SSS Blossoms & Butterflies Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy, happy Saturday, crafty friends!
I’m so excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Blossoms & Butterflies Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

My cards today, I am featuring so lovely Bouquet of Roses Stencil – it is definitely one of my favourites among entire new release! With this beautiful stencil, I made messy watercoloured flower cards.
I positioned the Bouquet of Roses Stencil over the Wonky Stitched watercolour paper panel in place first, and then traced flowers & leaves with a pencil. I then coloured all flowers & leaves with STAEDTLER Aqua Pencils – these watercolour pencils are good-value-for-money! :D
Next, I brushed all pencil coloured images with a fine tip paint brush. To be honest, I really liked it BUT, I didn’t change my mind to make messy watercoloured flowers, haha!
Ta-da! I freely brushed over the images with a wet paint brush! I LOVE IT!!
For the sentiment, I used the Comfort and Prayers Stamp Set.

Here is one more messy watercoloured floral card with the Bouquet of Roses Stencil. I used the same technique but different colour combo.
I coloured flowers & leaves with watercolour pencils first, and then brushed pencil coloured images with a wet paint brush.

I mounted all elements (as shown in the picture) on beige card base using foam tape. I embellished with a few self-adhesive pearls.

Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration! I’m so thrilled to be a part of this delightful celebration and to share a couple of floral cards I made using Fancy Floral Die Set. If you arrived here from Kathleen Graumüller’s blog you are on the right track!

I die cut the Fancy Floral 1 from vellum paper, the Fancy Floral 2 from white card stock. I then glued them together using fine tip glue pen.
For card base, I ink blended onto it with Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks. I then mounted the Fancy Floral panel using foam tape.
For the sentiment & flowers on the centre of the card front, I used Everyday Musings Scrapbook Ephemera Pack – love them all so much!!

Here is another card with the Fancy Floral 2 Die. I die cut the Fancy Floral 2 from white & green apple card stocks first. Next, I adhered the white Fancy Floral panel over red card front using fine tip glue pen, and then partially inlaid green coloured die cuts in place. For the sentiment, I also used Everyday Musings Scrapbook Ephemera Pack.

Fancy Floral 1 & 2 Dies are my all-time favourites!!

SSS Fresh Bloom Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy, happy Saturday, crafty friends!
I’m suuuuper excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Fresh Bloom Blog Hop! Oh, I love the title, FRESH BLOOM!!

My card today, I am featuring gorgeous Outline Floral Cross Die & Pretty Peonies Background Stamp along with other SSS products.
I started by stamping the Pretty Peonies Background onto watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then watercoloured the stamped images with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel.
Once the panel was dry, I die cut Stitched Circle from the right side of the coloured panel. I die cut the Outline Floral Cross from thick white card stock as well. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Tiny Words Faith Set on kraft card stock in white, trimmed it with the Nested Banners Die, inked up with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I LOVE the new Tiny Words Faith Stamp Set so much. It is a MUST HAVE!!
I mounted floral panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements using foam tape.
