DICC #27: Jingle’s Itinerary

Greetings! It’s time for another Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! I’m gonna warn you, this is a toughie! I, myself struggled quite a bit with this one. So I decided to enlist Phoenix to help me out. Truthfully, I’m not loving the end result. I may need a re-do. Phoenix likes it, but I think we’ve had better collaborative cards just this week alone. So bare with me, this is a learning experience for all of us.

Jingle’s Itinerary:

1. Squirrel

2. Raccoon

3. Monkey

4. Moustache

5. Gnome

6. Orange

7. Grass

8. Paper Piecing

9. Colored Pencil Coloring

10. Rainbow (interpret as you will)

I used #’s 3, 6, 7, 10. I don’t own a lot of things listed in this itinerary. But I really liked this monkey, and the idea of incorporating a rainbow….but I didn’t know how to do it. So Phoenix and I decided it would be cool to stamp my sentiment as a rainbow, and have the monkey purple.

By the way, I used the latest Scrappy Chick Sketch for this card. I changed it slightly, but I think Ms. Cyndi will be ok with my alterations! :)

I inked in some grass under the monkey, and I used some orange trim to make that color stand out a bit more. Phoenix has a couple of birthday parties coming up, so I’ll probably let him use this card for one of his friends. Please play along with this challenge, I want to see how much better you all can make this itinerary! ‘Cause I am seriously lacking inspiration on this one! :) So visit the rest of the DICC gals to see what they’ve concocted…Thanks for stopping by!

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 "
