Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to the Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 18 brand new stamp sets, dies, and 12 gorgeous new ink colours in July! If you arrived here from Chari Moss’s blog you are on the right track!
For my first card, I used the new Baby Balloon stamp set. I stamped the outlined image on watercolour panel using Sand Dunes dye ink, and then coloured it with Distress markers and water brush. I then traced the lines using Copic Multiliner Black.
I really want to experience the exhilaration of a sunrise hot air balloon flight. It must be so peaceful yet exhilarating!!

For my second & third cards, I used the new Layered Blossom Cover A & B dies.
I die cut the Layered Blossom Cover A from white card stock, mounted the die cut panel over sticky paper panel, and then applied fine glitter powders. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “hugs” from metal gold card stock using the new Script Words dies five times, and then glued them together using fine tip glue pen.
I die cut the Layered Blossom Cover A from the Apple Red card stock, Layered Blossom Cover B from the Orange Cream card stock, and then mounted them on the Spicy Yogurt card base using foam tape. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the new Sketchy Floral set on black card stock in white, cut the small banner. So simple and easy!!

My fourth & fifth cards, I used the new Pretty Pansies stamp set along with Halftone Circles stamp set.
I randomly stamped layered pansies & halftone circles from white paper panel with several dye inks:
Purple pansies: (from light to dark colours) Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris
Pink pansies: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite (new colours)
Yellow pansies: Citrus Burst, Maple Yellow, Honey Drizzle (new colours)
Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Bamboo, Forest Glades
I then mounted the stamped panel on yellow card base using foam tape. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the word “Thanks!” from the Halftone Circles set on red card stock in white.

Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We are releasing 11 new stencils which will be available for purchase on Tuesday, June 13th. :) If you arrived here from Sandra Dietrich’s blog you are on the right track!

I made 2 watercolour flower cards using the new Mega Rose and the Layered Dahlia A stencils. If you can’t draw flowers by hand, using flower stencils can create impressively amazing results with very little skill!!To create the card, I laid the Mega Rose stencil over watercolour paper, taped it in place using washi tape, and then inked with Festive Berries Distress ink and mini ink blending tool. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down using an A2 sized rectangle panel die. I then added a little bit darker red colour, Fired Brick Distress ink, to the edge of each petal using water brush. For the sentiment, I stamped “thanks” from the Enchanted Iris set, other sentiment from the Layered Letters AFG set using pigment black ink. Finally, I mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape.

Here is another watercolour flower card with brand new stencil, the Layered Dahlia A & B set. I used the same way as the first card but using different colours. I used Tumbled Glass Distress ink on the base and then added Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, and Faded Jeans Distress inks. For the sentiment, I stamped them from the Adore You set using pigment black ink.

SSS Cherished Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Cherished Release Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Nina Marie Trapani’s blog you are on the right track!

Today I will be sharing with you my summer themed cards using brand new Summer Flowers Stamp Set, Circular Lace Stencil, and Wonky Rectangles Die Set.
As you can guess, my first card is watercolour flower card! :D I randomly stamped flowers and leaves from the Summer Flowers set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, and then trimmed it down with the Wonky Rectangle panel die. I coloured them with Peerless watercolors and water brush. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Delightful” from metal gold card stock five times, stacked them up using fine tip glue pen. Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I mounted it on an A2 sized top-folded kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut using fine tip glue pen.

For my second card, I used the Circular Lace stencil as my main supply. I laid the stencil over watercolour panel, and then inked with some Distress inks: Abandoned Coral, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive, Victorian Velvet, and Cracked Pistachio. Once the inked panel was dry, I distressed all edges of the panel using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.
For the sentiment, I used the Believe word die and the Believe stamp set. Around the sentiment, I added some vellum butterflies (from the Butterfly Drift die).

My last card is sunflower card. I heat embossed sunflowers from the Summer Flowers set on kraft panel in white, and then coloured them with Faber Castell polychromos pencils. For the sentiment, I used the Oh Happy Day stamp set.

PPP May Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh May 2017 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Nina-Marie Trapani blog you are on the right track.

I have two adorable cards to share with you today using the Woodland Critters stamp setI know, you already love this super cute and lovable set! It was a HUGE HIT, wasn’t it?!! – along with other brand new products.
I started by stamping all adorable images from the Woodland Critters set (green leaves from the Bold Blooms set, blue stars from the Thoughtful Greetings set) on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in black pigment ink. I then watercoloured them with Distress markers. I also coloured the background with Antique Linen Distress ink. Once the panel was completely dry, I trimmed the bottom of the panel down using the Scallop Borders 2 dies. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Woodland Critters set on dark chocolate card stock in white, and then fussy cut it out. I mounted all elements as shown to top-folded kraft card base using foam tape. To finish it off, I embellished with a few 4mm Nature sequins.
These Woodland Critters are so super cute!! Oh, I LOVE them soooooo much!!!!

For my second card, I used Copic markers for colouring. I created green grass field, blue sky, and white clouds background on watercolour paper, trimmed it down using the stitched rectangle panel die in the Stitched Notes die set. Next, I stamped images from the Woodland Critters set on white card stock in Black Licorice hybrid ink, coloured them with Copic markers, die cut them with the matching dies. For the sentiment, I used the Thoughtful Greetings stamp set.
“Everything is better when you’re around!”
