Wild Flower Wednesday #26

I have someone special for you to meet…her name is Willow. She is one of the latest images that I’ve gotten from The Wild Flower Kids digi collection, and I think she is so sweet!

WFK-Embossed-Challenge-2

Isn’t she??? I love how she’s sitting, perched on a lily pad…her pretty wings, and her lovely face.

Wild Flower Kids is one of the sponsors over at Smeared & Smudged this month! If you play along with our Sketch Challenges, you have the chance of winning 5 digis (of your choice)! How cool is that? Jen Shults, owner and designer behind WFK, was kind enough to give the S&S DT some digis to play with. I already have several (‘cause I love ‘em!), but I just had to have Willow here and Iris…who you will see soon.

The latest WFK challenge came out today, since it is Wednesday, and the challenge was purr-fect for me! Embossing! Emboss anything, in any way. So, I decided to do some dry embossing. I took out my Fiskars plates, and embossed away on some Core’dinations cardstock. Then, I sanded it, so you can see the core color and cut it down with my trusty Coluzzle. So, I guess I should show you the whole card now right?

I also added some pink cardstock, which I inked, to the background. Willow is of course colored in with my pencils, and I added a couple dots of Stickles to her headband. But…I needed a bit more sparkle…

WFK-Embossed-Challenge-3

So, I used the Stickles in the center of my flowers too! These babies are from Prima. Aren’t they sweet?

So come on over to Smeared & Smudged. We’ve got a whole new look going over there, and some wonderful new changes! Plus, like I mentioned, if you play along with the Sketch Challenges, you have a chance at winning some Wild Flower Kids for yourself!

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 "
