SSS Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Hello crafty friends and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. It’s already the last week of April. Wow, time flies!!

Today I have a watercoloured rose card to share with you using MFT Roses All Over background stamp.I started by stamping roses from the MFT Roses All Over background stamp on watercolour paper using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink, then trimmed it down using A2 sized rectangle panel die in the SSS Basic Rectangles die set. Next, I coloured the stamped roses with 24 Staedtler Ergo Soft Aquarell Watercolour Pencils. I coloured the edge of each petal with pencil first, and then brushed them using water brush. I die cut three of butterflies from heavy weight white card stock using the MFT Flutter of Butterflies Lace Die-namics – my favourite butterfly die set! I then inked the bottom half of them with Tattered Rose Distress ink.
For the sentiment, I used the MFT Essential Sentiments stamp set.

SSS Wednesday Challenge: Sparkle and Shine

Hello crafty friends, I am back with you this week to share a Mother’s Day card I’ve created using newly released SSS Fluttering By products: Center Cut Flowers, Script Mom, Flickering Butterflies, Woodgrain Block, and Messages For Everyday.
Here is what I came up with:

I started by stamping the center floral from the Center Cut Flowers background stamp on watercolour paper using Barely Beige dye ink because of no-line colouring. I coloured the stamped image with Faber-Castell polychromos pencils. In my flowers, I coloured the half of each petal & leaf image with pencils, and then brushed them using (lightly) oiled blending stump – I used Zest-it Pencil Blend but you can use baby oil for blending oil pencils!
I have 120 polychromos pencils but you don’t need to buy too many all at once. 12 basic colour set, it’s good enough for you to try!
After colouring, I die cut the Woodgrain Block from white card stock.

I mounted the woodgrain panel on top-folded white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added coloured flower image, sentiment die cut, tiny butterflies on the card front using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Script Mom dies & Messages For Everyday stamp set.
To finish it off, I added these yummy fruity Nuvo Jewel Drops around the flowers!!

SSS Wednesday Challenge: Add Some Texture

Hello crafty friends, I am back with you this week to share my floral card I’ve created using the Tim Holtz Floral Layering Stencil.
Here is what I came up with:
I started by die cutting rectangle panel from kraft card stock using the SSS Basic Rectangles die. I then laid the Tim Holtz Floral Layering Stencil over the kraft panel, applied white embossing paste using palette knife. I carefully removed the stencil, and then sprinkled a bit of clear glitter over the flowers. Once the panel was completely dry, I decorated the left side of the panel with natural twine & pom pom trim. For the sentiment, I used the SSS Let Us Rejoice stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment on the SSS Dark Chocolate card stock in white, trimmed it out using the SSS Stitched Banners die.

SSS Wednesday Challenge: Happy 9th Birthday

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
I am so honoured to be a guest designer over at Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge for the month of April!!

Wednesday Challenge team celebrated their 9th birthday on April 1st so I created a watercolour floral birthday card to celebrate their success!!

I die cut fishtail banner from the right part of white paper panel using the SSS Basic Banners die set first – I used it as a shaker window panel.
Next, I stamped the sentiment “Birthday Wishes” from the SSS Big U Words set on white card stock in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink – I masked “Big” and “To” using Post-It Note because just needed “Birthday Wishes”. I then trimmed it out using small sized fishtail banner die in the SSS Stitched Banners die set.
I stamped and watercoloured flowers & leaves from the SSS Even More Spring Flowers set, then die cut them with the matching dies.

Mustard Seed Faith Challenge #3

Hello crafty friends, happy Easter!!
I’m SO happy (and so honoured) to be a part of the Mustard Seed Faith Challenge team from this month!
This is a brand new challenge blog for everybody, those with great talents and those with little, those with faith in Jesus, those who are curious about Christianity and those who…just like a good challenge and the key verse, the reason for this blog stems from Matthew 17:20 “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed…nothing will be impossible for you.”

This week’s challenge is to make something related to “Traveling Mercies“.
I started by stamping flowers and leaves from the SSS More Spring Flowers set on an A2 sized white paper panel in MFT Black Licorice hybrid ink, and then coloured them with Alcohol based markers (Altenew and Copic markers). I then used hot-air balloon die cut to express “Traveling Mercies”.
Please visit our challenge blog, Mustard Seed Faith Challenges for more inspiration!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
