SSS Butterfly Kisses

Hello crafty friends!
Today’s cards feature the Butterfly Kisses stamp set along with other SSS goodies. Butterflies and flowers are the best combination for a beautiful card, right?!!

For my first card, I started by making butterflies background with warm-toned dye inks – Rosie Cheeks, Rose Apple, Lavender and Duckling. I then trimmed the edge of the stamped panel down using the Wonky Rectangle die.

For the centre of the card, I added pinkish hydrangea using Hydrangea Petals die – sadly, it’s retired so if you don’t have, you can use any other flower dies.

I die cut several petals from watercolour paper, blended on each petal with Worn Lipstick Distress ink, then gently brushed them with water as shown in the picture. For the pale yellow leaves, I used the detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set. I added pink jewels on the centre of each petals after assembling flower.

Here is one more card with the Butterfly Kisses stamp set. I stamped solid butterfly images on white panel with cool-toned dye inks – Surf Blue, Audrey Blue, Winter Sky, Green Apple and Duckling. For the centre of the card, I die cut the Cosmos Bloom from watercolour paper, applied Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink, and then brushed it using water brush.

For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.

Spellbinders Watercolor Florals

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I have a watercolour floral card with the Spellbinders Beauty in Bloom Stamp Set.

This rough sketched floral set is a perfect for making loose watercolour floral card! :D

I started by stamping flowers & leaves from the Beauty in Bloom Set on A2 sized watercolour paper panel using black pigment ink. I then coloured all stamped images with several Distress inks.


For loose watercolouring, I used Festive Berries, Fired Brick, Seedless Preserves, Tea Dye and Mowed Lawn Distress inks. I applied water onto stamped image at first, and then loosely coloured with Distress inks. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the Wildflower Sentiments Set on white cardstock in pigment black, then trimmed it as small rectangle banner. Oh, I love the finished result!!

SSS Floral Mother’s Day Cards

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
Today I have floral Mother’s Day cards with the Simon Says Stamp Best Friend Ever Set along with other goodies.

These all three floral cards that I did watercolouring with Distress inks. I love these pretty flower clusters in the Best Friend Ever stamp set.

I stamped flower image on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black first, then coloured the stamped image with some Distress inks. For flower petals, I used Festive Berries, Fired Brick and a little bit of Scattered Straw. For leaves, I used Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. Once the watercoloured image was dry, I die cut it with the matching die. For the sentiment, I stamped “Mama” from the CZ Design Love You Mama set on white cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black, and then die cut it out. I heat embossed the word “LOVE YOU” on black cardstock in white as well. For the background panel, I die cut Chunky Scalloped Rectangle panel from thick white cardstock, dry embossed it with Lumen Embossing Folder. Finally I mounted scalloped rectangle panel on Neenah Desert Storm card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.

For my second watercoloured floral card, I made it the same way as the first card. For the flower, I used the Seedless Preserves, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the CZ Design Love You Mama set on beige cardstock in VersaFine Onyx Black, then cut it out using banner die in the Nested Banners die set. For the background, I die cut Wonky Rectangle panel from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock first, then dry embossed it using the Splendid Leaves Embossing Folder.


For my last card today, I made a no-line watercolour card. I stamped flower image on watercolour paper using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink first, coloured it with some Distress inks, then die cut it out. For the sentiment, I used the Mom Word Mix 2 stamp set & the Script Mom die.

Altenew Whimsical Wonder Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Whimsical Wonder Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from Tricia Schaden’s blog you are on the right track!


(Tie-dye image source from Pinterest)
Google said that tie-dye is a trend that was hugely popular during the pandemic last year when everyone was stuck at home and trying different DIY things – colouring clothes in multiple shades was one of them. However, it seems that now everyone is obsessed with the style. Yes, tie-dye is still one of the biggest trends in 2021. So I made faux tie-dye background with brand new Tie Dye Motifs Stamp Set! Oh, it was SO FUN!!

For these faux tie-dye backgrounds, I ink blended onto whole A2 watercolour paper pnael with light coloured Distress inks first. Next, I applied darker coloured Distress inks to stamps, sprayed water over the inked stamps, then stamped them on the panel. As you know, Distress inks react with water.


First card: I applied Victorian Velvet Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye and Victorian Velvet. I added Hibiscus & “hugs” sentiment on the centre of the card.



Second card: I applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey and Broken China. I dry embossed the panel with the Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder. I added Leafy Wreath & “Thanks” sentiment banner on the centre of the card.



Third card: I applied Scattered Straw Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye, Festive Berries and Victorian Velvet. I added “Thinking of You” sentiment & outlined rose die cut on the centre of the card.



Last card: I applied Milled Lavender Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet. I dry embossed the panel with the Ranunculus Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder. I added “Thanks” sentiment on the bottom of the card.
