Winter Bombshell Angel: Day 8 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Christmas

I must start off today’s post by writing a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! to my daughter, Rhiannon. She is 2 years old today!!! I love you, Baby Rhi!!!

On to my card…remember the last Bombshell Stamps card I had made? Click HERE to check it out.  I had used Bombshell Angel along with stamps from the Pin-stripes set to make wings. Here’s another version of that idea…but done a whole lot softer.

Winter-Angel-1

Don’t these Pin-stripes make fab wings too? I’m telling you, you’ve gotta get that set!!! I colored my Angel using my EK Success Watercolor Markers, and I embossed the wings with a bright, shiny gold. The paper I used is definitely not Christmas-y…not even really Wintery, so I added the “Winter” definition stamp to kind of get that feeling of Winter in your head.

Winter-Angel-2

The definition was stamped in a pearly blue, and there are touches of glitter on the patterned paper. And, I added 3 Dew Drops (stuck down with Stickles), to the bottom of the card.

Winter-Angel-3

I think it’s really pretty, and totally different from that other card. Bombshell Stamps are so darn versatile! Now please go on and visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. But first…here’s a look at me with my sweet, little Birthday Girl!!! This was taken on Sunday, when we had a teeny little party for her, before my husband had to go away on business.

Your card is gorgeous, and those are great wings too. I like that you didn't use wintery paper or images but totally get the feel after you used the definition.
Happy Birthday Baby Rhi! She's adorable :)

Happy 2nd Birthday. Birthday #2 here was so much fun for us. Now we'll be able to look forward to the second's second birthday in 2 years.

I love the soft colours you've used for your bombshell. I really think it's fantastic when you are able to make use of an image for another use and the pinstripes for wings is inspired

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
