SSS I Really Like You

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!
I have a couple of Valentine’s Day cards with the newly-released Simon Says Stamp love-themed products today.
For my first card, I used the Peony Bouquet stencil along with the CZ Design Like You Words stamp & die set.
To create the card, I die cut two rectangle panels from thick white cardstock – one is 4.25 x 5.5″ basic panel and another is 4 x 5.25″ wonky panel. I then made a heart window panel using the wonky rectangle panel. I placed heart window panel on the basic rectangle panel, traced along a heart with a pencil.
I laid the Peony Bouquet stencil over the panel in place.
I applied Tattered Rose Distress ink over the heart window panel, Picked Raspberry Distress ink over the basic panel using blender brush.
I stamped the You Are background on the heart window panel using Tea Dye Distress ink. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Like You Words die set.
We tend to believe that “I love you” is the most romantic phrase but sometimes “I like you” is more romantic than I love you. Don’t you think? :D

Here is another Valentine’s Day card with the Like You Words set. I placed the Tumbling Hearts stencil over the wonky rectangle watercolour panel, applied Tattered Rose Distress ink on it using blender brush.
I stamped heart wreath from the CZ Design I Still Do set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink three times, coloured them with Altenew red alcohol markers, and then die cut them with the matching die.
I mounted the pink hearts patterned panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements on the card using form tape. I added water drops using Tonic Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.

PPP Layered Hearts Background

Hello, crafty friends. I have two Valentine’s Day & two birthday cards with the newly-released Layered Hearts Stencils today.
For my first card, I used the Layered Hearts stencils, Large Floral Hearts set, and Happy Valentine’s Day Script die.
I started by making pink hearts background with stencils. I laid Layer A over the 4.25 x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel in place, applied Tattered Rose Distress ink, Worn Lipstick over the Layer B using blender brush. I then smoothly inked Tattered Rose Distress ink all over the panel using mini round ink blending tool. I stamped heart-shaped floral wreath from the Large Floral Hearts set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with Altenew Artist markers, and then die cut it with the matching die. I die cut the Happy Valentine’s Day Script from white cardstock as well. I mounted the hearts background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements using foam tape.

For my second Valentine’s Day card, I made a blue hearts background with Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans Distress inks.
I stamped floral heart (from the Large Floral Hearts set), swans (from the Pond Friends set) on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured them with alcohol markers, and then die cut them with the matching dies.
Here is a yellow hearts background with Scattered Straw & Fossilized Amber Distress inks. I inked Scattered Straw over the Layer A, Fossilized Amber (vivid yellow) over the Layer B.
I die cut the Balloon Shaker from thick white, bow from glitter gold cardstock. I embellished with a few Buttercream Jewels.

My last card today is a shaker birthday card. I made a green hearts background with Crushed Olive & Cracked Pistachio Distress inks first. I then die cut the Scallop Rectangle Frame from white cardstock, adhered the acetate behind the frame, added lots of seed beads, clear sequins, and silver mini star confetti.
For the sentiment, I used the Happy Birthday To You Script die.
The new Layered Hearts Stencils are SO adorable!!

SSS Thinking of You

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!

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!

I inked up the heat embossed panel with Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Tattered Rose Distress Inks, then covered it with the Windows to My Heart panel using foam tape. For the sentiments, I die cut the word “Love” from glitter gold paper, shadow from vellum paper, then stuck them together using fine tip glue pen. Another small sentiment banner, I heat embossed it from the Simple Sentiments 2 Set on Schoolhouse Red card stock in white, trimmed it down.
I decorated the card front with the Outline Clustered Leaves!

Spellbinders January 2019 Stamp of the Month – Key To My Heart

Happy New Year, crafty friends!
Today I have a love themed card with the new Spellbinders January Stamp of the Month – Key To My Heart! It’s a new club to Spellbinders/Fun Stampers Journey in addition to their current club kits. (This month’s “Key to My Heart Stamp Set” also has a coordinating “Key to My Heart Die Set” (DI-0507), sold separately. *You may add the die at time of subscription.)
Here’s a look at the January Stamp of the Month – Key To My Heart.

And, here is what I came up with:
I started by heat embossing beautiful keys & locks from the Key To My Heart set on watercolour paper panel in white. I then ink blended on the stamped panel with Picked Raspberry & Tattered Rose Distress inks. Next, I partially washed colours from images using water brush first, and then added red & yellow to the stamped images as shown in the picture.
I mounted the panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added watercoloured wings & key, sentiment banner on the centre of the card front using foam tape.
The Spellbinders Stamp of the Month is available on the 1st of every month. If you have any questions, click HERE.
