SSS Funny Food

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I want to share with you a couple of fun watercolour cards that I’ve made using the SSS Funny Food stamp & coordinating die set.

I started by stamping adorable donuts from the Funny Food set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured them with Distress markers (Fossilized AmberAbandoned CoralBrushed Corduroy) and water brush, and then die cut them with the matching die. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it on Lipstick Red card stock in white, and then trimmed it down using the fishtail stitched banner die. For the background, I randomly stamped donuts on an A2 sized white paper panel using Fog Gray dye ink, lightly coloured them with Copic markers. I mounted the background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added sentiment banner & donuts on it using foam tape. I then added some drops using Nuvo Jewel Drops.

My second card is “Pizza” card. :D I used the same way as the first card. It is sooooo fun!!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus Release + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
We are already passing through the middle of this month, and that means it’s time for another beautiful Build-A-Flower set! This month it’s Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus – It’s only available as a set, not individual product.

I started by creating striped background with the Watercolor Stripes stencil. I laid the stencil over watercolour paper panel and then inked with Pumice Stone Distress ink. Next, I stamped layered ranunculus from the Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus set using some Distress and dye inks:
Flower: Scattered Straw (Base), Fossilized Amber (Accent) Distress inks
Leaves: Frayed Leaf (Base), Forest Glades (Accent) Dye inks
I then die cut them with the matching dies. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted it on an A2 sized white card base using double-sided tape first, stamped the sentiment in black pigment ink, then added the ranunculus using foam tape.

For my second card, I stamped outlined flowers & leaves on watercolour paper in black pigment ink, and then coloured them with Distress inks and markers.

Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We are releasing 11 new stencils which will be available for purchase on Tuesday, June 13th. :) If you arrived here from Sandra Dietrich’s blog you are on the right track!

I made 2 watercolour flower cards using the new Mega Rose and the Layered Dahlia A stencils. If you can’t draw flowers by hand, using flower stencils can create impressively amazing results with very little skill!!To create the card, I laid the Mega Rose stencil over watercolour paper, taped it in place using washi tape, and then inked with Festive Berries Distress ink and mini ink blending tool. Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down using an A2 sized rectangle panel die. I then added a little bit darker red colour, Fired Brick Distress ink, to the edge of each petal using water brush. For the sentiment, I stamped “thanks” from the Enchanted Iris set, other sentiment from the Layered Letters AFG set using pigment black ink. Finally, I mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape.

Here is another watercolour flower card with brand new stencil, the Layered Dahlia A & B set. I used the same way as the first card but using different colours. I used Tumbled Glass Distress ink on the base and then added Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, and Faded Jeans Distress inks. For the sentiment, I stamped them from the Adore You set using pigment black ink.

SSS Summer Fun!!

Hello crafty friends, happy Sunday!
I hope you are having a wonderful sunny weekend, cold winter here in Sydney though. ;)
I made 2 cards using the new Summer Flowers stamp set along with other SSS products.
For the first card, I started by stamping the sentiment from the Oh Happy Day set onto the centre of the watercolour panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, then summer flowers and leaves from the Summer Flowers set on the edges of the sentiment stamped panel in pigment black. I coloured all stamped images with Derwent inktense colored pencils first, and then lightly brushed them with water brush. I coloured the background with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut it with the Wonky Rectangle panel and then inked all edges of it with Scattered Straw Distress ink and mini ink blending tool. I mounted all elements as shown to white card base using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Summer Flowers and the Summertime Animals stamp sets. I randomly stamped images from two stamp sets on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in black and then coloured them with Peerless watercolors. Once the panel was dry, I die cut from the bottom right corner of the panel using the Stitches Circle die, decorated the panel with white twine. I stamped the sentiment (from the Summertime Animals set) on white card front in black pigment ink, and then mounted the watercoloured panel on it using foam tape.
Enjoy your summer!!

Altenew Thanks with Botanical Garden Stamp Set

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
I’m up on the Altenew blog today with my clean and simple watercolor flower card using the Botanical Garden Stamp Set.
I started by stamping flowers from the Botanical Garden set onto watercolor paper using embossing ink, heat embossed with Antique Gold Crisp embossing powder. I then watercolored flowers, fussy cut them. Next, I made the flower cluster and then adhered it on the right side of the Spicy Yogurt card base using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the word “thanks” from the Enchanted Iris die set. To finish it off, I decorated the card front with some enamel dots and the Gold Glitter Tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!!
