Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! I’m so excited to be a part of the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection Blog Hop today!
SOA-BlogHop-BannerStamp of Approval is a collection of products (stamps and dies) that work fabulously together, but they’ll also work incredibly well with supplies you already own. They are released quarterly and sell out quickly (the last one sold out in 33 hours!).

Today I have three cards for you featuring the Butterfly Notes, Lovely Flowers, Handpainted Thanks, and Wonderful Wreath stamp sets.YoonsunHur-20160712-SOA-A001For my first card, I created a watercolour butterfly card with the Butterfly Notes stamp set – it is one of my favourites in the Lovely Notes Collection. First I stamped the large sized butterfly from the Butterfly Notes set on an A2 sized cold press watercolour paper panel with Distress inks: (from the top) Dried Marigold, Tumbled Glass, Victorian Velvet. I then added more colours to each butterfly with Distress inks using a wet paint brush:
Red butterfly: Festive Berries & Fired Brick
Blue butterfly: Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn
Violet butterfly: Wild Honey & Mermaid Lagoon
I added some ink splatters around the butterflies. For the sentiment, I stamped them in black pigment ink. Finally, I mounted the watercolored panel on white card base using double-sided tape.
YoonsunHur-20160712-SOA-B001For my second card, I used the Lovely Flowers and Handpainted Thanks (designed by Neat & Tangled) stamp sets. To start, I randomly stamped the flowers and leaves from the Lovely Flowers set on an A2 sized white paper panel with MFT hybrid inks using the Mini MISTI stamping tool. I then added some opaque white ink splatters over the stamped images. Next, I stamped the sentiments on the bottom left corner of the stamped panel using VersaFine Onyx Black – “thanks” from the (Neat & Tangled) Handpainted Thanks stamp set and “You Made My Day” from the Butterfly Notes set. Once the panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-side tape, then added some clear droplets on the stamped flowers using Ranger Glossy Accents.
YoonsunHur-20160712-SOA-C001For my last card, I used the Wonderful Wreath stamp set. To start, I created my own background with the musical notes – I stamped them on white paper panel in Altenew Evening Gray dye ink. For my focal panel, I die cut from watercolour paper using the banner die in the Lovely Flowers die set first, and then stamped the leaf wreath from the Wonderful Wreath set on it with Altenew Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades dye inks. I also prepared the birds, fruits, pine cones for decorating the wreath. I mounted all elements as shown to an A2 sized white card base using dimensional foam tape, then embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
