Hello, hello crafty friends, long time no see!
I recently visited my hometown, South Korea. I was so happy with my family and friends for the last three weeks. But, I really missed my craft desk and all of you at the same time!! Hope you are doing very well :D
Today I want to share with you three cards that I’ve made for the Share Handmade Kindness challenge that amazingly beautiful Jennifer McGuire is hosting over on her site.
I was super happy when I received (and opened) this package from Jennifer, aren’t they amazing?!
YES! Kindness is Magic!! It is so true! And I feel I am so blessed because I can share my handmade kindness to everyone, everywhere!! Week 4 (November 23-29) will focus on sharing any kind of handmade kindness with strangers. When I thought about strangers who need the encouragement, the words ‘homeless’ came to my mind. My church members are helping several homeless people cope with their difficult condition, so I decided to send my kindness to those homeless people through my handmade cards.
If you are one of my Instagram followers, you’ve already seen this watercolour flower. I painted it onto watercolour paper. Then I trimmed it with MFT Blueprints 25 Die-namics. I stamped the sentiment from the beautiful Hero Arts Acts of Kindness stamp set on the watercoloured paper panel using black pigment ink. I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape. To finish it off, I embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
My second card is so simple watercolour card. First, I 1) coloured onto watercolour paper panel with MFT dye inks using a wide paintbrush. 2) Stamped the sentiment in the top right-hand corner of watercoloured panel with black pigment ink. 3) Added some ink splatters. 4) Die cut the small sized Cross from white card stock using SSS Crosses die and then affixed it using dimensional foam tape. 5) Mounted it on SSS Fog Gray card stock using double-sided tape. 6) Embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
For my last card today, I used one of ‘Random Quotes of Kindness’ cards in the package. I 1) Stamped the sentiments from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness stamp set on white card base using SSS Fog Gray dye ink. 2) Stamped the Christmas leaves from the Hero Arts Holiday Pine Branches stamp set on aqua coloured ‘Quotes of Kindness’ card using embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, then added dark shading with a Copic marker C3. 3) Mounted the stamped panel on card base using dimensional foam tape. 4) Embellished with a few PPP clear droplets.
I hope you’ll join in this beautiful ‘Sharing Handmade Kindness’ challenge! Jennifer is giving away some awesome prizes, too!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
