SSS Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday, crafty friends! I’m so excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop! You may be starting the hop here or coming from Yana’s blog and seeing her amazing cards, either way I hope you enjoy all the fabulous inspiration from the hop!

Yay! I enjoy this time of the year the best! It is quite clear that we will be a busy bee creating Christmas cards in the fall/winter season. :D

For my first card, I used the Therefore Background Stamp along with the Dancing Deer & Rina Snowflake Dies. I stamped script sentiment on watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black. I then roughly watercoloured to the stamped panel using Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set, added opaque white ink splatters.
I die cut Dancing Deer from glitter white card stock & Rina Snowflakes from white card stock. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted the panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all others using foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Mod Trees Background Stamp along with the CZ Design Merry Die & Winter Scene Set. I stamped Mod Trees on watercolour paper using light coloured dye ink first, and then trimmed it with Stitched Rectangle panel die. I then watercoloured over the stamped images. For the sentiment, I used the CZ Design Merry Dies.
I stamped & watercoloured deers & trees from the Winter Scene set, die cut them with the matching dies, and then adhered them between sentiments using foam tape.

I’m a classic red, green, kraft and white Christmas colour combo type of person, what about you?

  1. Hey, I loved how you watercolored all those tiny trees! So festive! Your wreath and deer card was so unique too! Just so Christmasy! 🎄 You made this new release by SSS shine and showed us the versatility of all the new stamps and dies! 🤗❄️💛✨🎄

  2. Oh my Yoonsun these are beautiful.
    I tend to like traditional Christmas colours as well and most often I stay with that for my Christmas cards. However, once in a while I go outside of my comfort zone on that but not often.

  3. Such wonderful winter cards!! Love the loose watercolour sentiment background to the sparkley deer. I also really like the colourful mod trè background on the second card. So fun!! Great creativeness

  4. Great cards Yoonsun, I love especially the first one. That deer is so delicate and because of the ouline very versatile. Thank you so much for the gorgeous examples with the new SSS release.

  5. These are a really different way of looking at the products. I like how you backed the deer with sparkle paper; it helps it pop on the busy background. And how fun to see the scene builder stamps outside the scene! They work so nicely with the mod tree background. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love that therefore background sentiment… your card is beautiful; and I like how you used the dies to embellish between the sentiment; it’s so cute. I have come to love Kraft backgrounds of my cards… it think it’s classy. Last year I did make some cards stamped on ivory where I did some watercoloring for the first time … it was so fun !

  7. Your cards are so pretty! I really like the colors that you chose on the reindeer card! The reindeer and the snowflakes are on my wishlist.
