StampInsanity Challenge 11: Inspiration Picture

It’s time for another awesome StampInsanity Challenge! This week we were to use an inspiration picture. Here it is:

Isn’t it a rockin’ t-shirt??? I totally want it! And here’s the card that I made.

So at first, I was totally stoked about making this card. I colored in this version of Maddie and I LOVED her! Her dress came out perfect, I was diggin’ her hair, and I knew the card was gonna rock. I cut her out, and put her on my workspace while I was making my Bombshell Hop card. So somehow, some way, my poor little Maddie got ink on her face. Right by her mouth. And under her eye. Freakin’ great right?

Now I had to think quickly. I knew I didn’t have time to color in a new Maddie, so how was I going to fix her??? Well, after a clot of “concealer” on her pretty face, and a whole lotta Glaze pen, Maddie now looks like she had a bit of Botox. Needless to say, I am not happy. I should have used a regular marker, but I thought the Glaze would be pretty and keep your eye away from the mess. Wrong. Oh well. But her dress still looks fab!

I used a bunch of punches and dies for this card too. And 5 different papers!

After the disaster with Maddie’s face, I got a little discouraged about the card… but I really do like how it turned out in the end (except for those damn fish lips!). So I am sending you off now. Off to see the rest of the Groovy Gurlz’s fabulous creations. Enjoy! Have an inspiring day!

Ugh...so frustrating to spend so much time on an image and then have something stupid like a little ink smudge ruin it all! Happens to me all the time! Your mistake turned into a little hottie though! Her dress and hair are absolutely fabulous!!

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 "
