SSS Painted Flowers

Hello crafty friends!
Today I’m sharing a couple of watercolour flower cards with two beautiful Painted Flowers and Annas Flowers stamp sets. If you know me well, you will know that I absolutely love watercolouring and flowers! :D





For my first card, I made a no-line watercolour flower card with the Painted Flowers stamp set. I stamped solid flowers & leaves from the Painted Flowers set onto watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink at first – I stamped each image fit together as one.

The next step is watercolouring with Distress reinkers! I painted the colours on the stamped images.
Large flowers: Tattered Rose & Victorian Velvet / Small flowers: Scattered Straw (yellow)
Berries: Seedless Preserves / Leaves: Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive / Twigs: Gathered Twigs
Once it was dry, I drew the details of leaves using Copic Multiliner 0.05 Black Ink Marker.

Here is a closer look:



For my second card, I used one small sized solid flower in the Annas Flowers stamp set. I die cut an A2 sized scalloped rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectangles die set at first. I then repeatedly stamped flowers onto the panel using some blue coloured dye inks – I used (from bottom to top) Soft Navy, Audrey Blue, Surf Blue and Sea Glass. I used MISTI for stamping.


I then loosely painted the stamped panel with some blue coloured Distress reinkers as shown in the picture. It was so fun to do! :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a happy week!

SSS Make Magic Release Blog Hop – Day 2

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

For my first card, I used the new Petal Power stamp set along with other SSS goodies – it is so pretty!

I die cut the A2 sized scalloped rectangle panel from watercolour paper first, and then dry embossed the panel using the Lumen embossing Folder. Next, I applied soft & pastel coloured Distress inks to the panel using mini round ink blending tools – I used (from the top) Squeezed Lemonade, Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender. I stamped the Thank You Text from the ink blended panel using Tea Dye Distress ink. OK, the next (and the most important part) I stamped so pretty flowers from the Petal Power set on the panel using several Distress inks. I really love the result, haha!

For the sentiment on the centre of the card, I used the With All My Heart die. I added tiny butterflies, opaque white enamel dots.

For my second card, I used the Slimline Happy for You die along with the Slimline Florals stamp set.

I die cut the Chunky Slimline Scalloped Rectangle from watercolour paper. Next, I stamped floral image on the top & bottom side of the panel using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink, and then coloured the stamped images with Distress markers.

For the sentiment, I used brand new Slimline Happy for You die!

SSS Make Magic Release

Hello crafty friends!
Oh YES! Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Release is live!! I want to share my bright and happy cards with you today. :D

For my first card, I used the new Xylo Phone stamp set. I stamped a xylophone on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured the stamped image with Copic markers, and then fussy cut it – I made a “happy-feeling-rainbow” xylophone, lol!

For my starry rainbow background, I ink blended onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel with Distress inks in rainbow order. I used (from the top) Festive Berries, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves. Next, I added lots of stars using the Scattered Stars stencil. I placed stencil on the blended panel, then applied white embossing paste. I love playing with embossing paste on my card to add a bit of dimension and texture! Finally I mounted the panel on white card base using dot runner adhesive first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.



I made another “happy-feeling-rainbow” card with the new Rainy Days die set. I used many different coloured cardstock for it. :D


I will share more of my Make Magic Release cards this Saturday. Please look forward to upcoming Make Magic Release blog hop starting tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Rainbow Butterflies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend.
Today I have 3 rainbow coloured butterfly cards with some Simon Says Stamp goodies.





To-da! This Butterfly Drift die is my main supply – it’s definitely my most favourite butterfly die ever!!


For my first card, I made a watercoloured rainbow butterflies using the Butterfly Drift and the Shimmer Wreath dies. I die cut rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the A2 sized Basic Rectangle die first. I then die cut the centre of the panel using the Shimmer Wreath die. I watercoloured to a floral circle part of the panel as shown in the picture using Distress reinkers in rainbow order. Next, I die cut the Butterfly Drift from watercolour paper, and then applied Distress inks to some butterflies using blending brushes. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.

I decorated the card with cream coloured pearls.


For my second card, I made a tone-on-tone floral background with the Cosmos Bloom die first. I die cut several Cosmos Bloom from white cardstock, then adhered them on white card base as shown in the picture.

I die cut the Butterfly Drift from thick white cardstock, then coloured each butterfly die cut with Copic markers:
Red: R24 / Pink: R22 / Orange: YR14 / Yellow: Y15
Green: YG06 / Blue: BG13 / Purple: R85 & V15.
I added the outlined Butterfly Drift die cut on the centre of the card first, then added Copic coloured butterflies in place using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Thinking of You Heart die.



For my last card today, I made a watercoloured leafy background with the Leafy Christmas Tree die set. With Crushed Olive & Mowed Lawn Distress inks, I coloured to the panel & leafy tree die cuts. I die cut the Butterfly Drift from white cardstock, inked them, then added on the card.

I really hope my rainbow butterfly cards make you happy!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a safe and restful weekend!

SSS Ocean Background

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a happy weekend.
Today I have three ocean-themed cards with some Simon Says Stamp goodies.

I made watercoloured ocean backgrounds with Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress reinkers – I loooove this blue combo!!



So many crafty friends love my Mermaid 3D standing card I made last month so I used the Be A Mermaid set once again. :D

To make watercoloured ocean background, I fixed the edge of the watercolour paper with purple tape first. I then applied water to the paper before watercolouring. I lightly coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress reinker, then added blue ink splatters. Once it was dry, I trimmed it using A2 sized Basic Rectangle die.

I heat embossed mermaid tails & waves from the Be A Mermaid set in white, coloured them with Distress inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies:
Red mermaid tail: (from bottom to top) Victorian Velvet, Festive Berries, Tattered Rose and Fossilized Amber
Green mermaid tail: Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Fossilized Amber.
I mounted them on white card base, decorated the card with April Showers sequins and Clear Droplets.


For my second card, I used the Anchor die & the Anchors Background stamp. I made watercoloured sea background using Tumbled Glass, Crushed Olive, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress reinkers. Once it was dry, I trimmed it using the Wonky Rectangle die. I applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink to the Anchors Background stamp, stamped onto watercoloured panel, then lightly touched the stamped images using water brush. For the centre of the card, I die cut the Anchor from thick white cardstock, wrapped it using natural twine, adhered it using foam tape.


For my last card today, I used the Lighthouse die & the In The Round stencil. To give the wave effect, I used the Circle Masks Stencil set. I placed the circle stencils onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel, then lightly traced circles using pencil in the order of small to large sized circle. I then coloured according to circle lines using Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress reinkers.


To express breaking waves, I laid the In The Round stencil onto watercolour panel, and then applied white embossing paste. :D
