SSS STAMPtember® Thinking of You

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have another watercoloured floral cards with STAMPtember Fabulous Florals Stamp Set & Thinking of You Heart Die.
To create the first card, I die cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangle Panel die first, and then cut out the centre of the panel using heart die in the Thinking of You Heart die set. I coloured Thinking of You Heart die cut with Altenew liquid watercolors – I used (from top to bottom) Mountain Mist, Lime and Lagoon.
I stamped small sized leaves & berries from the Fabulous Florals set as shown in the picture using Antique Linen Distress ink, then watercoloured all stamped images with Altenew liquid watercolors – the official name is Altenew Watercolor Brush Refills. :D
Once the watercolour panel was completely dry, I mounted two panels on white card base using foam tape. I embellished with a few PPP Citrus Mix Jewels.

Here is a closer look:

For my second card, I made a heart shaped floral wreath with the Fabulous Florals stamp set. I die cut a heart shaped panel from copy paper using the Thinking of You Heart die set. I then placed it on the centre of the watercolour panel, traced along a heart with a pencil.
I stamped small leaves & berries from the Fabulous Florals set along with a heart shape using Antique Linen Distress ink, and then watercoloured it. I’m satisfied with the result! :D
The Fabulous Florals stamp set is literally FABULOUS!!

SSS STAMPtember® Sunflower Hugs

Happy Monday, crafty friends. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Today I have a couple of watercoloured floral “Hugs” cards using the Sunflower Stem Die along with other SSS products.
I die cut the Sunflower Stem from watercolour paper first, and then coloured it with Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens:
Petals: Mango Mimosa / Cinnamon Stick
The dark centre: (light to dark) Cinnamon Stick / Yellow Ochre / Caramel Pecan
leaves: Sliced Kiwi / Indigo Batik
And, I die cut another sunflower from white card stock, then glued the outline die cut over the watercoloured base image using fine tip glue pen.For the shaker panel, I cut out the centre of 4.25″ x 5.5″ white rectangle panel using the double-stitched rounded rectangle panel die in the Shimmer Rounded Rectangle die set. I then adhered vellum paper behind the panel, added Autumn Leaves Sequins.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word “hugs” from white card stock, shadow from Green Leaf card stock using the Healing Hugs die set, then glued them together using fine tip glue pen.

Here is another card with the Sunflower Stem die.
For the autumn coloured clouds background, I inked some clouds on Wonky Rectangle watercolour panel with some Distress inks using the Clouds For Days stencil. I used (from the top) Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass and Gathered Twigs Distress inks.
I mounted the clouds background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the watercoloured sunflower & sentiment banner using foam tape.

Altenew Watercolor Brush Marker Refills Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Altenew Watercolor Brush Marker Refills Release Blog Hop. I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing blog hop!! If you arrived here from Virginia Lu’s blog you are on the right track!
Altenew watercolor brush marker refills are really amazing. They are refills but can be used as liquid watercolor paints. I have many other watercolour mediums but undoubtedly I’ll only use them for a while! I seriously LOVE them so much!!

For my first card, I die cut flower petals & leaves from watercolour paper using the Rose Flurries 3D die set first, and then watercoloured them with several Watercolor Brush Marker Refills & water brush.
For flower petals, I used Ruby Red, Sunkissed, Rouge and Fresh Lemon.
For leaves, I used Lime, Mountain Mist, Sweet Leaf and Emerald.
(**Emerald colour included in this Winter Wonderland set is a different toned Emerald from the one in the Spring Garden set. The Emerald in the Winter Wonderland set is a cool tone of the Emerald colour.)
Once all die cuts were dry, I assembled flowers and leaves. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Hugs” from white card stock using the Script Words die set.
I trimmed the left side of kraft rectangle panel down using the Creative Edges: Notebook die, then inked all edges with Rocky Shore dye ink. I mounted all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape, then added opaque white ink splatters using Pure White ink spray.

For my second card, I made no-line watercoloured floral background with the Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm set.
I randomly stamped flowers & leaves onto watercolour paper panel using Sand Dunes dye ink. I then watercoloured all stamped images with Watercolor Brush Marker Refills:
Red flowers: mixed with Ruby Red and Paper Bag
Brown flowers: mixed with Paper Bag, Rouge and Espresso
Leaves: mixed with Sweet Leaf and Espresso
I added green, brown, opaque white ink splatters to the entire panel.

SSS STAMPtember®From All of Us

Happy STAMPtember, crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my rainbow birthday balloon card using the Celebrate You & Critter Crowd Sets.
I started by stamping adorable critters from the Critter Crowd set on watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink. I then coloured the stamped image with Distress markers & water brush. I die cut it with the matching die.
I die cut several balloons from watercolour paper using different sized balloon dies in the Celebrate You die set. I then made rainbow balloons with some SSS dye inks – I ink blended each balloon die cut using Picket Fence Blender Brush.
Red balloon: (light to dark) Lipstick Red & Merlot
Yellow balloon: Duckling & Clementine
Green balloon: Green Apple & Evergreen
Blue balloon: Audrey Blue & Soft Navy
Purple balloon: Lavender & Deep Purple
Before gluing rainbow balloons, I stamped strings from the Celebrate You set & the sentiment “from all of us” from the Critter Crowd set onto the card front using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then mounted the watercoloured critters & rainbow balloons onto the card using foam tape.
This sentiment string is so good for birthday balloon cards! :D

SSS STAMPtember® Winter Floral Christmas Cards

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
Today I have a couple of cheerful Christmas cards using the Winter Floral Mix Background stamp along with other Simon products.
To create the card, I stamped the Winter Floral Mix Background onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black first, and then trimmed the stamped paper down with 4.25″ x 5.5″ Basic Rectangle Panel die.
I coloured all stamped images with watercolour pencils. For poinsettias, I coloured lighter one leaf and darker another leaf one by one with just one red watercolour pencil. I used Derwent watercolour pencils. I then added water to all watercolour penciled images using a wet paint brush.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Big Joy Word from metallic gold card stock one time & white card stock 4 times, then stacked them up using fine tip glue pen. I decorated the card with natural hemp cord & jingle bells.

Here is another card with the Winter Floral Mix Background stamp.
I stamped & watercoloured the floral images, then added opaque white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I used “Happiest of Holidays” in the CZ Design Ho Ho Postage stamp set.
I added beautiful snowflakes onto the card front – I used the Kate & Rina Snowflake dies.

Making Christmas cards are always so fun and feel very cozy!! I love it so much. :D
