January 22nd at 2PM EST in the SPD Store.




For today, I am showcasing Sweet Swans & Swan Love. This set capture what I love of SugarPea collection. They always have something sweet & simply adorable. This set is proof.

The Ton 6th Anniversary Release Hop


Hi all. Happy new year. I can't  believe that I haven't been blogging since October 2020. Gosh, my blog really got quite neglected. So sorry about that. I do still make cards regularly, but I just been posting them more on my Instagram account.

Well, I am glad to be back on blog land as we celebrating The Ton 6th anniversary. For this celebration. The Ton is releasing 7 new stamp/dies and 4 new standalone dies. I am excited for this release & really looking forward for more creativity in 2021.

Without further delay, let's get on with the card, shall we?



For my card, I am showcasing the fun Ditsy Bits set. And, I have to say, the Quilted Coverplate A2 die is a set that surprise me. At first, I thought it just standard quilted design, till I actually use it. It cuts little hearts instead of just dots or stitch impression. I don't know about you, but these little hearts gets me.  I was like, oooh, look at that, pretty!




To make the hearts stand out a bit more, I back the light blue cardstock with dark teal cardstock, as you can see on the pic above. For the flowers, I stamped them with Hollywood Star, Soft Garnet, Cosmopolitan Pink and Soft Garden. Once stamped, I die cut them using the coordinating Ditsy Bits die. Arrange on the card and finish by adding sentiment.

For my next card, I am using the gorgeous Radiant Roses Standalone Layering Dies.



I just love the layers on  this rose set. It's beautiful and I just love playing with this. I can see more roses cards coming. I always enjoy playing with what I consider classic, timeless set. This set definitely fall  under this category & I love, love this set. maybe because I associated it with my mom's favorite flower. 

I die cut all the pieces from watercolor cardstock and color each layers deeper. To ground the flowers, i add a scallop frame, that I die cut using the 2nd largest frame from Scalloped A2 Nested dies. Arrange flower & leaves, then add sentiment using the new Ribbon General set stamped with Peach Blossom & Coralline and die cut it with coordinating dies.

There you go, 2 fun cards too start my 2021 blog post. ;) 

GIVEAWAY

Fun stuff! We have a little giveaway for this anniversary release. One winner will be randomly chosen from the comments on the blog hop and will be announced on The Ton's Blog on Friday, January 22.

The Ton Winter Die Flash Release


 Hi all and welcome to The Ton Winter Flash Die release. Today The Ton is releasing 4 new standalone dies that I think are just perfect to celebrate the cooler weather.

For my card, I am showcasing the Holiday Coffee Dies.



To start, I die cut the background using Grid A2 Coverplate die. Then I die cut all the coffee cup elements. My favorite is the snowflake die & embossed sleeve. It added such fun details. Before putting them together, I ink blended the cup with Soft Garden, Cali Blue, Hollywood Star & Coral Cavern. Adhere the cups to the card base with foam adhesive.

Next, for the sentiment I used Easy Expressions Holiday set and finished the card by adding some Blue Ice Couture sequins mix.

This card actually come together pretty quick and I know my coffee loving friend would love this card. My teammates has created some more fun inspiration for this release. Please check out their blogs for more ideas. Thank you all for stopping by here and my your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers...

The Ton October Release

 Hi all and welcome  to The Ton holiday release. The Ton is releasing 14 New Standalone Dies and 2 New Stamps and Coordinating Dies. And, I am honestly super excited for this release as so many of the sets allowed me to create clean & simple cards that I just loved.

Let's get on with it right away. For my 1st card, I am showcasing the pretty & fun Holiday Border dies




The cool thing about this die sets, you can re-arrange the borders to your heart desire. You want the snowflakes border on top? Then place that border on top. No likey? Switch it around. In my opinion, tis is just brilliant. It's the simple thing for me. I love having that option.

I started by watercoloring a panel of watercolor cardstock, let dry and then run it through my Gemini. Tips, to keep the border dies from moving, I taped my Gemini plastic, magnet & spacer together to keep them flat and also taped the dies together with washi tape. You could also use blue tape.




Once that done, trim and adhere the panela nd the pieces to card base. Finished by adding some sequins mixes and die cut the word joy using Modern Alphas Updated.

For my next card, I blended Soft GardenBright Fern & Bright Emerald ink on a piece of cardstock and then die cut it with Pine Tree Dies. Instead of just making 1 card, I decided to use each tree separately to make several cards. Hey, any excuse to get the Christmas card stash growing quickly, I'll use it. Hah! :) I sprayed the tree with white ink and also added some dew drops.

To ground my scene, I die cut the scallop frame using Scalloped Nested A2 Dies. Then I simply arrange the tree and the deer. Oh yes, the deer is from Deer Coverplate Die (another favorite from this release!).




Sentiment from an older Holiday Ornaments set. I used the other trees die cut for the card below.




And, last but not least, this card I made using the Holiday Border dies, Deer Coverplate dies & Bold Alphas Lower Dies




Well peeps, I think this is quite a record for me to share this many cards in one day. There are a lot more inspiration from my teammates. Please check out their blogs for more fun inspiration and thank you all so much for stopping by here. Have a blessed week everyone.

Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Afternoon Release Blog Hop

 


Hi peeps! Welcome to day 1 of Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Afternoon blog hop. I am super excited for this release as here are so many gorgeous and fun sets to share.

One of my favorite from this release is the gorgeous Harvest Bloom designed by my dear friend, Emily Midgett.




Here on my 1st card, I went with bright colors. I stamped and heat embossed the image and then watercolor them. Trim the panel and adhere to card base. For sentiment, I die cut the word hugs from Simple Sentiments Eyelet three times and layered them. Finished by stamping and heat embossing the word Sending You from Kisses set.



I also want to share a couple of the cards for this release that I have shared on Instagram. I've been sharing more cards there then on the blog. You can find me on Instagram HERE.

You can see how much I love the Harvest Blooms since I made a card for the sneak peek and for the hop.



This card below was so much fun to make. I combine 5  sets from this release on this card. I used Slimline Sentiments Blanket dies, Little Red Wagon dies, Nuts About You stamp & dies set, Itty Bitty Leaves dies & Let’s Hang Out stamp & dies set. Yay, me! Hah.... Sorry, I have to pat myself on the back, since it's very rare where I used so many sets in 1 card.

The Ton Slimline Die Release

 


Hi all and welcome to The Ton Slimline Die release party. The Ton is releasing 14 Slimline Dies and 1 stamp with coordinating die. Seriously, when I received my package it felt like Christmas. So many cool & fund dies!!

When I saw the sneak peek of the dies, this one below, the Slimline Candy Cane Stripe Coverplate Die totally caught my attention & I just had to use it first.



I know right away that I want to pair it with the recently released Poinsettia Wishes and Berry Branches. I stamped the Poinsettia with Soft Garden and Bright Fern. The leaves were stamped with Crystal Pewter & Smoky Quartz. In case you're wondering why they looks greenish gray it's because apparently I didn't clear my stamp good enough & still have a bit of green on it when I stamped the gray inks. I decided to keep them since the color looks unique enough. Hah! Why waste it, right?

Then I decided to soften the overall design by adding the outline Poinsettia & candle from an oldie but goodie set called Fresh Cut Poinsettia. For the berry I stamped the branch with Aspen Cocoa and the berries with Coralline & Lipstick Red



I also used a metallic watercolor to add some shimmer & sparkle to the Poinsettias. I am a bit obsessed in playing with metallic watercolor lately. To finish the card, I used sentiment from Easy Expressions Holiday.

I was so into playing with the dies, that I decided to make another card. This time I used the Slimline Star Coverplate Dies.



I ink blended Soft Garden, Lemon Drop and Azurite for the background and run it through the dies. Next, I used one of the Slimline Nested Pierced Dies to trim the star panel and adhere it to  the card base.

At first I was going to pair it with some flowers, but then I feel the background is busy enough that I should keep the rest simple. So, I decided to play with several of The Ton alphabets set. I used Floral Alphas, Skinny Alphas Coverplate dies & Modern Alphas Coverplate dies. Finished the card by adding some mix dew drops.

I know slim card is trending right now. Are you into slim card, too? I used to make long card every now & then, but usually at smaller size (3.5" x 7"). These cards above are slightly longer. It is fun though trying out different sizes.

Well peeps, that's all from me today. For more inspiration for this release, please check out what the team has created. Thank you so much for stopping by here. Have a wonderful weekend all!!

SugarPea Designs New Release Day

 Hi peeps. Happy Friday. I am sooo ready for the weekend. How about you? And, guess what? All the products we've been showcasing for SugarPea Designs are available in store today. 

So, what's on your wish list? In case you need more inspiration, we're sharing even more projects today.


I just had to make another card using my favorite seta, SugarCut Open Book & Beautiful Books stamp set. If last time I went all soft, for today I decided to use bolder, brighter colors. I was inspired by my teammates, Tatiana. Her rainbow row of books HERE is simply fun and eye catching.

For my card, I used the rainbow row of books as background for the open pages. For the glass part of the glasses I used vellum and of course, you could always make any card a bit sweeter by adding a cute critter. Here, I added the squirrel from Hey Fall set.This card has 2 things that I love. Books & critters! 

On a perfect day, I love sitting outside reading and if I am lucky, I also get to watch the squirrel from our tree zooming on the fence and Abby one of our dog, would run along under. Hah... hubby think the squirrel is teasing Abby on purpose, because often after running on the fence it would jump to the tree and just stare at Abby. A challenge perhaps? Or just curious? Hah!

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Day 4

Hi all. Happy Thursday and welcome to day 4 of SugarPea Designs sweet peek week. Today's set is all about cozy corner of your house in my opinion.

Introducing Let's Stay Home. I can't help but base my card on my favorite chartreuse wide chair in my living room. It's a pop of color in our neutral color home and definitely my favorite find when we were furnishing the house.




I decided to do a window card using the new Card Front Elements 3. I die cut the windows first. Then stamped, colored and arranged the pieces behind the window. I decided to layered the plants so the front of the card is not too plain. I just make sure they aligned exactly. 

I die cut the sentiment from a black cardstock and watercolor it with metallic watercolor that my friend recently got me hooked into. Check out my Instagram (under wirianta) to see the short clip showing the pretty shimmer of the sentiment.
