SSS Rest and Refresh Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m so happy to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Rest and Refresh Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Nichol Spohr’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I used the Bee Happy Stamp Set & the Hexagon Element Die. These two products are so cute!!
I started by stamping adorable bees from the Bee Happy Set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black. I coloured them with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then fussy cut them.
I die cut the Hexagon Element from white card stock five times, stacked them up using fine tip glue pen – I made a thick hexagon die cut. I mounted the hexagon die cut on the centre of kraft card base using fine tip glue pen first, and then added watercoloured bees, sentiment banners, and gold sequins.

For my second card, I used the Summa Time Stamp Set along with the Good Vibes Dies.
I die cut the Wonky Rectangle Panel from watercolour paper first, and then randomly stamped cute elements from the Summa Time Set using VersaFine Onyx Black.
I freely watercoloured the stamped panel with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel – it’s one of my favourite watercolouring techniques. Once the panel was dry, I mounted it on Green Apple card base.

SSS Peeking Animals

Happy Wednesday, crafty friends!
Today I have another Simon Says Stamp peeking friends, frogs, bunny, and chick, to share with you!
It is a “Happy Birthday” card with the Peeking Frog & Peeking Talking Frog Dies.
And, my second card is a baby’s first birthday card with the Peeking Bunny & Peeking Chick Dies.

I die cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangle panel from white card stock using the Basic Rectangles Die Set first, and then made a couple of peeking animal window panels (as shown in the picture) using the Peeking Frog, Talking Frog, Bunny and Chick Dies.
With my peeking frog card, I inked on each piece of white paper with some cool coloured Distress inks: Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Crushed Olive.
I then adhered inked papers to back of the peeking frog panel using foam tape.
With the peeking bunny & chick card, I used Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Tattered Rose Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I stamped “HAPPY” birthday banner from the Big Birthday Greetings Set on white card stock using several SSS dye inks: Smoke Gray, Lipstick Red, Sunshine, Scuba, Blue Jay and Deep Purple. I then fussy cut them.
For the number “1” and the sentiment, I used the Birthday Numbers Stamp & Die Set.
I added lots of confetti because of “HAPPY” birthday cards!! :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

My friend’s grandma, Margaret, will be 89 next Saturday. She loves her old dog very much so my friend wanted me to make her birthday card with dog. You know what? The Chillin Frenchies Set is furrrrr-fect for Margaret’s birthday card! I stamped a lovely dog (from the Chillin Frenchies Set), numbers & balloons (from the Birthday Numbers Set) on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured them with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel & some of Distress markers, and then die cut them with matching dies.
I die cut the Diamond Pattern Panel from white card stock, then mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape. I added all coloured images on the card front using foam tape as well.

Here is another fun card with the Chillin Frenchies Stamp & Die Set! I stamped & watercoloured images, and die cut them with matching dies.
For the cloud background, I used the Clouds For Days Stencils.
These french bulldogs are so lovely!!
