Tear up Christmas 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 "Tear it Up".



For this card I used nothing torn as part of the card, but as a tool for a technique. I torn a piece of paper and used that as a stencil to make layers of snow. For this I used Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum together with a Blending Tool. Then I went over with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce. The Nuvo Mousse acts as a resist to the Distress Oxide.

 

With the Winter Wonderland die, I cut out two deer and colored them with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo. In addition, I used the snow as a stencil with Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum. The Nuvo Mousse is my new favorite product. I ordered a number of colors, so I think I will use them much more often in the future.

Stitched Christmas 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 "It's a Stitch Up".


The time for making Christmas cards has arrived, I've made this a fairly simple card. I used the Dashing Deer die as my focal point of the card. The Distress Oxides work perfect for coloring the deer, I've used Vintage Photo and Antique Linen.

 

I chose faux stitching by using the Stitched Rectangles die as a frame. In the background I stamped the diamond stamp with the set of the STAMPtember 2017 from Tim Holtz. With a MISTI or another stamping tool it really works very well to stamp a full pattern. But I always do a trail run to measure the pattern out.
