Hello, my lovely crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. I hope you all had fun with last week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, our theme is "GRUNGE IT UP" - simply create a distressed or grungy look on your project. Be sure to check our guest designer Stacy's beautiful creation for this week's challenge.

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz black ink pad to distress the edges of the tag and decorated with Sizzix Heart and Gear die cut embellishments.

On this size 8 tag, I first applied the modeling paste using a palette knife to create the texture. Then I colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Paint and distressed the edges with black ink pad. The Gold embossing powder was sprayed and heated on the tag. And I stamped some random text with black ink pad and Tim Holtz rubber stamp.

I die cut the heart, gear and arrow embellishments using Tim Holtz die and Big Shot, colored them using Distress Paints and distress them with Distress Ink Pad. These embellishments were also heat embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat tool.

I layered these embellishments and attached them on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue and Adhesive Tabs. Some Idea-Ology Remnant Rubs were randomly and Small Talk Stickers were added on the tag. Some Gesso and water mixture was splatted on the tag as the final touch. 

I really enjoyed creating the grungy effect on this project and hope it inspired you to create with us. Looking forward to seeing what you make!

Mixed Media Card Love Note

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Love Note Card Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Tim Holtz Prima Flowers 1


Hello, my lovely blog friends, I hope you all had a great weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we challenge you to create with the theme "TAKE NOTE" Simply create a notebook, alter a notebook, or use notepaper, etc. And don't forget to check our guest design this month Stacy for her gorgeous creation.

I created a mixed media card with a note that was stamped using Tim Holtz Cling Stamp Mini Motivation and die cut using Simon Says Stamp Notebook Edges Wafer Die.

To start this project, I trimmed the white card stock and made this 4.25" X 5.5" card base. On a piece of watercolor paper that was trimmed slightly smaller than the card base, I randomly colored with Distress Spray Stain with various shades and rubbed on some text and image using Idea-Ology Elements Remnants Rubs. The watercolor paper was pasted on the card base. The card base was distressed the edges using Simon Says Stamp ink pad and an Art Dauber and Faber Castell Brush Pen.

I colored a piece of white card stock with the same Distress Spray Stain, then stamped it using Tim Holtz Mini Motivation Stamp then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. This paper was die cut with Simon Says Stamp Notebook Edges wafer Die, and pasted on the card layered with a piece of cork using Tombow Adhesive Tabs.

I added some beautiful Prima Flowers, sequins and a sentiment from Tim Holtz stickers on the card to finish this project. 

I hope this card inspired you to create with us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I am looking forward to seeing your creation!
