SSS STAMPtember® 2017 Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends! Happy STAMPtember®!!
It’s September, my favourite time of year, and I am SUPER excited to be a part of the first day of the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop today!!

For my first two cards, I used the brand new You Got This stamp set & Damask stencil along with other SSS products.
To create this card, I laid the Damask stencil over the watercolour panel, and then inked over the stencil using some Distress inks and sponge daubers in rainbow order: (from the top left corner) Festive Berries, Scattered Straw, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, and Victorian Velvet. I then freely brushed on the panel with a wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water!! I added water drops and opaque white ink splatters all over the panel. Once the panel was dry, I heat embossed the edges of the panel with gold. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the You Got This set on black card stock in white, and then die cut it with the Stitched Banner die. I mounted the background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment banner, vellum butterflies (I used the Butterfly Drift die), gold sequins, clear droplets.
“You are strong and God is stronger, together you are unstoppable.” – I love this sentiment so much!!

For my second card, I created my own damask patterns on soft navy card base using the Damask stencil and white embossing paste. I die cut nearly half of the soft navy panel using the Wavy Scallop Stitches die. I then applied the damask pattern on the soft navy panel using white embossing paste. Once the panel was dry, I added some metallic silver & opaque white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the You Got This set on red card stock in white, and then trimmed it down as a small banner. I mounted the background panel on top-folded white card base using foam tape first, and then added the sentiment banner & gold sequins.

For my last card, I used the new Amazing Messages stamp set along with the Tickle Breeze die. I die cut the Tickle Breeze from an A2 sized watercolour panel, and then added rainbow colours using Distress inks and a wet paint brush: Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Faded Jeans, and Seedless Preserves. I added water drops. Next, I stamped the image from the Amazing Messages set on white card stock using Onyx Black pigment ink, lightly coloured inside the alphabets with watercoloured pencils, then fussy cut it. For other words, I heat embossed them on black card stock in white. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using foam tape first, and then added all elements as shown to the card front using foam tape as well.
