Steampunk 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 "Steampunk".



As promised I'm still in Halloween mode, and this time I made a Steampunk style Halloween card. I started with the Professor stamp, and stamped it on Heavystock and masked him with Masking tape. For the colors I used Distress Ink Ripe Persimmon, Rusty Hinge, Black Soot and Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke.

Creepy Mirror card

Hi everyone,

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


This week I'm also in the Halloween mood, I expect this will remain until Halloween, just so you know ;). I started with Distress Inks and Oxides, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick, Candied Apple and Black Soot, to build up the layeres for the background. I darkened the edges with Black Soot. What a difference that makes, love it!

 

For the Baroque Frame I used Mirror Sheets. To make the mirror look older I used Mushroom Alcohol Ink, love that vintage color, it ages things magically. I also used it on the Frame itself, just like Metallique Wax Bronze Age and Distress Crayon Black Soot. The girl in the mirror is a Halloween Paper Doll, which I gave a mask from the Curiosities Stickerbook. I made the eyes white with a White Gelly Roll Pen. Reminds me of the kids from the Umbrella Academy. I gave her a red dress with Distress Embossing Glaze Fired Brick.

Pirate Hot Air Balloon 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 "Use Your Favorite Stamp".



We are showcasing the latest STAMPtember® products and although you probably don’t have these supplies yet we would like you to use Simon’s Exclusive Products if you have them. This isn’t necessary to join in with the challenge but we would appreciate it.


For this STAMPtember release I got the Etched Laurel Leaves die and no stamps, so I used my favorite Halloween Stamp set from Tim Holtz, the Mini Halloween # 3 set. Since this set came out I have used it every year! My other favorite stamp is the Hot Air Balloon from the Remnant stamp set, but unfortunately Simon Says Stamp no longer has it in the assortment. But they have plenty of other nice Hot Air Balloon items.

Halloween Doodle 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 "Oodles of Doodles".


This was a real challenge for me, because I really can't draw and that also applies of doodling. But I've made the superlative of oodles or doodles for my doing. I started with Collage Paper Typeset, which I applied with Soft Matte Gel. I've also used Washi Tape and old book paper to build up layers. I applied a coat of White Gesso and Clear Gesso and I heat both coats with a heat tool to get those bubbles, these give great texture.

 

After the gesso was dry and bubbly, I started applying color with Liquid Acrylics Ink Black and Tiger Orange. In between I used the Spider Web die set. And for the orange part, I also added Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder Burnt Orange and Infusions Orange County. That texture of the heated bubbly gesso is really amazing, especially with translucent mediums.

 

For the oodles or doodles (for me it's oodles and oodles of doodles) I used the White Gelly Roll on the Spider Web and I used a black Zig pen for the Halloween Paper Doll. I first colored this with Distress Crayon Rusty Hinge. Here you can clearly see that I have no experience with doodling and that I still have lots to learn, hahaha.
