Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit – Warm Your Heart

Here is another card using the Simon Says Stamp November card kit.  I did substitute the card base with a Bazzill Peanut Fudge card stock as I didn’t like any of the colors I had left.  The design is based on Sketch Saturday #336 by Cathy.  This is a very versatile sketch.  I added some Lawn Fawn bling and the focal image is simply from the design paper.

Watercolor Leaf – Thanks

Playing with my new Kuretake watercolor set based on an idea from Kathy Racoosin.  I used the Tim Holtz Maple leaf stamped in Gathered Twigs then watercolored with oranges, greens, and browns.  I stamped the background leaves with markers in the same shades.  The tag is Papertrey Ink and the card base is Bazzill Peanut Fudge.

Thanks Watercolor Leaf

Cover Plate Negative Technique



A Plus


This weeks Make it Monday was a technique using the “insides” of your cover plate dies. Laurie Wilson does a video that shows you how to get these lined up perfectly using…..of all things…..Glad Press n seal wrap.  It WORKS!!!  The first card is the is simply Neenah Solar White over some Club Scrap card stock. The Wood focal point is painted with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica in Black Orchid.  The second card uses Dylusions sprays over the Simon Says Stamp “Love My Alpha” Stencil.  I hand drew the lines in the starburst using my copic 0.3 marker and the focal point A+ is also using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical’s in Bells of Ireland and backed with black paper.

I’m home on vacation today just playing at my craft desk.  This card was made with digital image and sentiment by Doodle Pantry colored with Copics (R24, R27, R29, R59, R89, C2, C4, C6) on a background of black card stock treated with silver gelato and black paint then embossed with a Tim Holtz folder.  The “ground” is also black card stock, but treated with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain to look smooth. Silver embellishment on pole is metallic thread.
