Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! It is the 14th of the month, which means it is the big reveal of the latest Simon Says Stamp monthly card kit! I’ve created two cards today, each that feature a fun embellishment mousse technique.

This latest card kit is bursting with a warm Spring theme, which ironically is completely opposite of the weather here in Maine! I just got another 19 inches of snow today, on top of the couple feet I already had gotten this past week. Let’s just say, Spring isn’t happening anytime soon up here, haha! :)

As for the kit, you get a variety of fun products, including: the Some Bunny stamp set, a cute flower stencil, Nuvo Embellishment Mousse jars, some Ranger tools, Echo Park pattern papers and a few other fun products! I think my favorite items included in the kit are the Embellishment Mousse jars (you get Peony Pink, Pure Platinum and Aquamarine). I have some of these mousses and have loved using them on projects. So when I saw they were part of this month’s kit, I just had to use them!

However, I wanted to share a couple of techniques that are not quite the “obvious” ways to use the mousses. While you can apply the Embellishment Mousse onto paper through a stencil using a palette knife (much like Texture/Embossing Pastes), the Embellishment Mousse has some unique properties. This allows you to expand the use of it beyond the “norm”! In today’s video I will be creating both a watercolor effect and an ombre-blend effect using just a couple simple tools and the mousses.



I recently shared a video tutorial in which I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to create a shimmer spray.

So be sure to check out the videos below! I have one video that is a walk through of the new card kit. The second video shows how I made these two cards and demonstrates both techniques mentioned above. If you enjoy, please give the videos a thumbs up and subscribe to either my blog (see sidebar), or my YouTube channel so that you don’t miss any future tutorials!

And did you know that Simon has a collection of galleries on their blog for each of their card kits? Crafters (you included!) can access and link up to the galleries with their own projects created with the Simon Says Stamp card kits, or use the galleries as inspiration!

Thanks for visiting with me today and I will be seeing you again very soon!

    My daughter and I watch your posts together every time a new one is up! We’ve learned so much from you! We’ve scrap booked together for years and just started card making around Thanks Giving last yr as I’ve developed an immune disorder and can’t be “out” anymore to be with my family doing things and getting pics. We are both disabled now so we have a very limited income, so we share a SSS card kit. We were so excited for the Nuvo Mousse but had NO IDEA how to use anything like it. Since learning and be inspired by your videos we’ve become texture paste addicts! We’ve got 2 well used stencils now! We’ve had so much fun and its really added something to my life. Just because I can’t spend much time with my family because of my health doesn’t mean that I can’t send them a “happy card” to let them know I’m thinking of them even when I’m not on the phone! Thank you Nina! Hope you have an amazing day as you’re an amazing young lady! Sincerely, Angie & Sasha

      I understand! My daughter and I share a kit. We take turns choosing which papers & card stock we want then add in some white card stock so we each can make cards. We also share papers that have sentiments etc. It would be so wonderful for us to be able to have our own but this works. Maybe you can find someone to go halvies with you too. That would be great! I sure hope something works out. I understand the want…
