SSS Blossoms & Butterflies Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy, happy Saturday, crafty friends!
I’m so excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Blossoms & Butterflies Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

My cards today, I am featuring so lovely Bouquet of Roses Stencil – it is definitely one of my favourites among entire new release! With this beautiful stencil, I made messy watercoloured flower cards.
I positioned the Bouquet of Roses Stencil over the Wonky Stitched watercolour paper panel in place first, and then traced flowers & leaves with a pencil. I then coloured all flowers & leaves with STAEDTLER Aqua Pencils – these watercolour pencils are good-value-for-money! :D
Next, I brushed all pencil coloured images with a fine tip paint brush. To be honest, I really liked it BUT, I didn’t change my mind to make messy watercoloured flowers, haha!
Ta-da! I freely brushed over the images with a wet paint brush! I LOVE IT!!
For the sentiment, I used the Comfort and Prayers Stamp Set.

Here is one more messy watercoloured floral card with the Bouquet of Roses Stencil. I used the same technique but different colour combo.
I coloured flowers & leaves with watercolour pencils first, and then brushed pencil coloured images with a wet paint brush.

SSS Simple Floral Background

Hello crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my simple floral cards using Simon Says Stamp So Loved Stamp Set. It has solid & outlined flower images in one set!!
It’s so easy to make! I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from white card stock using the Basic Rectangles Dies, then stamped flowers & leaves from the So Loved Set on the white paper panel with several dye inks:
Flowers: Schoolhouse Red, Rose Apple, Sunshine, Wisteria, Deep Purple
Leaves: Willow, Spring Rain, Scuba, Evergreen
I stamped the sentiments in pigment black, and then mounted the floral panel on white card base using Glue Dots Permanent Tape Runner.

Here is another floral card with the So Loved Stamp Set.
I stamped a flower cluster on the top right side of the white paper panel with dye inks, adhered the white heat embossed sentiment banner using foam tape. I love this clean & simple floral card so much! :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Distress Oxide Ink Blending

Hello crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my Distress Oxide Ink blended backgrounds using some SSS floral dies and, of course, Distress Oxide Inks. My cards today, I was totally inspired by Kristina’s Distress Oxide Ink Blending Combinations series.
For today’s backgrounds, I used cold press watercolour paper pad & mini round blending tools. Cold press watercolour paper has a bit of rough textured surface but smoothly blended with Distress Oxide Inks.

To blend the first background, I used Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Inks.
To blend the second background, I used Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks.
To blend the last background, I used Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks.

For my first card, I die cut the Dahlia Stem from white card stock several times, and then glued them together using fine tip glue pen. I also die cut tiny butterflies from white card stock using the Flickering Butterflies Die. For the sentiment, I used the Tiny Words Stamp Set.

For my second card, I adhered white Sweet Tulip and tiny butterflies onto the Distress Oxide Ink background panel.

For my last card today, I used the Outline Clustered Leaves and the Flickering Butterflies Dies.
All three cards, I embellished with a few PPP clear droplets.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
