Friends Having Fun Color Challenge #1!

Hello, hello! I am so excited! I am bringing you the the very first Friends Having Fun Challenge today! The first Monday of every month, I will give a Color Challenge! Here’s what I wrote on the FHF board:

Hello Everyone! I (Alison) am SO excited to be bringing you the very first Friends Having Fun Challenge! How lucky am I??? The first Monday of every month, the Kaleidoscope Krew and I will be bringing you a Color Challenge. Your mission is to then create a project using those colors! Anything goes! Make a card, scrapbook page, jewelry, altered item...anything you want! Just try to use colors as close to the ones I give you to work with! Wanna see the first set of colors???

And here is what I created:

I have had this card done for weeks now. When I first chose these colors, I was instantly inspired and knew exactly what I wanted to do. And since that doesn’t happen too often, I jumped on the project! I knew I wanted something vintage, hence this adorable image. I unfortunately cannot remember where I got this image though… if I figure it out, I will add it into this post! Then I knew I wanted to use something Anna Griffin style (which isn’t something I really ever do!). My mom happened to have Anna Griffin stamps that were exactly what I was looking for! Loved ‘em so much I used the same stamp on the inside and outside of the card!

Here’s a peek at the inside:

This stamp is from Verve, given to me by my wonderful friend, Tonya! The punch I used is from EK Success.

Here’s a close-up of those sweet little girls:

They are of course colored with my Spectracolor pencils. I just think this image is darling! I know! Totally not something I would usually do or say right? Well, I like to be multi-faceted!

I pop-dotted the heck out of this card! And I love the finished card. Just love it. This may very well be one of my favorites I’ve made in a long time! I just love the colors, the sweetness, and the vintage quality to it.

Now please go and see what the rest of the Kaleidoscope Krew has created! They are so talented, and super inspiring!

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

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 "
