SISC #37: Luscious Lace, the Fabric of our Lives!

It’s Thursday! Which means it’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge!!! This week our challenge to you is to create a project using lace and/or fabric! The possibilities are endless! And, what's really cool is that BOTH Wards are playing along this week! Here is my offering to the challenge…

Lace-1

I had really hoped to find some cream colored lace in my Mom’s HUGE stash…but we couldn’t find any at the time. So I opted to layer 2 types of beautiful trim for this Holiday card.

Lace-2

This is one of the 2 fabulous new Holiday Princess Maddies. I love them both…but here is something so magical about this one. She’s called Renaissance Princess. Totally up my alley!!! I guess it’s the candle and her pretty cape. I am so pleased with the way her hair came out. Doesn’t it look like it’s glowing from the candle? Would you like to see the rest of this pretty new digi set?

Holiday Princess Maddie 2010

I plan on using this candle Maddie throughout the year, for sure!

Lace-3

I used 3 pretty papers, and Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the card. It’s just a sweet, pretty card that I look forward to sending to someone special…if I can part with it! Am I the only one that makes a ton of cards, and then hordes them for myself???

Now it’s time for you to visit the rest of the fantabulous Groovy Gurlz! 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

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen

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 "
