(Right) Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise Dies



Ta-da! Aren’t they so beautiful to put small flowers, leaves, butterflies on top of the large sized, almost A2 sized, butterfly base? Oh, I love them so much!!

My first butterfly card is a proposal card. I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper using the Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise dies, coloured them with Altenew Watercolor 36 pan set. I also die cut wedding ring from SSS Matte Gold Mirror cardstock using the SSS Wedding Rings dies.

I adhered all watercoloured flowers & leaves, wedding ring on the centre of the white butterfly base using foam tape. I decorated the card with small clear droplets.



For the second butterfly card, I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper using the Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise dies, randomly glued all die cuts on white butterfly card base using fine tip glue pen, and then ink blended it with some Distress inks in rainbow order. I added smaller vellum butterfly die cut, pearls and Hero Arts small butterfly on the card.


Here is the last but not least, I decorated the right part of the butterfly with colourful flowers & butterfly. I die cut Hero Arts small flowers & leaves from various colour cardstock, butterfly from white cardstock first. I then lightly added colour each die cut with Copic markers, and then arranged all flowers & leaves onto the right side of the white butterfly card base using foam tape.


Isn’t it so lovely?!! I am so very pleased with the result, haha! :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful Release Blog Hop. I’m so excited to be a part of this cheerful blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Cheiron Brandon’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I’m featuring so gorgeous Thankful Magnolia & Soft Plaid Background stamp sets.


For the background panel, I stamped the Soft Plaid Background on thick white cardstock using Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink, trimmed it down with 3.75″ x 5″ Basic Rectangle panel die. I then inked the edges of the panel with Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink, heat embossed the edges in gold. Lastly, I tore the bottom of the Soft Plaid panel.

I stamped the Magnolia onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured it with some Distress inks, and then fussy cut it out. I mounted all elements on Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base.




For my second card, I used the Baby Words die along with the Soft Plaid Background stamp. I stamped the Soft Plaid Background with SSS Cotton Candy dye ink, trimmed it down using the Wonky Rectangles die. I made a stroller using the Interactive Baby Stroller die and for the sentiment, I used brand new Baby Words die.

SSS Hello Gorgeous Release Blog Hop – Day 1

Hello gorgeous friends, happy Wednesday!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Hello Gorgeous Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this, literally, gorgeous blog hop! If you arrived here from super gorgeous Norine Borys’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I am featuring brand new Folk Art Flowers background stamp.

With this floral stamp, you can stamp it with one colour or with several coloured inks because flower petals and tiny circles can be separated from stamp! Oh so gorgeous!!

I stamped leaves with Green Apple & Evergreen dye inks, flower petals with Lipstick Red, Sunshine, Scuba and Blue Jay dye inks. I then stamped all tiny circles with Deep Purple dye ink. For the sentiment, I used the With All My Heart die. Finally, I decorated the card with tiny butterflies, tiny white pearls and green coloured glitters. :D

For my second card, I used the Garden Boots stamp set – it is so adorable! I randomly stamped images on watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink, coloured all stamped images with Altenew watercolors and some Distress inks. I heat embossed the sentiment on black banner in white, and then decorated it with the new Olive Leaves.

Here is a closer look:




Here is one more card with the Garden Boots stamp set – it was specially made for Ukraine. I watercoloured boot with blue, flowers with yellow, and then added the rainbow on top of the image.

I keep praying for Ukraine!

Floral Friday: SSS Chinese Lantern Stem

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have an encouragement card with SSS Chinese Lantern Stem die. The Chinese Lantern Stem is recently released from Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm. It’s very popular!!


Simon Says Stamp Chinese Lantern Stem Die

Chinese Lantern flower means safety, comfort and protection so I decided to make an encouragement card with it. :D

At first I die cut the Chinese Lantern Stem from watercolour paper. I then coloured all die cuts with Distress inks:
Flowers: Dried Marigold & Spiced Marmalade
Leaves and stems: Bundled Sage & Peeled Paint.
Next, I dry embossed an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using the Crystal Distortion embossing folder, applied Dried Marigold Distress ink to the panel, and then made a square window on the top left part of the panel.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the CZ Design Clean Line Stacks set onto watercolour paper in white, inked onto it with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. I then adhered the sentiment panel to the back of the background panel.

I mounted the background panel and the Chinese Lantern Stems on the card as shown in the picture, and then decorated the card with tiny butterflies & 4mm clear droplets. :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Floral Friday: Altenew Garden Picks

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a floral card with Altenew Garden Picks 3D die set. Altenew has many stunning layered floral dies and the Garden Picks is definitely one of beautiful layered die sets!


Altenew Garden Picks 3D Die Set

To make this card, I started by die cutting the roses and leaves from watercolour paper using the Altenew Garden Picks 3D dies. I then assembled pieces together using fine tip glue pen – I made layered roses & leaves. I applied Distress inks to each die cut using mini blending tools & blending brushes:
Roses: Tattered Rose (pale pink) & Festive Berries (red)
Leaves: Bundled Sage (muted green), Crushed Olive (bright green)
and Antique Linen (vintage yellow).

For the background panel, I inked onto watercolour paper panel with Pumice Stone Distress ink first, and then dry embossed the panel with the Altenew Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder – I love this patterns so much!! I then distressed the edges of the panel using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.

I mounted all elements on khaki card base using foam tape, and then added waterdrops & white ink splatters all around the card. I’m so satisfied with the vintage look! :D

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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
