SSS STAMPtember® – Fresh and Fun

Hello crafty friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today I am sharing with you a couple cards using a gorgeous Christmas Graphic stamp set. Actually, I combined two stamp sets – Christmas Graphic and One With Nature stamp sets – in my cards.
SSS-STAMPtemberThese two sets are perfect for each other, don’t you think?

YoonsunHur-20150914-SSS-Stamptember01For my first card, I made a nature themed card.

To create this card, I 1) Stamped the sentiments from the One With Nature set onto the Green Apple card stock using Willow, Jellybean hybrid inks. 2) Stamped the outlined tress, stars, and hearts on the stamped panel using embossing ink, white heat embossed them. 3) Added some dark shading with a Copic marker C1.

YoonsunHur-20150914-SSS-Stamptember03It is the same technique with my first card here, but different themed – CHRISTMAS!!

I 1) Stamped the sentiments from the Big Scripty Greetings Holiday stamp set onto the Lipstick Red card stock using Stone hybrid ink. 2) Stamped the trees on the stamped panel using embossing ink, white heat embossed them. 3) Added tiny dots using Sakura white gelly roll pen.
YoonsunHur-20150914-SSS-Stamptember04Hope my two cards inspire you to combine your new and older sets together!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy STAMPtember®!!!

SSS STAMPtember® Blog Hop

Hello, hello crafty friends! Happy STAMPtember®! Yay!!

StamptemberOh my goodness! I am so super excited and extremely honored to be a part of Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop!!

September is my favourite month of the year other than Christmas for card making and I am ready to enjoy the month-long event, STAMPtember®!! Are you ready?!

YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop01A new Stitched Leaf Wreath die is so versatile. It makes 9 adorable autumn leaves at a time. It can be used by itself as a negative wreath panel, or positive die cuts with other supplies. I really love it!!

To create this card, 1) I die cut many autumn leaves from the watercolour paper using Stitched Leaf Wreath die, loosely coloured them with Distress inks using waterbrush. 2) For my watercolour background, I blended onto the watercolour panel with several colours of Distress ink using mini blending tool, spritzed with water using Mini Mister. I then added water droplets. 3) I tied the natural twine at the bottom of the background panel and then mounted it on the SSS white top fold scored card base. 4) To finish it off, I mounted all leaves as shown to the watercolour panel using dimensional foam tape and then stamped the sentiments with black ink – ‘Hello’ from the Hello Friend Stamp Set, ‘SENDING LOVE’ from the Best Hugs Stamp Set.    YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop02
YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop03Yee haw! What a FUN Christmas!! I particularly LOVE the Warm Christmas Wishes Stamp Set because it’s really happening in Australia lol!

For my second card – oh, super duper fun – I used no-line watercoloring technique. I 1) Stamped images from the Warm Christmas Wishes Stamp Set onto the watercolour paper using Antique Linen Distress ink, coloured them with Distress markers. 2) Stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Graphic Stamp Set on the white card stock using black pigment ink, fussy cut it. 3) Mounted the watercolour panel on the white card base and then adhered the sentiment on that using dimensional foam tape.

YoonsunHur-20150902-SSS-Stamptember-Hop04For my last card for the hop, I played with warm colours of Hybrid ink cube. These are so soft like pigment inks but quite a juicy like dye inks. SO CHARMING!!

To create my wide striped background, 1) I masked off strips using washi tape and blended with (from the top) Lemon Chiffon dye ink, Twirling Tutu, Rosie cheeks, Apricot, Sunkist hybrid inks, and lastly Sunshine dye ink using mini blending tool. I then stamped images from the Hello Friend Stamp Set on the inked panel using embossing ink, clear heat embossed. I then added machine stitches.

YoonsunHur-20150902-CB-B01For my second card, I made simple feminine card. We can easily make a pretty patterned background with lovely stitched leaves from the new In Stitches Autumn stamp set.

I 1) Stamped the stitched leaf from the In Stitches Autumn stamp set on the white paper panel using SSS Hybrid inks. 2) Stamped the sentiment from the Little Things stamp set with black pigment ink. 3) Wrapped a part of the stamped panel with a natural twine before the stamped panel is attached to the white card base. 4) Mounted all elements as shown to the card base. 5) Embellished with a few clear sequins.

The Card Concept #22 – ThankFall

Happy Wednesday everyone! Are you still enjoying the lovely autumn weather? Here we are again with a new challenge at The Card Concept! Check out the beautiful inspiration picture below:
IP-22So lovely! isn’t it? I love those rustic fall colours!!

And… here is what I came up with:
20141029-01

From this challenge, I can pick any of those 6 different styles as part of the wild card team and I chose ‘Freestyle Collage‘. Well… it could be called CAS card but… Hmm… Anyway, I made watercolour card :D

To create my card, I used second generation stamping technique. Second generation stamping is a great way to watercolour painting. For sentiment I heat embossed on the black cardstock in white and cut using banner die among Sweet Havana Die Cuts and then adhered it to the rustic vase image using dimensional foam tape. To finish it off, I spritzed Studio Calico Mister Huey’s Calico Shine around the flower vase.

20141029-02Ohhhh.. I love Mama Elephant Sweet Havana Stamp Set and watercolouring! I was inspired by Nichol Magouirk‘s beautiful watercolour cards :D
