SSS Blossoms & Butterflies Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy, happy Saturday, crafty friends!
I’m so excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Blossoms & Butterflies Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

My cards today, I am featuring so lovely Bouquet of Roses Stencil – it is definitely one of my favourites among entire new release! With this beautiful stencil, I made messy watercoloured flower cards.
I positioned the Bouquet of Roses Stencil over the Wonky Stitched watercolour paper panel in place first, and then traced flowers & leaves with a pencil. I then coloured all flowers & leaves with STAEDTLER Aqua Pencils – these watercolour pencils are good-value-for-money! :D
Next, I brushed all pencil coloured images with a fine tip paint brush. To be honest, I really liked it BUT, I didn’t change my mind to make messy watercoloured flowers, haha!
Ta-da! I freely brushed over the images with a wet paint brush! I LOVE IT!!
For the sentiment, I used the Comfort and Prayers Stamp Set.

Here is one more messy watercoloured floral card with the Bouquet of Roses Stencil. I used the same technique but different colour combo.
I coloured flowers & leaves with watercolour pencils first, and then brushed pencil coloured images with a wet paint brush.

Pinkfresh Studio January Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio January Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Yasmin Diaz’s blog you are on the right track!

My cards today, I’m featuring my most favourites, Embroidered Blossoms & Adore Alpha, among entire January release products.
I made my own floral background with the Embroidered Blossoms Stamp Set – randomly stamped flowers & leaves using dye inks. I then die cut the word “THANKS” from thick white card stock using the Adore Alpha Die Set, also die cut a cute leaf using the Dainty Blossoms Die Set.
I mounted the floral panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
These flowers are so super pretty! I love the new set so much!!

Here is another floral card with the Embroidered Blossoms Stamp Set. I made a wedding card with it.
I stamped a bouquet on white paper panel using dye inks first, die cut “W” from the stamped panel using the Adore Alpha Die Set, and then adhered the alpha “W” in place using fine tip glue pen.

For my last card, I made a floral birthday card with the Embroidered Blossoms Stamp & Die Set.
I die cut a number of flowers & leaves from masking paper using the Embroidred Blossom Die Set. I then adhered the mask die cuts on white paper panel in place.
I inked up the panel with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
I then carefully removed the masks.
I stamped a coordinating floral image with dye inks in each space on the panel. For the sentiment, I used the Scripted Bold Sentiments 2 Stamp Set.

SSS You Are Loved Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy Friday, crafty friends!
I’m super excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp You Are Loved Blog Hop! You Are Loved Release has full of love-themed stamps, dies, and many more!

To create the card, I die cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangle Die, then slightly trimmed the sides. For a green coloured floral background, I used the Bold Flowers Stamp Set. I stamped flowers & leaves with Evergreen, Willow, and Smoke Gray Dye Inks, then inked up the stamped panel with Crushed Olive, Antique Linen Distress Inks. I added ink splatters here and there.
I stamped the sentiment from the So Loved Set on white card stock using VersaFine Onyx Black, then trimmed it with Stitched Circle Die.
I also die cut the Outline Clustered Leaves from white card stock. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted it on Midnight Green card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
The Outline Clustered Leaves Die is definitely my most favourite among entire “You Are Loved” release products.

For my second card, I’m featuring So Loved Stamp Set – it’s SO PRETTY!!!
I randomly stamped flowers & leaves on a 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour panel using Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink, then coloured them with Altenew Artist Markers.

Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy Thursday crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Winter Wonderland Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Zinia Redo’s blog you are on the right track!
Create stunning works of art with the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers! The barrel is filled with water-based color, and coordinates with our line of inks. The flexible, yet sturdy bristles on the brush tip allow you to form both broad and fine strokes. Color can be applied straight from the marker, or diluted with water for a softer look.
For today’s cards, I especially used the Ruby Red, Citrus Burst, Lagoon, and Espresso.

I stamped roses from the Amazing You set on watercolour paper panel using black pigment ink first, and then coloured all stamped images with brand new Winter Wonderland Watercolor Brush Markers:
Red roses: Mixed with Ruby Red, Rouge, and Citrus Burst
Dark green leaves: Emerald
Teal green leaves: Lagoon
I watercoloured the stamped image using brush marker first, and then mixed up with water using water brush. Once the watercoloured image was dry, I coloured all edges of each stamped image using brush marker again (as shown in the picture).

Here is another watercoloured red rose card with the Winter Wonderland Watercolor Brush Markers. I stamped a flower cluster from the Forever and Always set on watercolour paper using black pigment ink, watercoloured it, and then die cut it with the Forever and Always die.

GIVEAWAY 1!
Altenew is giving away a $40 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, January 16th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 1/19/2019.
