Hello everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! Ashwini chose the new Toppings option for the next fortnight and she wants for us to use an embossing folder for our projects!


I used a 3D embossing folder by Nellie’s Choice for my card which is called ” Branch with Flowers“.


I embossed a watercolor paper panel with the embossing folder and colored the embossed image using Karin brush markers. For the flowers I used Cyan and Violet Blue. I picked the Violet Blue with a water brush and colored the outer edge of the petals first. I then added the Cyan on the center of the flower and blended the two colors in the middle of each petal.


After the coloring was done I splattered Violet Blue on the panel and a bit of clear water on the flowers to dab it off with a paper towel.


The sentiment is from Better with Age (30-822) set by Penny Black. I stamped it in black directly on the colored panel.

I mounted the panel flat on a white cardbase and added some clear sequins to finish off the card!


Please stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from our Surprise Party guest Melanie Hungerford from Cards by Melanie and my talented team mates!

Thank you so much for looking! Hope you’ll play along  !

  1. Lovely, TaeEun … I’m sure mine will look like what the cat ate yesterday, but I’ll give it a go! If I have success, I’ll send it over to the challenge!

  2. What?? What is that?? I mean you can just take anything thrown at you and just come out with a perfect piece like that?? Not fair!! 😀 😀
    Extraordinarily beautiful TaeEun! You are definitely gifted, my friend. 🙂

    1. I told her that I had run out of words to use to compliment her cards so I was going to start using Spanish. haha 😂😂😂 Warm greetings from San Antonio, Texas. 💜

  3. This is a gorgeous 3D floral embossing folder, beautifully coloured TaeEun and it has lots of dimension, and I love the sentiment and the pretty spattering too. x

  4. Girl……….that is all that I can manage to say. I have finally run out of words to use to say how awesome you and your cards are. 💜 You are awesome!

  5. Wow, you colored the embossed panel beautifully. I didn’t know it was an embossed flower until I read your post. Your coloring is always amazing.

  6. That is amazing, the colors are stunning together and the splatters just give it such a pretty look. (Adding those always makes me so nervous – I’ve ended up with some really big drops instead of perfect splatters like yours!) Thanks for inviting me as your guest this month at Seize the Birthday!

  7. I thought this was stamped and coloured! Amazing work TaeEun, those colours are so beautiful too, stunning card. Sorry for the late comment, technology issues…looking for a new laptop! Cathy x
