DICC #28


Hello! It's April 1st, so there is a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge for you! Our newest itinerary is from Patricia Hays. As usual, the challenge is to use at least 3 items off of the list. Here is Patricia's itinerary:


1. humorous or punny sentiment


2. no glitter


3. suitable for a child under 10


4. 2 or more patterned papers


5. sponging



6. masculine



7. clean and simple



8. pearls



9. punched or die cut embellishments

10. brown

I decided to make an Easter card for Phoenix. Shhhhhh!!! Don't tell him! I had this cute bunny boy from The Greeting Farm for, like, ever...so I just had to use this cutie for my cutie. I used #'s 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 10.


Isn't he a sweet? He's got hair kinda like Phoenix's to. I used my watercolor markers and Copics to color the image in. I sponged on some Evergreen Bough Distress Ink (yes, with a cosmetic sponge) around the edge of the white circle.

I kept is uber simple...only one patterned paper (which is insane for me!), a cool piece of yarn and 3 rhinestones, because Phoenix loves rhinestones!

Thankfully, I have the girl version of this bunny too...so I better get hopping and color her up for Rhiannon! Please be sure to visit the DICC blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with for this itinerary. I hope you'll play along!

2 quick suggestions, you should also be sure to check out the Bombshell Blog today, as well as the Simply B Stamps Blog. There are some great things happening at both of those places! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I'm glad to be the guest designer at DICC, and it's fun seeing what other stampers are doing with the itinerary.

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 "
