Concord & 9th August Liquid watercolours

Hello crafty friends!
Concord & 9th has been released pigment based liquid watercolours this month and all 22 colours are truly, truly fantastic!

I made colour charts to make it easier for you to see as below:

They are so nice warm colours!

These green colours make me want to keep making autumn cards. So gorgeous!!

Fantastic, aren’t they?!!

These 22 liquid watercolours are really intense and concentrated by themselves but it’s easy to make various shades of the same colour by adding or reducing the amount of water I used on my brush. And they blend extremely well.

For my card with liquid watercolors, I used the Festive Friends set.


For my snowy winter night background, I used the Peacock & the Midnight liquid watercolour. I just painted Midnight onto the bottom of watercolour panel without water, then painted Peacock mixed with a little water, and then added more water to Peacock and Midnight on top of the panel as shown in the picture. And the woman holding the Christmas tree, I stamped it from the Festive Friends set using pigment black ink, and then coloured it with liquid watercolours.

Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I added opaque white ink all around the panel. For the sentiment, I used them in the Festive Friends die set.


For my second watercolour card, I used the Fine Line Florals set.

I stamped a large sized flower image from the Fine Line Florals set onto watercolour paper using Wheat dye ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with several liquid watercolours.




I adore these liquid watercolors so much!!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS DieCember┬« Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp DieCember 2020 Release Blog Hop. I’m super-duper excited to be a part of this fabulous blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I used the Turtle Doves die set as my main supply. Oh, isn’t this couple so lovely?!! I die cut the turtle doves from watercolour paper first, and then ink blended them with several Distress inks. I also die cut mistletoe from green apple cardstock, ribbon & tiny hearts from lipstick red cardstock. I used glitter gold cardstock for beaks because it’s Christmas, lol!

For the background, I heat embossed the Holiday Words background onto watercolour paper panel in white first, and then made circle on the centre of the panel with the Circle Masks stencils & Distress inks: (from the largest circle) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple. I tore up the top & bottom parts of the background panel, mounted it on Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base, then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. I also decorated the card with clear snowflakes in the Snowy Pines sequins.



For my second card, I used the Paper Hugs & the Detail Bohemian Plate dies. I started by making a beautiful patterned panel using the Detail Bohemian Plate die. I then made circle patterns (like the first card) with the Circle Masks stencils and blue coloured Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Paper Hugs die – it is so adorable sentiment die!!

I roughly watercoloured the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress ink, added opaque white ink splatters all over the panel. I mounted the blue watercoloured panel on Neenah Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape first, and then added a watercoloured Christmas Gem on the centre of the card front using foam tape.

SSS Holly Jolly Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Holly Jolly Release Blog Hop. Woohoo!! If you arrived here from super talented Lisa Addesa’s blog you are on the right track!

For my card today, I’m featuring the Scattered Stars stencil along with the CZ Design Joy Script die. First, I die cut snowflakes from thick white cardstock using the Lea Snowflake & Daphne Snowflake dies. I carefully applied glossy accent onto both snowflake die cuts, and then sprinkled Unicorn Confetti Glitters onto them. Woo hoo, I love, love, love these sparkling snowflakes! I left them aside to dry.

Ohhh.. I love star shapes! First, I applied several dark coloured Distress inks onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel using the new blender brushes – I used Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot Distress inks. I laid the Scattered Stars stencil over the panel, then applied Gina K Designs Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel. Super shiny, isn’t it?!!

I want to show you a little closer! :D


For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joy Script dies – it is definitely one of my favourites among entire new products.



It is that I posted yesterday, the release day, but just share it again for those who haven’t seen it. I used the Holiday Words Background stamp. Please click HERE if you want to know more details. :)
