Winnie & Walter World Cardmaking Day 2017 Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, happy World Cardmaking Day!
I’m so thrilled (and honoured) to be a part of the Winnie and Walter World Cardmaking Day 2017 Blog Hop!!

Today I want to share with you my Christmas card with some Winnie and Walter Christmas themed stamp sets!
I started by stamping poinsettias (from the In Bloom Elsas Flora set), berries (from the Winter Woodland set), sentiment (from the Merry and Bright set), santa hat (from the Season’s Tweetings set) on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then watercoloured the stamped images with Distress inks and water brush.
Before mounting it on red card base, I tore the top part of the panel – Tearing it off at the top is something I rarely do, but works well on this card!!

GIVEAWAY!!
5 random winners in total will be drawn from all the comments left on the different stops along the hop. Each winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Winnie & Walter shop.

Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to the second day of the Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 14 brand new stamp sets, 15 new die sets, and re-inkers in September! If you arrived here from Keeway Tsao’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first two cards, I used the Cotton Comfort stamp set along with the Holiday Wishes stamp set.
I love white on kraft! This is one of my favourite colour combinations for Christmas cards. I stamped the large cotton flower from the Cotton Comfort set on kraft card stock in brown pigment ink, coloured it with white polychromos pencil, and then die cut it with the matching die. For the sentiment panel, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Holiday Wishes set in white, stamped cotton flowers randomly using Tea Dye Distress ink, added white ink splatters, ink blended all edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I tied the jingle bells on the cotton flower because it’s a Christmas card! :D
I randomly stamped cotton flowers from the Cotton Comfort set on watercolour paper panel in brown pigment ink, and then watercoloured the panel using Distress inks and a wet paint brush. I added white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I used the Holiday Wishes stamp set.

For my third card, I made a shaker Christmas card using the Night Before Christmas stamp & die set. I stamped cotton flowers from the Cotton Comfort set randomly onto white paper panel using Silver Stone dye ink, then cut a Christmas tree window on the centre of the stamped panel using the Night Before Christmas die. For the ombré stamped tree, I used the Bamboo, Forest Glades, and Evergreen dye inks.

For my last card, I made a watercoloured flower card using brand new Just Because stamp set. It looks gorgeous in my eyes, haha!! I stamped the flower cluster on watercolour paper in black pigment ink, lightly watercoloured the stamped image using watercolour pencils and water brush, and then fussy cut it. I mounted it on the left side of kraft card using foam tape, and then added white ink splatters.

SSS STAMPtember: PPP Damask Greetings

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
Today I want to share with you my damask Christmas card with the SSS & Pretty Pink Posh STAMPtember Damask Greetings stamp set.
These damask designs are simple yet elegant and appropriate for CAS Christmas cards!

To create this card, I 1) Drew grid lines on watercolour paper panel using a pencil. 2) Stamped damask images from the Damask Greetings set with some Distress inks: Mermaid Lagoon, Crushed Olive, Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough, Wild Honey. 3) Brushed the stamped images lightly using a wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water! 4) Die cut the word “Joy” from metallic white card stock using the Big Joy die five times, and then stacked them up using fine tip glue pen. 5) Mounted the damask background panel on top-folded Fog Gray card base using foam tape, added the sentiment die cut on the card front using foam tape as well.
I tried to create a clean and simple Christmas card. :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Happy Monday, crafty friends!
We are already passing through the middle of this month, and that means it’s time for another beautiful Build-A-Flower set! This month it’s Build-A-Flower: Rose. Roses are heart-stoppingly beautiful, and their aroma is equally show-stopping. With such an impressive presence, it is no wonder that roses have symbolized some powerful elements throughout human history. We tried to capture the timeless beauty of this flower by giving it extra depth with six layers. Achieve a realistic look with this Rose set which is a must-have for every flower lover! It’s only available as a set, not individual product.

I stamped layered roses and leaves on white paper panel with dye inks, sentiment using Walnut Stain Distress ink. I then added red ink splatters.
