SSS Autumn Leafy Thank You Cards

Hello crafty friends!
As you know, autumn leaf colour is unexpectedly beautiful. Green leaves to change into red, yellow, orange and even brown. So today I wanna share with you my watercoloured autumn leaves using the Simon’s Large Stitched Maple & Oak dies.
These large sized leaf dies are PERFECT for watercolouring! (left) Maple / (right) Oak.


For my first card, I used the Large Stitched Maple die.And this card, I used the Large Stitched Oak die.

For the background of the card, I made white tone-on-tone leafy patterns. I die cut several stitched leaves from white cardstock, and then randomly adhered them on white card base using double-sided tape (as shown in the picture).
Watercolouring!! I used the Altenew Liquid Watercolours – my most favourite watercolour medium these days. :) I used Sweet Leaf, Paper Bag, Lime, Ruby Red, Espresso.
Once the watercoloured maple leaf was dry, I adhered it on the centre of the card using foam tape, and then added the sentiments.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Thankful” from Burnt Orange (for maple card), Midnight Green (for oak card) cardstock, shadow from vellum paper using the Thankful Shadow dies, and then glue them together. For the tiny “Thank you” sentiment, I used the Tiny Words stamp set.
I decorated the card with some autumn coloured sequins and clear droplets.
I love these two stitched leaves. It’s so versatile!!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Christmas Lights

Hello crafty friends, I can’t believe it’s already November. Time really flies, right? And Christmas is coming up so I will share many Christmas cards with you in this month! :D

Today I am featuring the SSS Christmas Bulbs die set along with other Simon’s Christmas dies – Simon has so many amazing Christmas dies!!

I started by making Christmas patterns on kraft card base. I placed the Holiday Sweater stencil onto kraft card in place, applied white embossing paste using craft knife, then let it dry.
Next, I die cut some Christmas bulbs from watercolour paper.
I inked to Christmas bulb die cut with blender brush – these days I’m obsessed with ink blending with brush, I call it “ink brushing”. :)
For these Christmas bulbs, I used Lipstick Red, Green Leaf and Duckling dye inks.
I die cut the Joyful Frame from white cardstock, and then adhered all elements as shown in the picture onto kraft card base using foam tape.
I added some white enamel dots using Tonic Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Here is another card with the Christmas Bulbs die set.
In this card, I die cut some Christmas bulbs from assorted colour cardstock, then lightly applied white pigment ink to them. For snow-covered light bulbs, I added Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Happy Holiday Wishes

Happy Thursday, crafty friends!
Today I have another couple of Christmas cards with some SSS Cheer and Joy products!
For my first card, I used the, very popular at the moment, Gnome die along with the Holiday Greetings Mix 1 stamp set. I die cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangle panel from kraft cardstock using the Basic Rectangles die set. I then heat embossed the sentiment from the Holiday Greetings Mix 1 set in white onto the kraft panel.
I die cut the Gnome from watercolour paper, applied Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress inks to hat using blender brush, coloured nose & beard with Distress markers, and then assembled. I glued a white pom pom to the top of the hat. :D
I decorated the left side of the card with red & white bakers twine and pom poms.
I love this cheerful sentiment, adorable gnome and white & red pom poms!!

My second card, I used the Fall Frenchies set along with snowflake dies.
I stamped the cute Frenchie drinking hot cocoa from the Fall Frenchies set on watercolour paper using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured it with Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils, then die cut it with the matching die.
I die cut the Stitched Hills from a separate watercolour paper, applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink to the top of the hills. I also die cut some snowflakes from white & pale blue cardstock. I adhered all elements as shown in the picture on white card base, and then added star dust glitter glue on top of the hills for the snowy hills.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
