SISC #15 Inspiration Photo for a Birthday Card

Hello out there! It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge with the Groovy Gurlz! I’ve got an inspiration pic to share with you.

SISC15Bday

The mission is to chose one of the color combos on these fabulous cakes and make a birthday card! I love the colors on the cake on the right, so that’s what I used.

Beachy-Keen-1

So let me be straight with you. This card doesn’t look finished to me. I think I need to add some Stickles to the circles (in silver). It just needs a bit ‘o glam. But, it’s late and I am exhausted… so I will have to play around with it at a later time. I do however, love how Beach Maddie came out!

Beachy-Keen-2

She’s rockin’ a bit of a tan. And her hair has been kissed by the sun. Not your tyical birthday card, I know…but we like to groove a little differently here right? Plus, when I thought of this senti, I knew I had a winner!

Beachy-Keen-3

“Hope your Birthday is Beachy-Keen!” Cute right? Thanks! So other then the lack of glitz, I thing the card is super cute. And it’s just a teeny taste of what’s to come!!! (…hint)

So go and check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz projects now! You are sure to love ‘em all! And then, it’s your turn to play along! Don’t ya wanna win some free digis??? Join the insanity!!!

Hey Alison, thank you so much for always stopping by my blog to show me so love. I love your card. I almost did the same thing with the circles but less is more with a masculine card.

I love this!! You did an amazing job toning in her skin - geez, Girl!! Beautiful work! I think it looks fab - I always think my cards don't look finished and then I crush them into "overdone"... lol Great card!!

Too cute! I like how you carried out the polka dot theme in addition to the color scheme. I think it looks finished, but you do love your sparkle ;o)

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 "
