SSS DieCember® Blog Hop – Day 2

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp DieCember 2020 Release Blog Hop. I’m super-duper excited to be a part of this fabulous blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Amanda Korotkova’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I used the Turtle Doves die set as my main supply. Oh, isn’t this couple so lovely?!! I die cut the turtle doves from watercolour paper first, and then ink blended them with several Distress inks. I also die cut mistletoe from green apple cardstock, ribbon & tiny hearts from lipstick red cardstock. I used glitter gold cardstock for beaks because it’s Christmas, lol!

For the background, I heat embossed the Holiday Words background onto watercolour paper panel in white first, and then made circle on the centre of the panel with the Circle Masks stencils & Distress inks: (from the largest circle) Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple. I tore up the top & bottom parts of the background panel, mounted it on Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base, then added all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape. I also decorated the card with clear snowflakes in the Snowy Pines sequins.

For my second card, I used the Paper Hugs & the Detail Bohemian Plate dies. I started by making a beautiful patterned panel using the Detail Bohemian Plate die. I then made circle patterns (like the first card) with the Circle Masks stencils and blue coloured Distress inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Paper Hugs die – it is so adorable sentiment die!!

  1. I like the circle backgrounds you created on both cards but particularly like the one with the turtle doves. Thanks for sharing your information and inspiration.

  2. I love your cards Yoonsun! The circle masks are perfect for doing the blending of colours that add so much to the card. Your kitties are adorable on your second card with the pretty colours too.

  3. Love the turtle dove card as they are so pretty. Seems you could use them for many different occasions. Also, partial to kitties so thought your card especially cute. Thanks for sharing.

  4. These are great! I love those cute birds, but my favorite is that amazing background you created for the second card, looks so good!

  5. I just love the embossed sentiment with the circle mask! I also love the torn paper top. Absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing your work! :)

  6. I really like your turtle dove card! Those details are so wee but they add so much. I have to admit, your kitty card is my favourite, I love the sentiment and the cats’ scarves!
