My cards today, I am featuring the Forever and Always and the Happy Bloom sets – These two flower sets are truly gorgeous!!
For my first card, I made a watercolour flower card with the Forever and Always stamp & die set. I stamped a flower bouquet onto watercolour paper in pigment black first, coloured it with watercolours, and then die cut it with the matching die. I watercoloured the background panel with shades of pink.
I mounted the watercoloured panel on Spicy Yogurt card base using glue tape first, and then all elements as shown to card front using foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment from the Forever and Always set inside the card in black. Oh, that sentiment is so romantic!!

For my second card, I used the Happy Bloom stamp set. I stamped flowers & leaves randomly onto white paper panel in black dye ink. I then coloured the background with the Artist Markers Set A: (from light to dark) Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Desert Night. For the stamped flowers & leaves, I coloured them with polychromos pencils.

Pretty Pink Posh Turns 4!

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!!
Welcome to the third and last day of the Pretty Pink Posh 4th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop! You may have just arrived here from amazingly talented Mindy Baxter.

For today’s card, I’m featuring the new Pretty Petunias, Hummingbird Thanks, and Love Sentiments sets.
As many of you already know that Ultra Violet is PANTONE® colour of the year 2018! Honestly it isn’t my favourite colour, BUT.. Pretty Petunias set told me to use that to my card! :D
I stamped petunias (from the Pretty Petunias set) and hummingbird (from the Hummingbird Thanks set) on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured them using mixed with Derwent inktense colored pencils and Seedless Preserves Distress ink. Before mounting all watercoloured images, I ink blended on the bottom left corner of the card base using Seedless Preserves Distress ink.
Look at the hummingbird! Oh, it is so lovely!!

GIVEAWAY!!
We’ll be giving away 2 $50 gift certificates to random comments left on the different stops every day! That’s right, we’re giving away a total of SIX $50 gift certificates!

Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop! Here are the new and (of course) fabulous products we have in January!! If you arrived here from Erum Tasneem’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first two cards, I used the Creative Edges: Lace die and the Rose Flurries 3D die set. As soon as I saw the Rose Flurries 3D, I completely fell in love with it! I’m sure you’ll like it, too.
I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from white card stock, then die cut from the right side of the panel using brand new Creative Edges: Lace die. For the flowers, I die cut them from coloured card stocks using the Rose Flurries 3D die set, then made a bunch of flowers.
For my second card, I used glitter gold flowers on navy card base!! It’s simply beautiful and elegant!

The new sentiment “Thinking of You” die is so gorgeous!! First, I made a floral background using the Flower Arrangement stamp set. Next I die cut the “Thinking of You” from the centre of the stamped panel. I stacked 4 other die cuts under the stamped sentiment cut using fine tip glue pen. After mounting, I lightly coloured the sentiment with Tattered Rose Distress ink and water brush.

Newton’s Nook Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Newton’s Nook Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Kay Miller’s blog you are on the right track!

My card today features the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set and the Snow Globe Shaker die set.
To create the card, I stamped town from the Snow Globe Scenes set on watercolour paper in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured it with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then fussy cut it out. I then placed it inside the Snow Globe with some tiny snowflakes & clear sequins. For the snowy night background, I heat embossed santa sleigh from the Snow Globe Scenes set on watercolour panel with white embossing powder, and then ink blending on the panel using Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves Distress inks. I added white ink splatters all over the panel. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added shaker snow globe using foam tape.
