SSS Hello Beautiful Blog Hop – Day 2

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

As you can see, Simon’s exclusive Hello Beautiful products seem to give me spring as a gift! Beautiful flowers bloomed in my craft room, haha! For my first two floral cards, I used the beautiful Blooming Meadow set along with the Spring Birds and the Bitty Birdhouse set.

I started by stamping pretty birds from the Spring Birds set on white cardstock using Memento Desert Sand dye ink. I then coloured the stamped images with Copic markers, die cut them with the matching dies. Next, I die cut bird house from watercolour paper and then ink blended all the pieces using Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs Distress inks.

For the floral wreath, I stamped flowers & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set onto watercolour paper using Memento Desert Sand dye ink first, and then coloured them with several Distress inks. I used Festive Berries & Fired Brick for red flowers, Seedless Preserves for purple flower, Fossilized Amber & Wild Honey for yellow flowers and Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive for leaves.

For this CAS floral card, I simply stamped flower petals & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set using several SSS dye inks – I used Lipstick Red & Rose Apple dye inks for red flowers, Lavender for purple flower, Clementine for yellow flower and Scuba for leaves. I stamped outlines with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. I then stamped the sentiment in Onyx Black, added tiny butterflies around the flowers.

These spring flowers and birds are so lovely, aren’t they?!!

For my last card for the hop, I used the Lavender Garden set. I stamped flowers & watering can onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, then watercoloured them with Distress inks.

I hope my cards brighten your day!
