SSS Let’s Connect Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello, hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Let’s Connect Release Blog Hop. Oh, I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track!

Are. You. Ready to enter the rainbow-coloured world? My cards will be full of rainbow colours today – just wanna say it “rainbowness.” Haha! :D
For my first card, I used the Rainbow Card die set along with the Unicorn Love stamp set. I think the Rainbow Card die set will be a BIG HIT!! I die cut rainbow & clouds from watercolour paper using the Rainbow Card die set, then applied SSS dye inks to each ray of the rainbow in order of rainbow colours:
(from the top red colour) Lipstick Red, Duckling, Green Apple, Audrey Blue and Deep Purple. I stamped a cute unicorn from the Unicorn Love set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured it with Copic markers.
I die cut the Detail Petal Plate from Neenah Smooth Desert Storm cardstock, then mounted it on the same Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape. I then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
I added many of bling-bling sequins & droplets on the rainbow rays!
It is another happy rainbow card on the rainbow shaped card base. I adhered the two clouds using foam tape first. I adhered the sun & other clouds to the back of the rainbow rays using double-sided tape, then adhered the rainbow rays in place.
Oh, I love it. It makes me so happy! I really wanna send you happy hugs!!

For my third cards, I used the Cosmos Bloom die along with Detail Petal Plate die.
I die cut several cosmos from watercolour paper using the Cosmos Bloom die first, then applied rainbow coloured Distress inks to them using Blender Brushes:
(Red) Festive Berries & Fired Brick
(Yellow) Fossilized Amber & Tea Dye
(Green) Crushed Olive & Evergreen Bough
(Blue) Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans
(Purple) Seedless Preserves & Fired Brick
I made a bouquet using rainbow coloured Cosmos Bloom & Eucalyptus Leaves die cuts, and then adhered on the centre of the Detail Petal Plate base using foam tape. I added stamens on the centre of each flower using PPP seed beads.
Here is another rainbow floral card with the Cosmos Bloom die. I adhered flower die cuts on watercolour paper panel, then blended the floral panel with Distress inks. I then washed the colours using a wet paint brush, added opaque white & metallic silver ink splatters all around the panel. I die cut the Detail Meadow Butterfly from ivory cardstock.
The sentiment, I used it in the Sentiment Strips Thinking of You.

SSS Large Floral Dies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are always happy and healthy.
Today I have a couple of floral cards with some Simon Says Stamp large sized flower dies.
For my first card, I used the Hibiscus Bloom die along with the In The Round stencil. To create the card, I die cut the Hibiscus Bloom from watercolour paper first, and then applied Rosie Cheeks dye ink on the centre of the flower using blender brush. I added a bit of glitter gold using Tonic Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops.
For the background, I applied white embossing paste through the In The Round stencil at the centre of the Wonky Rectangle paper panel. I added opaque white ink splatters here and there. I mounted the background panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added pink Hibiscus Bloom using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy.
I love adding PPP 4mm clear droplets to the flower petals. Always!!

For my second card, I made the same way but used different flower dies – Etched Peony Blossom & Etched Flower Buds dies. For the background, I stamped Thank You Text Background on kraft paper panel using Rusty Hinge Distress ink, then tore the top and bottom of the paper with my hands. I love this vintage look. :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a healthy day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Spring Flowers

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend.
Simon Says Stamp released new products called “Send Happiness” last Thursday – my parcel hasn’t arrived yet, but I made a watercoloured floral card with previous released products instead.
For my card today, I used the Spring Flowers stamp set – it’s definitely one of my very favourites!! :D I randomly stamped flowers & leaves from the Spring Flowers set onto 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, then coloured the stamped images with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. I love watercolouring with bright and vibrant Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. I really like bright and vivid colours, but I chose to wash the colours for a vintage look today.
For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy. As you can see my previous cards, I’d like to use white heat embossed sentiment on black cardstock and the SSS Sentiment Strips Reverse series save me a lot of time! I highly recommend it to people who like to do it like me.For those of you who are tired of something, I send my love and prayers!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

PPP June Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends! Hope you stay healthy and well.
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh June 2020 Product Release Blog Hop. PPP June products are full of cuteness and loveliness :D If you arrived here from the Mayra’s Designs you are on the right track.

For my first card I’m featuring the new Monkey Friends stamp & die set, Stitched Leafy Borders die, Stitched Strips die and Leaves stencil. These are all so lovely, aren’t they?
I started by making leafy background with the Leaves stencil in the Layered Leaves & Flowers stencil set. I placed the stencil over 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel in place, brushed with green dye ink. I stamped adorable monkeys from the Monkey Friends set on white cardstock using black dye ink, coloured it with Copic markers, then die cut it with the coordinating die.
I die cut the Stitched Leafy Border from watercolour paper, and then applied green dye ink to it. I die cut Stitched Strips from green coloured cardstock as well. For the sentiments, I die cut the word “Hello” from white cardstock using the Hello Friend Script die, and white heat embossed another sentiment on black cardstock using the Simple Sentiments stamp set.
I mounted the green leafy background on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. I added Grass Green seed beads & clear droplets.

For my second card, I used the Jungle Friends stamp & die set along with other brand new products.To create the card, 1) I die cut Stitched Leafy Border from watercolour paper, adhered them on the top part of A2 sized white paper panel, then inked with Evergreen Bough & Crushed Olive Distress inks. 2) Stamped cute Jungle Friends on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured them with Copic markers, die cut them with the coordinating dies. 3) Die cut the Hi Shaker from white cardstock. 4) Die cut thin stitched strips from green coloured cardstock. 5) Die cut grassy borders from green cardstock using the Nature Essentials die set.
I adhered coloured critters behind the “Hi” sentiment – I added stitched leaves. I LOVE the Jungle Friends! So CUTE!!

My last card for the hop, I used the Layered Leaves & Flowers stencil set.
This set has 3 layered stencils – Leaves, flower petals and berries & stamens.
I cut A2 sized panel from watercolour paper first, and then placed the leaves stencil onto it in place. I brushed over the leaves stencil using a green dye ink to fill the panel, applied red dye ink over the petals stencil, applied lavender dye ink over the berries stencil.
I mounted the floral background panel onto white card base using double-sided tape first, and then decorated the card with seed beads – Azalea Pink for flowers, Grass Green for leaves and Sunshine for berries. For the sentiment on the center of the card, I used the Thinking of You Script die.

PFS Floral Encouragement Cards

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a great weekend!
Today I have a couple of floral encouragement cards with some Pinkfresh Studio products.
These two large sized sentiment sets, the Whole Lot of Awesome & Hugs and Good Vibes, released by Pinkfresh Studio in April are VERY SPECIAL to me! Because one of my close friends, Leanne designed these sets for Pinkfresh Studio!! Leanne is so talented graphic designer and I’m really happy that she makes something beautiful for Pinkfresh studio!! Oh, and sweet Kinnari kindly sent me these two sets, woohoo!

For my first card, I used the Whole Lot of Awesome stamp set along with the Wild Flower Sketches set. I heat embossed the sentiment on the centre of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ white paper panel in gold.
Next, I stamped flowers and leaves from the Wild Flower Sketches set with several SSS dye inks, die cut all stamped images with matching dies. I then added stamped flowers & leaves to all edges of the sentiment panel as shown in the picture using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Hugs and Good Vibes stamp set along with the Painted Florals washi tape. I stamped the sentiment on the centre of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, and then loosely coloured over the sentiment area with Sunshine & Espresso watercolors – I mixed yellow and brown together and coloured onto the panel. For the flowers, I die cut them from the Painted Florals washi tape, then added them using foam tape.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
