It’s the Playtime Release Day!

Hello Bloggy friends! It’s release day for the Simply B Stamps new Jude and the Rockers Collection: Playtime. I love this collection, as I’ve said all week. Today we are featuring Beep Beep Jude. And he is for sure, one of my faves of the set. You should have started this hop at the SBS Blog, so if you haven’t, please go back there to start at the beginning.  Before I share my project with you, I wanted to share Phoenix’s. when he saw this image, e just had to color it in for himself! And, he wanted to make me a card with him. Why? Because this image reminded him so much of himself!

He is stoked to be on my blog again! He’s so proud of himself, and so am I. Usually you see these cars in red and yellow, right? well, at Phoenix’s school, they have those, but they also have a yellow and teal one, which Phoenix prefers.

I love how he colored Jude! Now, here’s my project.

There’s Phoenix in the car at school! If he’s outside, then he is often seen driving this car. None of the others, just this one. Why? Because he loves teal. What other 5 year old knows what teal is? That’s my boy!!!

I used watercolor markers and Copics for the image of Jude.Isn’t he a cutie?

It may be hard to see if the pic is small (by clicking on any of them, you can see it bigger), but I added some glossy accents and clear microbeads in assorted places from some added points of interest and texture. I also embossed my title. This was a ful page to make (but…aren’t they all?)! Now it’s almost time for you to keep hopping!  First, here's the full hop list:
You start at the SBS blog
 Alison (me!)

Awww...Alison, does Nix love teal because you dye part of your hair that color? Or do you dye your hair that color because he loves it so? Either way, it is an awesome thing!

Nix, your coloring is fabulous! I think you color way better than i did when I was your age. You definitely have your mother's talent. Keep up the awesome work!

Alison, i love how you always color your SBS images to look like members of your family. This current line is perfect for your kiddos' layouts! Great work, as always, my dear friend!

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 "
