Hello and happy Friday, everyone! I'm so glad to meet you all, Pinkfresh friends! I'm TaeEun and it's my very first blog post after being announced as a new Card design team member here at Pinkfresh Studio. I'm so excited and happy to be here in this amazing team and hope to be able to inspire you with my card creations in the future!
Today I have three cards to share with you. Two of them are a set made using Adorable Frames washi tape as background and floral clusters from Floral Elements and Floral Cluster stamp sets as focal points.
Let's take a look at the first card. It is a one layer card.
Usually it's hard to stamp or color on a washi tape, as it has kinda non-porous surface. Lately I've got to know a technique with which coloring or stamping on washi tape is possible. Priming a surface using gesso is a frequently used method in mixed media and it works also with washi tapes!
I made a A2 sized panel by adhering the Adorable Frames washi tape on white cardstock. I then applied white gesso on it. After the gesso was dry, I could stamp the big floral cluster from Floral Cluster stamp set on it in brown archival ink. I then colored the image using Pitt Artist pen and could even add some details using colored pencils.
The sentiment is also from Floral Cluster stamp set. The big "grateful" was gold heat embossed and the small sentiments were stamped in the same brown archival ink like the image. To finish off I added some iridescent sequins.
First I made the background panel by adhering the Adorable Frames washi tape on a A2 sized white cardstock. The little floral clusters are gold heat embossed on some black sketch paper and colored using Luminance colored pencils. They are cut using the coordinating dies. I had them already done as I made my cards for June Washi Release Blog Hop :).
I adhered Matte Gold washi tape on the four sides of the cardbase. I narrowed down the front panel and rounded the corners of it and foam mounted the panel on the cardbase.
The sentiment from Floral Cluster set was gold heat embossed on some vellum. I cut it using the zigzag die from Simple Edgers die set and added it to the front panel. I then arranged the small floral clusters on it using some foam adhesives. I scattered some pretty sequins and my card was finished.
My last card for today is a rainbow thank you card :).
To create the rainbow background I used Copic refills. I dropped the inks on a Yupo panel and added some droplets of blending solution on it for more texture. Before the panel was completely dry I covered the panel with gold foil and pressed it with a brayer to add some golden accents.
I white heat embossed the floral cluster from Just A Little Lovely set on some vellum and colored the image on the back of the vellum using Copic markers. I colored it in rainbow colors. To keep the transition of the rainbow colors like the background, I used the background panel as my guide while coloring the image.
After the coloring was done I cut the image using the coordinating die and adhered it on the background panel. The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped on the card in a black archival ink.
That's all from my side for today! I hope you enjoyed looking my cards and got some inspiration!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
