Flutters

Greetings! It’s gonna be a very Sweet Pea Stamps week in my Pillow Book world! Not only will I be sharing several new Sweet Pea creations with you, but this is also Customer Submission week over at their blog, and I will be one of the customers that is featured this week! Not sure what day that will be yet, but I will be sure to let you know! On to today’s project!

I am sharing with you a new image by Terra Bidlespacher. It’s called Flutters, and I adore it. This little fairy is so sweet looking. Take a peek for yourself!

I had the image all colored up (using my watercolor markers and pencils) and then I saw the latest challenges from Sweet Pea Stampers (Scallops) and In a Sweet Pea Dream (Pink). I was immediately inspired!

I made her winds sparkly with Cotton Candy Stickles, and I thought that she needed a bit of a background, so I added a plethora of dots. I think it filled in the space nicely.

I layered a scallop-y kind of flower for a little dimension. I’m not usually one for buttons…but they have been making me smile lately. You might be seeing a lot more of them!

So what do you think? This card is just what I needed. March is by far my least favorite month all year, but this happy little card gave me a wonderful, cheery pick-me-up! I hope you will visit me again for more Sweet Pea goodness!  Tomorrow there will be a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and I’ll give you 3 guesses as to which stamp company I’ll be working with! Have an inspiring day!

Challenges:

Sweet Pea Stampers: Scallops

In a Sweet Pea Dream: Pink

Flutterby Wednesday: Photo Inspiration- I was inspired by the daisy’s centers…hence my little background dots

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 "
