Release Day of Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween

Howdy! It’s release day for Simply Betty Stamps’ Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween line! Today I will be showing you 2 of the last 3 images. This is an adorable collection, and I know it’s going to sell like mad! So let’s take a peek at my creations. First up, is Vampiress Tilly.

Isn’t she fabulous? I love her look, her pose, everything about her! I colored her with my markers, and I am quite pleased with the end result. Isn’t her hair cool?
I’d like you to please take a look see at my background. I was lucky enough to win 2 stencils of my choice from Dreamweaver Stencils, and one of the ones I chose was this beautiful Damask background. I knew it would be purrfect for Halloween! I used it (incorrectly…I kinda made up my own way!) with Perfect Pearls from Ranger. It came out very soft and blurry…but I really like the end result! Next time I plan on using the stencil with paint. Yummy!

Look at her teeny fangs? Don’t you just love her? And now, on to Witchy Wednesday.

I asked for my husband’s opinion for how to color her hair, and he immediately told me to do it like my own. I was trying to get away from doing what I normally do, and I tend to color in my images wth hair similar to mine. But he insisted. He said that she was cute like me, so her hair needed to be like mine. :) So there ya go…she’s got teal and dark brown hair!

I embossed some beautiful rainbow glitter around her…if you click on this (or any other) picture, you can see it bigger. I love Wednesday’s little outfit! I would totally wear it!
So run on over now to the Simply Betty Stamps Store to pick up these cuties for yourself. And please visit the rest of the DT and show ‘em some love. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love both of your cards, Alison. How sweet of your hubby to tell you to color Wednesday's hair like yours because you're both cute. Excellent coloring as always & awesome on getting the free Dreamweaver stencils. Woot!

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
