SSS Edge to Edge Holiday Shaker Cards

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a couple of edge-to-edge holiday shaker cards with the beautiful SSS All Snowflakes & Pinecone Background stamps. I was totally inspired by Nina-Marie’s edge to edge shaker card! Please visit her blog and see her gorgeous card. It is so amazing!!



For my first edge-to-edge shaker card, I used the All Snowflakes Background stamp. I simply stamped the snowflake background onto watercolour paper with Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks. I then lightly brushed the background with wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water! Once the background dried, I trimmed it down as an A2 sized panel using an A2 sized rectangle panel die in the Basic Rectangles die set.

For edge-to-edge shaker card, I cut a piece of clear plastic bag bigger than A2 size, applied super sticky double-side tape to all the edges of back of the background panel, covered the panel with clear plastic piece, and then filled it with sequins and glitter. I added the “Peace” white die cut sentiment from CZ Design Peace die set.



For my second shaker card, I used the Pinecone Background stamp. I stamped the background onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, coloured the stamped images with some Distress reinkers:
Pinecones: Tea Dye & Gathered Twigs
Pine needles: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough
I made an edge-to-edge shaker card like the first one. It was so fun to do!!

SSS Merry & Joy

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I want to share my leafy Christmas card trio with some SSS Christmas products. I really like making winter holiday cards. You like it too, right?!! :D



For my first card, I used the Leafy Branch & CZ Design Merry dies along with the Crystal Distortion Embossing Folder. I die cut the Leafy Branch from watercolour paper – I used both positive & negative pieces. I coloured Leafy Branch with some green coloured Distress reinkers. I used Evergreen Bough, Mowed Lawn, Bundled Sage and Gathered Twigs. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry” from white cardstock, shadow from Neenah Smooth Desert Storm cardstock, glued them together using fine tip glue pen.

I dry embossed on A2 sized white paper panel using the Crystal Distortion embossing folder, mounted it on white card base using dot runner adhesive, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.


For my second leafy Christmas card, I made a watercolour card with the Be Kind stamp set.

I stamped leaves onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel using Bundled Sage Distress ink first, and then coloured all stamped images with Evergreen Bough & Mowed Lawn Distress inks. I just added red berries & tiny dots between leaves using Festive Berries Distress ink.

For the sentiment, I used the word “Merry” in the Holiday Sparkle Greetings stamp set.


For my last leafy wreath card, I used the Christmas Foliage die set. I die cut 6 leaves from watercolour paper, 5 sprigs from white cardstock first. I watercoloured 6 leaves with Evergreen Bough & Mowed Lawn Distress reinkers. Once watercoloured leaves were dry, I made a wreath with 6 leaves & 5 sprigs.

For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joy Script dies.


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

Happy World Card Making Day!

Hello crafty friends, happy World Card Making Day!
Today is a DAY to celebrate handmade card making and it’s also a great time to share Christmas cards! Woohoo!!

I want to share my kraft Christmas card trio with some SSS Christmas products. I did distressing on edges, added lots of white ink splatters & glitters on my today’s cards because it is Christmas card, right?!! Oh, and I used the Holiday Knit Border die & Holiday Sparkle Greetings set as my main supplies.


I started by die cutting the Wonky Rectangle panel from Neenah Smooth Desert Storm cardstock. I then die cut the Holiday Knit Border at the bottom part of the kraft panel. I distressed on edges of the panel using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser, and then lightly ink blended it with Tea Dye Distress ink. For the main sentiment, I heat embossed the word “Merry” in the Holiday Sparkle Greetings stamp set on Desert Storm cardstock in white, die cut it with matching die. For the black sentiment banner, I used the Sentiment Strips Slimline Christmas.

I mounted the Holiday Knit Border panel on the same Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base using foam tape, added opaque white ink splatters, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. The large snowflake is the Eliza Snowflake, and two tiny snowflakes that I used the Stitched Flakes die. I never forgot adding white enamel dots using Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops. ;)


For my second kraft Christmas card, I die cut diagonally the Holiday Knit Border at the bottom part of the kraft panel. I then used the word “Peace” in the Holiday Sparkle Greetings stamp set, added two adorable birds & snowflakes.

For these birds, I stamped them from the Spring Birds set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, lightly watercoloured them using red & green Distress inks, then die cut them with the matching dies.


For the last card today, I made “Joy” Christmas card. I die cut vertically the Holiday Knit Border at the right part of the kraft panel, then added the sentiment “Joy”, Christmas foliage and tiny snowflakes.

I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE what you’re making!!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a happy World Card Making Day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Detail Cloud Plate

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
Today I have another sunflower card with some SSS old & new products. We love sunflowers, especially in autumn, right?!!

I started by making background panel with the new Detail Cloud Plate die.


I applied the Detail Cloud Plate onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel first, and then lightly coloured it with Tumbled Glass Distress reinker. I added ink splatters as well. I then made a sunflower using the Sunflower Petals & Detailed Rose die sets – I die cut all pieces from watercolour paper, then roughly coloured them with some Distress reinkers.


To give my card a bit of antique look, I simply played with Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. :D

SSS Autumn Leaves

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
I believe that you had a wonderful and “artistic” weekend. :D
My first torn edge autumn card was loved so much – oh, I was so happy!! So, I have another torn edge autumn card with the gorgeous Crystal Distortion embossing folder today.


I started by making torn edge background with the Crystal Distortion embossing folder. I placed an A2 sized watercolour paper into the embossing folder, ran it through the die cutting machine. I then tore the edges, applied some autumn coloured Distress inks to the dry embossed panel – I used Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Bundled Sage. I added ink splatters and water drops all around the panel.

For the leafy wreath on the centre of the card, I used the Autumn Leaves set. I stamped the images onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, and then coloured them with Distress inks:
Leaves: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Bundled Sage, Tea Dye and Dried Marigold
Berries: Festive Berries, Dried Marigold and Seedless Preserves.


For my second card, I used the Large Stitched Maple die along with the Crystal Distortion embossing folder.

In this card, I debossed using embossing folder. I applied Crystal Distortion pattern to white paper panel first, and then added ink splatters.


I die cut the Large Stitched Maple from watercolour paper, then coloured it with some autumn coloured Distress inks like the first card here. I decorated the back of the maple die cut with a natural twine to make it look more like autumn. :D
