SSS Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop – Day 2

Happy New Year, crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova‚Äôs blog you are on the right track!

Today, I will share 4 cards using Love You (December-released) products only because Love You, Too products arrived late but don’t worry! I will post new projects using Love You, Too products from next week. So, shall we get started? :D

For my first card, I used the You Have My Heart & the With All My Heart along with other SSS goodies. I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangles die set first. I stamped flowers using Antique Linen Distress ink, watercoloured the stamped images using Distress inks:
Red flowers: Festive Berries, Candied Apple and Fired Brick
Leaves: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive
Flower buds: Wild Honey / Branches: Vintage Photo

I die cut the sentiment from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper using the With All My Heart die. I also die cut bird couple & wedding ring.

Once the watercoloured floral panel was dry, I added sentiment & lovely bird couple as shown in the picture using foam tape. I love this adorable bird couple. :D


For my second card, I used the Splendid Leaves embossing folder & the Floral Card Front die. I applied Distress inks to the inside of an embossing folder first, and then spritzed the inked area with water. After that, I ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine – Ohhhh, I love a watercolour look!!

I die cut the Floral Card Front from thick white cardstock and added onto the background panel using foam tape.



For my second card, I used the Mini Interactive Envelope, the Detail Swirls Plate and the Mini Hearts Party dies. I simply prepared 6 red-coloured mini envelopes, a mini love message card, and a wedding ring, and then made a simply Valentine’s Day card. :)

The new Mini Hearts Party die is so handy. We can make many hearts with a single cut, yay!

For this lovely “XOXO” message, I used the Love Greetings MIX stamp set.


My last card for the hop, I used the Layering Hearts stencil, the With All My Heart and the Love Birds die. I laid the heart stencil on an A2 sized white paper panel in place, applied (from the top) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress inks using blending brush.

I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock using the With All My Heart die, the Love Birds from red cardstock, and then adhered them over the panel using foam tape. I decorated the card with red heart die cuts & clear jewels.

Hello, hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh 7th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop. Pretty Pink Posh turned 7! Come join this 3 days celebration for fun, inspiration and surprises. Let’s start!!

For my first card, actually this is my first card in 2021, I’m featuring brand new Peonies stencil along with the With Love shaker die.

I laid the Peonies stencil on A2 sized watercolour paper panel in place first, and then applied Distress inks onto the paper panel – Tattered Rose & Fired Brick for flowers, Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive for leaves. I added red ink splatters all over the floral panel. I die cut heart shaped “with love” sentiment from white cardstock using the With Love shaker die, then decorated the edge with the new Sweetheart Rhinestones.



For my second card, I made a fun birthday shaker card with the new Birthday Cake dies.

I die cut the Birthday Cake panel from thick white cardstock first, and then die cut it from pale grey cardstock again. I inked balloons & cakes with Distress inks, then inlaid all elements in place.

For the middle part of the cake, I adhered acetate sheet to the back of them, filled with Sweetheart Rhinestones, White Hearts Clay Confetti and Sparkling Clear Sequins.


For my last card for the hop, I made a slimline birthday card with the new Slimline Peekaboo Windows die set – it is my first slimline card!! :D

I die cut stitched 3.25″ x 8.25″ base panel from white cardstock using the Slimline Peekaboo Windows die set first, and then made 3 square windows to the centre of the panel. I made colourful bokeh background using the new Layered Bokeh stencils. On the centre of the card, I added Copic coloured monkeys and leaves for fun!

Here is a closer look:

SSS DieCember 2020 Release

Hello crafty friends!
Today is the first day of December, oh, I can’t believe it’s already the last month of 2020, which means we can meet the Simon Says Stamp DieCember! YAY!!

For my cards today, I’m featuring the Detailed Rose die setI loooooove it.

For my first card, I collected the patterned papers that were left here and there. I don’t know why but as soon as I saw this rose die, I thought of patchwork. I die cut the Detailed Rose from thick white cardstock & several patterned papers first. I then assembled all pieces using fine tip glue pen. I also die cut the detailed leaves from green cardstocks.

For the background, I die cut stripes from patterned papers using the Strips 1 & the Strips 2 die sets, then adhered them as shown in the picture on white card base using double-sided tape.

Doesn’t this tiny butterfly make the rose look more beautiful?!!


For my second “Thanks” card, I just used detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set. I applied several Distress inks behind the Thanks sentiment panel in rainbow order – I used Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon and Seedless Preserves.

I die cut detailed leaves (in the Detailed Rose set) & solid leaves (in the Christmas Foliage set) from thick white cardstock, then decorated the Thanks sentiment panel with them.

I will share more of my DieCember cards on Thursday. Please look forward to the 2 days DieCember 2020 blog hop starting tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
