SSS Make Magic Release

Hello crafty friends!
Oh YES! Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Release is live!! I want to share my bright and happy cards with you today. :D

For my first card, I used the new Xylo Phone stamp set. I stamped a xylophone on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured the stamped image with Copic markers, and then fussy cut it – I made a “happy-feeling-rainbow” xylophone, lol!

For my starry rainbow background, I ink blended onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel with Distress inks in rainbow order. I used (from the top) Festive Berries, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves. Next, I added lots of stars using the Scattered Stars stencil. I placed stencil on the blended panel, then applied white embossing paste. I love playing with embossing paste on my card to add a bit of dimension and texture! Finally I mounted the panel on white card base using dot runner adhesive first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.



I made another “happy-feeling-rainbow” card with the new Rainy Days die set. I used many different coloured cardstock for it. :D


I will share more of my Make Magic Release cards this Saturday. Please look forward to upcoming Make Magic Release blog hop starting tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Rainbow Butterflies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend.
Today I have 3 rainbow coloured butterfly cards with some Simon Says Stamp goodies.





To-da! This Butterfly Drift die is my main supply – it’s definitely my most favourite butterfly die ever!!


For my first card, I made a watercoloured rainbow butterflies using the Butterfly Drift and the Shimmer Wreath dies. I die cut rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the A2 sized Basic Rectangle die first. I then die cut the centre of the panel using the Shimmer Wreath die. I watercoloured to a floral circle part of the panel as shown in the picture using Distress reinkers in rainbow order. Next, I die cut the Butterfly Drift from watercolour paper, and then applied Distress inks to some butterflies using blending brushes. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.

I decorated the card with cream coloured pearls.


For my second card, I made a tone-on-tone floral background with the Cosmos Bloom die first. I die cut several Cosmos Bloom from white cardstock, then adhered them on white card base as shown in the picture.

I die cut the Butterfly Drift from thick white cardstock, then coloured each butterfly die cut with Copic markers:
Red: R24 / Pink: R22 / Orange: YR14 / Yellow: Y15
Green: YG06 / Blue: BG13 / Purple: R85 & V15.
I added the outlined Butterfly Drift die cut on the centre of the card first, then added Copic coloured butterflies in place using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Thinking of You Heart die.



For my last card today, I made a watercoloured leafy background with the Leafy Christmas Tree die set. With Crushed Olive & Mowed Lawn Distress inks, I coloured to the panel & leafy tree die cuts. I die cut the Butterfly Drift from white cardstock, inked them, then added on the card.

I really hope my rainbow butterfly cards make you happy!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a safe and restful weekend!

Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all.

SSS Rainbows Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Rainbows Release Blog Hop. I’m so delighted to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Keisha Charles’s blog you are on the right track.


Today I’m focusing on the new 3D Card Die Set – it is really awesome die!!


I started by die cutting 2 pieces of large panel from SSS Cream cardstock using the 3D Card dies – there are score lines on each panel.


I folded in using bone folder along the score lines.

I taped those sides as shown in the picture – I did both panels.


I prepared 2.75″ (W) x 5.5″ (H) main panel to show images & sentiments, decorated it, and then put it to the bottom edge as shown in the picture.


Ta-da! We can easily make a 3D stand card. It. Is. So. COOL!!


For this card, I used the Be A Mermaid set & the Scallop Borders dies. I die cut several waves from coloured cardstock (see the supply list below) in (kind of) rainbow order using the largest scallop borders in the Scallop Borders die set. I then stamped & Copic coloured two beautiful mermaid tails from the Be A Mermaid set. I die cut them with the matching dies. I put all elements as shown in the picture onto 2.75 X 5.5″ white panel using double-sided tape.



For my second 3D card. I made a rainbow coloured background using some Distress Oxide ink – I used the Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Wilted Violet to blend the panel. I then dry embossed the panel with the Roseville Bouquet embossing folder, took out the colours from flower areas. I added rainbow & sentiment on the bottom of the panel.

We can flatten the 3D card and put it in an A2 sized envelope!


For my last card for the hop today, I made blue floral card with the Roseville Bouquet embossing folder. I simply applied Roseville Bouquet embossing folder onto SSS Cornflower Blue cardstock, trimmed the panel using the Wonky Rectangle die, and then coloured some parts with white & green Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils. For the sentiment, I used the With All My Heart die.

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!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
