SSS STAMPtember® Blog Hop

Hello, hello crafty friends! Happy STAMPtember®! Yay!!

StamptemberOh my goodness! I am so super excited and extremely honored to be a part of Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop!!

September is my favourite month of the year other than Christmas for card making and I am ready to enjoy the month-long event, STAMPtember®!! Are you ready?!

YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop01A new Stitched Leaf Wreath die is so versatile. It makes 9 adorable autumn leaves at a time. It can be used by itself as a negative wreath panel, or positive die cuts with other supplies. I really love it!!

To create this card, 1) I die cut many autumn leaves from the watercolour paper using Stitched Leaf Wreath die, loosely coloured them with Distress inks using waterbrush. 2) For my watercolour background, I blended onto the watercolour panel with several colours of Distress ink using mini blending tool, spritzed with water using Mini Mister. I then added water droplets. 3) I tied the natural twine at the bottom of the background panel and then mounted it on the SSS white top fold scored card base. 4) To finish it off, I mounted all leaves as shown to the watercolour panel using dimensional foam tape and then stamped the sentiments with black ink – ‘Hello’ from the Hello Friend Stamp Set, ‘SENDING LOVE’ from the Best Hugs Stamp Set.    YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop02
YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop03Yee haw! What a FUN Christmas!! I particularly LOVE the Warm Christmas Wishes Stamp Set because it’s really happening in Australia lol!

For my second card – oh, super duper fun – I used no-line watercoloring technique. I 1) Stamped images from the Warm Christmas Wishes Stamp Set onto the watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink, coloured them with Distress markers. 2) Stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Graphic Stamp Set on the white card stock using black pigment ink, fussy cut it. 3) Mounted the watercolour panel on the white card base and then adhered the sentiment on that using dimensional foam tape.

YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop04For my last card for the hop, I played with warm colours of Hybrid ink cube. These are so soft like pigment inks but quite a juicy like dye inks. SO CHARMING!!

To create my wide striped background, 1) I masked off strips using washi tape and blended with (from the top) Lemon Chiffon dye ink, Twirling Tutu, Rosie cheeks, Apricot, Sunkist hybrid inks, and lastly Sunshine dye ink using mini blending tool. I then stamped images from the Hello Friend Stamp Set on the inked panel using embossing ink, clear heat embossed. I then added machine stitches.

  2. Oh to cute, I am in love with your Christmas card! Chuckled when I saw the palm trees…….as though they had lights strung around them : ) Live in Florida and see that quite often for the holidays. Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

  3. Wonderful cards. Love your watercoloured background of your first card and the colours of your last card and the stitched details. Would love to try those hybrid inks.

  4. Great cards, I love how you did your leaves. I need to make a note to myself to remember water coloring and leaves!! I also like your sewing on the card with the stitched rectangle!

  5. Absolutely love the first card. The fall colors are just perfect.
    Of course love the Warm Christmas wishes, since it has a penguin in the set. That card is just so cute and fun.

  6. My favourite is the autumn leaves card. So soft and pretty. I also like how you created a rainbow of shades on the last card. The middle card is cute and whimsical. Bravo!

  7. Really enjoyed all your cards. The water coloring for the leaves is stunning. Then the way you used the santa set was so adorable. That has to be the best use of that set that I have seen! Wonderful work!

  8. I so wish someone would send a card like those to me!!! Especially the first work of art. Normally I wouldn’t consider a wreath die but you have changed my mind completely.

  9. Love all your cards, stunning watercolor and blending techniques! Thanks for ideas on stitched wreath die, using all the leaves and the negative as well. Adorable Santa card and ink blending stripes with clear embossed images is so pretty with stitching details.
