Safe Travels 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 "Transport it".



This card I made for a friend to wish safe travels. I remembered the Just Landed stamp set of Kaisercraft. What a fun set and perfect for this challenge. I started with texture paste and the Swiss Dots stencil. When it was dry, I applied a layer of Opal Magic Blue-Gold paint. Then with Mod Podge which is diluted with water and Infusions A Bit Jaded I have given the background this lovely color. It's one of my favorite colors.
 


Using the MISTI I stamped the Just Landed stamps with the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. A few of the stamps I stamped on Vellum with Versamark ink and I melted the Black Embossing Powder with my heat tool. The edges needed a little something and with a black watercolor pencil and a water brush I darkened them.

Make a Wish 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 Tool". What's yours?


I just couldn't choose only one favorite tool. That is why I used my top 3 of favorites tools to make this card. The Vagabond, the MISTI and a heat tool. First I've embossed the background with the Simon Says Stamp Large Morrocan stencil. With Opal Magic Rose Gold paint and Dylusions Paint Lemon Zest I've made the first layers of color.

 

I'm still in love with the Infusions and this time I've only used Golden Sands. The embossing was a bit faded into the colors, and by putting Distress Crayon with my fingers in some places the embossing became more visible again.

Young at Heart 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 "Young at Heart".


I've not necessarily made a Valentine's day card. It can also be used as a birthday card or an anniversary. Because we are showcasing Simon Says Stamp exclusive products this week, I used the Drawn Hearts stencil and the Best Day Ever die from the Hey Love collection. With the Drawn Hearts stencil and Texture Paste I made a first layer. When it was dry, I placed on the top and bottom edges some Grit-Paste.
 

After that was completely dry, I got it all covered with Opal Magic Rose Gold paint. This time I first applied a layer of Mod Podge, which is mixed with water before I added the Infusions. I used Are You Cerise, Sunset Beach and Black Knight. The Stitched Oval cutting template I also gave a coat of Opal Magic Rose Gold paint. Then I used the Best Day Ever die, which I doodled a bit on the make it stand out even more.

Pets Corner 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 "Pets Corner". Show of your pets, or projects that are inspired of your pets.


Unfortunately I don't have pets. I work too much so I'm not able to give enough attention. But I would like a little dog, and this Crazy Dog would be perfect. I started with a layer of Grit-Paste for the background of the card. While it was drying I continued coloring the Crazy Dog. The main color I used was Pumice Stone, a brownish gray color. The eyes I've given some dimension with Glossy Accents.
 

When the Grit-Paste was dry I applied in some places Opal Magic Blue-Gold paint with a Mixed Media Silicone Brush. I then grabbed for my new addiction: Infusions .... I started with Royal Blood with Mod Pogde that I diluted with water. Then a little The Sage, and finally around the edges Black Knight. This I've dried the Heat Tool. When it was all dry I've Royal Blood and Black Knight and sprayed that with water. That makes it even more intense.

Spread Your Wings Birthday 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 "Spread Your Wings".



Oh yes, I'm still under the spell of Infusions. For the background I used Crackle Paste, it's a bit older and was somewhat dry, but a little bit of water and mix it well does wonders. And luckily it hasn't any effect on the crackle. I used it with the Simon Says Stamp Large Dots stencil. After everything was dry I applied Opal Magic Blue Gold paint with the Mixed Media Brush, but I didn't cover everything and didn't apply it evenly.

 

With different colors Infusions and a mixture of Mod Podge and water, I gave the background more color. After everything was dry I applied some more Infusions and made other layers with sprayer water on it. The Magic Opal paint gives such a cool effect, even if you go over it with Mod Pogde and Infusions.

 

Unfortunately I had troubles with my camera again... No fun! But luckily only the last few minutes are missing, and in that time I applied the Droplets with Tacky Glue and stamped the sentiment and adhered it to my card.
