2020 Year in Colour!

 


Hi Everyone! Here is my 2020 year in colour. As we step through the doorway to 2021 and close the door ( and lock it and throw away the 🔑 😉) I hope that together we continue to connect to others in whatever way we can. You just never know what that phone call, text, joke or card means to someone. Best wishes to all for the New Year! 🥂🍾 @yearofcolour #yearofcolour  #cardmaking #papercrafting #cardmakers  #cardmakingsupplies #cardmaker #handmadecards

Just Because for Simon Says Stamp's Love You release

  




Hi Everyone! The Simon Says Stamp Love You release is now live! For these cards I used the new Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Just Because die! 


First I took a piece of Yupo paper and squeezed some Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution all over it. Then squeezed a few drops of the Tim Holtz Cobalt alcohol ink and used my blower to move the ink around the Yupo paper. Then I added a few drops of the Tim Holtz Guilded Alloy and used my blower again to move it around on my Yupo paper.  I was having so much fun ( as I always do when playing with my alcohol inks) that I made a second panel! 

Then I used the new Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Just Because die and cut that out three times out of white cardstock. I used Simon Says Stamp vellum to cut out the shadow.  I adhered them with my Gina K connect glue and then added a Studio Katia gem to dot the I.   I adhered the entire sentiment to my panel and that's it!




For my second card I used the new Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Just Because die and cut that out three times out of white cardstock. I used my second Yupo panel to cut out the shadow.  I adhered them with my Gina K connect glue.  Then I splattered some Gansai Tambi  gold paint over  my Nenah 110# cardstock panel. I then took my stacked up cardstock Just Because and Yupo shadow and adhered  it  all to a 110# Neenah card base and then added some Studio Katia Gems. 
 

 



For my third card I used the new Simon Says Stamp + CZ Design Just Because die and cut that out of my Yupo panel. Then I cut the shadow three times out of white cardstock and I adhered them with my Gina K connect glue.  I cut a panel out of Concord & 9th's Midnight cardstock and then splattered some Gansai Tambi  gold paint on it. I then took my stacked up cardstock Just Because and Yupo shadow and adhered  it  all to a 110# Neenah card base and then added some Studio Katia Gems.

Three Room Studio Saturday Challenge: Miss You



Welcome to the Three Room Studio Saturday Challenge!

 This week's challenge is Miss you!


I used my Copic Markers to colour the lady in the Yay stamp set and die cut her out.  I then took a piece of Arches cold pressed paper and wet it with water. I scribbled my Turquoise Karin Marker on my Tim Holtz glass mat and then picked it up with my Escoda paint brush. 



Once dry I diecut my panel with a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to my card base made of Neenah 110# paper. I stamped the I Miss You from the Simple Sentiments stamp set  three times and then added some gems. I popped the Yay lady up with some foam tape and that's it! 


Please take a look at some of our fellow designer creations for today's challenge...

Sneaky Kitties for Simon Says Stamp DIECEMBER release!

 





Hi Everyone! The Simon Says Stamp Diecember release is live! Today I used the new Simon Says Stamp Sneaky Kitties die to make three masks and place them on my Bristol smooth paper. Then I ink blended some Concord & 9th ink ( Dove, Peacock & Eggplant) over my masks. Then I splattered some Gansai Tambi paint over the ink blended panel. Then I removed the masks to reveal the white kitties!. I then took my sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp Deco Borders and Corners stamp set and stamped them with Gina K Obsidian ink.  I  adhered  the panel to a 110# Neenah card base and then added some Studio Katia Gems.

#thedailymarker30day  colouring challenge by @kathyrac. This challenge is only 11 days. If you’ve been on the fence about joining why not try now? Let me know in the comments if you’ll give the challenge a try! Here I coloured Picket Fence Studios Lily Bouquet stamp set including the background with my copic markers.

Grateful Fall Foliage Card for Simon Says Stamp's Holly Jolly Release

     









Hi Everyone! The Simon Says Stamp Holly Jolly release is live! Today I used the new Simon Says Stamp Fall Foliage embossing folder ( YES this is an impression from an embossing folder! ) to emboss a panel of Yupo paper. Then I selected some Ranger Alcohol ink and began to paint the colours on the leaves. I cut a layering panel and the Grateful sentiment from Simon Says Stamp dark chocolate card stock and adhered them together and added some Studio Katia Gems.

Mega Wrap Stripes

    






Hi Everyone! Here is a card that I made using Simon Says Stamp Mega Wrap Stripes stencil. I took a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 100# paper and taped the stencil to it.  I used my Concord & 9th Peacock ink to blend through the stencil. Then I cut the Simon Says Stamp You Are Loved die out of black cardstock and the shadow from vellum. I glued them together and then to the card. Then I sprayed some Avery Elle Clear Shimmer spray and added some Studio Katia Gems.
