SSS Large Floral Dies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are always happy and healthy.
Today I have a couple of floral cards with some Simon Says Stamp large sized flower dies.
For my first card, I used the Hibiscus Bloom die along with the In The Round stencil. To create the card, I die cut the Hibiscus Bloom from watercolour paper first, and then applied Rosie Cheeks dye ink on the centre of the flower using blender brush. I added a bit of glitter gold using Tonic Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops.
For the background, I applied white embossing paste through the In The Round stencil at the centre of the Wonky Rectangle paper panel. I added opaque white ink splatters here and there. I mounted the background panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added pink Hibiscus Bloom using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy.
I love adding PPP 4mm clear droplets to the flower petals. Always!!

For my second card, I made the same way but used different flower dies – Etched Peony Blossom & Etched Flower Buds dies. For the background, I stamped Thank You Text Background on kraft paper panel using Rusty Hinge Distress ink, then tore the top and bottom of the paper with my hands. I love this vintage look. :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a healthy day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Spring Flowers

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend.
Simon Says Stamp released new products called “Send Happiness” last Thursday – my parcel hasn’t arrived yet, but I made a watercoloured floral card with previous released products instead.
For my card today, I used the Spring Flowers stamp set – it’s definitely one of my very favourites!! :D I randomly stamped flowers & leaves from the Spring Flowers set onto 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, then coloured the stamped images with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. I love watercolouring with bright and vibrant Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. I really like bright and vivid colours, but I chose to wash the colours for a vintage look today.
For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy. As you can see my previous cards, I’d like to use white heat embossed sentiment on black cardstock and the SSS Sentiment Strips Reverse series save me a lot of time! I highly recommend it to people who like to do it like me.For those of you who are tired of something, I send my love and prayers!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a healthy day.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Crafty Hugs Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from super talented Debby Hughes’s blog you are on the right track!

For today’s cards, I used the So Beautiful Background Stamp.
I die cut the Wonky Rectangle panel from watercolour paper first, and then stamped wildflowers onto the panel using black pigment ink. I then placed Clouds For Days stencil over the panel in place, made clouds using Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
I stamped another set of wildflowers in black, coloured all flowers with polychromos colored pencils, then fussy cut them out. I mounted the panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added flowers on the right place using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy.

OCC Spring Card Camp 2 – Day 1

Hello crafty friends!
I’ve been away from my blog for a bit because I was busy with work but I’m attending OCC Spring Card Camp 2 every day. As you already undoubtedly know, Online Card Class has a ton of amazing card classes like Spring Card Camp – and another Spring Card Camp class started 6th of May. It’s still going on so participate in if you don’t have this class yet.

The subject of the Day 1 Kristina leads is masking technique called “Marvelous Masking“. This technique is really great with minimal supplies!
To be brief, I die cut large sized alphabets from printer paper using the Altenew Mega Alphabet dies first, then placed them on diagonal stitched rectangled watercolour paper panel in place – fixed them firmly using washi tape. I blended them with Distress inks, and then stamped tiny flowers & leaves with pigment black ink.
I used Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge and Festive Berries Distress inks for blending.
I used Crushed Olive, Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans.
I used Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves.

For the sentiment, I used the Pinkfresh Studio Hey Gorgeous die & the Simon Says Stamp SSS Sentiment Strips All Things Happy.
Don’t miss this class! You can learn many awesome techniques from amazing card makers!!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Sunny Days Ahead Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Sunny Days Ahead Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from talented Karin Äkesdotter’s blog you are on the right track! Sadly my parcel hasn’t arrived yet so I will share my Mother’s Day cards using previous released (and my favourite) products with you today. I hope it will arrive soon!
For my first card, I used the Botanical Heart stamp set & the Script Mom die.
I stamped large sized flower image from the Botanical Heart set onto watercolour paper panel with Faded Jeans Distress ink.
As many of you already know, Distress inks react with water so I just freely brushed part of stamped image with water brush as shown in the picture.
I painted my flowers with Faded Jean Distress ink as my main colour, then added Crushed Olive, Fossilized Amber and Mowed Lawn Distress inks.
For the sentiment, I used the Script Mom die & the Tiny Words Encouragement stamp set.
I love this “artsy style” so much!! :D

Here is another Mother’s Day card, I used the Floral Mom Frame die & the Love Friendship stamp set.
I die cut the Floral Mom Frame from watercolour paper first, and then lightly inked on the flowers & leaves with some Distress inks:
Flowers: Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves
Leaves: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn
I decorated the part of the word “MOM” with PPP Valentine Jewels.

Here is a closer look:

I will make & share my cards with brand new Sunny Days Ahead products soon!
