Altenew Alcohol Markers Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, welcome to the Altenew Artist Markers Release Blog Hop!
altenew-marker-bloghop-bannerIt’s very fun to use a new colouring medium and the new Altenew alcohol ink based markers are truly fantastic! Perhaps I would put my copic markers aside, lol!
altenew-marker-infoMarkers Description: Altenew Artist Markers are alcohol-based, allowing you to beautifully blend colors to any stamped images. Our various range of stamps is perfect for these markers. You can also easily pair them with our Crisp Dye Inks to take your coloring to the next level! The colors in this set are designed to be as close as possible to our existing ink colors, so you can take the color guessing game out of the way when coloring. The markers are refillable and nibs can be replaced!
yoonsunhur-20170111-altenew004What I came up with this set:
yoonsunhur-20170111-altenew001I decided to show you all colours of the set in my card today. I created my own floral background with the Beautiful Day and Peony Bouquet stamp sets – I used Post-It Notes to mask stamped images. I then coloured them with the Altenew markers. For the sentiment, I used the Adore You stamp set.
yoonsunhur-20170111-altenew002yoonsunhur-20170111-altenew003GIVEAWAY 1!

Altenew October Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the Altenew October Product Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived from so amazing Nicole Picadura!!
altenew-oct-bloghop-bannerIn October, we are releasing 16 stamp sets for creating Christmas projects and my card today features the Bells and Bows & Holiday Wishes Stamp Sets – Christmas is coming and festivity is already in the air!!
yoonsunhur-20161013-altenew-001I used a lot of Altenew dye inks to stamp the Christmas bells and bows :D I randomly stamped the layered images from the Bells and Bows set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using dye inks (I used a MISTI to get exact placement of my stamped layers):
Red bells on the top part: Peach Perfect (the base layer), Ruby Red (outline and dark shadow)
Brown bell: Rocky Shore (base), Mocha (shadow), Espresso (outline)
Blue bell on the right side: Sea Glass (base), Desert Night (outline and dark shadow)
Blue bell on the left side: Ocean Waves (base), Dusk (shadow), Desert Night (outline)
Green bell on the right side: Mango Smoothie (base), Evergreen (outline and dark shadow)
Green bell on the left side: Frayed Leaf (base), Forest Glades (shadow), Evergreen (outline)
Red bell on the bottom: Frosty Pink (base), Crimson (shadow), Grapevine (outline) and I used Dark Chocolate to stamp the darkest part of them.
Green bow: Frayed Leaf (lightest), Forest Glades, Evergreen (darkest)
Red bow: Frosty PinkCoral BerryRuby Red
Yellow bow: Warm Sunshine, Rocky Shore, Mocha
Brown bow: Sand DunesRocky ShoreMocha
Purple bow: Lavender Fields, Deep Iris, Midnight Violet. (Phew!!)
For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Holiday Wishes set on red card stock in white, cut it with banner die. I mounted the stamped panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment banner on it using foam tape. I decorated the sentiment banner with natural twine bow, silver jingle bell, and some tiny star wood veneers because it’s Christmas!!
yoonsunhur-20161013-altenew-002It’s so colourful, isn’t it? If you’re considering buying some inks, I strongly recommend the Altenew dye inks. The colours are so truly beautiful!!

Your next stop on the hop is super talented Lydia Evans!! We hope you have all enjoyed our fun and inspirational blog hop!

Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to day 3 of the Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane Collection Blog Hop!
soa-bloghopStamp of Approval is a hand picked, exclusive collection of products that were designed just for the box (the boxes are adorable by the way) that releases quarterly. The products from this collection won’t be available for individual sale until much later this year! The first box
released last year and sold out within hours, so be sure to subscribe to the Wait List so you will be emailed when the collection goes on sale to the WL on September 21st! With the purchase of SOA collections, you get an amazing PDF download for FREE with fabulous projects and step-by-step instructions on how to make the projects with just the contents of the collection!

For my first card, I used so beautiful Merry and Bright Boughs Stamp Set and Merry Labels Dies. With the Merry and Bright Boughs set, you can build your own Christmas wreath but today I just made my own custom stamped background.
yoonsunhur-201609-soa-a001I randomly stamped the boughs, leaves, and berries from the Merry and Bright Boughs set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel with Christmas colours of Distress ink, and then lightly brushed the stamped images using water brush. Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut the sentiment panel from the centre of the panel using the Merry Labels Dies. I then used the MISTI stamping tool to stamp the sentiment and then inked the edges of the panel with Antique Linen Distress ink using mini round blending tool. I wrapped natural twine on the bottom of the sentiment panel three times, added a bow and silver jingle bell. Lastly I mounted two panels as shown to A2 top folded white card base using foam tape.

yoonsunhur-201609-soa-b001For my second card, I used so cheerful Candy Cane Lane Stamp and Die Set. I stamped the sentiment from the Candy Cane Lane set on the centre of the white paper panel with Versafine onyx black ink first, and then randomly stamped the images around the sentiment area with dye inks. Next, I die cut some stamped images from the panel using the Candy Cane Lane Dies, and then inlaid them in place using foam tape. I mounted the stamped panel on A2 top folded red card base using foam tape.
