Create with a Large Word Die

Hello friends!
 Great Love (Penny Black)

Now how cool is this large word die?
I have been waiting for Distress Oxide Ink for a while and finally they came ( I got two so far and more to come! ).

For the word die, I swipe the two Distress Oxide Ink onto thick card stock. The ink blended so beautifully... I can see why people are going ga-ga over Distress Oxide Ink now. I use a few droplets of water and splatter over the ink and then made the die cut. Doesn't the word die look amazing? 

I then stamped and colored the Stitched Flowers on top. I think the word die and floral go hand in hand.
I want to point out the Marker pen I used. The regular white gel pen never worked for me. I found this Sakura Marker Pen (White Extra Fine) and it is awesome!

That's it for today! Thank you for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #414


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the More Than One Die Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...Anything Goes

 We are using Stampendous products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

For my project, I am using Geraniums Cling Stamp. 


This stamp set is just the right size to cover the entire card yet it still leaves some white space. I stamped lightly with the help of MISTI and started watercoloring.

I miss you #1

 At first, I colored the petals and leaves with Zig Markers. They are so effective when it comes to color small images. I then used the new-to-me Prima Watercolor Metallic Accent to add more shine and colors.  

I miss you #3

If you have never attempted with watercolors before, this large cling stamp really is a great starting point. As you can see, each part of the geraniums is detailed and has small surface for easy coloring.

I miss you #2
 Much like the geranium in real life, this image did not fail me. I love how hardy geraniums are and the lovely blooms it give so faithfully.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Engineers Rule

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a CAS design.
                       Engineers Rule (Altenew, SSS)                  Engineers Rule Die Set (Altenew, SSS)

you light up my world

With this card, it just shows you how versatile this stamp set and matching die are. You don't have to be an Engineer to receive or like this card. I took a very artsy approach with Altenew Metallic Shimmer Sprays (Warm Sunshine and  Caramel Toffee).

Lastly, speaking of Engineers, my son David is pondering whether he should take up the full time job with a major auto company in Michigan or continue to study for Master's degree in Engineering. Decisions, decisions...I felt that he just graduated from high school not that long ago! Where did all the time go?  Anyhow, I am glad that you stop by today!
