Hello crafty friends, Yoonsun here!

I know that STAMPtember event officially ended, but I still love making projects with the STAMPtember goodies, and I am so excited to share my cards with you on Simon Says Stamp Blog today! Today I made Christmas themed cards with non-Christmas flowers. (Hope you enjoy them!)

1) HOLIDAY CHEER TO YOU

To create the card, I 1) Stamped Leaves Background on kraft paper panel with embossing ink, clear heat embossed. 2) Stamped the large flower and leaves from the Big Bloom stamp set on watercolour paper panel with embossing ink, gold heat embossed. 3) Coloured them with Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn Distress inks using waterbrush and then spritzed with a Perfect Pearls Mist over the flowers –Red, green and gold are traditional Christmas colours, right?! 4) Used the sentiment from the MFT Winter Wonderland stamp set. 5) Mounted all elements as shown to kraft card base using dimensional foam tape.

2) MAGIC OF THE SEASON
For my second card, I 1) Stamped large flowers and leaves on watercolour paper panel with embossing ink, gold heat embossed. 2) Coloured them with Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn Distress inks using waterbrush and then spritzed with a Perfect Pearls Mist over the flowers same as my first card. 3) Added white and gold ink splatters here and there. 4) Mounted the watercoloured panel to white card base using double-sided tape. 5) Embellished with PPP gold and clear sequins.
