Freezing Cold




Time for a new Monday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp! This lovely photo is our inspiration for this week and we can't wait to see your take on it! One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store.



For my card I used the Blossom Field embossing folder and the Spellbinders Winter Welcome Sled dies. The background was done with Strathmore watercolor paper , Perfect Pearls Blue Hydrangea paint wash, Stickles Star Dust and Waterfall glitter glues to accent. Nuvo Apple Green Crystal Drops  for center of poinsettia. For the flower and greenery I used White Glitter card stock and colored it with various Copic markers.

fun foil



 
This week we are having Fun With Foil. One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift voucher. Hope you can play along with your foils. Gilding foil flakes are a fun option too!



For my Fun With Foil card I used the Flourishing Bloom Plate wafer die with glimmer foil. I added the Beautiful sentiment die and the Layered Hummingbird die that was popped up on an action wobble. The gold matting and strip for the die cut are by Concord & 9th.

Thanks Thanksgiving



 

It is time for another Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp! Today our theme is Thanks or Thanksgiving. We are all so looking forward to seeing what you create for this season of thanks. One lucky winner will receive a $25.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store.



For my Thanksgiving card I used the Sunflower Fields stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. So much fun to color with the Tombow Dual Brush markers on Strathmore Watercolor paper.  I inked the distressed edges with Old Paper and Vintage Photo distress inks from Tim Holtz.

Dyan Reaveley






 I am making some art journal pages featuring the Ranger Dylusions line from Dyan Reaveley for the Monday Simon Says Challenge as a guest designer for November. Yay!!

I love Dyan's vibrant, fun artwork! This page uses After Midnight ink spray and it is such a gorgeous, rich deep blue/royal purple blend that I am in love with. The "Puddy Cat" stamp set was used here along with "Leaf Me Be" and the Dyalog "Doodle It" stencil for the flowers. All products available over at the Simon Says Stamp store.


This page features "Night At The Opera" stamp set along with the large "Quilt" stencil.
Hope you can play along this week, I can't wait to see what you create! One lucky winner will receive a $25.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store.

Daisy Days


 Pretty new 3D embossing folder included in the Simon Says Stamp October card kit. Not sure who the designer paper is from. Highlighted with some craft inks and white gel pen to color.

Halloween Rosettes


 For Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge for home decor. These Halloween pumpkin and cat rosettes will be hung up in the windows. I didn't get much of a chance to decorate this year since we went on vacation. May do a few pumpkins but the major outdoor stuff is out this year since it has not stopped raining for long since we've been back.

Batty For You


 Mostly a copy of the idea sheet in the Hero Arts Halloween card kit with a few minor changes. I added Nuvo glow in the dark drops to the card sides and the cat eyes.
