Happy New Year, crafty friends! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!
Today, I will share 4 cards using Love You (December-released) products only because Love You, Too products arrived late but don’t worry! I will post new projects using Love You, Too products from next week. So, shall we get started? :D
For my first card, I used the You Have My Heart & the With All My Heart along with other SSS goodies. I die cut A2 sized rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangles die set first. I stamped flowers using Antique Linen Distress ink, watercoloured the stamped images using Distress inks: Red flowers: Festive Berries, Candied Apple and Fired Brick Leaves: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive Flower buds: Wild Honey / Branches: Vintage Photo
Once the watercoloured floral panel was dry, I added sentiment & lovely bird couple as shown in the picture using foam tape. I love this adorable bird couple. :D
For my second card, I used the Splendid Leaves embossing folder & the Floral Card Front die. I applied Distress inks to the inside of an embossing folder first, and then spritzed the inked area with water. After that, I ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine – Ohhhh, I love a watercolour look!!
I die cut the Floral Card Front from thick white cardstock and added onto the background panel using foam tape.
My last card for the hop, I used the Layering Hearts stencil, the With All My Heart and the Love Birds die. I laid the heart stencil on an A2 sized white paper panel in place, applied (from the top) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress inks using blending brush.
I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock using the With All My Heart die, the Love Birds from red cardstock, and then adhered them over the panel using foam tape. I decorated the card with red heart die cuts & clear jewels.

Hello crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my floral “Thinking of You” card using some new & old Simon Says Stamp stamps, dies, and dye inks.
First up, I made my own custom floral background with my all time favourite Bold Flowers Stamp Set. I randomly stamped images on beige coloured paper with some SSS dye inks, added Stitched Whirl Background. I stamped & die cut extra flowers & leaves as well.
I heat embossed the sentiment “Thinking of You” from the Moments of Grace Set on Lipstick Red Cardstock in white, and then die cut it with heart shape die in the Ornate Love Die Set. I adhered vellum heart behind the main red heart panel.
I mounted the floral panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. Oh, I LOVE anything with flowers in it!! :D
Those clear droplets & jewels always make my card more beautiful!!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all! Love Love Love RejoicingCrafts
Happy Wednesday, crafty friends!
Simon Says Stamp recently released lots of love-themed products for Valentine’s Day projects, called “You Are Loved“. So, I will make and share with you love-themed cards during this month. :D
For my card today, I used the Windows to My Heart Die along with other SSS old & new products.I die cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangles Die Set, then die cut heart window from a 3.25″ x 4.5″ watercolour paper panel as well.
I placed the heart window panel on a basic rectangle panel, then traced hearts with a pencil.
I heat embossed leafy heart image from the Ornate Love Set on the panel in white – ready to ink up with pink!
