SSS Make Merry Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Make Merry Release Blog Hop. I’m especially excited to be a part of this amazing blog hop because it’s Christmas hop, woohoo!! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I am featuring the new Center Cut Holiday Floral background stamp & the Deco Hat Gnome die. As many of you know watercolouring is my most favourite way to play with in my craft room! With these awesome goodies, I made a no-line watercoloured card.

I stamped the holiday flowers on A2 sized watercolour paper panel using Antique Linen Distress ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens:
(Flowers & Berries) Red Apple, Wild Phlox
(Leaves) Sliced Kiwi, Aqua Splash, Indigo Batik
(Stems) Yellow Ochre, Caramel Pecan
I coloured with Aqua Flow Pen first, then added water using water brush.

Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I cut the centre of the panel using Stitched Circle die.

For the Deco Hat Gnome, I die cut Deco Hat from several colour cardstock – Lipstick Red, Sunshine, Mint and Green Apple. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joyful dies.

Isn’t this gnome so cute?!! :D


For my second card, I used the Falling Leaves layering stencils & the Warm Hugs dies. with the first leaves stencil, I inked with Green Apple dye ink. The second leaves stencil, I inked with Green Leaf dye ink. The berries stencil, I inked with Lipstick Red dye ink. Lastly I laid acorn stencil over the panel, then inked with Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Warm Hugs dies.

It is so easy to make pretty card with layering stencils! :D

For my last project for the hop, I made a very simple Christmas ornament ball with Warm Hugs dies. I made thick white “Warm Hugs” word die cut, then glued firmly to the bottom of the clear plastic ball using multi medium matte. I filled a clear ball with lots of clear sparkling sequins & glitters.

InLoveArts Christmas Tree

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Today I have a couple of (kind of) traditional Christmas tree cards with the InLoveArts Christmas Tree die along with SSS products.
I simply die cut all elements, Stitched Whirl Panel, Christmas Tree, Happy Christmas Sentiment from kraft & white cardstock. I then mounted the Stitched Whirl Panel on top-folded card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all die cuts onto the card using foam tape.
I added opaque white ink splatters all over the panel, some crystals over the tree.
I love kraft & white Christmas card sooooooo much!! :D
This intricate Christmas Tree die is so pretty, isn’t it?

Here is another simple Christmas card with the InLoveArts Christmas Tree die. I die cut the tree from SSS Green Apple cardstock, lightly applied some green coloured Distress inks using blender brush.
For the sentiment, I used the SSS CZ Design Merry die and the SSS Tiny Words Christmas stamp set.

InLoveArts generously provides 15% OFF this Christmas Tree Die. Use code S5773.

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

SSS Merry Gnomas

Hello crafty friends, happy Saturday!
Today I have a couple of fun Christmas cards with the SSS Gnome die. It’s a HUGE HIT among us – paper crafters!!
For my first card, I used the Christmas Kaleidoscope background stamp along with the Gnome die. I die cut the 4 x 5.25″ Wonky Rectangle panel from kraft cardstock first, and then heat embossed the Christmas Kaleidoscope Background in white onto the kraft panel. For colouring the stamped background, I just used white & red polychromos colored pencils – I love white, red and kraft colour combo!! I cut the centre of the background panel using the Stitched Circles die set.
I die cut the Gnome from watercolour paper, and then applied some Distress inks using blender brushes:
Gnome hat: Festive Berries & Fired Brick / Beard: Pumice Stone.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry” from Lipstick Red cardstock, shadow from white cardstock, then glued them together using fine tip glue pen.
I added white pom pom, white enamel dots, clear snowflake sequins – it’s kind of messy.. but looks more Christmasy, right?!!

For my second card, I used the Leaves and Berries background stamp along with the Gnome die. I heat embossed the background image in white onto kraft paper panel, and then coloured it with red & green polychromos colored pencils.
I cut the bottom right corner of the background panel using the Stitched Circles die, and then put the gnome in it!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

PPP Stencil Theme Week: Leaves & Berries

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a couple of Christmas cards with the Pretty Pink Posh Leaves & Berries Stencil along with other PPP Christmas products.

I started by creating watercoloured Christmas patterns with the Leaves & Berries stencil. I placed the stencil in place onto the 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel, applied red & green Distress inks over the stencil using blender brush – I used Festive Berries for red, Mowed Lawn & Evergreen Bough for green. I then added clean water onto berries & leaves using water brush for watercolour painting effect. Once the panel was dry, I inked all edges of the panel with Antique Linen Distress ink. I also added clear droplets to all berries using Tonic Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.
I die cut the Stitched Poinsettias from watercolour paper, applied Distress inks, and then assembled them using foam tape. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the Joy set on white cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black, trimmed it down as a fishtail banner.
I’m so in love with the new Stitched Poinsettias die set!!
To top and bottom part of the card, I covered the card over with the Scallop Border Panels to be more feminine.

Here is another card with the Leaves & Berries stencil – white on kraft is definitely my most favourite Christmas card. :D I placed the stencil onto kraft card base in place, applied white embossing paste onto the card.
I die cut “Merry” sentiment tree from watercolour paper using the Tree Shaker die, inked it with Walnut Stain Distress ink. I die cut berry & leaves from watercolour paper using the Festive Holly dies, applied red & green Distress inks as well. I adhered sentiment tree & Christmas berry on the centre of the card using foam tape. I embellished with a few 3mm clear sequins.
STENCIL SECTION on the PPP store is 15% OFF during this theme week!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
