SSS Wednesday Challenge: Sparkle and Shine

Hello crafty friends, I am back with you this week to share a Mother’s Day card I’ve created using newly released SSS Fluttering By products: Center Cut Flowers, Script Mom, Flickering Butterflies, Woodgrain Block, and Messages For Everyday.
Here is what I came up with:

I started by stamping the center floral from the Center Cut Flowers background stamp on watercolour paper using Barely Beige dye ink because of no-line colouring. I coloured the stamped image with Faber-Castell polychromos pencils. In my flowers, I coloured the half of each petal & leaf image with pencils, and then brushed them using (lightly) oiled blending stump – I used Zest-it Pencil Blend but you can use baby oil for blending oil pencils!
I have 120 polychromos pencils but you don’t need to buy too many all at once. 12 basic colour set, it’s good enough for you to try!
After colouring, I die cut the Woodgrain Block from white card stock.

I mounted the woodgrain panel on top-folded white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added coloured flower image, sentiment die cut, tiny butterflies on the card front using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Script Mom dies & Messages For Everyday stamp set.
To finish it off, I added these yummy fruity Nuvo Jewel Drops around the flowers!!

SSS Mama, Love You

Hello crafty friends! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! I guess so many of you are busy with Mother’s Day cards these days (right?!!) and so do I.

Simon Says Stamp released lots of new Spring & Mother’s Day themed products called “Fluttering By” last week, so today I have a floral Mother’s Day card to share with you using the Center Cut Flowers background stamp & CZ Design Love You Mama set along with other SSS products.

Here is what I came up with:
First, I die cut a rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the SSS Stitched Rectangles Panel die set. I then stamped the center floral on the bottom right corner of watercolour panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured it with watercolours and water brush. Once the watercoloured panel was completely dry, I directly stamped the sentiment “Mama” onto the main panel using the CZ Design Love You Mama set in Onyx Black, die cut it with the matching die.
I mounted the watercoloured panel on Fog Gray card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut using foam tape. I stamped “Love You” on white card stock in Onyx Black, trimmed it out, and then adhered under the “Mama” sentiment using the same foam tape. I die cut tiny butterflies from white card stock using the SSS Flickering Butterflies die, and then decorated around the flowers & sentiment area with them using foam tape.

Before I go, wanna share my new stamp set in the SSS Fluttering By Release called “Best Mom“. I will make & share my cards with it as soon as it arrives! I hope you like it!!

SSS Wednesday Challenge: Add Some Texture

Hello crafty friends, I am back with you this week to share my floral card I’ve created using the Tim Holtz Floral Layering Stencil.
Here is what I came up with:
I started by die cutting rectangle panel from kraft card stock using the SSS Basic Rectangles die. I then laid the Tim Holtz Floral Layering Stencil over the kraft panel, applied white embossing paste using palette knife. I carefully removed the stencil, and then sprinkled a bit of clear glitter over the flowers. Once the panel was completely dry, I decorated the left side of the panel with natural twine & pom pom trim. For the sentiment, I used the SSS Let Us Rejoice stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment on the SSS Dark Chocolate card stock in white, trimmed it out using the SSS Stitched Banners die.

SSS Wednesday Challenge: Happy 9th Birthday

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
I am so honoured to be a guest designer over at Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge for the month of April!!

Wednesday Challenge team celebrated their 9th birthday on April 1st so I created a watercolour floral birthday card to celebrate their success!!

I die cut fishtail banner from the right part of white paper panel using the SSS Basic Banners die set first – I used it as a shaker window panel.
Next, I stamped the sentiment “Birthday Wishes” from the SSS Big U Words set on white card stock in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink – I masked “Big” and “To” using Post-It Note because just needed “Birthday Wishes”. I then trimmed it out using small sized fishtail banner die in the SSS Stitched Banners die set.
I stamped and watercoloured flowers & leaves from the SSS Even More Spring Flowers set, then die cut them with the matching dies.

SSS DieCember 2017 Release

Hello crafty friends!
It’s December, the festive mood is in full swing, and we have the perfect Christmas themed dies – Simon Says Stamp DieCember® Release!!

Today I am featuring so beautiful Evergreen Circle die along with other SSS products.
It is a clean and simple Christmas shaker card. I die cut the Evergreen Circle from an A2 sized white paper panel, then adhered the acetate behind the frame using double-sided tape. For the snowy night scene behind the circle window, I ink blended the panel with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and mini ink blending tool, and then added white ink splatters all over the panel.
I die cut snowflakes from watercolour paper using the SSS Kate Snowflake & Stitched Flakes dies, coloured them lightly with Pumice Stone Distress ink. For the sentiment, I used the SSS Big Scripty Greetings Holiday stamp set.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
