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.

Happy Wednesday, crafty friends!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh 5th Birthday Celebration (and January 2019 Release) Blog Hop – it lasts for 3 days!! You may be starting the hop here or coming from Thi Lam’s blog and seeing her beautiful cards, either way I hope you enjoy all the fabulous inspiration from the hop!

For my colourful background, I heat embossed cute images from the Pinata Party set on watercolour paper panel in white, inked up the panel with Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive Distress inks, and then added a bit of watercolours.
I die cut arch window from a separate watercolour paper using the Decorative Tag 2 dies, then lightly inked on it with Antique Linen Distress ink. I decorated it with a few Valentine Jewels Mix.
We can open the window, it means we can add something of a surprise inside the window.
Ta-da!! Happy birthday to you! I stamped & watercoloured these cute birthday critters using the Cupcake Critters Stamp & Die Set.
I love the Decorative Tag 2 Dies so much – it’s my most favourite among entire January release products.

For my second card, I’m featuring Crocus Flowers Stamp Set and Scallop Hearts Dies. I stamped flowers & leaves from the Crocus Flowers set on watercolour paper panel using black dye ink – I used Post-It Notes for masking images. I then coloured all stamped images with Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils.
I applied the Scallop Heart Die over the coloured images, then inlaid all pieces in place as shown in the picture. I decorated the Scallop Heart with small sized Valentine Jewels & Sugar Plum Jewels.

SSS Sending Sunshine Release

Hello crafty friends!

YAY!! The Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine Release is LIVE! There are full of awesome products in this release! Today I have two floral cards to share with you using the new Flower Cluster Die – it’s one of my favourites among the entire new products.
For my first card, I made white flowers on kraft base. I die cut the Flower Cluster from white card stock five times, stacked them up using fine tip glue pen – made 2 thick flower die cuts. I then simply adhered them on kraft card base. For the card base, I applied the Stitched Whirl Background Die.

To created the card, I die cut the Flower Cluster from white paper panel, inlaid the die cut in place, and then added the colours to petals & leaves using coloured card stocks.

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.
