Bombshell Pin-Up Challenge: Feel Up Your Bombshell

Hello! It’s been a very busy week here at my Pillow Book, and it will continue to be so throughout the week. Right now, I am sharing with you my latest Bombshell Stamps card, that I made for March’s Pin-Up challenge. This month, the lucky lady is my dear friend Alex. And she came up with a great challenge for us.

“I want you to add texture to your Bombshell creations. Use embossing, elements, pastes, fabrics, lace/ribbon, flock, textured papers, anything you want to make your creations beg to be touched.”

I decided to make a card for my Dad. Today, 11 years ago, he passed away. I hate this day with a passion. All I want to do is lock myself in my Mom’s house with her and my sisters and do nothing but cry. But, that’s not going to happen today. I’ve got a busy day with the kidlings, so I suppose that’s a good thing. It may keep my mind off of this awful 24 hours for a little while.

I already had a car from the Speed Shop set colored, and I used Alaine’s awesome coloring on black paper technique.

My Dad was a total car guy. He and I used to go to car shows together all the time. I remember doing this even when I was a little girl, when he would put his own car in shows. Today, his ashes are in that very same car.

I used a lot of texture, as per Alex’s challenge. The car is embossed, as is the sentiment. The background is dry embossed with a brick patterned texture plate from Fiskars. I roughed up the edges of that deep purple oval, and of course those 3 cabochons are begging to be touched.

I rubbed some color on to the textured areas to show them off a bit more. If you click on any of my pics, you can see them, and their texture, better.

Tonight I will be back with another Simply B Stamps preview. Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see all of the fabulous creations that all have a ton of texture. Thanks for a great challenge, Alex!

Daddy, I love you…………………………………. <3

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 "
