Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Sunny Days Ahead Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from talented Karin Äkesdotter’s blog you are on the right track! Sadly my parcel hasn’t arrived yet so I will share my Mother’s Day cards using previous released (and my favourite) products with you today. I hope it will arrive soon!
For my first card, I used the Botanical Heart stamp set & the Script Mom die.
I stamped large sized flower image from the Botanical Heart set onto watercolour paper panel with Faded Jeans Distress ink.
As many of you already know, Distress inks react with water so I just freely brushed part of stamped image with water brush as shown in the picture.
I painted my flowers with Faded Jean Distress ink as my main colour, then added Crushed Olive, Fossilized Amber and Mowed Lawn Distress inks.
For the sentiment, I used the Script Mom die & the Tiny Words Encouragement stamp set.
I love this “artsy style” so much!! :D
Here is another Mother’s Day card, I used the Floral Mom Frame die & the Love Friendship stamp set.
I die cut the Floral Mom Frame from watercolour paper first, and then lightly inked on the flowers & leaves with some Distress inks:
Flowers: Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves
Leaves: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn
I decorated the part of the word “MOM” with PPP Valentine Jewels.
Here is a closer look:
I will make & share my cards with brand new Sunny Days Ahead products soon!

OMG! These cards are perfect for Mom”s
Such beautiful cards. I love how you used your base ink colour as part of the actual colouring. Thank you for sharing your lovely work💖
Exquisite, love the blue heart card so much.
Great lesson on distress ink
liked how you used the distress ink that you stamped with to color the flowers in the heart
The blue card is simply breathtaking.
Blue card is awesome
Beautiful mom cards. Love the die cut one
Beautiful cards. Love how colorful they are.
Really beautiful cards … I especially love the blue heart
Gorgeous cards, love your work!
Beautiful cards Yoonsun – I really love your blue heart full of flowers – that is gorgeous
Wow, so stunning, both of them, but I am totally mesmerised by the first card!
I hadn’t seen the Floral Mom Frame die before – it’s fabulous!
Absolutely stunning cards. I can see why the first card is using your favourite items. I never think of stamping flowers in any other colour than black, I don’t know why! The colours you’ve used on both are just beautiful. Thank you for being in this blog hop and sharing your talent X X
The card with Botanical heart is so beautiful, love the coloring with inks.
SWOON!! These are SO BEAUTIFUL!! I LOVE this technique one the First Card!! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
Great presentation on both cards.
Gorgeous cards! Love the floral hear design and the fabulous coloring!
Beautiful cards! Wouldn’t have thought to color the flower heart in that manner. Thanks for the insight!
Both of your cards are beautiful, but the one with Botanical Heart is stunning!!
So artistic bad beautiful!
I like the colors on both of these pretty Mom cards.
You make it look so easy! Maybe I’ll give it a try! Gorgeous cards. TFS!
Amazing cards – love the water coloring with the distress ink! Thanks for such wonderful inspiration!
Beautiful cards!! Love the coloring with distress ink :)
Yoonsun, the heart-shaped card is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your inspiration.
Both cards are beautiful, but I love the one you stamped in Distress Ink. Saved that as a technique to try!
Lovely I would have never dreamed of using the oxide to stamp with ….thanks for sharing
WOW! WOW! WOW! These cards are amazing! But I was particularly drawn to your first card. Such pretty watercolouring! I love the no line water colour look, when you stamp it with the same colour that you coloured it with. I can’t believe you coloured that whole image mostly with the one shade of blue. And that you don’t need fancy watercolour paint to still achieve stunning results!
Your first card rocks! I do like the artsy look about it as well. I think my favourite is the second card using the Mom floral background die as I like the touches of soft colour you used here & there. It’s got a delicate, feminine look to it.
Beautiful cards! I love the wonderful texture on the watercolor paper.
These are lovely! I really like the first one. The script mom die adds such a touch of elegance to the beautiful florals.
Beautiful coloring. I really love this medium.
