SSS Father’s Day

Hello crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my Father’s day card with the Simon Says Stamp Time For Wine stamp set and the Big Dad word die. I think wine is the best gift for dad. :)
To create the card, I 1) Cut watercolour paper to 5 ½” x 4 ¼” using the Basic Rectangle die. 2) Ink blended the panel with Seedless Preserves, Festive Berries, Scattered Straw Distress inks and mini ink blending tool. 3) Brushed the inked panel using a wet flat brush, added water droplets. Allow to dry completely. 4) Die cut the bottom of the panel using the Big Dad word die (I inlaid white “DAD” die cuts instead). 5) Stamped images from the Time For Wine set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured them with Distress markers, then fussy cut them. 6) Heat embossed the sentiment from the Mom and Dad Icons set on black card stock in white. 7) Mounted all elements as shown to A2 white card base using foam tape. 8) Embellished with a few PPP clear droplets.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

SSS Costume Birthday Party

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!
My teenage niece received a costume birthday party invitation, it will be held next Saturday, so she asked me to make a happy birthday card. Sure! Why not? For her friend, I chose the SSS Critter Costume Party stamp set – this is the perfect choice!!
I started by stamping adorable costume critters (from the Critter Costume Party set), cute bird, party hats, stars (from the Cuddly Critters Accessories set) randomly onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, then coloured them with Distress markers. Random stamping + Distress marker watercolouring is one of my favourite techniques!! Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it down using an A2 sized Basic Rectangle panel die. I mounted the watercoloured panel on top-folded white card base using double-sided tape, then embellished with a few star wood veneers.
My niece looooooved this card so much and gave me two thumbs up! :)

SSS Beautiful Day

Hello crafty friends, it’s a warm sunny day. I can see people are riding bicycles outside. :)
So today I want to share with you my card with the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Ride Stamp & Die Set – it’s definitely one of my favourites among SSS products!!
I started by stamping bicycle, baskets, and kitty from the Beautiful Ride set on watercolour paper using Onyx Black pigment ink. I coloured them with Distress markers, then die cut them with the matching dies.
For the bubbly background, I used the Ring Wreath die. I die cut Ring Wreath from a separate white card stock several times, adhered them on an A2 sized white paper panel using fine tip glue pen. I also die cut Ring Wreath from coloured card stock; Audrey BlueCotton CandyGreen Apple, Lemon ChiffonLipstick RedSea Glass, and Sunshine. Then I inlaid circle cuts in place, as seen above.
  For the sentiment, I used the word “Hello” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.
How about riding a bike and saying “hello” to your neighbors today?

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take Two + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Thank you so much for your sweet comments to my first Leading Lady post for Winnie & Walter last week. I read them over and over!! :)
Today’s card, I used my most favourite technique, random stamping + Distress marker watercolouring, using so adorable Big Hugs Stamp Set.
To start, I randomly stamped images from the Big Hugs set (hearts from the Welcome to the Family stamp set) on watercolor paper in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then trimmed the paper down using rectangle panel die.
I watercoloured all stamped images with Distress markers and water brush, background with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a wet paint brush. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Big Hugs set in white, die cut it with the Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways. Once the panel was completely dry, I mounted the watercoloured panel on navy card base using foam tape, and then sentiment die cut on it using foam tape as well.

Shay has generously donated a $30 gift card for me to give away here! To be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment on my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts (every Saturday in May). I’ll announce one lucky winner at the end of the month! :)
