Monochrome Halloween 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 "Monochrome".


For this monochrome card I chose to make it in Halloween style again and chose orange for my color. First I applied a layer of Clear Gesso and then with the Swirly Florals stencil I added some texture with blackened Texture Paste. When the Texture Paste was dry I applied the first layer of orange in with Distress Ink Ripe Permisson. And added more orange with Orange County Infusions and Nuvo Shimmer Powder Storm Cloud.

Christmas Stamp It 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 "Stamp it". Because it's STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp we're also showcasing one of the products from this release.


Another Christmas card from me, it's actually much too early for me to make Christmas cards at this time. But I got the Inside Christmas Greeting stamp from the STAMPtember release, so that's the reason LOL. I started with the Simon Says Stamp Deco Diamonds background stamp and Gold Gmbossing Powder. With Nuvo Expanding Mousse Worn Linen I've given it a metallic layer, and colored it in a sort of pattern with Nuvo Shimmer Powder Golden Sparkle.

Shadow Skull Halloween 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 "Using a clear element". And we're also showcasing Visible Image products. So if you have any, we would love to see them in your project.


The Skull Shadow mask was my starting point for this card. First I made the background brown with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. With Sticky Grid I attached my card to my surface, and then I also stuck down the mask with washi tape. Without the Sticky Grid it would have been a lot harder to keep everything in place and get a nice and clean result from the mask.

STAMPtember Christmas card

Hi everyone,

It's September and that means it's STAMPtember® at Simon Says Stamp! This is the 10th anniversary, and there are lots of extra's and fun things planned during this month. And today is the STAMPtember® Blog Party! There are lots of gorgeous projects to see that have used products from this amazing STAMPtember® release. So go check it out after reading this post of course :).

And check the special offer below, you can have you're own exclusie 10th Anniversary STAMPtember Apron for FREE! Please read all the details about it below. It's a limited offer!


From the STAMPtember® release I got the Inside Christmas Greetings stamp set to play with. This stamp set has all kind of sentiments that are perfect for inside but also on a Christmas card. I started with the background like I almost always do. I used Opal Magic Paint Blue-Gold and Green-Gold and started building up color. With Infusions and Distress Oxide Broken China.


The way the Infusions looked made me think of Christmas trees, so I stamped the Tree Line stamp on top of it with Archival Ink Jet Black. And I felt there was snow in the air, and I used the Snowflakes stencil with Worn Linen Nuvo Expanding Mousse.

 

On top of a strip of Simple Stories Basic paper I stamped the Inside Christmas Greetings sentiment with VersaMark Ink and used Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder. Around the edges I applied Distress Ink Ground Espresso and on top of that I added Bonding Powder that I heated and rubbed Driftwood foil on it.

S is for Scary card

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 "S is for...".


Of course I had to come up with an S that had to do with Halloween. And fortunately that wasn't so difficult. I started with the background using the Halloween Collage Paper, and I applied Clear Gesso over it. That works better to apply color like Infusions and Nuvo Shimmer Powder. But first I used different stamps from the Undertaker to fill in the white spaces. Then I added some texture with the Bubble stencil and Texture Paste that I made black with Distress Paint Black Soot.

Halloween ATC 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 "ATC's" short for Artist Trading Cards.


Yes, it's Halloween season! My favorite topic for creating projects and this week I made an ATC. I cut this out of thin corrugated cardboard, because I was going to make it dimensionally. I started with Clear Gessso, to ensure that the colors mix even more than normal. For the first layer of colors I used Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Black Soot. I was surprised that Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge became yellowish. I really wanted to go for a deep orange with a black background, and that's why I added Infusies Orange County and Nuvo Shimmer Powder Storm Cloud.

Midsummer Blues 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 "Midsummer Blues".


For this card I used a lot of shades of blue, such as Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China and Faded Jeans and Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers, Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans. And of course a little brown for the vintage look, and it had to be Distress Ink Ground Espresso, my favorite brown of all time. Although this technique takes more time to give color to a complete background, I like it so much more because you are more in control than with the Distress Sprays. I don't know how to handle sprays properly, I guess. My spraying results are not pretty at all.
