Trio of Color

Welcome, Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge is new this week with a great theme.  We want to see how you combine a color 3 ways!  This can be done with paper, dies, inks, embellishments...the possibilities are endless.
I used my Custom Blend ink pads for my trio of color.  Then I added some paper and ribbon for more color.  


I went straight for my Bird Silhouette die.  I love the gradient look of the custom blend ink pad.


I am so addicted to these Tiny Tattered Florals.  There is soooo much you can create with these.  Do you have yours yet? 


I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the inked up bird.  I mean...it's a pretty good size.  Then I thought to just stamp this awesome number stamp from the Perspective set.  I just LOVE IT!


The Handwritten Thinlits are my favorite.  I love sentiments and these take the cake.  This "Moments" in Core paper from the Journey set is  perfect.


Aren't these wee tracks the cutest stencil.  A perfect way to add a layer of texture.


Another element of color is the Scribbles and Splat die.  I do love to layer and these dies make it possible.


We hope you share with us your "trio of color" for a chance to win a $50 spending spree.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
