SSS STAMPtember®From All of Us

Happy STAMPtember, crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my rainbow birthday balloon card using the Celebrate You & Critter Crowd Sets.
I started by stamping adorable critters from the Critter Crowd set on watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink. I then coloured the stamped image with Distress markers & water brush. I die cut it with the matching die.
I die cut several balloons from watercolour paper using different sized balloon dies in the Celebrate You die set. I then made rainbow balloons with some SSS dye inks – I ink blended each balloon die cut using Picket Fence Blender Brush.
Red balloon: (light to dark) Lipstick Red & Merlot
Yellow balloon: Duckling & Clementine
Green balloon: Green Apple & Evergreen
Blue balloon: Audrey Blue & Soft Navy
Purple balloon: Lavender & Deep Purple
Before gluing rainbow balloons, I stamped strings from the Celebrate You set & the sentiment “from all of us” from the Critter Crowd set onto the card front using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then mounted the watercoloured critters & rainbow balloons onto the card using foam tape.
This sentiment string is so good for birthday balloon cards! :D

SSS STAMPtember® Poinsettia Christmas Card

Happy weekend, crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my watercoloured Christmas card using beautiful Poinsettia Background stamp. It is officially my first Christmas card of the year!
The new STAMPtember Poinsettia Background Stamp is a very elegant look. We can make beautiful and traditional Christmas cards with it.
I started by stamping Poinsettia Background onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then trimmed the stamped paper down using the 4.25″ x 5.5″ Basic Rectangle Panel die. I coloured the stamped images with Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set.
Red and green are traditional colours for Christmas. I love using this classic colour combo during Christmas season! I think you’re probably the same as me!

Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I used the Stitched Circle die to cut, twice with two different sizes, in the centre of the panel, and then mounted them as shown in the picture on white card base using foam tape. I added opaque white ink splatters using Altenew Pure White Ink Spray.
For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joyful dies. I die cut the word “joyful” from Dark Chocolate card stock, shadow from Cream card stock.
Christmas… just the thought of it makes me very happy. :D

SSS STAMPtember® Leafy Thinking of You Cards

Happy STAMPtember, crafty friends!!
I think I am gonna be talking about “Happy STAMPtember” all month, haha! :D

Today I want to share with you a couple of my leafy “Thinking of You” cards using the Eucalyptus Leaves dies along with other STAMPtember products.
For my first card, I used the Eucalyptus Leaves dies and the Tumbling Leaves stencil.
I die cut several Eucalyptus Leaves from watercolour paper first, and then inked on them using green coloured dye inks & Picket Fence Studios blender brush. I used (light to dark) SSS Green Apple, Green Leaf and Evergreen dye inks.
For the background panel, I die cut Wonky Rectangle Panel from Cream card stock first, and then made leafy background using the Tumbling Leaves stencil. For the sentiment, I used the Sending Sympathy stamp set.
For the shadow effect, I cut the centre of the panel using the Eucalyptus Leaves die. I tied all eucalyptus leaves up with natural twine.
Waterdrops on eucalyptus leaves, I used Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops. :)

For my second card, I used the Thinking of You Heart die along with the Eucalyptus Leaves dies.
I die cut several eucalyptus leaves from watercolour paper first, and then also Wonky Rectangle Panel from watercolour paper. I then adhered eucalyptus leaves die cuts on the wonky rectangle panel using ZIG fine tip glue pen. Next, I ink blended on the leafy background panel with some Distress inks: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Tea Dye and Rusty Hinge.
After ink blending, I added fresh water all over the inked panel using a wet paint brush – it looks like watercoloured panel.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Thinking of You Heart from white card stock, heart shaped shadow from vellum paper, then glued them together using fine tip glue pen. The dot above ‘i’, I used clear jewel instead of paper.
I decorated the sentiment panel with lightly watercoloured eucalyptus leaves.

SSS STAMPtember® Party!!

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!!
Today we have a big STAMPtember party with lots of super talented designers! I am SO excited and honoured to be a part of this awesome party! YAY!!

For my card today, I used so beautiful Flora Stencil & Eucalyptus Leaves Dies. These two products are my favourites!
I securely placed the Flora Stencil on cream card stock in place using washi tape first, and then brushed over the stencil using Festive Berries & Fired Brick Distress inks and Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brush. I coloured the rest areas with Pumice Stone Distress ink and water brush. I let it dry.
While the floral panel was drying, I die cut Eucalyptus Leaves from white card stock, then white heat embossed the sentiment on Schoolhouse Red card stock.
Once the floral panel was dry, I made two wavy scallop edged panels (as shown in the picture) first, punched tiny hole each panel, and then tied them up with a red plaid ribbon.
I tucked eucalyptus leaves in a ribbon.
