SSS Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday, crafty friends! I’m so excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop! You may be starting the hop here or coming from Yana’s blog and seeing her amazing cards, either way I hope you enjoy all the fabulous inspiration from the hop!

Yay! I enjoy this time of the year the best! It is quite clear that we will be a busy bee creating Christmas cards in the fall/winter season. :D

For my first card, I used the Therefore Background Stamp along with the Dancing Deer & Rina Snowflake Dies. I stamped script sentiment on watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then roughly watercoloured to the stamped panel using Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set, added opaque white ink splatters.
I die cut Dancing Deer from glitter white card stock & Rina Snowflakes from white card stock. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted the panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all others using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Mod Trees Background Stamp along with the CZ Design Merry Die & Winter Scene Set. I stamped Mod Trees on watercolour paper using light coloured dye ink first, and then trimmed it with Stitched Rectangle panel die. I then watercoloured over the stamped images. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Merry Dies.
I stamped & watercoloured deers & trees from the Winter Scene set, die cut them with the matching dies, and then adhered them between sentiments using foam tape.

I’m a classic red, green, kraft and white Christmas colour combo type of person, what about you?

SSS World Card Making Day

Hello crafty friends, happy World Card Making Day!!
To celebrate this special day, I have a couple of fun Christmas cards with the SSS Ornate Ornaments stamp & die set.

White on kraft is the perfect for Christmas projects! I heat embossed beautiful ornaments from the Ornate Ornaments set on kraft card stock with white embossing powder, coloured them with Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils, and then die cut them with the matching dies.
For the swirly background, I die cut Stitched Rectangle panel from kraft card stock first, and then added patterns using the Stitched Whirl Background die. I also added opaque white ink splatters all over the panel. I mounted the kraft panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then adhered ornaments & sentiment banner using foam tape.

Here is another card with the Ornate Ornaments stamp set. I stamped all images using VersaFine Onyx Black first, and then watercoloured them with Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set.
Red and white twine is a great way of adding a special touch to Christmas projects!

Make sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog HERE for more inspiration from other super talented card makers!

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

Pinkfresh Studio Share Cheer Campaign & Card Drive

Hello crafty friends, happy Word Cardmaking Day!
Today is a day filled with fun & crafting, and we are excited to be joining in on all the festivities! Today we’ve chosen to reveal a very special stamp & die set called, “Share Cheer“, that is available for purchase now! (Sold only in a set, for $30. Discount codes are not valid on this product due to the charitable nature, including the Welcome 10 discount.)
When you purchase this stamp set, 100% of the net profits will benefit UNICEF. We chose this organization because they help children and operate in more countries than any other humanitarian organization. UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories and in the world’s toughest places to reach the children and young people in greatest need. You can learn more about what they do HERE.

The second part of the Share Cheer campaign is a Holiday Card Drive benefiting The Holiday Project, which is local to Pinkfresh Studio Headquarters in Houston, TX. We would love for you to send a holiday themed card(s) to us, and we will personally deliver each card we receive to The Holiday Project! They need approximately 3,000 cards this holiday season, so let’s put our best foot forward together and make a dent in that number! Share your card drive projects with us through the link list at the bottom of the Pinkfresh Studio blog post, and then physically send them to:

Pinkfresh Studio
11261 Richmond avenue, Suite # G108
Houston, TX 77082

I started by stamping an adorable Christmas image from the Share Cheer set on watercolour paper using black pigment ink. I then coloured it with liquid watercolors. I die cut it using the matching die. I stamped a ribbon on a separate watercolour paper using the same black pigment ink, watercoloured it, and then fussy cut it.
For the background panel, I did dry embossing to kraft paper using the Fancy floral 2 die.

GIVEAWAYS!
The spirit of this campaign is about giving, and we really hope that those who are able will purchase this adorable stamp/die set for a good cause. But we also want to be giving as well, so we are going to do 7 giveaways of holiday themed stamp sets! We will draw 4 of the winners from all of the blog comments, and 3 of them from the Card Drive link-up. So, by commenting and creating they will have the chance to win one of the following sets:
Squirrel Friends
Joy & Cheer
Simple Joy
Magical Christmas
Happy Holidays
Train Ride
Home for the Holidays
We will post the Pinkfresh Studio winner on our Giveaway Page on Saturday, September 8thSunday, October 21st.

Waffle Flower October Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, TGIF! I am so happy to be a part of the Waffle Flower October Release Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from an amazing Laura Bassen’s blog you are on the right track!
This Christmas, make your cards stand out with Waffle Flower Christmas Tree Combo (stamp, pop-up tree die)! This tree lies flat for mailing but pops up when you pull the tab! You can make it pull on either side and lock it into place and keep the tree popped up! The matching stamp set provides you a quick way to customize your tree and the Pull-tab Tree Pop-up Add-on Die (available separately) adds another layer of dimension.

Also in Waffle Flower’s October release, you’ll find Hello Pumpkin (stamp, die, combo) that features the popular mice illustrated by Liz Mytinger in a happy fall theme; Yippee (stamp, die, combo) to help you tell your friends and family how proud you are of their success and achievements; Sweater Weather (stamp, die, combo) that can be customized to your heart’s content; Coffee Time (stamp, die, combo) is the perfect set to go with a gift card to a favorite coffee shop; My Sunshine (stamp) will help you create beautiful cards to let your friends and family know how important they are to you.

For my cards today, I used the Sweater Weather Stamp & Die Set – it’s definitely one of my favourites!

To create the card, I stamped a winter sweater on kraft card using black dye ink, coloured it with red polychromos colour pencil, die cut it with the matching die. Next, I stamped the sentiment & tiny dots from the Sweater Weather set on kraft card base using black dye ink. I decorated the card front with washi tape, Christmas coloured twine, snowflake sequins, and then adhered the sweater die cut on the centre of the card using foam tape.

Here is another card with the Sweater Weather Stamp Set. I stamped sweaters, sentiment, tiny dots on watercolour paper panel using black pigment ink first, and then watercoloured them!

Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Kymona Tracey’s blog you are on the right track!

Create stunning works of art with our Watercolor Brush Markers! The barrel is filled with water-based color, and coordinates with our line of inks. The flexible, yet sturdy bristles on the brush tip allow you to form both broad and fine strokes. Color can be applied straight from the marker, or diluted with water for a softer look!

Here is what I came up with:
For my first card, I used the Enchanted Iris stamp set along with the new Watercolor Brush Markers Spring Garden set! I stamped Irises on watercolour paper panel with black pigment ink first, and then coloured them with brand new Watercolor Brush Markers set:
Flower petals: Midnight Violet, Autumn Blaze, Warm Sunshine
Leaves: Limeade, Emerald, Moss
At the top right corner, I decorated it with the Creative Edges: Lace die cuts.

For the second card, I used the Inked Flora stamp & die set. I used the Rubellite & Warm Sunshine for flower, Limeade & Emerald for leaves.
I die cut the watercoloured flower & leaves using the Inked Flora die set, and then adhered them on white card base using foam tape. For a tiny butterfly,  I used the Painted Butterflies stamp set.

GIVEAWAY 1!
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $40 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, October 10th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 10/12/2018.
