Layer it up card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Layer it up".



Layer it up can be interpreted in various ways, such as building layers with materials, or even mediums. I made a mix of the two for my card. I started to build up layers with different mediums, such as low Opal Magic Rose Gold and then the Honeycomb stencil with Transparent Texture Paste. When that was dry I've added layers with Distress Ink, and then Infusions Sunset Beach and Golden Sands.

 

When everything was dry, I started to make even more layers such as adding Crayon Black Soot Distress to the edges. Then it was time for the first layer of material, and no surprises here, it was of course adding some washi tape. After some stamping layers and splashes of Dylusions, I continued to build up with Wildflowers, jute twine, a frame and Droplets.

Handmade flowers card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Handmade Flowers".



To use washi tape as a base layer is so very fun. It gives a cool effect, and it gives me the chance to use up my washi tape that I find very beautiful, but rarely use. This time it was time for some gold with navy washi tape. Over the washi tape applied a layer of Opal Magic Blue-Gold. When that was dry I applied Infusions Royal Blood and Brusho Prussian Blue with Mod Podge mixed with water and after that only with water. I wanted the Washi was still visible so I didn't add a lot of pigment powders.


The flowers are made with the Tattered Flower Garland die. I die cut everything from black cardstock. Some I painted gold with Opal Magic Blue-Gold and some I gave a blue hue with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Crayon.

 
The frame is made with Stitched Oval Frames die and also made blue with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Crayon. I die cut the oval also with a transparent sheet, but the thinlits don't really cut through plastic. So I trimmed it a bit and had a clear window.

Dylusions Background card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Make Your Own Background". We are also showcasing Dylusions products this week. If you have any we would like to see them used in your project.


This time one time a project without Infusions, but Dylusions. It sounds almost the same but it really isn't. I started to apply washi tape to build up the background. On top I applied a layer of Opal Magic Rose Gold paint. For more texture, I applied  Texture Paste with a stencil. When it was dry, I started working with Dylusions Paint and baby wipes. The Metallique Emerald Green paint really changed the color tremendously.

 
The next step was Dylusions Spray, Vibrant Turquoise and Squeezed Orange. But the colors weren't a great mix, they turned into a muddy color. But I continued by coloring the Scribbly Bird (thanks, Cathie!) With different colors of Distress Reinkers and a water brush.


 

I was almost about to start over again. So I gave it a try with an extra spray of Vibrant Turquoise, and well, that gave me a very nice effect! The Squeezed Orange underneath gave me a kind of dark purple indigo hue. Pfeww project saved, LOL!

Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit card

Hi everyone,

Today just a quick post with a card that I made with the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit. It was a whole adventure and long journey before I got it yesterday. But just in time to make a card with it on the last day of February.


I went for a kraft look with touches of black and white. Love the look of VersaMark Ink on kraft cardstock. I'm a tea person, so I chose for the tea version for this card.

The Secret Garden tag with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Based on a Book".


The book that since my childhood is my favorite, is the secret garden. I remember when I went to buy it with my mom in a special shop in the city next to our small town. I've read the book countless times and that really shows. I still have the book and will cherish it forever along with the beautiful memories.

 

It was time for a tag, I've used the new Distress Mixed Media tag (Thanks Anita!). With different colors of washi tape (Thanks Anita!) I've made the base of my background. With on top a layer of Opal Magic Blue-Gold paint. When that was dry I grabbed some of the Infusions, Emerald Isle for the color of the plants and A Bit Jaded the color of the sky.

 

I've colored the Bird Branch die cut (Thanks, Cathie!) with different colors of  Distress Inks and with Distress Crayon I gave it a little more dimension. The Garden Greens (Thanks, Cathie!) are colored with different sprays, a homemade one made with Peeled Paint Reinker and Sour Apple Perfect Pearls and Dylusions Cut Grass. But before I sprayed them the flowers were first painted with Opal Magic Blue-Gold paint to resist the spray.

Safe Travels card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Transport it".



This card I made for a friend to wish safe travels. I remembered the Just Landed stamp set of Kaisercraft. What a fun set and perfect for this challenge. I started with texture paste and the Swiss Dots stencil. When it was dry, I applied a layer of Opal Magic Blue-Gold paint. Then with Mod Podge which is diluted with water and Infusions A Bit Jaded I have given the background this lovely color. It's one of my favorite colors.
 


Using the MISTI I stamped the Just Landed stamps with the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. A few of the stamps I stamped on Vellum with Versamark ink and I melted the Black Embossing Powder with my heat tool. The edges needed a little something and with a black watercolor pencil and a water brush I darkened them.
