Butterfly 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 "Little Critters".


Still not feeling well at all, but fortunately I had some energy to make a project AND edit the video this week. Hope you'll like it...

 

I played with my Gelli Plate and did a technique that I've learned last year on a craft event with regular Distress Inks. I don't really see the difference between the two inks. I think I need to experiment more with the Gelli Plate and Distress Oxides.

Home card

Hi everyone,

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


Unfortunately I'm still not feeling well, but I did manage to make a card while I was feeling a bit better. I taped the process, so when I'm feeling better I will add it to YouTube and to the posts.
Sorry for another very short post...

Paper Artsy The Great Outdoors art journal spread 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 "The Great Outdoors". We are also showcasing Paper Arsty products. We would love the see them used in your project if you have them.


It has been ages ago that I've used my art journal. But this theme was perfect to make a new one, because my old one was full. First of all, I made a bit of texture with Texture Paste and Tile stencil. Then I used 4 different colors of Opal Magic paint: Green-Gold, Rose-Gold, Violet-Gold and Blue-Gold. When everything was dry I added some extra texture with cardstock that I've die cutted with one of the Polka Dots Borders.
 

Then I added more color with Paper Artsy Infusions: The Sage, Slime, Sunset Beach, Blackcurrant and A Bit Jaded in combination with Mod Podge that I've mixed with water.
The effect of spraying the infusions with water is magical. I have used a lot of infusions. And had to dab it up a little bit here and there.

Number 70 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 "We've got your number".



This card I've made for my mother's 70th birthday. I started to build up a background with Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. What a cool effect these Oxides give. I always have to hold myself in because you can make as many layers as you like. I haven't count the layers, but I'm thinking about 7 or maybe 8...

 

I've added some depth and interest with different Distress Oxide inks and number stamps. Oxides work better for stamping ink then Distress Ink. And what the best part is that you can stamp light colors on dark backgrounds.

 

As a little girl I picked wildflowers for my mother's birthday. So I used these Wildflowers (thanks Marzena!) and colored with Metallique Waxes Rose Gold, Old Silver and Bronze Age. On an even surface, it's very easy to apply an even layer so it appears that the paper original has that color. Often the waxes are used for highlights, so I'm pleased that I can use it for coloring even surfaces as well.

Splash 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 "Splash".



I've made a lot splashes for this card, in the sense of lots of water and creating splashes with Infusions. First I created bubbles with the Bubble stencil and Texture Paste. Then I applied Opal Magic Green Gold paint with the Silicone Brush. This makes the surface resistant. This enabled me to make many extra splashes.
 

With the Blending tool I applied Black Soot Distress Paint through the stencil. Then I doodled with White Gelly Roll pen to pull the dandelions more into the foreground. With Black Soot Distress Crayon I gave them some dimension.
