StampInsanity Challenge #4: Stair Step Card

Greetings my fellow paper fanatics! It is time for another fabulous StampInsanity Challenge! This week, we were challenged to create a stair step card (something I never did before), while using one (or more) of Beth’s fabulous images. Learn how to make one of these yourself HERE. Check out my card!

There’s a lot going on here so please click on the image(s) to see it bigger! This was a lot of fun. And my husband was super impressed with it so that’s a bonus!

Tri-Fold-2

I used a whole lot of products, once again. I love being able to do that! I don’t really like sticking with one or two companies for a project. I love to mix it up! In this picture you’ll see that I used punches, embossing folders, Glimmer Mists, Alcohol Inks, ribbon and tags. Whew! That’s a whole lotta stuff! The sentiment is also from StampInsanity.

Here is a close up of Joszette. I colored her with my Spectracolor colored pencils. I think she is so cool! She’s so chill just sittin’ up on top of my card ain’t she?

Here’s another view of all the stuff I piled on to this card. I have to say, I was a bit apprehensive at first, since I hadn’t made a card like this before. But I am so happy with how it turned out! I will totally be making more of these cards! I’m so happy that we Groovy Gurlz are a part of such cool and unique challenges!

Hey! Did you know that StampInsanity is sponsoring the Friends Having Fun Blog as well as Smeared and Smudged??? I really hope you are a member of both! If not, please join, and then you can have a shot of winning some kick ass digis from Beth herself!

Now go check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! You are sure to be inspired! And then, join in on the challenge! Join the Insanity!

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 "
