Floral Friday: SSS Mini Flowers and Leaves

Hello crafty friends!
I believe all of you are enjoying the new year. Oh, did you make new year’s crafty resolutions? I think I did. As you may know, I love making floral cards and have many flower products even though some of them are already retired.. So this year, I will make & share my floral cards with various flower products every Friday, called “Floral Friday”. Sharing every Friday is a challenge for me but I will try to keep!!

And, the very first flower that I chose is the Simon Says Stamp Mini Flowers and Leaves! It’s an oldie but I strongly recommend it to people who don’t know it. :D

Mini Flowers and Leaves Die Set





I started by die cutting the Detail Pincushion Plate from watercolour paper. I then ink blended onto it with Fossilized Amber, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress inks. I added waterdrops to the inked panel.

I die cut the Stylized Butterfly from Thick White cardstock, and then the Mini Flowers and Leaves from several coloured cardstock. I mounted the Detail Pincushion Plate on white card base using Dot Runner Adhesive, then added floral butterfly on the centre of the card front using foam tape.

Oh, I love this beautiful butterfly & tiny flowers so much!!

Here is another floral card with the Mini Flowers and Leaves. I die cut the Detail Bohemian Plate from Thick White cardstock first, and then applied one of the Window Panes to the centre of the panel. I die cut the mini flowers from red & yellow cardstock, the leaves from Green Apple cardstock. I die cut the “hugs” sentiment from Thick White cardstock as well.

Aren’t the flowers & leaves around the window so pretty? I love it so much!! :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Winter Birds

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a couple of cheerful Christmas cards with Simon Says Stamp Winter Birds stamp set.

I stamped birds, leaves and sentiments on the exact same place on two A2 sized papers using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink first. As you can see on the right side, I coloured all stamped images with Copic markers. On the left side, I just coloured the background with R29 Copic marker.


For the sentiment on the centre of the card, I used the Holiday Greetings Mix 1 stamp set.
I decorated the card with tiny snowflakes and PPP 4mm clear droplets.

Here is a closer look:




I just coloured the background with R29 Copic marker! I think it’s one of the ways to make great Christmas cards, right?!!

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

SSS Handmade Holiday Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Handmade Holiday Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this warm and cozy blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Emma Williams’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I used the new Etched Delicate Frond die and Pine Bouquet embossing folder.

I applied the Pine Bouquet embossing folder to A2 sized watercolour paper panel first, and then ink blended the panel with some Distress Oxide inks: Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. I then made edge-to-edge shaker panel with lots of sparkling sequins & confetti.

I die cut the Etched Delicate Frond from thick white cardstock, then applied gold embossing powder to the end of each leaf. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Merry die set.

Here is a closer look:



I just could not resist another play with the gorgeous Etched Delicate Frond die. I die cut 3 fronds from thick white cardstock first. I then applied Distress inks to 2 fronds – one that I inked with Evergreen Bough, another that I inked with Bundled Sage. I stamped cardinal in the Winter Birds set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured it with Copic markers.

I dry embossed the panel with the Crystal Distortion embossing folder, mounted it on white card base using double-side tape, then added all elements as shown in the picture. I was so happy to see the result!!
