Simon Says: Not A Card





Hello Monday my friends! I am slowly working my way back into crafting following my eye surgery, I still struggle with details, reading and computer work, so I will probably keep things simple for awhile.  This week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is - NOT A CARD. So, I've made a tag which would look lovely on a gift box. 

I have really loved seeing the beautiful creations by the design team these past two months, and the amazing makes from our guest designers Cassie Lynch and Ann Chuang!!

HAPPY DAY TAG


I started with some ink smooshing on the white tag with Simon's Sunbeam yellow ink. Then, I stenciled over that with the Sweets pink ink.


I think this has a spring/summer feel to it.


I layered the die cut pieces together from Studio Light, added words, some bling, and hand dyed ribbon using the same inks. 


Now it's your turn to create something that is not a card and join us this week. Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp are offering a $25 shopping voucher to one participant drawn at random.

Grafix: Flights of Fancy Journal

 


Hello Creative friends! I'm over at Grafix today sharing my fantasy flora and fauna art journal. Hope you enjoy it HERE!

Feminine




Hello Monday my friends! Welcome back to this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - FEMININE.  I headed to my art journal with some wonderful Klimt designs from Stamperia. 

DIVINE FEMININE


I began by scraping Umber and Gilt paint down the pages with an old key card.


Next, I stenciled several areas on each page with Simon's Square
Dance stencil and Sedona paint. I like to lightly dab the paint with a sponge.


I added more color with the Lapis paint and Simon's Deco Weave stencil.


I decided to smudge in some Ocean paint using my fingers. 


Then, I added in strips of the Stamperia papers, and added some die cuts.


The valuable and simple in life makes you create art


I overlaid a few areas with some stamped script.

Details...

Simon Says: Add Some Green



Hello Monday my friends! Welcome back to this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - ADD SOME GREEN. Green has me thinking of spring and St. Patrick's Day, and is my favorite color. I headed to my art journal again this week. We are also spotlighting the fabulous products from AALL & Create, so if you have any, we would love to see them. 

Please join me in giving a warm welcome to our guest designer this month - Deborah Emmons of DesigningDiva_73! Looking forward to a creative month with you Deborah.

FOLIAGE

I began with a bit of stamping and ink smooshing on watercolor paper.


On my journal page, I added in strips of green patterned papers.


Then, blended paints over the papers.


Next up, a bit of stenciling...


Then a layer of green paint rubbed in.


A bit more stenciling with blue this time.


Then, it was just a matter of fussy cutting, a bit more stamping and stenciling, paint and some green washi tape. Well, I guess I added more than "some" green, but why not?!


Now it's your turn. Come join the fun this week, use your AALL & Create if you have it. Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp are offering a $25 voucher to shop at their fabulous store!
