SSS STAMPtember® Sunflower Hugs

Happy Monday, crafty friends. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Today I have a couple of watercoloured floral “Hugs” cards using the Sunflower Stem Die along with other SSS products.
I die cut the Sunflower Stem from watercolour paper first, and then coloured it with Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens:
Petals: Mango Mimosa / Cinnamon Stick
The dark centre: (light to dark) Cinnamon Stick / Yellow Ochre / Caramel Pecan
leaves: Sliced Kiwi / Indigo Batik
And, I die cut another sunflower from white card stock, then glued the outline die cut over the watercoloured base image using fine tip glue pen.For the shaker panel, I cut out the centre of 4.25″ x 5.5″ white rectangle panel using the double-stitched rounded rectangle panel die in the Shimmer Rounded Rectangle die set. I then adhered vellum paper behind the panel, added Autumn Leaves Sequins.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “hugs” from white card stock, shadow from Green Leaf card stock using the Healing Hugs die set, then glued them together using fine tip glue pen.

Here is another card with the Sunflower Stem die.
For the autumn coloured clouds background, I inked some clouds on Wonky Rectangle watercolour panel with some Distress inks using the Clouds For Days stencil. I used (from the top) Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass and Gathered Twigs Distress inks.
I mounted the clouds background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the watercoloured sunflower & sentiment banner using foam tape.

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® Winter Floral Christmas Cards

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
Today I have a couple of cheerful Christmas cards using the Winter Floral Mix Background stamp along with other Simon products.
To create the card, I stamped the Winter Floral Mix Background onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black first, and then trimmed the stamped paper down with 4.25″ x 5.5″ Basic Rectangle Panel die.
I coloured all stamped images with watercolour pencils. For poinsettias, I coloured lighter one leaf and darker another leaf one by one with just one red watercolour pencil. I used Derwent watercolour pencils. I then added water to all watercolour penciled images using a wet paint brush.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Big Joy Word from metallic gold card stock one time & white card stock 4 times, then stacked them up using fine tip glue pen. I decorated the card with natural hemp cord & jingle bells.

Here is another card with the Winter Floral Mix Background stamp.
I stamped & watercoloured the floral images, then added opaque white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I used “Happiest of Holidays” in the CZ Design Ho Ho Postage stamp set.
I added beautiful snowflakes onto the card front – I used the Kate & Rina Snowflake dies.

Making Christmas cards are always so fun and feel very cozy!! I love it so much. :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.
