Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take One + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m SO excited (and so honoured) to be May’s Leading Lady with Winnie & Walter! Yay, May is one of my favourite months!!

Today I will be sharing with you my watercolor floral background with the In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves stamp sets.

I started by heat embossing outlined flowers and leaves from two flower stamp sets (In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves) on watercolor paper in white. I stamped images using Versamark embossing ink, and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I then watercolored the stamped background with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor and a wet flat brush. I applied clean water on the panel first, and then added warm colours. I used (dark to light) No.36 Wine Red, No.32 Red, No.33 Orange, No.43 Mid Yellow.
For the image on the watercoloured panel, I decided not to color. I just stamped an adorable baby elephant from the Welcome to the Family set in black ink, and then die cut it with the Welcome to the Family Cutaways. For the sentiment, I heat embossed “Sending big hugs” from the Big Hugs set on black card stock in white, and then trimmed it out with the Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways.
Once the watercolored panel was completely dry, I trimmed it out with the larger rectangle panel die in the Essentials: Lana Cutaways. Finally, I mounted all elements as shown to top-folded white card base using foam tape.

Shay has generously donated a $30 gift card for me to give away here! To be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment on my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts (every Saturday in May). I’ll announce the winner at the end of the month! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

SSS Thanks

Hello crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my watercolour thanks card with the SSS Bright Blossoms and Thanks word dies.
sss-feb-product02
Here is what I came up with:
yoonsunhur-20170214-sssp02-001There are so many talented crafty friends around me and my card was inspired by Amy Sheffer‘s beautiful layered watercolour background! She is definitely one of my favourite card makers!!

yoonsunhur-20170214-sss-p01I started by creating a layered watercolour background. I die cut a piece of watercolour paper using A2 sized rectangle panel die in the Basic Rectangles die set, then die cut both ends of the panel using the Scallop Stitches dies. I then watercoloured on the bottom part of the panel in warm shades of red and yellow using Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor and a wet paint brush.
yoonsunhur-20170214-sss-p02Next, I die cut the Bright Blossoms from a separate watercolour paper, then coloured the petals with Festive Berries – I used Distress reinker. I die cut the Bright Blossoms from the same watercolour paper once again because I wanted to use white outlined flower cut.
yoonsunhur-20170214-sssp02-002For the sentiment, I used the Thanks word die.

SSS Hello

Hello crafty friends!
Today I want to share with you my rainbow flower card with the Simon Says Stamp Floral Dot Collage die.
sss-p06
Here is what I came up with:
yoonsunhur-20170131-sss6-01I like to use all the colours of the rainbow for my project!! To create this card, I 1) Die cut a piece of watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangles die. 2) Added Stitched Whirls all over the watercolour paper panel. 3) Die cut the centre of the panel using the Floral Dot Collage die – it’s so pretty die!! 4) Watercoloured around the floral die cut with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor and a wet paint brush in rainbow order, added some opaque white ink splatters. 5) Die cut butterflies from a separate watercolour paper using the Butterfly Drift die, roughly watercoloured them with Gansai Tambi Watercolor as well. 6) Die cut the word “Hello” from white card stock using the Handlettered Greetings dies. 7) Mounted all elements as shown to the Fog Gray card base using foam tape.
yoonsunhur-20170131-sss6-02There is everything I love here – the rainbow colours, flowers, butterflies! :D

SSS Thank You

Hello crafty friends, happy Sunday!!
Today I want to share with you my CAS watercolour card with the SSS Circle Leaves die.
sss-20170129-p05Simon Says Stamp has many elegant and beautiful dies and I love this newly released Circle Leaves in particular.

Here is what I came up with:
yoonsunhur-20170129-sss5-01To start, I die cut the Circle Leaves from the centre of an A2 sized white paper panel. I then made a watercoloured background with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor: No.51 (May Green), No.53 (Mid Green), No.50 (Pale Aqua), No.139 (Purple). I heat embossed the sentiment from the Believe stamp set on black card stock in white, and then trimmed it to the small banner. Lastly I mounted all elements as shown to white card base using foam tape.
yoonsunhur-20170129-sss5-03As you may know, I like to make my own patterned background with stamps or dies, like to fill the background with stamped images but this time, I didn’t do it. This white background without images makes the watercoloured leaves more shining and beautiful!

SSS Watercolour stripes

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!!
I am just popping in to share my simple watercolour cards with some SSS exclusive products.

Watercolour stripes seem to be one of pattern trends that never goes away. I love to make my own watercolour stripes behind the large sized script sentiment! I think watercolour stripes make the focal point shine, always!!
YoonsunHur-20160730-SSS-A001For the yellow watercolour stripes, I used the No. 43 Mid Yellow of Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor. Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Oh Happy Day set in the SSS Masterpiece Box on the centre of the panel in pigment black, then added flowers around the sentiment areas.
YoonsunHur-20160730-SSS-B001Here is another card that I made the same way! I painted the stripes on watercolour paper panel using No. 34 Dark Pink of Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Look For The Miracles set on it in black pigment ink. Then I added stamped flowers using double-sided tape.
