Oh My Deer!

Is it Monday again? Fortunately yes and we come with the new 
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which theme this week is


So add any kind of metal embellishment to your project and share it with us!
Remember you can become a random winner of $50 and spend it at

Here is my card with three metallic details: stars, a tocken and metallic paint. 
I was so lost in working on the project that I completely forgot to make pics
of the process! Below you can read some points of how I made the card.

1. Emboss the background with Tim Holtz STAMPtember tree rings.
2. Give some color using Distres Oxide Inks (antique linen, walnut stain).
3. Mark the edges with Distress Ink (groung espresso).
4. Mix Metallique Blackberry Prima paint with water and spritz the card.

1. Color the Sizzix Frame Ornate #2 with Distress Inks (peeled paint, 
ground espresso) and spray with water leaving lighter drops randomly.
2. Touch the frame with Tsukineko Embossing Ink and apply 
Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder, heat the frame.
(observe below how the waterdrops aren't covered with powder! Amazing!) 

1. Stamp the trees with embossing ink. 
2. Apply WOW Embossing Glitter Cloud9 powder, heat the trees.
3. Color the background with Distress Oxide inks (salty ocean, peeled paint) 
4. Spray with water leaving waterdrops looking like snow. 

1. Stamp the deers with embossing ink.
2. Apply Simon Says Stamp Black Embossing Powder, heat and let cool off.
3. Fussy-cut the deers (which is not easy but absolutely worth it).
4. Adhere the deers with 3D dots.

Shimmer and Shine

If it's Monday it's also time for SSS Monday Challenge!
This week it's all about 


As always there is a $50 voucher waiting for one random winner 
who could spend it in the greatest Simon Says Stamp Store

My card is two color and very shiny project.
On the close-ups below you can see the shine of all of the details.

First I took my cardstock and covered it with a thin layer of Gesso.
Then I usd my favorite SSS Large Dots stencil with Grit paste.
I covered all the surface with Opal Magic Violet-Gold acrylic paint.
The second layer of color were Distress Oxide Inks: pink and purple.
I also colored the left side of all my dots with Hickory Smoke Crayon. 
Finally I applied the Platinum Nuvo Mousse on the dots and edges.

I cut out the Sizzix Ornate Frame and colored with silver spray 
as well as the butterflies. I placed the frame with 3D dots. 
I added a circle frame just for fun and some pieces of the circle 
in the bottom and the corner. 
Finally I placed the Paper Dolls girls in the frame and black 
and white Botanical  flowers in the bottom.
