Burtonesque Dolls: Seeing Double & Jude and the Rockers Preview: Brittany

There is a new challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls today plus, it’s Day 3 of the Jude and the Rockers by Simply Betty Stamps. Let’s start with The Dolls!

Tweedle Dee Tweedle Dum. I’m seeing doubles! Make a project using twins! As I mentioned last week, we were throwing a Very Merry Un-Birthday Tea Party for my kidlings. It was on Saturday. Rhiannon just so happened to get a beautiful (Disney) Belle dress, and matching Bell doll! She was (is) so excited! I just knew I had to use that for today’s project. My little girl and her twin…

I can’t even tell you how much she loves this doll and her dress. Doesn’t she look adorable?

You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger, My journaling basically says when she got her dress and her “twin,” and how excited she is about it.

The kidlings helped me with this page too. Which is always fun, of course! :)

On to today’s preview. Say hello to Brittany!

Isn’t she cute? Her hair is so spunky, and I love her outfit. She’s got a wee bit of sass…but she’s mostly sweet, which is why I used the “sweet” sentiment in the upper left corner.

I used lots of dots of turquoise Stickles, since my card was so simple. It needed some glitz to make it a wee bit more exciting.

This card’s colors really didn’t photograph well for some reason. The background color is a true yellow, but it’s looking a little greenish in these pictures. But it’s mostly about Brittany, right? And she’s cute no matter what the lighting is like!

Remember, that all of The Rockers will be available starting this Friday, and you have 2 glorious weeks to play along with The Burtonesque Dolls. Please be sure to visit the Simply Betty blog and the Dolls’ blog for even more wonderful creations Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back tomorrow! Not only is it the Bombshell Hump Day Hop, but I will have another layout featuring the next “Rocker!” 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

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 "
