Happy 100th Challenge to Haunted Design House!

Haunted Design House is celebrating their 100th challenge! And with that, not only comes some amazing blog candy-corn, but a fantastic challenge as well. The challenge is Varying Visages of Vincent. Price, of course! He would have been 100 this year. I still remember him on Sesame Street and Scooby Doo. Those were some of my favorite episodes of both of those shows. Se? Even then I was twisted! ;)

So I found an awesome image on THIS PAGE and knew I needed to use it. How could you not think of Vincent Price when you think of Thriller? And vice versa!

The image was so damn cool that I didn’t want to over do it with a lot of schtuff…but I did feel the need to add 3 layers of blood and goo to the top of the card. And tombstones. I needed tombstones. Both punches are from the Devil Herself, Martha Stewart.

I of course inked the edges of pretty much everything, and I scratchy-wrote Thriller. Oh, and there’s some Vintage Distress Stickles blobbed here and there too.

Here’s to Mr. Price! And here’s to another 100, Haunted Design House!!! Thanks for always being so amazing! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is great! I've always loved Vincent Price. I used to watch Faerie Tale Theater all the time, and I loved him as the magic mirror in the Snow White episode.:)

This is so awesome Alison! Love how you colored it and added the drippy goo and tombstones. VP was the master of horror, and a funny guy too.

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


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 . 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
