SSS Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop – Day 2

Happy New Year, crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

Today, I will share 4 cards using Love You (December-released) products only because Love You, Too products arrived late but don’t worry! I will post new projects using Love You, Too products from next week. So, shall we get started? :D

For my first card, I used the You Have My Heart & the With All My Heart along with other SSS goodies. I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangles die set first. I stamped flowers using Antique Linen Distress ink, watercoloured the stamped images using Distress inks:
Red flowers: Festive Berries, Candied Apple and Fired Brick
Leaves: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive
Flower buds: Wild Honey / Branches: Vintage Photo

I die cut the sentiment from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper using the With All My Heart die. I also die cut bird couple & wedding ring.

Once the watercoloured floral panel was dry, I added sentiment & lovely bird couple as shown in the picture using foam tape. I love this adorable bird couple. :D


For my second card, I used the Splendid Leaves embossing folder & the Floral Card Front die. I applied Distress inks to the inside of an embossing folder first, and then spritzed the inked area with water. After that, I ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine – Ohhhh, I love a watercolour look!!

I die cut the Floral Card Front from thick white cardstock and added onto the background panel using foam tape.



For my second card, I used the Mini Interactive Envelope, the Detail Swirls Plate and the Mini Hearts Party dies. I simply prepared 6 red-coloured mini envelopes, a mini love message card, and a wedding ring, and then made a simply Valentine’s Day card. :)

The new Mini Hearts Party die is so handy. We can make many hearts with a single cut, yay!

For this lovely “XOXO” message, I used the Love Greetings MIX stamp set.


My last card for the hop, I used the Layering Hearts stencil, the With All My Heart and the Love Birds die. I laid the heart stencil on an A2 sized white paper panel in place, applied (from the top) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress inks using blending brush.

I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock using the With All My Heart die, the Love Birds from red cardstock, and then adhered them over the panel using foam tape. I decorated the card with red heart die cuts & clear jewels.

Hello, hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh 7th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop. Pretty Pink Posh turned 7! Come join this 3 days celebration for fun, inspiration and surprises. Let’s start!!

For my first card, actually this is my first card in 2021, I’m featuring brand new Peonies stencil along with the With Love shaker die.

I laid the Peonies stencil on A2 sized watercolour paper panel in place first, and then applied Distress inks onto the paper panel – Tattered Rose & Fired Brick for flowers, Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive for leaves. I added red ink splatters all over the floral panel. I die cut heart shaped “with love” sentiment from white cardstock using the With Love shaker die, then decorated the edge with the new Sweetheart Rhinestones.



For my second card, I made a fun birthday shaker card with the new Birthday Cake dies.

I die cut the Birthday Cake panel from thick white cardstock first, and then die cut it from pale grey cardstock again. I inked balloons & cakes with Distress inks, then inlaid all elements in place.

For the middle part of the cake, I adhered acetate sheet to the back of them, filled with Sweetheart Rhinestones, White Hearts Clay Confetti and Sparkling Clear Sequins.


For my last card for the hop, I made a slimline birthday card with the new Slimline Peekaboo Windows die set – it is my first slimline card!! :D

I die cut stitched 3.25″ x 8.25″ base panel from white cardstock using the Slimline Peekaboo Windows die set first, and then made 3 square windows to the centre of the panel. I made colourful bokeh background using the new Layered Bokeh stencils. On the centre of the card, I added Copic coloured monkeys and leaves for fun!

Here is a closer look:

Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp DieCember 2020 Release Blog Hop. I’m super-duper excited to be a part of this fabulous blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I used the Turtle Doves die set as my main supply. Oh, isn’t this couple so lovely?!! I die cut the turtle doves from watercolour paper first, and then ink blended them with several Distress inks. I also die cut mistletoe from green apple cardstock, ribbon & tiny hearts from lipstick red cardstock. I used glitter gold cardstock for beaks because it’s Christmas, lol!

For the background, I heat embossed the Holiday Words background onto watercolour paper panel in white first, and then made circle on the centre of the panel with the Circle Masks stencils & Distress inks: (from the largest circle) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple. I tore up the top & bottom parts of the background panel, mounted it on Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base, then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. I also decorated the card with clear snowflakes in the Snowy Pines sequins.



For my second card, I used the Paper Hugs & the Detail Bohemian Plate dies. I started by making a beautiful patterned panel using the Detail Bohemian Plate die. I then made circle patterns (like the first card) with the Circle Masks stencils and blue coloured Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Paper Hugs die – it is so adorable sentiment die!!

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Holly Jolly Release Blog Hop. Woohoo!! If you arrived here from super talented Lisa Addesa’s blog you are on the right track!

For my card today, I’m featuring the Scattered Stars stencil along with the CZ Design Joy Script die. First, I die cut snowflakes from thick white cardstock using the Lea Snowflake & Daphne Snowflake dies. I carefully applied glossy accent onto both snowflake die cuts, and then sprinkled Unicorn Confetti Glitters onto them. Woo hoo, I love, love, love these sparkling snowflakes! I left them aside to dry.

Ohhh.. I love star shapes! First, I applied several dark coloured Distress inks onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel using the new blender brushes – I used Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot Distress inks. I laid the Scattered Stars stencil over the panel, then applied Gina K Designs Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel. Super shiny, isn’t it?!!

I want to show you a little closer! :D

Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Make Merry Release Blog Hop. I’m especially excited to be a part of this amazing blog hop because it’s Christmas hop, woohoo!! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I am featuring the new Center Cut Holiday Floral background stamp & the Deco Hat Gnome die. As many of you know watercolouring is my most favourite way to play with in my craft room! With these awesome goodies, I made a no-line watercoloured card.

I stamped the holiday flowers on A2 sized watercolour paper panel using Antique Linen Distress ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens:
(Flowers & Berries) Red Apple, Wild Phlox
(Leaves) Sliced Kiwi, Aqua Splash, Indigo Batik
(Stems) Yellow Ochre, Caramel Pecan
I coloured with Aqua Flow Pen first, then added water using water brush.

Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I cut the centre of the panel using Stitched Circle die.

For the Deco Hat Gnome, I die cut Deco Hat from several colour cardstock – Lipstick Red, Sunshine, Mint and Green Apple. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joyful dies.

Isn’t this gnome so cute?!! :D


For my second card, I used the Falling Leaves layering stencils & the Warm Hugs dies. with the first leaves stencil, I inked with Green Apple dye ink. The second leaves stencil, I inked with Green Leaf dye ink. The berries stencil, I inked with Lipstick Red dye ink. Lastly I laid acorn stencil over the panel, then inked with Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Warm Hugs dies.

It is so easy to make pretty card with layering stencils! :D

For my last project for the hop, I made a very simple Christmas ornament ball with Warm Hugs dies. I made thick white “Warm Hugs” word die cut, then glued firmly to the bottom of the clear plastic ball using multi medium matte. I filled a clear ball with lots of clear sparkling sequins & glitters.
