Party Invite 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 "Party!". This challege lasts for two weeks!


The party season is almost here and a little later is my birthday and like every year I made my invitations. The years are flying by. Something too fast for my liking. Anyway, let me tell you how I made this invitation. I started with a base layer of Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum. This gives the surface a metallic shimmer, but it is also partially water-resistant. The thicker the layer, the more it becomes water-resistant.

 

The mousse is almost immediately dry after you apply it. So on with the next layer. After I masked off a part of the card, I used the Rings Doily stencil with Texture Paste. The next step was to apply color and I did that with Infusions Sunset Beach, Are You Cerise? and Lemoncello. The first layer was with some Mod Podge mixed with water and then only with water and Infusions.

 

I stamped the Block Lower Foam Stamps with the Stamp Platform and aligned the letters with a ruler. I temporarily replaced the second i with the l because of the spacing between the letters. Foam stamps and VersaMark do not seem to get along  very well, or I have used too little ink, but with the black embossing powder it gives a very cool distressed look.

Christmas Miss You 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 "Christmas/Winter Holidays".


This Christmas card was made for my sweet friend who recently moved to Australia. I already miss her immensely and the Simon Says Stamp Script Miss You die of the DieCember release was a perfect match to let her know that. First I gave the background some color with Nuvo Mousse in Aquamarine and Pure Platinum, which I applied with the Mini Ink Blending Tool. I played on the top of the card with Infusions A bit Jaded and on the bottom with Iced Spruce in Distress Oxide and Ink.

 

When everything was dry I've made a mix of Transparent Gloss Texture Paste and Mica Powder Pale Silver and applied it through the Dot Fade stencil. To really make them stand out as rounded dots, I heated it with the heat tool while it was still drying.

  

The Tree Line die cut I've given some color using Distress Ink Forest Moss, Ground Espresso, and Distress Oxide Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain. With some mist from the Distress Sprayer the ink reacted and that gives a super cool effect. Yes and then the Flamingo ...! You will think, why is there a flamingo on this Christmas card ...? As I've already told you, my sweet friend and her husband moved to Australia and it's there now about 28 degrees Celsius, not really winter temperatures, plus she likes flamingos very much, so I liked to incorporate it into her Christmas card.
