SSS Detail Cloud Plate

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
Today I have another sunflower card with some SSS old & new products. We love sunflowers, especially in autumn, right?!!

I started by making background panel with the new Detail Cloud Plate die.


I applied the Detail Cloud Plate onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel first, and then lightly coloured it with Tumbled Glass Distress reinker. I added ink splatters as well. I then made a sunflower using the Sunflower Petals & Detailed Rose die sets – I die cut all pieces from watercolour paper, then roughly coloured them with some Distress reinkers.


To give my card a bit of antique look, I simply played with Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. :D

SSS Autumn Leaves

Hello crafty friends, happy STAMPtember!
I believe that you had a wonderful and “artistic” weekend. :D
My first torn edge autumn card was loved so much – oh, I was so happy!! So, I have another torn edge autumn card with the gorgeous Crystal Distortion embossing folder today.


I started by making torn edge background with the Crystal Distortion embossing folder. I placed an A2 sized watercolour paper into the embossing folder, ran it through the die cutting machine. I then tore the edges, applied some autumn coloured Distress inks to the dry embossed panel – I used Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Bundled Sage. I added ink splatters and water drops all around the panel.

For the leafy wreath on the centre of the card, I used the Autumn Leaves set. I stamped the images onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, and then coloured them with Distress inks:
Leaves: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Bundled Sage, Tea Dye and Dried Marigold
Berries: Festive Berries, Dried Marigold and Seedless Preserves.


For my second card, I used the Large Stitched Maple die along with the Crystal Distortion embossing folder.

In this card, I debossed using embossing folder. I applied Crystal Distortion pattern to white paper panel first, and then added ink splatters.


I die cut the Large Stitched Maple from watercolour paper, then coloured it with some autumn coloured Distress inks like the first card here. I decorated the back of the maple die cut with a natural twine to make it look more like autumn. :D

Concord & 9th Feature Friday – Week 3

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
I’m back today with my last cards for Concord & 9th as a guest designer for August. I have a couple of watercolour cards with the Heartfelt Blooms & Flowers A La Carte stamp sets. These outline stamp sets are perfect for beautiful watercolour cards.

Heartfelt Blooms

Flowers A La Carte


For my first card, I used the Heartfelt Blossoms Bundle along with liquid watercolours. I stamped a large sized outlined floral image onto watercolour paper using dark brown pigment ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with some liquid watercolours:
Red flowers: Sorbet / Yellow flowers: Buttercup & Stardust
Leaves: Sprout, Parsley and Evergreen / Frame: Wheat

For the sentiment, I used it in the Heartfelt Blossoms die set. I used White cardstock for letters, Wheat cardstock for shadow.

Here is a closer look:


You know what? I really, really love Sorbet, Buttercup, Sprout and Wheat colours – oh, so beautiful!!


For my second card, I used the Flowers A La Carte Bundle – isn’t this set so lovely?!!

I stamped the images onto watercolour paper using dark brown pigment ink, then coloured them with liquid watercolours like the first card. I used all of C9 liquid watercolours to make this card.

I tried to make a wooden rustic flower cart with Wheat, Stardust, Dove and Mushroom liquid watercolours. I’m so happy with the results!


I really hope my cards inspired all of you to make something beautiful.

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Concord & 9th August Liquid watercolours

Hello crafty friends!
Concord & 9th has been released pigment based liquid watercolours this month and all 22 colours are truly, truly fantastic!

I made colour charts to make it easier for you to see as below:

They are so nice warm colours!

These green colours make me want to keep making autumn cards. So gorgeous!!

Fantastic, aren’t they?!!

These 22 liquid watercolours are really intense and concentrated by themselves but it’s easy to make various shades of the same colour by adding or reducing the amount of water I used on my brush. And they blend extremely well.

For my card with liquid watercolors, I used the Festive Friends set.


For my snowy winter night background, I used the Peacock & the Midnight liquid watercolour. I just painted Midnight onto the bottom of watercolour panel without water, then painted Peacock mixed with a little water, and then added more water to Peacock and Midnight on top of the panel as shown in the picture. And the woman holding the Christmas tree, I stamped it from the Festive Friends set using pigment black ink, and then coloured it with liquid watercolours.

Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I added opaque white ink all around the panel. For the sentiment, I used them in the Festive Friends die set.


For my second watercolour card, I used the Fine Line Florals set.

I stamped a large sized flower image from the Fine Line Florals set onto watercolour paper using Wheat dye ink first, and then coloured the stamped image with several liquid watercolours.




I adore these liquid watercolors so much!!

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Painted Flowers

Hello crafty friends!
Today I’m sharing a couple of watercolour flower cards with two beautiful Painted Flowers and Annas Flowers stamp sets. If you know me well, you will know that I absolutely love watercolouring and flowers! :D





For my first card, I made a no-line watercolour flower card with the Painted Flowers stamp set. I stamped solid flowers & leaves from the Painted Flowers set onto watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink at first – I stamped each image fit together as one.

The next step is watercolouring with Distress reinkers! I painted the colours on the stamped images.
Large flowers: Tattered Rose & Victorian Velvet / Small flowers: Scattered Straw (yellow)
Berries: Seedless Preserves / Leaves: Mowed Lawn & Crushed Olive / Twigs: Gathered Twigs
Once it was dry, I drew the details of leaves using Copic Multiliner 0.05 Black Ink Marker.

Here is a closer look:



For my second card, I used one small sized solid flower in the Annas Flowers stamp set. I die cut an A2 sized scalloped rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectangles die set at first. I then repeatedly stamped flowers onto the panel using some blue coloured dye inks – I used (from bottom to top) Soft Navy, Audrey Blue, Surf Blue and Sea Glass. I used MISTI for stamping.


I then loosely painted the stamped panel with some blue coloured Distress reinkers as shown in the picture. It was so fun to do! :D

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a happy week!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
