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.

PPP September Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh September 2017 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Shannon McComb’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I used brand new Autumn Blooms stamp set along with the Thoughtful Greetings sentiment stamp set. The Autumn Blooms set contains small flower & leaf images but we can create a bigger flowers with this set!
I started by stamping small flowers (from the Autumn Blooms set) onto the watercolour panel randomly using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then freely painted a circle around the middle of each flower using Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw Distress inks and a wet paint brush. Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I stamped leaves (from the Autumn Blooms set) between the flowers, and then coloured them with Mowed Lawn Distress ink and water brush. I added some red & yellow ink splatters as well. It’s not difficult is it?
For the sentiment, I used the Thoughtful Greetings stamp set. I heat embossed the “thank you” sentiment on black card stock in white, trimmed it down, and then put it up on the watercoloured floral panel using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Stitched Foliage dies and the Angel Friends stamp & die set along with the Giving Thanks stamp set.
I die cut the stitched leaves from watercolour paper using the Stitched Foliage dies, adhered them on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using glue pen. I then ink blended on it with Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Victorian Velvet Distress inks and mini ink blending tool. I roughly brushed the inked leaves with a wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water. Once the panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added white ink splatters and a few 3mm clear sequins.
For those adorable angels, I stamped them (from the Angel Friends set) on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured them with Copic markers, and then die cut them with the matching dies. For the sentiment, I used the Giving Thanks stamp set.

For my last card, I used the Angel Friends stamp & die set along with the Winter Wonderland set. Yay! I love Christmas card!!
I heat embossed snowflakes (from the Winter Wonderland set) on watercolour panel in white, and then made a snowy night scene using Peerless watercolors and a wet paint brush. Of course, I added white ink splatters and clear sequins!
I watercoloured all adorable images – angels, eskimo girl, polar bear, igloo – with Peerless watercolors.

SSS STAMPtember® 2017 Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends! Happy STAMPtember®!!
It’s September, my favourite time of year, and I am SUPER excited to be a part of the first day of the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop today!!

For my first two cards, I used the brand new You Got This stamp set & Damask stencil along with other SSS products.
To create this card, I laid the Damask stencil over the watercolour panel, and then inked over the stencil using some Distress inks and sponge daubers in rainbow order: (from the top left corner) Festive Berries, Scattered Straw, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, and Victorian Velvet. I then freely brushed on the panel with a wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water!! I added water drops and opaque white ink splatters all over the panel. Once the panel was dry, I heat embossed the edges of the panel with gold. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the You Got This set on black card stock in white, and then die cut it with the Stitched Banner die. I mounted the background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment banner, vellum butterflies (I used the Butterfly Drift die), gold sequins, clear droplets.
“You are strong and God is stronger, together you are unstoppable.” – I love this sentiment so much!!

For my second card, I created my own damask patterns on soft navy card base using the Damask stencil and white embossing paste. I die cut nearly half of the soft navy panel using the Wavy Scallop Stitches die. I then applied the damask pattern on the soft navy panel using white embossing paste. Once the panel was dry, I added some metallic silver & opaque white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the You Got This set on red card stock in white, and then trimmed it down as a small banner. I mounted the background panel on top-folded white card base using foam tape first, and then added the sentiment banner & gold sequins.

For my last card, I used the new Amazing Messages stamp set along with the Tickle Breeze die. I die cut the Tickle Breeze from an A2 sized watercolour panel, and then added rainbow colours using Distress inks and a wet paint brush: Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Faded Jeans, and Seedless Preserves. I added water drops. Next, I stamped the image from the Amazing Messages set on white card stock using Onyx Black pigment ink, lightly coloured inside the alphabets with watercoloured pencils, then fussy cut it. For other words, I heat embossed them on black card stock in white. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using foam tape first, and then added all elements as shown to the card front using foam tape as well.

Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
Welcome to the first day of the Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 13 brand new stamp sets, 12 new dies, and medium & large storage pouches in August! If you arrived here from Kymona Tracey’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first and second card, I used the Thick and Thin Alpha and the Charmed stamp sets along with the Painted Butterflies stamp set.
I stamped my own sentiment “Save the date!” from the Thick and Thin Alpha set on the centre of watercolour panel in black pigment ink, and then outlined flowers (from the Charmed set) and butterflies (from the Painted Butterflies set) around the sentiment area in black ink as well. I loosely coloured the stamped images with Distress inks and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using glue tape first, and then added water droplets using Glossy Accents.
In my second card, I stamped the word “Praying for you” from the Thick and Thin Alpha set on watercolour panel in black pigment ink, and then outlined flowers (from the Charmed set) and butterflies (from the Painted Butterflies set) around the sentiment area in black ink as well. I chose blue, green, and yellow Distress inks for watercolouring.

For my third card, I used the Circled Sentiments stamp set. I stamped 6 circled sentiments on watercolour panel in black pigment ink, and then roughly coloured around the stamped images with Distress inks in rainbow order. I added some ink splatters, then mounted the panel on navy card base using foam tape.

For my last card, I used the 3D Star die! I created a galaxy background using Distress inks first. I ink blended the panel with Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot Distress inks, then added metallic silver & opaque white ink splatters on the blended panel. I then die cut the 3D Star from watercolour paper, lightly coloured on it with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and a wet paint brush. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using glue tape first, and then added all elements as shown to the card front using foam tape.
