Lindy’s Stamp Gang Color Challenge February 2015

I have been buying Lindy’s Stamp Gang products for over 10 years now and I love them as much today as I did when I got my first “moon shadows”.  This months color scheme for the Lindy’s February 2015 Color Challenge is very vibrant so instead of doing full sprays on my card, I spattered.   I stenciled the heart using 3D molding paste mixed with Black Orchid Black magical mica (I think this is discontinued as I couldn’t find in the store).  This isn’t the black that was called for in the challenge, but it was the only color I didn’t have on hand out of the 5 chosen, so I improvised.  I then splattered Caribbean Blue  Flat Fabio, Bougainvillea Fuchsia Starburst, Pretty in Pink Pink Starburst, and Frozen Jack Frost making sure to dry in between each  layer. That helps so the colors don’t muddy.   I also created my own stencil mask using the Simon Says Stamp “Clustered Leaf Die”.  I based my design on the Freshly Made sketch below.

Here is the color palette:

Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit

I’ve finally gotten back to my November Simon Says Stamp card kit.  The stamp is Tim Holtz mini blueprints colored with copic markers.  The snowflake is from Lawn Fawn’s Mixed Sequins from last year.  The sentiment is Paper Smooches.

Simon Says Stamp September Kit, Card #4

Back to School

This months kit is way outside my style, but just goes to show you that it’s still fun!  I used the Retro Sketch challenge as a design start and added a piece of vellum because I didn’t want to cover up the “school or book” theme.  I’m not thrilled with the embossing powder, which is in Verdigris.  The flag is a My Favorite Things die, and the “note paper” die is an old Stampin’ Up punch.
