SSS Wednesday Challenge: Happy 9th Birthday

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
I am so honoured to be a guest designer over at Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge for the month of April!!

Wednesday Challenge team celebrated their 9th birthday on April 1st so I created a watercolour floral birthday card to celebrate their success!!

I die cut fishtail banner from the right part of white paper panel using the SSS Basic Banners die set first – I used it as a shaker window panel.
Next, I stamped the sentiment “Birthday Wishes” from the SSS Big U Words set on white card stock in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink – I masked “Big” and “To” using Post-It Note because just needed “Birthday Wishes”. I then trimmed it out using small sized fishtail banner die in the SSS Stitched Banners die set.
I stamped and watercoloured flowers & leaves from the SSS Even More Spring Flowers set, then die cut them with the matching dies.

Flora & Fauna: Sending good vibes

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a watercoloured flower card to share with you using the newly released Flora & Fauna Live Life Wildflowers and Texture Five stamp sets – these two are my favourites among entire new products!!
Flora & Fauna Live Life Wildflowers Stamp Set (Left)
Flora & Fauna Texture Five Stamp Set (Right)

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Love Bug set on the centre of watercolour paper panel with VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then stamped solid flowers from the Texture Five set around sentiment area with Festive Berries (red) and Wild Honey (yellow) Distress inks, freely brushed over the stamped flowers with clean water. Distress inks react with water!
Next, I stamped outlined flowers, leaves, and bees from the Live Life Wildflowers set (as shown in the picture) with VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, lightly coloured them with watercolours. Grey dots are from the Texture Five stamp set.
Once the panel was completely dry, I trimmed the panel out using scallop panel die in the MFT Blueprints 27 Die-namics.
Sending good vibes to you!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew: Focus on YOU

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I have a watercoloured flower card to share with you using brand new Altenew Focus on You stamp set.

Here is what I came up with:
To create the card, I lightly traced a circle on the centre of a watercolour paper panel using a circle die. I then stamped the sentiment from the Focus on You set on panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. Next, I stamped flowers & leaves (from the Focus on You set) on a separate watercolour paper using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink, gently coloured them with watercolour medium, and then fussy cut them out – You can easily make when you use the matching die set. I mounted the sentiment panel on white card base using Altenew glue tape first, and then adhered the watercoloured flowers onto the card (as shown in the picture) using foam tape. I added some dark brown ink splatters around the sentiment area.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew March 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Anna Komenda’s blog you are on the right track!
For my cards today, I am featuring so beautiful Sweet Rose Bouquet and Wildflower Garden stamp sets. Oh, I love these two flower sets so much!!
For my first card, I tried to make a simple yet vintage floral wedding card using the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set. I stamped layered roses & leaves on the centre of watercolour paper panel using several dye inks:
Rose petals: (light to dark) Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Midnight Violet
Leaves: Forest Glades, Evergreen
I then die cut the letter “W” from the stamped panel using the Caps Bold Alphabet die set.
I mounted the stamped panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the letter “W” in the exact place using foam tape. I lightly coloured the letter “W” using Antique Linen Distress ink, then added red ink splatters around the stamped rose bouquet.

Here is another floral card with the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set – It’s my most favourite set among the entire March release products. I stamped them on white paper panel using dye inks:
Rose petals: (light to dark) Ocean Waves, Dusk, Desert Night
(and) Turquoise, Tide Blue, Starlight
Leaves: Limestone, Silver Stone, Industrial Diamond
(and) Forest Glades
I then stamped the sentiment from the Wildflower Garden set on the left part of the stamped panel in pigment black ink, added water droplets using Glossy Accents.

My last card today, I created a (kind of) CAS card with the Wildflower Garden stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on the centre of watercolour paper panel first, and then stamped the flowers & leaves using several dye inks.
