SSS Floral Mother’s Day Cards

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I have floral Mother’s Day cards with the Simon Says Stamp Best Friend Ever Set along with other goodies.

These all three floral cards that I did watercolouring with Distress inks. I love these pretty flower clusters in the Best Friend Ever stamp set.

I stamped flower image on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black first, then coloured the stamped image with some Distress inks. For flower petals, I used Festive Berries, Fired Brick and a little bit of Scattered Straw. For leaves, I used Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. Once the watercoloured image was dry, I die cut it with the matching die. For the sentiment, I stamped “Mama” from the CZ Design Love You Mama set on white cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black, and then die cut it out. I heat embossed the word “LOVE YOU” on black cardstock in white as well. For the background panel, I die cut Chunky Scalloped Rectangle panel from thick white cardstock, dry embossed it with Lumen Embossing Folder. Finally I mounted scalloped rectangle panel on Neenah Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.

For my second watercoloured floral card, I made it the same way as the first card. For the flower, I used the Seedless Preserves, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the CZ Design Love You Mama set on beige cardstock in VersaFine Onyx Black, then cut it out using banner die in the Nested Banners die set. For the background, I die cut Wonky Rectangle panel from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock first, then dry embossed it using the Splendid Leaves Embossing Folder.


For my last card today, I made a no-line watercolour card. I stamped flower image on watercolour paper using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink first, coloured it with some Distress inks, then die cut it out. For the sentiment, I used the Mom Word Mix 2 stamp set & the Script Mom die.

SSS Floral Mother’s Day Cards

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
Today I have a couple of floral Mother’s Day cards with SSS Sweet Friend Set. :D



I started by stamping flowers & leaves from the Sweet Friend set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I then coloured all stamped images with Copic markers. For red flowers, I used R27, R20, R83 and R39 – coloured edge of each petals with R27 first, blended with lighter colours (R20, R83), then lastly added shade with the darkest colour (R39). For pink flowers, I used R22, R81 and R85.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed the “Love You” circle shaped sentiment from the Love and Valentines Word Mix 2 set in gold, then cut it using the Stitched Circle die.

I added tiny butterflies onto flowers – beautiful flowers & butterflies are a perfect match, right?!!


Here is another Mother’s Day card with the Sweet Friend set. I stamped & Copic marker coloured some flowers, then die cut them with the matching dies. For the white leaves, I used the detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set.

For a mini kraft woodgrain envelope, I used the Mini Interactive Envelope die. For the sentiment, I die cut the “Mom” from metallic gold using the Script Mom die.

Flowers, butterflies and lovely script “Mom” sentiment are perfect for a beautiful Mother’s Day card. :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all.

SSS Hello Beautiful Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track.

As you can see, Simon’s exclusive Hello Beautiful products seem to give me spring as a gift! Beautiful flowers bloomed in my craft room, haha! For my first two floral cards, I used the beautiful Blooming Meadow set along with the Spring Birds and the Bitty Birdhouse set.

I started by stamping pretty birds from the Spring Birds set on white cardstock using Memento Desert Sand dye ink. I then coloured the stamped images with Copic markers, die cut them with the matching dies. Next, I die cut bird house from watercolour paper and then ink blended all the pieces using Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs Distress inks.


For the floral wreath, I stamped flowers & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set onto watercolour paper using Memento Desert Sand dye ink first, and then coloured them with several Distress inks. I used Festive Berries & Fired Brick for red flowers, Seedless Preserves for purple flower, Fossilized Amber & Wild Honey for yellow flowers and Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive for leaves.



For this CAS floral card, I simply stamped flower petals & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set using several SSS dye inks – I used Lipstick Red & Rose Apple dye inks for red flowers, Lavender for purple flower, Clementine for yellow flower and Scuba for leaves. I stamped outlines with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. I then stamped the sentiment in Onyx Black, added tiny butterflies around the flowers.


These spring flowers and birds are so lovely, aren’t they?!!


For my last card for the hop, I used the Lavender Garden set. I stamped flowers & watering can onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, then watercoloured them with Distress inks.

I hope my cards brighten your day!

SSS Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop – Day 2

Happy New Year, crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

Today, I will share 4 cards using Love You (December-released) products only because Love You, Too products arrived late but don’t worry! I will post new projects using Love You, Too products from next week. So, shall we get started? :D

For my first card, I used the You Have My Heart & the With All My Heart along with other SSS goodies. I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangles die set first. I stamped flowers using Antique Linen Distress ink, watercoloured the stamped images using Distress inks:
Red flowers: Festive Berries, Candied Apple and Fired Brick
Leaves: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive
Flower buds: Wild Honey / Branches: Vintage Photo

I die cut the sentiment from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper using the With All My Heart die. I also die cut bird couple & wedding ring.

Once the watercoloured floral panel was dry, I added sentiment & lovely bird couple as shown in the picture using foam tape. I love this adorable bird couple. :D


For my second card, I used the Splendid Leaves embossing folder & the Floral Card Front die. I applied Distress inks to the inside of an embossing folder first, and then spritzed the inked area with water. After that, I ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine – Ohhhh, I love a watercolour look!!

I die cut the Floral Card Front from thick white cardstock and added onto the background panel using foam tape.



For my second card, I used the Mini Interactive Envelope, the Detail Swirls Plate and the Mini Hearts Party dies. I simply prepared 6 red-coloured mini envelopes, a mini love message card, and a wedding ring, and then made a simply Valentine’s Day card. :)

The new Mini Hearts Party die is so handy. We can make many hearts with a single cut, yay!

For this lovely “XOXO” message, I used the Love Greetings MIX stamp set.


My last card for the hop, I used the Layering Hearts stencil, the With All My Heart and the Love Birds die. I laid the heart stencil on an A2 sized white paper panel in place, applied (from the top) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress inks using blending brush.

I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock using the With All My Heart die, the Love Birds from red cardstock, and then adhered them over the panel using foam tape. I decorated the card with red heart die cuts & clear jewels.

SSS DieCember® Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp DieCember 2020 Release Blog Hop. I’m super-duper excited to be a part of this fabulous blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I used the Turtle Doves die set as my main supply. Oh, isn’t this couple so lovely?!! I die cut the turtle doves from watercolour paper first, and then ink blended them with several Distress inks. I also die cut mistletoe from green apple cardstock, ribbon & tiny hearts from lipstick red cardstock. I used glitter gold cardstock for beaks because it’s Christmas, lol!

For the background, I heat embossed the Holiday Words background onto watercolour paper panel in white first, and then made circle on the centre of the panel with the Circle Masks stencils & Distress inks: (from the largest circle) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple. I tore up the top & bottom parts of the background panel, mounted it on Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base, then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. I also decorated the card with clear snowflakes in the Snowy Pines sequins.



For my second card, I used the Paper Hugs & the Detail Bohemian Plate dies. I started by making a beautiful patterned panel using the Detail Bohemian Plate die. I then made circle patterns (like the first card) with the Circle Masks stencils and blue coloured Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Paper Hugs die – it is so adorable sentiment die!!
