Hexagon Element Honeycomb | Simon's New Rest & Refresh Release

Hey guys! Today I have a card featuring the new Hexagon Element die from Simon’s Rest and Refresh release.

1.jpg

First I taped a piece of Canson Watercolor paper to a board. I painted a really organic background using some Prima watercolors. I trimmed the background to 4x5.25 and popped it up on an A2 card base.

3.jpg

I die cut the Hexagon Element shape three times out of Neenah cardstock and adhered them together to make a dimensional piece. I then glued that piece to my card. To give the look of a honeycomb I filled each of the hexagons with Glossy Accents.

For the sentiment I first die cut the word “honey” using the Archie Jr alphabet die set from Simon Says Stamp out of slate cardstock. For the second part of the sentiment I used the Tiny Words die set and stamp the sentiment with Gina K’s Jet Black Amalgam ink on Neenah cardstock. I glued the letters with Gina K Connect Glue and the smaller sentiment with foam tape.

Next I went over the letters with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. I also went over the sentiment strip with Wink of Stella.

To finish up the card I added some sequins from the Heaven Sent sequin mix from Lucy’s Cards.

Clean and Simple Card Design | Simon's New Release

Hey guys! Today I am sharing a card I made using a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp’s brand new release!

1.jpg

I stamped the dog from the Chillin Frenchies stamp set onto Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K’s Jet Black Amalgam ink. I then painted him using my Arteza watercolor markers and fussy cut him out with a Scan N Cut.

2.jpg

To create the background I stamped some of the smaller images from the set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Fog ink. I stamped a sentiment right on top of that background with black ink. Next I embossed a smaller sentiment onto Schoolhouse Red cardstock from SSS with white embossing powder. I cut that small sentiment into a strip and popped it up under the larger sentiment.

3.jpg

I used foam tape to pop up the dog on the background and then popped up that whole panel onto an A2 size card base.

4.jpg

For the finishing touched I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the dog and a Copic to add details around his nose.

1.jpg

I stamped the large image in the stamp set onto Canson watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I then painted the image using Prima watercolors. After painting I added in some details using colored pencils.

3.jpg

I trimmed the painted image down using my Tonic Trimmer. I then cut a frame out of black cardstock using my Hero Arts nested rectangles die set. I glued the frame on the painted panel.

2.jpg

Next I took a piece of black cardstock and taped the Diagonal Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp over it. I blended over the stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. This creates a nice, subtle background for my card. I adhered the panel to an A2 size card base.

I took the painted panel and popped it up on the card with foam tape. I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card and instead stamped one inside.

Watercolor Galaxy and Triangle Stencil | Simon Says Stamp

Hello friends! Today I created a card using the Gansai Tambi watercolors and some products from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I taped a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a galaxy background. I also used Raven ink from Brutus Monroe to blend along the edges to create a vignette. I added white watercolor paint to an acrylic block and flicked it onto my paper to make the stars.

3.JPG

I taped down the Triangle Blast stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the background and went over it with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. Once it was dry I trimmed it to 4 x 5.25 and popped it up on an A2 size card base with foam tape.

2.jpg

For the sentiment I picked out the Lucky to Know You die set from Simon Says Stamp and I cut it out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock three times. I glued the three sentiments together using Gina K Connect glue to create a dimentional sentiment. I then glued that to the center of my card.

For the finishing touches I added a few Raindrop embellishments from Lucy’s Cards.

Easy Watercolor Background Shaker Cards | Brutus Monroe

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a couple of really fun birthday shaker cards for the Brutus Monroe blog hop!

1.jpg

I started out by creating some colorful watercolor backgrounds using Aqua Pigment paints. I used a technique to make these backgrounds that is so super easy to do, I highly recommend checking out the video so that you can see how it is done!

2.jpg

Once the background were dry I used a large circle die to cut them into two circles. I then took the same die as well as a slightly smaller circle die to make two frames out of white cardstock. I also cut two circles out of some acetate. I glued the acetate circles to the frames to create my shaker windows.

3.JPG

I added some doubled up foam tape around the frame to create my shaker area. I then filled the shaker with Pastel Paradise sequins from Lucy’s Cards as well as clear Micro Pearls from Brutus Monroe. I closed the shakers up with the watercolor backgrounds.

4.JPG

I created two 5 x 5 card bases and glued some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to the front. I then glued my shaker circles to the middle of both of the cards.

5.jpg

For the sentiments I used a stamp from the Super Sentimental stamp set from Brutus Monroe and embossed them with Alabaster embossing powder on some black cardstock. I popped the sentiments up onto the centers of both cards and went over them with Wink of Stella glitter.
