For my first card, I am featuring the CZ Design Birthday Sweets stamp set & Lunchbox die.
I started by die-cutting 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangle Panel die. I then randomly stamped birthday cakes, candles, stars from the CZ Design Birthday Sweets set on watercolour paper panel using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I coloured all stamped images with Altenew Artist Markers. I die cut the Lunchbox from a separate watercolour paper, stamped images with black dye ink, then coloured them with alcohol markers as well.Let’s look inside! There are another great sentiments & lots of sequins!!
For my second card, I used the Suzy’s Succulents watercolor prints and the Greetings Mix stamp set.
I coloured 8 adorable succulents with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then fussy cut them.
I stamped sentiment from the Greetings Mix set on the centre of the card front using VersaFine Onyx Black, and then adhered all watercoloured succulents as shown in the picture using foam tape.
Watercolouring succulents is so fun! Succulent leaves have many different colours in each of them.

SSS Rest and Refresh Release

Happy Thursday, crafty friends! Today I’m sharing my watercolour card using brand new Simon Says Stamp Rest and Refresh release products!!

My card today, I’m featuring Round and Round Background Stamp and Anchor Die.
I started by die cutting Wonky Rectangle Panel from watercolour paper. I then applied anti static powder to this watercolour panel, heat embossed the Round and Round Background on the panel with white embossing powder.
I watercoloured the stamped background with Peerless Watercolors. Next, I die cut the Anchor from white card stock, the Stitched Banner from vellum paper, and then I tied the Stitched Banner with a natural hemp cord. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Tiny Words Encouragement Set on Soft Navy card stock in white, then trimmed it using small sized fishtail banner in the Nested Banners Die Set.
Once the background panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements using foam tape. I embellished with a few Marina Sequins.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all.

SSS Happiness

Hello crafty friends!
I have a summery “Beleaf” card today with the Plantiful Puns stamp set.

Here is what I came up with:
To create the card, I stamped a mason Jar & succulents from the Plantiful Puns set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured them with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then fussy cut them out.
For the watercoloured butterfly panel, I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from watercolour paper using Basic Rectangles die set, trimmed the panel down using Scallop Stitches die set, and then die cut Flickering Butterfly Circle from the centre of the panel. I then lightly watercoloured around the butterflies with green colours. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment “Happiness” from the Plantiful Puns set on the bottom of the panel in black. Finally I mounted the watercoloured panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements on it using foam tape.

Here is a closer look:

SSS Friendly Frolic Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Saturday!
Welcome to the second day of the Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Debby Hughes’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I created my own green leafy background with the Plantiful Puns stamp set – one of my favourites among the new products! I stamped leaves & butterflies from the Plantiful Puns set on the wonky rectangle watercolour paper panel using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink. I then coloured all stamped images with Derwent inktense coloured pencils and water brush.
I’d planned to make no-line watercoloured panel, but then I added thin black lines over the watercoloured images using Copic 0.05mm black multiliner.

For my second card, I used the Leafy Frame die along with other SSS products. I Die cut the Leafy Frame from white card stock. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Handlettered Encouragement set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in white, blended on the panel with Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, and Faded Jeans Distress Inks, and then freely brushed the panel using a wet paint brush.
Once the sentiment panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the Leafy Frame on it using foam tape. For the butterflies, I used Flickering Butterflies & Butterfly Drift dies.

For my last card for the hop, I used Sketch Lotus Flowers set & Diamond Pattern die. For the lotus flowers, I stamped it on thick white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, and then coloured it with Altenew Artist Markers.
