Not A Card & Yay You! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

  products on our cards this week.

Today's card features so many Tim Holtz products I'm hoping I don't miss listing any.

I began with a Tim Holtz Ide-ology Notebook Worn Binder & creating some background papers to cover it with. The pink strip of paper has had various pink Distress Inks blended over it & then I stamped over it with Simon Says Stamps Old Letter cling stamp & Vintage Photo Distress Ink. My base layer is Neenah Desert Storm and I have stenciled some large circles and stars using Simon Says Stamps Scattered Stars & Extra Large Dots stencils with Snowflake Paste topped with Icicle Crackle Paste & Distress Glitter& I also ink blended white ink over the paper in places.

My image is Stamping Bellas Mouse Bouquet which I have stamped using my Stazon Jet Black ink pad & I have water coloured using Distress Inks.

As you can see I have enjoyed a bit of distressing on this binder & used my snip scissors to distress the paper edges & then added gesso & crackle paste to the edges. 

Other supplies used -

I am going to use my little binder to store postal receipts from my Etsy shop so printed a strip with my shop logos on to keep the binder edge nice and simple & have just distressed the binders spine using my white ink pad.

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a $25 gift voucher for the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store.

I also have a card to share today featuring a new stamp called Arched Greens from todays Simon Says Stamp brand new 
release. As I am working a 13 hour shift today & the release wasn't live when I scheduled my post I am unable to grab the direct link to the gorgeous stamp but the Yay You link should take you to the whole of the fabulous new release.

This card is a little different for me but I'm actually pleased with how it's turned out.
I stamped my image using Bundled Sage Distress Ink & then gradually added more colour & shades to the leaves using my watercolour paint pans.
The next time I use this stamp I'm going to pop out the arch & use it separately without the rest of the background for a different look, so the beauty is it's two stamps in one!
Thanks for stopping by & stay safe!
