Happy New Year, crafty friends! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!
Today, I will share 4 cards using Love You (December-released) products only because Love You, Too products arrived late but don’t worry! I will post new projects using Love You, Too products from next week. So, shall we get started? :D
For my first card, I used the You Have My Heart & the With All My Heart along with other SSS goodies. I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangles die set first. I stamped flowers using Antique Linen Distress ink, watercoloured the stamped images using Distress inks: Red flowers: Festive Berries, Candied Apple and Fired Brick Leaves: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive Flower buds: Wild Honey / Branches: Vintage Photo
Once the watercoloured floral panel was dry, I added sentiment & lovely bird couple as shown in the picture using foam tape. I love this adorable bird couple. :D
For my second card, I used the Splendid Leaves embossing folder & the Floral Card Front die. I applied Distress inks to the inside of an embossing folder first, and then spritzed the inked area with water. After that, I ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine – Ohhhh, I love a watercolour look!!
I die cut the Floral Card Front from thick white cardstock and added onto the background panel using foam tape.
My last card for the hop, I used the Layering Hearts stencil, the With All My Heart and the Love Birds die. I laid the heart stencil on an A2 sized white paper panel in place, applied (from the top) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress inks using blending brush.
I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock using the With All My Heart die, the Love Birds from red cardstock, and then adhered them over the panel using foam tape. I decorated the card with red heart die cuts & clear jewels.

For my first card, I used the Turtle Doves die set as my main supply. Oh, isn’t this couple so lovely?!! I die cut the turtle doves from watercolour paper first, and then ink blended them with several Distress inks. I also die cut mistletoe from green apple cardstock, ribbon & tiny hearts from lipstick red cardstock. I used glitter gold cardstock for beaks because it’s Christmas, lol!
For my second card, I used the Paper Hugs & the Detail Bohemian Plate dies. I started by making a beautiful patterned panel using the Detail Bohemian Plate die. I then made circle patterns (like the first card) with the Circle Masks stencils and blue coloured Distress inks.
For the sentiment, I used the Paper Hugs die – it is so adorable sentiment die!!

Hello crafty friends! Today is the first day of December, oh, I can’t believe it’s already the last month of 2020, which means we can meet the Simon Says Stamp DieCember! YAY!! For my cards today, I’m featuring the Detailed Rose die set – I loooooove it.
For my first card, I collected the patterned papers that were left here and there. I don’t know why but as soon as I saw this rose die, I thought of patchwork. I die cut the Detailed Rose from thick white cardstock & several patterned papers first. I then assembled all pieces using fine tip glue pen. I also die cut the detailed leaves from green cardstocks.
For the background, I die cut stripes from patterned papers using the Strips 1 & the Strips 2 die sets, then adhered them as shown in the picture on white card base using double-sided tape.
