SSS Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop – Day 2

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

I die cut the sentiment from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper using the With All My Heart die. I also die cut bird couple & wedding ring.

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.



For my second card, I used the Mini Interactive Envelope, the Detail Swirls Plate and the Mini Hearts Party dies. I simply prepared 6 red-coloured mini envelopes, a mini love message card, and a wedding ring, and then made a simply Valentine’s Day card. :)

The new Mini Hearts Party die is so handy. We can make many hearts with a single cut, yay!

For this lovely “XOXO” message, I used the Love Greetings MIX stamp set.


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.
