SSS Costume Birthday Party

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!
My teenage niece received a costume birthday party invitation, it will be held next Saturday, so she asked me to make a happy birthday card. Sure! Why not? For her friend, I chose the SSS Critter Costume Party stamp set – this is the perfect choice!!
I started by stamping adorable costume critters (from the Critter Costume Party set), cute bird, party hats, stars (from the Cuddly Critters Accessories set) randomly onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, then coloured them with Distress markers. Random stamping + Distress marker watercolouring is one of my favourite techniques!! Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down using an A2 sized Basic Rectangle panel die. I mounted the watercoloured panel on top-folded white card base using double-sided tape, then embellished with a few star wood veneers.
My niece looooooved this card so much and gave me two thumbs up! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take Three + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m back with my third post for Winnie & Walter as their Leading Lady this month. Two weeks already gone.. time really flies!!
One of my church members is expecting a baby girl in a few months so I wanted to make a cute baby shaker card for her! I am always happy to make baby cards!!
To start off, I created my own background with the In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora and the Welcome to the Family stamp sets. I stamped images on watercolor paper using Memento Desert Sand dye ink, roughly coloured the panel with Tattered Rose Distress ink and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down with the Essentials: Lana Cutaways. I then die cut ‘baby’ sentiment using the In a Word: Baby Cutaway and adhered acetate sheet to back of the panel.
I stamped and watercolored the baby bear (from the Welcome to the Family set) with Distress markers, die cut it with the Welcome to the Family Cutaways. For the sentiment, I used the Sketchy Thoughts stamp set.
This baby bear.. soooooooo cute!!!

Shay has generously donated a $30 gift card for me to give away! To be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment on my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts (every Saturday in May). I’ll announce one lucky winner at the end of the month! Take One HERE, Take Two HERE.

SSS Beautiful Day

Hello crafty friends, it’s a warm sunny day. I can see people are riding bicycles outside. :)
So today I want to share with you my card with the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Ride Stamp & Die Set – it’s definitely one of my favourites among SSS products!!
I started by stamping bicycle, baskets, and kitty from the Beautiful Ride set on watercolour paper using Onyx Black pigment ink. I coloured them with Distress markers, then die cut them with the matching dies.
For the bubbly background, I used the Ring Wreath die. I die cut Ring Wreath from a separate white card stock several times, adhered them on an A2 sized white paper panel using fine tip glue pen. I also die cut Ring Wreath from coloured card stock; Audrey BlueCotton CandyGreen Apple, Lemon ChiffonLipstick RedSea Glass, and Sunshine. Then I inlaid circle cuts in place, as seen above.
  For the sentiment, I used the word “Hello” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.
How about riding a bike and saying “hello” to your neighbors today?

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
