StampInsanity #14: Betcha Bottom Dollar!

It’s time for a sketch challenge with the Groovy Gurlz of StampInsanity!!! The sketch is based on the good ‘ol Benjamin. Have a look-see!


Check out that loooong rectangle! Perfect for throwin’ a fat check inside right???


I realized that I don’t use Beth’s fabulous sentiments enough, so I figured this was the perfect card to use one! Originally, I was going to use one of her fabulous characters…but I loved using the sentiment in the middle instead!


Isn’t it beautiful? The phrase, the different fonts… I just love this sentiment! I printed it on white cardstock and then sprayed it with Patina and Lily Pad Glimmer Mist. See the bit of sparkle? You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger.


I used papers from Prism, Basic Grey, and K & Co. I used the paper with the circles, to mimic the rest of the circles in the design. The floral paper was used because I loved hot the colors worked with the other papers. It’s not your typical romantic card. It’s sweet and happy and fun. And isn’t it nice to be joyful about love? Gene and I have officially been together for 10 years now. Wow! An entire decade! And I think that is totally something to celebrate and be joyful about!

It’s your turn now! It’s time for you to create something using this fun sketch! Link up your blog post to the StampInsanity blog for your chance to win free digis!!! Want some more inspiration? Check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! Have a great day!

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 "
