Hello crafty friends, TGIF! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Born to Sparkle Release Blog Hop. I’m so delighted to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Bibi Cameron’s blog you are on the right track.
For my first card, I used the Painted Flowers Stamp Set along with the CZ Design Swoopy Thank You Die. I die cut the Rounded Corner Rectangle panel from watercolour paper first. I then stamped Painted Flowers & Leaves onto the panel with several SSS dye inks. I coloured the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I coloured each stamped image using Copic markers to give a highlighter effect.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Thank you” from Mega Thick White cardstock, the shadow from Fog Gray cardstock using the CZ Design Swoopy Thank You Die.
For my second card, I used the Spring Bouquets Stamp Set. I stamped flower cluster on A2 sized white paper panel using Memento Desert Sand dye ink first, and then coloured it with Copic markers.
Red roses : (from dark to light) R39, R29, R24, R22 and R20. Yellow bud : YR14, E11, Y15 and Y02. Leaves : G99, YG06 and G20.
I cut the right side of the floral panel with scissors, dry embossed it with Lumen Embossing Folder, then mounted the panel on Neenah Desert Storm card base.

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend! Today I have floral Mother’s Day cards with the Simon Says Stamp Best Friend Ever Set along with other goodies.
These all three floral cards that I did watercolouring with Distress inks. I love these pretty flower clusters in the Best Friend Ever stamp set.
I stamped flower image on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black first, then coloured the stamped image with some Distress inks. For flower petals, I used Festive Berries, Fired Brick and a little bit of Scattered Straw. For leaves, I used Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. Once the watercoloured image was dry, I die cut it with the matching die. For the sentiment, I stamped “Mama” from the CZ Design Love You Mama set on white cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black, and then die cut it out. I heat embossed the word “LOVE YOU” on black cardstock in white as well. For the background panel, I die cut Chunky Scalloped Rectangle panel from thick white cardstock, dry embossed it with Lumen Embossing Folder. Finally I mounted scalloped rectangle panel on Neenah Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
For my second watercoloured floral card, I made it the same way as the first card. For the flower, I used the Seedless Preserves, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the CZ Design Love You Mama set on beige cardstock in VersaFine Onyx Black, then cut it out using banner die in the Nested Banners die set. For the background, I die cut Wonky Rectangle panel from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock first, then dry embossed it using the Splendid Leaves Embossing Folder.
Hello crafty friends! I’m so happy to know the new papercraft company, ALWAYS! And Today, I will introduce ETC Paper through my card – they were kind enough to provide gorgeous paper packs recently. I have a floral basket card with their beautiful colour cardstock called “Colorplan Rainbow Assortment Cardstock“.
To better express the colours, I used the Altenew Garden Picks 3D layering flowers die set!
I used (dark to light) Scarlet, Bright Red, Hot Pink and Candy Pink for the main flower.
For these tiny flowers, I used (dark to light) Mandarin, Citrine and Sorbet Yellow.
I used Lockwood-Green and Park-Green for these leaves.
Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Today I have a couple of floral Mother’s Day cards with SSS Sweet Friend Set. :D
I started by stamping flowers & leaves from the Sweet Friend set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I then coloured all stamped images with Copic markers. For red flowers, I used R27, R20, R83 and R39 – coloured edge of each petals with R27 first, blended with lighter colours (R20, R83), then lastly added shade with the darkest colour (R39). For pink flowers, I used R22, R81 and R85.
