Floral Friday: SSS Chinese Lantern Stem

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have an encouragement card with SSS Chinese Lantern Stem die. The Chinese Lantern Stem is recently released from Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm. It’s very popular!!


Simon Says Stamp Chinese Lantern Stem Die

Chinese Lantern flower means safety, comfort and protection so I decided to make an encouragement card with it. :D

At first I die cut the Chinese Lantern Stem from watercolour paper. I then coloured all die cuts with Distress inks:
Flowers: Dried Marigold & Spiced Marmalade
Leaves and stems: Bundled Sage & Peeled Paint.
Next, I dry embossed an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using the Crystal Distortion embossing folder, applied Dried Marigold Distress ink to the panel, and then made a square window on the top left part of the panel.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the CZ Design Clean Line Stacks set onto watercolour paper in white, inked onto it with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. I then adhered the sentiment panel to the back of the background panel.

I mounted the background panel and the Chinese Lantern Stems on the card as shown in the picture, and then decorated the card with tiny butterflies & 4mm clear droplets. :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Floral Friday: PPP Spring Flowers

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a cute “Hugs” card with Pretty Pink Posh Spring Flowers layered stencils.


The main flower product of Floral Friday in the third week of January is Pretty Pink Posh Spring Flowers Layered Stencils. It is so adorable!



First, I made a cute floral pattern onto an A2 sized paper panel. I used Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Victorian Velvet, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks to flowers, then Bundled Sage & Crushed Olive Distress inks to leaves. When applying ink to a small area, it’s better to use detailed blending brushes – I recommend the Altenew Detailed Blending Brushes!

To make the floral pattern more fun, I used several scallop border dies. I put the dies on the pattern paper as shown in the picture, die cut them and assembled them together on A2 sized card base using double-sided tape.


I die cut the large sized butterfly from white cardstock using the Bold Butterflies dies, and then softly inked to the centre of the butterfly with Fossilized Amber Distress ink. For the sentiment, I die cut the “Hugs” from white cardstock, inked it with Festive Berries Distress ink. I added “Hugs” butterfly to the centre of the card using foam tape, and then decorated around the butterfly with 4mm Clear Droplets.

I think flowers and butterflies are a match made in heaven!


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

SSS Detail Cloud Plate

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
Today I have another sunflower card with some SSS old & new products. We love sunflowers, especially in autumn, right?!!

I started by making background panel with the new Detail Cloud Plate die.


I applied the Detail Cloud Plate onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel first, and then lightly coloured it with Tumbled Glass Distress reinker. I added ink splatters as well. I then made a sunflower using the Sunflower Petals & Detailed Rose die sets – I die cut all pieces from watercolour paper, then roughly coloured them with some Distress reinkers.


To give my card a bit of antique look, I simply played with Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. :D

SSS Rainbow Butterflies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend.
Today I have 3 rainbow coloured butterfly cards with some Simon Says Stamp goodies.





To-da! This Butterfly Drift die is my main supply – it’s definitely my most favourite butterfly die ever!!


For my first card, I made a watercoloured rainbow butterflies using the Butterfly Drift and the Shimmer Wreath dies. I die cut rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the A2 sized Basic Rectangle die first. I then die cut the centre of the panel using the Shimmer Wreath die. I watercoloured to a floral circle part of the panel as shown in the picture using Distress reinkers in rainbow order. Next, I die cut the Butterfly Drift from watercolour paper, and then applied Distress inks to some butterflies using blending brushes. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.

I decorated the card with cream coloured pearls.


For my second card, I made a tone-on-tone floral background with the Cosmos Bloom die first. I die cut several Cosmos Bloom from white cardstock, then adhered them on white card base as shown in the picture.

I die cut the Butterfly Drift from thick white cardstock, then coloured each butterfly die cut with Copic markers:
Red: R24 / Pink: R22 / Orange: YR14 / Yellow: Y15
Green: YG06 / Blue: BG13 / Purple: R85 & V15.
I added the outlined Butterfly Drift die cut on the centre of the card first, then added Copic coloured butterflies in place using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Thinking of You Heart die.



For my last card today, I made a watercoloured leafy background with the Leafy Christmas Tree die set. With Crushed Olive & Mowed Lawn Distress inks, I coloured to the panel & leafy tree die cuts. I die cut the Butterfly Drift from white cardstock, inked them, then added on the card.

I really hope my rainbow butterfly cards make you happy!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a safe and restful weekend!

Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all.

SSS Butterfly Kisses

Hello crafty friends!
Today’s cards feature the Butterfly Kisses stamp set along with other SSS goodies. Butterflies and flowers are the best combination for a beautiful card, right?!!

For my first card, I started by making butterflies background with warm-toned dye inks – Rosie Cheeks, Rose Apple, Lavender and Duckling. I then trimmed the edge of the stamped panel down using the Wonky Rectangle die.

For the centre of the card, I added pinkish hydrangea using Hydrangea Petals die – sadly, it’s retired so if you don’t have, you can use any other flower dies.

I die cut several petals from watercolour paper, blended on each petal with Worn Lipstick Distress ink, then gently brushed them with water as shown in the picture. For the pale yellow leaves, I used the detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set. I added pink jewels on the centre of each petals after assembling flower.

Here is one more card with the Butterfly Kisses stamp set. I stamped solid butterfly images on white panel with cool-toned dye inks – Surf Blue, Audrey Blue, Winter Sky, Green Apple and Duckling. For the centre of the card, I die cut the Cosmos Bloom from watercolour paper, applied Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink, and then brushed it using water brush.

For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.


Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a healthy and happy week!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
