My Other Creations: Journal Page using Inky Antics' Big Houses and Tiny Houses Stamps

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is, "Warm Winter Wishes."  I live where there's A LOT of snow.  It gets cold and very...white.  I stay warm in my soul by thinking about my home and family and other things that give me hope and happiness.  I conveyed this with a journal page that I created with some of the new stamps I designed for Inky Antics.


The background contains some trellis die-cut shapes, some stamping, and a lot of color blending with Prima Oil Pastels and paint.  I sketched a plant that I fussy-cut and glued down, then I surrounded it with house stamping.

Here are the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:

My Other Creations: Re-purposed Notebooks using Dina Wakley's Giant Funky Silhouettes

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is "B is for...."  I went with two brightly-colored books made with a boy stencil cut into different shapes.


I started with a collage that I made using Dina Wakley's Giant Funky Silhouette stencil, some patterned paper, stamping, more stenciling and lots of paint.

Then I got brave and got out the scissors and cut up my collage!

I liked how cutting this piece up gave me several smaller pieces of imagery to work with.  I added two of the panels to my notebooks.



These two notebooks came from one tall notebook (a Prima Traveler's Journal) that I cut in half.  Guess I was going all sorts of crazy with the scissors on this project!

Here are the supplies I used which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:

My Cards and Tags: Christmas Gift Card Holders using My Favorite Things' Gift Card Window and Gift Card Pouches

"Gift It" is this week's theme for our Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  I made a trio of envelopes and gift card holders.
  
I made the envelopes with We R Memory Keepers' Envelope Punch Board, which is a classic tool.  The "Best Gift Ever" sentiment is courtesy of Concord & 9th's Holiday Cheer stamp set.  Then when each card is opened, there's a space cut out that holds a gift card with a plastic cover over it (thanks to My Favorite Things' Gift Card Window and Frame die set and Gift Card Pouches).

The fun trees are cut with a die set by Penny Black called, Modern Xmas Tree.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
