SSS Hello Beautiful Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track.

As you can see, Simon’s exclusive Hello Beautiful products seem to give me spring as a gift! Beautiful flowers bloomed in my craft room, haha! For my first two floral cards, I used the beautiful Blooming Meadow set along with the Spring Birds and the Bitty Birdhouse set.

I started by stamping pretty birds from the Spring Birds set on white cardstock using Memento Desert Sand dye ink. I then coloured the stamped images with Copic markers, die cut them with the matching dies. Next, I die cut bird house from watercolour paper and then ink blended all the pieces using Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs Distress inks.


For the floral wreath, I stamped flowers & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set onto watercolour paper using Memento Desert Sand dye ink first, and then coloured them with several Distress inks. I used Festive Berries & Fired Brick for red flowers, Seedless Preserves for purple flower, Fossilized Amber & Wild Honey for yellow flowers and Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive for leaves.



For this CAS floral card, I simply stamped flower petals & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set using several SSS dye inks – I used Lipstick Red & Rose Apple dye inks for red flowers, Lavender for purple flower, Clementine for yellow flower and Scuba for leaves. I stamped outlines with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. I then stamped the sentiment in Onyx Black, added tiny butterflies around the flowers.


These spring flowers and birds are so lovely, aren’t they?!!


For my last card for the hop, I used the Lavender Garden set. I stamped flowers & watering can onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, then watercoloured them with Distress inks.

I hope my cards brighten your day!

Altenew Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew February 2021 Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Karen Brown’s blog you are on the right track!

I love Altenew layering flower dies. It is definitely one of the brilliant ways to express beautiful floral cards!!

For my first two floral cards, I’m featuring the Climber Flowers Die Set along with the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder.

I started by dry embossing on A2 sized white paper panel using the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder. I then applied a light green ink on the centre of the background panel, added green & blue ink splatters all around the panel.

I die cut all pieces from blue & green coloured cardstock using the Climber Flowers Die Set, and then glued them as shown in the picture using a fine tip glue pen. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Flower Arrangement Die Set.

With this second floral card, I used the Modern Squares 3D Embossing Folder for my background panel. And I added red, yellow and blue flowers on the right side of the card.



For my last card for the hop, I used the Flower Bunch Simple Layering Stencil Set. I started with the foliage, then the flowers using several dye inks.
Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades
Flowers: Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee and Moon Rock
Cone: Lavender Fields, Deep Iris

Altenew Love & Friendship Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Love & Friendship Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Tina Smith’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I am featuring the new Queen Anemone along with other Altenew goodies – as everyone knows, Altenew is the best for layering flower stamps!

I started by dry embossing on A2 sized white cardstock using the new Organic Linen 3D Embossing Folder. I then die cut the Leafy Wreath from white cardstock twice, inked one of the Leafy Wreath die cuts with Crushed Olive Distress ink. I added green ink splatters.

For beautiful flowers, I stamped layering anemones with Red Sunset dye ink set. I used Blush for base, Rouge for second layer and Crimson for outline layer. For leaves, I used Green Fields dye ink set.

For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Thank you” from metallic gold cardstock using the Flower Arrangement die set.

For my second cards, I used the Fresh Cut Roses stamp set along with the Watercolor 36 pan set.

I stamped flower images from the Fresh Cut Roses set onto watercolour paper panel using Rocky Shore dye ink. I then coloured the stamped images using Watercolor 36 pan set:
(Roses) mixed with Cotton Candy and Coral Berry and little bit of Paper Bag
(Leaves) mixed with Frayed Leaf and Espresso and Bamboo.

Take a closer look:

I heat embossed the flower in white first, and then watercoloured it – I used Crimson for petals, Forest Glades & Bamboo for leaves. Red flower and dotted washi tape are the best combination of Altenew floral cards. :D
