Some Fun Info!

I have a couple of things to tell you about today. First, I am cordially inviting you to the very first Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop. It’s tomorrow!!!  We have lots of amazing talent over there and we’d love to show it off a bit! Won’t you please join us? You can start the hop from any point, be it here at my blog, the S&S blog, or any of the other members. We will all have a full hop list posted on our blogs. It’s going to be awesome!!!

 

The next thing I’m excited to share with you is a new Challenge Blog called Friends Having Fun. It was started by my awesome friend Tonya (the mastermind behind Twilight Tuesday). I’m really excited because it’s going to be a great blog. But, I’ll let Tonya fill you in on the deets. Here’s what she wrote:

Let’s meet our team leaders:

Alison – Color Challenge (week 1)

Each team is looking for 3-4 friends (design team members) who would like to have fun!

Deets:

  • 3 Month Term

  • Post 1 time a month

  • Can apply for as many teams as you’d like but can only be accepted to 2 max at a time. Please indicate your preference order. At the end of term, you can apply for another team!

  • Bring your fun! We’re looking for topic ideas to post about during the week. For example, home organization, health information, exercise, travel, etc.

  • Entries must be received by Friday, March 12th. Terms start in April.

  • Email 2 of your favorite projects, a little about yourself and your blog address to tonya@stamphappens.com. Prior experience is not necessary.

Anyone who is interested in sponsoring us should contact Margie for information.

 

So, who wants to be on my team??? I just want to say that this is NOT a competition, but I need some friends who want to be on the Color Challenge Design Team!!! Won’t you join me???

All the teams are cooking up some awesome ideas, and I’m sure that everyone will have a blast. I can’t wait for it all to begin! You’ll probably recognize many if not all the Team Leaders. It will be great to work with all of them again!

So make sure you stop back here tomorrow for the Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop, and then get your entries for the Friends Having Fun Challenge over to Tonya! Have a great day!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
