SISC35: Oh Scrap!

It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge!!! I know what you might be thinking…”But Alison, you’re in Ward 2…and this is Ward 1’s week!” Yes. That’s true. But I wasn’t able to play last week because of my Mother in Law passing away. And even though it has been pretty damn tough to get back into a groove…I really wanted to join the rest of the Groovy Gurlz this week. Pun intended. Ok. So it wasn’t very funny…but cut me some slack!

This week’s challenge is to “create a project with only your leftover bits and strips of paper and bitty pieces of ribbon that you just haven’t been able to part with!  Any scraps will do!”   That’s super easy for me, because that’s what I do 90% of the time anyway!


I used Nicholette…one of my all time fave images from StampInsanity. And all I added besides paper was some Stickles, and a single teeny flower rhinestone on her fabulous top hat.


I love the colors. Super bright and cheery. A real pick me up…which is just what I need right now!


See the dimension of the Stickles and the rhinestone? Looking at the way I colored Nicholette is reminding me of how badly I need to dye my hair! Won’t be pink this time though…I’m going for teal. But I digress…

Please be sure to visit the Groovy Gurlz of Ward 1! Posted on my sidebar. They definitely have some fabulous creations to share with you! Have an inspiring day!

Christmas Package

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.

1. Tape Christmas Package stencil to Dare Devil cardstock. Tape off the bow so that you don't get paste on it. Paste the box with your Palette Knife and Glossy White Embossing Paste. Remove stencil to wash. While the paste is still wet, sprinkle Lime Micro Glitter from the Hal…

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
