SSS Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Hello crafty friends and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. It’s already the last week of April. Wow, time flies!!

Today I have a watercoloured rose card to share with you using MFT Roses All Over background stamp.I started by stamping roses from the MFT Roses All Over background stamp on watercolour paper using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink, then trimmed it down using A2 sized rectangle panel die in the SSS Basic Rectangles die set. Next, I coloured the stamped roses with 24 Staedtler Ergo Soft Aquarell Watercolour Pencils. I coloured the edge of each petal with pencil first, and then brushed them using water brush. I die cut three of butterflies from heavy weight white card stock using the MFT Flutter of Butterflies Lace Die-namics – my favourite butterfly die set! I then inked the bottom half of them with Tattered Rose Distress ink.
For the sentiment, I used the MFT Essential Sentiments stamp set.

SSS Mama, Love You

Hello crafty friends! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! I guess so many of you are busy with Mother’s Day cards these days (right?!!) and so do I.

Simon Says Stamp released lots of new Spring & Mother’s Day themed products called “Fluttering By” last week, so today I have a floral Mother’s Day card to share with you using the Center Cut Flowers background stamp & CZ Design Love You Mama set along with other SSS products.

Here is what I came up with:
First, I die cut a rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the SSS Stitched Rectangles Panel die set. I then stamped the center floral on the bottom right corner of watercolour panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured it with watercolours and water brush. Once the watercoloured panel was completely dry, I directly stamped the sentiment “Mama” onto the main panel using the CZ Design Love You Mama set in Onyx Black, die cut it with the matching die.
I mounted the watercoloured panel on Fog Gray card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut using foam tape. I stamped “Love You” on white card stock in Onyx Black, trimmed it out, and then adhered under the “Mama” sentiment using the same foam tape. I die cut tiny butterflies from white card stock using the SSS Flickering Butterflies die, and then decorated around the flowers & sentiment area with them using foam tape.

Before I go, wanna share my new stamp set in the SSS Fluttering By Release called “Best Mom“. I will make & share my cards with it as soon as it arrives! I hope you like it!!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Wednesday Challenge: Happy 9th Birthday

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
I am so honoured to be a guest designer over at Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge for the month of April!!

Wednesday Challenge team celebrated their 9th birthday on April 1st so I created a watercolour floral birthday card to celebrate their success!!

I die cut fishtail banner from the right part of white paper panel using the SSS Basic Banners die set first – I used it as a shaker window panel.
Next, I stamped the sentiment “Birthday Wishes” from the SSS Big U Words set on white card stock in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink – I masked “Big” and “To” using Post-It Note because just needed “Birthday Wishes”. I then trimmed it out using small sized fishtail banner die in the SSS Stitched Banners die set.
I stamped and watercoloured flowers & leaves from the SSS Even More Spring Flowers set, then die cut them with the matching dies.

Flora & Fauna: Sending good vibes

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a watercoloured flower card to share with you using the newly released Flora & Fauna Live Life Wildflowers and Texture Five stamp sets – these two are my favourites among entire new products!!
Flora & Fauna Live Life Wildflowers Stamp Set (Left)
Flora & Fauna Texture Five Stamp Set (Right)

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Love Bug set on the centre of watercolour paper panel with VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then stamped solid flowers from the Texture Five set around sentiment area with Festive Berries (red) and Wild Honey (yellow) Distress inks, freely brushed over the stamped flowers with clean water. Distress inks react with water!
Next, I stamped outlined flowers, leaves, and bees from the Live Life Wildflowers set (as shown in the picture) with VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, lightly coloured them with watercolours. Grey dots are from the Texture Five stamp set.
Once the panel was completely dry, I trimmed the panel out using scallop panel die in the MFT Blueprints 27 Die-namics.
Sending good vibes to you!

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