SSS Believe in You Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m so thrilled to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Believe in You Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Nichol Spohr’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I am featuring the CZ Design Birthday Sweets stamp set & Lunchbox die.
I started by die-cutting 4.25″ x 5.5″ rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the Basic Rectangle Panel die. I then randomly stamped birthday cakes, candles, stars from the CZ Design Birthday Sweets set on watercolour paper panel using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I coloured all stamped images with Altenew Artist Markers. I die cut the Lunchbox from a separate watercolour paper, stamped images with black dye ink, then coloured them with alcohol markers as well.Let’s look inside! There are another great sentiments & lots of sequins!!
For my second card, I used the Suzy’s Succulents watercolor prints and the Greetings Mix stamp set.
I coloured 8 adorable succulents with Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel, and then fussy cut them.
I stamped sentiment from the Greetings Mix set on the centre of the card front using VersaFine Onyx Black, and then adhered all watercoloured succulents as shown in the picture using foam tape.
Watercolouring succulents is so fun! Succulent leaves have many different colours in each of them.

Share Handmade Kindness Challenge: Week 4

Hello, hello crafty friends, long time no see!
I recently visited my hometown, South Korea. I was so happy with my family and friends for the last three weeks. But, I really missed my craft desk and all of you at the same time!! Hope you are doing very well :D
Jen-SHKindnessToday I want to share with you three cards that I’ve made for the Share Handmade Kindness challenge that amazingly beautiful Jennifer McGuire is hosting over on her site.
JEN-SHK20151124-001-600pxI was super happy when I received (and opened) this package from Jennifer, aren’t they amazing?!
JEN-SHK20151124-002-600pxYES! Kindness is Magic!! It is so true! And I feel I am so blessed because I can share my handmade kindness to everyone, everywhere!! Week 4 (November 23-29) will focus on sharing any kind of handmade kindness with strangers. When I thought about strangers who need the encouragement, the words ‘homeless’ came to my mind. My church members are helping several homeless people cope with their difficult condition, so I decided to send my kindness to those homeless people through my handmade cards.

JEN-SHK20151124-003-600pxIf you are one of my Instagram followers, you’ve already seen this watercolour flower. I painted it onto watercolour paper. Then I trimmed it with MFT Blueprints 25 Die-namics. I stamped the sentiment from the beautiful Hero Arts Acts of Kindness stamp set on the watercoloured paper panel using black pigment ink. I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape. To finish it off, I embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
JEN-SHK20151124-005-600pxMy second card is so simple watercolour card. First, I 1) coloured onto watercolour paper panel with MFT dye inks using a wide paintbrush. 2) Stamped the sentiment in the top right-hand corner of watercoloured panel with black pigment ink. 3) Added some ink splatters. 4) Die cut the small sized Cross from white card stock using SSS Crosses die and then affixed it using dimensional foam tape. 5) Mounted it on SSS Fog Gray card stock using double-sided tape. 6) Embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.
JEN-SHK20151124-007-600pxFor my last card today, I used one of ‘Random Quotes of Kindness’ cards in the package. I 1) Stamped the sentiments from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness stamp set on white card base using SSS Fog Gray dye ink. 2) Stamped the Christmas leaves from the Hero Arts Holiday Pine Branches stamp set on aqua coloured ‘Quotes of Kindness’ card using embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, then added dark shading with a Copic marker C3. 3) Mounted the stamped panel on card base using dimensional foam tape. 4) Embellished with a few PPP clear droplets.
JEN-SHK20151124-008-600pxI hope you’ll join in this beautiful ‘Sharing Handmade Kindness’ challenge! Jennifer is giving away some awesome prizes, too!!

Flower garden

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!!
Today I’m popping in to share my card for entering Hero Arts Nature Challenge!
Here is what I came up with:
YoonsunHur-20150320-01Some of my crafty friends may know that I love watercolouring and flowers!! Hero Arts Flower Garden Stamp set is so very beautiful and I couldn’t resist making card with watercolours! I love subtle watercolouring technique as much as no-line colouring.

To create the card, 1)I positioned flower stamps upper side of the watercolour panel and mounted the entire design on a large stamp press. 2)I stamped them using VersaMark Embossing ink and white heat embossed. I repeated it bottom side of the panel. 3)I applied clean water the embossed panel using a wide brush first and then coloured around the embossed images with Distress ink Picked Raspberry, Dried MarigoldSqueezed Lemonade, and Mustard Seed. 4)For the sentiment, I stamped it from Hero Arts Night and Day Flowers using VersaMark Embossing ink and gold heat embossed. 5)I added Zig wink of Stella clear over the coloured panel. 6)Mixed clear sequins were the finishing touches.
