PPP May Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh May 2017 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Nina-Marie Trapani blog you are on the right track.

I have two adorable cards to share with you today using the Woodland Critters stamp setI know, you already love this super cute and lovable set! It was a HUGE HIT, wasn’t it?!! – along with other brand new products.
I started by stamping all adorable images from the Woodland Critters set (green leaves from the Bold Blooms set, blue stars from the Thoughtful Greetings set) on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in black pigment ink. I then watercoloured them with Distress markers. I also coloured the background with Antique Linen Distress ink. Once the panel was completely dry, I trimmed the bottom of the panel down using the Scallop Borders 2 dies. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Woodland Critters set on dark chocolate card stock in white, and then fussy cut it out. I mounted all elements as shown to top-folded kraft card base using foam tape. To finish it off, I embellished with a few 4mm Nature sequins.
These Woodland Critters are so super cute!! Oh, I LOVE them soooooo much!!!!

For my second card, I used Copic markers for colouring. I created green grass field, blue sky, and white clouds background on watercolour paper, trimmed it down using the stitched rectangle panel die in the Stitched Notes die set. Next, I stamped images from the Woodland Critters set on white card stock in Black Licorice hybrid ink, coloured them with Copic markers, die cut them with the matching dies. For the sentiment, I used the Thoughtful Greetings stamp set.
“Everything is better when you’re around!”

Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take One + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m SO excited (and so honoured) to be May’s Leading Lady with Winnie & Walter! Yay, May is one of my favourite months!!

Today I will be sharing with you my watercolor floral background with the In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves stamp sets.

I started by heat embossing outlined flowers and leaves from two flower stamp sets (In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves) on watercolor paper in white. I stamped images using Versamark embossing ink, and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I then watercolored the stamped background with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor and a wet flat brush. I applied clean water on the panel first, and then added warm colours. I used (dark to light) No.36 Wine Red, No.32 Red, No.33 Orange, No.43 Mid Yellow.
For the image on the watercoloured panel, I decided not to color. I just stamped an adorable baby elephant from the Welcome to the Family set in black ink, and then die cut it with the Welcome to the Family Cutaways. For the sentiment, I heat embossed “Sending big hugs” from the Big Hugs set on black card stock in white, and then trimmed it out with the Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways.
Once the watercolored panel was completely dry, I trimmed it out with the larger rectangle panel die in the Essentials: Lana Cutaways. Finally, I mounted all elements as shown to top-folded white card base using foam tape.

Shay has generously donated a $30 gift card for me to give away here! To be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment on my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts (every Saturday in May). I’ll announce the winner at the end of the month! :)

Allow to dry completely. 4) Stamped sea creatures from the MermazingExquisite Ocean sets with some hybrid inks: Summer SplashBlu RaspberryTropical Teal, and Nightshift Blue. 5) Added water droplets and white ink splatters. 6) Stamped and Copic coloured mermaid from the Mermazing set, and then die cut it using the Mermazing Die-namics. 7) Stamped the sentiment from the Mermazing set on white card base in Black Licorice hybrid ink. 8) Mounted the ocean background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added mermaid die cut on the card front using foam tape.

MFT May Release Countdown – Day 1

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown Day 1. We’ve reached the final day of the countdown and all of the new products will be available at 9 pm ET today in the MFT store.
My card today features the More Essential Sentiments Stamp Set.
I created a shaker flower card again! The Shaker Flower Die-namics is FAB set!!

To create my shaker, I die cut flower and leaves from glitter card stock using the Shaker Flower Die-namics. I then adhered 2″ Circle Shaker Pouch at the back of the shaker flower die cut using double-sided tape. Inside the shaker is a mixture of sequins (Easy peasy, right?!!). For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the More Essential Sentiments set on black card stock in white, and then trimmed it out.
The Shaker Flower and the More Essential Sentiments are a match made in heaven!!

Make sure to check out MFT Blog for all the info for today along with links to all the other DT member’s blog posts.

See you TONIGHT for the release!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Mother’s Day Card

Hello crafty friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Today I am popping in to share with you my mother’s day card with the SSS Suzy’s In Full Bloom Watercolor Paintable Prints and the Mom and Dad Icons Stamp & Die Set.
I started by colouring beautiful flowers (from the Suzy’s In Full Bloom Watercolor Paintable Prints) with Copic markers, and then fussy cut them. I then adhered flower cluster on the right bottom part of Fog Gray card base using foam tape. I added white ink splatters.
For the sentiment, I stamped the word “MOM” from the Mom and Dad Icons set in black pigment ink, die cut them with the matching dies. I then heat embossed another sentiment on black card stock in white.
A bunch of flowers fit perfectly on the mother’s day card! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely weekend!!
