Recycle Birthday 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 "Recycle".


Thought recycling was gonna be a difficult one, but if I look at all the things I've collected and have in my stash, I have more than I realized. For example, I always use old corrugated cardboard for my dimensional cards, and I've just bought a new jacket and saved the labels. In addition, I also had leftover metal parts of some furniture. When I saw that all the things where round, I thought that was a fun extra challenge for this card.

Thinking of You 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 "Thinking of You".


For this card I started with black and white washi tape in lots of different styles. I used the Dapper and Purveyor stamp sets together with the Stamp Platform to fill up some of the empty spots. I've applied a layer of Clear Gesso over it. After the gesso was dry I used a layer of Opal Magic Paint Rose Gold, this gave the black a golden glow.

 

At first I intended a monochrome look, but decided to add some color with Metallique Paints. And I used the Metallique Golden Moss Paint for the first time and what an amazing color that is. I applied it with a brush and spread it with a sprayer, and later again with a brush. Then I used the Metallique Paint Steampunk Copper and Rustic Brown in the same way. I also applied a spritz of Nuvo Sparkle Spray, but this one has silver glitter in it and didn't really match with all the gold.

 

I painted the Triplex die black, but later I thought I wanted to add some texture, and I used Nuvo Expanding Mousse (thanks Marzena!) And heated it well. After another layer of black paint I applied Metallique Wax Bronze Age and Antique Brilliance Wax Lucky Emerald. The shadow I made with a black Big Brush.

Thanks Stencil 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 "Thanks/Thanksgiving". And because it's the beginning of the month we're showcasing a brand, and this month it's AALL & Create. So if you have any of their products, it would be fabulous if use them in your project.


This month it's time for Thanksgiving. We don't celebrate this holiday in the Netherlands, so I made a Thanks card instead. For the background I first stamped with the Halftone stamp and then applied a layer of Clear Gesso on top of it. When it was dry I used Texture Paste which I made black with Distress Paint Black Soot. I applied it with the AALL & Create stencil Cracked Walls.

Halloween 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 "Art Journaling".


It's a shame that it's already Halloween this week, and that I've to wait almost a year for the next one :(. We don't celebrate Halloween here in the Netherlands, so that's why I'm sorry it's already this week, otherwise I had a nice party to look forward too... Anyway, back to the challenge, art journaling. I made a spread and of course in orange, as it's my color for this year's Halloween. You probably didn't expect anything else from me, I bet;). I first applied the Manuscript stencil texture with Texture Paste, which I colored black with Distress Paint Black Soot.

Hi everyone,

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


My favorite Halloween color this season is orange as you might have noticed;) and of course I used it again for this card. I wanted to work with the Prima Moulds again and make a dimensional card. I first started with the background and applied a layer of Clear Gesso. I used the Manuscript stencil with Texture Paste which I darkened with Distress Paint Black Soot.

Pink 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 "All Things Pink".


This month is the breast cancer awareness month, a super important month. I'm still in the Halloween mood, so I made combination and made a pink Halloween card. I started with the ZigZag stencil, which I used with Texture Paste that I colored black with Distress Paint Black Soot. When it was dry, I went over it with Opal Magic Rose-Gold Paint. This made the zigzag pretty golden.

Halloween Fall 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 "Autumn/Fall". And as it's the first Monday of the month, we're showcasing Tim Holtz products. So if you have any, we'd love to see them used in your project(s)!


What is more fall than Halloween? And I'm still in the Halloween mood and apparently also in the color orange, LOL! Although orange is also really an autumn color, so perfect for this challenge. I started with Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade and Distress Inks Ripe Persimmon and Ground Espresso. Then I also added Distress Ink Black Soot. With a blending tool I gave the lighter areas some color with Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon and made the edges a bit darker with Ground Espresso.
