SSS Let’s Connect Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello, hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Let’s Connect Release Blog Hop. Oh, I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track!

Are. You. Ready to enter the rainbow-coloured world? My cards will be full of rainbow colours today – just wanna say it “rainbowness.” Haha! :D
For my first card, I used the Rainbow Card die set along with the Unicorn Love stamp set. I think the Rainbow Card die set will be a BIG HIT!! I die cut rainbow & clouds from watercolour paper using the Rainbow Card die set, then applied SSS dye inks to each ray of the rainbow in order of rainbow colours:
(from the top red colour) Lipstick Red, Duckling, Green Apple, Audrey Blue and Deep Purple. I stamped a cute unicorn from the Unicorn Love set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured it with Copic markers.
I die cut the Detail Petal Plate from Neenah Smooth Desert Storm cardstock, then mounted it on the same Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape. I then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
I added many of bling-bling sequins & droplets on the rainbow rays!
It is another happy rainbow card on the rainbow shaped card base. I adhered the two clouds using foam tape first. I adhered the sun & other clouds to the back of the rainbow rays using double-sided tape, then adhered the rainbow rays in place.
Oh, I love it. It makes me so happy! I really wanna send you happy hugs!!

For my third cards, I used the Cosmos Bloom die along with Detail Petal Plate die.
I die cut several cosmos from watercolour paper using the Cosmos Bloom die first, then applied rainbow coloured Distress inks to them using Blender Brushes:
(Red) Festive Berries & Fired Brick
(Yellow) Fossilized Amber & Tea Dye
(Green) Crushed Olive & Evergreen Bough
(Blue) Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans
(Purple) Seedless Preserves & Fired Brick
I made a bouquet using rainbow coloured Cosmos Bloom & Eucalyptus Leaves die cuts, and then adhered on the centre of the Detail Petal Plate base using foam tape. I added stamens on the centre of each flower using PPP seed beads.
Here is another rainbow floral card with the Cosmos Bloom die. I adhered flower die cuts on watercolour paper panel, then blended the floral panel with Distress inks. I then washed the colours using a wet paint brush, added opaque white & metallic silver ink splatters all around the panel. I die cut the Detail Meadow Butterfly from ivory cardstock.
The sentiment, I used it in the Sentiment Strips Thinking of You.

PPP June Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends! Hope you stay healthy and well.
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh June 2020 Product Release Blog Hop. PPP June products are full of cuteness and loveliness :D If you arrived here from the Mayra’s Designs you are on the right track.

For my first card I’m featuring the new Monkey Friends stamp & die set, Stitched Leafy Borders die, Stitched Strips die and Leaves stencil. These are all so lovely, aren’t they?
I started by making leafy background with the Leaves stencil in the Layered Leaves & Flowers stencil set. I placed the stencil over 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel in place, brushed with green dye ink. I stamped adorable monkeys from the Monkey Friends set on white cardstock using black dye ink, coloured it with Copic markers, then die cut it with the coordinating die.
I die cut the Stitched Leafy Border from watercolour paper, and then applied green dye ink to it. I die cut Stitched Strips from green coloured cardstock as well. For the sentiments, I die cut the word “Hello” from white cardstock using the Hello Friend Script die, and white heat embossed another sentiment on black cardstock using the Simple Sentiments stamp set.
I mounted the green leafy background on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. I added Grass Green seed beads & clear droplets.

For my second card, I used the Jungle Friends stamp & die set along with other brand new products.To create the card, 1) I die cut Stitched Leafy Border from watercolour paper, adhered them on the top part of A2 sized white paper panel, then inked with Evergreen Bough & Crushed Olive Distress inks. 2) Stamped cute Jungle Friends on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured them with Copic markers, die cut them with the coordinating dies. 3) Die cut the Hi Shaker from white cardstock. 4) Die cut thin stitched strips from green coloured cardstock. 5) Die cut grassy borders from green cardstock using the Nature Essentials die set.
I adhered coloured critters behind the “Hi” sentiment – I added stitched leaves. I LOVE the Jungle Friends! So CUTE!!

My last card for the hop, I used the Layered Leaves & Flowers stencil set.
This set has 3 layered stencils – Leaves, flower petals and berries & stamens.
I cut A2 sized panel from watercolour paper first, and then placed the leaves stencil onto it in place. I brushed over the leaves stencil using a green dye ink to fill the panel, applied red dye ink over the petals stencil, applied lavender dye ink over the berries stencil.
I mounted the floral background panel onto white card base using double-sided tape first, and then decorated the card with seed beads – Azalea Pink for flowers, Grass Green for leaves and Sunshine for berries. For the sentiment on the center of the card, I used the Thinking of You Script die.

I die cut the Wonky Rectangle panel from watercolour paper first, and then stamped wildflowers onto the panel using black pigment ink. I then placed Clouds For Days stencil over the panel in place, made clouds using Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
I stamped another set of wildflowers in black, coloured all flowers with polychromos colored pencils, then fussy cut them out. I mounted the panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added flowers on the right place using foam tape.

Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from Isha Gupta’s blog you are on the right track!
Just like the title of the blog hop, watercolouring is certainly one of the great ways to heal my mind! It’s a remedy that gives joy to my tired mind. I’m sure you agree with me. :D Today I want to share my watercoloured “Thank You” card using the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers along with the Forever and Always set.
Rose petals: Crimson, Citrus Burst
Leaves: Lime, Sweet Leaf, Mountain Mist
Stem: Paper Bag
I stamped a bouquet of roses from the Forever and Always set using brown pigment ink. I coloured edges of each petal with Crimson, then added water as shown in the picture.
I then took the colour out using tissue. Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers are vivid and strong. The colours themselves are beautiful but if we take the colour out a bit, it gives off a vintage look.
I arranged all watercoloured roses onto 3.25 x 4.5″ rectangle panel – adhered roses temporarily on white panel using washi tapes, and then trimmed them. I didn’t use white paper panel.
I traced a 3.25 x 4.5″ rectangle on the centre of kraft card base with a pencil, and then added all trimmed images using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Flower Arrangement die set.

Here is a closer look:

SSS Sunny Days Ahead Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Sunny Days Ahead Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from talented Karin Äkesdotter’s blog you are on the right track! Sadly my parcel hasn’t arrived yet so I will share my Mother’s Day cards using previous released (and my favourite) products with you today. I hope it will arrive soon!
For my first card, I used the Botanical Heart stamp set & the Script Mom die.
I stamped large sized flower image from the Botanical Heart set onto watercolour paper panel with Faded Jeans Distress ink.
As many of you already know, Distress inks react with water so I just freely brushed part of stamped image with water brush as shown in the picture.
I painted my flowers with Faded Jean Distress ink as my main colour, then added Crushed Olive, Fossilized Amber and Mowed Lawn Distress inks.
For the sentiment, I used the Script Mom die & the Tiny Words Encouragement stamp set.
I love this “artsy style” so much!! :D

Here is another Mother’s Day card, I used the Floral Mom Frame die & the Love Friendship stamp set.
I die cut the Floral Mom Frame from watercolour paper first, and then lightly inked on the flowers & leaves with some Distress inks:
Flowers: Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves
Leaves: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn
I decorated the part of the word “MOM” with PPP Valentine Jewels.

Here is a closer look:

I will make & share my cards with brand new Sunny Days Ahead products soon!
