12 tags of 2014 - November

Hi everyone,

 
What a super stunning tag Tim made for this month! He is a genius and once again with new techniques. A true November tag!


Unfortunately I don't have all the stuff to try all the techniques he did for this tag, but I gave it my own spin on it and that is always fun to do too!



I've discovered  he Wink of Stella Glitter Pen and I think it's totally awesome! I'll definitely use this more often! So beautiful that glitter and so easy to apply. With this pen, I've tried to mimic the shimmer of the foil sheets.





Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Over the moon

Hi everyone,

A new Monday means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week is all about the moon. Perhaps you have amazing space themed stamps or you have a different idea while thinking of the moon. Share it with us! We love to see what you came up with.


I've altered the title of the challenge a bit, but the moon is still the focal point of my card, as you can see... I started with making the background blue with Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. These colors I use rarely. But perfect for a nighty sky! The School house stencil with Black Soot gave it a sort of intergalactic feel, along with the Cherish stamp with some Archival Jet Black Ink.



I made a template for the moon with the greatest of Sized Circles. I used a palette knife to apply Copper Crackle Texture Paste and waited over night to dry. Because the paste is very liquid, a halo appeared around the moon, love that! But unfortunately it also warped the paper a lot when it dried. It was a tricky task to adhere the warped base onto the card.

Ornamental

Hi everyone,

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog has a new challenge: Ornaments! It's almost the season, so maybe you're inspired to make some Christmas ornaments or Christmas rosettes. But maybe you want to have some fun with ornaments stamps. Let us know what inspired you!

This ornamental stamp is a member of my collection for a while now, and I only used it once or twice. Perfect for this challenge! I started with a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. I made a pattern with it. Then I stamped it seven times on masking tape and cut them out. Placed them over the stamped images to ensure that the inside of the frames retain white.

 


Purple was the color that came to mind thinking of the background, so I created a background with Seedless Preserves. I made the edges a bit darker and the center of the card a lot lighter to adhence the center frame. To make it even more a focal point, I've applied a layer of Crackle Paint. The sentiment from Simon Says Stamp fits perfectly under the ornament, I think it was speciallys made for it!

CC3C #14

Hi everyone,

Today I want to share the tag that I made for CC3C with you! What a fun technique this is (I know, I say this every time, but it's true)! I used the last of my Crackle paint, so I have to keep in mind to get some more. This week is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique!


I'm loving the fall colors more and more! What a beautiful color palette. The real fall weather has finally struck in the Netherlands. Which inspired me for this tag.

Good 'ol days

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "the good 'ol days". Are you making a project inspired by the past, or maybe you have a nice old stamp that you wanna use again.




Personally, I like a lot of time worn techniques as well as grunge and Industrial effects. That reminded me of the tag that Tim Holtz had made for January 2014. That gave me the idea to use some of those techniques for an art journal page and with the same colors Tim used. So cool!


I used a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock as base and gave it a bit of color with Pumice Stone. I build some layers along the edges of the various washi tape with lots of stamps and stencils. The golden splashes are the Bronzer Color Shine. Gives just a bit extra, I think.

I'm loving this flat sort of clean art journal. I know that may sound silly, but most of my art journals are so exploded and pages sticking together that it's nice to have a clean looking art journal. I know I'm a bit mad, LOL!
