Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Hello! It’s time for another blog hop…Tiddly Inks style! The theme of this hop is Friends are the Flowers of Life. You can find all of the details HERE. For my card, I used Pinky.

I colored Pinky with my watercolor markers. And I did blonde hair! Which is something I never do. Here’s a close up.

I want that cupcake! Love the skully on top! For the rest of the card, I just played around with different papers and colors. I made sure that most of the circles had flowers in them, because of the theme, and of course, my sentiment goes with the theme as well. It says “you are my best friend.” I “built” it with words that I have from K & Co. If you notice, they are all different colors. But to make them work together a little better, I inked the edges of each word in the same pretty shade of green. This unifies them a bit.

I added a few blobs of Stickles for some sparkle…cause how could I not add some sparkle to this card? ;) I think it’s a sweet card.

There is a lot more hopping to be done! Be sure to hop back to Tiddly Inks to see the other wonderful creations!

For those of you that frequent my blog, I have some exciting news! I sold my first Washer Necklace on Etsy! I am so, so excited! And I promptly re-listed it so that perhaps I can sell some more! The blog post for it, in case you missed it, is HERE. Thanks to all of the kind words I’ve received about them. They seem to have a pretty nice following!

And thanks to all of you hoppers that are visiting for the first time! Have an inspiring day!!!


So fab! Has an art journal feel to it for sure! So gorgeous. Love the border punch as the earth, clever detail.

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 "
