Layered 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 "Layer It".

As it’s the first Monday of the month we are showcasing a brand/company. This week we are all using some fabulous products from Tim Holtz. You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.



For this card I've applied several layers, the more the better. The first layer was Typeset Collage Paper. I love to use it, it adds so much to the background. Then some old book paper, Urban Layers and washi tape. To move it into the background I applied a layer of White Gesso, and because I don't like the grit of it, I put a layer of Clear Gesso on top. The advantage of these two layers is that when drying with a heat tool it will bubble and that gives great texture.

 

For the last texture layer I used Texture Paste and Deco Arch stencil. I made the Texture Paste black with Distress Paint Black Soot. After it dried I started using some colors. First, Nuvo Shimmer Powder Cherry Bomb, and Infusions Are You Cherise. Then Nuvo Shimmer Powder Solar Flare and Liquid Acrylics True Yellow.
I made the edges intense dark with Distress Paint Black Soot.

Spring Butterfly Bricks 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 "Easter/Spring".



Tthis weekend it will be Easter, can you believe it? Hopefully the warm spring weather will follow soon, because I am really done with the dark cold days. I wanted to use the Brickwork 3D embossing folder for this card. I have had this folder for a while and I saw great results everywhere, but I was unable to make something beautiful with it. Recently I saw this tutorial from Stacy Hutchinson which I followed for the most part with some tweaks and additions here and there. Thank you Stacy for the amazing tutorial!

 

After I finished with the Brickwork, I started with the amazing Perspective butterfly. That's one of my favorite stamps and amazing for coloring. I'm not a star with coloring, but this stamp makes that very easy. I made the bricks very grungy and I thought it was cool to work with pastel colors and I chose Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Cracked Pistachio and Speckled Egg.
