SSS Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday, crafty friends! I’m so excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop! You may be starting the hop here or coming from Yana’s blog and seeing her amazing cards, either way I hope you enjoy all the fabulous inspiration from the hop!

Yay! I enjoy this time of the year the best! It is quite clear that we will be a busy bee creating Christmas cards in the fall/winter season. :D

For my first card, I used the Therefore Background Stamp along with the Dancing Deer & Rina Snowflake Dies. I stamped script sentiment on watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then roughly watercoloured to the stamped panel using Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set, added opaque white ink splatters.
I die cut Dancing Deer from glitter white card stock & Rina Snowflakes from white card stock. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted the panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all others using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Mod Trees Background Stamp along with the CZ Design Merry Die & Winter Scene Set. I stamped Mod Trees on watercolour paper using light coloured dye ink first, and then trimmed it with Stitched Rectangle panel die. I then watercoloured over the stamped images. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Merry Dies.
I stamped & watercoloured deers & trees from the Winter Scene set, die cut them with the matching dies, and then adhered them between sentiments using foam tape.

I’m a classic red, green, kraft and white Christmas colour combo type of person, what about you?

Pinkfresh Studio October Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio October Release Blog Hop!
We have 5 stamp & die sets, 1 sentiment stamp set, 9 stand-alone dies in October – all of them are MUST-HAVES!!

My cards today, I am featuring the Happy Hugs Stamp & Die Set along with the Geo Star 2 Die.

I started by stamping a cute hugging bear on kraft card stock using black dye ink. I coloured the stamped image with polychromos colored pencils, and then die cut it with matching die. I heat embossed the sentiment on black card stock in white.
For the background panel, I did dry embossing with the Geo Star 2 die. I then inked all edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink, coloured 4 (kind of) star shapes using white polychromos pencil.

Here is another Christmas card with the Happy Hugs Stamp Set. I randomly stamped bears & “hugs” words on kraft paper panel using black dye ink, coloured them with polychromos pencils.
For the sentiment, I used a free HUGS die. I die cut it from white card stock five times, stacked them up using fine tip glue pen.

Spellbinders Cuppa Coffee, Cuppa Tea Collection Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
(It’s my second blog hop post of the day, for the Waffle Flower Release Blog Hop, click HERE.)
Welcome to the Spellbinders Cuppa Coffee, Cuppa Tea Collection Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Justine Hovey’s blog you are on the right track!

Honestly I love coffee more than tea but just wanted to use green colours to my card so decided to use tea pot rather than use coffee mug :) All Spellbinders tea pot dies are so pretty!!
I die cut Tropical Paradise from watercolour paper first, and then ink blended on the panel with Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough Distress inks. I then mounted inked panel on white card base using fine tip glue pen.
I die cut a tea pot from white card stock using the Shapeabilities Coffee Brewing Etched dies, tiny leaves from white & green card stocks using the Shapeabilities Stack o’ Cups Etched dies. I then adhered them on the centre of the card front as shown in the picture using foam tape.

Here is a closer look:

Waffle Flower October Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF! I am so happy to be a part of the Waffle Flower October Release Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from an amazing Laura Bassen’s blog you are on the right track!
This Christmas, make your cards stand out with Waffle Flower Christmas Tree Combo (stamp, pop-up tree die)! This tree lies flat for mailing but pops up when you pull the tab! You can make it pull on either side and lock it into place and keep the tree popped up! The matching stamp set provides you a quick way to customize your tree and the Pull-tab Tree Pop-up Add-on Die (available separately) adds another layer of dimension.

Also in Waffle Flower’s October release, you’ll find Hello Pumpkin (stamp, die, combo) that features the popular mice illustrated by Liz Mytinger in a happy fall theme; Yippee (stamp, die, combo) to help you tell your friends and family how proud you are of their success and achievements; Sweater Weather (stamp, die, combo) that can be customized to your heart’s content; Coffee Time (stamp, die, combo) is the perfect set to go with a gift card to a favorite coffee shop; My Sunshine (stamp) will help you create beautiful cards to let your friends and family know how important they are to you.

For my cards today, I used the Sweater Weather Stamp & Die Set – it’s definitely one of my favourites!

To create the card, I stamped a winter sweater on kraft card using black dye ink, coloured it with red polychromos colour pencil, die cut it with the matching die. Next, I stamped the sentiment & tiny dots from the Sweater Weather set on kraft card base using black dye ink. I decorated the card front with washi tape, Christmas coloured twine, snowflake sequins, and then adhered the sweater die cut on the centre of the card using foam tape.

Here is another card with the Sweater Weather Stamp Set. I stamped sweaters, sentiment, tiny dots on watercolour paper panel using black pigment ink first, and then watercoloured them!

Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Kymona Tracey’s blog you are on the right track!

Create stunning works of art with our Watercolor Brush Markers! The barrel is filled with water-based color, and coordinates with our line of inks. The flexible, yet sturdy bristles on the brush tip allow you to form both broad and fine strokes. Color can be applied straight from the marker, or diluted with water for a softer look!

Here is what I came up with:
For my first card, I used the Enchanted Iris stamp set along with the new Watercolor Brush Markers Spring Garden set! I stamped Irises on watercolour paper panel with black pigment ink first, and then coloured them with brand new Watercolor Brush Markers set:
Flower petals: Midnight Violet, Autumn Blaze, Warm Sunshine
Leaves: Limeade, Emerald, Moss
At the top right corner, I decorated it with the Creative Edges: Lace die cuts.

For the second card, I used the Inked Flora stamp & die set. I used the Rubellite & Warm Sunshine for flower, Limeade & Emerald for leaves.
I die cut the watercoloured flower & leaves using the Inked Flora die set, and then adhered them on white card base using foam tape. For a tiny butterfly,  I used the Painted Butterflies stamp set.

GIVEAWAY 1!
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $40 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, October 10th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 10/12/2018.
