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.

Altenew Whimsical Wonder Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Whimsical Wonder Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from Tricia Schaden’s blog you are on the right track!


(Tie-dye image source from Pinterest)
Google said that tie-dye is a trend that was hugely popular during the pandemic last year when everyone was stuck at home and trying different DIY things – colouring clothes in multiple shades was one of them. However, it seems that now everyone is obsessed with the style. Yes, tie-dye is still one of the biggest trends in 2021. So I made faux tie-dye background with brand new Tie Dye Motifs Stamp Set! Oh, it was SO FUN!!

For these faux tie-dye backgrounds, I ink blended onto whole A2 watercolour paper pnael with light coloured Distress inks first. Next, I applied darker coloured Distress inks to stamps, sprayed water over the inked stamps, then stamped them on the panel. As you know, Distress inks react with water.


First card: I applied Victorian Velvet Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye and Victorian Velvet. I added Hibiscus & “hugs” sentiment on the centre of the card.



Second card: I applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey and Broken China. I dry embossed the panel with the Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder. I added Leafy Wreath & “Thanks” sentiment banner on the centre of the card.



Third card: I applied Scattered Straw Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye, Festive Berries and Victorian Velvet. I added “Thinking of You” sentiment & outlined rose die cut on the centre of the card.



Last card: I applied Milled Lavender Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet. I dry embossed the panel with the Ranunculus Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder. I added “Thanks” sentiment on the bottom of the card.

I started by stamping the Coral Sunset onto watercolour paper panel using black pigment ink.

I coloured the stamped image with Altenew liquid watercolours:
(Flower petals) Crimson, Ruby Red, Purple Wine and Paper Bag

I love olive green from Lime and Espresso. :D

For the bottom of the card, I decorated with Dotted washi tape – it is one of my favourite washi tapes!

Altenew Storybook Fantasy Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Storybook Fantasy Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Therese Calvird’s blog you are on the right track!




I started by stamping the Fairy Tale Florals on the top-right corner of an A2 sized watercolour panel using Faded Jeans Distress ink. I then freely coloured the stamped image using water brush – I made blue no-line watercoloured flowers mixed with green. Distress inks react to water so, this technique is so fun!

For the sentiment on the bottom left, I stamped it from the Adore You set with Jet Black dye ink.

Take a closer look:





For my second card, I used the Floating Foliage 3D embossing folder along with the Fairy Tale Florals set. I placed an A2 sized watercolour panel inside the Floating Foliage 3D embossing folder and ran it through the die cutting machine first, and then smoothly ink blended onto the panel with pastel-toned Distress inks – I love this pattern!! I heat embossed the Fairy Tale Florals on vellum paper in white, then die cut it with the matching die. I mounted the background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the vellum flower die cut & sentiment on the card.

For my foliage background panel, I applied some soft-coloured Distress inks using mini round blending tool first, and then added darker colours onto each leaf using brand new Detailed Blending Brushes. I love these detailed brushes like recently released watercolour brushes!!

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Antique Rose Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Antique Rose Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Lilith Eeckels’s blog you are on the right track!


This month’s Altenew Craft-A-Flower set features a gorgeous Antique Rose!


I die cut flowers from shades of red, leaves from shades of green using the CAF Antique Rose Layering die set first, and then layered all pieces together using fine tip glue pen just the way the guidebook instructs it.

For the background, I dry embossed onto kraft paper panel using the Mod Squares 3D embossing folder. To blend in with the antique roses, I tore some parts of the background panel.



For my second card, I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper, layered them together, and then watercoloured them with Distress inks.
