Questa è la seconda settimana per la nostra Designer Spotlight di Febbraio, Linda Kunsmann QUI il suo splendido blog!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thanks for all of your fabulous entries into the ‘Make Your Own Background’ Challenge and we hope you will join in this week too!
This week we are challenging you to make your own Handmade Flowers. You can of course use die cut flowers, stamped and cut flowers, or maybe you have other ideas! Whatever you make we will be looking forward to seeing your beautiful blooms!
This is the second week for our Designer Spotlight of February, Linda Kunsmann HERE her gorgeous blog!
Spring is coming and Simon Says Stamp has created a new stunning collection, New beginning, HERE you can see the whole range of products!



Questa settimana mi sono adattata anch'io alla primavera in arrivo e ho creato due progetti molto diversi tra loro, come potete vedere. Per entrambi due mini step by step!

This week I adapted myself to the spring and I created two different projects, as you can see. For both two mini step by step!


La preparazione dello sfondo della card e della carta che serve per ritagliare i fiori prevede l'uso dei Distress oxides.  Per i fiori ho usato Neenah cardstock solar white, ho tamponato i Distress oxides sul tappetino, li ho spruzzati con l'acqua e  ho asciugato i fogli. Nella foto vedete ritagliati alcune delle migliaia di fiori che ho preparato per farne due! Non sono proprio la mia specialità i fiori fatti a mano!

In this project I used Distress oxides. For the flowers I used Neenah cardstock solar white, I stamped Distress oxides on the mat, I sprayed them with water, and I dried heat tool. In the picture you  can see  some of the thousands of flowers that I made ! Really,  handmade flowers aren't my specialty !


Per lo sfondo ho usato un timbro di Simon Says Stamp che amo particolarmente, Abstract  triangles. L'ho timbrato con Versamark e polevere clear poi l'ho colorato con gli Oxides.

For the background of the card I used  Simon Says Stamp Abstract triangles. I stamped with Versamark and embossing powder clear then I colored with Oxides.


Una volta tagliati i fiori con la fustella super classica Tattered florals di Tim Holtz, li ho bagnati con l'acqua, arrotolati e lasciati asciugare. Nella foto sopra vedete il risultato. Una volta composto il fiore ho sporcato i bordi con Aged Mahogany Distress ink pad. La cosa più divertente è che quando vai a spruzzare i fiori tagliati, il risultato del colore cambia ancora perchè gli Oxides reagiscono all'acqua! Divertente e imprevedibile!

I cut flowers with  classic die, Tattered florals  bi Sizzix/Tim Holtz.  I wet them with water, rolled up and left to dry. In the picture above you see the result. I have  arranged the flower and I used Aged Mahogany Distress ink pad on the edges. The funniest thing is that when you go to spray  flowers, the color changes again because the Oxides react to water! Fun and fanciful ( I can use fanciful????? I'm waiting for your  grammar suggestions! Thank you!)


Per il centro dei fiori ho usato un mix di Alcohol inks e le perle di Tim Holtz.

For the center of the flowers I used a mix of Alcohol inks and Baubles by Tim Holtz.






Quest'anno come vi avevo già annunciato sarà l'anno della sperimentazione e delle miscelazioni. In questa card ho provato a mixare i prodotti di Simon says Stamp e adattarli al mio stile, anche il sentiment Thankful è una fustella a marchio Simon.

This year, as I had already announced, will be the year of experimentation and mixing. In this card I tried to mix Simon says Stamp products  and adapt them  to my style, even  the sentiment, Thankful,  is a  Simon's  wafer die.

Secondo lavoro, diversissimo e very vintage! Mi sono ispirata ai sacchetti per i semi che ho visto su Pinterest e ho provato a darne una mia interpretazione. Potete usarli per i vostri regali!

Second work, very different and very vintage! I was inspired by the bags for the seeds I saw on Pinterest and I tried to give my interpretation. You can use them  for some of yours little  gifts!




Dire che questi timbri di Tim Holtz /Stampers Anonymous sono perfetti è riduttivo, sono spettacolari!

To say that these stamps from Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous are perfect is reductive, they are spectacular!




Per timbrare ho usato  Simon Says Stamp Premium Dye Ink Pad BLACK e per colorare gli acquerelli Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi. Ve l'ho detto che questo è l'anno degli esperimenti!
Immancabili i Distress oxides che sto provando in vari modi. In questo lavoro ho colorato il Crinkle Ribbon di Tim Holtz. Questi colori una volta asciugati lasciano il nastro molto opaco è l'effetto è molto bello e decisamente più rustico di quello ottenuto con i Distress sprays.

I used to stamp them,  Simon Says Stamp Premium Dye Ink Pad BLACK and  Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi to color them. I told you that this is the year of the experiments!
 Distress oxides are always in my works because  I am trying them in various ways. In this work I used them to color Crinkle Ribbon . These colors,  once dried,  leave very opaque effect, very nice and definitely more rustic than that obtained with Distress sprays.




La carta che ho usato come base per i timbri è carta di libri , ed essendo sottile l'ho incollata a un normale foglio per la stampante, in modo da renderla più consistente.

As the basis for the stamps I used some sheets from  vintage books, very thin. I glued  it to a normal sheet for the printer, so as to make them  more thick.


Nel retro ho usato un altro set di Stampers Anonymous che mi sembra si adatti particolarmente: On the farm.

In the back I used  Stampers Anonymous set On the farm,  I think is particularly suitable!





Spero vi siano piaciuti entrambi i progetti!!!
Hope you like both projects!
