(Right) Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise Dies



Ta-da! Aren’t they so beautiful to put small flowers, leaves, butterflies on top of the large sized, almost A2 sized, butterfly base? Oh, I love them so much!!

My first butterfly card is a proposal card. I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper using the Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise dies, coloured them with Altenew Watercolor 36 pan set. I also die cut wedding ring from SSS Matte Gold Mirror cardstock using the SSS Wedding Rings dies.

I adhered all watercoloured flowers & leaves, wedding ring on the centre of the white butterfly base using foam tape. I decorated the card with small clear droplets.



For the second butterfly card, I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper using the Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise dies, randomly glued all die cuts on white butterfly card base using fine tip glue pen, and then ink blended it with some Distress inks in rainbow order. I added smaller vellum butterfly die cut, pearls and Hero Arts small butterfly on the card.


Here is the last but not least, I decorated the right part of the butterfly with colourful flowers & butterfly. I die cut Hero Arts small flowers & leaves from various colour cardstock, butterfly from white cardstock first. I then lightly added colour each die cut with Copic markers, and then arranged all flowers & leaves onto the right side of the white butterfly card base using foam tape.


Isn’t it so lovely?!! I am so very pleased with the result, haha! :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Yay You Release Blog Hop – Day 1

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Yay You Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this awesome blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Cheiron Brandon’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I’m featuring brand new Arched Greens Background stamp & Happily Ever After dies.

I started by making floral background with the Arched Greens Background stamp. I heat embossed floral images onto watercolour paper using white embossing powder, ink blended the stamped paper with Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw Distress inks, and then trimmed it down with A2 sized Basic Rectangle Panel die.

I die cut the word “Happily Ever After” from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper, and then glued them together. I mounted the floral panel on white card base using Dot Runner Adhesive, added the sentiment die cut on the centre of the card using foam tape, and then decorated the sentiment with tiny butterflies and wedding ring.

For my second card for the hop, I used the new Arches stencil along with other SSS products.

I made 4 different coloured Arches pattern stripes – applied Distress inks over the stencil, then cut each stripe using the largest sized stripes die in the Strips 2 die set. I also die cut thin stripes from Matte Silver Mirror cardstock using the Strips 1 die set. I adhered all stripes on the Woodgrain White card base as shown in the picture.

For the centre of the card, I added Etched Delicate Frond & black sentiment banner using foam tape.

Floral Friday: SSS Blooming Wave

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Today I have a couple of cute floral cards with the Simon Says Stamp Blooming Wave die.

Sometimes, especially when I lost my mojo, I followed other artists’ artwork and I think it would be the best way to get my mojo back, haha!

As soon as I saw this picture from Pinterest, I really wanted to make a floral card. :D


Ta-da! I used small sized flowers and leafy die. I die cut small flowers from white cardstock using the Blooming Wave die, leaves from Smoke Gray cardstock using the Vine Background die. I then applied green coloured Distress inks to all leaves using blending tool.

I made floral patterned panel using the Detail Petal Plate die, added all elements as shown in the picture. Oh, and I didn’t forget to add water drops using Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.


Here is another floral card with the Blooming Wave die. I mounted the sentiment “With All My Heart” on the centre of the floral grey panel first, and then added small flowers around the sentiment using foam tape.


Isn’t this flower so cute?!!

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful Release Blog Hop. I’m so excited to be a part of this cheerful blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Cheiron Brandon’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I’m featuring so gorgeous Thankful Magnolia & Soft Plaid Background stamp sets.


For the background panel, I stamped the Soft Plaid Background on thick white cardstock using Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink, trimmed it down with 3.75″ x 5″ Basic Rectangle panel die. I then inked the edges of the panel with Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink, heat embossed the edges in gold. Lastly, I tore the bottom of the Soft Plaid panel.

I stamped the Magnolia onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured it with some Distress inks, and then fussy cut it out. I mounted all elements on Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base.




For my second card, I used the Baby Words die along with the Soft Plaid Background stamp. I stamped the Soft Plaid Background with SSS Cotton Candy dye ink, trimmed it down using the Wonky Rectangles die. I made a stroller using the Interactive Baby Stroller die and for the sentiment, I used brand new Baby Words die.

Paper Rose Spring Bloom

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a cheerful floral card with the Paper Rose Studio Spring Bloom stamp set. It’s my very first design team project and I’m super excited to be in this amazing team. Woohoo!

Paper Rose Studio Spring Bloom Stamp Set



I made a fun torn-edged background with gorgeous Dip Dye Basics Paper Collection.

I tore it by hands according to the line drawn in the paper, then distressed each paper using paper distresser how much I want to distress the edge of my paper (left picture). I then mounted them onto A2 sized white card base as shown in the right picture.

I stamped the Spring Bloom on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured the stamped image with Copic markers and then fussy cut it out.

I mounted the torn-edged background on A2 white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added Spring Bloom on the left side of the card using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the word “Hello Gorgeous” in the All Occasions Sentiments A5 Sheets.

I love this floral bouquet so much!!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a glorious Easter holiday.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
