PPP Valentine Theme Week

Hello crafty friends, I hope you all are having a great week!

Today I have a sweet Valentine’s Day card with PPP Heart Vines die along with other love-themed products. Heart Vines die is loved by many crafty people as soon as it is released.
I love it too!

I started by die cutting the Heart Vines from thick white cardstock. I also die cut tiny hearts from red cardstock using the Heart Vines die set.

For the heart background on the centre of the card, I used the Layered Hearts Stencils and Tattered Rose & Festive Berries Distress inks. I laid the first stencil onto heart shaped die cut and applied the Tattered Rose, and with the second stencil, I applied Festive Berries Distress ink. I love the overlapping of colours. :D

For the “Lovely” sentiment, I die cut it from metallic gold cardstock, and another sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Large Floral Hearts set in white.

I mounted all elements as shown in the picture on beige card base. Lastly, I decorated the card with red tiny hearts & Sweetheart Rhinestones.

Sweetheart Rhinestones are perfect for the Valentine’s Day card!!

SSS Love You and Love You, Too Blog Hop – Day 2

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‚Äôs 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

I die cut the sentiment from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper using the With All My Heart die. I also die cut bird couple & wedding ring.

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.



For my second card, I used the Mini Interactive Envelope, the Detail Swirls Plate and the Mini Hearts Party dies. I simply prepared 6 red-coloured mini envelopes, a mini love message card, and a wedding ring, and then made a simply Valentine’s Day card. :)

The new Mini Hearts Party die is so handy. We can make many hearts with a single cut, yay!

For this lovely “XOXO” message, I used the Love Greetings MIX stamp set.


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.

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.

Simon is celebrating 18 years with this amazing sale. So don’t miss out! The code is EGHTN845.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

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!
