by Yoonsun Hur

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday! I have three floral cards to share with you today using the newly released Life is Beautiful Stamp Set.

I started by stamping lots of outlined flowers from the set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then coloured the background (not the stamped images) with Candied Apple Distress ink and water brush. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “thanks” from gold card stock using the Thanks die. Then once the panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut using foam tape.

For my second card, I heat embossed the flowers on navy card base in white. I just stamped those mini sized flower images on the top & bottom of the panel, and then added some white ink splatters.

My final card is watercolour flower card – it's my most favourite technique!! I lightly drew a circle on the centre of the watercolour paper panel using pencil, then stamped the flowers along the side of a circle line using some Distress inks. I then freely brushed the stamped images using a wet paint brush!! For the sentiment, I stamped it from the Happy Dreams Stamp Set on white card stock in Jet Black dye ink, then cut out a circle banner. Once the watercoloured panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment using foam tape.

Hi, I love this stampset. I just got the I adore you one yesterday,
And I had to order this one too. It really is beautiful! I wanted to ask you on the candy apple card did you mask off every single one of those flowers? I don’t know how else you could’ve done it unless you started with the red card stock and stamped in white ,’which you did not say that you did. Did you cover all those flowers with masks? How did you do that? Stamp and fussycut everyone? How many? Details or a video please? Thank you so much…. love it!

Hi Jane,

I am so happy that you love this stamp set! I just stamped & coloured the background without masking ;) I promise I will make card-making video in the near future! Thank you so much and have a wonderful day! xoxo

Beautiful cards!! Your card with the white embossing on the navy is stunning. I’m always partial to the white on dark. I love this stamp set!! Not only are there beautiful images but there’s some amazing sentiments as well!!

I love all of your pretty cards especially the one that is colorful and uses my favorite color, yellow. I love the white embossing powder on the dark card. I don’t have any white embossing powder but I like how it looks so much I think I want to get some! I have some black card stock that the white would look really nice on. I love the flowers too. I am a big fan of any kind of flower stamps and these are really nice. Great job Yoonsun!
