Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month Club

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a Christmas card to share with you using a brand new Christmas Gem stamp set from the Spellbinders Clear Stamp of November Month Club – it was released on November first but don’t worry, you can subscribe HERE now. It is a 4×6″ clear stamp set, and only $10! WOW!!



I started by stamping a beautiful Christmas Gem from the set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then coloured the stamped image with Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Tropical Fiesta set. Once it was dry, I fussy cut it.

I roughly watercoloured the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress ink, added opaque white ink splatters all over the panel. I mounted the blue watercoloured panel on Neenah Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape first, and then added a watercoloured Christmas Gem on the centre of the card front using foam tape. I also added white dots using Tonic Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy holiday crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Holly Jolly Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Holly Jolly Release Blog Hop. Woohoo!! If you arrived here from super talented Lisa Addesa’s blog you are on the right track!

For my card today, I’m featuring the Scattered Stars stencil along with the CZ Design Joy Script die. First, I die cut snowflakes from thick white cardstock using the Lea Snowflake & Daphne Snowflake dies. I carefully applied glossy accent onto both snowflake die cuts, and then sprinkled Unicorn Confetti Glitters onto them. Woo hoo, I love, love, love these sparkling snowflakes! I left them aside to dry.

Ohhh.. I love star shapes! First, I applied several dark coloured Distress inks onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel using the new blender brushes – I used Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot Distress inks. I laid the Scattered Stars stencil over the panel, then applied Gina K Designs Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel. Super shiny, isn’t it?!!

I want to show you a little closer! :D


For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joy Script dies – it is definitely one of my favourites among entire new products.



It is that I posted yesterday, the release day, but just share it again for those who haven’t seen it. I used the Holiday Words Background stamp. Please click HERE if you want to know more details. :)

SSS Holly Jolly Release

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
We have another awesome Christmas release from Simon Says Stamp called “Holly Jolly” today! YAY!!

For my card today, I used the Holiday Words background stamp along with the Sentiment Strips Slimline Christmas. Oh, I love this modern and fashionable diagonally holiday words background so much.

First, I die cut an A2 sized panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangle panel die. I then stamped Holiday Words onto watercolour paper panel with Fired Brick Distress ink. Some part I stamped with Candied Apple & Vintage Photo Distress inks – I used MISTI stamping tool for stamping several times.

As you already know, Distress inks react with water so I roughly stamped, and then brushed each letter using water brush. Of course I added water drops here and there.

Look! with Distress inks & water brush, we can easily make a pretty watercolour cards!

I will share more bright & shine winter holiday cards tomorrow!
So stay tuned. :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Ho Ho Ho

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a fun “Ho Ho Ho” Christmas card with the CZ Design Simple Ho die and the Santa’s Sleigh Ride Slider set.

I started by stamping a cute image from the Santa’s Sleigh Ride Slider set onto white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured it with Copic markers, and then die cut it with the matching die. I then die cut the word “ho” from Lipstick Red cardstock & shadow from white cardstock three times, assembled together each “ho” word using fine tip glue pen. I die cut tiny snowflakes from white cardstock using the Stitched Flakes die as well.

I die cut the Holiday Knit Background panel from Neenah Smooth Desert Storm cardstock, mounted it on the same kraft card base using double-sided tape, and then added opaque white ink splatters all over the card. I added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape, then decorated the card with PPP Sparkling Clear Snowflake Sequins.

SSS Make Merry Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Make Merry Release Blog Hop. I’m especially excited to be a part of this amazing blog hop because it’s Christmas hop, woohoo!! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I am featuring the new Center Cut Holiday Floral background stamp & the Deco Hat Gnome die. As many of you know watercolouring is my most favourite way to play with in my craft room! With these awesome goodies, I made a no-line watercoloured card.

I stamped the holiday flowers on A2 sized watercolour paper panel using Antique Linen Distress ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens:
(Flowers & Berries) Red Apple, Wild Phlox
(Leaves) Sliced Kiwi, Aqua Splash, Indigo Batik
(Stems) Yellow Ochre, Caramel Pecan
I coloured with Aqua Flow Pen first, then added water using water brush.

Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I cut the centre of the panel using Stitched Circle die.

For the Deco Hat Gnome, I die cut Deco Hat from several colour cardstock – Lipstick Red, Sunshine, Mint and Green Apple. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joyful dies.

Isn’t this gnome so cute?!! :D


For my second card, I used the Falling Leaves layering stencils & the Warm Hugs dies. with the first leaves stencil, I inked with Green Apple dye ink. The second leaves stencil, I inked with Green Leaf dye ink. The berries stencil, I inked with Lipstick Red dye ink. Lastly I laid acorn stencil over the panel, then inked with Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Warm Hugs dies.

It is so easy to make pretty card with layering stencils! :D

For my last project for the hop, I made a very simple Christmas ornament ball with Warm Hugs dies. I made thick white “Warm Hugs” word die cut, then glued firmly to the bottom of the clear plastic ball using multi medium matte. I filled a clear ball with lots of clear sparkling sequins & glitters.
