Darque Obsession

Hello my Lovelies! Welcome to a spectacular release! My fang-tastic friend Tonya is releasing her very first set of digital stamps! And it is SOOOO up my alley ali! ;}


How friggin’ amazing are these chicks??? Yes Tonya, I am obsessed. I can do SO much with these images! You should all know by now how crazy I am for all things Vamp… this is no exception! Wanna see what I made with “The Seductress”?


What do you think? I think she’s gorgeous! I NEED to have that dress (even my husband says so!)! I know, ya need a close up right?


She is of course colored in with my colored pencils. And I added Burgundy Stickles to her crosses, and some touches of my Sakura pens. Please click on any of the images to see them bigger.


Here you can see the glimmer from the gel pens. I tried something different with her hair. I wanted it blue black obviously, like I’ve seen some folks do with Copics. I struggled a bit with this. I like how it came out, but it wasn’t what I was after. Any suggestions?


When I was younger (like, 12) I was totally into decorating t-shirts. It was my thing, ya know? I lived for it. So I had/have a bajillion rhinestones from way back then… And I thought the card needed some pop… but wasn’t sure of what. So I remembered of the huge rhinestone box that I have been stowing away for the past 2 decades (that sounds SO weird to me! Am I really that old???), and decided to bust that bitch out! Enter the super huge rhinestones. Seriously, that oval one is the size of a quarter! But I think it was just what the Doctor ordered!

I Glimmer Misted the background, added some cool paper, and a loop of picot ribbon. Ooh! And let’s not forget those fab Kaiser pearls in black!

So, are you into it??? Can you handle this??? Don’t you want to color her in??? You can of course, only get these sinfully beautiful images at Tonya’s shop. Click HERE to go straight to these gorgeous creatures. You can also visit Tonya’s blog to see more creations with these fabulous new digis.

I love them because they are so different from what’s out there. And again, they are totally my style! I will be coloring them all in many times over, I assure you! And yes, you will get to see all of my many versions! So if you’re not already… come and get Obsessed with the rest of us!

You don't need ANY advice on that blue-black hair! YOU ROCKED IT! (but, I'm no pencil expert so I have no idea if this works.. maybe try a blue with a gray overlay?) I love that you always come up with cool stuff to do on your cards! I can't wait to see more from you on these! Thank you for showcasing for me!

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


Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
