Deco Diamonds 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 "Inspired by a Song".



This card is inspired by the stamp Deco Diamonds of the new release of Simon Says Stamp: Sending Sunshine. It immediately reminded me of Diamonds by Rihanna. First I used the Deco Diamonds stamp on Distress Heavystock and applied after using VersaMark some White Embossing Powder.

 

Then I started with 3 different colors of Infusions. I often use Infusions one color at a time, but this time I've applied Blackcurrant, Green Man and Slime all together. With a mister (my Ditress Sprayer is broken...boohoo) I mixed the colors and with a Heat Tool I let it all dry. I repeated this twice until I had reached the right color. In the background I've made some music references, like the Music to My Ears stamp and the numbers 1234, as in a quadruple.

 

I really liked the Paper Dolls when they were released, but I was to incorperate them in my projects, and now I can't seem to not use them in my projects, LOL! The Deco Diamonds have something retro, so a perfect match with this cute vintage boy.

Stencil it 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 "Stencil it".


Stencils are one of my favorite tools, so I used 3 of my favorite stencils for this card. I started with the Schoolhouse stencil and Distress Paint Black Soot. Then my second favorite stencil is Tiles. I used this one with Texture Paste. When it was dry I applied a layer of Opal Magic Rose-Gold with a silicone brush. Love the way that looks and make the black turn into gold.

 

With Infusions (Sunset Beach, Lemoncello and Are You Cerise) I added some color. The effect that Infusions gives with Opal Magic Paint is really cool. But I wanted to add some more contrast so I used Black Knight Infusions for that. That also immediately gives it a more dramatic look. The black letters of the Schoolhouse stencil had disappeared a bit in the background and therefore it was a fun idea to use the smaller size of Schoolhouse stencil with also Distress Paint Black Soot and also in the same spot.
