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.

Thankful 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 "Thanks/Thanksgiving". And this week we are showcasing Indigo Blu products, we love to see them used in your project if you have them. No worries if you don't have any.



For this Thankful card I didn't went for the standard autumn colors. But did I use the feathers that you could link to the thanksgiving turkey... :). I started with applying texture using Nuvo Mousse Aquamarine. What a beautiful color that is! Then I gave the background some color by using Distress Oxide Frayed Burlap, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers. Because of the texture of the Mousse, I needed some extra water to spread the color around more.

 

As mentioned, we  are showcasing Indigo Blu products this week, so I've used the French Script stamp together with VersaMark and Perfect Pearls Mint. The Pointed Feathers die unfortunately is retired, but Simon Says Stamp has many more feather dies. What's so awesome about the Thankful cut template is that there's a shadow variant in it.
