Bombshell Angel…Victoria’s Secret-Style

I just got 3 new Bombshell Stamps sets in the mail the other day, and I cannot begin to tell you how stoked I am! I had gotten this idea a few weeks ago, and couldn’t wait to try it out! Well, needless to say, it worked out perfectly, and I am really excited to do it again!

What’s this idea you ask? Well first, let me show you the December Bombshell Sketch, which is what I used for my card. I flipped it on it’s side.

December

On to my idea. Have you seen the fabulous Pinstripes sets from Bombshell? They’re amazing. As I was looking at them, I realized that they would make amazing wings! Perfect for the Holidays, or any time that you want a sexy angel/fairy. As I made the card, I started thinking about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that was on the other night (boy how I NEED those wings for myself!!!), and this totally would have worked on that runway! Check it out…

Pin-Stripes-Angel-1

What do you think? I used three different sets! Angel, Man’s Ruin, and of course, Pinstripes. I was also heavily inspired by this week’s Macabre Monday, which is to use 2 or more patterned papers. I used four. Go me! ;}

Pin-Stripes-Angel-2 

How perfect are those pinstripes for wings??? Wait until you see what else I am cooking up with these sets! Heavenly!

Pin-Stripes-Angel-3

I broke out the Cracked Edge Punch from MS again. I thought it worked really well with this card.

Now on to some important business. As I mentioned in my “Bombshell’s Galore!” post, the Design Team is having a contest right now, and we need YOUR votes! Please click HERE to visit the Bombshell forum’s thread to vote for your favorite project! Of course I hope you choose me…(I really love my bracelet), but please vote for your favorite! Thanks!!!

Be sure to visit me again tomorrow for my latest card for the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Christmas. Have an inspiring 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

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 "

Changes

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 alisonheikkila.com . 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
