Take Note-pad 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 Note".


The Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit is ideal to make a notepad for this challenge. I've used a few other products out of my own stash. I started with the Dot Matrix embossing folder from the kit and apply it with a good layer of Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum with a blending tool. 

 

Then I used the Daniel Smith Brown Iron Oxide from the sample sheet together with water brush from the kit. But I was more in the mood for shades of blue, so I used A Bit Jaded and Green Man Infusions together with Black Knight. Infusions work really amazingly with the embossed background covered with Nuvo Mousse. The Simon Says Stamp Craft Tacky Glue is really fabulous, this will be my new go to glue! It's super!

Love is in the Air 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 "Love is in the Air". We are also showcasing Carabelle products.


It's almost Valentine's Day and that's way the theme love is in the air this week. I've chosen to make a wedding card. I started with one of the 2 Flowers stencils from Carabelle. I made a stamp out of thick foam by making it hot with a heat tool and pressing the stencil into it when the foam is still warm. It doesn't work as well with a stencil as with like an embossing folder, but I also think the imperfection is very nice. I used 4 different Distress Oxide and  to always stamp in the same spot I attached the Heavystock onto the foam with some tape.

 

Then I also used the stencils as a stamp, the Distress Oxides are perfect for this. I used the Simon Says Stamp Drawn Hearts stencil, which I mixed with Texture Paste and Prima Sparkle paint in Iris Potion, for some texture. The beauty is that the sparkle remains and shines throught the paste.
