Holiday Elements - Watercoloring | TaeEun Yoo

Hello Pinkfresh friends! Have you enjoyed the reveal of our September 2022 Release? There are Blog hop and Instagram hop running to celebrate this huge holiday release. So hope you will join us and get all the inspiration ! 

At the September 2022 Release a beautiful Washi set was introduced. This Holiday Elements Washi tape has coordinating stamp, stencil and die sets. 
For today’s cards I no line watercolored the Holiday Elements. I loved the coloring process and it was truly therapeutic as always! 

I started by stamping the whole Holiday Elements stamp in Peach Fuzz on some watercolor paper. I then watercolored the images mainly in purple and green. After the coloring was done I cut the images using the coordinating die.

For the first card I used the poinsettia images from the Holiday Elements set.

To create the background I first watercolored a panel loosely in light green and cut it using the Elongated Lattice Coverplate die. I adhered the small negative die cut pieces on a white cardbase. I cut three more Elongated Lattice from some white cardstock, layered them all together and added the lattice from the watercolored panel on top. I then placed the lattice on the cardbase. 

Next I cut a white circle frame using the Fancy Circles die and a circle from some vellum. I adhered the vellum circle on the center of the lattice and foam mounted the circular frame. 
The poinsettia wreath was then added to the circle frame with more foam tape and lastly the solo poinsettia image to the wreath. 

The sentiment is also from the Holiday Elements set. I heat embossed it in gold and fussy cut it before I adhered it on the center of the wreath. 
I finished off the card with a few Lavender Jewels and Gold Metallic Pearls. 

I made the second card by arranging the gift boxes, the mistletoe and the gnome from the Holiday Elements set. 

I integrated my sentiment into the background by cutting the JOY from the center of an A2 sized Mixed Media paper panel. I ink blended the perimeter of the panel in Soft Lilac and Candy Violet and dry embossed the panel using the Dotted Lattice Coverplate die. Next I splattered white watercolor on the panel and let it dry. 

I adhered a piece of white glitter cardstock on the center of a white cardbase, where the cut out JOY would be and foam mounted the background panel on it. 

Next I placed the Holiday Elements on the card as shown and finished off the card with some Glacier Jewels. 

That’s it from me for today. Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!

Wishing you a crafty weekend!

TaeEun
