SSS Handmade Holiday Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Handmade Holiday Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this warm and cozy blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Emma Williams’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I used the new Etched Delicate Frond die and Pine Bouquet embossing folder.

I applied the Pine Bouquet embossing folder to A2 sized watercolour paper panel first, and then ink blended the panel with some Distress Oxide inks: Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. I then made edge-to-edge shaker panel with lots of sparkling sequins & confetti.

I die cut the Etched Delicate Frond from thick white cardstock, then applied gold embossing powder to the end of each leaf. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Merry die set.

Here is a closer look:



I just could not resist another play with the gorgeous Etched Delicate Frond die. I die cut 3 fronds from thick white cardstock first. I then applied Distress inks to 2 fronds – one that I inked with Evergreen Bough, another that I inked with Bundled Sage. I stamped cardinal in the Winter Birds set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured it with Copic markers.

I dry embossed the panel with the Crystal Distortion embossing folder, mounted it on white card base using double-side tape, then added all elements as shown in the picture. I was so happy to see the result!!

SSS Edge to Edge Holiday Shaker Cards

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a couple of edge-to-edge holiday shaker cards with the beautiful SSS All Snowflakes & Pinecone Background stamps. I was totally inspired by Nina-Marie’s edge to edge shaker card! Please visit her blog and see her gorgeous card. It is so amazing!!



For my first edge-to-edge shaker card, I used the All Snowflakes Background stamp. I simply stamped the snowflake background onto watercolour paper with Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks. I then lightly brushed the background with wet paint brush – Distress inks react with water! Once the background dried, I trimmed it down as an A2 sized panel using an A2 sized rectangle panel die in the Basic Rectangles die set.

For edge-to-edge shaker card, I cut a piece of clear plastic bag bigger than A2 size, applied super sticky double-side tape to all the edges of back of the background panel, covered the panel with clear plastic piece, and then filled it with sequins and glitter. I added the “Peace” white die cut sentiment from CZ Design Peace die set.



For my second shaker card, I used the Pinecone Background stamp. I stamped the background onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Vintage Sepia pigment ink first, coloured the stamped images with some Distress reinkers:
Pinecones: Tea Dye & Gathered Twigs
Pine needles: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough
I made an edge-to-edge shaker card like the first one. It was so fun to do!!


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

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
