Paper Rose Rainbow Butterflies Card

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have rainbow butterflies card with the Paper Rose Studio Elena Butterfly and Amaya Butterfly dies. These two butterfly die sets are really beautiful!!

I started by die cutting butterflies from watercolour paper. I then adhered butterfly die cuts onto an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using SSS Micro Dot Sheets Adhesive. Next, I ink blended the butterflies panel with some Distress inks in rainbow order – I used (from the top-left corner) Fired Brick, Tattered Rose, Fossilized Amber, Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves. I added opaque white ink splatters all around the panel. I die cut 3 Elena Butterflies from vellum paper, added them as shown in the picture. For a more shiny effect, I decorated the centre of butterflies with Clear Crystal Mix.

For the sentiment, I used “Prayers & Hugs” in the Black & White A5 Sentiment Sheets.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great day.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

(Right) Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise Dies



Ta-da! Aren’t they so beautiful to put small flowers, leaves, butterflies on top of the large sized, almost A2 sized, butterfly base? Oh, I love them so much!!

My first butterfly card is a proposal card. I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper using the Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise dies, coloured them with Altenew Watercolor 36 pan set. I also die cut wedding ring from SSS Matte Gold Mirror cardstock using the SSS Wedding Rings dies.

I adhered all watercoloured flowers & leaves, wedding ring on the centre of the white butterfly base using foam tape. I decorated the card with small clear droplets.



For the second butterfly card, I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper using the Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise dies, randomly glued all die cuts on white butterfly card base using fine tip glue pen, and then ink blended it with some Distress inks in rainbow order. I added smaller vellum butterfly die cut, pearls and Hero Arts small butterfly on the card.


Here is the last but not least, I decorated the right part of the butterfly with colourful flowers & butterfly. I die cut Hero Arts small flowers & leaves from various colour cardstock, butterfly from white cardstock first. I then lightly added colour each die cut with Copic markers, and then arranged all flowers & leaves onto the right side of the white butterfly card base using foam tape.


Isn’t it so lovely?!! I am so very pleased with the result, haha! :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

SSS Yay You Release Blog Hop – Day 1

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Yay You Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this awesome blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Cheiron Brandon’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I’m featuring brand new Arched Greens Background stamp & Happily Ever After dies.

I started by making floral background with the Arched Greens Background stamp. I heat embossed floral images onto watercolour paper using white embossing powder, ink blended the stamped paper with Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw Distress inks, and then trimmed it down with A2 sized Basic Rectangle Panel die.

I die cut the word “Happily Ever After” from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper, and then glued them together. I mounted the floral panel on white card base using Dot Runner Adhesive, added the sentiment die cut on the centre of the card using foam tape, and then decorated the sentiment with tiny butterflies and wedding ring.

For my second card for the hop, I used the new Arches stencil along with other SSS products.

I made 4 different coloured Arches pattern stripes – applied Distress inks over the stencil, then cut each stripe using the largest sized stripes die in the Strips 2 die set. I also die cut thin stripes from Matte Silver Mirror cardstock using the Strips 1 die set. I adhered all stripes on the Woodgrain White card base as shown in the picture.

For the centre of the card, I added Etched Delicate Frond & black sentiment banner using foam tape.

Paper Rose Little Foliage 2

Hello crafty friends!
Today is the 1st of May! When I think of May, I always think of fresh green so, today I am sharing with you a fresh leafy wreath card with Little Foliage 2 dies.



I started by die cutting many leaves from white cardstock using the Little Foliage 2 dies.

I then applied green & blue coloured Distress inks using blending brushes – I used Bundled Sage, Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass Distress inks.

I dry embossed an A2 sized white paper panel using the Hand Stitching 2 Embossing Folder, lightly drew a circle on the centre of the panel with a pencil, and then adhered inked foliage die cuts along with the circle line using foam tape. I added the sentiment banner (from the All Occasions Sentiments A5 sheets) & metallic gold butterfly (from the Amaya Butterfly dies) on the bottom right corner of the leafy wreath using foam tape.


Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great day.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Floral Friday: SSS Olive Leaves

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Today I have a couple of “Thinking of You” cards with the Simon Says Stamp Olive Leaves die set.


Simon Says Stamp Olive Leaves Die Set

Finally, I made alcohol ink background! I know, alcohol ink background became trendy a few years ago but at the time, honestly, I didn’t want to add alcohol inks in my stash because I had so many different mediums like watercolours, Distress inks, etc.. HOWEVER, I ended up falling in love with the charm of alcohol ink background. The unexpected result is particularly attractive!! :D

I die cut the Stylized Butterfly from thick white cardstock, small olive leaf from metallic gold cardstock, and then mounted them onto the centre of the card front using foam tape.

I decorated the gold olive leaf with gold crystals.


Here is another card with the Olive Leaves die set. I made another alcohol ink background with blue, yellow and metallic gold alcohol inks. I then die cut the Thinking of You Heart & Olive Leaves from white cardstock. I applied green Distress inks to a part of Olive Leaves die cuts.


I love the adorable Olive Leaves so much!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
