Merry December 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 "Warm Winter Wishes".


Christmas is getting closer and I still haven't got all my Christmas cards ready. I was in the mood for a green Christmas card. I grabbed some Christmas green with gray Distress Inks and got started. I went for an old technique called the "Wrinkle Free Distress" with Pine Needles, Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough and Hickory Smoke. My paper was certainly not wrinkle free after that... So I ran it through the Vagabond with a few sheets of paper and that really helps with the wrinkles.

Blue Butterfly Brutus 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! 'B is for...' is this weeks challenge. We're also showcasing Brutus Monroe Products.

Actually it's time for making Christmas cards, and I'm behind with those, but there are also need birthday cards to be made. This week I made a Blue Butterfly Brutus Birthday card. I started with the Brutus Butterfly Garden Paper Pad. It's not actually a Pad, it's a Paper Pack. I already thought that this could possibly be used with a laminating machine (or a Minc) because it looked like it had been printed black with toner, and that was the case. I used blue foil to make the black butterflies blue ones.

Steampunk Birthday card with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

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



This week I was in the mood for a bit of steampunk, but with a twist. I started with the Mechanics 3D Embossing Folder and gave it a metallic effect with Nuvo Mousse Seaspray Green and Black Ash by applying it with a blending tool. Then a more rusty brown tint mixed in by using Metallique Wax Bronze Age. What does that wax smell nice!

Thanks card with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

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


The month of Thanksgiving has arrived, even though it is mainly celebrated in the US, think about what you are grateful for is a beautiful thought. I made a thanks card and I started by applying Crackle Texture Paste with the Spaced Dots stencil. After the Crackle Paste was dry I applied a layer of Opal Magic Green-Gold Paint.

Take Flight 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 "Take Flight".


Halloween is almost here, it's now only a few days away! So time for the last Halloween card of the season. As the flying part of my card I used the Batground stencil. But I first started making the background. I used Distress Oxide Fired Brick with Distress Oxide and Ink Black Soot to make the background look like a dark creepy night. A night full of creepiness.
