SSS Let’s Connect Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello, hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Let’s Connect Release Blog Hop. Oh, I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Heather Hoffman’s blog you are on the right track!

Are. You. Ready to enter the rainbow-coloured world? My cards will be full of rainbow colours today – just wanna say it “rainbowness.” Haha! :D
For my first card, I used the Rainbow Card die set along with the Unicorn Love stamp set. I think the Rainbow Card die set will be a BIG HIT!! I die cut rainbow & clouds from watercolour paper using the Rainbow Card die set, then applied SSS dye inks to each ray of the rainbow in order of rainbow colours:
(from the top red colour) Lipstick Red, Duckling, Green Apple, Audrey Blue and Deep Purple. I stamped a cute unicorn from the Unicorn Love set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured it with Copic markers.
I die cut the Detail Petal Plate from Neenah Smooth Desert Storm cardstock, then mounted it on the same Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape. I then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
I added many of bling-bling sequins & droplets on the rainbow rays!
It is another happy rainbow card on the rainbow shaped card base. I adhered the two clouds using foam tape first. I adhered the sun & other clouds to the back of the rainbow rays using double-sided tape, then adhered the rainbow rays in place.
Oh, I love it. It makes me so happy! I really wanna send you happy hugs!!

For my third cards, I used the Cosmos Bloom die along with Detail Petal Plate die.
I die cut several cosmos from watercolour paper using the Cosmos Bloom die first, then applied rainbow coloured Distress inks to them using Blender Brushes:
(Red) Festive Berries & Fired Brick
(Yellow) Fossilized Amber & Tea Dye
(Green) Crushed Olive & Evergreen Bough
(Blue) Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans
(Purple) Seedless Preserves & Fired Brick
I made a bouquet using rainbow coloured Cosmos Bloom & Eucalyptus Leaves die cuts, and then adhered on the centre of the Detail Petal Plate base using foam tape. I added stamens on the centre of each flower using PPP seed beads.
Here is another rainbow floral card with the Cosmos Bloom die. I adhered flower die cuts on watercolour paper panel, then blended the floral panel with Distress inks. I then washed the colours using a wet paint brush, added opaque white & metallic silver ink splatters all around the panel. I die cut the Detail Meadow Butterfly from ivory cardstock.
The sentiment, I used it in the Sentiment Strips Thinking of You.

SSS Large Floral Dies

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are always happy and healthy.
Today I have a couple of floral cards with some Simon Says Stamp large sized flower dies.
For my first card, I used the Hibiscus Bloom die along with the In The Round stencil. To create the card, I die cut the Hibiscus Bloom from watercolour paper first, and then applied Rosie Cheeks dye ink on the centre of the flower using blender brush. I added a bit of glitter gold using Tonic Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops.
For the background, I applied white embossing paste through the In The Round stencil at the centre of the Wonky Rectangle paper panel. I added opaque white ink splatters here and there. I mounted the background panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added pink Hibiscus Bloom using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy.
I love adding PPP 4mm clear droplets to the flower petals. Always!!

For my second card, I made the same way but used different flower dies – Etched Peony Blossom & Etched Flower Buds dies. For the background, I stamped Thank You Text Background on kraft paper panel using Rusty Hinge Distress ink, then tore the top and bottom of the paper with my hands. I love this vintage look. :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a healthy day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Spring Flowers

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend.
Simon Says Stamp released new products called “Send Happiness” last Thursday – my parcel hasn’t arrived yet, but I made a watercoloured floral card with previous released products instead.
For my card today, I used the Spring Flowers stamp set – it’s definitely one of my very favourites!! :D I randomly stamped flowers & leaves from the Spring Flowers set onto 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, then coloured the stamped images with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. I love watercolouring with bright and vibrant Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. I really like bright and vivid colours, but I chose to wash the colours for a vintage look today.
For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy. As you can see my previous cards, I’d like to use white heat embossed sentiment on black cardstock and the SSS Sentiment Strips Reverse series save me a lot of time! I highly recommend it to people who like to do it like me.For those of you who are tired of something, I send my love and prayers!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a healthy day.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Crafty Hugs Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Crafty Hugs Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from super talented Debby Hughes’s blog you are on the right track!

For today’s cards, I used the So Beautiful Background Stamp.
I die cut the Wonky Rectangle panel from watercolour paper first, and then stamped wildflowers onto the panel using black pigment ink. I then placed Clouds For Days stencil over the panel in place, made clouds using Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
I stamped another set of wildflowers in black, coloured all flowers with polychromos colored pencils, then fussy cut them out. I mounted the panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added flowers on the right place using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Reverse Sympathy.

OCC Spring Card Camp 2 – Day 1

Hello crafty friends!
I’ve been away from my blog for a bit because I was busy with work but I’m attending OCC Spring Card Camp 2 every day. As you already undoubtedly know, Online Card Class has a ton of amazing card classes like Spring Card Camp – and another Spring Card Camp class started 6th of May. It’s still going on so participate in if you don’t have this class yet.

The subject of the Day 1 Kristina leads is masking technique called “Marvelous Masking“. This technique is really great with minimal supplies!
To be brief, I die cut large sized alphabets from printer paper using the Altenew Mega Alphabet dies first, then placed them on diagonal stitched rectangled watercolour paper panel in place – fixed them firmly using washi tape. I blended them with Distress inks, and then stamped tiny flowers & leaves with pigment black ink.
I used Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge and Festive Berries Distress inks for blending.
I used Crushed Olive, Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans.
I used Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves.

For the sentiment, I used the Pinkfresh Studio Hey Gorgeous die & the Simon Says Stamp SSS Sentiment Strips All Things Happy.
Don’t miss this class! You can learn many awesome techniques from amazing card makers!!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
