Altenew: Happiness is coming your way

Hello crafty friends!
I’m up on the Altenew blog with my watercolour flower card using the Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm Set.
I started by stamping flowers and leaves from the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in pigment black ink – I used Post-It Notes for masking flowers. I then watercoloured the stamped images with Peerless watercolors, the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I added black ink splatters here and there. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black, and then mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape.
I hope you’ll always find happiness in whatever you may do!! :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Summer Fun!!

Hello crafty friends, happy Sunday!
I hope you are having a wonderful sunny weekend, cold winter here in Sydney though. ;)
I made 2 cards using the new Summer Flowers stamp set along with other SSS products.
For the first card, I started by stamping the sentiment from the Oh Happy Day set onto the centre of the watercolour panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, then summer flowers and leaves from the Summer Flowers set on the edges of the sentiment stamped panel in pigment black. I coloured all stamped images with Derwent inktense colored pencils first, and then lightly brushed them with water brush. I coloured the background with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut it with the Wonky Rectangle panel and then inked all edges of it with Scattered Straw Distress ink and mini ink blending tool. I mounted all elements as shown to white card base using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Summer Flowers and the Summertime Animals stamp sets. I randomly stamped images from two stamp sets on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in black and then coloured them with Peerless watercolors. Once the panel was dry, I die cut from the bottom right corner of the panel using the Stitches Circle die, decorated the panel with white twine. I stamped the sentiment (from the Summertime Animals set) on white card front in black pigment ink, and then mounted the watercoloured panel on it using foam tape.
Enjoy your summer!!

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.

MFT May Release Countdown – Day 3

Hello crafty friends, blessed Sunday!
Welcome to the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown Day 3.

My card today features the Ocean Pals Stamp Set & Die-namics along with other MFT products.

Here are my easy to follow watercoloured sea scene tutorial with step by step pictures. :)
I die cut a piece of watercolour paper using stitched rectangle panel die in the Blueprints 29 Die-namics. I placed the Ocean Waves Die-namics on the panel, then die cut them.
I watercoloured 4 pieces of the panel (from the bottom) blue using Peerless watercolors, and then made sunray on the top part using the Radiating Rays stencil and Scattered Straw Distress ink. I made self-adhesive sheet using double-sided tape.
I removed the tape from the sheet, and then adhered all pieces on the sticky paper panel.

I stamped and watercoloured all sea creatures from the Ocean Pals stamp set, die cut them with the Ocean Pals Die-namics. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted it on top-folded Primitive White card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown to the card front using foam tape.
Make sure to check out MFT Blog for all the info for today along with links to all the other DT member’s blog posts.

See you tomorrow for more countdown fun! Have a wonderful day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Floral Easter Cards

Hello crafty friends, happy Easter weekend!!
Today I want to share with you my couple of floral Easter cards with the Suzy’s In Full Bloom Watercolor Paintable Prints.

Here is what I came up with:
To create the card, I watercoloured the image with Peerless watercolors and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it out using the Stitches Rectangle panel die, and then mounted it on top-folded Lipstick Red card base using double-sided tape. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Uplifting Thoughts set on black card stock in white, fussy cut it, then added it on the card front using foam tape.
It’s so easy to make with the Suzy’s In Full Bloom Watercolor Paintable Prints!!

My second card is pretty much the same as the first. I watercoloured the flower image with Peerless watercolors. Once it was dry, I fussy cut it, and then stamped the sentiment (from the Happy Easter stamp set) on the yellow flower in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I mounted it on Lipstick Red card base using foam tape. I embellished with a few PPP clear droplets & sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy Easter, everyone!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
