PFS February 2020 Background Stamp Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio February 2020 Background Stamp Release Blog Hop! PFS’s talented design team members & guest designers will be showing an amazing range of projects and ideas using brand new FABULOUS background stamps!! I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing hop! Hope that you take the time to check out all beautiful creations!

For my first card, I’m featuring the Lemon Lush background stamp along with other PFS products.
I stamped the Lemon Lush background on watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink. I then coloured the stamped panel with several liquid watercolors:
(Lemons) Sunshine, Clementine
(Flowers) Clementine, Candy apple, Lavender
(Leaves) Key lime mixed with Espresso, Emerald City.
The grey background, I used Pumice Stone Distress ink.
For a cute paper bow, I die cut each piece of the pattern from lemon yellow cardstock using the Flower Bouquet and a Bow die set. I then assembled it using double-sided tape.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “wonderful” from lemon yellow & glitter gold cardstock using the Phrase Builder: You die set first, and then adhered them diagonally onto the watercoloured panel.

For my second card, I’m featuring the Enchanted Blooms background stamp along with the Essentials: Classic Words die set.
I stamped the Enchanted Blooms background onto watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, and then watercoloured the stamped panel with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens.
For the sentiment, I used the words “Hello Beautiful” from the Essentials: Classic Words die set.

Picket Fence Studios Rose Bouquet

Hello crafty friends, I hope you are having a very blessed Sunday!
Today I have a couple of floral “Thank You” cards with the Picket Fence Studios Rose Bouquet stamp set – it’s a really beautiful set and I was so happy to make floral cards with it!! :D

Let’s start to watercolouring, yay! I stamped a bunch of roses onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with Altenew liquid watercolours.
Roses: Ruby Red, Crimson
Leaves: Lime, Sweet Leaf, Espresso and Paper Bag – mixing Lime and Espresso makes a pretty olive green. ;)
Here is a closer look:

For my second card, I made white roses on kraft card using the Rose Bouquet stamp set. I die cut 4.25″ x 5.5″ basic rectangle panel & 2.5″ x 6″ stitched fishtail banner from kraft cardstock, and then stamped rose bouquet onto both kraft base using Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink – I definitely used MISTI for stamping in the exact same place.
I coloured the stamped image on fishtail banner using Faber Castell polychromos colored pencils. I added opaque white ink splatters and white enamel dots. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Autumn Leafy Thank You Cards

Hello crafty friends!
As you know, autumn leaf colour is unexpectedly beautiful. Green leaves to change into red, yellow, orange and even brown. So today I wanna share with you my watercoloured autumn leaves using the Simon’s Large Stitched Maple & Oak dies.
These large sized leaf dies are PERFECT for watercolouring! (left) Maple / (right) Oak.


For my first card, I used the Large Stitched Maple die.And this card, I used the Large Stitched Oak die.

For the background of the card, I made white tone-on-tone leafy patterns. I die cut several stitched leaves from white cardstock, and then randomly adhered them on white card base using double-sided tape (as shown in the picture).
Watercolouring!! I used the Altenew Liquid Watercolours – my most favourite watercolour medium these days. :) I used Sweet Leaf, Paper Bag, Lime, Ruby Red, Espresso.
Once the watercoloured maple leaf was dry, I adhered it on the centre of the card using foam tape, and then added the sentiments.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Thankful” from Burnt Orange (for maple card), Midnight Green (for oak card) cardstock, shadow from vellum paper using the Thankful Shadow dies, and then glue them together. For the tiny “Thank you” sentiment, I used the Tiny Words stamp set.
I decorated the card with some autumn coloured sequins and clear droplets.
I love these two stitched leaves. It’s so versatile!!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy Monday, crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop!! If you arrived here from Virginia Lu’s blog you are on the right track!

Here is BRAND NEW Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set! Isn’t it gorgeous?!!
I started by stamping one of solid flower images from the Dainty Bouquet set on watercolour paper using Sand Dunes dye ink. I then painted over the solid stamped image with the Metallic Watercolors – it’s like doing no-line watercolouring. Once it was dry, I die cut it with the matching die.
I die cut the Striped Leaf Cover Frame from white cardstock, mounted to the white card base using double-sided tape, and then adhered floral image & sentiment banner using foam tape.
Look at these metallic colours. They are rich, creamy, opaque and also blend well between colours!!

SSS Cheer and Joy Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Saturday!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Nichol Spohr’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I used the Christmas Foliage die set along with the other Christmas-themed die sets. I die cut Christmas berries from Lipstick Red and kraft card stock, leaves from Green Apple, Green Leafy and Mint card stock using the Christmas Foliage die set. I die cut the word “JOY” from white card stock 5 times, stacked them up using fine tip glue pen, and then applied Antique Linen Distress ink onto it. I die cut tiny snowflakes from white card stock using the Stitched Flakes die.
I adhered the word “JOY” vertically onto the ivory card base first, and then added berries and leaves near the “JOY” using foam tape. I decorated the card with tiny snowflakes, clear sequins, white dots. I added opaque white ink splatters all over the card front as well.

For my second card, I used the Pinecone Background stamp as my main supply. This. Is. really AMAZING!!
I stamped images on watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia, then roughly coloured stamped images with Altenew Liquid Watercolors: Ruby Red, Paper Bag, Espresso, Mountain Mist, Lime and Sweet Leaf.
I die cut the Lea Snowflake from white card stock, the word “Joyful” from Lipstick Red, shadow from white. Once the main panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements using foam tape. I added, of course, opaque white ink splatters all over the card because, it’s Christmas!! :D
