SSS To The Moon And Back Again Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp To The Moon And Back Again Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this beautiful blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Miriam Prantner’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I used the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I heat embossed the Beautiful Bouquet onto an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in white. I then ink blended to the heat embossed floral background panel with some soft & pastel coloured Distress inks – Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Victorian Velvet, Worn Lipstick and Bundled Sage. I added waterdrops here and there.


I washed the Distress ink colours inside the flower image with clean water because Distress inks react with water. :D

For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Hugs die. And I decorated the sentiment with 4mm clear droplets.


For the second card for the hop, I used the Dotted Heart die along with other SSS goodies. I started by making pink cloud background with the Clouds For Days stencil. I used Tattered Rose Distress ink to the background.

For this 3D red heart air balloon, I die cut the Dotted Heart from white cardstock 5 times, applied Festive Berries & Fired Brick Distress inks to all die cuts. Next, I folded each Dotted Heart die cut in half, applied fine tip glue pen to one of the folded heart half, glued another heart half onto it – I repeated until all five have been glued together.

  1. These are both just wonderful. The flowers look sooo pretty! Really gorgeous. And I LOVE the dotted hearts. What a cool die.

  2. Breathtaking watercolor (distress oxide). On the second card it made me smile to see how much the heart looks like a strawberry.

  4. I love how you use Distress Inks to color your images. The cards are both lovely examples to showcase this new release. The dotted heart cut more than once adds so much texture and definition.
