SSS Cheer and Joy Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Saturday!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Nichol Spohr’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I used the Christmas Foliage die set along with the other Christmas-themed die sets. I die cut Christmas berries from Lipstick Red and kraft card stock, leaves from Green Apple, Green Leafy and Mint card stock using the Christmas Foliage die set. I die cut the word “JOY” from white card stock 5 times, stacked them up using fine tip glue pen, and then applied Antique Linen Distress ink onto it. I die cut tiny snowflakes from white card stock using the Stitched Flakes die.
I adhered the word “JOY” vertically onto the ivory card base first, and then added berries and leaves near the “JOY” using foam tape. I decorated the card with tiny snowflakes, clear sequins, white dots. I added opaque white ink splatters all over the card front as well.

For my second card, I used the Pinecone Background stamp as my main supply. This. Is. really AMAZING!!
I stamped images on watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Vintage Sepia, then roughly coloured stamped images with Altenew Liquid Watercolors: Ruby Red, Paper Bag, Espresso, Mountain Mist, Lime and Sweet Leaf.
I die cut the Lea Snowflake from white card stock, the word “Joyful” from Lipstick Red, shadow from white. Once the main panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added all elements using foam tape. I added, of course, opaque white ink splatters all over the card because, it’s Christmas!! :D

  1. Beautiful cards! I especially like the first ‘JOY’ card and it’s simple, traditional colors and design. Always enjoy your work and awesome artistry.

  2. I love the way in the first card JOY always looks like sugar cookies. How yet its in a neutral color but its a fantastic focal point for all the foliage. Love it. I love the pine cone background. TFS

  3. I love your cards, you make everything look so beautiful and simple to make, then I try and find out how talented you really are. I just love both the cards

  4. I love both of these and they are so different yet both just wonderful. Love the vertical word, love the pine cone depth. Such nice work!

  5. Yoonsun, your Joy card is so elegant, beautifully done. I absolutely love the Pinecone BG stamp, you have certainly done it justice!
