Hello crafty friends! Oh YES! Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Release is live!! I want to share my bright and happy cards with you today. :D
For my first card, I used the new Xylo Phone stamp set. I stamped a xylophone on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured the stamped image with Copic markers, and then fussy cut it – I made a “happy-feeling-rainbow” xylophone, lol!
Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend. Today I have 3 rainbow coloured butterfly cards with some Simon Says Stamp goodies.
To-da! This Butterfly Drift die is my main supply – it’s definitely my most favourite butterfly die ever!!
For my first card, I made a watercoloured rainbow butterflies using the Butterfly Drift and the Shimmer Wreath dies. I die cut rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the A2 sized Basic Rectangle die first. I then die cut the centre of the panel using the Shimmer Wreath die. I watercoloured to a floral circle part of the panel as shown in the picture using Distress reinkers in rainbow order. Next, I die cut the Butterfly Drift from watercolour paper, and then applied Distress inks to some butterflies using blending brushes. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.
I decorated the card with cream coloured pearls.
For my second card, I made a tone-on-tone floral background with the Cosmos Bloom die first. I die cut several Cosmos Bloom from white cardstock, then adhered them on white card base as shown in the picture.
I die cut the Butterfly Drift from thick white cardstock, then coloured each butterfly die cut with Copic markers: Red: R24 / Pink: R22 / Orange: YR14 / Yellow: Y15 Green: YG06 / Blue: BG13 / Purple: R85 & V15. I added the outlined Butterfly Drift die cut on the centre of the card first, then added Copic coloured butterflies in place using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Thinking of You Heart die.
For my last card today, I made a watercoloured leafy background with the Leafy Christmas Tree die set. With Crushed Olive & Mowed Lawn Distress inks, I coloured to the panel & leafy tree die cuts. I die cut the Butterfly Drift from white cardstock, inked them, then added on the card.
I really hope my rainbow butterfly cards make you happy!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a safe and restful weekend!
Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all. Love Love Love RejoicingCrafts
To make watercoloured ocean background, I fixed the edge of the watercolour paper with purple tape first. I then applied water to the paper before watercolouring. I lightly coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress reinker, then added blue ink splatters. Once it was dry, I trimmed it using A2 sized Basic Rectangle die.
I heat embossed mermaid tails & waves from the Be A Mermaid set in white, coloured them with Distress inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies: Red mermaid tail:(from bottom to top) Victorian Velvet, Festive Berries, Tattered Rose and Fossilized Amber Green mermaid tail: Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Fossilized Amber. I mounted them on white card base, decorated the card with April Showers sequins and Clear Droplets.
For my second card, I used the Anchor die & the Anchors Background stamp. I made watercoloured sea background using Tumbled Glass, Crushed Olive, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress reinkers. Once it was dry, I trimmed it using the Wonky Rectangle die. I applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink to the Anchors Background stamp, stamped onto watercoloured panel, then lightly touched the stamped images using water brush. For the centre of the card, I die cut the Anchor from thick white cardstock, wrapped it using natural twine, adhered it using foam tape.
For my last card today, I used the Lighthouse die & the In The Round stencil. To give the wave effect, I used the Circle Masks Stencil set. I placed the circle stencils onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel, then lightly traced circles using pencil in the order of small to large sized circle. I then coloured according to circle lines using Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress reinkers.
Hello crafty friends, happy weekend! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Rainbows Release Blog Hop. I’m so delighted to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Keisha Charles’s blog you are on the right track.
For this card, I used the Be A Mermaid set & the Scallop Borders dies. I die cut several waves from coloured cardstock (see the supply list below) in (kind of) rainbow order using the largest scallop borders in the Scallop Borders die set. I then stamped & Copic coloured two beautiful mermaid tails from the Be A Mermaid set. I die cut them with the matching dies. I put all elements as shown in the picture onto 2.75 X 5.5″ white panel using double-sided tape.
For my second 3D card. I made a rainbow coloured background using some Distress Oxide ink – I used the Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Wilted Violet to blend the panel. I then dry embossed the panel with the Roseville Bouquet embossing folder, took out the colours from flower areas. I added rainbow & sentiment on the bottom of the panel.
We can flatten the 3D card and put it in an A2 sized envelope!

For the centre of the card, I added pinkish hydrangea using Hydrangea Petals die – sadly, it’s retired so if you don’t have, you can use any other flower dies.
I die cut several petals from watercolour paper, blended on each petal with Worn Lipstick Distress ink, then gently brushed them with water as shown in the picture. For the pale yellow leaves, I used the detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set. I added pink jewels on the centre of each petals after assembling flower.
