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.

Today, I’m featuring the new Painted Flowers & Spring Bouquets Sets. These spring flowers make me so happy!!

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.

SSS Floral Mother’s Day Cards

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.


For my last card today, I made a no-line watercolour card. I stamped flower image on watercolour paper using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink first, coloured it with some Distress inks, then die cut it out. For the sentiment, I used the Mom Word Mix 2 stamp set & the Script Mom die.


Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

ETC Paper Floral Basket Card

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.


This rainbow colour pack is so beautiful!!

Thank you so much ETC Paper!!! I can’t wait to try the glitter paper! :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

SSS Floral Mother’s Day Cards

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.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed the “Love You” circle shaped sentiment from the Love and Valentines Word Mix 2 set in gold, then cut it using the Stitched Circle die.

I added tiny butterflies onto flowers – beautiful flowers & butterflies are a perfect match, right?!!


Here is another Mother’s Day card with the Sweet Friend set. I stamped & Copic marker coloured some flowers, then die cut them with the matching dies. For the white leaves, I used the detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set.

For a mini kraft woodgrain envelope, I used the Mini Interactive Envelope die. For the sentiment, I die cut the “Mom” from metallic gold using the Script Mom die.

Flowers, butterflies and lovely script “Mom” sentiment are perfect for a beautiful Mother’s Day card. :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all.

SSS Hello Beautiful Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful Blog Hop. 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.

As you can see, Simon’s exclusive Hello Beautiful products seem to give me spring as a gift! Beautiful flowers bloomed in my craft room, haha! For my first two floral cards, I used the beautiful Blooming Meadow set along with the Spring Birds and the Bitty Birdhouse set.

I started by stamping pretty birds from the Spring Birds set on white cardstock using Memento Desert Sand dye ink. I then coloured the stamped images with Copic markers, die cut them with the matching dies. Next, I die cut bird house from watercolour paper and then ink blended all the pieces using Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs Distress inks.


For the floral wreath, I stamped flowers & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set onto watercolour paper using Memento Desert Sand dye ink first, and then coloured them with several Distress inks. I used Festive Berries & Fired Brick for red flowers, Seedless Preserves for purple flower, Fossilized Amber & Wild Honey for yellow flowers and Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive for leaves.



For this CAS floral card, I simply stamped flower petals & leaves from the Blooming Meadow set using several SSS dye inks – I used Lipstick Red & Rose Apple dye inks for red flowers, Lavender for purple flower, Clementine for yellow flower and Scuba for leaves. I stamped outlines with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. I then stamped the sentiment in Onyx Black, added tiny butterflies around the flowers.


These spring flowers and birds are so lovely, aren’t they?!!


For my last card for the hop, I used the Lavender Garden set. I stamped flowers & watering can onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, then watercoloured them with Distress inks.

I hope my cards brighten your day!
