SSS Summer Fun!!

Hello crafty friends, happy Sunday!
I hope you are having a wonderful sunny weekend, cold winter here in Sydney though. ;)
I made 2 cards using the new Summer Flowers stamp set along with other SSS products.
For the first card, I started by stamping the sentiment from the Oh Happy Day set onto the centre of the watercolour panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, then summer flowers and leaves from the Summer Flowers set on the edges of the sentiment stamped panel in pigment black. I coloured all stamped images with Derwent inktense colored pencils first, and then lightly brushed them with water brush. I coloured the background with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut it with the Wonky Rectangle panel and then inked all edges of it with Scattered Straw Distress ink and mini ink blending tool. I mounted all elements as shown to white card base using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Summer Flowers and the Summertime Animals stamp sets. I randomly stamped images from two stamp sets on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in black and then coloured them with Peerless watercolors. Once the panel was dry, I die cut from the bottom right corner of the panel using the Stitches Circle die, decorated the panel with white twine. I stamped the sentiment (from the Summertime Animals set) on white card front in black pigment ink, and then mounted the watercoloured panel on it using foam tape.
Enjoy your summer!!

Altenew Thanks with Botanical Garden Stamp Set

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
I’m up on the Altenew blog today with my clean and simple watercolor flower card using the Botanical Garden Stamp Set.
I started by stamping flowers from the Botanical Garden set onto watercolor paper using embossing ink, heat embossed with Antique Gold Crisp embossing powder. I then watercolored flowers, fussy cut them. Next, I made the flower cluster and then adhered it on the right side of the Spicy Yogurt card base using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the word “thanks” from the Enchanted Iris die set. To finish it off, I decorated the card front with some enamel dots and the Gold Glitter Tape.

SSS Believe in You!

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Today I want to share with you a couple cards that I’ve made using the Simon Says Stamp Circular Lace stencil and the Believe stamp & die set.
When I see the Circular Lace stencil, it reminds me of “believe” word. I don’t know why but I think those items go well together!!

For my first card, I chose white & kraft colour combo. To create the background, I die cut the Wonky Rectangle panel from kraft card stock. I then laid the Circular Lace stencil over the kraft panel, taped it in place using washi tape, and then applied Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste using craft knife. Let dry!
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “believe” from metal silver card stock five times, then stacked them up using fine tip glue pen. Heat embossed the sentiment “in your dreams” from the Believe stamp set on Schoolhouse Red card stock in white. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on top-folded kraft card base using double-sided tape first, added a little bit of sparkle using shimmer silver spray ink, and then adhered sentiments using foam tape. To finished it off, I embellished with a few PPP gold sequins.

For my second card, I chose white, red, and black colour combo!! For the lace background, I used Festive Berries, Fired Brick Distress inks along with the Circular Lace stencil. After inking, I lightly brushed on the inked panel using water brush.

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

MFT WSC 335

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
Today I want to share with you my card for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 335.
Before I share my card, I have an announcement to make.. unfortunately, I have made the huge decision to step down from My Favorite Things design team due to my super busy work schedule. It was definitely one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made in my life.. MFT helped boost my career every month and was always there encourage and support me. I still can’t believe that I’ve left MFT team.. but one thing is certain – It was an incredible HONOUR and PRIVILEGE to be a part of the team for the past two years! It changed my life and career and I will forever be grateful for all they’ve done for me. I leave as MFT’s number one fan and will make sure to continuously share my MFT projects with you! I promise!!

Here is my take on the Sketch 335:
I started by stamping space scene from the Space Explorer set on watercolour panel using black pigment ink, and then trimmed the bottom of the stamped panel down using the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics. I then watercoloured them, added opaque white & pearl silver ink splatters all around the panel. I stamped and watercoloured an adorable space explorer on a separate watercolour paper, and then die cut it with the Space Explorer Die-namics. I die cut the Star Stripe from white card stock. Before I mount all elements, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom right corner of Primitive White card base in Black Licorice hybrid ink.
Space scene is always so fun to make!!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!
