From the Heart 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 weeks challenge is
"Not a Card".


I was in the mood for some crackles, because lately I've been getting better with getting nice crackles. So I started with a Heavystock tag and the Lattice stencil with the Opal Crackle Texture Paste. When it was dry I applied a layer of Clear Gesso on top of the whole tag. With Nuvo Shimmer Powders I started to add color. From light to dark. First with Fallen Leaves, then Atlantis Burst and lastly Green Parade. But I also used Infusions A Bit Jaded.

Animal Magic 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 "Animal Magic". This month Tim Holz is the featured brand of the month over on the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog and we are all showcasing some of his fabulous products this week!


For this challenge I've channeled my inner grungy vibes. I wanted to make a masculine card but with butterflies. Therefor I used darker colors. I started with the background, using the Mixed Media # 6 dies to cut out the letters. Then place it back with Texture Paste letters with the Schoolhouse stencil. While that was drying I continued with some stamp work. The large butterfly from Perspective stamp set and some bugs from the Entomology stamp set. I cut out the bug with the coordinating die set.

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Life on the Ocean Waves".


Recently I've been completely into molds, and this week is no different. For the background I first applied bubbles with the Bubble stencil and Texture Paste. After a layer of Clear Gesso I started applying blue colors, first with Distress Oxides and Inks. Then with Infusions and Nuvo Shimmer Powder.

Paper Artsy 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're also showcasing Paper Artsy products, so if you have any, lets use them!


Infusions are my favorite stains, I've made so many projects with them and when I saw that we are showcasing Paper Artsy products, it was a no brainer for me. First I used Expanding Mousse (thanks Marzena!) Together with the Stars stencil and a layer of Clear Gesso on top. To apply the base layer of color I used Distress Paint Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade together with Opal Magical paint Yellow Pink and Rose Gold.

Stars and Stripes 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 "Stars and Stripes".


Since it is almost 4th of July and the theme is stars and stripes, I went for it. For the background I've used the Crate stencil and Crackle Texture Paste. Don't know what happened, but the last few projects I use Crackle mediums in I get nice crackles... strange, I normally have such ugly crackles! Okay, lets move on...While the Crackle was drying, I gave the resin parts a layer of Gesso.

Professor Gadget 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".


When I saw the Professor stamp set I immediately wanted it, but it took a while before I finally had it. I had the idea to make him in Professor Gadget, with a propelor from his hat. What a perfect way of transport. Loved the cartoon series Inspector Gadget when I was a kid. But our professor is slightly better with the gadgets, since he invented them ;).

Ancient Greece 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 "Vacation".

As you know, I love to go on city trips, and then I often visit cities with ancient history. I have only been to Greece once, but the museums I often visit have beautiful ancient Greek statues from. These molds from Prima Marketing remind me of those statues and what a great way to put my two hobbies together in one project.
