I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing hop! Hope that you take the time to check out all beautiful creations!

For my first card, I’m featuring the Lemon Lush background stamp along with other PFS products.
I stamped the Lemon Lush background on watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink. I then coloured the stamped panel with several liquid watercolors:
(Lemons) Sunshine, Clementine
(Flowers) Clementine, Candy apple, Lavender

The grey background, I used Pumice Stone Distress ink.
For a cute paper bow, I die cut each piece of the pattern from lemon yellow cardstock using the Flower Bouquet and a Bow die set. I then assembled it using double-sided tape.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “wonderful” from lemon yellow & glitter gold cardstock using the Phrase Builder: You die set first, and then adhered them diagonally onto the watercoloured panel.

I stamped the Enchanted Blooms background onto watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, and then watercoloured the stamped panel with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens.

SSS I Really Like You

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!
I have a couple of Valentine’s Day cards with the newly-released Simon Says Stamp love-themed products today.
For my first card, I used the Peony Bouquet stencil along with the CZ Design Like You Words stamp & die set.
To create the card, I die cut two rectangle panels from thick white cardstock – one is 4.25 x 5.5″ basic panel and another is 4 x 5.25″ wonky panel. I then made a heart window panel using the wonky rectangle panel. I placed heart window panel on the basic rectangle panel, traced along a heart with a pencil.
I laid the Peony Bouquet stencil over the panel in place.
I applied Tattered Rose Distress ink over the heart window panel, Picked Raspberry Distress ink over the basic panel using blender brush.
I stamped the You Are background on the heart window panel using Tea Dye Distress ink. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Like You Words die set.
We tend to believe that “I love you” is the most romantic phrase but sometimes “I like you” is more romantic than I love you. Don’t you think? :D

Here is another Valentine’s Day card with the Like You Words set. I placed the Tumbling Hearts stencil over the wonky rectangle watercolour panel, applied Tattered Rose Distress ink on it using blender brush.
I stamped heart wreath from the CZ Design I Still Do set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink three times, coloured them with Altenew red alcohol markers, and then die cut them with the matching die.
I mounted the pink hearts patterned panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements on the card using form tape. I added water drops using Tonic Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.

Simon is celebrating 18 years with this amazing sale. So don’t miss out! The code is EGHTN845.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

PPP Layered Hearts Background

Hello, crafty friends. I have two Valentine’s Day & two birthday cards with the newly-released Layered Hearts Stencils today.
For my first card, I used the Layered Hearts stencils, Large Floral Hearts set, and Happy Valentine’s Day Script die.
I started by making pink hearts background with stencils. I laid Layer A over the 4.25 x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel in place, applied Tattered Rose Distress ink, Worn Lipstick over the Layer B using blender brush. I then smoothly inked Tattered Rose Distress ink all over the panel using mini round ink blending tool. I stamped heart-shaped floral wreath from the Large Floral Hearts set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with Altenew Artist markers, and then die cut it with the matching die. I die cut the Happy Valentine’s Day Script from white cardstock as well. I mounted the hearts background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements using foam tape.

For my second Valentine’s Day card, I made a blue hearts background with Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans Distress inks.
I stamped floral heart (from the Large Floral Hearts set), swans (from the Pond Friends set) on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured them with alcohol markers, and then die cut them with the matching dies.
Here is a yellow hearts background with Scattered Straw & Fossilized Amber Distress inks. I inked Scattered Straw over the Layer A, Fossilized Amber (vivid yellow) over the Layer B.
I die cut the Balloon Shaker from thick white, bow from glitter gold cardstock. I embellished with a few Buttercream Jewels.

My last card today is a shaker birthday card. I made a green hearts background with Crushed Olive & Cracked Pistachio Distress inks first. I then die cut the Scallop Rectangle Frame from white cardstock, adhered the acetate behind the frame, added lots of seed beads, clear sequins, and silver mini star confetti.
For the sentiment, I used the Happy Birthday To You Script die.
The new Layered Hearts Stencils are SO adorable!!

Hey Bestie and Love You More Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, happy Saturday!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Hey Bestie and Love You More Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from super talented Yana Smakula’s blog you are on the right track!
Simon Says Stamp is undoubtedly a powerful stamp company that doesn’t require any introduction and these two (Hey Bestie & Love You More) released products are super awesome as always. I’m so happy and honoured to be a part of this amazing blog hop!

For my first card, I am featuring the new CZ Design Big Ampersand die along with the other Simon’s products. I started by making my own background panel with the You Are background stamp. I die cut a 4.25 x 5.5″ rectangle panel from thick white cardstock using the Basic Rectangles die set, stamped the text from the You Are background stamp with Tattered Rose Distress ink, and then blended some part of the panel with Tattered Rose & Worn Lipstick Distress inks.
For this floral Ampersand, I die cut the Big Ampersand from Tonic Welsh Gold Glitter cardstock, shadow from thick white cardstock, then glue them together. I stamped & polychromos coloured flowers (from More Spring Flowers & Even More Spring Flowers sets) and then die cut them with the matching dies. For the white leaves, I used the Detailed Leaf Cluster die. I adhered all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
For the tiny “LOVE YOU” sentiment, I used the Tiny Words stamp set – I white heat embossed it onto the Lipstick Red cardstock.

For my second card, I’m featuring the Wedding Rings dies along with other Simon’s products. I die cut the Winter Foliage Frame from watercolour paper, stamped the text from the You Are background stamp using Tea Dye Distress ink, then blended it with Tea Dye & Worn Lipstick Distress inks.
I die cut the bride’s wedding ring from white, glitter gold and glitter white cardstock, and then assembled them together using fine tip glue pen. I decorated the ring with simple outlined flower and red “WITH LOVE” sentiment banner.
This ring looks real, don’t you think? :D

For my last (but not least) blog hop card, I’m featuring the Peony Bouquet stencil and the CZ Design Like You stamp & word die set. These two products are my most favourites among the entire new products, especially the Peony Bouquet stencil is a MUST HAVE!!
I placed the Peony Bouquet stencil onto watercolour paper panel in place, and then inked Lipstick Red, Green Apple and Green Leaf dye inks using blender brushes. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the Like You Words set in pigment black, die cut the word “Like You” & shadow from white cardstock, glue them together using fine tip glue pen. I added some water drops using Tonic Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.

Picket Fence Studios Rose Bouquet

Hello crafty friends, I hope you are having a very blessed Sunday!
Today I have a couple of floral “Thank You” cards with the Picket Fence Studios Rose Bouquet stamp set – it’s a really beautiful set and I was so happy to make floral cards with it!! :D

Let’s start to watercolouring, yay! I stamped a bunch of roses onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with Altenew liquid watercolours.
Roses: Ruby Red, Crimson
Leaves: Lime, Sweet Leaf, Espresso and Paper Bag – mixing Lime and Espresso makes a pretty olive green. ;)
Here is a closer look:

For my second card, I made white roses on kraft card using the Rose Bouquet stamp set. I die cut 4.25″ x 5.5″ basic rectangle panel & 2.5″ x 6″ stitched fishtail banner from kraft cardstock, and then stamped rose bouquet onto both kraft base using Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink – I definitely used MISTI for stamping in the exact same place.
I coloured the stamped image on fishtail banner using Faber Castell polychromos colored pencils. I added opaque white ink splatters and white enamel dots. :)

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
