Snow Much Thanks Distress Oxide Background | Simon Says Stamp

Hey everyone, today I have a card that I made using the stamp set from Simon Says Stamps January card kit.

1.jpg

I created the background by blending Distress Oxide inks onto Bristol Smooth paper. I used the colors Black Soot, Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled glass.

I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes on the background with my MISTI tool in embossing ink. First I embossed with Alabaster white embossing powder and then I embossed more snowflakes with Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder.

I stamped the snowman on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink and then colored it in with Copic markers. I cut him out using my Scan N Cut. I stamped the small thanks sentiment on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and embossed it in white. I free-hand cut out the little snowy hill out of some white cardstock and blended a little Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink along the bottom edge to give it some shading.

I adhered the background to an A2 size card base with my ATG gun. Next I glued down the snowy hill and the snowman on top of that. I popped up the tiny Thanks sentiment with some foam tape. I went over the sentiment strip and some of the snowman with my Wink of Stella glitter brush. I also added some highlights to the snowman with a white gel pen. To finish up the card I added some sequins.

Today I did some no-line coloring with an awesome stamp set from Colorado Craft Company.

I stamped the image on Slate gray cardstock with embossing ink. I then colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.

I blended around the edges of the gray cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to create a vignette. I embossed the sentiment with Alabaster white embossing powder from Brutus Monroe.

Shaker Card with Shrink Film Snowmen | Brutus Monroe Blog Hop

Hey everyone! I wanted to share with you this shaker card I created using some little shrink film snowmen.

1.jpg

To create the snowmen I used some Brutus Monroe shrink film. It is a very interesting product. The stamp set that I used is the Snow Friends stamp set. I stamped the snowmen on the shrink film with Raven Detail Ink and then fussy cut them out. The ink stays wet on the shrink film until heated so you need to be careful not to smudge the stamping while fussy cutting. Once cut out, I heated up each snowman with my heat tool. Not only does this set the ink, it also shrinks the shrink film down creating this cute little plastic snowman charm. It is a really great technique for making jewelry, but today I am making a card with it!

3.jpg

Once I had my three snowman all shrunk down I colored them in with Copic markers. I found that I got better results doing the coloring after shrinking, though it could work before with other mediums.

Before creating my shaker I wanted to stamp my sentiment. I used a stamp from the Brutus Monroe stamp set Jingle All The Way. I stamped it with an embossing ink onto and A2 size piece of white cardstock. I embossed it with Gilded embossing powder which is my favorite gold embossing powder.

2.jpg

To make my shaker I took the panel with my sentiment and cut three square windows along with top with a die. I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the windows with my ATG gun. For the background of my shaker I painted a piece of watercolor paper with Frosted Cranberry Aqua Pigment paint. This is one of the metallic Aqua Pigment paints so the background is nice and sparkly. I added foam tape around each of my three shaker windows and placed my shaker pieces inside. I used some red half pearls for the shaker pieces. I took the red background I created and closed up my shaker areas. Next I took the whole shaker panel and glued it to a card base.

To finish up the card, I took the three shrink film snowmen and glued them onto the shaker windows. I found that they stuck really well using my ATG gun for the adhesive.

Snowman Slider Card | Brutus Monroe

Today I created a fun slider card using some stamps from Brutus Monroe.

1.jpg

I started by taping a 6x6 piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board. Taping it down helps to prevent warping while I paint. I used Aqua Pigment paints from Brutus Monroe to do the painting. I used the colors Tinsel Blue, Blue Green, Turquoise, Blue, Blue Violet, and Black. I didn’t wash my brush between colors, and because the Tinsel Blue is metallic all of the other paint got really sparkly. After finishing the painting I used a white watercolor paint to add stars. I got a paintbrush really saturated with paint and tapped it over background to create the stars. Once the paint was dry I removed the tape and trimmed the panel down.

3.jpg

Next I took the Snow Friends stamp set from Brutus Monroe and stamped a bunch of the snowflakes on the background with embossing ink. I embossed them with Alabaster, Sterling, and Rainbow Sparkle embossing powders.

2.jpg

I stamped one of the snowmen from the stamp set onto some Bristol Smooth paper with Raven Detail Ink. I colored the snowman in with Aqua Pigment paints and fussy cut it out. I cut a curve out of a piece of white cardstock to create a hill for my background. I painted the cardstock with Pearl Aqua Pigment paint so that it would be nice a glittery. I used a slider die from Lawn Fawn to cut a slider area along the edge of the hill. Check out the video to see how the slider was put together! Once the slider was made I glued my snowman to the penny so that it slides down the hill.

To finish up the card I took my background panel and adhered it to a 6x6 card base. I used another stamp set from Brutus Monroe to add a sentiment to the inside of the card which says “Let it Snow.”

Snowy Card with Aqua Pigments | Brutus Monroe

Hey everyone! I am guest designing over on the Brutus Monroe blog today! I created a sparkly Christmas card featuring some of their products!

3.jpg

I started by taping a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board. I blended together three colors of Aqua Pigment watercolors to make a vibrant background. This is my very first time using a liquid watercolor and I loved it! I used the colors Turquoise, Blue, and Blue Violet. Once the paint was completely dry I taped a snowflake stencil from Brutus Monroe over the background. I went over the stencil with some Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste. I removed the stencil while the paste was still wet and cleaned it immediately. I set aside the background to dry while I worked on the next part.

2.jpg

Next I stamped a snowman from the Snow Friends stamp set. I stamped it using my MISTI tool on some Bristol Smooth paper with Raven ink from Brutus Monroe. I painted the snowman with Aqua Pigment paints and then cut it out with a circle die.

1.jpg

I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Friends stamp set on some Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with Versmark ink. I embossed it with Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder and then cut the paper into a strip.

4.jpg

To put the card together I took an A2 size card base and popped up my background panel with foam tape. Next I popped up the sentiment and the snowman circle. To finish up the card I added some highlights and details to the snowman with a white gel pen. I also added some snow to the background of the circle with the gel pen. Finally, I went over the snowman and the snow with a Wink of Stella glitter pen.
