SSS Hugs and Kisses Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Hugs and Kisses Release Blog Hop. I am 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 From the Heart Messages, Nested Round Hearts and Lace Heart Kaleidoscope Background. I heat embossed the beautiful sentiment in the From the Heart Messages set onto white cardstock in white, die cut it with the largest sized heart die, and then ink blended it with Festive Berries & Fired Brick Distress inks. For the background, I stamped the Lace Heart Kaleidoscope using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I coloured all tiny hearts with Copic R27.

Here is another heart card with the From the Heart Messages and Nested Round Hearts. I die cut 4 different hearts from colour cardstock – I used Rich Red Matte Metallic, Cotton Candy and Lipstick Red cardstock. For the sentiment heart die cut, I heat embossed the sentiment on watercolour paper in white, inked it with Tattered Rose Distress ink.

For the background, I used the Spun Glass embossing folder.

For my last card, I used the Large Stitched Maple die. This maple die is not belong to the Hugs and Kisses Release but I thought, I really don’t know, it was one of the new products, haha! More card, happy to see, right?!!

I die cut the Large Stitched Maple from pastel coloured cardstock, randomly adhered them on an A2 sized white card base using foam tape. Easy-peasy, right?! :)

  3. Your cards are fantastic – love the little red hearts on the background on the first one, but I have to say the leaves are totally amazing! Love both cards, but if I had to pick only one it would have to be the leaves. Gorgeous.

  4. P.S. I tried to link to the Large Maple Leaf die but it would only take me to a blank LinkDeli page. I’m so sorry you won’t get your affiliate credit when I purchase the die.

  5. Hi, Yoonsun – It’s always a dreadfully hard choice for me to pick which of your cards I like best. No one said I had to choose – but I try. I ADORE the last one w/ the colorful die cuts of leaves. GORGEOUS! I also love that first one w/ the awesome background that reminds me of a quilt. I did not order that and now I wish I had. I’ll get it eventually… I hope. I love the nested heart dies and what you have done w/ them as well. Everything looks splendid!!

  6. Beautiful cards! I absolutely love the leaf filled card- the colours work so well together! (by the way I’m pretty sure that is the Buckeye leaf die, not the Maple leaf die. I have the Buckeye leaf die and it looks just like that! :D )
