SSS Merry & Joy

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I want to share my leafy Christmas card trio with some SSS Christmas products. I really like making winter holiday cards. You like it too, right?!! :D



For my first card, I used the Leafy Branch & CZ Design Merry dies along with the Crystal Distortion Embossing Folder. I die cut the Leafy Branch from watercolour paper – I used both positive & negative pieces. I coloured Leafy Branch with some green coloured Distress reinkers. I used Evergreen Bough, Mowed Lawn, Bundled Sage and Gathered Twigs. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry” from white cardstock, shadow from Neenah Smooth Desert Storm cardstock, glued them together using fine tip glue pen.

I dry embossed on A2 sized white paper panel using the Crystal Distortion embossing folder, mounted it on white card base using dot runner adhesive, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.


For my second leafy Christmas card, I made a watercolour card with the Be Kind stamp set.

I stamped leaves onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel using Bundled Sage Distress ink first, and then coloured all stamped images with Evergreen Bough & Mowed Lawn Distress inks. I just added red berries & tiny dots between leaves using Festive Berries Distress ink.

For the sentiment, I used the word “Merry” in the Holiday Sparkle Greetings stamp set.


For my last leafy wreath card, I used the Christmas Foliage die set. I die cut 6 leaves from watercolour paper, 5 sprigs from white cardstock first. I watercoloured 6 leaves with Evergreen Bough & Mowed Lawn Distress reinkers. Once watercoloured leaves were dry, I made a wreath with 6 leaves & 5 sprigs.

For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Joy Script dies.


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

Winter Holiday Card – Joy

Hello crafty friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
October is so soon, this means it’s the month we start making Christmas cards (many of us are already making though). I will also make and share as many Christmas cards as time permits.

Today I have a couple of winter holiday cards with non Christmas products, lol!


For my first card, I used the Concord & 9th Harvest Wreath set – it’s of course autumn-themed product but with red, green and gold on white, we can make Christmas cards as much as we want, right?!!

I started by stamping Christmas wreath from the C9 Harvest Wreath Turnabout set on white cardstock using C9 Cranberry, Parsley and Clover dye inks. I then cut the outer part of the wreath. I die cut some leaves & berries from white cardstock using the C9 Harvest Wreath die set as well. I mounted the leafy Christmas wreath on the centre of the card using foam tape first, and then added white leafy wreath as shown in the picture. I also added metallic gold ink splatters using Altenew Gold Pearl Metallic Watercolor.

I die cut the word “Joy” from metallic gold cardstock using the SSS CZ Design Joy Script die, then added it on the card.



Here is another “Joy” Christmas card with the Altenew Mini Flower Cluster Layering die set. With this non Christmas product, I used only red & green cardstock.

At first, I die cut flower petals from red & white cardstock. I used SSS Mega Thick White for the base layer, SSS Schoolhouse Red for the second layer and SSS Lipstick Red for the top layer. I then used green cardstock to die cut several leaves. I used C9 Evergreen & C9 Clover for the base layer, SSS Green Apple for the top layer. After die cutting, I adhered the pieces all together using ZIG fine tip glue pen.

I mounted floral wreath on the centre of the A2 sized white card base using foam tape, added metallic gold “Joy” sentiment, jingle bells and opaque white ink splatters.

How about making Christmas cards with your non Christmas products today? I’m sure it’ll be fun! :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

PPP Happy Holidays

Hello crafty friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Today I have a couple of Winter holiday cards with some PPP Christmas products. I’m always happy making Christmas cards!


For my first card, I used the Stitched Poinsettias as my main supply.

For my stitched strips background, I was inspired by amazing Dana Kirby’s card. Oh, it’s a really great idea!! Please visit her blog (click HERE). She has so many beautiful cards. :D


I die cut three different sized Stitched Strips from white cardstock first, and then vertically mounted onto white card base using double-sided tape.

I die cut the poinsettias & leaves from watercolour paper using the Stitched Poinsettias dies first, then applied some Distress inks to them:
Poinsettias: Festive Berries & Fired Brick
Green leaves: Evergreen Bough, Crushed Olive, Bundled Sage
After inking, I layered all poinsettias as shown in the picture using foam tape, then added water drops.

I added one large poinsettia on the centre of the card, then added the sentiment “Happy Holidays” & metallic gold drops.


For my second card, I used the Ornament Shaker die. At first, I made snowy winter night background onto an A2 sized watercolour paper panel. I ink blended with Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot Distress inks, then added Sparkle Sheer Shimmer & opaque white ink splatters all around the panel.




Once the panel was completely dry, I added the “Jolly” circle ornament & white scallop frame using foam tape.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Wood Background

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
Today I have custom wood background cards with the Woodgrain Block die.
(Oops! Some crafty people asked me where they can buy this die.. I wasn’t aware that this die is retired when I made it actually. So, I searched alternatives and found Memory Box Wood Grain Planks die set).



I die cut the Woodgrain Block from watercolour paper several times, then applied Gathered Twigs & Tea Dye Distress inks. It’s ready to make my own wood background!

I mounted inked woodgrain blocks on Neenah Desert Storm card base using Dot Runner Adhesive as shown in the picture. I then added sentiment & tiny flowers using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the With All My Heart die. I die cut the greeting from Kraft Woodgrain cardstock, shadow from thick white cardstock first, and then applied Walnut Stain Distress ink to greeting die cut.

For tiny flowers, I used the Blooming Wave die. It is so adorable!!


Here is another card with my own wood background panel. Oh, and it’s my first winter holiday card this year. :D

For the Leafy Christmas Tree, I die cut them from green coloured cardstock first. I used (from light to dark green) SSS Green Apple, SSS Green Leaf and Concord & 9th Clover cardstock. I then layered all together using foam tape. I decorated the tree with tiny snowflakes, clear snowflake sequins and red jewels. For the sentiment, I used the word “Joy” in the Holiday Sparkle Greetings set.

I love this leafy Christmas tree and the script sentiment!!

SSS Printmaking Florals

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
My awesome crafty friend Miriam designed so pretty and modern-looking floral stamp set called Printmaking Florals. So today I want to share with you a CAS floral pattern card with this set! :D


For making floral pattern, I used some SSS dye inks as below:
Flower petals: Rose Apple & Lipstick Red
Leaves: Green Apple & Soft Navy / Stems: Smoke Gray.

At first, I stamped outline flower image from the Printmaking Florals set onto white Wonky Rectangle panel using Fog Gray dye ink. I wanted to make no-black-line floral pattern but needed to know the exact place for stamping solid images. I then stamped solid images as shown in the picture. :D

For the sentiment, I die cut two different sized banners from white & kraft cardstock using the Nested Banners dies, stamped the greeting on white banner using VersaFine Onyx Black, and then layered them together.

I used Tim Holtz Paper Distresser on the edges!
