Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

It's Wednesday, which means I get to show you another card I've made for my turn in the Designer Spotlight at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week the challenge is all about KRAFT. I kind of love kraft cardstock more than any one person really should. I'd use it on EVERY card if I could get away with it. Wait..... maybe I should just go for it.

I inked up a happy snowman stamp from Stampendous (really - don't you just want to hug him?!) and colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers and pencils:

Snowman: IG1, IG2 + 120, 119, 117, 112, 02, 01
Hat and Scarf: CG2, CG3, CG4 + 43, 44, 45; BT2, BT4, BT5 + 63, 64, 65
Nose: 21, 203

After I colored I used paper stumps and the Spectrum Noir blending fluid to give him a softer feel.

I used an IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress to make his poofy bauble at the end of his hat, and sprayed iRESISTable colored texture spray (again, Wedding Dress) to create the snowstorm around him.

The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Labels & coordinating dies.

Christmas Love Letters

Sent with Love

I'm all about using stamps intended for one thing for a totally different purpose..... makes me feel like I'm getting my money's worth (and being super creative!). This sweet little Bebunni 'Sent with Love' stamp is actually part of the 'Everyday' collection, but I figured If a paired him with the 'Postbox and robin' die and a festive sentiment, he could totally be delivering Christmas letter, right?

I colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers:

Bunny: IG4, IG2 IG1, FS2, FS8, CR3
Envelope: EB2, EB1

I made a quick mask for him, laid it on top, and then sprayed Fireworks Sprays on the background. And added Shaved Ice to make it sparkle. And that paper? Yeah, I hoard it. SO fun for winter cards!

You're Bootiful

It's Wednesday, which means I get to show you another card I've made for my turn in the Designer Spotlight at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week the challenge is all about a fantastic Halloweenish color combo. I seem to be short on colored cardstock (I'm loading my cart as you read this!!) so I decided to take a different approach!

I used my SUPER FUN new eBrush to tint the white cardstock a lavender color. I used LV1 and LV2, and made it slighty darker at the top... and used a more grainy stroke, for interest. I also used OR2 to spray that fun wooden frame I found at Michael's.

The Paper Smooches sentiment is stamped in IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Memento LUXE (Tuxedo Black) and the ghost is stamped in Memento (Gray Flannel). I didn't have the right size googly eyes for the ghost, so I put them in the sentiment instead!
