Icy 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 "Icy Photo Inspiration". And we are also showcasing PaperArtsy products. If you have any, we love to see them used in your project, if not, that's no problem.



This icy inspiration is made by my lovely teammate Maura. It's full of all thing icy, so let your imagination run free and join us!


From my sweet team member Marzena I got the inspiration to use Embossing Powder in combination with Infusions. But first I gave the background some color with Nuvo Mousse Aquamarine and Pure Platinum. Then I made a pattern with the diamond stamp of the STAMPtember 2017 Tim Holtz set using the MISTI. It only works with a stamp that can be repeated. It was a bit tricky to get it all right, but I managed to make a nice pattern, and because I stamped with VersaMark and didn't see where I've had stamped, I already used Embossing Powder over it.

 

For the next step I've used PaperArtsy Infusions A Bit Jaded. First layer wasn't really to my liking and I picked up the most part with a paper towel before it was dry. Then for the second layer I've used a Silicone Brush, but that didn't really give the desired result either. Again, before it was dry, I dabbed it with a paper towel. This give it a nice soft effect. Finally I got some Infusions on the top and bottom and that gave the pretty result that I was looking for. For a fun touch I've colored a few diamonds to create more depth and interest.

Star Shine card with 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 "Star Light Star Bright".



This time not a Christmas card but a birthday card. It has become an edgy card despite the star theme. I started with mixing Texture Paste and Nuvo Mousse Black Ash together, and used it with the Slate stencil. With Nuvo Mousse Aquamarine and a blending tool I've given the background some color and made it a little water resistant. This in order to work with Infusions.

 

With 3 different colors of Infusions, A Bit Jaded, Green Man and In The Navy I've created the background to give it a kind of industrial look. Together with the slate that I've given more depth with Nuvo Mousse Black Ash and with Metallique Wax Bronze Age, and the colors, I think it's a nice and grungy whole. Then it was time for the main piece of this project, the Dimensional Star, which I cut out of Copper Metallic cardstock. I sanded the edges and distressed it with Nuvo Mousse Black Ash and with Metallique Wax Bronze Age. It's difficult to glue this star down, in the end it worked pretty well with double-sided tape.
