World Card Making Day! at Simon Says Stamp Blog

Hello, there!
Today, I'm going to share a very exciting event at Simon Says Stamp Blog to celebrate the World Card Making Day!

Focusing on the "World", twenty cardmakers were invited, each being representative of her (or his) home country.
I'm so hornored to be invited as a representative of my country, South Korea. 

Now, we were asked to make some holiday cards, and here goes mine.

I wanted to make a peaceful night scene on Christmas Eve as well as a fun shaker card!
Once you have a card design in your mind, the making process is very simple.

1. Prepare A2 size panel from a piece of watercolor paper, then blend it using distess inks, Black Soot, and Hickory Smoke , then splatter with diluted Gesso on it using a brush.

2. Stamp images on a copic friendly white cardstock paper, color them using copic markers and cut them with matching dies.
  I used Angel Friends Stamp Set with Angel Friends dies setHoliday Pals Stamp Set with matching dies, Happy Snowman Stamp set with matching die. Snowman's hat is from Raindeer Friends Stamp Set & matching dies set

3.  Make a house from Stitched Duo 3 dies and Stitched Borders 1 die, then make a shaker element.
  Background of shaker was made using distress inks, Squeezed Lemonade, and Scattered Straw.
  Sequins are Metallic Gold ConfettiMetallic Silver Confetti, and Marshmallow Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

4. Make a snowy hill using Drifting Stitches Borders die from Simon Says Stamp Exclusive.

5. Layer each elment one by one using foam tapes, then adhere the panel onto a card base.

MFT card design superstar challenge - Coloring category

Hello, I'm sharing a card to enter into MFT card design superstar challenge - coloring category.

Here is my card.
I wanted to make a cozy autumn scene, and stamps from My Favorite Things are just perfect to make a scene. 

I first made an A2 sized panel with white card stock, then stamped images using masking when needed, then colored with copic markers.
Then I trimmed the panel, and then mounted on a white card base, using 1mm thickness foam tapes. 

The stamps I used are :

MFT card design superstar, Clean and Simple genius

Hello, there!
Today I'm sharing a care for entry into the My Favorite Things card design superstar challenge clean and simple genius category .
Please click the image below to link to the challenge site. 

I wanted to make a winter scene in a drop as well as water drop effects on my card.
First I die cut a big water drop, stamped images using masking on it, then colored with copic markers. To give it a glassy look, I gave shades using copic markers and then brushed a little amount of white gesso on it. 

Then I prepared an A2 sized card base, then stamped water drop images from Abstract Art set using dye inks from MFT. 
The large waterdrop diecut piece was mounted using fun foam. 
I also added a smaller waterdrop die cut above the larger one to express drops falling down.

As a final touch, I added a silver metalic twin ribbon. 
To make it Clean and Simple, I let most of the spaces empty white, and made a one layer card. 

Supplies I used are all from My Favorite Things
Stamps : Abstract Art, Winter Wonderland
(I couldn't find the product infos about the stamps I used at 

Hope you enjoyed this. 
Thank you
